My Favorite Stores to Shop Natural Beauty + Giveaway

My love for natural beauty is growing stronger and stronger. I love how the products make my face feel and I know that they contain good ingredients. 

I started out on this natural beauty journey shortly after I got my certificate in Holistic Health Coaching. I realized how much we are concerned about what we put into our bodies (which is sooooo important) and not enough attention to what we put on it. 

This is why I started reading more and more about beauty products and how they affect your skin, body systems, and hormones. Although I’m not completely clean on my beauty products, I’m trying hard to replace my favorites a little at a time.

Parabens are first on my list to eliminate. I feel that Parabens are the worst out of all ingredients. They interrupt your endocrine system which is responsible for glands in your body. They can also disrupt hormones like estrogen. The FDA does not have strict regulations on the makeup industry either (FDA cosmetic regulations).

Now that you know a little about how I came to love natural beauty products, I’ll be sharing my favorite stores to shop green and natural beauty products. You might be familiar with some of these and some of them may be new to you. Either way I hope you find this useful and I encourage you to embark on your own natural beauty journey. 

My Favorite Stores to Shop Natural Beauty Products

100% Pure

This shop is what started my obsession. I stumbled upon this brand when I started researching green beauty brands. I fell in love instantly. They are natural and 100% cruelty-free, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins.

My Favorite Stores to Shop Natural Beauty

PÜR Cosmetics

The hardest part about using clean beauty products is that many don’t offer a variety of pallets that you would normally find in regular makeup. I love PÜR Cosmetics because they have a variety of pallets and their products are made without Parabens. They are also 100% Cruelty Free and have a lot of products that are Vegan and Gluten-Free.

My favorite products are the Cameo Contour Stick Dual-Ended Foundation and Volume Vixen Mascara.

Integrity Botanicals

I absolutely love the story behind Integrity Botanicals (read it) and how they came to be. They were shocked to find out that 89% of all cosmetics sold in the U.S. contain an ingredient that has not been evaluated for safety! Crazy right! So they created Integrity Botanicals and only sell the crème de la crème of natural beauty products. 

They research the ingredients themselves and also cross reference with EWG Skin Deep database. Which is an awesome resource for finding out how toxic your beauty products are. You can check out that database here

**All their products are always free of: artificial fragrances, artificial colors (except for nail polish), parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, PEG’s, hydroquinone, oxybenzone, sulfates, Triclosan, phenoxyethanol and dimethicone.

Citrine Natural Beauty Bar

This shop holds amazing brands like Jane Iredale, Tata Harper, RMS Beauty, Kjaer Weis, May Lindstrom and many more. It’s meant to be a one stop shop for all your beauty needs, and it is just that. 

They have a store in Phoenix, AZ so if you’re local go check them out! 

Some of my favorite brands they carry are ILIA and Moon Juice

I love love love this store! They carry 65 brands and so many that I love. Every product sold is free of toxins, parabens and other dangerous chemicals found in normal beauty products.

I hope this list inspires to set out on your own natural beauty journey and to really think of what you put on your skin. Your skin is an organ and the largest one your body has. That’s why it’s so important that we take care of it just as we would the rest of our body. 🙂

      It’s definitely hard to do but totally worth it. I’ve been doing it a little at a time. I got a skin condition out of nowhere so I started to clean up my beauty products and it’s helped a lot. Definitely do your research. 🙂

    I’ve been making the transition to natural as well. My skin is a bit older so moisture is key. Argan and vitamin E oils have been a wonderful change from the chemical filled moistruzers I used in the past. I’m on the lookout for a good natural tinted facial cream.

    I like seeing your pics of San Diego – I live here too.
