New products we love don’t come easy.  We are picky, picky, picky about what we put on our temple and what we recommend to you.  And us GirlieGirls know there are a totally different realm of products we like for summer that we may not like for winter.  That said, this isn’t an easy list to make, so be excited about our new favorites.

Here are some new products lining our bathroom shelves that we have strangely romantic feelings towards;

LUXE COAT NAIL POLISH

LuxeCoat formulas are based on sustainable vegan ingredients free of harmful carcinogens and chemicals often found in nail products.  The chip-resistant and high shine nail polish is formulated to keep nails growing strong and healthy.  These nail polish contains no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP (dibutyl phthalate), Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor. All LuxeCoat products are cruelty free. The colors are on trend sexy and the polish actually lasts! The mint color is currently on both my and my son’s nails.

EMI-JAY HAIR ACCESSORIES

Emi-Jay was created by teenage entrepreneurs Emily and Julianne.  They are hair ties that look like cute bracelets when on the wrist, so you don’t look completely disheveled when you want to keep your pseudo scrunchie near by. They somehow upgrade messy buns and braids into actual looks.  And yes, they are for little girls as well as adults. Emi-Jays are hand-dyed and handmade in the U.S.A. with imported material.  Emi-Jay gives back to the community by donating 20% of their profits to charity. There are so many colors and styles to choose from that it almost makes us crazy.  And by crazy we mean, giggly and high on life.

BODY SHOP LIPGLOSS BY LEONA LEWIS

We haven’t been to The Body Shop since High School, but when Leona Lewis launched this vegan gloss with the classic earth hugging line, we got back into the classic line.  This gloss is perfect for summer, not too sticky, and smells like junior prom with a sweet minty flavor.

ELLOVI BODY BUTTER

Ellovi was born to disrupt a beauty industry ruled by products laden with artificial ingredients and cheap fillers. The adorable vegan couple behind the brand is passionate about crafting pure and nutritional skincare products from plants. The line starts with this super rich body butter which delivers on the hydration in a maaaajor way.

ULTIMATE FLORA DAILY PROBIOTIC

If you are boozing this summer, your gut needs some healthy probiotics.  And if you can’t stand kombucha, craut, or kim-chee, you’ll have to get it in pill form.  We love these pills because it isn’t a one for all probiotic – they offer special configurations for women, men, and kiddles.. all vegan.  This will help you look beautiful from the inside out, and are available in mainstream drug stores, so if you are off road in Nantucket you are in luck!

The simple formulation is biodegradable, environmentally friendly and good for cleaning just about anything!    Good for your home and good for your heart, 10% of the proceeds of the Kiss My Face Peace Soap go to Seeds of Peace, an organization aimed at empowering youth from areas of conflict from all over the world, giving them the necessary leadership and communication skills to ensure a future filled with peace. All totally biodegradable, vegan, and gluten/ paraben free.

XLEAR SINUS CARE

Who wants a bright red nose with that sexy summer dress? Not us!! Allergies driving you batty, but want to avoid the druggy haze of anti-histamines? The Xlear Nasal Spray is all natural and contains xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract. This Xylitol and saline solution is hyper-osmotic, which draws moisture and keeps the nasal passages and sinuses more moist and clean than saline alone.  The Xlear Nasal Spray line consists of several all-natural products. None of them contain chemical antihistamines or decongestants, which can leave your airways and sinuses dry. Dry airways are easily irritated and extremely vulnerable to attack from external contaminants.  Try this spray, you’ll be a believer.

 EO DEODORANT

The first ever Certified Organic Deodorant Spray! And it works! And it smells so good I sometimes use it as perfume (for reals!) This effective deodorant spray freshens as it neutralizes and eliminates the sources of unpleasant body odor. Made with pure essential oils and organic alcohol, you can be sure your deodorant isn’t giving you cancer at the cost of smelling.
