California Naturel






I might be in the Midwest, where Fall has...well, basically already started. But that doesn't mean that I'm not an all-year-round summer girl at heart. So when I cam across the gorgeous brand California Naturel I jumped at the chance to try a line where I could achieve that enviable California girl glow. With skincare products for every skin type, and natural, beautiful formulas to boot, there's something in this line for everyone.

The number one rule for great skin? Wear SPF! I've given up on chemical sunscreens myself, but have begun religiously wearing mineral sunscreen, which essentially bounces the rays of the sun off of your skin. California Naturel offers two different products with sun protection - their incredible Sunscreen with SPF 30* as well as their Lip Balm with SPF 8*. Each option provides their SPF from Zinc Oxide, protecting your skin from both UVA and UVB rays. I have been loving the sunscreen, which is filled with other goodies such as Shea Butter, Pomegranate Extract and Marigold Flower Extract which work to moisturize your skin while protecting it from harmful sun rays and environmental damage.

Speaking of hydration, the brand also offers two different types of facial moisturizers, their Nourishing Cream* and Balancing Complex*. The Nourishing Cream is for dry and normal skin types, with ingredients such as Alfalfa Extract and Olive Leaf Extract to reduce inflammation, fight fine lines and leave your skin both hydrated and radiant. The Balancing Complex is more suitable for combination and oily skin types, with Argan, Borage and Jojoba oils that purify your skin while regulating sebum production. This one provides a matte finish as opposed to the dewy finish of the Nourishing Cream, but both are excellent options to wear underneath makeup, or in conjunction with the brand's sunscreen. I've been wearing the Balancing Complex during the day and the Nourishing Cream at night and have been loving the results - my skin is softer, more hydrated and brighter after wearing these, which is exactly what I want from my skincare!

Finally there's the brand's Gentle Cleansing Gel* which is perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin. This all natural formula is made with Aloe Vera and Soapberry, which offer moisturizing benefits while removing all makeup and impurities on your skin. I love how easily this gel breaks down my makeup, leaving my skin perfectly clean without every stripping it of natural oils (a problem I've had in the past with many gel-based cleansers). Using this cleanser perfectly preps my skin for the brand's moisturizers, which pair perfectly together.

Have any of you tried this beautiful brand? What's your favorite product? Let me know in the comments below!
