I am always on the hunt for better, less toxic beauty and personal care products that work. This is the latest list of things I love. My friend Nicki recently spent the night and verified these products as “girlfriend sharing” worthy. It was evident that I had some winners when she placed an order to 100% Pure and Josie Maran before even leaving my house.

I use a lot of products from Alba Botanica. They are free of parabens, phthalates and the company does not perform animal testing. They did not score the lowest that one can score on the toxicity scale at https://www.ewg.org/skindeep/ but mainly because there is information missing.
Alba Botanica (TIP: search for these products at a discounted price at Marshall’s, TJ Maxx etc.) http://www.albabotanica.com/
Shampoo – I love all of the various scents but I mostly use mango or coconut milk
Facewash –coconut milk

Organic Cucumber Juice moisturizer –THE BEST MOISURIZER EVER! Smells like fresh cucumbers and makes your skin feel hydrated and smooth.
