I use the 3 Berry Serum from Made From Earth - Its moisturizes my 60+ skin and has repaired some of the sun damage I got from not using sun screen for most of my life. It doesn't leave my face greasy or tacky. I can't say enough good about it.....

I didn't find the Pacifica to provide any coverage and was too dark for me. The Alba one matches my very fair skin well, but is a little shiny looking and has a weird, funky scent that I really hate. But, it is a good product.

I am a red head and I have incredibly pale skin. I have never found a sunless tanner that doesn't turn me orange and leave me looking like a zebra! I am excited to try this but I have a few questions. If you wanted to keep the glow going should you apply every night (or will that build up too much color) or every 2-3 days? I am going on a vacation in the next few months and I would like to have a bit of color but my concern is, will I end up sweating it off in the hot weather and end up with streak marks in areas.

Metallics are having a major moment right now in both the fashion and beauty worlds. Read More

Lovely! Metallics are so great because they're versatile for casual or formal - and every season. The gold leaf detail would be beautiful on a maroon mani. Warm Regards, Alexandra

Love this. I'd enjoy seeing a post about the color oxblood (always makes me dream of fall) or of how to wear knee-high socks - I have a ton of them but for some reason feel a little uninspired about how to work them into my everyday wardrobe right now xoxo Sara

Sometimes ill take a quarter size (depending on length of hair) of my curly conditioner &scrunch into outer (half on scalp) I'm going to try the t shirt not towel idea it makes sense towel wrapped hair sometimes causes my hair to dry too much.

I'll bet a drop or two of lavender oil and peppermint oil would feel fantastic in this.

The shift is subtle, until we’re suddenly acutely aware: Crumpled leaves litter the ground, school buses begin their early morning rumble, and apples, squash, and dark leafy greens start their farmer’s market takeover.Read More

Can you please list the make up from the first picture? I loooove the colours of the eyeshadow, would be amazing to know there they are from! :)

The waterbottle appears to be a Klean Kanteen for anyone still looking for it.

It’s true: I eat fossils every day.

I know you’re thinking, “Brigette. Girl. What are you talking about.” Allow me to introduce you to a little gold mine known as diatomaceous earth.Read More

I have been taking DE for about 3 weeks now, I am almost 50. I have had serious constipation problems due to the hydrocodone I take daily since I have had 2 back fusions. I even ended up in the ER because my constipation was so bad, I was throwing up. I take 1 heaping tablespoon every morning with water or coffee (about 8 ounces of liquid) I am having bowel movements every morning, and my energy has increased like crazy. I did have some cramping one evening, but it wasn't unbearable. Just enough to annoy me. I take one dose of Miralax in the evening too and it is working like a charm. My hair is growing very fast, but my nails are still nasty. Probably because I had my nails done for years, so my nails are very weak now. I definately recommend this product.

it seems very obvious to iron with a flat iron but I'd never thought about it, it's brilliant!

Coconut oil is my #1 go to; It's my body moisturizer, my facial moisturizer, my makeup remover (seriously! it works wonders!).... I don't even wear any foundation or powder makeup anymore, and I get compliments on my skin all the time. It's nature's miracle! <3 dani

Post image for 3 Ingredient Natural Hair Detangler

I have very long hair, and I suffer from tangled locks a lot more than not. But no matter what length your hair is, chances are you often encounter annoying tangles. Taking a brush to them sometimes won’t even do the trick, so that’s when you bring in a reinforcement– hair detangler.Read More

And make sure its sustainable Palm oil! For more info check out the Oranguran Project. All good being natural.. But look where you are getting your ingredients. :) thanks
Syl -Feb 22, 2015, 11:15AM
Don't normally post, but this made me a little angry. Tried it, spent $ on good ingredients, didn't work at all! Maybe too much water in your recipe? I may try it straight, without water; perhaps my hair is just very dry :(. Truly felt just as dry and tangly after applying, If not more!

Post image for Whipped Coconut Oil For Hair And Skin

We talk a lot about oils here on the Free People blog, and for good reason – they’re amazing for both your external and internal health. Personally, I’m a fan of coconut oil: I cook with it, slather it on my skin, rub it into the ends of my hair, and even add it to my coffee and tea.Read More

Leah -Jul 01, 2015, 4:45PM
Yes! You're probably using wayy too much coconut oil in your hair. I use about a pin head amount. A tiny tiny bit and scrunch it through my wet hair and its amazing!
em -Sep 19, 2014, 12:43AM
I don't know one person who actually likes coconut oil in their hair…. it leaves grease spots every time i've tried but if anyone knows how to prevent this i would loooove to know!!!
