End of Summer Wishlist

Can you believe summer is almost over?  Just a couple more weeks and it'll be September!  I've been good about spending over the summer and haven't bought much, but - or maybe because of that - the trusty wishlist has not been getting any smaller.  Since it's been a while I thought I'd share some of the things that have caught my eye these last few weeks.  



Sudsatorium The Bronze Age
My pale skin is more apt to burn than tan in the sun and I don't self tan, but there are still times when I'd like to look a little less ghostly.  Prtty Peashun has gotten a lot of blog love lately, but it's this similar sounding lotion from Canadian brand Sudsatorium that's snagged my attention.  Made with avocado oil and cocoa butter, as well as soothing seaweed and aloe, and said to add a bronze glow, it sounds like a dreamy treat for your skin.  

Aster & Bay Brightening Toner
I've been looking for a great toner to add to my routine and Aster & Bay's Brightening Toner sounds like just the thing.  Soothing aloe vera is combined with nutrient-rich sea kelp extract, stimulating ginger essential oil, and licorice extract, well known for it's skin brightening properties.  I love that the toner is also free of glycerin, since depending on the concentration, it's an ingredient my skin does not always tolerate well.  

Camp Skincare Vanilla Moon Body Oil
I remember thinking this body oil looked nice when I first came across Camp Skincare a couple months ago, but it wasn't until this week, when they posted this photo on Instagram, that I really knew I'd have to pick up a bottle one day soon.  Sweet almond oil is triple infused with pure, organic vanilla seeds and then blended with evening primrose, jojoba, and borage seed oils and Vitamin E.  "Capture the magical glow of moonlight with antioxidant-rich plant oils and an intoxicating vanilla scent."  Yes, please!

Nudus Lipstick
Nudus' beautiful lipsticks and gorgeous packaging have me captivated.  Pictured here is Halo, a neutral pink, but I've also been scoping out Naked, a pretty nude.  The lipsticks are made with quality, antioxidant-rich oils like pomegranate, raspberry, and kiwi seed, and the entire 10-color range is both gluten free and free from synthetic dyes.  The $42 price tag means that these will likely stay on the wishlist for a bit, but they're so pretty, I had to include them all the same!

Laurel Whole Plant Organics Gentle Travel Set
I've had my eye on Laurel (formerly Sequoia Beauty) for a while and all the beautiful photos from A Night for Green Beauty last week have seriously re-piqued my interest.  The travel sets look like the perfect way to sample the line.  Each set includes a cleanser, elixir, and serum tailored to one of three skin types, plus the Almond Grain Exfoliant and a lip treatment.

Gressa Skin Dirty Pretty Things
Paula from Naturally Paula mentioned Dirty Pretty Things in a tweet and it's been on my mind ever since.  It's a dry mask made with rhassoul clay, licorice root, pink rose, neem leaf, Vitamin C, and whole host of other herbs and spices.  Sounds amazing!

So that's what's on my wishlist...what's on yours?  Have you used any of  these products?

    1. That's awesome! You'll have to let me know how you get on with everything. I've been secretly eyeing Sudsatorium for months now :)

    2. I just received a few samples from Sudsatorium today and I am skeptical that the company isn't listing all of the ingredients. A lot of their products have a strong synthetic smell to them which seems too good to be true. I'm not sure what to think at this point. If the fragrance really is from all-natural ingredients then these products at first glance seem really amazing

    3. Oh no. I don't remember seeing them list any scent components other than essential oils/absolutes, which are obviously limited in the kinds of scents they can produce. They do sell their products in the Detox Market and a few smaller markets near me, so I think I'll try to check them out in person rather than ordering online. That's very disappointing if it's true, but I appreciate the warning!
