Best Baking Soda Free Deodorants That Work | I tested 7 Baking Soda Free Deos

Making the switch to clean/natural deodorants can be a massive learning curve with a transition phase for many as the body adjusts to not using aluminum.

Ilia Fullest Volumizing Mascara vs Beautycounter Think Big Mascara comparison

Makeup is certainly making a comeback after the massive shift from skincare-ONLY routines in 2020. With that, I feel like everyone is launching new mascaras lately… especially in the clean beauty realm. Honestly, rightfully so because clean mascaras are pretty hard to get right.
