Back To Base : Clean Beauty Market

When you enter into Clean Beauty Market in Miami on the Gold Coast, something exciting completely comes over you. There must have been something in the air because upon entering, it was hard for me to leave. I can’t put my finger on what exactly it was, but I fell in instant love.. And didn’t leave for a further two hours. I was already apologising to my future self and my savings account in one of those #SorryNotSorry moments. My skin is thanking me at least.

Could it be for my love of beauty products? I mean, I could never have enough, could I? There was an abundance in ever way I turned of delicious, creamy, luscious and luxe products at my finger tips. Just as I was becoming unsure of which way to turn first, I was greeted by the store owner Erin. She clearly had the same enthusiasm as I did for everything beauty, but a wealth more knowledge for my take home. It was a match made in beauty heaven. I was hooked.

I was offered a lavender water, which I was skeptical of drinking at first, but glad I opted for the taste. It’s a perfect drink for a girl like me – the ones who feel guilty drinking anything other than water or champagne (yaaaassss girl). Healthy, great for your body and even better for your mind and those afternoon cravings. Probably would go well with a Vodka too, because #balance.

Was it the vibe that I was loving? Possibly. Probably! It was like a fresher, healthier version of a larger chain store that belonged to your best friend who was so eager to show you all the exciting new arrivals. Erin was so excited to share her knowledge and passion with me. It was contagious. She wasn’t preaching to a choir, but sharing her thoughts and visions, and I was enlightened and immediately taken with her ideas. I was now officially on this clean beauty journey with her. She was a pure delight to watch, floating around her store with an air of delight and excitement to show me everything that was fabulous and required in my bathroom cupboard. Yeah, sold.

Perhaps I was taken with the landscape. From the welcoming aura and the welcoming smile, I wasn’t once feeling out of place or like a bother. The layout and the presentation is clinical but classic. It is next level in clean, but I refer to the traditional we way – it was spotless. Not a product was out of place, but I didn’t feel as if they weren’t to be touched and played with. But this was nothing compared to these products.

I will share with you my favourite products at the end of this post, because my haul was epic and its worthy of its own celebration! I also wanted to share with you about my love and passion for clean beauty. If you aren’t on this train yet, I URGE you to please head into store and chat to the team, or shoot Erin an email so you can catch this bug. Its addictive because its an absolute pleasure!

After my haul, I was so excited to tell you all how amazing my experience was. So of course, I interview Erin for BeckyLamb.com

 

 

Interview with Erin Norden – Owner of Clean Beauty Market

 

B: Why did you decide to open Clean Beauty Market? 

E: I decided to open the store because I am a total beauty junkie but got sick of the lack of amazing options when it came to non-toxic beauty shopping and wasn’t a fan of shopping for makeup at the health food store. I decided to source brands that meet all my criteria – clean/non-toxic, high performing & pretty enough to satisfy the beauty obsessed! We should not have to compromise on any of those things and all the brands in the store reflect this completely. We have about 50 leading clean beauty lines in our store & growing – makeup, skincare, body products, haircare, perfume and inner wellness products.

B: What is the difference between any beauty products, and ‘clean’ beauty products?

E: Clean beauty products are safe to use. That is, they do not contain harmful ingredients that are going to wreak havoc on your skin and your health. So that means no harmful chemicals. Clean products are usually made by ethical companies (which all of our brands are), they are all cruelty free and there are plenty of vegan options.

B: How can I know what products are clean? 

E: It’s always good to arm yourself with some knowledge when it comes it ingredients. This also goes for what you are looking to avoid. You can download the ‘Think Dirty’ App. Of course, if you are shopping with us we have done the work for you. We love providing education and information to people when it comes to cleaner options & ingredients and are happy to assist with any questions if we can.

B: What are your three favourite products you are LOVING right now? 

E: I am LOVING:

The Kjaer Weis Lip Gloss – such a beautiful luxe non-sticky texture!

The January Labs Daily Brightening Tonic – this contains lactic acid and gently exfoliates without being too harsh.

The Beauty Chef Collagen Liquid Beauty Booster – The Beauty Chef inner wellness products are all probiotic based. I firmly believe in beauty from the inside out!

 

My Haul:

 

 

My Favourite Products:

Honestly, it was so hard to simply pick three! Special mention goes to the The Kjaer Weis Lip Gloss mentioned by Erin (its soooooo good!).

The Beauty Chef Glow Advanced Inner Beauty Powder – I have noticed such an immediate difference from this, and so have my friends. I put this on my instagram stories and received SO many replies from you – its popular!!

Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream Tinted SPF30 – Honestly I wish I bought the bigger bottle. It is the perfect day moisturiser as well as giving you a soft glow for a fresh start to your day. So lovely.

Hush & Dotti Licquid Eyeliner – Ensure you have a stable hand because this is not smudging if you get it wrong! It lasts ALL DAY and has a super fine tip.

  • What’s been plying on my mind lately you didn’t ask? (Lol) well, amongst many motherhood things, I’ve got to say my skin and make up routine. Firstly, my skin sucks. It’s always been prone to scarring and pimples have been so bad since I had the twins (cheers, hormones 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻). Secondly, time-poor (and lazy!) me doesn’t put make up on every day for being at home. Thirdly, when I actually do, I cuddle my babies in close and naturally my face touches theirs and I seriously think about the effects of my choices for my skin onto theirs. Could it harm them? Should it be more natural? Do natural products actually work? Well, in short, the answer to all these questions is YES. I think we are all aware there are products for skin and make up our there that are MUCH better for our skin, but did you know how amazing some natural and ‘clean’ make up products there are?? Bet you didn’t know this photo was taken 11 hours after I used all natural and clean products too... VERY impressed. You can see my blog post on my website (search ‘CLEAN BEAUTY MARKET’) to see my haul. You’re welcome x 
PS thank you @finnpoke_ for having me at your Pacific Fair launch last week! I made my own bowl and channeled my inner Nigella 😉

  • Ohhhhkayyyy so I need your help! 
WHICH TEAM DO I CHEER FOR? Should be easy, but it’s not! Here’s the story:
I was born in Newcastle, NSW. I lived there until I moved to Melbourne for a few years, and now have lived on the Gold Coast, QUEENSLAND for 2.5 years. I can’t see myself moving from here for a while yet, and if anything it would probably be back to Melbourne... Fabian is an English-born-but-raised-as-a-kiwi New Zealander who claims himself as a QLDER, which means because we aren’t at all competitive, we naturally have a rivalry for NSW vs. QLD. 🙄 (I’m clutching at straws here) but the pups were NSW originals, PLUS the twins were born here in QLD, so it’s a real debate as to where I belong. I’M GENUINELY CONFUSED. Do I stick with the state I was born with or do I cheer for the state I call home? HELP! #StateOfOrigin
  • Confidence actually takes years to build. After going through all the big milestones, body changes and life challenges that the motherhood journey brings, it’s important not to forget who we are and why we are here. For me, after modelling for all those years, the body struggles have really affected me, being so used to putting such an importance on how my body LOOKED, and not at all on its functions or abilities. It’s hard to change that mindset and see yourself how others see you, or even not worry so much about negatives and begin to see the positives about yourself. Changing your own perspective takes time and is made easier when you’re in the right environment and surrounded by the right people. It also helps when you can wear outfits like this 😂 thank you to @my.second.closet for the complete overhaul of my wardrobe... it was needed, for the bod and the confidence! 
Sometimes we all need that little lift - wether it be a compliment, a haircut or a new outfit. Be sure to start this week off on a positive and give yourself and someone else a little positive reminder. It costs nothing!

  • Yesterday at Polo By The Sea.. I can’t tell you how many times I was asked if I missed the kids.. honestly, we have an amazing friend who takes such great care of them, I hardly worried! We were having so much fun with our friends too, I didn’t once have mum guilt. We all need time off - especially to enjoy time with Fabian was fun! I miss us and our old lives occasionally, but this new life is just as fun! It just takes a little adjusting, juggling and discovery of what’s most important. 
Also, can we have a moment for this outfit? The girls at @my.second.closet have so many gorgeous pieces, it was hard to decide on just one! I’ll upload more details today 💕 #CoulthardAndCo #PoloByTheSea
  • We were a little sad not to wake up to this view from @oakwoodbrisbane this morning.. Carter loved watching all the cars go past on the Story bridge. So cute to watch his little face light up as he gets excited and learns so many new things! Fab and I took the twins for a mid-week staycay this week and it was great to have a little get away just the four of us. I’d also been eyeing off @the_spaghettihouse for so long (lobster gnocchi, you’re welcome!) so we took the kids there too, and they slept in the pram like absolute gems (well, after a little while they did 😉). It was so nice to just get away together. Yep, it’s a lot of organising and preparation but it pays off and is super insightful for our upcoming trip in a few weeks. Where was your first holiday as a family to? We’re keen to do some more travelling in the next few months with the kidlets - this was a perfect first get away for us. We loved it!

  • My happy and adventurous little guy,  Carter 💙 @cartercoulthard #CoulthardAndCo
  • When @misslorianne gives you mermaid hair🧜‍♀️ She is my @stefanhair at queen @stefan_helensvale ... Some foils, a tone and some tape extensions. I haven’t had these since I was pregnant and I’m loving the thickness and ability to style again. It takes a bit more time to do after a wash but I love making myself put in the effort for the way it makes me feel for the days after. My hair holds ZERO curl (it’s always strait!) so these keep it in and have me feeling goooooooood gurl 💁🏼‍♀️ What so you do for yourself after babies to make yourself feel good for days to come?  #StefanHair
  • People say not to work with children or animals... 😂 let’s just take a second to imagine how much spare time I didn’t have with my twinnies to take this boomerang 😂 the old COMFORTIS dog treat jack strikes again! Monthly protection against parasites a bonus ✔️ #ad
  • @BioOilAustralia has been there for me from the start - when I was a teenager and I acquired my first lot of stretch marks. And here we are again in full swing with these twinnies to help improve the appearance of those extra marks and make me feel like ‘me’ again. I just apply twice a day, morning and night, and it only takes two minutes, so I get more time with my little mate Carter. Those chubby cheeks get me every time! #BioOilTwiceDaily #Collab #BioOilPartnership
