I applaud all these brands for being non toxic. There are many excellent effective non toxic options. I love my ILIA Polka Dots + Moon Beams Illuminator (daughter, I know you took it and please return it). I have tried some of the Beautycounter products and while they all were lovely, I didn’t fall in love with any of them. That doesn’t mean you won’t like them. Not everything works on everybody. In fact I encourage you to try it and support a company that is trying to do the right thing. Please comment below with your own experiences. I gave the exfoliating pads to my teenage daughter who likes them. The eye cream made no visible difference to my dark circles or fine lines but then again nothing does except a heavy dose of extra sleep. The lightest eyeshadow duo Pearl/Champagne $34 is perfect for my pale skin, and level of pearl on par with my new favorite $6 Almay mentioned in a previous post (which a friend commented on Moodsey as being similar to her favorite and pricier Estee Lauder eyeshadow).
I will be trying another non toxic brand next. It is the new UK skincare brand The Ordinary. Their facial oils are pure ingredients nothing more. I’m excited that they are back in stock! My order is on its way and so is my Moodsey product review of them. Here is my previous post about The Ordinary $6 facial serums. I’m tempted to consider trying the new Australian brand Coast to Coast and their $65 Kakadu Plum recovery Radiance Serum with desert lime because it sounds delicious. The Australian Kakadu plum apparently has 55 times more vitamin c than a Florida orange. Does anyone squeeze orange juice onto their face? It has a long ingredient list including hyaluronic acid which I already get from my beloved brand CeraVe at CVS for $8.
I have the Think Dirty app that is free and alerts me to potentially toxic ingredients while shopping, all you do is scan bar codes. My moto: less is more. So I try to find products with the least ingredients, like The Ordinary.
