Non-Toxic Beauty: What’s in My Bag Now

Late spring makes me happy. Seeing all the radiant flowers in bloom and bright colors of nature everywhere excites me for summer. It’s also a time that I revamp my beauty bag. I love buying new seasonal products. I’m outside more, so like skincare items with sun protection. Spring also reminds me to rid my everyday items and refresh with newer ones. I still use products that are largely organic, vegan and rate low in toxicity in the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database. Here’s what’s in my bag for late spring.

Non-Toxic Beauty: What's in My Bag Now

Non-Toxic Beauty: What’s in My Bag Now

Intelligent Nutrients Gloss: Pink Hibiscus

This moisturizing, organic gloss is bright, but sheer, making it a nice daytime lip color. Packed with antioxidants, this gloss can help prevent premature stress and aging.

Mineral Fusion Natural Volumizing Mascara

After trying many non-toxic brands, Mineral Fusion is still my favorite because it truly lengthens and gives the illusion of thicker lashes. During the winter or summer nights out, I wear shades of black, but during the daytime summer I like chestnut.

Zuzu Luxe Liquid Eyeliner – Raven

Liquid eyeliner is easy to apply and lasts for hours especially Gabriel Cosmetics’ Zuzu’s liquid eyeliner in Raven. Zuzu’s collection also includes festive colors. My favorite is shimmery, copper one: Luxor.

Mineral Fusion Natural Brands Mineral SPF 30 Brush On Sun Defense

I truly believe that cream sunscreen is the best sun protection. However, sometimes when in a rush, I use a mineral powder with SPF. This wand has lasted a year. It’s also easy to transport in my small purse, so that I always have some sort of SPF handy.

BeautyCounter Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen

This sunscreen is good for head to toe protection. Waterproof and easy to apply, I use this lightly scented SPF30 for the whole family.

Balanced Guru’s Scrub Me Nice and Gritty Body Scrub

I started using Balanced Guru’s body scrubs after receiving a Goodebox all-natural beauty subscription box. Made with only a handful ingredients, my face looks amazing and feels refreshed after exfoliating with it several times a week.

What are your favorite spring into summer beauty products?

  1. I love the suggestion of the sunblock you use. I use essential oil based beauty items, but they don’t have a sunblock yet! Living in the desert, sunscreen is necessary to your well being!

    • The Environmental Working Group ( just came out with their 2015 sunscreen guidelines so check out their list if you want other suggestions. I really do like Beauty Counter, but know they can be pricey. I use Babyganics sunscreen (the crayon one) for my 6-year old son.

  2. I am PRETTY SURE all of the stuff in my beauty bag is TOXIC! lol!

    • All my beauty items used to be toxic, too. Next time you are at Whole Foods, try a new gloss or mascara and see if you like it. There are a few brands sold at drug stores that are good, too. Burt’s Bees, Physicians Formula are pretty cheap and sold all over. Happy Memorial Day.

  3. I’m always on the lookout for non-toxic beauty products! This is great! I haven’t heard of a few of these products… I’ll have to investigate further!

    Thanks so much for sharing these with me.

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    • Let me know what you try and like best. If you are shopping and have questions about a specific products try downloading the Think Dirty or Skin Deep apps. They are really easy tools to scan products and get their toxicity rankings. Happy Memorial Day.

  4. I really want to try that mascara! I love all the ideas you share…we really need to do a giveaway though!
