Moving To A Greener Complexion: Best Buys From The Drugstore
In my previous post on sunscreen, I noted the lack in quality beauty buys available at the drugstore. Well, that post prompted a little research on my end. Fueled by a determination to find a few non-toxic products, I clicked through to the ones that deliver good results.
Here, 5 Natural Beauty Buys From The Drugstore:
Let’s start where my sunscreen post ended — with Coola. I found¬†it on drugstore.com, and saved a couple bucks by buying two tubes. We’ve been wearing this for weeks… it is by far the easiest / best sunscreen for our family.
When my¬†move to a greener complexion commenced, this was one of my first buys.¬†Burt’s Bees is one of those brands that is widely accessible and ingredient conscious. The tinted lip balm is the bomb. I use it every day.
Nail polish isn’t exactly a non-toxic product in itself, but there are many brands going 5 Free which leaves out the super nasty stuff. Nonie Creme’s Colour Prevails is doing just that. Plus she came up¬†with this high tech handle to help with application… perfect for little hands (like GLs) to get their pretty polish on.
DH was ahead of me on this one. After a trip to SF he came back a Dr. Bronner’s convert. Liquid soap isn’t really my thing, however, these¬†bottles, last forever–they’re huge!
In the summer, I tend to tone down my make up routine, but all the sunscreen can lead to a shiny face. Although I have not yet tried this powder,¬†the EWG¬†says it is¬†clean declaring it a definite must buy in my book.
