Recently I was having a random conversation with a few of my friends and the topic of natural products came up. Now let me just start by saying I understand the importance of using natural products but I am in every way guilty of using products that are far from being organic. But hey don't we all have our favorite body and skin product lines that we cannot give up. From that conversation I learned that many or should I say all of the products that I use all have a type of paraben made inside of them. The most common parabens are methylparaben, ethylparaben and isobutylparaben which are found in almost all cosmetics. These active ingredients in my opinion aren't good for the skin and are known to cause cancer and fertility issues and being that our bodies fight off bacteria naturally, I decided not to mix the business with pleasure as far as my skin goes.

So after this conversion I went home and threw away all of my body products that contained any one of these parabens. ( a little dramatic right? I know). So here are a few of my newfound body products that I have a new profound love for.

Thai Deodorant: let me just say no white mess, no chemicals and is very long lasting. this deodorant is crystal based and goes in easy after being wet. Just a heads up this deodorant is scentless so if you want some sort of scent then i recommend spraying a little perfume around your underarm. Find deodorant here

Skin Buttr: omgg! let me just say I found this brand on Instagram one day and since I ordered from this company this stuff has done nothing but wonders. Great for my melanin skin and let me just say all of this stuff smells absolutely amazing. just an fyi: my favorite scents are the Strawberry Coconut Buttr and both the Ginger Lemon scrub and Buttr. Love love love this brand! link to site here

African Shea Butter: this body butter is so hydrating for my skin. I've been using it for a months now and when i say my skin is so soft after applying this to my skin i literally lay in bed and rub my legs against one another just to feel the after effects of this product. Find similar here or you can find it at your nearest beauty supply store.

Skin Laundry: My skin routine is pretty simple, cleanse, exfoliate, toner, and moisturizer. I use the gentle foaming face wash from this brand as well as the balancing anti oxidant toner. This product is really good due to the fact that when washing my face it does not soak up all of the moisture like may other skin care products do and on top of that it is long lasting since you really do not need to use too much to wash your face. I purchased this from Sephora and guess what they both are only $20 each.

Let me just end this by saying I am no expert when is comes to health and beauty stuff but trust when I say these body products are definitely worth every penny. Although I am not against chemically induced products I would say that I try not to use them as often.

Let me know what you think of the products I use and I would love to hear from you about your favorite products. See you later.
