safe beauty products that I love!

safe and natural beauty products 1.  100% pure honey almond lotion.  I can’t even explain how much I love some of 100% pure products!  Their honey almond lotion is my favorite lotion I have ever owned!  I have bought it over and over again.  Only safe and natural ingredients, you won’t be able to find one bad ingredient in this product (trust me, I have looked).

2. 100% pure tinted moisturizer.  I have bought this a couple times and have really liked it.  It doesn’t have a ton of coverage, I would say medium to light coverage, perfect for an everyday look.  If you want more coverage I would go for the revlon photoready foundation.

3.  Honest company shampoo and conditioner.  I use the shampoo and body wash on my daughter and I also use the shampoo for myself.  You really can’t go wrong with anything from this company!  It’s all great!  Wish I would have started the company….I read online recently that the company is worth a couple billion dollars right now.

4. Revlon photoready foundation.  This is a must for when you want to have more coverage.  This foundation is the best I have found for a drugstore foundation.  It has a rating of 2 according to ewg.org.  I like to wear this foundation on the weekends when I feel like getting out of my yoga pants for once and actually get ready.

5.  Avalon organics CoQ10 facial cleansing milk.  I have been using this face wash for a year and still love it!  It’s so great because it actually gets all of your makeup off.  I dab a little bit of this face wash on a q tip to get any left over makeup left on my face and it gets everything off.  This face wash is great for wrinkles too.  I found this at sprouts and whole foods.

6.  Avalon organics shampoo in lavendar.  I have used this shampoo before and really like it.  I bought it at sprouts.  It has a really nice smell and worked really well.  If you haven’t ever used natural hair products your hair will be really oily at first when you start using them, but after a while it won’t be.  You’re hair has to detox from the chemicals in your previous shampoo/conditioner.

7.  Giovanni deep conditioner.  I recently bought this conditioner and have found it to be the best natural conditioner so far.  It works really well!

8. John masters organics.  I haven’t actually tried this yet because it is pretty pricey!  It’s going to be the next shampoo and conditioner I try because I have heard great things about this brand.

9.  Babyganics mineral based sunscreen.

There you have it!  This is my list of products I have used and loved!  I make my own mineral makeup foundation, face lotion, body lotion, face oil serums, and sunscreen.  I am hoping to get some of these tutorials up soon.  This is a great list of safe products if you don’t feel like making your own.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!

honey almond butter

I think it’s safe to say that I’m slightly obsessed with nut butters.  Sunbutter, almond butter, cashew butter, peanut butter….I love it all!  Making your own almond butter really helps save money.  Almond butter can really add up, sometimes one bottle is as much as $9…yikes!  This honey almond butter recipe is so good and…
