February Eco Beauty + Lifestyle Favorites

Please forgive my congestion (I’m better now!) but here are all the things I was enjoying during February (an unpopular month with many but it’s one of my favorites for some reason). Also a healthy dose of self-reflection on eco-beauty marketing and consumerism, with more to come, je te promets! xoxo, mercedes.

Disclaimer and a word on integrity: All products I talk about here on L’amour et la Musique are purchased with my own money, unless I explicitly mention that it was given to me either as a “PR sample” or gifted to me by friends/subscribers/et cetera. I will ALWAYS be fully transparent about any products given to me for review, that I did not seek out or purchase of my own accord. It is one of the biggest issues I have with YouTube – that many bloggers and YouTubers have just become a means to market products. That’s not why I do this. There is a huge difference between giving a rave to a product you researched and hemmed and hawed about spending your own money on, versus something given to you to test out. So, long-winded way of saying: all opinions expressed are entirely my own, and I strongly value honesty and integrity in real life and here on YouTube.
