I've been using Dermalogica products for a few years now, and they're great when it comes to my skin. However, I notice that the ingredients aren't all-natural...and it's starting to become a bother. I'd like to switch over to all-natural products, and was wondering if any of you know some good brands/lines that I could try out. Collins Sensiderm cream is another product that isn't all-natural, but it works so well with my skin. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!!
Hi Maria. I love Origins products. They are all natural- no animal ingredients ever!- and smell amazing. I don't have a lot of skin issues so I don't know how they would be for finicky skin but I've been very happy with their products.
Try Sprouts skincare! I just purchased some of their trial products from their website. Everything is made from simple, sustainable ingredients that do not irritate sensitive skin (which I have) and she makes fresh batches of each product every week!! I love her stuff, check out the website, www.sproutskincare.com. Let me know how it goes!
I get a homegrown lable from my local famrers market- its usualy the best way to go-made with fruits and oils from the enviroment around us- no importing!! The other great world wide lable is Kiss My Face-youll also start to find the less shitty food you eat-the more water you drink the less forumulated your products need to be. I use all natural Witch Hazel on any zits, AND one MIRACLE product I found was Organic Virgin Olive Oil. I put it on my face as night as a anti-wrinkle cream- and all over my body . Another tip- which seriously changed my whole skin routine- is Milk Of Magnesia (Phillips bran is vegan- just check your lable of other brands- they may bedepending on whether the glycerin comes from vegetable or animal source.)I use it as a primer under my makeup (ps i am a HUGE makeup user-I have been slowly phasing out my high end brand names for more kind lables) It works better than anything I've ever paid top moola for. I am also looking for tips and tricks for a kind beauty routine! Keep my in the Loop!

I'm an adult with acne prone skin, it has not changed since my late teens. What has changed is how I go about caring for my skin now. I found the most gentle and effective product (for me, and I've tried many) is Burt's Bees new acne line. It has helped greatly in soothing any redness, keeping blemishes at bay and my skin just feels so soft now.
Try Celadon Road. All organic products, nearly all are Vegan Friendly (a few have sustainably harvested beeswax), and are completely chemical free! www.myceladonroad.com/adenniston to learn about the wonderful products.
There is a new all natural peptide line called DermaEarth. It is a results focused, naturally inspired skin care line that is free of parabens, added colors and fragrances, and any other suspect ingredients. The SugarBerry cleanser smells great and foams naturally. The other two products are Peptidal which is great and has all the key peptides, and EnLighten that is a skin lightening serum that does not have hydroquinone, kojic acid or arbutin (all 3 are banned in some countries). Additionally, the packaging is 100% recyclable (hard to do!) and of course not tested on animals. You can purchase them online at www.skincareheaven.com.
Hi Maria! I found myself in the same shoes as you! I too loved Dermalogica products, but, wanted to go all natural. My sister loves Origin and so does a few of my friends. So, about a week ago, I purchased Orgins eye cream and high potency nita-mins. Just to give it a try.) I have to say it works! I really think you will like it. It's very much like the Dermalogica line in that it is simple/basic skin care line line (if this makes sense). And if it doesn't work for you, simply return it. Good luck!
Fashion Friday: Color Block Trend
With Paris Fashion Week in full swing, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing lots of celebrities rock some fantastic new trends. But one older trend that’s still as popular as ever is color blocking! In this week’s post you’ll see some bold and bright color block styles that could flatter any figure.
Color blocking is a trend from last season’s runways and red carpets that is getting a fresh breath of life this season. Color blocking is the combination of loud, bright colors that enhances the dynamics of an outfit and can create a vibrant and more youthful look.
The most popular adaptation of this trend is to pair a brightly colored top with another brightly colored bottom to create a sharp contrast. But instead of sticking with the traditional ‘one color on top, one color on the bottom’ ethos from seasons past,this season’s color blocking is taking things one step further. Try wearing blouse with two or three vivid colors or dress with multiple blocks of color for a funky twist. To pull this look off with style and poise, stick to a maximum of three colors for a top and only one or two for a bottom piece.
If you fancy yourself a fashionable then you’re going to love our latest fashion collection! Inspired by the classic styles of the 1950s, these dresses, skirts and blouses have a certain flair that is sure to make heads turn! In this week’s post you’ll see some great vintage styles that are guaranteed to give you that classic look you’ve been craving!
American fashion in the 1950s was all ab outplaying up that feminine silhouette—full skirts, accentuated waists and demure necklines. When in doubt, remember the Three BS: bows, belts, and bold colors! Although oversized bows and skinny belts aren’t necessary for every outfit, bold colors definitely are! In this sense, ‘bold’ doesn’t have to mean ‘bright’;even black and white are colors that stand out!
And don’t be afraid to mix and match styles! If your skirt is more contemporary, try pairing it with a vintage blouse or vice avers. You can give your look a more modern twisty bringing the hemline up to your knees and pulling your hair up into a rock in’ do! Complete your look with some fabulous costume jewelry and you’re ready to go!
