One of the most frequent questions asked by readers and by clients is, “What products are actually in your bathroom?” Here’s what I’m using at the moment:
Body Soap: Tandi’s Naturals Patchouli Citrus Soap–I’ve always hated patchouli, but I weirdly can’t get enough of the smell of this soap. We cycle through Tandi’s collection, and I honestly like them all.
Face Cleanser: Pangea Organics Egyptian Calendula & Blood Orange facial cleanser for dry skin. It’s super moisturizing and doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight, but my face still feels really clean when I’m done washing it.
Eye Cream: Aloe-E by Sierra Sage. I also use this skin repair salve on my entire face when I feel extra parched.
Nighttime Face Cream: Ultra-Rich Face & Body Butter by Tandi’s Naturals. I thought this was greasy when I first tried it, but now I love it. Incredibly, rubbing what feels like oil on my skin doesn’t result in breakouts. Instead, I wake up to skin that looks clear and hydrated.
Sunscreen: Kabana Green Screen D SPF 35. I’m not a big sunscreen person unless I’ll be out all day, and I love that this formula has added vitamin D. I don’t even mind that it goes on a little white, in fact there are some benefits to opaque sunscreen.
Mascara: Nvey Eco organic mascara in black. One of the few mascaras to get only a 1 on Skin Deep’s cosmetics database.
Blush: Ecco-Bella Botanicals. This isn’t exactly Sneaky Stuff, but it’s probably not the safest either. When it runs out I’ll look for a cleaner option.
Tinted Lip Gloss: Neutrogena MoistureShine. Again, I’m being honest here. This is totally toxic, full of parabens and phthalates. And I end up eating a ton of it I’m sure. Good thing I only wear it about twice a year.
Lip Balm: Tandi’s Naturals Herb Garden. This actually serves as a pretty good gloss over lipstick. It cures my chapped lips super quickly.
Toothpaste: Tate’s, which I recently discovered in the health food store. Sometimes I use just baking soda, which is what my holistic dentist recommends.
