Last month I introduced to you Buckaroo Organics soap suds – safe, organic laundry soap and drying balls along with pure essential oils that make laundry so much fun. You can see the post here if you missed it. Today, I got for you Buckaroo skincare products. Read my first impressions.
Stank Whip Multi-Use Odor Eliminator
This organic spray is made of essential oils blend. It is an amazing product that refreshes my room, kitchen or bathroom immediately. I like it very much, since the scent reminds me of citrus or lemongrass. It is great to spray in the air, but you can also safely use it on your carpet or even bedding – it won’t leave any stains (I’ve tested!). It is very convenient and affordable (8.95$) option for those who love fresh scents and are conscious of the fact that popular febreeze and other air fresheners are toxic and may cause serious breathing problems & work as hormonal disruptors. It is also very travel friendly packaging – 4 or 2 oz – so you can take it anywhere.
Tough As Nails Organic Skin Treatment
This oil based skin treatment is my holy grail. Formulated with organic almond, sunflower, rose hip oils and more, this product really works wonders. Example? I cut my armpits so badly while shaving (not sure how, but yikes!) and nothing but that oil helped me right away. The next day my cuts were almost gone. Right now I use it also on my c-section scar to see if it will improve the redness there. It hasn’t been long enough to see the results yet, but I am very encouraged to continue using that treatment. It is also great for dry patches or minor cuts!
This great looking (like ice-cream by the way!) body butter is very rich and nourishing- see the ingredients below. I tried to use it all over my body after showering, however I am not used to such oily consistency; it melts when in contact with skin and for me it did not absorb, and left some residue on skin. I personally find it a bit annoying. I found a different way of using it though – for cracked feet: I apply it on washed & dried feet and put my socks on. After hour my feet are soft and look great! 😉
I can never have enough of lip balms… it is probably an addiction, but I think it is a good one 😀 My lips look pretty and aren’t cracked. Buckaroo lip balm contains organic coconut oils and vitamin E, which works as a natural SPF – protection against harmful UV rays. Essential oils blend is supposed to boost your immune system, so that’s a great alternative to all toxic lip balms containing mineral oil (petroleum!) from the drugstores.

I am excited to introduce skincare products that are all natural and effective. Transderma is using the most potent ingredients available on the market. They care about quality & performance while making safe cosmetics. The product range is deliberately very limited – this is because the brand focuses on exceptionally pure, scientifically advanced vitamin skin care serums for women and men.
What is serum?
In general, serums are considered as more effective since they contain a high concentration of active ingredients, which distinct them from creams and lotions. They also feel more lightweight, offer you more targeted results as well as customization options. The last one is my recent favorite – Transderma serums mix great together!
5 serums – 5 different skin needs
The offer of the brand is limited – but it has its purpose. Transderma focuses on safe, pure formulations that help your skin to look amazing almost right away!

OPTIMAL BOOSTER SERUM CELLULAR REVIVAL – ENERGIZING

As you can see, everyone will find product that suits their skin concern. My personal favorites so far are Transderma C – it makes my skin look smoother and protects it from UV. I use this one for the day under my makeup – which makes its application even easier. For the night I choose something more intense like Transderma M which restores my dry skin while I sleep. It feels a bit heavier/richer when applying, but my skin absorbs it after 30 seconds (yes, it is really dry), and I do not feel product heaviness anymore.
Mix & Match
What I love doing is mixing my serums together to achieve the best possible result. For example: during the day, when sun is strong I mix 1 drop of transderma R to even skin tone with 1 drop of energizing transderma O for moisture balance. It is really up to you and your skin needs, but isn’t it great that you can customize your own serum?
If that sounds good to you you should try Transderma Travel Size Set. This set will allow you to test each of the mini serums (3ml) and decide which ones you love the most. This is what I did before I started to use my full size products. What’s you favorite, natural serum? Would you give this one a try? Let me know in the comments section below.

The seasonal change may be a little tough for your skin. Lower temperature, windy or even rainy weather may be shocking for your complexion. Dryness, redness or breakouts are more likely to occur. How to keep you skin healthy and radiant despite cold weather? Check my favorite tips.
1. Sunscreen is your best friend
It may seem like sunscreen is useful in the summer only. Nothing more deceiving. The fact that the temperature is lower in autumn, does not mean that the sun is not there. Sunscreen protects your skin against UVA and UVB radiation and helps to keep your skin healthy and young. Choose organic sunscreen like this one from Beauty by earth or Coola.
Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin’s outermost surface helping to expose your “new” skin. Dependently of your skin condition you may want to try natural scrubs available in organic stores or you can make your own sea salt scrub with essential oil or coffee scrub. If your skin needs more than that, go to a professional salon and have microdermabrasion or chemical peels done. Ask dermatologist what is better for you.
3. Hydration is the key
When it is colder, you may not feel an urgent need of drinking much water. However, proper body hydration can support your skin look. It won’t be too dry, it will glow instead. You can also try to hook up the humidifier in your room – it’ll moisture the air, preventing your skin from drying out. You can add natural, essential oil, so your room will smell nice and fresh. My favorite is lemongrass or peppermint scent.
If you drink enough but still have this feeling of tightness of your skin, invest in a good moisturizer. If you are planning to use sunscreen during the day, you may want to buy serum or cream to use at night. We do not want to create unnecessary layers of cosmetics on your face if you wear makeup during the day, right? I do recommend checking out Instanatural brand – they do have both serums and creams. Good quality, decent price and natural. You may also make your own moisturizing avocado mask: blend half of avocado with 2-3 olive oil drops, put on your face for 30 minutes and rinse off. Your skin will be satin-soft!
You may be already taking some supplements, but if you want your skin to be radiant especially in autumn/winter season, you should make sure that you are taking collagen. After age of 25 collagen production in your body decreases causing your skin to be less elastic and eventually become wrinkled… Add some collagen to your daily routine to delay this process! You can get collagen in capsules or powder and add it to your smoothie or soup. It has no taste, but it will make your skin beautiful, strengthen your nails and hair.
Yes, I mean it! Apples are not only delicious (especially in Autumn season) but also they contain alpha hydroxy acids like malic acid. In cosmetology, these acids are used in chemical peels to treat acne, rosacea, scarring and other skin conditions. By eating apples you deliver yourself skin-friendly nutrients, including vitamin C, copper and fiber which also helps to keep your skin healthy & radiant.
