Shop Conscious Beauty
Are you shopping conscious?
You know...being aware of what you are REALLY buying, what it means for your body, and what it means for the earth? ....like the fine print stuff, the stuff that the cosmetics giants don't want you to know or care about?
Perhaps you are, or perhaps you want to be better at it because you read this...either way what I am about to share with you will take the headache out of shopping conscious for all of us. Shop Conscious Beauty.
Shop Conscious Beauty is a lovely website of thoughtfully curated clean and green beauty items. They do all the leg work of finding powerful results driven products that are conscious in more ways than one. The shops founders, Merlyn and Chelly, started Shop Conscious Beauty in 2013, after learning the importance of using non-toxic ingredients on their skin. Here's what they offer:
- They carry well known lines like One Love Organics and Scotch Naturals.
- Also have a knack for discovering the best lesser known brands like ISUN and Botanical Me to name a few.
- All of their products score less than a four on the EWG rating
- They are committed to sustainability
- 100% of what they offer is truly natural. You won't find harsh preservatives, toxic artificial fragrances, ethanolamines, or other nasty body harming ingredients.
- They have a wide selection of choices from baby to makeup, body, and men.

The Products You Won't Be Able To Pass On
The two products I am sharing with you today are in some ways opposites. One is a light oil, the other a thick balm, one for the eyes the other the face. However, both of them together have amplified my beauty routine into a daily ritual I look forward to. The first product is ISUN Sapphire Facial Oil and the other, One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm. I have been using both for over three weeks and I am-in-love. Together they have given my skin that extra moisture it needs to combat the dry winter weather plus a few extra bonuses I will spill below.
ISUN the Company
ISUN is a wild-crafted organic skin care line with top-notch ingredients and the healing loving energy on their founder, Bunnie Gulick, behind it. ISUN’s line is quite extensive and ranges from makeup to sun care, body care, and complete skincare. Each one of Bunnies ingredients is cold-processed and handled with the most delicate of care to ensure all the nutrients and energetic qualities remain intact. This delivers powerful nourishing ingredients directly to your skin to heal from within. Each step, from picking the wild flowers to bottling, has such love and positive vibration that it radiates to the products themselves. Leaving the consumer feeling renewed and happy.
After reading through ISUNs brochure I was immediately in love with the company, its products, and the values it adheres to. Then I tried the Sapphire Facial Oil and was absolutely smitten with ISUN. Finally a company that not only talks the talk but walks the walk. The oil lived up to all its claims and then some, I cannot wait to try other products from this truly clean radiant brand.
The Low Down on ISUN Sapphire Facial Oil
Each time I use this oil just the smell alone has me hooked. It is subtly sweet yet clean and balanced, the scent I cannot put my finger on….but I know I love it. The oil feels light in my palm with a golden amber color. It just begs to be applied to my face, almost as if my body knows what benefits it offers my skin. I then apply one drop to each cheek, one to the forehead, and one to the chin. The rest goes on my neck and chest. The oil quickly assimilates to my skin and gives it an inner glow. Not once have I felt it left a greasy residue or that strange oily look some facial oils do. This oil is stellar.
Sapphire Facial Oil is designed for normal to sensitive skin as it is packed with calming and balancing herbs and oils. It is high in antioxidants which, provide natural UV protection against the sun. I found that the minor redness I sometimes get around my nose was calmed and almost taken away completely. Also, after three weeks of use I am pleased to report that the few fine lines I have are fading away…something I never expected from this product but am stoked about.
One thing that did happen to my skin was a period of detoxing the first two weeks I used it. ISUN’s brochure warns that this “skin transition” may happen in rare instances, and that it is the skin purging itself of toxins because of the high antioxidant level in the oil. The detoxing manifested itself with a few blemishes. At first I was disappointed, but after reading the brochure I backed off to only once a day use. Now a week later I am happy to report my skin is well adjusted with no more detox blemishes in sight. It’s well moisturized, supple, and radiant…a total win all around.

One Love Organics, The Company
One Love Organics was founded in 2010 by a wife and husband duo, both former lawyers, Suzanne and Chase. Their products are as green and clean as you can get and contain simple ethically sourced ingredients. It seems that their company revolves around love…hence the name…as they declare on their website "that love is the greatest, most powerful force on earth”…something with which I couldn’t agree more. Simplicity is key to their brand and it reflects in their product line-up. Straight forward powerful ingredients packed into no more than 20 choice products. No charts and diagrams here to figure out which cream or wash is right for your skin. After all, simplicity and ease should be an integral part of a clean life.
The Low Down on One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm
So, I am not usually one for eye creams, balms, or treatments…probably because I have never found one that I felt made much difference. However, because each year I...somehow...manage to increase in age I decided to be more diligent about seeking an effective eye area treatment. Naturally, I was a bit skeptical about this One Love Balm, but man was I mistaken.
This is a waterless balm that’s smooth, thick, and ultra hydrating. Packed with antioxidants and key vitamins it’s like a multivitamin for the eyes. It can be used both day and night, although I find I like it best in the evening. The package is simple and the smell neutral, but it packs a punch to the eyes. I apply it by dabbing a small amount on my ring finger to the socket bones of my eyes. Then as I sleep the warmth of my skin allows for the balm to spread onto the rest of the eye area. In the morning I arise with a well moisturized eye area that seems plumped. After weeks of use I have noticed a decrease in the dark circles under my eyes and they are definitely less puffy in the mornings. One Love Organics Vitamin E Eye Balm has converted me into a daily eye cream user…something I never thought I would do. So if you're looking for a non-toxic effective anti-aging eye treatment give this one a try, I don’t think it will disappoint you.
Ingredients are as follows: Raw organic butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, organic helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, punica granatum (pomegranate) sterols, polyhydroxystearic acid, tocopherol (vitamin e), raw virgin rubus idaeus (red raspberry) seed oil, organic euphrasia officinalis (eyebright) extract, organic panax quinquefolius (american ginseng) extract, organic glycrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, organic lavandula angustifolia (bulgarian lavender) essential oil, organic foeniculum vulgare dulce (fennel) oil
So there you have it, an eye balm + a facial oil + a fab online retailer. All of which I 💜What more could we ask for...2 dozen roses? Well of course!
