Like so many other people, after learning about and embracing the Curly Girl Method, I want to take the same approach with my skincare and beauty products. So, I’m going to start CG Beauty on Curly Cailín. Clean Green Beauty. I’m more aware of ingredients, what they do and the damage many of them can cause. And I’ve become a much more conscious consumer, especially when it comes to my skincare.
As some of you may know, I was an award-winning bridal and beauty blogger for three years before I started this blog, Curly Cailín. I’ve had lots of requests and interest in introducing skincare and beauty content, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do! I absolutely love skincare, so I’m really excited to share my tips, tricks, reviews and recommendations with you.
Thankfully clean, green beauty is becoming more of “thing” in the beauty industry in recent years. There’s more to choose from, and less compromises to make, if you want to live a CG Beauty life. If CG Beauty hasn’t already been coined as a “term,” then I’m totally going to claim it! I’m determined to make it a “thing”, along with G.O.A.T.: Greatest Of All Time. You may have noticed it’s now a tab on my site. There you’ll find reviews of all my favourite, holy grail, cult-favourite, Greatest Of All Time products – coming soon!
What to expect
So, what to expect from CG Beauty on Curly Cailín? I’m going to share how I translate the principles of the curly girl method, and what I’ve learned. And implement them into my skincare and beauty regime. I’m in my early 30’s, so anti-ageing is something I’m paying more and more attention to. Things like retinols, vitamin c and cutting-edge technologies and home devices.
So if you’ve been wanting to know how to create a CG skincare and beauty routine, along the same principles of the Curly Girl Method, then you’re going to love this new chapter on the blog. Or if you want to know more about clean, green, vegan, animal-friendly skincare and beauty products, this is going to be right up your street! Make sure you subscribe, and here’s a sneak peak at some of the posts coming up in the next few weeks and months.
Rather than launching straight into product reviews and recommendations, I’m going to start with the basics. Is my skin dry or dehydrated? Just like the different curl types, the different skin types too. Skincare essentials, no matter what your skin type is. And then we’ll get into some amazing CG Beauty brands and products I’ve discovered since my three years of beauty blogging. Not to mention a decade of obsessing and learning about skincare!

I have couperose (that’s what it’s called in Dutch, not sure if it’s the same in English). Even though I know there not much to do about the little visible blood vessels apart from laser treatment, I’d like to know if there is a skin care routine that might reduce redness and prevent more blood vessels from becoming visible. It would be a big help in feeling more confident with a “naked” face!

I’m in my early thirties as well and I’d love to learn more about any-aging products for combination skin.
Perfect, I’m 32, almost 33 and I have dehydrated, combination skin. Stay tuned! I’ve got lots of content coming. x
Any skin type advice and affordable anti-aging CG beauty advice in your new CG beauty section would be fab!
Yes! That is ALL coming!! Can’t wait to get started!

Hey! Super excited about this blog; I’ve just recently started wondering if the techniques I’ve been using for my hair wouldn’t help keep my skin healthier also!!
I do have one question. I don’t usually do a whole face of makeup, but I do wear a tinted BB cream daily just to smooth things out and also provide SPF. Do you have any “CG” friendly BB cream, or other SPF containing product recommendations?
HI, thank you so much! I’m super excited about it too! I use a CC cream sometimes too, and always an SPF during the warmer, summer months. That review/recommendations review is coming soon. Thank you!
Hi, I was wondering what you think of the brand Naif. It is a Dutch brand and I don’t know if you can get it in Ireland but I’ve been using the skincare for a small periode and my sensitive and dry skin really seems to like it. But I don’t know if it contains all good ingredients and if they are animal friendly.
I’ve recently learned about CG and and how much moisture my hair was begging for. Now I’m realizing the oils I was so fearful of have helped my dry skin! I live in a sunny climate and need a safe daily facial sunscreen but I find zinc to be very drying.
Oils are great, however, remember oils are only great for nourishment and sealing in moisture. They’re not for moisturising and hydrating the skin. You need hyaluronic acid and moisturisers for that. Hope that helps x
I’d love to know how to reduce redness on my face so I can feel more confident wearing no foundation and go more natural. Excited to learn more from this blog
Noted! Do you have rosacea? LMK x
Just found your new posts and am very excited!!
A post on sunscreen options for combination, dehydrated, sensitive skin would be awesome! I steer away from vitamin c and retinol because I can’t find a suitable sunscreen…
You have amazing skin! I’m so excited to follow along with your skin care as well as hair! For me it’s a one stop shop!
Aww thank you! I’m excited to start this new chapter on the blog too! x
what do you think about the brand nexus?
I’ve not heard of that brand or used any of their products before sorry.
Elated! I’m 46yr old w/ again, VERY sensitive AND oily and sometimes prone to cystic acne skin I’m struggling to find crunchy affordable convenient products. H A L P!
Hi, I’m in my early 30s and still struggling with blasted acne! Any advice on a clean beauty routine? Thank you!
Coming next week! x
I live at high elevation and so it’s also very dry. I avoid glycerin in my hair products except 2 months out of the yr when it’s humid. I’ve been wondering if I should do the same with skincare? My skin is very dry since moving here and I’m wondering if my products are working against me instead of for me.
yes absolutely! Humectants in skincare will do the same as humectants in haircare xx
