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

Deep Steep Fig Apricot Body Butter

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.

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.

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

Andalou Naturals 1,000 Roses Serum

I recently purchased this serum when I ran out of a more expensive serum that I had been using. It worked great, but because we need to reduce our budget wherever possible, I decided to look for a less expensive version. The Andalou Naturals 1,000 Roses serum costs about $20 less, so I figured it … Read more

Beware of Greenwashing

As more and more people demand safer products, there are more companies that make them. Unfortunately, there are also companies that are engaging in some creative marketing to make their products appear safe when in fact they are not. This is called greenwashing. Every time I see a commercial for products I know contain toxic … Read more

Heritage Store Rosewater Spray

Heritage Store brand rosewater spray is was one of the items I bought on my first shopping trip to replace my old toxic products. The  8 oz. spray bottle is what I normally buy, though it’s available in smaller sizes.  It smells like a freshly picked rose.  It’s one of many nontoxic items I’ve curated … Read more
