To all of my readers out there who leave comments about looking for organic, natural beauty products…  This post is for you.

I once heard someone say that if you can’t eat the product, then it shouldn’t be applied to your skin.  While I don’t necessarily agree with that statement, something about it stuck with me.  Especially after the incident last month, when Soka ate an entire tube of red lipstick and just about gave me a heart attack (both from the possibility of her getting sick and the scene of the crime being my brand new white area rug.)

When I found out about EWG VERIFIED™, I jumped at the chance to partner with them to learn more about it.  Basically, it’s a new system in which products that claim to be natural and/or organic can be verified quickly by you, the buyer, by a mark of approval.  Seeing this mark, you can be assured this product is fully transparent in its ingredients down to the very last chemical.  It’s sort of like the BBB (Better Business Bureau) in that it gives its “mark of approval” to quality businesses.  Or maybe how Zagat rates restaurants.  In a nutshell, EWG VERIFIED™ mark is a quick way to shop for the healthier options in the store know while knowing that those products follow good manufacturing practices.

I teamed up with EWG VERIFIED™ and they sent me a basket full of healthy goodies to try out for myself.  Below I listed every product I received, but I wanted to highlight several that particularly stood out to me:

Just the Goods Vegan Body Butter – I love the silky consistency of this long lasting body moisturizer.  It leaves your skin feeling incredibly smooth for hours.

Rejuva Minerals Pur’ Lips Moisturizing Lipstick – This lipstick glides on beautifully and is soy-free and gluten-free!

Just the Goods Vegan Perfume Oil – I’m a big believer in essential oils for their amazing healing properties.  I love using natural essential oils for an all day fragrance.

Sally B’s Glossy Lip Gloss – Lip gloss is a must in my beauty book, so finding an organic gloss that adds the perfect touch of shimmer to my pout is a major win.

As you can see in my photos, Soka is still a lipstick fan.  At least I know what she’s going to (try to) eat if she gets her paws on these!

    I follow a lot of fashion blogs, and yours is one of my favorites. I love the yellow with the turquoise bib necklace and fun pictures in this post. It was interesting to read about the EWG-sponsored products. I’d heard of EWG before and use the site mostly to check the safety of sunscreens, but I’ll have to check out its beauty product information, too. Thanks, also, for posting the sizes you wear in your posts. It may not be a big deal, but I shop primarily online, and it really helps me determine what size I should order when shopping online for the same or similar products. Thanks for maintaining such a fun and beautiful blog – I can tell a lot of hard work goes into it!

      Aww thanks so much, Sophia! Hello Gorgeous is my baby, so I put a lot of time and love into it.
      Definitely check out EWG verified since you’re already familiar with EWG. 🙂
