    Shampoo is another big one. A former natural brand I used for years got discontinued and I’ve been struggling to find something that works well with my hair.

Like urban decay- I miss those bright super bold and pigmented shadows that were pressed!! And over the top. It’s very hard to find that in the natural realm. I want a super bright palette that isn’t toxic ??

    I made the switch to natural beauty about a year in a half ago. It was pretty easy to find makeup I liked thanks to youtube. I struggled with deodorant but finally found one this past summer. I’m still having a hard time finding a type of hairspray, or hair products that can hold my curls when I style my hair.

    The hardest natural makeup product that I’ve been having difficult switching to has got to be eyeliner. I’ve tried quite a few natural eyeliners, but the ones that I’ve tried typically cake up, don’t stay on, and smudge far too easily. I have found that 100% pure’s liquid eyeliner is the best out there for natural eyeliner (so far!)

    Mascara, pressed powder and cover stick are the natural products I have the hardest time switching to. Once I find something I tend to stick with it for price reasons or because it works well. I have tried a few natural brands and like something about them but they couldn’t quite replace what I normally used for certain reasons. I do need to explore and experiment more. I have switched to many bath and beauty products for organic and natural ones over the years. It’s just those three last items I need to find natural replacements that are waterproof if possible and provide cover.

    I’m having a hard time switching my foundation and my eyebrow products. I find that for my skin tone it’s very hard to find a natural foundation especially find one with the right warm undertone that doesn’t make me look orange.

    I’m having hard time switching to makeup in general. The only natural makeup thing I have is 100% pure eye pencil. I really need some good natural makeup basics.

    Mascara has been the hardest to adjust to.

    I’m having the hardest time with foundation, powder, concealer and mascara I’ve wasted money on products that don’t work well. It’s a little frustrating.

    In addition to hair dye, I’m finding it difficult to find a spray on fragrance that is nontoxic.

    Mascara that doesn’t make my eyelashes wilt & deodorant that lasts all day! Oh and a fragrance that keeps it smell, smells good & doesnt get my allergies going. Otherwise I have found green n clean products so much nicer :)
