Natural beauty lines are certainly having a moment and I personally love that it seems we are all becoming more conscience about what we’re putting on our skin. I by no means have an all-natural beauty routine, but I have been making efforts to incorporate more into my every day.
As this month’s Beauty Edit, I wanted to share some major standouts that have become true favorites in my routine. (There are also a few in this post that I have only been using a couple weeks but that I’m already loving and imagine I will continue to do so!)
All those included here feature natural and/or organic ingredients and while I am by no means a natural beauty expert, I am loving making my personal routine feature better-for-me formulations. Read on for my favorites and as always, would love to hear if you have any natural products you absolutely love!
Hands-down this is one of my favorite cleansers. It is such a luxurious experience! The texture is amazing (thanks to all the oils in it!) and it just smells so.darn.good. Using it feels like I’m giving myself some sort of spa treatment at home. The term “melting” in the title is accurate because it takes off all makeup almost instantly and after use my skin is left glowing, so smooth and feels more hydrated.
To put it frankly, this stuff blew me away. I had been testing out a retinol eye cream in the days leading up to this product showing up at my door and I was experiencing major dryness under my eyes as a result. That thin skin was very aggravated so I immediately slathered this Cream on given the label read “When it comes to dry skin, this bad boy don’t play.” And did it deliver on its promise ten fold! Thanks to its simple formulation of only three ingredients (fair trade shea butter, organic coconut oil & organic olive oil,) this baby ain’t nothing by hydration. If you ever suffer from dry patches – BUY THIS! You can use it on both face + body and I am seriously am so impressed with it.
This is my everyday nighttime eye cream and has been for almost two years now (see here). It helps fight wrinkles and helps keep hydration locked in (which is good for fighting looking tired!) Like all of Tata’s line (which has so, so many good products!), it is formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates. (Side note: her resurfacing mask is next level A+ in my book.)
I picked this up in L.A. at Violet Gray after hearing so many good things about the brand. I bought it in ‘Demure’ and now feel like I have to have it in my purse at all times! It is the perfect little pick me up for either your cheeks or lips (as, clearly, the name indicates) and I find myself reaching for it in the afternoon when I’m heading out to a meeting or an evening event and my morning makeup needs a little boost.
If you’ve been following this blog for a long time, you know this face oil is holy grail status for me. I didn’t buy it last year because I was trying to save $$$ but I just pulled the trigger again because I can literally tell when I’m not using this. The simple formula is only 11 essential oils and after you have been using it for several weeks your skin will be more radiant, more youthful and oh-so-soft. I know it’s so expensive but a bottle usually lasts me 9-12 months and I can tell you it really, really works. I use it almost every night as the last step in my routine.
As you guys know, I have sensitive skin that is worse on certain days than others. It tends to be more finicky during winter so I’ve been integrating this moisturizer into my routine in the morning. After I cleanse, I apply a serum or face oil and then put this all over my face and neck. I don’t love the smell (I’m not personally a fan of chamomile) but I love the finish of this organic moisturizer. It instantly calms any redness or irritation my skin is experiencing and I really appreciate how quickly it absorbs because it means I can instantly get to putting on makeup after applying it.
This is a newer cleanser I’ve been trying and you guys, it smells like a DIY fruit facial! (It has strawberry extract so that explains that but seriously it is awesome smelling.) If I work out in the morning I promptly look forward to using this in the shower afterwards because it’s like an instant pick-me-up. After using it I feel like my serums and moisturizers and makeup go on so well because my skin is firm and bright. I’m also a sucker for good packaging and I truly love the aesthetic and ethos of this brand.
I’ve raved about this product before and it truly is my favorite morning serum. It firms up my skin before applying moisturizer and is made with vegan and organic ingredients that instantly make me look + feel more awake! This brand’s whole line is awesome and I also adore their body scrub (as mentioned in this post.)
On a related note, I’ve been testing out a natural deodorant called Native. Have any of you guys tried it? I’m only one week in and I don’t know if I’m sold (I’ve been wearing Secret Clinical for the past decade or so) but would love to know if any of you have found a natural deodorant brand you think does the job.
