What do you picture when you imagine natural makeup or natural skincare? It sounds extreme right? You picture moving into a yurt and never eating meat again. I know, I did too. Until a little research changed my mind.
Did you know our skin is our largest organ? That whatever we put on it goes straight into our bloodstream? Kind of makes you think about what you're putting on your face, right?
Well I have to be honest. I still wasn't convinced. I love my beauty products. And would natural cosmetics or natural skin care REALLY be as effective? So, I challenged myself. I used ONLY natural makeup and natural skin care products for 30 days. Some products I loved, and some…..not so much.
After I finished, I wanted to share the results. These products? The ones I'd buy again and again.
This guide is intended to constantly evolve. As I discover more products, they'll be added to the list. If products are discontinued they'll be removed.
If you are a natural makeup or natural skincare company and you would like me to try your products for consideration…..please email me!
