As a green blogger, I am constantly testing out new products and trying new things. BUT, there are certain products I go back to again and again, products that withstand the test of time because they just work. To wit, here are the products that are currently part of my green beauty routine, as of March 2018:
Makeup Remover: Beautycounter’s Cleansing Balm; Goop by Juice Beauty’s Melting Cleanser; Sometimes if I’m feeling lazy, I’ll either use these makeup remover wipes or just this amazing microfiber cloth that removes every last trace of makeup with just water.
Facial Scrub: Acure Organics Brightening Facial Scrub; Suki Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser; I also love using this exfoliating mitt to scrub my body and face a few times a week–it’s super gentle, makes my skin beyond smooth, and doesn’t require any expensive products.

**Note: While most of my personal care/toiletry collection is full of natural, safe and non-toxic products, I’m a firm believer in balance and I’ve found that natural living doesn’t have to be all or nothing in order to have a profound impact, both on your health and the environment. And so there are a few traditional products that I’ve gone back to, even though they’re not the “greenest” or “cleanest”. My goal is to reduce my toxic load where I can, not be perfect.
