What happened here?!?! We are in November talking about Black Friday?!?! Or as I like to say “Green Friday”. I think it was Dr. Sarah Villafranco, founder of Osmia, who used that term a few “Fridays’ ago. Anywho, it has been a crazy 8 months!! I don’t think anyone on this planet would disagree with that. If shopping online hadn’t become a part of your normal life it definitely did with this pandemic. And that won’t likely change anytime soon. So many brands recognize that and they began ramping up their inventory for a while now so that they would be ready for this time. I’ve said in the past and I’ll say it again, shop consciously. Shop for what you need. Don’t feel pressured to shop because “oh but it’s on sale.” It will still be there later on. You are going to see so many sales and it can be overwhelming. I don’t want to add to anyone’s angst. I will be focusing on Small Businesses. They can use all of our support. One thing they all have in common, they are all woman owned business. These ladies are awesome!! I’m going to list my favorite shops and their sales here and then that’s it. When you shop through my link I earn a tiny commission. Doesn’t cost you anything. But it helps me build my blog. Thank you for reading and I wish you all a healthy and safe week!
Angie Watts Clean Beauty: Angie Watts is new to me. I have tried 2 of her products and I truly love them. You know I don’t say that lightly. I use the Skin Awakening Cleanser & Toner first thing in the morning. It gives my skin a refresher. I also have been using the Sheba Hydrating Hair and Body Oil. I use it as a body oil right out of the shower. It’s so moisturizing. This week is extra special for Angie because her company is turning 5 years old. So amazing!!

Brooklyn Made Natural: This brand is a women owned business. I found them a few years ago on Etsy and rediscovered them a few months ago. They have added so many new items since I lost touch. My current favorites are the Hand Soap and Lip Balm. Their sale is for one day only 11/27/20. 50% off doorbusters, 20-50% off the rest of their website and then Free Gifts with Purchase.
Erin’s Faces: The beautiful red-headed maven behind the brand is just as lovely in person as she is on IG. I have a feeling everyone claims she’s their best friend. Her products are amazing. Currently using (been using since it launched) Radiant Firming Concealer in Magnolia ($29). I LOVE this concealer and I’ve tried quite a few in green beauty. It blends great and gives you nice bright eyes even if you didn’t sleep a wink the night before. I had bought the Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner ($20.50) quite some time ago. If i’m being 100% with you I didn’t love it. I forgot about it til a couple of months ago, tried it again and now its the one I reach for every time i put on makeup. Go figure. I love it and need it in black. Sometimes first impressions aren’t a good judge. Sounds like how I my best friend and I met over 20 years ago. 🙂 I’ll share one more because I can go on and on. I’ve been using the Firming Eye Gel ($29) for a few months now. I keep it in my little mini makeup fridge (cue making fun of me for being bougie) and it is so refreshing in the morning. With ingredients like cucumber seed oil and aloe vera it’s an eye-lift in a bottle. So let’s get down to the sale! Erin’s Faces will be offering everyone 20% off from Small Businesses Saturday through Cyber Monday. The code is WARMFUZZIES. Run do not walk to your computer! Enjoy!
Ilia Beauty: I don’t think I talk about this brand enough. I keep trying new to me things and I really love them all. When I finally get the right color for the SPF Serum it is going to be even better. I recently go the eyeshadow palette that everyone raves about. It is a great set of colors. But my all time, hands down favorite is the mascara! Holy cow!! I recently tried another green beauty mascara that is new to their brand. It does not hold a candle to Ilia. For Black Friday Only the sale is 20% off with code UNWRAP20.
Integrity Botanicals: This online green beauty store was one of the first my friend introduced me too. Terri and her team are so personable. Anything you need help with they are there. I love that with every order you get to pick 3 free samples. It’s a chance time to try things. Integrity Botanicals is localish to me. They are in New Jersey.

Karité Shea Butter: This brand is so special. It was started by 3 sisters from Ghana. Their star ingredient is Shea Butter. I am currently on my second bottle of their hand cream. It is so great. I can’t wait to try the body butter next. Karité deserves a whole blog post which I will do in the future. But for now I wanted to share what their sales are this week.

The sales for this week are 25% off their entire website beginning today, Monday (11/23) through next Monday (11/30). Get zesty clean!
Organic Olivia: I feel like I’m a little late to the game with this incredible company. I have started to use so many of herbalist Olivia Amitrano supplements. She even came out with a line for Kids that I have been using with my son. I sneak it in his oatmeal. Shhh! 🙂 For starters, since I’ve been taking the NOT YOUR AVERAGE Probiotic which is a 3-1 Prebiotic, Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme, I’ve seen such a difference in my gut. Also she just launched has sold out already the Guardian Bundle (I just got my order) which she created based on everything she learned through the craziness that is 2020. This needs it’s own whole blog post review. There is so much to unpack about this company and products. Sale begins Friday (11/27) and it will be 20% sitewide. OO is launching their tote bags that day too and when you buy $150 or more you get one of your choice for free. I can’t wait to get one. They are so cute. Shop here!
Pleni Naturals: Now if you’ve been around my blog for a little while you know that this brand is one of our household staples. The Apple + Broccoli Hair & Body Wash is our favorite for my son’s bathroom. I love the Enzyme Cleansing Oil for myself. 🙂 I love their Organic Muslin Bags to use for gifts. New to the shop is a limited edition FRUIT & VEGGIE Puzzle. It’s beautiful and another great gift idea for the puzzle lovers out there. From Monday through Cyber Monday (11/23-11/30) Pleni will be offering 30% off on everything sitewide except the GIFT Sets. Get shopping here.
