It's no secret that I'm obsessed with True Botanicals. I first learned about the brand when I took a trip up to Napa with them to get to know one of their co-founders Hillary. This beauty brand is really becoming the leader in the nontoxic + efficacy category, and for very good reason. These products are clean yet still very potent, truly delivering what is promised. I have been using them religiously for over a year now and I don't think I've ever been happier with my skin. Whenever people ask why I have good skin, it's because I've been using True Botanicals. When they reached out to me to try out their newest launch -- BODY products -- I couldn't have been more excited to try them and be a part of the new campaign!
A glowing complexion shouldn't just be given to our face -- attention to the whole body is key to really feeling and looking like a goddess. True Botanicals' Resurfacing Body Mask + Body Oil duo will give you the overall body glow that we all want. The first step is to apply the Body Mask; I usually do this about 15 minutes before the shower. I put on my robe, chill, and let the mask sit to do its magic. It kinda of tingles and I love it. Then I take my shower, and immediately after the shower when my skin is damp I finish off with a lathering of the Body Oil. The Body Oil is so silky and smells INCREDIBLE. My skin feels the softest and most hydrating when use this duo. It's magical. Can't wait for you all to try it yourselves.

A day in the life with my Hobes.
As a Hobes Girl, I get to wear an array of some of the coziest yet chic shoes around. Made by the Aussie beauty Georgie, Hobes have a modern sensibility that really go well with every outfit. The Gold pairs in this shoot are super versatile. My other favorite colors are the blush, and white. My all time favorite Hobes might be the Wooly's though -- literally whenever I wear them people stop me and ask "what are those cozy shoes?!". Well, they are truly the comfiest shoes I've ever worn; they're fuzzy inside but still maintain a cute sensibility on the outside. I'm OBSESSED.

THE #1 THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR SKIN is to use SUNSCREEN.
With every new year comes a lovely opportunity to break old habits and replace them with new ones that ultimately lead us to a higher sense of self. Be it things we want to preserve, change, or progress -- the new year is a great way to get in check with yourself and get in check with the things you want to accomplish. Last year, one of my main goals "physical goals" as I call it (as apposed to say, an internal goal like, positivity) was to use SPF on the daily, and gladly it's become a non-negotiable part of my routine. We are big on sunscreen in the BLT household. Brian and I use SPF every single day. It really is the single best thing you can do for your skin (90% of the signs of aging come from the sun - seriously!) and it can also be one of the easiest. It literally takes 2 seconds, and will save you later on in life from dreaded wrinkles.
That's where one of my most favorite SPF's comes in. Supergoop's new Unseen, daily, invisible SPF 40 protection. This sunscreen is a broad spectrum protectant that is oil-free, scent-free, invisible on all skin tones (it’s a clear formula, which goes on great under makeup or even on a men's facial hair -- shout out to BCL), skin perfecting, Blue Light Blocking, and a great makeup-gripping primer. It seriously checks all the boxes! And because it’s too major to not repeat -- it protects against the blue light from our electronic devices!! This is something that we all need to be super conscious of, and thanks to Supergoop there is a solution to all of the negative side effects of screen time. Now for the super healing ingredients in the sunscreen : Red Algae offers protection against visible light, including blue light, Meadowfoam Seed Oil increases hydration levels, Diatomaceous Earth absorbs perspiration and excess oils, and extract of Frankincense acts as anti-inflammatory and helps make the skin less sensitive to UV radiation
What I love most about Supergoop is that they use only the cleanest ingredients — and of course the most efficacious too. They are super ingredient conscious and avoid parabens, synthetic fragrance, oxybenzones. Try out their new Unseen sunscreen and let me know your thoughts! It's super easy to apply, and super quick to dry. It's great for men and women, BCL loves it too :)
