I love skin and body products, but I recently heard that you should never put anything on your body that you wouldn’t drink.
I am a Sephora junkie but I have been stepping out of my comfort zone and exploring more natural and safe products to use. After a bit of trial and error, here are some of my new favorites that I now can’t live without.
#1 Coconut Oil
You can buy coconut oil from any health food store, even Trader Joe’s sells it now. You want to make sure to get coconut OIL and not coconut milk.
Coconut oil has replaced my body lotion. It is so AMAZING to use coconut oil when you first get out of the shower. Pat yourself dry just a tiny bit and then rub coconut oil into your skin when you’re still wet. Warning: a little goes a long way! It smells delicious and is so good for you. It’s especially great to use in the winter. You can cook with it, put some on your hands if they’re dry or dab some on your lips if they’re chapped. I’ve read you can even use coconut oil as a natural love lube.
You can buy cheap coconut oil on amazon here.
#2 Aubrey Organics Rose Hips Facial Moisturizer
This moisturizer is great for dry skin, but it doesn’t feel too thick or heavy. It looks like a smooth, light pink whipped frosting that you’d want to eat.
After using this product I could never go back to any other moisturizer because this feels so light and natural that my skin drinks it right up. You can get more info on this Moisturizer here.
#3 Aubrey Organics Oily Skin Facial Cleanser
I am seriously obsessed with this face wash. It so smells amazing, like a camphor, eucalyptus, mint party on your face. It feels very cleansing but not in a harsh way. You can check out more info on this face wash here . If you smell this you will buy it. Trust me.
#4 Herbal Magic Roll-On Deodorant in Jasmine Scent
Deodorants and antiperspirants can be full of toxic chemicals. It’s especially bad for you to use antiperspirants because they block the glands in your armpits so that you can’t sweat, but our bodies are supposed to as a way of detoxifing.
This is a light and lovely deodorant and I’m not someone with terrible B.O., but I’ve never smelled badly using this. If you have that strong of Body Odor, its a message from your internal system that you need to detoxify.
You can buy some of this Herbal Magic online here.
#5 Toms of Maine Natural Beauty Bar Soap
This bar soap has a light and calming scent and lathers up a lot. There’s a couple different scents to try, I like them all.
Tom’s has lots of great products which you can check out here. I don’t like there deodorant though, it felt too sticky.
Hope you have fun exploring some of these products.
If you have any recommendations too I’d love to hear about them!
