Green Beauty: C2 California Clean

Two Words: Arizona Summer.

Need I say more? The heat is here and with that comes dry skin, sun damage, aging and much more.

 Not only is it starting to get hot, it’s Earth month in just 2 weeks and there is no better time than now to step up your skincare routine to show your skin and Mother Earth some love. And if you’re looking for a new line to try, I highly recommend C2 California Clean. Their philosophy is simple: “Age Smarter“.

What I love about C2CaliClean is that they focus on clean, green, organic and vegan skincare- and most important of all, cruelty free products. I bet you’re sold already, right? Me too.

This EWG Verified Green beauty line is female founded (#GirlBosses): Dr. Christine Falsetti, a NASA Scientist and Dr. Clarissa Shelter, a pharmacist. Combining their doctorates in pharmacology and chemistry, they created an effective 4-step skincare line in order to spread awareness regarding the toxicity of daily skincare products.

#FACTS 

The average woman exposes her skin to around 168 chemicals every day when she uses synthetic skincare products and makeup as part of her regular skin care routine. Many of those chemicals are widely recognized as carcinogens and neurotoxins.

THE GREEN BEAUTY GEMS

Advanced Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer

Let me start off by saying that I have super sensitive skin. Meaning, I’m always very hesitant to try new products in fear of causing a breakout or some strange reaction because trust me, it’s happened more times than I can count. However, knowing that this primer was natural and included all things green, it made it that much easier to try. And I’m so glad that I did because I seriously love it.

Is there anything worse than putting a primer on your face that makes it GREASY? Well, I can think of a few things but really…who wants a greasy face? Not this girl. I want a primer that delivers intense moisture and oh so smooth skin. And if it plumps up my skin and makes me look a bit younger, I wouldn’t mind that either. Lucky for you, here it is! The C2 Cali Clean primer is ah-mazing. Use it as a primer day and night and use it as a makeup primer as well–it’s that good. The dewy look is definitely in and with this primer, you can achieve it. Take care of your skin and take pride in the way it feels. Try it for yourself and you’ll see why this primer has quickly become one of my favorite new beauty gems.

From C2CaliClean:

Our supercharged hyaluronic acid hydrating primer instantly lifts, plumps and firms your skin for a dramatically smoother, tighter and hydrated appearance. An oil-free moisturizer that will increase moisture retention in the skin and reduce trans-epidermal moisture loss.

We are a skin care company that cares about your health and vitality. Our skin care line performs at the highest level, without the need for dangerous, toxic ingredients found in other brands.

Key Ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid

Ultra Replenishing Oil Squalane + Vit E

First off, I bet you’re wondering…’What is Squalane Oil?’ Well, it’s an oil that occurs naturally in the body; also found in olive oil that’s believed to be a natural moisturizer. Second question you probably have is, ‘If our bodies produce it naturally, why do we need it?’ Great question! Unfortunately, like our body, the production of this chemical slows down dramatically after the age of 30…meaning dry skin. HOW RUDE right? This is where beauty products kick in, to help prevent the dreadful aging process.

If you live in AZ then you need this like, NOW. It’s so important to take care of your skin and if you started years ago before age 30, congrats to you– you’re way ahead of the game. Next step, STAY OUT OF THE SUN. That’s a whole other topic we will save for another time. 🙂

This oil can be used as a moisturizer and the application experience is super luxe. It changes the way your skin feels and delivers the ultimate moisture. We all want soft, dewy and glowing skin right? Well this is the way to get it. I’ve tried a lot of oils and so far, this is my favorite. I love the way it melts into my skin and the way it makes my skin look. This is the way all oils should feel and the fact that it’s natural, makes it THAT much better.

From C2CaliClean: 

This must have 100% pure and clean, powerful plant-derived facial squalane plus Vitamin Eoil:

  • Improves skin elasticity and moisture retention
  • Assists in new cell regeneration
  • Diminishes age spots
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Protects from UV radiation and environmental pollutants

Uniquely crafted to melt instantly into your skin and rejuvenate from deep within the surface. The smooth, deep penetration assists in the acceleration of new cell growth. Our replenishing oil leaves your skin feeling hydrated, supple and healthy.

With that being said, if you want to take part in green beauty, if you see words like ‘Triclosan, Retinyl Palmitate or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate’ listed in the ingredients section, put the product DOWN and leave it behind. #BYEBYE

    Great post love. As you know my skin is crazy sensitive. I tend to use the same products just because I never know what will happen. These sound so great!

    I have been searching high and low for a new primer. I feel like I have tried everything and haven’t liked any. Will totally give this one a try!

    How well does this primer do under foundation? Is it best used as a stand alone moisturizer? I’m looking for a skin smoothing primer to wear under my daily foundation. Thanks!

      Hi Brook! This primer is definitely great and will work well as a primer for foundation. It smooths and plumps your skin so I think you will really like it. After I apply all my makeup, I use a setting spray too. Let me know if you have any other questions! xo
