Things We Love: Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper by Jane Iredale

jane iredale lip plumper

 

Who doesn’t want fuller lips?! We do! But it’s hard to imagine how to get them without doing something drastic, or invasive. That is, until we found Sugar & Butter Lip Exfoliator/Plumper by Jane Iredale!  This incredible lip plumper uses natural ingredients to give you fuller lips and boy, does it work.

 

First, the organic brown sugar gently removes dull, dry skin. With no chemical preservatives or synthetic dyes to worry about, eat the sugar crystals right off your lips! Then, the tinted lip plumper with shea butter and peptides will moisten and plump!  It’s a two-for-one system that we just can’t get enough of! You can actually feel this plumper working when the cool mint and ginger ingredients start doing their job! We’re in love.

Feed Your Beauty: Mini Roasted Strawberry Almond Meal Muffins

The other day, we went on a love rant about strawberries (see the post here and you will understand why). And now we just have to share this delicious recipe for Mini Roasted Strawberry Almond Meal Muffins!  Not only do they contain skinful strawberries but they are so cute and tasty that they definitely deserve an appearance at your breakfast table! YUM!

strawberry almond meal muffins

Ingredients: 

1 1/2 cups almond meal
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/3 cup coconut sugar
1/4 tsp. sea salt
2 eggs
3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup roasted strawberries*
1/3 cup chocolate chips, optional

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 375′. Prepare a mini muffin tin with paper liners, or coat the pan generously with coconut oil.

 

In a large bowl, combine the almond meal, cornmeal, baking soda, coconut sugar and salt. In another bowl, whisk the eggs, olive oil, honey, almond and vanilla extracts together. Whisk it up real well until fully combined and even in color. Add the wet to the dry ingredients and stir to mix. The batter will be fairly thick. Fold in the strawberries and chocolate chips. Fill the muffin liners to the top, they don’t poof too much.

 

Bake on the middle rack for 16-18 minutes until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick poked in the center comes out clean. Turn the muffins on their sides in the pan, or remove to a wire rack to cool.

 

*Roasted Strawberries: Oven to 350′. Toss 4 cups quartered strawberries with a pinch of salt and 2 tsp. melted coconut oil (or olive oil works too). This will do for ripe, juicy berries. If yours are dry or lacking flavor, add a splash of maple or honey to sweeten. Spread them in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Roast for 25-30 minutes or until juicy and reduced in size. Set aside to cool. This may yield more than you need for the recipe. Mix the extras in plain yogurt or in your morning oatmeal.

Events: The Campaign For Safe Cosmetics

retailers commitment to cosmetic safety

 

At SkinOwl, we are completely committed to skin health, which includes everything you put inside your body AND everything you apply to the outside of your body, A.K.A. your skin!  Sometimes we take amazing care of our skin through nutrition and natural skincare products, and then we go out and buy cosmetics without actually thinking about what they are made of!  It’s an easy oversight because makeup is a “fun” item.  BUT since most of us girls apply cosmetics to our skin on a daily basis, which then gets absorbed into our bodies via our skin, it is actually a very important item to consider.  We found a great chart which highlights some of the largest retailers and their commitment to cosmetics safety and we wanted to pass it along so that you can keep it in mind the next time you pick up a cosmetic item!
