Your time is precious and so is your counterspace. You have things to do and people to see and you need a morning routine that is fuss-free and fool-proof. Want to know how we achieve Flawless Coverage in Three Easy Steps using our nontoxic, all-natural cosmetics?

W3LL PEOPLE's plant-based, non-toxic Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer

Prime, Perfect and Protect – Your skin is going to love the multi-tasking benefits of our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer. Simply blend 2-3 drops of our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer into skin to help even your skin tone, prime the skin for foundation, and add a layer of SPF 30 environmental protection. Bio Tint uses organic coconut oil, ginseng and algae to nourish skin and broccoli seed oil to smooth and prime your skin.

W3LL PEOPLE'S non-toxic, plant-based Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer

Cover, Conceal and Correct – Our Bio-Correct Multi-Action Concealer is your secret weapon! Bio Correct provides instant and long-lasting coverage for existing blemishes, dark circles or hyper-pigmentation, while also depuffing, brightening and improving skin with a robust cocktail of organic algae, coffee, pomegranate and anti-aging peptides! Tap the whipped mousse formula into under eyes, onto sunspot and over any redness or discoloration for coverage that both covers and works to correct.  
W3LL PEOPLE'S non-toxic and plant-based Bio Brightener Invisible Powder

Buff, Beautify and Brighten – Finish by quickly buffing a light layer of our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder over your entire face using small, circular motions and a Kabuki Brush. The crushed freshwater pearl powder in our Bio Brightener Invisible Powder melts naturally into skin, creating a soft-focus finish that minimizes pores and softens fine lines while also helping create a naturally luminous glow.

W3LL PEOPLE's 7-in-1, plant-based, vegan, non-toxic Bio Booster Facial Serum

Hydrate, Heal and Highlight –  Want to work some plant-based skincare into this get-up and glow morning routine? Simply press 2-3 drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum into skin either before or after finishing the above steps. Applying it first will help wake skin up, prime it and allow the serum to combine with the Bio Tint for a semi-sheer serum foundation. Pressing the oil into skin as a final step will help add a beautiful glow and finish to the overall look. Bio Booster has a powerful 7-in-1 botanical formula that is loaded with good-for-you ingredients that your skin will love, such as turmeric, sea buckthorn, rose hip, pomegranate, algae, jojoba, macadamia oil, olive oil, broccoli and carrot seed oils and more! 

These three products are all you need to achieve a smooth, glowing complexion in minutes, while simultaneously providing your skin with nourishing hydration and SPF 30 protection that will shield your skin from environmental stressors throughout the day.

DISCOVER THE LATEST IN CHEMICAL FREE SPF BY W3LL PEOPLE

Have Safe Sun: The latest in chemical free SPF by W3LL PEOPLE

Are you ready to get out there and enjoy the sun without the fear of sun damage, or sunburn? Time for you to get acquainted with our SPF Dream Team! The four products above were created fo yo glow, but have the added benefit of protecting you from environmental damage. Here’s why this good-for-you collection will quickly become your trusted regimen for sun protection and repair!

LAYER UP, BUTTERCUP

Did you know conventional sunscreens can contain harmful ingredients such as Avobenzone and Oxybenzone? Both of these seriously toxic ingredients have been linked to photoallergic reactions, endocrine disruption and bioaccumulation. Why battle one nasty with another nasty? No bueno. That’s why our products use the unbeatable defense power of zinc to provide a physical barrier between you and the sun.

We recommend applying our Bio Tint Multi-Action Moisturizer SPF 30 every morning. This award winning product protects your skin with SPF 30 broad spectrum protection thanks to the power of pure zinc and a host of antioxidant rich organic botanicals that hydrate, nourish and soothe.

If you want to double down on protection, add another dose of SPF by lightly buffing on a layer of our Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 over Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer. Give extra attention to areas that get targeted by the sun, such as the top of your forehead and your nose. It may also be used by itself for a solid SPF 15 which is typically plenty for work days when mainly indoors.

And don’t forget about your precious lips! They are so susceptible to sunburn and are often forgotten. Thankfully our clear Nudist Lip Butter 0 is the perfect way to look gorgeous and nourish your lips with organic rosehip oil while also shielding them from the sun with zinc’s natural, safe environmental protection.

TOUCH UP AND GO, GIRL

How about sun protection that not only shields you from environmental damage but also looks great!? Instead of reapplying a cream sunscreen to your face, which can wreak havoc on your makeup application, leaving skin oily and pores clogged, simply buff another layer of our Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 onto skin for a quick-touch up that will reinforce the SPF benefits! Pro tip: try putting Altruist Foundation Powder into your favorite refillable brush for SPF protection on the go!

REVERSE AND REPAIR

Protecting your skin from environmental damage doesn’t end when you leave the beach. Antioxidants are the secret to repairing damage that has already been done, and helping to prevent future sun damage.

Both of these products you’re wearing during the day are working triple duty. Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer SPF 30 and Altruist Foundation Powder SPF 15 both are chock full of anti-oxidant rich, plant-based ingredients to improve your skin quality for a flawless and radiant complexion, while defending against environmental damage.

Bio Tint is loaded with organic broccoli seed oil, rosehip oil, turmeric and bio -peptides that rejuvenate skin and boost collagen. Altruist soothes and nourishes skin with pearl powder, organic green tea, and organic aloe.

Feel like your skin could use an extra dose of antioxidant love? Meet our Bio Booster Facial Serum, which touts a 7-in-1 formula powered by organic botanicals that help repair and soothe your skin after a day in the sun! Organic Rose Hip and Pomegranate rejuvenate your skin while our powerful algae complex brightens and corrects. A long list of powerful plant-based ingredients, such as Sea Buckthorn, Broccoli Seed Oil, Jojoba and Red Raspberry further work to improve your skin’s appearance and combat breakouts. Press 2-3 drops into skin at the end of the day, remembering to treat your lips, neck and chest as well!

We know that our SPF Dream Team will have you ready for anything that summer sends your way! Share your sun-filled adventures with us on Instagram using @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL!

Why Black Clay is Your New BFF

If you’ve been around here for a minute, then you already know that we are huge fans of Osmia Organics. Osmia is our go-to recommendation for people looking for clean, healthy skincare options and we’re thrilled to be partnering with Osmia for the entire month of June. We’ll be including a deluxe sample of Osmia’s Black Clay Facial Soap with all online and phone orders through June 30th!

We’re going to turn to turn it over to Team Osmia so they can tell you more about this fan favorite, which we know you’ll love as much as we do! Read through to learn more about this fan favorite product, then head to W3LLPEOPLE.COM and place your order to receive your free sample.

Hello W3LL beings! We’re thrilled to be working with W3LL PEOPLE and to tell you more about our hand-crafted Black Clay Facial Soap.

We grew up watching our moms lather their favorite bar soaps between their hands and scrub their faces diligently every day. Then, out of nowhere, facial bar soap got a bad rap! Actually, bar soaps were not only abandoned but actively scorned by dermatologists. You’ll hear that they’re drying, that they disrupt the acid mantle, that they strip the skin – you name it. But all those accusations apply to commercially-made soap that’s loaded with unnecessary chemicals and robbed of all the good stuff. We make a different kind of soap. And we think bar soap has worn the scarlet letter for too long. So, we’re here to restore your faith – and your complexion.

osmia-x-w3ll-950

First of all, a word about how we make our soap. If you’re interested in the nitty gritty, we have an entire post about our method of soap making – you’ll be a pro after reading it. But, if you want the short version, here it is. We combine organic plant oils and sodium hydroxide and stir them up with a mixer. The mixing causes the process of saponification to begin: molecules rearrange themselves in a soapy dance, and, over the course of about 72 hours, we are left with only soap molecules and glycerin.

Soap molecules have a water-loving end and a grease-loving end, a structure that explains soap’s efficacy as a cleanser. The grease-loving end grabs onto oil and dirt on the skin as you lather up, and the water-loving end pulls the soap and dirt off your skin when you rinse away the bubbles. The glycerin in the bar stays behind on the skin and draws moisture to your skin throughout the day.

Now that you know how soap works, let’s dive into the reasons we think you will fall in love with our Black Clay Facial Soap!

1) SUPER CLEAN INGREDIENT LIST

So many commercially made soaps have ingredient lists that make your brain hurt just trying to pronounce them. Not this little piece of black magic – it contains only the good stuff! Here’s the full list – an asterisk means it’s certified organic: saponified oils/butters of olive*, responsibly-sourced palm kernel*, mango*, coconut*, sweet almond*, castor*, avocado*; coconut milk*; Dead Sea mud; saponified jojoba oil*; Australian black midnight clay; proprietary blend of organic & wild-harvested essential oils; non-GMO mixed tocopherols; rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) CO2 extract*. No fillers, no unnecessary chemicals, all nourishing to the skin.

2) SUPER CLEAN SKIN

When you use facial bar soap correctly, using warm water, and a 30-second, gentle lather with your fingertips, the dirt and germs go down the drain. When you rinse, your skin feels soft and clean, not dry and tight. It’s strong enough to remove makeup but nourishing enough for daily use.

3) NO NASTIES

If you’re trying to stay away from certain chemicals, facial bar soap is the way to go. Many liquid cleansers have antibiotics, surfactants, and preservatives that can shed toxins into our water supplies and septic systems and create resistant bacterial strains in our ecosystem. Plus, who wants to rub chemicals on their face, anyhow?

4) POWERFUL ACTIVES

Almost 800 reviews on our website tell the story of how this soap has helped people with sensitive-skin, perioral dermatitis, eczema, and acne issues. We think it’s because of these beautiful, natural healers.

Dead Sea Mud

Mud found in the Dead Sea (a giant salt lake surrounded by Israel, Jordan and the West Bank) has been a beauty secret for millennia. It’s rumored that glamorous Cleopatra spent time in the Dead Sea, soaking up all that the wondrous water had to offer. Today, thousands of hopeful tourists visit the Dead Sea each year to float and cover themselves with mud overflowing with sulfur, magnesium, sodium, phosphates, potassium, calcium, and bromides. Studies have shown that the high mineral and salt content can hydrate skin, reduce inflammation, and are full of anti-microbial properties, beneficial for acne, psoriasis, eczema, and dermatitis.

Organic Mango Butter

Cold-pressed from the mango seed, this uber-moisturizing, thick butter is packed with essential fatty acids. Soothing and rich in texture, mango butter is gentle enough for sensitive skin and helps protect skin from environmental stressors. It’s a natural source of vitamins A and C, giving a glowing and plump appearance to the skin.

Organic Avocado Oil

Pressed from the avocado seed, this thick green-hued oil is full of fatty acids, minerals, and antioxidants, conditioning the skin and leaving it soft and nourished. “The beta-carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D, and E found in avocado oil help moisturize and protect your skin from damaging UV rays and increase collagen metabolism,” says Healthline.

Also studied for its antimicrobial benefits, avocado oil could assist in healing wounds, based on a 2013 study. One more cool fact? It contains chlorophyll, making it like a superfood for your face!

Organic Coconut Milk

Applied directly to the skin, coconut milk smoothes the surface and provides Vitamin C, improving the skin’s appearance and elasticity. Within the Black Clay Facial Soap, the coconut milk also helps produce a beautiful white lather, free of sulfates and chemicals.

Australian Black Clay

This mineral-rich clay detoxifies the skin, clearing congested pores of dirt and debris while replenishing and tightening the epidermis. Minerals help to plump the skin at a cellular level, allowing skin cells to retain moisture more effectively.

You don’t have to take our word for it, just read the 781+ reviews on our site and make your own decision. Men and women of all ages (from teens to seventies – seriously) love this beautiful bar, and we hope you will, too. Bar soap IS better – for our skin and our fragile planet.

With and love and a sincere belief in soap bubbles from us to you,

For a perfect Black Clay Facial Soap experience:

  • Wet your face and the bar, and lather up your hands with the soap until there’s a nice foam. Wash for 30 seconds, gently massaging your skin and keeping your eyes closed. Rinse thoroughly.
  • Keep soap on this soap saver between uses.
  • If you’re going away, take it with you! Use this soap travel bag, and take your soap saver with you. Just rinse the bag and let it dry when you get home.

What the people are saying:

“I love this soap! Has been amazing for the dermatitis on my face. Finally, it has cleared up and staying gone! I will purchase this again.”

-Sharry C, June 2018
“The Black Clay Facial Soap cleared my perioral dermatitis within two days. I have tried more products than you can imagine over the past year. Nothing worked until now. I cannot thank you enough. I’m now your biggest fan.”

-Allison M, May 2018

 

“This is a fantastic skin cleanser! I suffer from rosacea and perioral dermatitis and Black Clay Facial Soap has helped keep my symptoms under control. It will surely last a very long time. No heavy fragrance which is also ideal. I really love it and it has become my go-to face cleanser.”

-Rachel H., June 2018

1. Authentic, premium quality, plant-based ingredients.
We believe luxury isn’t based on arbitrary prices and empty promises, but product quality and authenticity.

2. Natural cosmetics that out-perform their toxic competition.
What we put on our body goes into our body. For W3LL PEOPLE the choice is clear: if ingredients represent potentially harmful side effects, we don’t use them. Best-sellers like The Expressionist Mascara and Bio Tint Multi-action Moisturizer with SPF 30 are just two of our award-winning, game changers that prove conventional makeup falls short by comparison. Our ingredient labels draw praise from the biggest natural beauty advocates, while makeup junkies don’t miss a thing from the toxin-laden brands they once thought couldn’t be beat. Bottom-line, we don’t use natural ingredients just because it’s the right thing to do, but because they’re better.

“Quite frankly, I was shocked to find out how excellent this mascara is. The quality is the best I’ve ever used.” – Gwen

Get the Look: Amanda Seyfried

Get Amanda Seyfried's 2018 Met Gala look using all-natural, nontoxic products from W3LL PEOPLE!

When the stars took to the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala there was an extra special guest in attendance: green beauty!

It’s an honor for us to have our products in the kit of one of green beauty’s best known celebrity makeup artists, the amazing Katey Denno, and we were thrilled to hear that she relied on our premium, non-toxic, super-charged products to complete this gorgeous look for Amanda Seyfried.

This year’s Met Gala theme was “Heavenly Bodies”, and Amanda’s ethereal gown was perfectly complemented by her angelic complexion, which Katey achieved by brushing our Narcissist Foundation Stick on as Amanda’s base, and simply blending the cream formula into her skin. She then set the look by pressing a light layer of our Bio Brightener Powder into areas where she wanted to dial back the shine, while still allowing Amanda’s naturally dewy glow to shine through.

Below is our step-by-step guide for recreating Amanda’s entire Met Gala look, from her flawless complexion to her sultry eyes and berry lips, using W3LL PEOPLE products!  

Skin
Prepare the skin by pressing 2-3 drops of our Bio Booster Facial Serum into cheeks, forehead and chin. Lightly blend in with fingertips. Bio Booster is a 7-in-1 serum that rejuvenates your skin with organic rose hip and pomegranate, while it moisturizes with jojoba, macadamia and olive oils.

Foundation
Apply our Narcissist Foundation Stick using a flat foundation brush. Start in the center of the face and work outward using long, downward strokes.  Apply our Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer to any blemishes or dark areas that need extra coverage.

The cream texture of our Narcissist Foundation Stick will naturally warm up to skin to create a flawless finish. If you are naturally oily, setting the foundation with our Bio Brightener Powder will help ensure that the entire look wears well and lasts all day while still allowing it to look luminous and dewy.

Eyes
Achieve Amanda’s sultry brown smokey eye by lining top and bottom with our Hypnotist Eyeliner in Brown. For added drama, use our Bio Bronzer Powder to smoke it out towards your temple to create a subtle smokey cat eye effect.

Make this eye look pop by brightening the brow bone and inner eye with our Bio Brightener Stick. Finish with two coats of our award-winning Expressionist Mascara for extra-long, bold lashes.

Pro tip: Our Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer also makes a great eyelid primer if you want extra staying power!

Cheeks
For Amanda’s cherub-like glow, simply add a pop of color to cheeks using our Nudist Multi-Use Stick in Nude Berry, and blend into skin using your fingertips. A quick swipe of our Bio Brightener Stick on the cheekbone will add a perfect highlight.

Lips
We’re going to achieve Amanda’s beautiful berry lips by using the Nudist Multi-Stick in Nude Berry as a lipstick. This hydrating, multi-tasking product is perfect for big events! Just toss the tube into your clutch for touch-ups on the go.

Top this with a quick swipe of our Bio Extreme Lipgloss in Berry for a layer of shine and a bit of natural plumping power thanks to organic cinnamon and spearmint!

We love seeing the nontoxic beauty looks that you create! Share them with us on Instagram using @W3LLPEOPLE and #BEW3LL!
