Strong Scent, Fights Frizz
While initially I loved the strong scent of this oil, after about 15 minutes I got a bad allergy headache--so you may want to pass on this if you have fragrance sensitivities. That said, this product does deliver on the promise of great shine, smoothing frizz and feels light in the hair.

Great intensity and color selection--eye make-up remover is a must!
I've recently discovered the allure of the eye pencil, so I was very happy to discover these natural eyeliners by Korres. They have a nice soft lead, sharpen easily, create intense lines and come in an array of gorgeous colors. Their staying power is their only downside, I've had my liner transfer to my browbone a couple times, and also it is impossible to get these off without eye makeup remover--so if you're traveling remember to pack it! Overall, they are my favorite natural pencils because they deliver such intense color and are so gentle on the eyelid. I have: Green--metallic forest green Black and soft black--rich black Metallic brown--a soft mauve-brown metallic Petrol blue--shimmering peacock blue Blue Black--Intense navy Grey--soft metallic gray Gold--true shimmering gold These are a pretty average price ($15) and often can be found in discount sets on Sephora and Korres.

My favorite mascara
This is my favorite mascara right now. It really curls and sets my lashes and gives them great length and volume. It contains natural ingredients that do not irritate my eyes like some natural products have in the past. Be sure to try the colors besides black they are subtle and natural, yet fun!

Natural colors and great scent!
I love these glosses--they provide great sheen and come in a range of natural colors. They are definitely something that is good to try on in person: "nude," for instance, looks like a brown-orange color in the tube, but on the lips it turns a shimmery warm nude. I also have plum, a highly-pigmented berry; light pink, a sheer baby pink; light purple, a cool sheer light mauve; and fuschia, a sheer sparkly hot pink. You can't go wrong with the lovely cherry scent, and natural moisturizing ingredients!

Versatile, Affordable Lip balm
These balms leave a nice flush of shimmery color on your lips. Very moisturizing and easy to tote around and apply without a mirror. Also they don't contain any harsh chemical ingredients. Nice for summer or a low maintenance look. Lasting, natural color and great value.

Beautiful Scent, Great Conditioner
This natural conditioner is great at hydrating my curly hair without any questionable ingredients. It is very rich, a little goes a long way. It has a true gardenia scent, but it is very natural and does not give me a headache like the majority of white flower fragrances. Oh, and my boyfriend can't stop smelling my hair when I use this!

Great lip balm with sheer to intense colors
Light and compact packaging make this highly portable. Pleasant minty fragrance and tingly sensation when it is applied. Great range of of shimmering colors ranging from shimmery, almost transparent Champagne to much more densely pigmented Merlot. These make a great, inexpensive and evironmentally-friendly alternative to plain lipbalm, lip gloss and even lipstick.

Sheer, feather-light color
Great, natural lipsticks that feel super light on. Moisturizing formula makes lips look dewy. Nice, solid packaging. I agree that some colors can look a bit off, and can be a bit costly, but overall I would say it would be a mistake to pass these up. Paraben free.

Smells great, but hard to rinse out of hair
Both this shampoo and conditioner smell heavenly, similar to the Origins ginger line. This is a thinner conditioner, about the consistency of body lotion. I had a good deal of difficulty rinsing this out of my dry curly hair, however, and ended up with limp strands. I am now enjoying the smell by using the conditioner as a shaving cream, and it works great for that! Sulfate, Paraben and Cruelty free.

Natural Color that Pops
I've been wearing this polish for two weeks, including gardening and lots of typing, and the chipping is minimal. Colors are bright but tastfeul and come out pretty much how they appear in the bottle. Easy application with rubbery, grooved handle and luxe packaging. Free of most harmful ingredients, although definitely still has the nail polish smell so ventilation my be necessary. Overall a great polish!
