While there’s some controversy about how much our bodies absorb what we put on our skin, it’s safe to say clean beauty products are on the rise for good reason! I’ve been through a lot of trial and error in the non-toxic product world. And I’m happy to reveal my 6 clean(ish) beauty must-haves. This is a non-sponsored, affiliate link, and incentive-free post. There’s nothing in it for me if you shop these goodies other than to save you time and bring you my tried and true resources for a healthy, radiant look! Let’s dive in…
Counter+ All Bright C Serum
“Obsessed” is a total understatement for how I feel about Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum. After the first or second application of the sample pack I received from my sweet friend, Lindsay Young, my face was GLOWING. The immediate difference this makes in my skin’s tone and clarity is almost unbelievable. It’s become the main essential in my morning skincare routine. I know you’ll love it, too.
Kopari Aluminum-Free Coconut Deodorant
Friend, I can’t tell you the number of aluminum-free deodorants I’ve tried… and hated… over the years! From flat out ineffective to insanely irritating (the commonly used baking soda ingredient gives me underarm rashes galore!), my search began to feel futile. Until Kopari Coconut Deodorant entered my life. This deodorant works beautifully and has a light, fresh fragrance I can’t get enough of. Try the fragrance-free version if you’re extra sensitive!
100% Pure Long Last Liquid Eye Liner
I’ve sworn by this liquid liner for years and it’s still my go-to today. In 3 gorgeous, naturally pigmented hues (black tea, blackberry, and dark chocolate), 100% Pure’s Long Last Liquid Eye Liner is a necessity for both your day-to-day and dramatic eye makeup looks. The fine tip applicator is easy to apply and it truly does last from morning to night.
Tarte Babassu Foundcealer™ Skincare Foundation
Does an all-in-one skincare, moisturizer, foundation, concealer, AND sunscreen sound too good to be true? I assure you it isn’t, babe. Because that’s exactly what you get with Tarte’s Babassu Foundcealer™ Skincare Foundation. This vegan, miracle worker hydrates, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and improves your skin’s texture thanks to ingredients like babassu (similar to coconut oil), hyaluronic acid, sunflower seed, and vitamin E. This busy mama appreciates how much time-saving work this one simple product does for my skin!
Toups Organics Activated Charcoal Face Bar
Looking for the best cleanser investment you’ll ever make? Here it is. 16 months later, I’m STILL enjoying my first Toups Organics Activated Charcoal Face Bar both morning and night. This baby is going to last you a verrrrry long time! (Psst… You can see how much I have left in the intro photo of this post.) It’s a gentle cleanser that leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth, and squeaky clean. Highly recommend!
Norwex Body and Face Pack
While we’re on the subject of cleansing, I was introduced to these by my dear friend, Allison, and I’m not sure I could live without the Norwex Body and Face cloths now! A daily makeup wearer, these super-soft washcloths remove every ounce of product without irritating my sensitive eyes or skin. After lathering with the Toups Organics Activated Charcoal Face Bar at nighttime, I rinse with water and dry with these cloths, delicately rubbing any stubborn traces of mascara or eye liner from sight. The best part? Norwex’s BacLock® protects against microbes and odors collecting within the cloth. And coming in a convenient 3-pack, you’ll always have a clean one on hand!

I don’t give blanket advice often. So you know I mean it when I say these must-have products are 100% worth the investment. I hope you love them as much as I do! I can’t wait to hear what you think in the comments. And feel free to share YOUR top beauty picks with me, too.
