    I love this topic as I switched to much cleaner beauty products about a year ago! It takes a bit of trial and error, but I’m quite happy with all of my products now. I use Acure’s mint shampoo and love it. For foundation, I use a company called 100 percent pure, and for powder, Everyday Minerals. For lipstick, Zuzu Luxe and Gabriel cosmetics are both good. I use the oil cleansing method to wash my face, and for this I use avocado oil. Some other brands that are pretty clean are Eminence Organics, Be Natural Organics, and Rawceuticals. There are many more out there, too. Just have to do your research. Good luck with trying new products!

    Favorite topic of mine! I am obsessed with MyChelle facewash/moisturizer. It takes a few weeks to get used to but the scent, quality, and clean ingredients in this product are awesome (and it smells super fresh too!) The stuff is definitely pricey though.

    Hair is a little tricky. Avalon Organics makes really affordable shampoo that works for a lot of people (myself excluded.) I happen to really love Aubrey Organics, which has some really heavenly products. I especially recommend their Honeysuckle conditioner which is super thick and luscious–almost like a deep condition. I tend to switch between these two brands.

      Awesome information… It seems like it’s hard to find a clean, thick conditioner. Thank you!

  3. Not sure if all Whole Foods are the same, but at mine they have a great beauty/personal care supply backing. If you buy a product–even if you use the entire bottle–and don’t like it, you can return it for a refund. Makes it a little safer to try new things.

      that’s great news! I’ve returned things there before, but didn’t know you can use that much of the product and still exchange!

  4. I really like the Shea Moisture line, which you can find at Target and some CVS stores (for a great price!). The shampoo and conditioner are really nice and don’t leave a build up, and I especially love their restorative hair mask. I also like the Olive & Green Tea shower gel and body oil.

    I’m also trying to clean up some of my products, but prefer to do a gradual shift like you mentioned. Too fast, too furious is never good for my face or my wallet! Good luck on your search for new products : )
