Although my foray into natural makeup has been fairly minimal, I couldn't depart from a week of organic themed posts without mentioning one of my favourite ever makeup products (and in that I'm including both conventional and natural brands).
I may have spent a whole week rabbiting on about just how good 'cleaner' beauty products can be, but I've neglected to mention one caveat: they can be rather tricky to get your hands on. Unless you have an amazingly well-stocked local health food shop, it's much easier to look online. Here are my top destinations for a little natural-themed beauty splurge.
Soapwalla Deodorant Cream
When I was last talking pits and shifting some of my beauty routine over to 'clean' products, one name popped up time and time again - Soapwalla. Apparently hugely popular with natural beauty fans, their products are still handmade in New York. Thankfully I didn't have to travel that far to find this little pot of magic (although I certainly wouldn't have minded that trip at all); I bought mine from Content Beauty in London. While I was there the sales assistant told me she was a fan too and Content know their natural products, so I had particularly high hopes.
John Masters Organics Bare
I featured John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Shampoo and Detangler briefly in '10 Organic Brands to Know' as a more natural alternative to Philip Kingsley's No Scent No Colour range, but as they're all I've used for the last month or so, and the best products I've found in my foray into natural haircare, I thought they deserved a bit more airtime.
During the summer I noticed my brows were looking a little patchy and my eyelashes felt parched. While it's a tiny problem, even the best mascara struggles with lashes that are brittle and the most deft hand with an eyebrow pencil can't quite replicate a naturally full brow. However I wasn't quite ready to turn to the lash serums that are invariably expensive and packed with bizarre sounding ingredients.
