The new year always comes with new ambitions and sometimes lofty goals. This year, I wanted to focus on smaller, attainable goals. I decided to look at a few things in my life and see if I could find a better option. See what I'm swapping below.
Swap: petroleum-based ointments for Erin's Faces Tamanu Balm Barrier Salve
I've become more in tune with what's in my products since joining the field of aesthetics. I take time to read labels and evaluate what's inside each jar or tube. That's why I love Erin's Faces. The company was created in 2011 by NYC Makeup Artist, Erin Williams. It focuses on conscious clean beauty. The brand also empowers, educates, and includes women of all shapes, sizes, and shades when creating their organic skincare and makeup.
Erin's Faces Tamanu Balm Barrier Salve is the perfect petroleum jelly swap. This salve will easily take the place of any petroleum-based ointment or jelly in your current product lineup.
It's perfect for any bug bites, burns, eczema, dry patches of skin, baby bottoms, new tattoos, and more. Tamanu Balm Barrier Salve is made from three powerful ingredients: organic tamanu oil (which is a wound healer), organic safflower seed oil (which is high in antioxidants), and locally sourced beeswax (which provides a moisture-rich barrier). It's also PETA-certified and not tested on animals.
I just love the scent of this Tamanu Balm. Since it's a nut oil, it's got a fabulous earthy, nutty, and maple-sugary scent. It's great for the whole family and you can apply it to any skin that could use a moisture-rich barrier.

Swap: Anti-bloating pills for HUM Nutrition Flatter Me digestive enzymes.
I can't tell you how many different products I've taken over the years to help my digestion. I battled bloating for years before figuring out that certain types of foods just don't do good things for my body. HUM Nutrition's Flatter Me is the ultimate hack to manage bloating.
HUM Nutrition is a beauty and wellness brand. Their goal is to help people feel their best from the inside out. HUM has clinically proven ultra-targeted supplements for your skin, body, hair, and mood. They use clean ingredients that you can trust and potent actives that will give you the real results you're looking for. Their products are non-GMO, gluten-free, verified by independent labs for potency, triple-tested
for purity, and made without any artificial colors or sweeteners.
Flatter Me is a special blend of 18 full-spectrum digestive enzymes that help break down your food for better digestion and reduced bloating. It truly optimizes the digestive process by helping to break down protein, carbs, fiber, lactose, and fats. As someone who is very sensitive to dairy, this product sounds amazing. You'd be surprised at how much dairy and lactose can sneak into our foods.
All you have to do is take 1 capsule, twice daily, before your two main meals. Do you want to try HUM's Flatter Me? Use code BABBLE30 for 30% with a $29 minimum until February 22, 2023.
Swap: Sugary sports drinks for Ultima Replenisher
I am all about staying hydrated. It can be hard though when you're constantly on the move and sometimes I need a little bit of help. That's where Ultima comes in. They've got the perfect balance of electrolytes and trace minerals without all the added sugar and junk.
Ultima has been making electrolyte hydration drink powders for over 25 years. They are obsessed with finding clean ingredients and didn't stop hunting until they found the very best blend of minerals to support optimal hydration while using only plant-based flavors and colors. They never use artificial sweeteners or sugar. That means their sugar-free electrolytes are free of carbs and calories too. Their hydrating electrolyte drink mix is also gluten-free, vegan, and keto-friendly.
I got an Ultima Replenisher Sampler 6-Pack that contained the following flavors: Raspberry, Lemonade, Cherry Pomegranate, Appletini, Coconut Pina Colada, and Orange.
Whether you're training for a marathon or simply running your kids around town, Ultima Replenisher is your daily performance drink and water enhancer. The 6 key electrolytes and trace minerals like magnesium, calcium, and potassium will help you hydrate better than just water. Plus, the included vitamin C and zinc offer immune support.

Swap: Average collagen supplements for BioSil
BioSil was created by a research, development, and manufacturing company, Bio Minerals NV. It's based in Belgium and has been around since 1994. BioSil's mission is to support and protect your body’s natural processes. The human body is a regenerative wonder, always repairing and rejuvenating itself, and BioSil's goal is to assist it in doing just that.
Instead of using a powder collage supplement, I love the idea of using Biosil Liquid Capsules. Instead of collagen, they contain pure ch-OSA® liquid in small capsules. BioSil’s ch-OSA® is the only clinically proven supplement that generates and protects your own collagen, elastin, and keratin that’s backed by over 25 years and $20 million of research. Collagen, elastin, and keratin are your BFFs when it comes to hair, skin, and nails. Healthy collagen metabolism is also critical for the proper functioning of bones and joints.
Did you know that starting at age 21 our collagen levels diminish at a rate of 1% a year?! In order to maintain smooth, healthy skin you have to continue to generate and protect your collagen. BioSil is clinically proven to increase body collagen and create a strong multi-directional collagen matrix.
These small, transparent vegan capsules are smooth and easy to swallow and are so convenient. Simply take one in the morning and one at night for luminous skin, thicker hair, and dramatically strong nails.
Use discount code BabbleBoxxBiosil2023 on their website for 25% off a 1 month's supply of Biosil. This code is valid for one-time purchases only and not subscriptions. Biosil® is available in three equally effective delivery forms: Biosil® liquid drops (the most cost-effective and flexible dosing option), Biosil® original capsules (contain plant fiber beadlets with micro-droplets of liquid Biosil®), and Biosil® liquid capsules (these capsules are less than 1⁄2 the size of the original capsules and clearly contain Biosil® in its liquid form).
Swap: Harsh chemical sanitization products for PlaneAire
PlaneAire is a modern travel brand that provides innovative, plant-based products designed to hygienically clean surfaces, sanitize hands, and freshen the air. It all started with Deborah Lu Lynch. She was traveling the globe for work and realized the inherent risk of getting sick. She began inventing and creating products with organic essential oils, known for their antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. This brought about the creation of the signature PlaneAire Blend™ of six organic essential oils: lemon, rosemary, lavender, peppermint, oregano, and thyme. The product line has since expanded and includes products like PlaneAire Clean, PlaneAire Hands, and PlaneAire Wipes.
The Travel Essentials by PlaneAire is a conveniently packaged zip-top travel bag that includes plant-based products that will help you clean everywhere you go, no matter how you get there. It contains one Clean Surface & Air Mist, six individually wrapped Clean Surface Wipes, and one PlaneAire® Hands hand sanitizer blend of your choice. It would be so easy to throw this into your toiletry bag or packing cubes.
That way you can keep your space clean in just three simple steps: spray clean, wipe clean, and sanitize those hands. Use Clean Surface & Air Mist to hygienically clean, freshen and deodorize the air around you. You'll enjoy the signature blend of peppermint, lemon, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and lavender. Next, use Clean Surface Wipes to cleanse frequently touched surfaces. It's got a proprietary blend of essential oils, inner leaf aloe vera, and other plant-derived ingredients proven to leave surfaces hygienically clean. Lastly, use PlaneAire® Hands to sanitize your hands. You can choose between ten signature blends made from premium, nourishing ingredients like green tea extract, soothing aloe vera, hydrating glycerin, vibrant essential oils, and more.
I received the Sandalwood variety and I love the scent. Other blends include Orange Pineapple, Lemongrass Rosemary 3 Mint, Cardamom Lavender. and Pomegranate Basil.
