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 made?  Purpicks is described as the “Trip Advisor” for nontoxic skin care. It is a user-generated reviews platform which is “the portal for unvarnished truths about an unrivaled selection of nontoxic and organic beauty and skin care products.”

This year, I was asked to take part 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 typical mom trying to eat well, exercise when I can, sleep more, stress less and use skin care that makes me feel better. All while stumbling and trying again the next day.

CertClean is a certification for safe skin care. 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 which prioritizes human health over the use of organic and natural ingredients. Their goal is to make safer skin care the new norm.


Clean Beauty Awards

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

I was given all of these products to test. I followed a list of qualification 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 judgement without bias.  After trying and falling in love with some of these brands I became an *affiliate which means if you buys 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 a variety of products, in combination, allowed me to find my favorites.  Only one product had spf in it which I prefer in my daily moisturizer. I love both toners and find they tightens and balance my face. The biggest differences is in how they absorb. Everyone is so different in their opinions because everyone’s faces are so different.  I find that 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 mostly black, which is my favorite with a hunter which was very pretty. Once again, different situation, different use. I used the pencils and gel for work and day time to evening time and saved the liquid for special nights out and events. I love eye liner and I love make up so this category was fun to try…. especially because they are vegan, cruelty free, recycled and clean.

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

Judging and speaking with Jenise Lee, the mastermind behind all this, has made me think a lot 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!
