I've been slowly switching over to natural beauty products for nearly a year now, so I thought it was time to share my top favorites in hopes that you might find a new favorite too!
I used to assume the labels "natural" and "organic" were just code names for a marketing campaign for products that weren't actually all that different from everything else on the market. And while in some cases that's kind of true (the meaning of "natural" isn't very well regulated and is often misleading), I'm on board with companies producing products that will benefit my health rather than harm it.
1. Herbivore Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist - this face mist is so refreshing!
I received it in one of the very first subscription boxes from the Oui Fresh Natural Beauty Box.
I spray it on my face right before I cozy up in bed at night. It's the perfect scent to help you relax and feel pampered.
And if I need a little wake me up in the morning, I'll spray it on before applying my makeup or to set my makeup after applying.
This was my first time trying a balm consistency as a moisturizer. It ended up being the perfect product for winter here in Louisville.
I'd like to add that my skin isn't really in the dry category normally, so if you're normal to oily like me, it could still work great for your skin. I love waking up the next morning to glowing skin, which is what you can expect with this product.
I haven't tried this method, but Leahlani's website mentions you can also use this as a cleanser.
Did I mention it smells like Hawaii? Yep. It also lasted me about 4 months, so I'm pleased!
3. RMS "Un" Cover-Up - My favorite thing about this product is how it so seamlessly melts into your skin, much like the RMS Lip2Cheek. I actually just ran out, which is why the product is only pictured at the beginning of this post and the lid is on!
It's buildable but doesn't feel heavy on the skin. You can also use it as a foundation (although I'd get a shade or two darker for that purpose), which is something I'm interested in trying.
4. RMS Lip2Cheek in Demure (pictured above) - if I could only take a few beauty products with me on a trip, this would definitely be in the top 3.
I love how it melts into the skin so that you really can't tell you're wearing anything at all. It's great as a creme blush and lip color!
It's the perfect naturally subtle pink that helps your face brighten up.
5. Oui Fresh As If Lipstick - if you're noticing a lot of Oui Fresh products, it's because they're some of the best I've tried!
This shade shows up more red than pink for me, but the product page has examples of how it looks with different skin tones.
The A Beautiful Mess blog (the sister company to Oui Fresh) has a lot of helpful natural beauty and clean living blog posts if you're interested in learning more about their products and resources!
