Honey Girl Organics Review! | Hawaiian Skincare | Organic & Cruelty-Free

Aloha, darlingggggs!!!  So excited to review some more products from one of my favorite Hawaiian skincare lines: Honey Girl Organics! They are an organic, cruelty-free & gmo-free skincare company located on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. If you have been following my blog or YouTube channel for a while, you have probably seen my previous review of two of my all time favorite products by Honey Girl Organics: The Lotion Face & Body and HoneyGlo Regenerating Face Serum.  Both of these skin-soothing gems are in my skincare routine 7 days a week.

Recently, Honey Girl Organics (HGO) sent me a few more products to try out, in which I am also head over Hawaiian heels in love.  One of the most remarkable things about this line is that they include only a handful or two of natural & organic ingredients in their products.  All ingredients of which we can pronounce and don’t need to run for a dictionary for enlightenment.  This speaks even more volumes to the testament of outstanding quality and hydration power of their products, WITHOUT a ton of bizarre ingredients.

These luxurious, emollient-rich gems outshine some of my best high-end skincare products.  My fellow dry skin peeps (and those of you with sensitive skin) would definitely appreciate one of the latest products I’ve been loving by HGO: the Face & Eye Cream.  This double duo cream for face & eyes works wonders.  Oil-based, this cream handles dry skin like none other!  I like to use it for eye & facial massages before bed.  Its herbal, aromatherapeutic scent is amazingggggg and the teeniest, tiniest drop goes a longgggg way. The compact jar size is also a great 2-n-1 product for traveling and long flights that drain the moisture from our skin!

Honey Girl Organics Face & Eye Cream is the perfuect all-in-one travel product for those long flights that drain the moisture from our skin!

Before makeup application, I have been prepping my skin with the HGO Propolis, Rose, Neroli Facial Toner.  After my makeup is good-to-go I give my skin another spritz with this herbal-scented toner to lock things in.  Infused with only seven skin-calming, clearing, & refreshing ingredients, this toner is sooooooo relaxing after “a day.”  I may have to pop it in the fridge for a cool skin refreshing pick-me-up in hot L.A. summer days  🙂

The last product in my video review is the Honey Girl Organics Facial Cleanser & Makeup Remover.  It is a gentle, oil-based cleanser for dry and/or sensitive skin.  I like to use it for stubborn waterproof eyeliner & lipsticks.  When I use it to remove lipstick, I take a cotton pad to apply the cleanser.  Then I gently swipe away the lipstick with the cleanser, and after I’m done my lips feel exfoliated and as if they have a light, soothing layer of lip balm.  This cleanser is sooooo hydrating.  Love it!!!

Honey Girl Organics: Organic, Cruelty-Free, Gmo-Free, & Gluten-Free Hawaiian Skincare

Alohaaaaa everyone! I am very excited to introduce to you my new favorite Hawaiian skincare line: Honey Girl Organics! This line is organic, cruelty-free, gmo-free, gluten-free, and made with only the freshest & natural ingredients! Each bottle of their skin food is individually handcrafted in small batches from the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii! If you have dry skin like I do, “The Lotion Face & Body” and HoneyGlo Rejuvenating Serum are two products you must get your hands on!

Honey Girl Organics Hawaiian Skincare | The Lotion Face & Body & HoneyGlo Rejuvenating Serum are the latest additions to my holy grail skincare arsenal!

They have made their way into my holy grail skincare arsenal FAST! Because they are made by hand, you want to make sure and give them a good shake before each use. The fresh, natural ingredients like organic honey, jojoba oil, hemp see oil, carrot seed oil, olive oil, & rosehip seed oil are so soothing on my skin. I’ve always been a big fan of organic honey in my skincare regimens & it is a primary ingredient in Honey Girl products! The Lotion can be used on both face & body, but I prefer savoring every drop for my face. It is a very rich moisturizer and a tiny bit goes a very long way. I really appreciate that about these products and foresee them lasting for a long time. The Lotion also works in complete synergy with my makeup & has replaced the need for a primer. Loveee that!

The Lotion Face & Body is an 8oz bottle of skin food that nurtures my skin day and night!

One small drop of the serum is also all you need.  That one drop is so emollient that it could even replace your moisturizer for the entire day! I like wearing both products in conjunction with one another at night, as insurance for lasting hydration while I sleep. I wake up and it feels like I don’t even need to add moisturizer!!

HoneyGlo Rejuvenating Serum is so rich & emollient that one small drop is enough to replace a moisturizer for an entire day!  Obsessed with it’s aromatherapeutic scent!

Also, if you are into aromatherapy like I am, the serum is a 2-in-one soul-soother that hydrates skin & uplifts your senses all at the same time! It smells similar to one of my holy grail lip balms by Dr. Hauschka. I love the herbal fragrance so much that I asked Honey Girl what ingredient smells so divine in their serum. They told me it is from the ingredient “propolis”, which is made by bees. Good to know for when I go on the hunt for a perfume containing this divine ingredient :))) So if your skin is needing a moisture boost, then these two nurturing skin food products are the ones for you! Hope you guys and gals enjoy my review video of this wonderful line! Mahalo! ❤ ❤ ~Kelle

November Favorites: Skincare, Highlighters, & Heat-Free Big Hair Styling Tips!

TGIF! It’s about that time for November favorites (in December lol).  I went a little highlighter crazy with my favorites this time! Some days we just need a pick-me-up and highlighters do just that!  I’ve loved layering my highlighters & blush over the past few weeks.  I wore the layered, highlighted cheeky look I’ve been swooning for, in my favorites video, so that you can see how they look on the skin (minimally) in the daytime.  My absolute favorite blush right now is Maybelline’s Dream Bouncy Blush in the shade Coffee Cake.

Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush, Shade: Coffee Cake | November Favorites 

There will be nooooo clouds in your coffee with this blush, let me tell ya!!! The copper, peachy sheen beautifies the skin flawlessly!  I’ve been wearing it with pale skin, and also with winter self-tanned skin for castings.  The bouncy, cream formula blends like a dream and dries to a subtle, glowing finish.  For not-so-subtle, I just apply more lol.  All skin tones can rock this copper beauty!  Layered on top of this blush, I’ve been applying Wet N Wild’s Fergie Highlighter in the shade, Photo Bomb.

Then I blend Measurable Difference’s Baked Face & Body Highlighter in the shade, Copper, on top of that!  This baked shade is such a soft powder and also looks great with a tan!

I just loveeee the look of the coppery bouncy blush paired with the gold & copper highlighter shades from Wet N Wild & Measurable Difference, respectively. Another highlight I’ve enjoyed wearing on its own, with no other makeup products, is L’Oreal’s Touch On Color Highlighter in the shade, Golden Amplifier.

This light, creamy golden highlighter is great for on the go, thanks to its compact size. If I don’t feel up for wearing makeup, I just swipe it on my cheeks and eyes and I’m good. Also, gold is the perfect highlighter shade to rock on the cheekbones for the holidays!  My go to winter self-tanner has been Vita Liberata’s Organic Extra Rich Self Tanning Lotion in the shade, Dark.

It gives my skin a natural, bronzed look without being too tan (as we are in the midst of winter ;).  I love that it is an organic formula, applies streak-free, and is a true bronze tanner without the orange tones! Also in my November favorites video is my big hair don’t care, heat-free styling secret: VELCRO ConAir rollers.

ConAir Velcro rollers are my secret to BIG Bridget Bardot hair! | November Favorites

Bridget Bardot hair is VERY possible with these fuss-free & heat-free curlers.  I like to wrap my wet hair in them and secure them to my noggin with bobby pins.  Sleeping in them is not the most enjoyable, but it is my preferred method.  I think I have just gotten used to zzzzzz’g with a gigantuan velcro rainbow pinned on my head lol.  After the hair has dried completely, gently remove the curlers, and helloooooo Bridget!  Sometimes the hair is so big that I have to tame it down a bit with some hairspray.  Total change of subject: for quick hydration for my lips, I’ve been loving my EOS balms.

EOS balms | Flavors: Coconut Milk & Summer Fruit | November Favorites

The coconut milk  (pink striped packaging) is my new favorite 🙂  Removing makeup has been easy and refreshing with Garnier’s Micellar Water (the one with the pink cap).  It will remove waterproof eye makeup if you saturate your cotton pad and apply and hold it to the eye area for about a minute.  Essential Oil’s Honey & Aloe Facial Mask has been giving my skin some extra hydration when it needs it.  I was sold with the words honey & aloe, two great skin ingredients.  It is a creamy mask that is amazing for dry skin.  For extra body hydration, I have been loving Mineral Fusion’s Unscented Body Lotion.  It is organic with uber-hydrating ingredients like glycerin & coconut oil, and really does provide 24 hours worth of hydration!  This is the perfect after-shave lotion for dry legs!  I’ve even used it on my face here and there with no problemos!  If you liked my November Favorites Video, please be sure to give it a like & please be sure to subscribe for more of my videos! Happy weekend, loves!  Muahhhh!!! xoxo Kelle ❤ ❤ ❤
