The weather here is hot and humid and beyond gross and my skin is not happy about it! Thankfully, I’ve found some natural body products that actually work and don’t use really bad ingredients. Happy shopping!
Hair – I already wrote about my love for Kiss My Face Miss Treated shampoo (Amazon sells it as a pack of three). Still loving it! I’ve settled on a conditioner that actually moisturizes and isn’t a fortune, Avalon Organics. A little bit goes a long way so it lasts a while.
Body – Avalon Organics comes to the rescue again with a great unscented body moisturizer. I bought a jumbo bottle of it at Whole Foods for about $16.
Face – Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel is great and kept my skin very clear during my pregnancy. It seems expensive but you only need to use a tiny bit. My first bottle lasted me about five months. Korres moisturizers are amazing. Sephora periodically sells a two-pack version for $4 more than a single bottle. I thought there was some sort of mistake but no, it’s true. $35 for one bottle, $39 for two. Amazon has some for less money but the selection is spotty.
Fresh Sugar lip treatment is the best ever. It’s hard to find lip treatment that doesn’t contain petroleum! Yes, that’ petroleum like oil and gasoline and all those nasties. Oh, and don’t be fooled by the ingredient mineral oil – it’s the same thing! Just be careful with the Fresh Sugar lip treatment because it will melt in really hot weather (don’t leave it in your bag in a hot car or anything).
Deodorant – I’m still on the hunt. During my pregnancy I used Tom’s Long Lasting deodorant and it was fine. Between the heat and my crazy postpartum hormones, it’s not cutting it these days. As to not offend those around me, I’ve switched back to Dove for now.
