The 15 Truely All-Natural Products We Love

The 15 Truely All-Natural Products We Love

Primping and priming the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Wilde, Julianne Moore and Christy Turlington for the red carpet or the cover of Vogue is no small feat, but doing it with as many chemical-free products as possible is a task of Herculean proportions. Makeup artist, and drop-dead gorgeous redhead, KATEY DENNO is committed to reducing her carbon footprint by using local, sustainable and organic lines whenever possible for her most famous clients. Her holistic blog The Beauty of It Is reads like a glossy with tips and tricks to make any nature loving gal feel like she’s not missing a thing (plus, she’ll test products and report back honestly).

1 Pratima Sandalwood Rose Mask

Gently exfoliates, pulls out impurities, and tightens pores, plus it smells divine. When I bought it the esthetician at Pratima Spa told me to apply it and then lay down while it hardened—a forced 15 minutes of relaxation!

2 Alexis Smart Flower

Flower Remedies are a little bit science, a little bit magic, and for me, highly effective. They’re good for what ails you—and for most of us stress is a daily occurrence, which over time shows on the face. I’m using flower remedies to help me on the inside and the out!

3 Skinny Skinny Rosemary Mint Foot Scrub

I don’t need to say much about this product except: who doesn’t love an organic minty foot scrub? It’s a must-have for summer feet preparedness.

4 Ilia Beauty Lipstick

When I want to make a statement with a bold lip, this more-on-the-matte-side hot pink is one of my go-to choices.

5 Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow

No one has made eyeshadows so silky and blendable in the way Kjaer Weis has. She’s a makeup artist, so she knows just what we need—and I’m loving Pretty Purple for my spring time lash-line pop of color.

6 Ilia Beauty Balmy Days Lip Conditioner

I love a good lip balm, and this one is one of my favorites. It’s super moisturizing, and packed with my favorite coconut oil.

7 Burt’s Bees Rose Tinted Lip Balm

I generally go without lipstick unless it’s a special occasion, but I need a little extra help adding color to my face. This tinted lip balm does the trick—it livens up my look without showcasing my lips.

8 Eminence Organic Coconut Firming Lotion

I swear I saw my skin firm right up after I put it on. I kept staring at the leg I’d moisturized next to the untreated one thinking: Is this really happening? How did this make my skin look that much better? Plus it’s coconut scented, which I LOVE.

9 Devita Solar Protective Moisturizer SPF 30

This is one of the few sunscreen/moisturizers that doesn’t leave my face white, is feather-light, and has yet to cause a break-out. Hallelujah!

10 Melvita Geranium Argan Roll-On

I love this deliciously scented, fun to carry and to use cuticle oil. I’ve noticed a huge difference in my nails and cuticles since I started carrying it in my purse.

11 Patyka Radiant Eye Contour

A great, velvety, lightweight, non-greasy, subtly earthy-scented eye cream.

12 Vapour Organic Beauty Cream Blush

The ‘Courtesan’ shade has been my go-to spring and summer cheek tint for years. It’s the perfect pop of flushed color.

13 Tammy Fender Bulgarian Lavender Body Oil

After my evening bath I always cover myself in body oil. Tammy Fender is one of the most amazing brands on the market for just about everything—from face creams and serums, to body products—and this one cured me of my aversion to the scent of lavender. It’s so luxurious, absorbs quickly, and lulls me to sleep.

14 Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Face Mist

I love a face mist in the warmer months. Tata packs hers with skin nourishing ingredients, and a scent that I crave. I also like to mist my sheets with it at night!

15 Lina Hanson Global Face Serum

This deliciously-scented, perfectly-textured face serum is wonderful. I use it as my moisturizer day and night.
