I am having the hardest time switching to natural intimate cleanser.
Sonia SalazarDecember 12, 2016 at 9:48 pm
My hardest make up product has been the product for doing my Eyebrown, is the last product that I need switch .
Jennifer MaiettaDecember 23, 2016 at 10:45 pm

Switching to a friendly mascara
Alicia DishmanDecember 20, 2016 at 5:31 pm
Me Sandra! I need non flaking thick máscara that is waterproof. No luck so far ?
Isabel T.December 12, 2016 at 9:07 am
Lipstick has been the hardest. I’ve switched everything else.
LalaDecember 12, 2016 at 9:58 am
Makeup so I don’t generally wear much or anything ?
Kimberly nicole nocumDecember 12, 2016 at 10:17 am
MelissaDecember 12, 2016 at 10:33 am
Toothpaste, but I think I found a good one to try for a good price too :)
AimeeDecember 13, 2016 at 9:10 pm
That’s been the hardest thing for me too! Any recommendations? I’d love to know what you’ve foun.
MeaghanDecember 12, 2016 at 10:46 am
Deodorant!! I’ve tried so many, but so few seem to actually work well for me.
PamelaDecember 12, 2016 at 11:04 am
Liquid eyeliner. Currently using cruelty free, but would like to find an alternative with comparing quality!
BeckyDecember 13, 2016 at 3:57 pm
super into this one! https://gabrielcosmeticsinc.com/shop/zuzu-luxe-liquid-eyeliner/
CaroleeDecember 12, 2016 at 11:07 am
I completely switched over to organic makeup/ products about a year ago, but I’m always interested in trying new brands.
YuliaDecember 12, 2016 at 11:23 am
Hardest time is definitely nail polish! I’m still looking for a really safe one that delivers, most of the 5 free have still lots of toxins inside of them and the really clean ones just don’t work :/
LydiaDecember 12, 2016 at 11:25 am
I have sampled so many green beauty brands! I have found lots of great organic alternatives to my old traditional beauty products… Except for eyeliner! I love a good solid black winged look and I haven’t found anything with the staying power of my old liners. But I won’t give up!
Cassandra cDecember 12, 2016 at 11:46 am
Hard time switching to natural foundation and primer.
AngelitaDecember 12, 2016 at 12:01 pm
Switching to mascara that stays and gives oomf!
Maggie MorrisDecember 12, 2016 at 1:15 pm
Lipstick that stays and is creamy is hard for me to switch to.
Kinal PatelDecember 12, 2016 at 1:55 pm
Having hardest time switching to all natural and/or organic eyeliner
CiaraDecember 12, 2016 at 2:16 pm
Kate SpencerDecember 12, 2016 at 2:51 pm
I’ve had a hard time finding face lotion/cream that doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin and cause breakouts. I’ve found 2 so far but hope to find more so my options aren’t so limited.
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.
MarisolDecember 12, 2016 at 3:33 pm
YesseniaDecember 12, 2016 at 6:20 pm
For sure bail polish. I just don’t wear it often because I can’t find something that will last and isn’t so toxic.
Laurie DillDecember 12, 2016 at 7:05 pm
Would love to try organic eyeshadow.
Melissa CabralDecember 12, 2016 at 7:12 pm
Switching to shampoo and an eyeshadow base and finishing spray
Erin BellDecember 12, 2016 at 7:15 pm
I luckily have switched years ago so I have found a lot of replacements, but I miss all of the eyeshadow palette hypes! 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 ??
Harleen KaurDecember 12, 2016 at 8:04 pm
I’m having a hard time switching to a natural lipstick. I’ve heard a lot about red apple lipsticks on the youtube channel of holistichabits. I would live to try it
SarahDecember 12, 2016 at 8:31 pm
I can’t seem to find a natural hairspray that gives me the hold and look I’m looking for without being sticky.
CatarinaDecember 12, 2016 at 8:34 pm
Having a hard time switching my foundation.
Cathy davisDecember 12, 2016 at 8:53 pm
Having a hard time with lipstick.
AnneDecember 12, 2016 at 8:55 pm
Foundation and eyeliner that stays I place
AngelicaDecember 12, 2016 at 9:01 pm
Laura PlanteDecember 12, 2016 at 9:07 pm
Tiffany KDecember 12, 2016 at 9:11 pm
Concealer, none of the natural ones I tried worked well so I went back to a traditional brand even though I know it’s got parabans.
Evelyn FloresDecember 12, 2016 at 9:18 pm
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.
LRDecember 12, 2016 at 9:18 pm
Hair styling products.
In addition to desiring natural, it also must be free of my allergens.
Jennifer StoweDecember 12, 2016 at 9:30 pm
I have a hard time finding a good haircare products and skinase product.
Brittany BDecember 12, 2016 at 9:42 pm
ErinDecember 12, 2016 at 9:44 pm
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!)
YzzyDecember 12, 2016 at 9:47 pm
It’s hard to find a nice organic, toxic-free, and cruelty-free mascara that will hold the curl after I use the eyelash curler and doesn’t flake after application
EmilyDecember 12, 2016 at 9:48 pm
Facial cleanser and deodorant had not been a very easy task finding one that I like but also works well. I
KellyDecember 12, 2016 at 9:48 pm
Nail Polish and foundation
ChloeDecember 12, 2016 at 9:51 pm
Hardest time switching to Liquid eyeliner, but clean beauty is so worth it!
Lisa Van GilstDecember 12, 2016 at 9:58 pm
Mascara, hair products,
Jessica GallagherDecember 12, 2016 at 10:03 pm
Toothpaste and a spray sunscreen! I have found great products but don’t like the price
EricaDecember 12, 2016 at 10:08 pm
Natural, vegan eye shadows that go on the color they appear without having to apply a pound of it! haha :)
Estephania ZapataDecember 12, 2016 at 10:20 pm
Eyeliner. I have not yet found a smudge free black eyeliner.
KatieDecember 12, 2016 at 10:25 pm
The most difficult would be nail polish followed closely by liquid eyeliner. ?
CassieDecember 12, 2016 at 10:29 pm
Not sure if this counts as a beauty product, but I have a hard time switching to an all natural deoderant! I’ve tried a few different options from a few different brands, but nothing has stood out for me!
JoleneDecember 12, 2016 at 10:31 pm
Foundation. It’s hard to find one that performs how I want it to without costing 3-4x what I would normally pay.
Araceli MedranoDecember 12, 2016 at 10:35 pm
I’m having a hard time finding an all-natural shampoo that leaves my hair feeling clean (not dry) and smelling good.
Ellen RollingsDecember 12, 2016 at 10:42 pm
I absolutely love Red Apple Lipstick products. Beautiful colors, great formulas and no worries about the ingredients.
Sara DinsmoreDecember 12, 2016 at 10:50 pm
Definitely a natural, non-aerosol hairspray!
EmileyDecember 12, 2016 at 11:04 pm
Deodorant and nail polish
Meredith OlsonDecember 12, 2016 at 11:06 pm
SusanDecember 12, 2016 at 11:12 pm
Eyeshadows and things like deodorant.
Jacky PereiraDecember 12, 2016 at 11:18 pm
Hair products to make my hair keep its natural curls
Kristin Marciasini SchneiderDecember 13, 2016 at 12:08 am
I’ve done a pretty good job switching most of my products but foundation is a tough one because a lot of the green beauty lines are online and I need to see them to match my color. And eyeshadow.
Kathryn BarryDecember 13, 2016 at 12:25 am
Eye make up remover.
VioletDecember 13, 2016 at 12:29 am
BrittDecember 13, 2016 at 1:53 am
Completely switched over but love to try new things!
RebeccaDecember 13, 2016 at 8:05 am
Switching to a more natural mascara!
Ashley WilliamsDecember 13, 2016 at 8:15 am
Definitely have the hardest time swtlitcjing hair products.. I have such curly hair?
Candace Lynn B.December 13, 2016 at 8:32 am
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.
Lynne MeyerDecember 13, 2016 at 11:38 am
I’m having a hard time switching to natural foundations. I have sensitive skin, but I also need something with SPF coverage.
GenevieveDecember 13, 2016 at 1:43 pm
The most difficult product is nail polish. None that are biodegradable work. Sorry Kid Licks!
Cristina LeyDecember 13, 2016 at 2:15 pm
Fortunate, that after 4 years of reading, searching, investigation, research, trial and error! All my beauty products are Cruelty Free but 100 % natural the hardest should be hair products…
A. ShawDecember 13, 2016 at 5:20 pm
I’m having trouble switching to mascara! ??
ConnieDecember 13, 2016 at 6:03 pm
Foundation and concealer (want samples to color match), eye liner with staying power
Britney sheetsDecember 13, 2016 at 6:48 pm
Eye liner and mascara probably
JessicaDecember 13, 2016 at 7:24 pm
I am having the hardest time switching away from Rx acne products, like Retinol and Benzoyl Peroxide.
AdrianDecember 13, 2016 at 8:34 pm
Mascara is the hardest product I have in switching to a natural product. Next would be hair color.
AimeeDecember 13, 2016 at 9:12 pm
The hardest thing for me has been toothpaste and mouthwash. I know there are great options out there, I’m just having a hard time finding one that works, I feel good and safe using, and that is affordable.
Jennifer StoweDecember 13, 2016 at 9:34 pm
Hard product for green beauty to find is haircare for me.
Dorothy ClaytonDecember 13, 2016 at 10:05 pm
Mascara and hairspray!

Shampoo and Conditioner that actually work!?
Jane HechtDecember 14, 2016 at 7:52 pm
Moisturizer I’m almost 65 and I have difficulty finding something not too heavy.

Shampoo. I have scalp “issues” and am constantly going back to dandruff shampoo.
Ana HiltonDecember 15, 2016 at 9:05 am
Toothpaste! I can’t seem to find one that leaves that really clean minty feeling!

I am having the hardest time switching to an organic or clean mascara. The ones I have tried so far smudge really bad!
deeptiDecember 17, 2016 at 9:56 pm
Shampoo. Keep going to conventional shampoos to prevent dandruff
Meagan ColumbusDecember 18, 2016 at 4:39 am
Definitely deodorant!! Still trying different options.
LoriDecember 18, 2016 at 4:41 am
Shampoo and conditioner. Anti-dandruff would be nice.

Shampoo for sure!
Lisa MasonDecember 18, 2016 at 6:25 am
Liquid shower soap!
RobinDecember 18, 2016 at 7:46 am
I am struggling with finding hair care products. I have spent money on so many lines that I thought would help me and just ended up very disappointed and out of the money spent. I thought the more expensive lines would live up to my expectations but that was not the case. So I am looking for a line that adds volume and is reasonably priced.
SuzetteDecember 18, 2016 at 8:00 am
Finding a good foundation for my skin. I have eczema, so any beauty product is a challenge.
Leslie DeneenDecember 18, 2016 at 8:11 am
Hair care products
ShannaDecember 18, 2016 at 8:17 am
I have gone natural on most things, but hair styling products are some of the last products I am struggling to find good natural alternatives for!
Kristen MarshallDecember 18, 2016 at 8:30 am
Lipstick. A red lipstick shade I like that stays on. Such a challenge.
gloria pattersonDecember 18, 2016 at 2:35 pm
trying to switch but you know how it is HABITS………………….. SHOWER GEL
MichelleDecember 18, 2016 at 10:07 pm
Switching to a organic hairspray…….ugggg!

ShalomDecember 20, 2016 at 6:52 pm
MichelleDecember 20, 2016 at 8:35 pm
Chemical free hair color that covers gray – help!!!!!!

aprilDecember 20, 2016 at 11:45 pm
I have itchy, flaky scalp and am having the hardest time switching my shampoo. I just haven’t found a natural shampoo that works for my scalp issues.
Dharmadevi BarathakumaranDecember 21, 2016 at 8:13 am
Also, nail polish that is completely chemical free not just toxin free.. i know it sounds unrealistic, but one can dream!
Harleen KaurDecember 21, 2016 at 9:35 am
I have dandruff and definitely more these days because of the cold weather. Don’t know how to tackle it with a natural shampoo
BrittnieDecember 21, 2016 at 2:25 pm

CatherineDecember 21, 2016 at 5:13 pm
Eyelash glue!!!!…. Duo still has the best performance and nothing seems to be on par
UshanieDecember 21, 2016 at 5:37 pm
The answer is definitely mascara. I have a hard time finding one that gives volume.

having a terrible time switching to an organic mascara, lol
AudrianaDecember 23, 2016 at 8:12 am
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.
Harleen KaurDecember 23, 2016 at 10:00 am
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.
twjDecember 23, 2016 at 10:34 am
Mascara for sure
Lisa KerstetterDecember 23, 2016 at 10:58 am
Mascara has been the hardest to adjust to.
NaryDecember 23, 2016 at 11:55 am
Face primer was the hardest transition!
Dolores HammettDecember 23, 2016 at 12:55 pm
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.
ShriDecember 23, 2016 at 1:31 pm
Switching to a natural sunscreen with high spf
ShriDecember 23, 2016 at 1:32 pm
And a mascara as well
Tonya WilliamsDecember 23, 2016 at 4:36 pm
Love your lipsticks and lip liners would love to try More products !!!! Love your collection at whole foods
Kat LippincottDecember 23, 2016 at 5:01 pm
In addition to hair dye, I’m finding it difficult to find a spray on fragrance that is nontoxic.
Annie KDecember 23, 2016 at 7:49 pm
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 :)
MariaDecember 23, 2016 at 9:26 pm
I love makeup and skincare! I would love to try new organic and green products!
