Primally Pure Nontoxic Skincare | Our Favorites

Apr 24, 2020

If you know us Balanced Beyar gals well, then you know that we care about what we put on the biggest organ of our bodies, our SKIN. Each of us personally have been using Primally Pure's nontoxic skincare line for years, and we can't stop telling others about their products because we truly believe in them.

We often get asked,

"Which products do you use?"

"Why do you use them?"

"Am I doing this right!?"

So we thought, why not compile all of this information into one place! Let's talk about Primally Pure's everyday must-haves that work for you!

It's important to us that you know that this is an extremely honest list. We use every single thing below in our daily routines... nothing added for show or to sell you! We truly love these products!

DEODORANT 

Investing in Primally Pure deodorant was the first step that we took on our low-toxic journey.  Think about it, you put deodorant on 1-2x a day! You can reduce your toxic exposure with one simple switch! 

Primally Pure's natural deodorant contains a small amount of baking soda to reduce odor and is fortified with kaolin clay (a powerful detoxifier) and non-nano zinc oxide (soothes irritation).

If this is your first-time using non-toxic deodorant, we suggest investing in their UNSCENTED one first! 

If you're a nontoxic deodorant veteran, ALL of the scents are amazing. Carly's favorite is the Blue Tansy Essential Oil because not only does it smell insanely good but it powerfully combats inflammation, calms irritation, and is potent in skin-soothing properties.

Instructions:  Apply a few swipes to each pit for all-day odor protection. Store in a cool place away from direct sunlight. If exposed to extreme heat, place product in the fridge to restore it to a normal state.

*Alaina keeps one in her bag so she can apply on-the-go. They come in cute little sizes which are perfect for traveling. Her favorite is charcoal. 


DRY SHAMPOO 

This dry shampoo has been a SAVIOR for us on days where we don't have time to shower after a workout.  And sometimes we actually feel that we have way better hair days with this in it! Crazy, we know.

There are two options for lighter hair & darker hair: Light Locks and Dark Locks

Kaolin clay and organic arrowroot powder absorb moisture while adding texture and volume.

Also made with organic essential oils of grapefruit (has natural cleansing properties), lavender (soothes the scalp) and peppermint (stimulates hair growth).

InstructionsApply a few shakes to roots to help combat greasiness + add texture and volume. Blend well with fingertips.


MASKS 

There is literally nothing better than ending your day in a mask, sippin' some hot tea! Primally Pure recently came out with their three masks and we've been obsessed ever since. Our guys are also using them, too. 

Here are your three options: SoothingClarifying and Plumping facial masks (they have such cool colors)

The masks are handcrafted with raw + local honey, mineral-rich clay, organic herbs, vitamin-rich oils and active plant-based ingredients and they help exfoliate, refine texture, infuse the skin with vital nutrients and provide visible results.

We don't have a favorite! We highly suggest grabbing their Mask Trio Bundle  if you're unsure of which one to grab (Don't forget, you can get 10% off with code BALANCEDBEYARS)

InstructionsApply a thin layer to face 1-3x/week after cleansing, while the skin is still moist. Relax for 15-30 minutes, rinse with warm water, and finish with toner and skin-specific serum.


FACE SERUMS 

OK, we're truly in love with the serums. We're not just saying this to say this. We use them EVERY DAY! They are also small and easy to travel with. 

They make your skin feel plump and moisturized and give you a great glow! ANYTHING that softens signs of aging, sign us up.

If we were to pick one serum, it would be the Plumping Serum. We love the orange glow it gives your face...almost like an instant tan! However, you can't go wrong with any of the three serums.

Instructions: Massage 4-8 drops into damp skin after cleansing/toning and before moisturizing for a supple + glowing complexion.

*Alaina puts hers on every morning immediately after washing her face. She also loves applying right before she uses her Gua Sha stone (read more on that below).

 


BEAUTY CREAM

This beauty cream is such a treat for your face. It's feels velvety & luxurious, but does not leave you with that greasy feeling afterwards! 

It has organic jojoba oil (non-greasy, ideal for all skin types), palmarosa (helps to combat acne-causing bacteria), and peppermint (calms + soothes the skin). It's like it has magical powers.

Our favorite scents are the Blue Tansy and Palmarosa + MintWe personally love chilling them in the fridge for a little and then applying it to our skin. Feels so soothing!

Instructions: Apply this nourishing cream to the face and neck for naturally healthy + glowing skin. A little bit seriously goes a long way. Apply to damp skin to make the product go further, last longer and absorb better.

*We would suggest applying it at night because it is on the heavier side. 


 

EVERYTHING SPRAY

We use this spray for quite literally everything like the name says! We can't explain how good this smells.

Alaina uses it as a facial toner. She sprays a few pumps onto a cotton pad and gentle wipes her face to remove excess dirt. 

We like to spray our armpits with it when we forget our deodorant.

The spray includes antibacterial properties which help on some on cuts and scrapes. Carly burned her shoulder with a curling iron and it helped heal the wound nicely with minimal scarring.

A little spritz on your legs after you shave helps prevent ingrown hairs

Instructions: Apply 3-5 pumps of Everything Spray 


LIP BALM

You know how some chapsticks leave your lips drier and more cracked than before? The OPPOSITE effect happens with Primally Pure's lip balm. They are our favorite chapsticks because of how smooth and soft it leaves our lips. 

They have 5 different scents - each one better than the next: lavender, grapefruit, peppermint, creamsicle, and cocoa.

Includes ingredients like tallow from grass-fed cows, coconut oil and shea butter deeply moisturize and heal chapped lips.

Instructions: Apply to lips, around the eyes or any place that needs extra nourishment.

*We keep chapsticks in all the places we frequent daily... in our cars, bags, coats. No exaggeration, we can't go a day without them. 

*Alaina has used hers to sooth dry spots on her face while she's on-the-go.

 


BABY BALM

OK, this Baby Balm sneakily became one of our favorite products. Designed for babies...used by adults like us!!!  It is incredible for dry skin patches, healing cuts, and best of all.... under eye bags & wrinkles! 

Tallow from grass-fed cows (rich in Vitamins A, D, E and K, anti-inflammatory conjugated linoleic acid + antimicrobial palmitoleic acid) deeply moisturizes the skin.

Includes other ingredients like pure emu oil, organic extra virgin olive oil, marshmallow root, and calendula flower to penetrate deep beneath the skin to nourish and heal.

Instructions: Apply this to baby’s bottom, nursing nipples, cradle cap, or any patch of dry/irritated skin.

*Alaina uses this in two ways:

  1. She applies this to her under eyes and crows feet every morning after washing her face. It gives your eyes such an amazing no-makeup glow, and she swears it's helping her wrinkles disappear!
  2. She also uses this on her son's bottom to help heal diaper irritation.

 


COMPLEXION MIST

You know that feeling when you get a big breath of fresh air while standing in a garden? That is what it feels like when you spray the complexion mist. You feel SO refreshed and it wakes you up a bit!

Lavender Complexion Mist soothes irritated + inflamed skin while relaxing the body and mind with its soothing aroma.

The hydrating + toning complexion mists are suitable for all skin types, and we recommend rotating each of them into your skincare regime.

We love the Neroli Complexion mist because it prevents and treats acne while maintaining healthy moisture levels in the skin.

Instructions: Apply 3-5 pumps to the face after cleansing, over makeup as a setting spray, or anytime your complexion needs a pick-me-up.

*Alaina also uses this as a toner sometimes (similar to the Everything Spray above)


CLEANSING OIL (for normal + oily skin)

Ever since we switched to the oil cleansing method, we haven't felt the need to go back to our old face wash. The oil cleansing method utilizes beneficial oils that penetrate deep into pores to dissolve grime and build-up.

This age-old method of cleansing effectively purifies + nourishes the skin while keeping its natural moisture barrier in-tact.

Primally Pure offers three products depending on your skin type: Normal skin, Oily skin, Dry skin

Instructions: Massage a quarter-sized dollop of cleansing oil onto dry facial skin for 60 seconds. Wet a clean washcloth with warm water and place it onto face until washcloth cools. Gently wipe away impurities + excess oil with a washcloth.

*Alaina swears by this cleansing oil to remove tough mascara gunk.


GUA SHA STONE (spa treatments at home)

Who would have ever thought that a stone would be your personal massage therapist (haha) !? This has become part of our weekly self care routine, especially at night after a long day. Sometime about it is so relaxing. 

Facial Gua Sha is an ancient healing technique that visibly rejuvenates the skin through light pulling + lifting massage motions using a smooth gemstone tool.

It works with the skin to support and optimize the body’s own reparative functions by promoting lymphatic drainage, calming the nervous system, relieving muscle tension + tightness, clearing congestion + buildup, and increasing the flow of oxygen and vital nutrients to the skin.

  • How-to:
    • Watch their YouTube tutorial video here and here
    • Divots: Hug bones such as spine, jaw + brow.
    • Longer/smooth edge: Sweep across larger areas of the neck and face such as throat, cheeks and forehead.
    • Teeth/comb edge: Create light friction movements across visible signs of aging such as fine lines and discoloration.

 


BODY BUTTER

This body butter is a great alternative to conventional body lotion. It only contains ingredients that are safe enough to eat!!! That's what we're talkin' bouttttt.

The body butter helps restore the skin to a healthy and nourished state. to feed the skin from within.

Our favorite one is the Almond Vanilla Body Butter - it makes you smell like ice cream!

Instructions: A little bit goes a long way. Apply to damp skin to make the product go further, last longer, and absorb better.

*Alaina loves to use the body butter on dry, cracked hands & skin in the winter time!


 


BODY OIL

You know when you look at someone and you're like "damn, are they GLOWING?". This is how we feel when we use Primally Pure's body oil on ourselves!

Their body oils are a blend of high quality carrier oils + essential oils that leave the skin feeling silky smooth, healthy and radiant.

Blue tansy, Jasmine or Lemongrass - YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG. We are just partial to Blue Tansy because it's the bomb.

If you don't want to commit to one oil, try the Body Oil Collection (Don't forget, you can get 10% off with code BALANCEDBEYARS)

Instructions: Apply to damp skin after a shower or bath. It'll absorb right up!

*Carly and Alaina like to combine a few pumps of oil with our body lotions for an added boost (and amazing scent!).

BABY BAR

Again, designed for babies but used by adults! No joke - it's become our favorite body and face wash (great if you're needing a little extra for facial cleansing).

This organic goat milk baby soap bar smoothly and safely cleanses baby's sensitive skin. 

Includes gentle, non-drying ingredients like organic coconut oil, shea butter, calendula, chamomile, and lavender (those just sound heavenly) to soothe and moisturize while also washing away dirt and grime.

Hack: use this as a facial cleanser for yourself as well! It so creamy, with just the right amount of foam. 

Instructions: Wet face and hands with warm water. Lather bar in hands a bit and then gently apply to face to circular motions. Don't apply to your eyes, as it is not tear free for children.

*Alaina uses her baby bar every morning to wash her face first thing. She also uses it after applying the cleansing oil after removing makeup. 


 

FLOWER BATH

The Beyar girls FRICKIN' LOVE HOT BATHS. Ever since we were kids, is has been something we have always loved to do as a way to relax and calm down at night, as well as help with any sort of body soreness. It's also just such a great way to pamper yourself.

Flower bath contains epsom salt which rids the body of toxins and soothes sore muscles.

It also contains baking soda which has an alkalizing effect on the body and works alongside dehydrated coconut milk powder to leave the skin feeling silky and smooth.

This stuff smells so good that your whole bathroom will have the perfect hint of this fresh flowery scent. 

Instructions: Add a few shakes/handfuls to warm bathwater + enjoy.
