So my paraben-free mission continues. Remember this post? It's been a while, but I've updated some of the products I use and thought I'd share.
First up is the Yes To Tomatoes Blemish Clearing Towelettes. Why you ask? Because for some hairball reason my forehead has decided to hark back to my teenage years and break out every so slighty. I blame it on the warm weather (causing sweating) and my bangs which I am now growing out.
Speaking of sweating ... last time I tried out the Tom's of Maine deodorant but it didn't quite work for me. So I went on the hunt again for an aluminum-free deodorant and it was suggested that I try Crystal Body Deodorant Spray. And guess what? I love it! Now, it doesn't last forever so I do have to keep it in my bag for the occasional re-spray (max. twice a day) but it feels so refreshing and natural (and worth getting away from that aluminum!). Will be great for summer!
I was inspired to try coconut oil from this post. So now we use it in our smoothies along with my trusty Zico (natural flavor)–great for the kids too! I've also been adding coconut oil to my afternoon tea as well thanks to some encouragement from Carrie. I've yet to try it in my beloved coffee. Has anyone ever used in coffee yet?
With the weather warming up I was eager to find something natural for my face, that would go on well and had sun protection. Enter Josie Maran's Argan Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30. I get a moisturizer, foundation and SPF all in one. I'm very happy about that. And so is my pocketbook.
What about you guys? Any new, natural products you're using that you'd like to share? I love to hear.
P.S. Don't forget Alexis's Simplicity Parenting book discussion starts today. Each day a different chapter will be discussed. I will be co-hosting a discussion on the "Rhythm" chapter this Thursday. Join us!
