clean beauty reviews and awards 2018

clean beauty reviews

Clean beauty reviews are so important! How do I know which one to buy? How do I know if they are made the way I want them to be? Our pick is described as the “Trip Advisor” for nontoxic skincare. It is a user-generated reviews platform that is “the portal for unvarnished truths about an unrivaled selection of nontoxic and organic beauty and skincare products.”

This year, I was asked to participate as a judge for the CertClean beauty awards. The 4th annual clean beauty awards partnered with Purpicks. I was honored to be asked, being I’m not the typical green beauty blogger. I’m just a regular mom trying to eat well, exercise, sleep more, stress less, and use skincare that makes me feel better—all while stumbling and trying the next day again.

CertClean is a certification for safe skincare. They “help shoppers easily discover beauty and personal care products formulated without ingredients that have been recognized to cause harm to human health.” CertClean is a certification that prioritizes human health over using organic and natural ingredients. Their goal is to make safer skincare the new norm.

Clean Beauty Awards

The Certclean and Purpick clean beauty awards showcase the best of the bunch by awarding and promoting the best performing sanitary beauty products.

I was given all of these products to test. I followed a list of qualifications that I rated each product on. My categories were face care and eyeliner. I scored them based on overall performance, ease of use, and recommendation. I gave my honest review and judgment without bias. After trying and falling in love with some of these brands, I became an *affiliate which means if you buy from my links, I will be rewarded….and so will you! These products are real winners in my mind!

Clean Beauty Face


The face category ranges from toners to serums, moisturizers, creams, toners, and dry oil. My face is sensitive. Trying various products in combination allowed me to find my favorites. Only one product had SPF, which I prefer in my daily moisturizer. I love both toners and see them tighten and balance my face. The most significant difference is in how they absorb. Everyone is so different in their opinions because everyone’s faces are so different. Some days, a thinner moisturizer works, and other days, thick cremes feel better. Time of day, weather, and conditions helped determine my favorites. These were hard to judge, and I’d recommend so many!

Clean Beauty Eye


The eyeliners range from liquid to pencil to gel. They are primarily black, my favorite with a hunter, which was very pretty. Once again, different situations, different use. I used the pencils and gel for work and daytime to evening time and saved the liquid for special nights and events. I love eyeliner and makeup, so this category was fun to try mainly because they are vegan, cruelty-free, recycled, and clean.

My favorite eyeliner was made by Eleve cosmetics*. This is because the eyeliner is so smooth with a unique gel tip that smudges beautifully. Since loving eyeliner, I now use eye shadow, face makeup, mascara, and lip glossEleve has excellent discounts, and I love their sunscreen this summer.

Judging and speaking with Jenise Lee, the mastermind behind all this has made me think much more about my beauty products. I look forward to new adventures in clean green beauty.

Know better. Buy Better. Live Better.

    You’re the perfect choice for a judge…a real, down-to-earth person with limited time. I can relate! If a product can’t stand up to people like us, they will find a small market.

    That is kind of you to say, and so true. Not everyone can be a die hard green user. I find that small changes make big differences and I think a lot of us can relate to that. Thanks for your comment!
