  • Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara

    Revlon Beyond Natural Defining Mascara

    One of the best "natural" mascaras out there

    I picked this mascara up only because it was free of parabens, sulfates, & bismuth (which every mascara seemes to contain)and was pleasantly surprised. I always have to wipe off the brush alot because it's prone to clumping/globbing, but I started using another wand & like the results. I'll probably use this until I find something better, but with all of the natural mascaras I've already tried I doubt I'll find one.

    Wen Cucumber Aloe Cleansing Conditioner

    Love at first wash, but then not so much.....

    The first time I used this I couldn't believe how great my hair looked & felt, but with repeated usage my locks started started to feel more weighed down. I guess if you use more product this won't happen, but for the price I don't feel like using 20 pumps for each shampoo.

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
    8.0

    Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    One of the best eye primers on the market

    This stuff works great, and if I didn't care about using all natural ingredients I'd give it a 10. If it came without parabens, etc. I'd be totally in love.

  • Dr. Bronner's Organic Baby Mild Liquid Soap

    I don't use this as a body wash, but instead found it to be a great product to clean my makeup brushes with. It's natural, but takes out all of the gunk without stripping the brushes. Great stuff!

  • Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo
    5.0

    Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo

    Not really a "natural" shampoo

    This definitely isn't one of the most "green" products on the list. The shampoo worked okay, but it was loaded w/chemicals like parabens, cones, etc. & it still foamed up way too much for a sulfate free poo. Like other Purelogy products it is good for color-treated hair, but also has a strong fragrance. Not the best choice for someone seeking an all-natural shampoo & somewhat overpriced for everyone else.

  • 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream
    7.0

    100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream

    A decent all-natural eye cream to try

    I mainly picked this up because I heard it was one of the best all-natural organic eye creams on the market. The pros are that it's a moisturizing yet not too heavy eye cream that has some nice temporary firming effects (caffeine)but the cons are that it didn't really help my dark circles or puffiness after months of usage. I wouldn't mind the price tag if it worked a little better, but I'll probably continue using it until I find a better all-natural alternative.

    Vaseline Petroleum Jelly Original

    An oldie but goodie!

    I have been practically living on this stuff since being sick for months. You know when you blow your nose so much that your whole face feels raw, and putting regular cream on just won't cut it? That's when I turn to this stuff because it instantly soothes my dry patches & even doubles as a great lip balm. This is a staple to anyone's medicine cabinet! Now if only they made a stick version.....

  • Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray
    6.0

    Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray

    Not the best, but not the worst......

    I was so excited to try this easier spray version of the original dry shampoo, but it didn't really live up to my expectations. Even though the product may be good, I didn't really get a chance to experience it because it ran out so quickly whereas the powder form lasted longer. Second, the price isn't that great either judging that you're basically paying $21 for a fragranced baby powder spray. This would work for a quick touch up for semi oily roots on a summer day, but I wouldn't substitute it for a shampoo.

  • bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    Sensitive skin be wary........

    The BE foundations may have great coverage, and their other items have a great color selection, but if you have sensitive skin you may want to avoid these products. One of the ingredients included in most of their products is bismuth, which can cause an allergic reaction in some people whether it be itchiness, blotchiness, irritation, and other types of skin problems. (This is what happened to me) I've also heard that others who have combo/acne/problem skin experienced more breakouts, and especially the dreaded cystic acne. On the other hand, this works great for some people, but I think that if you have sensitive/problematic skin that you should proceed with caution.
