Ah, summer, you sweet, sweet thing. To say it's been a chill summer would be somewhat of a stretch. I've been putting in several hours at the office and all of my vacation time has been saved up for the last quarter of the year. Luckily for me, I was able to skip town for a few days to join derma e for their #zeninthebu Malibu escape. If you know me, then you know I love the sun - combine that with hours of yoga, beach time, poolside tanning, swimming, delicious (and healthy!) eats, massages and flower crowns, and you've got yourself a very, very happy girl.
For those who are unfamiliar, derma e is a natural beauty brand that's 100% vegan and cruelty-free. Each and every derma e product is paraben-free, phthalate-free, GMO-free, gluten-free, sodium lauryl sulfate-free, petrolatum-free, mineral oil-free and dye-free. In other words, it's not just good for the skin, it's great for the earth. I was introduced to the brand last holiday season when they sent me their Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask, which has become a staple in my exfoliating routine.
