I am finding it quite difficult to find beauty products that arent full of chemicals and arent tested on animals.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Im also on quite a tight budget, but dont mind paying that little extra for these qualities.
Organic Surge - just under a tenner for face wash.
Against animal testing, smells great, and is 70% organic
Amie cosmetics are great too. I think they're a bit cheaper
Thank you Molly for these recommendations.
I will give them a go!
Hi,I have developed an all natural body care range with NO chemicals- so many of these so called natural products have "natural aromas" which are actually concoctions of loads of chemicals. Even something termed organic can have these in. Look out for phenoxyethanol as well- check out the You tube video on what it does to fish !! My website is www.alisonclairenaturalbeauty.com
Thankyou Alison. I will definately have a look!
Well really it is too much difficult to find those products which have no side effect. I remember that last few days I was using a face wash and after using it regularly for a week i feel skin infection because of it. Then I have to go to a skin doctore who prescribed me some tablets and then now I am fine. So I am also too much afraid of it.
What about the Body Shop? I have used many of their ranges and love them, especially the Vitamin E range. There are often 30-40% discount codes on the internet so you can save a fair bit using those.
Thank you for the ideas. For the past month or so I've been using bicarbonate of soda mixed with water for shampoo, cider vinegar mixed with water for conditioner and olive oil for moisturiser.
All my skin problems now seem to be under control and saved money. Not bad going..
I have used just about every brand going for my sensitive, redness-prone skin. Products I wish I had discovered years ago are Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser (their other products haven't really worked for me though), argan oil (I get Billy In The Tree one from Amazon) and Elemis Camelia oil for dry skin days, Egyptian magic and GlamGlow mask. These are just about the only products that do what it says in the tin but don't irritate. Still looking for the perfect foundation though, for good coverage on red areas but not chalky like a mask. So far I have tried Lancome (irritates my skin badly), Armani (good but too shiny), Laura Mercier (looked very fake), Bobbi Brown (nice but not enough coverage), Vichy Dermablend (cakes badly after a few hours), Estee Lauder (turned fake and orangey after a while).... - Any ideas anyone...?
I swear by L'Occitane. It's not cheap but worth every penny in my opinion.
Annika - have you tried any of the mineral powder foundations available? Une do a good one. Good luck with your search.
Why don't you try the natural home remedies? because they are 100% chemical free. Todays there are thousands of products and its very hard to choose the right one. So I think don't use any beautyproduct on you skin.
