If you haven’t read my post on what ingredients are hiding in your beauty products, you should check that out first. It explains in greater detail why choosing these type of beauty products is SO important.
If you are already a green believer, then venture ahead! This page is meant to be a round-up of all non-toxic beauty products that I have tried, love, and confidently stand behind their ingredient list.
My intention for this page is for the content to be dynamic, meaning that it will change from time to time. I am starting small. Because let’s face it… It’s expensive to purge and totally start over from scratch. I hope to be able to add to this list so that one day I can provide great and safe options for every single beauty product you use regularly.
If you have any great recommendations for this list, please leave them below in the comments.
My current search includes : great hair products. shaving cream. concealer. blush.
NATURAL DEODORANT | SCHMIDT NATURAL CHARCOAL & MAGNESIUM
I have tested SO many different types of natural deodorant. Most of them just don’t hold up all day. Four hours in and I start smelling a little grubby. Doing hair, my underarms are right over people’s heads as I am shampooing them. So I HAVE to use something that protects all day. This brand is the absolute best that I have found. I have linked up my favorite scent because its very fresh-smelling. TBH I don’t like floral scents because they get funky as the day wears on. My bf uses the Bergamot & Lime scent, and it holds up great for him as well. This deodorant is hairstylist tested and approved.
SUNLESS TANNER | BEAUTY BY EARTH SELF TANNER
I found this sunless tanner through the EWG Database Website I first mentioned in my beauty product post. This product was the only sunless tanner that received a score of 1, which means it has a Low Hazard rating. So the ingredients are good, but you really wanna know is how it performs right? I have to say that I love the color this product provides. It gives an olive glow, and not the dreaded “orange” tan that is a dead give away. The only tricky part that you have to get used to is the product takes ALOT of rubbing to spread evenly. It is a very thick consistency, almost like sunscreen. So just take your time to thoroughly spread it around and you will get a great looking tan.
TOOTHPASTE | NATURE’S GATE FLUORIDE-FREE NATURAL TOOTHPASTE
You want to make sure that your toothpaste is fluoride-free. But you also want it to perform well and taste good. No joke, I strayed from this brand one time because I didn’t want to make another stop while running errands. I bought a different brand and it was DISGUSTING. It tastes like herbs and black licorice. Ick! This brand tastes great and makes me teeth feel very clean.
TAMPONS | CORA TAMPONS
If you haven’t already read my review of Cora Tampons, you can check that out here. Since that post goes into much greater detail about this product line, I’ll keep this one short and sweet. These tampons perform very well, are made of organic cotton, and the company has an awesome mission that I feel great about supporting. You can give them a try for one month free!
FOUNDATION | 100% PURE 2ND SKIN FOUNDATION
I cannot say enough great things about this foundation. The pigment in this product comes from fruit, so you know the ingredients are as clean as possible. Plus it contains squalene, which is an oil that your skin naturally makes but starts slowing in production as you age. It is very good for giving that dewy, glowing skin look. The main trick to using it is to really shake the bottle before you use it. This insures that the oil mixes with the foundation color. I am currently using Shade 2, but it is more of a good color for winter time. I am going to buy Shade 3 and possibly use that for summer. Or I may mix the two to get the perfect color. I’ll keep you posted on that tidbit. But seriously… This stuff is bomb! In fact, I want every product on this website. See for yourself.
BRONZER & CONTOUR | W3LL PEOPLE BIO BRONZER
This product is great for bronzing and contouring your skin. I really don’t care for bronzers that have a glittery effect. Because quite honestly, I grew up in the early 2000’s and hit my quota of glittery looks! Ha! This stuff is in the form of a chubby stick cream. I use a few swipes and then use a sponge to blend it in. I am currently using the shade Natural Tan and as the name implies, it makes me look naturally tan!
ACNE FACE WASH | 100% PURE EUCALYPTUS SEAMFOAM FACIAL CLEANSER
For my skin, the acne struggle is so real. And to make matters worse, my skin is also sensitive. So I can only use products that will keep my skin clean without drying it out. I have been loving this cleanser lately. It has a minty, tingling effect that really helps to wake me up in the morning. It does have a clay-like creamy texture, but it suds up once you combine it with water. After a month of use, my breakouts have definitely decreased.
FACE OIL | BIOSSANCE SQUALENE FACE OIL
You know how I mentioned squalene in the foundation above? Well these face oil products are made from 100% natural squalene. This product really helps to moisturize your skin and keep it locked in. This stuff helps tone down the redness in my skin. Plus, it’s EWG certified, which means its’ ingredients are totally safe. If you visit their website, you can receive two samples. Just pay $5 for shipping. If you decide you want to buy their products, use my email firstname.lastname@example.org for $10 off your purchase of $50.
ACNE FACE MASK | AZTEC SECRET HEALING CLAY DEEP PORE CLEANSING
This mask will draw the impurities out of your skin. But realize that if it does this properly, you may break out when you first start using it. This is your skin purging the crud in your pores. Unfortunate part of the process of achieving clear skin. It can leave your skin somewhat red for a awhile after you wash it off. So I would advise applying it at night.
GLOWING SKIN | VITAL PROTEIN GRASS-FED COLLAGEN PEPTIDES
I cannot say enough great things about his product. It comes in a tasteless powder form that easily dissolves in any liquid you add it to. Not only does it help with healing your gut and joints, it also gives an amazing glow to your skin. I noticed the fine lines in my face softening once I started using this product every day. I usually add this to my morning smoothies.
Like I said, I am always on the lookout for new products that can replace nasty, toxic options. If you have any products you love, please message them to me.
