Hi, friends! Today I have a new mini series to share with you. I have been wanting to share my healthy deodorant for, like, six months. But it always felt like kind of a random thing to post about. But sharing products I truly love and use IS RANDOM. So today I am kicking off a small series of posts about the beauty products I use and love. Since I last posted about my routine (a few years ago?), I have changed out almost every product for something with less chemicals. I spent the last six months really cleaning up my beauty, bath and household products. And although it’s not perfect (it never is), I am really proud of the HUGE amount of unnecessary, harmful chemicals that I cut out.
Anyway! Here are three products I am using daily (or regularly) and loving!
The Healthy Deodorant I love this stuff. I have tried at LEAST a dozen brands in the past that did not work (sometimes it felt like I wasn’t even wearing deodorant it was so bad). This stuff works, it smells good, and Jeremy and I both love it. We’ve been using it for about six months, and I can now say it’s good enough for summer weather and fitness as well. It’s less strong than something you’d buy at the drugstore, but BY FAR the best aluminum free option I’ve ever found. It comes in different scents, but I like “Sport Luxe”.
Acure Cell Stimulating Facial Mask A classic green mask that doesn’t dry your skin out. This one is new to me, and I love it!
Here’s what it looks like on your skin–
Ew gross! (Kidding – I love this kind of stuff!!)
Herbivore Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist I love it when I find a brand that I trust and end up loving ALL their products. Herbivore is that brand for me. I initially discovered them through Moorea Seal, and now I have a massive collection and am a certified fan girl.
Anyway – about the face mist! Once you get into the routine of using a face mist (I use it when I wash or rinse my face, morning and night), it’s kind of addicting. It makes me feel more awake in the mornings and ready for bed at night. Routines, man! So good.
Alright!! I hope you enjoyed my randomness. Please do let me know if you try any of these products and what you think. Also, if you have suggestions of products you love (whether for beauty, bath or home cleaning), I am very interested and would love to hear them! xx- Elsie

I love The Healthy Deodorant! I’ve been using it for a while now and preach it to everyone I know! Iuse the lavender vanilla one. It smells so good and fresh.
My old roommate switched to natural products years ago and deodorant was the thing she struggled with finding! I’ll have to try this and see if she has!

I love using a mist on my face, especially during these hot days of summer. The HERBIVORE Rose Hibiscus sounds like a great product! My favourites at the moment are Caudalie Grape Water and Avene Thermal Spring Water.

I just ordered some Piper Wai deodorant to try. This one looks awesome too! I usually make deodorant using a recipe I found on Oh Dear Drea and it’s amazing but it gets too melty when I travel so I need a back up.
Do you have a natural shampoo and conditioner that you use? That’s what I’m having the most trouble finding.
I’d love to try the face mask!
Within the last month I discovered that Acure mask and I LOVE it! The smell of it is really calming and peaceful to me for some reason, and I usually use it on my face after using a scrub, so the whole process feels like an awesome mini-facial. I tried one flop of a natural deodorant in the past, so thanks for the recommendation on this one, I will be trying it out!
Yay! So excited for this series! I just switched to all natural products over the past few months and I’m always looking for honest reviews from people I trust. I actually just shared some of my fave products on my blog too: http://www.sunshineandwhimsy.net/2016/06/my-16-favourite-natural-skincare.html
Have you tried a crystal deodorant? I buy it from a health food store. You have to run it under water before using it but I love it.
I use the environmental working group’s “skin deep” database to research most my products and they do a great job.
my current green beauty and body obsessions: dr bronner’s bar soaps (peppermint wakes me up!), acure facial cleansing cream, dry brushing before showering then using a japanese salux wash cloth that is the absolute best for exfoliating then slathering up with coconut oil, bite beauty lipsticks, priti nyc nail polish remover, w3ll people make up (foundation stick and highlighter stick), cerave facial sunscreen (one of the few barrier (not chemical) facial sunscreens that spreads easily, sinks in fast and doesn’t leave a white wash.
for home, i’m die-hard for Ecover products especially their stain remover (liquid with a bristle top) which works miracles, their dish soap and their laundry detergent. i also make a homemade febreeze stand-in with witch hazel and essential oils.
good for you for making small changes – they add up big time for your health and the earth over time.
I LOVE Astara Skin Care 🙂 I use the kit for dry skin 🙂 as a bonus everything smells good enough to eat 🙂
Always good to hear an enthusiastic endorsement of a product! I have been debating about carrying the facial mists in my shop. I love Herbivore’s Lapis facial oil and the bath products, but was on the fence about this one, but then again, everything looks better photographed up against a pink fluffy rug! I may have to stock it – thanks for the tip!
Love this series. Instead of overloading 10-15 products in one past once in a while, this is better, to focus on few products frequently. Looking forward to more in this series.
And gonna try that face mask sometime soon. Love it when i can but it at target.
Great product finds i have never herd of the deodorant before thanks for sharing
I use the Acure face mask. I think it smells disgusting… but it works great! >_<
I’ve been dying to try some Acure products since you posted about it on your snapchat awhile ago. Too bad I checked my local target recently and couldn’t find it anywhere. Guess I’ll have to keep looking or just order online! Thanks for such a fun post!
There’s a natural beauty store here in Georgia called Fig & Flower that has been super helpful in aiding me to make my skincare and make up routines organic. www.shopfigandflower.com
I’ve never used face mists for my routine to start a day or go to sleep, I usually just splash water on my face like the Neutrogena commercials haha! Haven’t seen at the stores, but I hope I do so I could buy one and try it out!
Nice ! I guess I’m gonna check out the deodorant !
I am definitely going to need to try that deodorant! I have been looking for a good one.
I switched from an anti perspirant to a natural deodorant from Earth Science several years ago. I love all their scents. Be aware (and patient with your body) as you ditch the chemicals that stop your body from doing its job. You will probably pour sweat as your body readjusts. It will stop after your body unclogs and you will be healthier.
I also started making my own laundry soap and toothpaste. They are so much more effective, healthier and inexpensive to make…..and kind of fun.
