you may already know that i'm a big fan of natural and safe cosmetics - by 'safe' i mean they contain little to no synthetic and harmful preservatives, dyes, foaming agents, etc. remember: your skin is the largest organ in your body and you absorb whatever you put on your skin! so use good stuff! i always like to think that you should be able to safely eat your cosmetics - not like they should taste good but that the ingredients are such that you could ingest them with no harm done... make sense? to find out more about safe cosmetics and see other products i like, check out these posts. also see the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics to learn more about what ingredients are harmful, etc.
Burt's Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Creme: i really like the idea of hand cream but i haven't found one that i like - until now! usually i find them too greasy where i put it on and then everything i touch turns into a slick mess. but this Burt's Bees stuff is awesome! it's like matte finish hand creme and so moisturizing in the perfect way. coat this on your hands and feet before you go to bed and you'll wake up feeling like a pampered princess! - shop it here.
Weleda Citrus Deodorant: deodorant is one of the most important cosmetics to use in a natural form. your armpit pores soak in whatever you put on them which is why anti-perspirants are the devil! this Weleda deodorant is totally natural and really refreshing. you may need to re-apply after 6-8 hours but with the fresh citrus scent, you'll feel like you took another shower! i use it on my feet too, when i wear shoes with no socks. it also comes in a rose scent. - shop it here.
