Okay….What you’ve been waiting for!! My favourite organic and toxic free body creams and hair care, toxic free make-up brands and removers and organic self tanners.
All I can say is “Yarok” rocks!!
I have tried pretty much all their hair products and I am soooo in lurve! I am not a big hair girl. I wash, treat and straighten my hair. My hair is chemically lightened and prone to frizziness. As my hair is frizzy, I aim for a smooth, free-falling feeling, preferring to steer clear from beach type products. I get enough of that if I leave my hair be!
Well… Yarok’s “Feed your volume” shampoo and conditioner are such lovely products to use. Unlike other silicon free, natural based shampoos, Yarok’s version feels like your hair has truly been fed! Your hair feels soft and silky! The cleanse is a great one too. No residue left behind.
Their “Feed your Ends” leave-in conditioner……Wow! Love it! So light, yet so nurturing! I apply this before drying my hair and then once I have straightened I add a few drops of “Feed your Shine” as a serum. Yum!
“Feed your Roots” mousse is great for getting that lift in your volume when you feel like a little oomphhh!
And “Feed your Youth” is a lovely oil based treatment oil that stimulates your scalp and hair to retain, as it says, the youth of your hair! Just be careful to wash out well as it can leave oily hair if you don’t.
And Yarok’s products seem to work best when styled.
All of Yarok’s products can be found online in Australia at www.nourishedlife.com.au
My favourite bath soak is from Perfect Potion. Detox Bath Soak. Double Yum! What a luxurious way to detox! Some Queen B beeswax candles to detox the air around you, some music…maybe a book… Need I say any more!
Make your own! So easy! Sugar, salt, lemon juice, honey, coconut oil. Here’s a link to my yummy recipe.
Coconut Oil….Coconut Oil…Coconut Oil!!! Nature’s little secret!!! It is a moisturizer.. an antibiotic… a multivitamin…. a multi-nutrient, boosting, nourishing, anti-aging, anti wrinkle and anti-oxidant lotion…. An all in one skin cream! And if you buy raw, virgin, organic coconut oil then, it’s super healthy too! Pure coconut oil will not clog your pores. Cheaper versions will.
For something a little richer for hands etc I love “Mokosh’s shea body butter!” So rich and luxurious, you only use sparingly, therefore one jar of this body butter will last forever!
If you don’t believe that there could be an organic, all natural, fake tan then you are not alone!! I researched long and hard before I tried “EcoTan”. And I am here to tell you that it is the real deal! The closest fake tan that you can get to nature! And it is so easy to use and the colour is great! When used properly, I found none of the streaking that I have found with other well known versions!
TOXIC FREE MAKE-UP AND REMOVER
I am not a huge make up wearer so this an area I am still researching. What I can tell you though is Lavera and Zuii are fabulous toxic free make up brands. Their lippies are DIVINE!!!! I am especially in lurve with Lavera.
For a make up remover, I love “Mokosh’s Organic Makeup Remover“.
For make up, head straight to the experts! Three fabulous Australian online stores that stock only toxic free make up that works! These stores and their creators are inspirational people. I am sooo proud to be able to share them with you.
