Did you know that there are over 13,000 chemicals in your cosmetics and yet only 10% is evaluated for safety. So, what does that mean for all of us?
According to Dr.Mercola,
On average we expose our skin to 168 dangerous chemicals daily, which eventually leads into the bloodstream. Overtime it will have a negative impact on our health such as, problems with infertility, premature aging, endocrine disruption, cancer and a hundred of other things! Girl….say what?!
This year I was introduced to an app called Think Dirty! It’s an unbiased product comparison app for cosmetics and personal care products. It’s the easiest way to detect the potentially toxic ingredients by simply scanning the barcode of a personal care product and finding out the product rating. As a consumer myself, let alone a skin care and makeup junkie, only recently have I started switching over to organic and natural skin care products (slowly but surely).
On today’s blog post, I’m going to share with you some products that I have been loving and they all contain natural ingredients. I’m teaming up with ThinkDirty to share with you some of our favourite brands and products.
Switch your cleansing wipes to these natural cleansing cloths. I’m being honest here, these cloths are mildly damp and not as soaked compared to your usual drugstore wipes.
However! since it contains squalane, which is a highly effective emollient and natural antioxidant – that means these cloths unlike others, is used for removing your makeup, while also conditioning your skin, lashes and brow, and locking in essential moisture (no rinsing required). Squalane is known to help prevent fine lines, and ease dry patches. Great for acne-prone or oily skin! Shop here.
Perfume for a cause anyone? Pour Le Monde creates 100% natural perfumes to benefit and increase awareness for some of the world’s most important charities, while benefiting the Cancer Support Community, so no one faces cancer alone. It smells a tad sweet with a light floral scent, give a gift for yourself or mum! Shop here.
I love this stuff! It’s my go-to holy grail at the moment. Once applied, it feels amazingly smooth and soft. It comes on as a velvety creme. It claims to lift, tone and transform the eye area. It is formulated with Paracress, Organic Brown Seaweed and Coffee Bean Extracts to smooth lines and wrinkles.
It’s great for those looking to try a natural and organic eye lotion to prevent wrinkles, puffiness, dryness and mature under eye. 100% vegan – Certified Organic Ingredients – Not tested on animals – toxic free
4. Butter Babes Dry brush I recently added a new beauty tool to my daily regime, a dry brush! It is great for exfoliation, cleans your pores, reduces cellulite and increases energy and blood flow. Cellulite is toxic materials trapped in our body’s fat cells, so don’t forget to show some love to your body on a daily.
Who knew this little guy had so many benefits for your skin and health such as helping to support your lymphatic system! Did you know…
- Lymphatic drainage is the easiest and most natural beauty regime you can do without all the work of exercise!
- Brushing the skin breaks down cellulite as it exfoliates leaving you with softer skin in days!
- Dry brushing increases the electro-magnetic energy to help you feel energized!

Smells like lemons, literally! This natural deodorant that does it all, powerfully protects against odor with its fresh and uplifting scent, while nourishing even the most sensitive skin. Contains other good-for-you organic ingredients including grass-fed tallow, fair trade coconut oil, arrowroot powder, beeswax and essential oils.
I recommend people swapping their old deodorants for these all natural ones, as it is not harmful to your skin and the smell… oh gosh, (lemon, lemon, lemon)!
6. William Roam Sense
The body gel and body lotion smells so pure and natural, and I can truly say this is the BEST body care I own! I can immediately tell the difference in the texture of my skin once I shower with the shower gel and apply their body lotion. Superior hydration!
