Natural Beauty

My guest blog post lat week for Wisconsin Public Television’s Engage Wisconsin site was about natural personal care products. In the article, I discussed the ingredients and chemical byproducts that are the most harmful to our health and to the environment. I thought it would be fun today, as a follow-up, to share with you some of my favorite natural body products.

Badger Sleep Balm. I rub this stuff on my lips just before bed each night. It helps me from getting chapped skin in the winter, but mostly I just love the calming lavender and bergamot fragrance. I’m so attached to this stuff, I bring a tin with me when I travel.

J.R. Watkins Aloe & Green Hand and Cutlicle Salve. A nice, thick salve for cracked winter hands. I keep it in my desk drawer at work. The aroma is subtle and fresh.

Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer. I love this stuff because it’s a lipstick and chapstick combination, especially if you buy the darker colors. It’s moisturizing and the peppermint oil in it feels soothing on chapped lips.

Yes to Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gel. As soon as I hit 30, I became obsessed with eye creams, gels, and serums. I don’t know if they really work or not, or if it’s just placebo, but they feel so good on my face…

If you have any favorite natural personal care products, feel free to share them in a comment.
