As a YouTube content creator for 11 years, 26-year-old Lindsey Hughes is still producing lifestyle-centered videos for her audience of nearly 900,000 to enjoy.
While she loves vlogging her day-to-day life, Hughes is keen on discovering sustainability-minded products and is all about beauty and style. After all, she graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Orange County, CA.
“When I started off on YouTube, everyone was in the beauty and fashion space,” Hughes told The Post. “Over the years, vlogging became more popular and I wanted to evolve my content to talk about ‘real life’: highlights, lowlights, mental health, and where I’m at.”
Now, Hughes lives in Boise, Idaho — a much different way of life from growing up in Georgia and living in LA for four years.
“There’s so much nature and it’s such a big state with so many rivers, lakes, and outdoor activities,” she said. “After visiting, I knew it was the place I wanted to move to. It’s a hidden gem.” Hughes has made a happy home in Boise for about three years to date.
And, even with her move outside of the popular West Coast vlogging location, she still pursues content creation full-time across multiple platforms, including YouTube, Instagram and her Patreon page.
“It’s really cool to be approached by brands I’ve either heard about, followed for years, or purchased from,” she said. “For the most part, I try to talk about brands that are more sustainable and though all brands aren’t like that, it’s what I look for when agreeing on brand deals.”
Ahead, check out Hughes’ sought-after sustainable brands and products she swears by.
Lindsey’s Top 5 Favorite Products
BruMate Toddy 16 Oz. Sunset Insulated Mug, $29.99
“I’ve been using a BruMate for the past year and it’s changed my life,” Hughes said. “It keeps your drink cold for 24 hours, it’s so iconic, and great in the summer for when I’m camping or by the river.”
OrganiCup Menstrual Cup, $27.95
“Another top favorite is my menstrual cup,” she said. “It’s a game-changer — I’ve saved hundreds of dollars because I don’t buy other feminine products. Before I used one, I thought they were harder to use, but it lasts long enough to the point of not changing it every hour.”
Flyby Party Recovery & Prevention Pills, $34.99 (originally $39.99)
“Flyby’s hangover prevention pill is iconic — anyone who drinks needs this,” she said. “It has a bunch of vitamins in it and I typically use it before I start drinking and at the end of the night before I go to bed.”
Nuuly Women’s Monthly Clothing Rental Subscription, $88 per month
“Using Nuuly as a clothing rental subscription is great because I don’t spend hundreds of dollars on new clothes each month,” she said. “I get six new pieces each month for $88 a month and I don’t think I’ll ever go back; I’ll be 80 years old and still using Nuuly.”
Everlane The Forever Platform Sneaker, $49 (originally $70)
“One of my favorites is my Everlane Forever Platform Sneakers,” she said. “I love a good Air Force 1, but I wanted to find a sustainable brand for shoes and Everlane good ones, they’re really comfortable, and I wear them about every other day.”
Lindsey’s Favorite Sustainable Products
HotShine Reusable Mesh Grocery Bags, $15.98 (originally $16.98)
“I love my cute little reusable bag and I put all of my produce in it when I go grocery shopping,” Hughes said. “I feel like mine never gets full and I can fit so much in there.”
Specifically, hers is from Plastic Free Pursuit.
Urban Noon Reusable Produce Bags (8-Pack), $18.99
“I love muslin cotton produce bags because they close at the top, so when I go to the bulk section of the grocery store to pick up pasta or flour, they’re so practical,” she said.
Girlfriend Collective Shell Sport Brief, $18
“I like everything from Girlfriend Collective, especially its no-show undies,” she said. “They’re the most comfortable pair I’ve worn, have no seams, and won’t show through any of your clothes.”
Matt and Nat Sal Card Case, $14.97 (originally $28)
“Matt and Nat has a cardholder I use as a wallet,” she said. “It’s affordable, holds all of my essentials and looks designer.”
WeGreeCo. Washable Cotton Rounds, $7.99
“I’ve tried four brands of reusable cotton rounds and these are the best,” she said. “They’ve held up so well, I use them for my toner and nail polish remover, and I toss them in my normal wash regularly.”
Plaine Products Natural Refillable Shampoo, $30
“Plaine Products is a sister-owned brand in Ohio and all of their products come in a stainless steel container,” she said. “I love the shampoo and conditioner because when I need a refill, they send me a free return slip and give me more product.”
Plus, she said the products last for a long time, work well with color-treated hair, and look “so good” displayed in your shower.
Dropps Stain & Odor Detergent, $18 per month (or, $24 to buy once)
“Dropps is a subscription service that provides dishwashing pods sustainably,” she said. “It’s one of the first brands I found for sustainable detergent, too.”
Papr ‘Bright Shiny Morning’ Zero Waste Paper Deodorant, $14
“Papr is the best sustainable deodorant brand I’ve tried,” she said. “Other brands didn’t work well and Papr has a strong scent with biodegradable cardboard packaging.”
