Not only am I passionate about non-toxic, natural candles - but also the products I use each and every day, which is why I've rounded up some of my favorite skincare products and brands that boast natural, non-toxic, and organic ingredients.
I should start out by stating that it took a lot of trial and error before I really found the products that are working for me now. With that said, I change products seasonally so this isn't always the go-to list. My skin type is sensitive, dry, and I do suffer from the occasional adult acne outbreak (hormones!). This is what's working for me now.
Tata Harper's Hydrating Floral Essence
I am a pretty serious Tata Harper fangirl. Not only are the ingredients pure and non-toxic, but Tata Harper herself is in the trenches designing each formula and even grows some of the plant materials on her farm in Vermont. To hear her talk about her story and how she develops her line is inspiring as a business owner dedicated to creating better consumer products. The price tag is higher than your drugstore face cream, but it's well deserved. They pack a punch and you get the added comfort of feeling certain the products are safe. Check it out on the Tata Harper site.
Goop's Luminous Melting Cleanser
This stuff is seriously a life saver for my dry skin. It may seem like a small fortune to spend on cleanser, but it will last a long time and you'll never have that "squeaky clean" feeling that ends up causing redness and flaking. I use this twice a day and it is the first step in my life-long mission in trying to achieve "dewy skin." You can order it here on Goop's website.
100% Pure Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
Non-toxic, natural skincare doesn't have to cost a fortune and that's proved with 100% Pure's Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream. I gravitate toward anything that promises to wake me up and de-puff. This little miracle in a tube does both. Pick it up on the Detox Market's site here.
Josh Rosebook's Advance Hydration Mask
As I've mentioned, my skin is naturally parched and I need serious moisturizers to keep it looking hydrated. Josh Rosebook's mask boasts aloe vera and numerous plant oils which means it's super natural and will work with your cells to deliver moisture. Pick it up on the Detox Market here.
