So, I've decided to give the "My Favorite Things" feature a whirl, yet again. I might not be able to post a fave every Monday, but I will do my best.
This week I am discussing my love of natural, cruelty-free beauty products. I have been on an organic, chemical free kick for a while now. I try to use "green" household products, eat more whole food from the local farmers market, and now I have moved on to my beauty products.
Sooooo... here are a few products I have tried lately that I actually love:
I loovvee this tinted lip balm. For one, it is actually a rich color, not a shiny gloss. Secondly, it moisturizes well, and has a minty feel. 5 stars all the way!
I picked up a bottle of this lotion this weekend. So far so good. It has a nice, earthy scent, and seems rich enough for my dry skin.
I am sure this is TMI for most of my readers, but here I go. I have been interested in moving away from chemical, aluminum based antiperspirant/deodorants and onto something more natural. I gave Tom's of Maine's Long Lasting deodorant a try a few weeks ago, and I am not completely sold.
First off, it is just a deodorant, not an antiperspirant. There are no natural anti-stinkers that will contain an antiperspirant. The smell of this product is nice, but I do have to apply it twice a day, it is not 24 hour protection by a long shot. I am still on the hunt for a more effective natural product.
Well, Monday is here. Let's make it a good one people!
