CertClean’s Clean Beauty Award Winners & My Personal Favorites GIVEAWAY!

I want to help empower YOU to become eco- friendly and ingredient conscious beauty lovers! How am I going to do that? By introducing you to some amazing brands and resources out there that will make this transition easy and enjoyable. That is why I am hosting a giveaway with the amazing CertClean & PurPicks where you can win safe and super effective green beauty products!  Keep reading below to discover some amazing non-toxic skincare to try that didn’t make the cut in the awards.


I personally judged the categories of Face Care (which were hydration focused) and Eye Liner. I was in major need of trying new products in both areas so I definitely lucked out. Although all of the winners are worthy in my eyes of holding the tile, I have a few more products that I was SUPER IMPRESSED with and I feel you guys NEED to know about and now you will have a chance to try some of them yourselves!


My personal favorites from the group I trialed go as follows:


From Molly With Love: Sea Kelp Bioferment Essence

The moment I picked up this product I was instantly intrigued with it. The Sea Kelp Bioferment Essence is a mix of a mist and a hydrating liquid serum in one. It has an interesting deep brown ocean like color, which resembles it’s main ingredient ‘sea kelp’!

The From Molly With Love Sea Kelp Bioferment Essence takes the effectiveness of Korean beauty and the luxury of high-end brands like La Mer for instance, but applies it’s own green beauty principals within each and every product.

The ingredients include the nutritive active Sea Kelp Bioferment, it is an effective and powerful ingredient that penetrates the skin with a high concentration of vitamins and minerals without harmful additives.


Retails for 47.99$

ACNE DR. 1st Control Tonic:

The Acni Dr. 1st Control Tonic is part of a 4 step skin care regimen, it falls 3rd on the line. This product also falls under the new trend of ‘essence’ Korean products. They seem to be the core of their skincare routine providing light yet hydrating and penetrating products.

This particular tonic has a super sleek, light and gel like texture. With the change of seasons here in Vegas (hot to hotter) my skin began to produce excess oil causing breakouts. I have dry to combination skin which is also sensitive so I weary about trying this out. But I was SO IMPRESSED by how it made my skin feel! It dried out the excess oil my face was producing but helped to balance and soothe the dry/irritated patches around my cheeks. *Warning* if you have super dry skin I would try one of their other products or introduce it to your regimen slowly.

I admire iSoi (I’m so intelligent) their philosophy as well, below is an image of what ingredients they provide as opposed to toxic filled ‘luxury’ options out on the market.

I was a bit skeptical before trying out these exfoliating peel pads. As I mentioned before my skin is sensitive and can react to harsh products that may work for others. However I was so pleasantly surprised by how soothing they were on my skin! It cleared out most of my texture and has commenced the process of removing my infamous dark spots on my cheek area.

The peels contain a blend of AHAs (glycolic and lactic acids) plus BHA (salicylic acid) which penetrate any pesty pimples or blackheads surfacing. The ingredients in these pads clear blemishes, hyperpigmentation, scarring, and fine lines and wrinkles! They are great for all skin issues, but you may want to start with the original strength if you are not sure of your skin’s sensitivity.

    SEA KELP BIOFERMENT ESSENCE sounds safe, healthy and powerful. If sea kelp is an amazing food then it must also make an amazing ingredient in skin care products. Thank you for informing us of this product.

    • June 22, 2019 / 12:02 am

      That was my logic in trying it! Thank you so much for entering and for taking the time to comment 🙂

    These products look fun to try- especially the essence. The best skin care tip I’ve gotten from someone that had fantastic skin was that everyone regardless of skin type, should be treating their skin as sensitive. That way you don’t over scrub or over treat, creating more problems than you are solving. That always stuck with me.

    • June 22, 2019 / 12:02 am

      OMG I love that tip! Def a go to for trying anything on the body, food, cosmetic, etc. Thanks for sharing and thank you so much for entering!
