Au Naturale

A few weeks ago, My Glamomama buddy Amanda Griffin-Jacob shared some amazing health and beauty tips and ever since then I’ve been motivated to jumpstart a more natural beauty regimen too. I wanted to be as fresh and flawless as Amanda so I trekked to the nearest Healthy Options store and raided their beauty aisles. Of all the beauty treats I tried, these are my top 5 tried and tested beauty products! They’re very reasonably priced and perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin (like mine!).

ANDALOU NATURALS CLEANSING CREAM
“Advanced Fruit Stem Cells and creamy emollients, rich in enzymes and potent antioxidants, gently diffuse, creating a velvety lather to lift away impurities, as rejuvenating Meyer lemon stimulates circulation for improved tone and texture.”
This cleanser is very gentle and light. It’s perfect as a morning cleanser! The burst of lemon immediately gives you that summery glow!

DERMA E HYALURONIC LIP REPAIR CRÈME
“Key ingredient: Hyaluronic Acid. Products containing this “moisture magnet” are perfect for rehydrating dry skin. Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water and has the amazing ability to bind moisture to tissue to soften, smooth, tone and rehydrate your skin.”
My lips tend to chap under harsh weather conditions so I’ve been hunting for the perfect lip treatment. This glides smoothly on your lips without that greasy feel. Patrick loves it because it makes my lips extra kissable..naks!! Ok, too much information! Hahahaha 🙂

EARTH SCIENCE GENTLE SKIN PEEL
“A completely non-chemical herbal peel scientifically formulated with natural ingredients to eliminate impurities. Skin will feel softer and smoother after this incredible seven-minute beauty treatment mask. Papaya enzymes safely remove dead skin cells on the skin surface to leave your complexion fresh and glowing. Alpha hydroxy acids help soften the appearance of small lines and wrinkles. Chemical-free and safe for regular use, this formula contains herbal skin soothers to prevent irritation.”
I tried a chemical peel at a top clinic a few months ago and it was so expensive and caused even more problems for my sensitive skin. It’s always good to use natural products on your face!

NATURE’S GATE ACNE SPOT CORRECTOR
“Acne will finally be a thing of the past thanks to this gentle, effective spot treatment lotion. Formulated with the revolutionary Oligopeptide-10 and an intensified level of salicylic acid, this proven and convenient acne treatment starts working on contact to help create healthy-looking skin and a clear complexion.”
This spot corrector delivers great results. A little dot goes a long way! It doesn’t burn the acne, it’s extremely gentle and doesn’t leave any dark marks.

NATURE’S GATE LOTION COLLOIDAL OATML
“Nature’s Gate Colloidal Oatmeal Lotion is rich with natural, skin-calming ingredients that gently moisturize and help nourish dry, itchy skin. Colloidal Oatmeal, known for its soothing properties, is blended with moisturizing Canola Gel, botanical extracts and vitamins to help keep skin soft and supple.
If you’re getting ready for the beach, it’s important to moisturize all over! Your skin will be your best and sexiest asset. This lotion is perfect for those with itchy, dry and sensitive skin.
