DR. ORGANIC HAUL AND BEAUTY PRODUCT AWARENESS

May 17, 2015


I wholeheartedly believe in organic and natural produce, especially when it narrows down to beauty and skincare. A few months ago, I went on a hunt, reading articles about homemade face masks and scrubs using 100% natural ingredients, kind to the skin, oils, aromas, shaving creams, body butters, and more. Whilst searching through the internet I had also come across a particular article informing readers about the harmful and synthetic chemicals found in our beauty products, which is a topic that I strongly believe is not being discussed enough.


I feel that many bloggers, beauty bloggers, young girls and general users of make-up and skincare don't pick up on, or consider the affect of what they are putting onto their skin. There are many chemicals found in our products such as sodium lauryl sulfate, parabens and phthalates which can all cause problems relating to kidney and respiratory damage, skin allergies, infertility and even cancer. That nude lipstick in Rose Petal is gorgeous but did you read the ingredients whilst browsing or even buying? Do you really know what you're consuming? We absorb 60% of what we put onto are skin, so why not make sure that it's a product with wonderful and natural substances. ( You can read in detail about what is found in our products here, if you would like more info. )

For those of you wondering where to start finding products that are organic, natural and inexpensive, do your research. I would highly recommend Etsy, there are so many wonderful handmade products that you'll come across from bars of soap to bath bombs. If you fancy being a little more adventurous check out Pinterest and start making your own raw and chemical-free home remedies. You'll be surprised that most recipes include items found in the kitchen, are super simple to make and take no time at all. 

1.Virgin Coconut Oil Moisturiser
My all time favourite moisturiser so far! I had struggled finding the right formula that was perfect for my skin, and I definitely think this is the one for me. Light, non-greasy and non-irritable, its full of wonderful bioactive, natural and organic ingredients from Shea Butter, Argan Kernel Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Mango Fruit Extract, the list goes on! It's free from synthetic colours, mineral oils and silicones, not only does it moisturise it also hydrates, nourishes, protects from cell-damaging and smells divine. You definitely couldn't go wrong with this product, and I'm sure it's something I'll buy again and again.

2. Tea Tree Wet Wipes  
Please note if you are going to purchase these, they are not make-up wipes. I made the mistake thinking they were. However, they are ideal for on the go and if you need a refreshing pick me up for face and body.

3. Snail Gel Moisture Mask

Snail Gel? Reeeeeally? I know what you're thinking, gross and unusual. Whilst watching one of Lisa Eldridge's Korean Beauty Haul she had mentioned Snail Gel being an extremely popular product used amongst Korean women. I was quite sceptical when buying the mask, I wasn't entirely sure if I wanted to smother my face in snail liquid. Snail Gel supposedly helps with anti-ageing and also the reduction of scars as well as moisturising. There are also creams part of the Dr. Organic range if you are interested. I'm still yet to try this mask out, and will let you know when I do!

 What were your thoughts on this post, and have you tried any Dr. Organic Products?

  3. The tea tree wipes would be perfect, as I live in humid weather during the summer and get oily skin.
