Wednesday Wishlist

I’ve got a Cognition exam tomorrow, but there’s no time like 10 minutes before midnight for a Wednesday Wishlist right? Especially since my last one was from July.

Aurelia Probiotic Skincare Miracle Cleanser 120 ml for $53 from Net-a-Porter
I have heard all the good things about this cleanser from mainstream beauty mavens to my favorite green beauties. Into the Gloss, Caroline Hirons, Genuine Glow, and Seed to Serum all raved of how smooth and hydrated this cleanser leaves them, not to mention the lush creamy consistency, the wonderful smell, and beautifully soft muslin. Besides the fact everyone seems to love this, what also makes this line special is the use of probiotics. “I can’t understand how probiotics are supposed to benefit your skin, as they are designed to be processed in your digestive system” went some sassy comment on Caroline Hirons’ post. Turns out probiotics in skincare counter the effects of sun exposure and inflammation. Booyah. I’m a bit rusty on my hot cloth and balm cleansing, and this sounds like a great all/winter moisturizing, makeup-removing cleanser.

MUN No. 1 Aknari Nighttime Dream Youth Serum 15 ml for $95 from Mun Skin
This is another well-loved gem in the green beauty and mainstream world. Models, spa owners, makeup artists, The Green Product Junkie, and Epic Beauty Guide praise the serum for its hydrating effects, simplicity, efficacy against dark circles and blemishes, and more. I love argan, I love the smell of rose oil, and I am itching to try prickly pear seed oil. Can’t have enough moisture or blemish-fighting powers going into these colder and drier months.

Kahina Giving Beauty Eye Serum 15 ml for $78 from Kahina Giving Beauty
This brand has been on my radar for yonks, and I nearly went for their travel set when I was transitioning away from DIY skincare, but instead went with Dr. Alkaitis for blemishy reasons. With all the love that No More Dirty Looks and Truth in Aging gives this brand, I know I will press that checkout button soon–eventually. The eye serum flew back on my radar recently with a blog post or an Instagram picture that I can’t find or immediately remember! It is buried in my BlogLovin’ or instagram feed, but clementinefields’ will definitely do. Reduce puffiness and dark circles with a product that gives back? Exactly what I’m looking for, what with staying up until 2am and even 3am seeming to become a trend…

H. Gillerman Organics Remedy Pack $160 from H. Gillerman
Hope from H. Gillerman was such a tease about this one–this all-in-one pack popped up on various Twitters and instagrams of celebrities (did you know she’s buddies with Lea Michele and Miley Cyrus? Yep) and green beauty queens in its cute little Baggu bag before its official release. The pack includes her four famed remedies: sinus, stress, sleep, and tension in super concentrated essential oil form.  And it’s limited edition! I am coveting my little samples of sleep and sinus that came with my jaw-clenching tension remedy rollerball, and from how soothing these blends smell, I can only imagine how great the other ones are…

So tell me, have you tried any of these products? What have you been wishing for lately?

    Love your picks! I've also heard a lot about Aurelia and MUN products and would love to try those too. How do you like the H.Gillerman Jaw Clenching Remedy? I'm interested to know if it helped! All her other products are great as well.

    Haven't tried any of those products, but wouldn't mind testing out the Aurelia Probiotic Cleanser!
    Lately my bareMinerals Matte Foundation ran out, so on my list is a new brand, but there's so many out there to choose from! Right now it stands between Inika, Amila Pure and W3ll People.
    Also, now when winter is coming up I'd love to change to a more milky cleanser, maybe the one from Pai.

    PS I've nominated you for a Liebster Award on my blog, would love it if you answered some of my questions 🙂

    Hi Isabel! Alima Pure was one of my first switch overs to green beauty and I used it well for a year–it is good stuff! I've been using a sample of W3ll People's foundation and I quite like it as well.

    A milky, gentle cleanser is definitely a must for winter–Pai was a little too rich for me, but I'm also loving Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics' oil cleanser and YÜLI Skincare's Halcyon cleanser–both very gentle yet thoroughly cleansing.

    Thank you for the nomination!! I am honored!! Will answer the questions as soon as I can 🙂
