JOUER: AFFORDABLE CLEAN BEAUTY ESSENTIALS

LA blogger, RELish By Arielle tries Blush & Bloom Cheek + Lip Duo by Jouer

When it comes to makeup, I’m always on the hunt for clean beauty products that enhance my skin. As a full-time working mama, I don’t have time to do a full face of makeup before all of the zoom calls. If I do have 5-10 minutes to spare in the morning (IF!), I love adding minimal makeup: mascara, a dab of highlighter to my eyelids and cheekbones and some lip gloss. Naturally, I’m obsessing over a new product by Jouer that does ALMOST all of these things. Sharing this particular product with you today as well as a few others by Jouer which my skin has fallen in love with. If you’re looking to achieve an affordable, healthy, dewy glow, this post is for you.

YOUR HEALTHIEST HAIR EVER IN 2021

Since I recently had two babies in just over two years, my hair has gone through A LOT of changes. While I have naturally big, curly hair, postpartum hair loss for me was and continues to be a VERY real thing. Sharing a few products I’ve been using this year (clickable above) to help my hair grow back healthier, thicker and stronger than ever. This post is not sponsored. I happen to have found products that are truly working for me so I wanted to share.

CLEAN BEAUTY BRANDS I’M LOVING

As we rang in 2021, I went full Marie Kondo in our house.  I purged everything that didn’t bring me joy, organized like a crazy lady and even cleared out our overflowing attic. It felt SO liberating!  Throughout the process, I noticed just HOW many beauty products I’ve been stashing away for years for no apparent reason. Prior to this purge, I’d throw these products in a big bag beneath my sink. I’d tell myself that surely I’d need them SOMEDAY. This time around, though, my cleaning style had a method to the madness: if I hadn’t touched a product for a year or more, it was either donated or thrown away–end of story. Hello empty, refreshing space!  Goodbye clutter!

I usually fill this space with light, family-driven style content. However,  the events we’ve all witnessed over the past week with the murder of George Floyd have moved me to tears.  Amidst a sea of thoughtful, moving, gut-wrenching posts which have flooded social media, I’ve tried drafting a number of blog posts that simply couldn’t do all that is happening right now justice. I’ve come to realize it’s time for me to simply listen and continue to educate myself and my children.
