Being in my 30s and well on my way in this wellness journey, I’ve really started paying attention to the products I use on my skin. It is the largest organ we have, after all! But talk about the head spins! There are so many “natural” options lining the store shelves in pretty packages with catchy phrases. It’s overwhelming to know what’s what if you’re new to the non-toxic bandwagon. 

Nothing infuriates me more than a chemical cocktail disguised as “natural,” so I’m going to cut right to the chase here. You’re a busy mama, and my guess is you’ve already spent too much of your precious time trying and being disappointed in deceptive skincare products. I know I’ve been down that road many times myself. 


Therefore, when I found Primally Pure, I was ecstatic to have finally found a brand that not only lives up to its name ingredients-wise but actually works!

Here are a few of my Primally Pure faves. And if you’re interested in trying this fantastic brand, save 10% on your first order with code: Dawn10. As an affiliate, I receive a small commission. There’s absolutely no extra cost to you, but I like to be completely transparent with you.

Here are my top favorite Primally Pure Products:


Charcoal Deodorant – Primally Pure Charcoal is the only natural deodorant I’ve been able to stick with since making the switch from aluminum-based antiperspirants. No stinky pits here, even on those super humid Iowa days when I’m dripping in sweat the second I walk outside. The best part – none of the pore-clogging or skin irritations I experienced with other all-natural, baking-soda-based brands. You only need two swipes of the charcoal deodorant to feel fresh, so you actually save money in the long run! Oh, and your clothes won’t get that weird yellow-ish stain in the armpits either. Maybe that’s the best part.


Dry Shampoo for Light Locks – I don’t like to wash my hair every day. My hair feels healthier, and it saves me time in the mornings on days I don’t. But here’s the matter of day 2 or 3 (or 4, if I’m pushing it) greasy roots, especially after a hardcore workout or a day when I can’t seem to keep my hands out of my hair. Enter Primally Pure Dry Shampoo. A sprinkle of this stuff and your hair looks and smells like it did on day 1.

Are you a brunette who struggles with the white powdery residue of some dry shampoos? Primally Pure makes one for dark locks, too. It’s made with cocoa powder and blends in seamlessly with darker shades. As a blond, I don’t have quite the same trouble, but I love how Primally Pure takes care of my dark-haired friends.


Dry Brush – Daily dry brushing of the body increases circulation, exfoliates for smooth skin, and detoxifies the lymphatic drainage system. I do this before I shower and love the invigorating feel of the coarse bristles. Simply start at your feet and work your way up your body with small strokes. Here is a quick tutorial (since I was new to this practice, I found this helpful).

Primally Pure also offers a facial dry brush to incorporate dry brushing into your morning and nighttime routine. The bristles are softer than the regular body dry brush and helps remove dead skin and blackheads build up to improve appearance. If you struggle as I do with deep pores or festering breakouts – you need this quick practice in your life. Brushing these soft brustles over my face daily is a little piece of heaven that is easy to get addicted to doing.


Clarifying Serum – I started using this Clarifying Serum as a last-ditch effort before I succumbed to Botox. At 30+ years old, I was noticing fine lines, and I wanted to backtrack my face aging a bit. I was a skeptic of the facial rollers fad but thought I’d give it a go before getting needles in the forehead. I’m so glad I did! After one week of using the Clarifying Serum with the Gua Sha and Ridged Roller, I could literally see my forehead lines soften and nearly diminish. Score! Needles averted!

Now, I do this routine daily and love the quick, spa-like feel before bed. I haven’t splurged on one of those mini beauty fridges to keep the stone tools cool and soothing because honestly, who has the space for even more “stuff” in our bathrooms like a mini beauty fridge?! You can also store them on a stone counter that chills naturally in the winter or in your kitchen fridge if you want them more chilled and don’t mind the inconvenience.

I catch my littles grabbing my roller as they love the soothing feeling to their faces as well. It’s so adorable!

Primally Pure has so many products for beauty and body wellness. I can’t wait for you to try them for yourself! It feels good knowing exactly what we’re putting on our skin and seeing results. And it’s nice to feel a little indulgent in my self-care routine – the quick pampering here and there lifts my mental wellness. And we can all use a little uplift each day, right?

I'm Dawn Marie.

I’m a 30-something, straight forward, rural Iowan with big, positive dreams. I love running to help clear my mind and soul and squeezing in a good sweaty workout to kick some stress. My style is simple and rustic. I am fueled by kitchen dance parties with my three beautiful girls, and I love me some barn wood. Mmmmm – Yes! I can’t live without my Mama Tribe, Amazon, Target, and good music. I’m obsessed with off-the-beaten-path eateries and have a passion to pursue big dreams!
