What I LOVED in August ...

I fell in love with some amazing products last month and these are at the top of the list:

Pulp Story Wellness Blasts: I'm LOVING these for a quick boost of energy and nutrients. These blasts come in four flavors and have a base of turmeric, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory root. It helps your body fight free radicals that lead to aging and inflammation. And, it's cold-pressed immediately to retain all of its vital nutrients! YES! In cold-pressed form, turmeric is extremely bioavailable, meaning your body can put it to use boosting your immune system and energizing you right away, rather than using a lot of resources to process it. As cold season approaches-I'll be stocking my fridge them!

Beautycounter Tint Skin: I've never been a foundation wearer. Foundation always felt like a mask to me ... and if I'm going to wear a mask, it better be Halloween. I've been pretty lucky in life to have fairly clear skin - but as the clock ticks on and the years go by, I've begun to develop age spots, so I like a bit of coverage to even things out. This hydrating foundation does just the trick. It blends in to my skin really nicely, so it doesn't look or feel like I'm wearing anything, but it helps cover imperfections and even my skin tone. And I love that it contains sodium hyaluronate, which is a natural moisture magnet that reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Can't beat that!

Primally Pure Everything Spray: Who doesn't want a spray that does everything?! I've been loving this spray as a facial toner, but it's also good to spray after shaving to prevent ingrown hairs or as a quick refresh under your arms if there is no deodorant in sight! It only has 9 ingredients, which can all be recognized and pronounced. Ingredients are the first thing I look at when buying anything - whether it's food, body or home products. Each ingredient packs a good punch, but my favorite is magnesium - because over 80% of us (including myself) are deficient and magnesium supports over 300 reactions in the body.

Daily Harvest Smoothies: Life has been busy and Daily Harvest smoothies have been SO helpful because all I have to do is add almond milk to a cup full of healthy, nutrient-dense ingredients and blend. They have a ton of different smoothie flavors and I haven’t tried one that I didn’t like, but my favorites are Acai+Cherry, Cold Brew+Almond and Apple+Greens. I will often add a scoop or two of Further Food Collagen to the blender to boost the protein and I’m off and running!
