I was lucky enough to be introduced to some incredible beauty products, made by a good friend of mine from college. Sarah and I go way back, having spent a wild summer in Queretaro, Mexico, having the time of our lives. I always knew this girl would do something amazing, and I have not been disappointed. Now that she is all growns up, Sarah lives in Eugene, Oregon with her fabulous hubby, Chad and daughter, Marley. Having Marley inspired Sarah to start Marley's Monsters, a great brand of eco-friendly supplies for babies, moms and pretty much anyone else!
She has also paired with her friend Emily who has another fabulous Oregon company,Urban Oreganics. Urban Oreganics handcrafts the highest quality bath & beauty products from natural, sustainable, organic, and vegan ingredients in Portland, OR. Our handmade creations are lovingly fashioned in small batches and tested on friends and family, never on animals.
After spending some time using several of their products, I am thrilled to add them to the list of those items that I am #dbsobsessed with! Major beauty finds below...

First up, these amazing REUSABLE FLANNEL FACIAL ROUNDS. Not only are they adorable, but it is so nice not to have to use those terrible cotton rounds that soak up all of your toner when you try to put it on. I keep these in a small cup next to my sink and I love them for toner, makeup removal, wiping off face masks and more.
Also amazing, are the UNPAPER TOWELS, which are excellent for drying your face after washing, or for taking off a face mask. I am not a fan of how thick washcloths can be, so this was definitely a step in the right direction for me. I hate using my hand towel for wiping my face, because who wants to get makeup on your hands after you wash them... #genius!
Pretty much all things Urban Oreganics are right up my alley. What a find! Here were some of my favorites...
BEET ROOT TINTED LIP AND CHEEK COLOR: As a blonde, it is not always easy to find natural colors like this that actually work for me. If something is too deeply red, it is difficult to use on an everyday basis. Not a problem with this product! I am totally #dbsobsessed. The color is subtle but noticeable, a great color for pretty much any season. It smells great and comes in a big fat tube that I love, love, love.
MAKEUP REMOVER: Another killer find. This is the perfect combination of non-greasy and effective. So often, I find makeup remover that actually works is far too greasy, and takes a MAJOR scrubbing to get off my skin. This light formula does the job in a clean way. I'm hooked, especially when I use with the reusable facial rounds!
Ok, I saved the best for last...
If you know me, you know I am a MAJOR user and abuser of dry shampoo. Because my hair is so fine, I use it every day to give body and to avoid a limp and dirty look that happens all too soon for these locks. I am elated to share this find with you.
URBAN OREGANICS DRY SHAMPOO: As you can see, this is a powder that you apply with a makeup brush. I found the MAC 103 brush to be a great fit for me. While this is not the dry shampoo you want to use to get giant volume for a night out, this IS what you want to use for every day, giving yourself a clean look. I cannot say enough about how much I love this lightweight product that stays off the scalp and makes my hair look amazing. I hate what happens to my scalp from the buildup that so many aerosol dry shampoo options leave you with. The fact that this is actually 100% dry, makes a giant difference.
Other amazing features:
- It comes in light and dark
- The dark is chocolate scented, and the light comes in unscented, grapefruit and lavender.
-It's easy to pack, and ok for a carry on, unlike spray dry shampoo
