Natural makeup removers

Since I started using natural cosmetics I somehow have felt that I wasn’t being all the coherent I could be. I started using natural products because I wanted to have a less impact in nature, by means of using cruelty free cosmetics and organic cosmetics, but I feel that the best way to care of the environment is by reducing my consumerism habits.

And somehow I just realized that the most natural cosmetics are those which are pure and not mixed with other products.

Some products must be bought as I guess we can not replace them with natural ingredients, but there are oils that can be used as cosmetics, and even do a better job than the first ones.

I’ve been using castor oil and almond oil to remove my makeup, and I’m not going to turn back to the store’s makeup removers.

I’ve found that the oils are more gentle with the skin. At first it was hard to get use to the texture, but I’ve got used to it.

I use castor oil to remove my eye makeup. I like this oil because the texture is denser than other oil’s textures, and it’s said that this oil is good for growing your lashes and eyebrows.

For removing the face makeup I use almond oil. Even though it takes more time to remove the makeup with this oil, I still prefer this oil over a regular makeup remover, since this oil moisturizes the skin.



Dr. Organic Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub

I buy natural products from my local store. It is a shop that sells all kinds of beauty products, but they have a place in the store which is dedicated to natural and organic products.

I wanted to get a natural body scrub. After reading tons of ingredients on the products, I decided to go to the place where the natural products were located, and I found Dr. Organic’s products.

Dr. Organic is a natural and organic hair, body and oral care products brand. They use all natural ingredients in their products and emulsifiers, emollients and preservatives permitted by Organic Cosmetics Standard.

They not only use natural ingredients, they use mainly organic ingredients, which means that the ingredients in their products are grown without using pesticides and fertilizers.

Dr. Organic is an affordable brand with different lines to choose from, and I’ve noticed that prices vary depending on the line you choose. They have a range of organic aloe vera, organic pomegranate, organic tea tree products, among others.

The products I’ve bought from Dr. Organic are the “Organic Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub” and the “Organic Pomegranate Toothpaste”.

Today I’m going to write about the body scrub. It’s from their organic olive oil product’s range. The products from this range are indicated for people with dry skin.

I’ve liked this scrub since it’s really soft on the skin, the particles are really small so it isn’t harsh on the skin. After using this product, the skin feels really soft and moisturized. As I said this scrub is really gently, so it doesn’t give a deep exfoliation to the skin, which makes it suitable for dry and sensitive skin.

It’s difficult to describe the smell of this product. But I’ll try. It’s a soft smell, it doesn’t smell like olive oil, but is a fresh smell. The smell doesn’t last on the skin. It isn’t a smell that I really enjoy, but I’m fine with it since this is a natural product.

The product doesn’t indicate how often it can be used, but since it’s really soft I think it could be use once a week, and it should be follow with a deep moisturizer, I use an argan oil and honey body butter.
