Anyone try any of these brands listed? 


All-natural beauty products are great, but if they don't work, they don't get used. Luckily, as an increasing number of formulas are proving, you can get both results and healthy ingredients. The above products perform well and boast a long list of organic components. They're also free of parabens, sulfates, and petrochemicals, are mostly vegan, and pack good-for-you ingredients like natural oils, fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. In this case being natural isn't a sacrifice, it's a no-brainer!

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 ($32)
Josie Maran's SPF-packed lotion is full of organic argan, pomegranate, and jojoba oils, and smells like apricot instead of sunscreen. It's chemical free and soaks in without feeling greasy.

Nourish Organic Body Wash ($10) in Almond Vanilla
This body wash is 100 percent USDA-certified organic, vegan, chemical, and gluten free. Plus, it has a delicious vanilla almond scent and creamy lather.

Lush Fresh Face Masks ($7) in Oatfix and Catastrophe Cosmetic
Not only are these masks incredibly pure—made mostly from fresh fruits and vegetables, clay, essential oils, and herbs—they're so fresh they have to be refrigerated. The Oatfix has oatmeal and bananas to soothe and soften dry or irritated skin, while Catastrophe Cosmetic refreshes skin with calamine and blueberries.

Soapwalla Lip Locked Lip Balm ($9) in Citrus Ginger
This balm is packed with vegan, organic ingredients like essential oils, vitamin E, and shea butter, for ultimate moisturizing. We like the slightly sweet and spicy scent of the Citrus Ginger, but there's also Coconut Lime and Lavender Mint.

Rahua Shampoo ($32)
This all-natural shampoo's another organic, vegan, and gluten-free gem. Rainforest-grown rahua nut oil nourishes and strengthens hair with omega-9 fatty acids, making it ideal for damaged or chemically treated strands. It has an earthy scent courtesy of palo santo wood oil (from a tree native to South America), while quinoa, an amino acid-rich grain, locks in moisture.

Nvey Hydrating Lip Lustre ($15) in Lolita
This gloss has a subtle color, organic oils and waxes, a sweet orange scent, and leaves lips shiny, but not sticky.

Tarte Pure Maracuja Oil ($46)
Derived from the Amazonian passion flower, this organic, cold-pressed oil is rich in vitamin C and essential fatty acids to firm and moisturize the skin. After cleansing, warm three drops in your hands and dab onto your face, neck, and décolleté instead of a traditional moisturizer.

Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin 2-in-1 Bronzer & Blush ($14) in Light Bronzer/Pink
Free of synthetic fragrances, colors, and preservatives, this duo is great for on-the-go application on sensitive skin.

Neutrogena Naturals Fresh Cleansing and Makeup Remover ($7)
This formula cleanses and removes stubborn makeup in one step without over-drying our skin—not an easy feat! It's packed with coconut-derived cleansers and vitamins, and, of course, is free of parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and dyes.

Vapour Organic Beauty Siren Lipstick ($22) in Au Pair
Natural mineral pigments give the color to this organic lipstick, while shea butter, pomegranate, and jojoba oils condition lips. We like Au Pair, a creamy berry hue, but 20 shades are available, all free of petroleum products and chemicals.

I have used Vapour mascara and lipcolor, and I use Tarte (that particular oil is AWWWWESOME) and Josie Maran argan products.... if you are SUPER SUPER pale, her argan tinted moisturizer in whatever the lightest color is is great  My DD is SO PALE and it's the best match we've ever found, and great on her 18 yo skin.

If you like natural, look at Ahava and especially Korres.  I LOVE Korres, cannot live without their body butter and lip butters.
