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 May 2018:
I also use my DIY Makeup Remover every day to remove eye makeup.
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.
