1. Acure Organics Leave-in Conditioner Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell, $10
This ultra-hydrating leave-in conditioner is designed to protect hair at the cellular level. Argan Stem cells help strengthen the root bulb while argan oil provides body + shine to each hair follicle. I use this before heat-styling my hair, but you can spray it in for all-day weightless moisture that makes your hair manageable.
2. Nourish Ultra-Moisturizing Organic Hand Wash, $8
This gentle, creamy USDA organic hand cleanser contains soothing ingredients like aloe, shea butter, quinoa protein + essential oils that wash away every trace of grime, leaving hands soft + refreshed. We have one of these at every sink in our house + have even given them as gifts. My fave scents are the Fresh Fig + Wild Berries!
3. Jane Iredale Pommisst Hydration Spray, $19
This is no ordinary facial spritz! It quenches skin with pomegranate, (antioxidant + UV protector known to help protect against skin cancer), white tea + seaweed extracts. I use this under primer to hydrate, or over makeup to set it. Oh! And it smells so fresh + delish that I want to wear it as perfume, haha.
4. Aubrey Organics Crème de la Shave, $6
This silky smooth, moisture-rich formula conditions + protects skin for an ultra-smooth shave. Made with rich emollients + fruit extracts, this moisturizing shave cream pampers + leaving your legs so soft, you may not need a moisturizer after shaving. I’ve been using these since 2010 + loving them ever since. They are one of the cleanest shaving products out on the market (besides soap), and all scents are fab.
5. Pacifica Perfume Roll-on, $12
These roll-ons smell divine + are a must-have in my bag. While Pacifica has confirmed that they do use some synthetic scents in natural grain alcohol, they make it clear that all of their products are free of phthalates, nitro-musks, benzene + other things you don’t want in your perfume. If you don’t want hippy, earthy scents – these are the next best thing compared to conventional counterparts. They’re also a steal! A few of my fave scents are Tuscan Blood Orange, Ruby Guava + Indian Coconut Nectar.

Thanks for sharing! Do you prefer the Acure leave-in conditioner to the Yarok Feed Your Ends?
DanielleMay 6, 2013 at 2:19 pm
I like both, but prefer the Acure.

I just bought the Acure Leave In Conditioner and LOVE it! I have tangly hair and it makes it so easy to comb through. I also adore Nourish products and just got the almond vanilla hand soap to use at work (because I won’t use the nasty weird smelling green stuff they put in the soap dispensers.) It is truly fabulous! LOVE your new design. <3

Hello! I found your site a few weeks ago, although I can’t recall exactly what brought me here! Anyway, I am so thankful to you for sharing your story and for sharing all that you’ve learned and tried. I started my own little “revolution” here in our home a few months ago with personal care and cosmetics, even though I had done it several years ago with cleaning supplies….not sure why I stopped at that!!
After reading this post, I went to my Whole Foods and bought up a lot of Acure products. I am in LOVE! I had been struggling through several other shampoos/conditioners that were turning my hair into STRAW. So I am thrilled with their haircare!! I also am using their facial skincare, and so far I really like it. I had been using coconut oil for darn near everything, but I like to have a few “products”…hehe. ;o)
I think I’ve found replacements for all of my “stuff” except a body moisturizer. I’m still on the hunt for a really good one. I’ve looked at a lot (maybe all?) of your site. Any good ones that you HIGHLY recommend for everyday, right-out-of-the-shower use??
Again, thank you for what you are doing!

Yay! You go girl!
So happy I could help! ;)
Check here for all of the body moisturizers I recommend. The oils + butters won’t be greasy if you apply less than you think + on damp skin after getting out of the shower.

LOVE almost all of these products! (I’ve yet to try Nourish Organic products.) But ALL of the others would make my top 5 or so lists as well! The Acure Organics Leave-In Conditioner is my FAVE. Amazing product! I have been using this for a few months now and I don’t know how I lived without it! ;) Love the Aubrey Shave Cream as well (my favorite is Toasted Almond). ANYTHING Jane Iredale is tops in my book – the first “complete” makeup product line I “discovered” when I dumped all of my health & beauty products. (Yes, I did it all at once!) And I own an embarrassing number of the Pacifica roll-on perfumes! (Although French Lilac is my favorite – but I LOVE many of the scents!)
