Skin Care & Beauty Products 2015

This list has been updated for 2016!! See the new list HERE!

makeup_brushesSince the allergy testing I decided I would pick products, and stick with them for at least a month. It can be super overwhelming picking your beauty products. The advertising is intense- offering to solve your every problem…. but how about a product not full of harmful chemicals, that I won’t be allergic to??

So here is my current list. Yes, it’s short and sweet. Less variable, less chance for disaster! If all goes well with these items, I may add 1-2 new items a month. But so far I’m very happy with this list šŸ™‚

Hair & Body

Body Lotion: Aveeno Skin Relief 24 Hr Lotion

Face Lotion: same as body OR occasionally coconut oil

Soap: homemade by my mother (Leaning Ladder Farm)

Shampoo: Baking soda (no poo) OR Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Shampoo (mostly baking soda, shampoo once a month or less. Mostly for hairdresser’s use)

Conditioner: Shea Moisture Raw Shea Restorative Conditioner 

Styling Product: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie & DevaCurl Mist-er Right


Foundation: Honeybee Gardens Pressed Foundation

Blush: Bare Minerals Blush

Mascara: Honeybee Gardens mascara (LOVE this stuff!!)

Lips: Honeybee Garden Natural Lipstick OR Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (If I ignore the “natural flavor” ingredient in Burt’s Bees, I’ve not had problems with it… but technically that’s not on my safe list!)


Laundry Soap: Seventh Generation 4x Ultra Consentrated Free & Clear

Fabric Softener: Seventh Generation Free & Clear (I don’t use fabric softener, but use this to make my own drier sheets.)

Dish Soap: Seventh Generation Free & Clear

Dishwasher: Homemade OR Palmolive ECO (We are still working to find something we like. We have harder water, so it’s a challenge to find a soap that works well.)

Hand Soap: Seventh Generation Hand Wash
