2015 green beauty in review

in the spirit of the approaching 2016 year, i thought it’d be fun for us to swap our favorites for 2015!

please share whatever you’ve enjoyedย from this last year so the rest of our community can learn more ๐Ÿ™‚


this year has been a really great one! i’ve experimented with and shared so many recipes, learned so much from you, and even began the journey to start my own all-natural beauty line. (btw – i’m so super excited to go out for sale!)

here’s a list of my “DIY vs BUY” favorites that are definitely going to follow me into the next year –

DIY favorites:




purchased favorites:



THANK YOU for your continued support. thank you for being a part of the green beauty, “crunchy” community. thank you for always supporting each other and sharing your stories and knowledge.

i couldn’t ask for better supporters.


HAPPY NEW YEAR, crunchies! all my love to you!ย

    1. hey karina! great question! it’s all still in the works โค i'm formulating and branding everything myself. it's tons of fun but tons of work! i don't have a launch date or specific products yet, but i will be sure to announce it here on AE.

  1. Hi Alex and best New Year wishes from France!
    I’ve recently moved to no-poo being inspired by your blog (not brave enough for water only though..).
    But now I saw a shampoo on your list of goodies, so I’m a bit confused ๐Ÿ™‚
    What made you move back to shampoo? If after all those years you start using shampoos again, I’m wondering if I should actually quit…

    1. happy new year, katya! i subscribed to a monthly all-natural beauty box & one month came with it. i read tons of reviews before trying it and decided “why not?” haha. i’ve been using it diluted about every week and a half to 2 weeks. i might go back to water-only when the bottle runs out. it was just something new to try and learn about ๐Ÿ™‚ great question! if you wanna go no-poo, i still support it!

      1. Oh, I see! Thanks for your answer!
        Yep, I’m in a full transition for the moment, but it seems to be working our well. Some of my friends are getting interested, so I send them all to your blog ๐Ÿ™‚
        All the best and thanks for the great ‘crunchiness’ you’re sharing.

  2. Happy New Year Alex! ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite things this year were my Zuzu Luze eyeliner in “Obsidian,” my 100% Pure Rose Hydrosol, mascara, and lipstick in “Narcissus.” Also, John Masters Organics shampoo and conditioner! ๐Ÿ™‚
