Natural and Organic: Skincare
by
Megan McCallister

As the terms “natural” and “organic” are no longer confined to supermarket aisles eco chic beauty products are bursting on the scene, giving you the same (if not better) results than their chemically infused competition. Check below for some of the latest and greatest skincare innovations, naturally gorgeous.

 
 


Boscia- Preservative and free of radicals, Bosia is one of my personal favorite all natural skincare brands. Packed with Hydrangea Leaf to purify and refine pores and Green Tea to calm and combat free radical change, the Purifying Cleansing Gel helped calm my sensitive and blemish prone skin (cry!) within just a few days of use. Gentle enough to use both morning and night but powerful enough to remove make-up, this cleanser leaves your skin looking and feeling refreshed.

Another goodie is their Enlivening Amino AG Eye Treatment 

One pump covers the under eyes area, reducing puffiness and smoothing skin. Especially good at reviving delicate under eye skin after a late night out (ahem), I never leave home without it. I’m also really excited to try one of their travel kits. Whether you like travel minis of your favorite skin savers (love!) or want to try a new product without the full sized product price tags, these sets are the perfect way to introduce yourself to the brand. I can’t wait to get my hands on their Normal to Oily Kit, (below) to try a variety of different purse friendly products in one place. Fabulous!

  1. 1.86 oz Purifying Cleansing Gel

  2. 1.86 oz Balancing Facial Tonic

  3. 0.5 oz Oil-free Daily Hydration SPF 15

  5. 1 pack of Green Tea Blotting Linens (100 sheets)

 

Lavanila- The brains behind the brand, beauty enthusiasts Danielle Raynor and Laura DiGirolamo set out to create a luxurious and natural fragrance that wouldn’t make their allergies go haywire.  Combining natural ingredients with the delectable scent of vanilla, Lavanila was born.

 

Natural & Organic: Skincare currently featuring a variety of healthy natural products, from body butter to lip butter, candles to deodorant (new and from what I’ve heard, quite heavenly), their products not only feel amazing on your skin but are gentle and smell delightful. One of my personal favorites is the Vanilla Lip Butter. Smooth on your lips and hydrating, this butter packs SPF 8 to make sure your lips are moisturized and protected from the sun. Their body butter is also divine, best yet, I’ve even found them available in a mini tube (I told you I’m a sucker for anything travel sized!) so it makes it purse and airport friendly- fabulous.

Their biggest break thru is their healthy deodorant, formulated without all the chemicals in regular deodorant while still protecting your pits. This is also on my shopping list so I’ll let you know how it holds up. Products that smells good and are good for you? It must be natural. It must be Lavanila.
