I love when I stumble upon a beauty brand that is devoted to making people feel good inside and out, especially when said brand has such a fun background as Live Beautifully’s! Live Beautifully, which creates unique and natural beauty products, was started by husband and wife duo – Aaron and Nicole Wildasin. The high school sweethearts, being of the artistic sort, both have a background in graphic design and were inspired by nature found in the Colorado Rockies to create a brand of beauty and personal care products that are both natural and unique.
I had a chance to try a few of their products and I have to say what first caught my eye was their packaging. I can definitely see Aaron and Nicole’s design roots showing – the packaging for all of Live Beautifully’s products are beautiful! If you have a moment, you should definitely stop by their site and see how pretty everything is – very aesthetically pleasing.
The second thing I noticed was how ridiculously well-priced their products are – lip balms are as low as $4! And they have sales! I don’t know about you, but I love that Live Beautifully is a natural brand that is creative (hello, Raspberry Iced Tea lipbalm anyone?) and affordable!
I tried their Summer Fields mini perfume, Almond Biscotti old fashioned lip balm jelly, Urban Breeze solid cologne, and Sweet Moscato lip balm. The mini perfume and solid cologne are perfect for traveling. Initially I felt like they smelled quite concentrated, but once I applied them to my skin the scent mellowed out but still lingered until the end of the day. Summer Fields has “Notes of: Soft Vetiver, Sweet Oak Moss, Wildflowers, Baked Earth”; I love most anything that smells of vetiver and this scent is no exception, it’ll transport you right to a warm summer day.
Urban Breeze is more of a masculine scent, it has more of a clean cologne scent. The consistency is pretty hard and stable until you rub your fingers in it, then it sort of melts as you rub your fingers in it.
My favorite item right now though is the Sweet Moscato lip balm, I usually get terrible chapped lips during the colder months but I’ve consistently been using the lip balm – which, by the way, smells (and tastes) amazing! It’s sort of sweet with just a splash of tart, my lips are soft as ever. Plus, Live Beautifully has so many fun flavors, they would definitely make a great gift, or party favor for a bachelorette party or spa day!
