Nontoxic Candle Review

The first time we purchased Tru Melange candles, pretty much everything else in our home was non-toxic.  It hadn’t been high on the priority list, though I figured it would need to happen at some point.  Most candles are made with synthetic fragrances, which had been making my allergies worse.  After reading quite a bit … Read more

Nontoxic Makeup Removing Towelettes

For me, it took awhile to find the right nontoxic makeup removing towelette. It seems like I’ve tried every natural brand of towelette that’s made: Burt’s Bees (sensitive and regular), Yes To (all kinds), Alba, etc. Each one of them made my eyes sting like crazy, so of course I stopped buying them. Within the … Read more

Better Life Whatever Unscented All Purpose Cleaner

Our home used to be filled with the typical products you find in many American homes.  Bleach, air fresheners, scented detergents, scrubs, etc.  Over the years I became so accustomed to the strong odors, I felt like that was how I knew the house was clean.  But, over the years I also started to notice … Read more

I discovered Deep Steep when I ordered some Orchard Pear and Fig lotion online.  It smelled like real apricots/figs.  This stuff is amazing! The smell is wonderful, the consistency is nice, and it contains no harmful ingredients.  I’ve tried several scents, including another favorite, Lotus Flower and Guava. The only one I’ve avoided is Lavender … Read more

Detoxing Facial Masque

The ingredients in the facial masques I was using before deciding to switch to non-toxic beauty products were questionable at best.

Parfum (immune/respiratory/environmental toxicant), Butylphenyl Methylpropional (immune system toxicant & hormone disruptor). Needless … Read more

Real Techniques Foundation Brush

Recently I reviewed Pacifica Dreamy Cover Serum Foundation.  I mentioned the brush I used to apply it, so I figured I should probably write a review of the brush, too!  When I first used the foundation, I tried applying it with my fingers, and it looked really odd.  By odd, I mean extremely thick and … Read more

Pacifica Dreamy Cover Serum Foundation Review

Recently I discovered that the MyChelle Dermaceuticals mineral stick foundation that I have been using was discontinued. Needless to say I was upset. My skin is very sensitive to chemicals, so when I find a nontoxic product I like, I don’t switch unless I’m forced to by extenuating circumstances. Rather than go in blindly, I … Read more
