My Favorite Natural and Ethical Beauty Products that Work

5 Beauty Products to Try

BURT’S BEES Skin Nourishment Night Cream

It could be just me, but as I get older, my love and need for beauty products has increased. Not for purely vanity purposes, but because they make me feel good about myself. However, I do not want to put foreign chemicals that can cause more harm than good on my face. My skin is too sensitive and I do not feel the need to harm animals nor increase my chances of getting some sort of disease or illness for beauty. I am always on the hunt for natural beauty products and these are my go-to top 5 right now.

Burt’s Bees

Who They Are

You probably have heard about Burt’s Bees or have even purchased a product or two. This company has been around for a couple of decades on the mass market. Their products are made from natural ingredients with ethical practices…even the packaging is sustainable.

Why I Love It

I have been purchasing their lip balm for a number of years now and it is one of the best lip care balms on the market. The tinted lip balm is even better with a variety of natural colors for a simple day look. All of the skin care products I have used from Burt’s Bees are light with a natural feel and always leave my skin looking and feeling soft and radiant.

“Our ingredients—right down to the packaging—are simple, natural, and responsible. We practice what we preach—and we hope to set the example for others to follow.

It’s called The Greater Good. And it’s how we’re going to help change the world”.

Native Deodorant

Who They Are

An aluminum-free and paraben-free deodorant for women and men. Made of all natural ingredients with a few scented options such as lavender and rose (the scent I use), coconut and vanilla or unscented. All deodorants are Made in the USA.

Why I Love It

It’s natural, made in the USA and it feels as if I am not wearing anything. What surprised me the most was that it was so easy to wash off. Most importantly, it works!

“Leading antiperspirants contain aluminum, which is linked to breast cancer and Alzheimer’s. Native Deodorant is aluminum-free and paraben-free”.


 Shea Moisture

Who They Are

“We are natural, organic, sustainably-produced goodness. Made with love for you and your body. Pioneering fair trade through Community Commerce at home and abroad. We strive to be sulfate free, paraben free and more, whenever possible. Tested on our family for four generations. Never on animals”.

Why I Love It

The main product I use from Shea Moisture is their African Black Soap Clarifying Mud Mask. When I notice my face breaking out a bit more or if it’s a bit dull, I apply a layer of the mud mask on my face and apply extra over the blemished spots. It leaves an invigorating feeling, brightens my face and reduces redness along with decreasing the appearance of blemishes.

Andalou Naturals

Who They Are

An all natural beauty line believing beauty is you. They are the first beauty brand to achieve 100% Non-GMO Project Verification on all of their products. Today, they are the #1 natural skin care brand on the market.

Why I Love It

I have been using the Polished to Perfection – Konjac Facial Sponge Duo and the natural exfoliation from the sponges leaves my skin silky-smooth. The anti-aging sponge has helped decrease the appearance of those laugh lines around my eyes. The green tea sponge definitely illuminates my face making me feel energized and younger.

Who They Are

Why I Love IT

I had been on a shampoo and conditioner hunt for a few months since my hair had become dry, hard and flat. Initially, I thought, “shampoo with essential oils, it’s just going to leave my hair oily and stringy”. The opposite has happened. My hair is soft, the color is as bright as the first day of my treatment and my hair is actually easier to style.

I am a huge advocate of telling women and especially young girls that beauty is not the most important component of who they are. However, I still love to feel beautiful and look as if I am not aging.

There will always be a need to find the best natural beauty products that are right for me and I encourage you to find your own and experiment with them. You will be surprised by the results and notice that they are as good as your department store non-natural products.
