Organic Bath and Beauty Options– Part III

Tuesday, January 13th, 2009


Bath and Beauty Products.  When it comes to my face creams, soaps, face washes, lotions, shampoo and conditioner, I typically use Burt’s Bees line of products that I can easily find at Wegmans.  However, sometimes this can be costly, which is why I like shopping at Wegmans because it has entire aisle dedicated to just organic bath and beauty products at a range of prices.  If you are on a budget, Kiss My Face makes a great line of olive soaps that are natural and healthy.  If I am in a hurry and don’t have time to stop at Wegmans, I will stop at my local CVS and pick-up Burt’s Bees, because CVS carries a variety of Burt’s Bees lotions, soaps and hair products.   When selecting a face product, such as face wash or lotion, I try to select an item that has Vitamin C in it because it is a natural antioxidant.  I also like Burt’s Bees Naturally Ageless Skin Firming Night Cream and Line Smoothing Eye Cream, because both products contain Pomegranate Extract, which is also a natural antioxidant. 


Deodorant and Tooth Paste.  There has always been a big debate over deodorant and how harmful it can be; however, if you don’t use deodorant, you will find that you are quickly losing friends, because they find it hard to be around you, especially after a work-out.  Unfortunately, there aren’t too many organic deodorants that work well.  I have tried several brands that had lavender, lemon or tea tree oil in them, only to find out by the end of the day, that the product didn’t work too well.  That is why I was delighted to find a clear and odorless natural deodorant that is healthier for your body, and free of parabens.  This deodorant is called Crystal and comes in the form of a rock, roll-on, and spray.  I have tried all three forms of Crystal, and prefer either the roll-on or spray.  All three work great and last all day long.  Crystal is even strong enough for a man.  For tooth paste, I prefer Tom’s of Maine Natural Care toothpaste line.  Both Crystal Deodorant and Tom’s of Main Natural Care toothpaste can be found at your local convenience store, such as CVS, or your local grocery store, such as ShopRite or Wegmans.
