Dream Shelf is a sneak peek at what clean beauty advocate and Pretty Well Beauty founder Jazmin Alvarez is currently obsessed with. It will include products from her personal holy grail collection, the chicest green packaging out there, and some ingestible beauty too, because quite frankly darling, beauty is an inside job.
I’m fully dedicated to wearing sun protection year-round — but one of the things I’ve struggled with is that a lot of the formulas leave my skin looking greasy over time because I have oily skin. So, when I was first introduced to Farizad’s Veil Sun Reflector — which is a non-nano-zinc-oxide powder that I can mix into my moisturizer or serum — I was so excited!
I love anything DIY, to be honest, so this gives me that satisfaction while also leaving my skin protected. And the added bonus is that is lightly mattifies my skin, too, which is so necessary for me right now during the humid summers in NYC. A little goes a long way and there will be a tiny bit of trial and error but once you figure out the right ratio, you’ll love it!
Ingredients: Non-nano uncoated zinc oxide 94%; Aloe barbadensis leaf powder, Rosa centifolia (rose) absolute (Morocco; organic whenever available), pink Michelia champaca L. absolute (India), organic Pelargonium graveolens (geranium bourbon) oil (Madagascar), Pelargonium roseum (rose geranium) oil, Boswellia sacra (frankincense) oil.
