Our Favorite SAFE sunscreen, Mascara & primer! (Drugstore & more)

On twitter I get lots & lots of questions of what my favorite products are that are SAFE & I thought it would be appropriate to start posting them here so you all can get the scoop.

Shannon asked: Do you have a favorite mascara? I need recommendations & Im due 4 some new ones! <3 <3 <3

Mascaras have been tricky to find, because I want a good solid waterproof one, that also gives the length & volume & curl! that too much to ask for? ;)
Anyway here are a few ive found that I like. One drugstore & one not. These aren't waterproof (boo).. BUT they do perform decently well!

The Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara has a great BIG wand & has easy application! Also is SUPER bright in color so you always know right where your mascara is in your makeup bag!

My other favorite option (non drugstore) would be:

The Tarte Gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara it has some great active ingredients that are suppose to help give your lashes some vavoom!.. I notice a little vavoom, but not sure if its as MUCH as they claim. Either way though, its great little mascara!

Jessica asked: Hi beautiful tiff :) I was just wondering if u had any recs on good all natural body sunscreens! attempting to go all natural!

Im so glad you asked! I have a dear friend (Hi AMBER!) that has been begging me to tell her what a good sunscreen is & I keep forgetting.. (bad!) Anyway- Yes! I just found a great one over the weekend that is also drugstore brand!! WAHOO! Anyway heres the beauty:

Aveeno Sun Natural Protection Sunblock SPF 30 Lotion, 3 oz It is waterproof. That was my biggest thing. A gentle WATERPROOF Sunscreen. I was out in the sun for about 5 hours, swimming my little heart out & had no burns. You do need to be sure you're re-applying as often as needed!

Vu asked: What's your favorite foundation primer?

Ive got two! One is also a drugstore brand & the other isn't.

Physicians Formula Correcting Primer 3-in-1 Corrector + Primer + Sun Protection. This little primer has so many great features! Its moisturizes, primes, corrects, has an spf & comes with easy application! This sounds like a sales pitch.. so im gonna give you one negative about the product... there aren't a lot of active ingredients... actives can be great for helping heal your skin throughout the day while wearing it.. so thats kinda a bummer.. BUT heck its safe & does the job extremely well!

My all time favorite foundation primer:

Korres Quercetin & Oak Age-reversing Primer This is an INCREDIBLE primer. Expensive.. but worth it. It applies smooth. Leaves your skin soft & has soo many great active ingredients that help your skin repair itself throughout the day!! I LOVE when you can have skin care anti-aging benefits all day.. instead of just at night.

THE END!! :)

FYI: I am always trying to find the next best item... so they do change every now & then. But these are the ones im currently loving!! Hope you enjoyed!!
