I started my blog four years ago when I was really into natural/organic, “cleaner” skincare, and use to test out & review SO many different products. NOW – my everyday routine is by no means 100% organic, but I do try and incorporate cleaner options as often as possible. With everything I’ve tried out lately, these are a few of my favorite things, and you won’t even realize you’re swapping out a chemical filled product for a safer, healthier option, because these are so much better!
[[ ScrubzBody Citrus Zest Scrub ]] • Started by a mom of three who couldn’t find products she loved that weren’t filled with artificial preservatives that actually worked and smelled good. One of my biggest issues with natural based products is the scent, I’m a sucker for a really fresh, amazing scent and sadly many (not all!) natural products don’t always offer that due to artificial fragrances. But this… this is the best body scrub I have ever tried. The Citrus Zest scent reminds me of somewhere tropical and the consistency isn’t too dry like many scrubs tend to be. They also offer DIY “scrub making parties” in their NY location, so if you’re ever in that area, I highly recommend checking it out!
[[ BRAID Blues Away Linen Spray ]] • I can never keep enough linen spray in stock, I use it every single day. This one contains distilled water, witch hazel, geranium, clary sage, grapefruit and bergamot essential oils and is a cleaner option than pretty much anything you will find on a grocery store shelf. Ironically, this came in the mail on a day that I was feeling stressed, upset and overall just run down.. this sprayed all over my bed + my essential oil diffuser and my heated amethyst mat definitely helped lift my mood.
[[ MoxieMist Pomegranate Face Mist ]] • The first week of fall and it’s still 90* here in Nashville. When will the heat end and it start to actually feel like fall!? When the weather gets so painstakingly hot, I like to carry a hydrating mist to spray on my face to refresh my skin and cool off. Pomegranate packs a huge punch of anti-oxidants, this mist tones and restores skin balance and is essential all year around, even once the weather starts to change.
[[ Sky Organics Castor Oil ]] • If you’re looking to boost lash growth, forget about eyelash extensions (I’ve heard so much about how damaging they can be), try castor oil as a much safer solution. This one is 100% natural and organic using real castor oil sourced from organic farms in India. Cold-pressed without heat and contains zero harmful ingredients… ZERO! Whether you’re looking to grow your lashes/brows, or looking to hydrate your skin, this has you covered. I love this product, I love Sky Organics and would most definitely buy every single product they sell if I could. Go check out their site, you’ll thank me later!
[[ Native Deodorant ]] • This is something near and dear to me as I have cut out using chemical filled deodorants years ago. Aluminum and toxins in antiperspirants have been linked to some major illnesses, and I have found so many great options that I don’t think it’s worth the risk. These smell great, do their job and contain non-toxic ingredients. If there is one thing I recommend swapping out – it would be this.
