Clean Skincare + Makeup for March

Here comes the sun and smiles this month with Jillian Dempsey and Kypris products. Vegan, cruelty-free, and all around good-for-you.

Jillian Dempsey Cheek Tint in Sunny

For an effortless sun-kissed flush, I pat Jillian Dempsey’s Cheek Tint in Sunny on the apples of my cheeks and blend a bit onto my nose. This creamy formula helps protect the skin barrier with shea butter, coconut oil, and sunflower wax. Light enough to wear in the humidity, this stays on even when blowing my nose. What’s not to love about this small-but-mighty tint!

Spot Stick Concealer

When I want to mattify a breakout or dark circle, Jillian Dempsey’s Spot Stick Concealer is my girl. Just like the Cheek Tint, it contains skin loving ingredients such as vitamin E and sunflower wax to treat zits while covering them up. I dab the smallest amount onto my problem area and blend with my fingertips to help the product warm up and blend out. Then I can go about my day with a confident smile on my face!

Gold Bar

Bedtime relaxation calls for Jillian Dempsey’s Gold Bar. A 24K gold-plated vibrating bar with 6000 rotations per minute! Woah. I use it for lymphatic drainage to sculpt and depuff my face. First by prepping with a cleansed face, I add some drops of serums/oils, and turn on the Gold Bar. It’s buzzing at first seems intense but once it touches my skin, I gently move up my chin, neck, and forehead to soothe and smooth. My favorite spots are my temples, which get ten minutes on each side for some ultra de-stressing. I tend to do this for about an hour, just because it feels so incredibly relaxing!

Kypris Duo

Antioxidant Dew

My favorite serum to use with my Gold Bar is Kypris’ Antioxidant Dew. A brew of sea algae extracts, waltheria indica, dipalmitoyl hydroxyproline, vitamins C & E, and superoxide dismutase with ferulic acid, this little blue bottle is literally magical. Antioxidant Dew has been a saving grace in healing my chapped skin after blowing my nose all day (thanks, allergies). I apply a little extra around my nose and cheek area, after using my Gold Bar. In the morning, I notice the pain subsiding and a slight glow to my nose. Move over Rudolph, my nose is the glowiest!

Beauty Elixir I: 1,000 Roses

If I want a more nourishing oil, Beauty Elixir I: 1,000 Roses is actually a bed of roses for my skin. Made of Bulgarian roses, this mystical bottle feels dreamt up by Venus herself! The oil is a perfect blend between thin and thick: the goldilocks of oils. 1,000 Roses also doubles as aromatherapy as I apply it and use my Gold Bar. The scent of roses transports my senses to a field far, far away and an eternal spring. March may come in as a lion but Kypris helps to evoke that lamb energy, how lovely!
