I've always tried to use clean beauty products, but now that I'm pregnant and little dude is about to be here, I stepped up my clean beauty routine, and have been trying out new health & beauty products to step up my everyday routine.

Quip Electric Toothbrush

I know a toothbrush isn't really a clean beauty product, but I wanted to include it because I am obsessed with it! Chris first bought himself a Quip when they went on sale at Target, and he was raving about it for a few months. The next time they went on sale, of course, I had to buy myself the all pink one. haha!

Ever since I started using it, I've noticed that my teeth are smoother & cleaner (vs. using a regular toothbrush like I had been doing), and my mouth feels fresher! In fact, when I went to the dentist last month, they told me to focus more on brushing the back inside of my teeth, and I've noticed a dramatic difference in my teeth already since using this toothbrush.

It's really cool, too! They have a membership where they will send you a new toothbrush head (which includes the battery) once every three months for only $5! Included in the packaging is a coupon code for one free replacement, too! Their website has over 30,000 reviews, and almost all of them are 5 stars!!

Definitely check out Quip's products--conveniently available at Target!

Native Body Wash & Native Deodorant

I have been using Native deodorant for over a year now, and I will never use another deodorant again! I'll be honest, there was a detox that my body had to go through in order for it to work properly, but after that week or so of detox, nothing works better for me. I was having issues with other brands not working or wearing off halfway through the day. I never have any problems with Native. It works well--even with doing tons of physical activity, and the best part, it's clean beauty that smells amazing with naturally derived fragrances.

Native's brand is all about using ingredients that you can pronounce and you actually know what the ingredients are. Native is clean beauty, vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and aluminum-free--all things we can all appreciate in a beauty brand.

Since I have been loving Native's deodorant, I decided to try out their body wash, and I love that, too! I use the Coconut & Vanilla scent in both the body wash and deodorant, and it smells amazing. It's a subtle scent, which I love because I'm not big on strong scents or perfumes.

Sexy Hair Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner

Sexy Hair's Moisturizing shampoo & conditioner have been my go-to drugstore, yet salon-quality products for a while now. I just repurchased my second set of these huge bottles, and I have noticed a huge difference in my hair. It's softer, smells amazing longer, and I don't have to wash it as often. In fact, I've been able to go a week (yes, SEVEN days) without washing my hair almost every week. For a new mom-to-be, having less hair wash days and more time to spend with baby boy or sleeping is essential!

Pixi Glow Tonic

If you've read any of my other beauty posts on here, you know that I love, love Glow Tonic. It's a constant everyday staple in my beauty routine, and there is truly nothing better. Glow Tonic is perfect for any skin type, and has good-for-you ingredients that leave your skin feeling smooth. The Glycolic Acid gently exfoliates your skin, while the aloe vera gently soothes your skin.

I have been using Glow Tonic everyday for over two years (going on three!), and my skin has been clearer, smoother, and my makeup applies so much smoother, too! I use Glow Tonic every morning to gently exfoliate my skin and then I follow up with a moisturizer before starting my makeup routine.

Burt's Bees Mama Bee Belly Butter

This belly butter has been essential in my everyday routine over the last nine months. I used this belly butter paired up with a few other body oils to use during pregnancy, and at 37 weeks, I have not had any stretch marks (PTL!!). Burt's Bees belly butter has a super rich formula with shea butter and Vitamin E. 

The more hydrated you keep your belly (and boobs!!), the easier your skin will be able to stretch without leaving those hard to get rid of stretch marks. This belly butter is also fragrance-free, and 99% natural.

Have you tried any of these products before?!
