Do you wear makeup every day? If you do, you may be wondering, is organic skin care really better? Well, I am here to tell you that it is! And if you want to wear make up, you should, and you can find organic beauty products that will work for you. And today I'm sharing the best organic beauty products!
As someone who owned a bake shop for over ten years, I wore makeup every single day to work because it makes me feel good. And whenever I was working the front counter, I would get asked all the time what kind of products I used.
While I have always believed that organic skin care is really better for you – I feel it's take the beauty industry a ways to get there. I used to order all my makeup online from a company in New Zealand, and pay insane custom fees just to get it here! But, luckily, there are many companies in the US now that make amazing organic beauty products.
And now that I work form home, I still put on some makeup every day, even if I never leave the house. My beauty routine is for me, it's not for anyone else, and makeup makes me feel good just like food does. While knowing where your food comes from and choosing organic food is very important for your health, organic beauty products are the same!

Is organic skin care really better?
Think about how everything you put on your skin gets absorbed into it, so it's almost like you're ingesting it in a way. So, if you're using products that are full of chemicals or gnarly ingredients then those ingredients are absorbing into your skin.
So, I think that organic skin care is definitely the way to go. I also believe that using a natural and organic product will help my skin heal, thrive, and grow in the best way possible. So, I always use organic products for my skin, hair, and makeup.

So, I wanted to share with you the best organic beauty products (or at least what I think are the best!). All of these organic beauty products are ones I use (or have used and liked). The products I'm sharing are perfect for a day in the kitchen or a night out with friends or family.
The makeup products I use can last all day in a hot kitchen and still keep you looking great when you leave work. I'm sharing everything from organic face wash to organic soaps, organic sunscreen, organic makeup, and more! Check out my list of the best organic beauty products.
The Best Organic Soap
Soap is something you may take for granted, but think about how often you use it – every single day! I use a simple gentle bar soap when I shower and Delaney also uses it too. So this way we can easily share soap. My favorite right now is Dr. Bronner's Pure-Castile Bar Soap in Citrus. They have many scents of this soap, but I prefer very mild scents that are very natural smelling and this one is perfect! I also do like the Peppermint one, but you could try the sample pack and see which ones you like.
There are other organic soaps out there, but I've been using this one for a long time and it works for me. I have very sensitive skin, so I don't like to change my routine unless needed! And, Dr. Bronner's also puts an emphasis on fair trade and regenerative ingredients, which I think is a big deal. So I love supporting that and buying their products.
The Best Organic Face Wash
I love the Skin Wise Organics Deep Gel Cleanser. This face wash has minimal organic ingredients, it has a good scent which is very mellow, and it cleans so well! I use this morning and night.
Before, I was using Beauty by Earth Foaming Face Wash Peppermint Tea Tree. I love this face wash! It is amazing on your face, the scent is amazing, and you just feel refreshed and clean after using it. Delaney also loves it, and he's currently using it right now.
We have also used the Christina Moss Face Wash. And the ingredients in this are great. However, the scent wasn't for me as it's Rosemary. Which I love rosemary, but I just didn't like it for my face. But, if this speaks to you then definitely give it a try as I love this brand.
If you're looking for an exfoliating face wash, then Skin Wise Organics makes my favorite ones. I use this about three times a week, and it makes my face feel so good! They use very minimal organic ingredients, and I'm obsessed with this.
The Best Organic Shampoo & Conditioner
I am currently using two different kinds of shampoo and conditioners as I like to switch it up sometimes. I have been using 100% Pure shampoo and conditioner forever. I really like them and have been using the Honey & Virgin Coconut Restorative Shampoo and Conditioner for a while. I love the smell and it makes my hair feel great. I also really love the Kelp and Mint Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner too. I don't really need restorative or volumizing haha, but I just like these scents.
I currently also started using the Avalon Organics Shampoo and Conditioner. Delaney likes their Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner the best and usually prefers to use that. We both like the Peppermint one, so we have that for when we travel and will share, and I've also tried the Clarifying Lemon recently and I also like that a lot as well. This one is much more budget friendly than 100% Pure.
The Best Organic Body Lotion
Right now, I am using a simple 2 ingredient body lotion that is just organic coconut oil and vitamin E. It's by Sky Organics. Because this is coconut oil, it can harden, so you'll have to warm it up to use it. I find that just warming it up my hands as I rub it on works just fine. Because we live at 8,000 feet, it's very dry here. So using this has been helping me with my dry skin and to feel moisturized all day long without having to reapply lotion multiple times.
If you are looking for more of a soft and buttery body lotion that is easy to put on, then I really like 100% Pure Nourishing Body Cream. I like the Coconut scent, but the Vanilla Bean is also really good. They have other options as well. This one is thick, creamy, smells nice and it works really good. This is my fancy lotion because it isn't cheap! But, it's totally worth it.
If you are looking for a more budget friendly organic body lotion, then my favorite is the Avalon Organics Hand & Body Lotion. They have a few scents, but surprisingly the coconut is not my favorite here. I usually love coconut everything and it's a mellow scent so it is usually great for me, but I didn't like this one unfortunately. But, I do like the Peppermint scent! Plus, the price is very friendly for an organic lotion!
The Best Organic Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C serum is something I have been using for a long time. I literally cannot remember when I started using it, but probably before I was even 21 years old, I would guess. I just love the way it makes my skin feel, so it's something I always use! I use this on my face and neck right after I get out of the shower before I apply anything else.
I love the Kleem Organics Vitamin C Serum, and I have been using this one for a long time. It smells really good, and I can buy it on Amazon so it's really easy to get all the time. I also recently just tried the Beauty By Earth Vitamin C Serum and I also love it! Both of these vitamin C serums are made with organic ingredients and feel amazing on your face!
The Best Organic Sunscreen
Sunscreen is something that you use often, especially in the summer months, like every single day! So, think about how much you're using that and it's absorbing into your skin. I have been using the Coola brand all summer, and I love it! They have spray and lotion versions. We have bought the Unscented SPF 50 Spray, the Pina Colada SPF 30 Spray, and the Guava Mango SPF 50 Lotion. I was tentative to buy the scented ones, but that was all they had so I gave it a shot. And their scents are incredibly mellow and nice, I actually even like them! And their lotion option rubs in very well and it's light on your skin. You don't feel like you are caked in sunscreen with it being very thick like some lotions. Coola Sunscreen is also reef safe which is a big deal to us.
I also recently was just able to try the Beauty by Earth Mineral Sunscreen Spray and it's really nice too! It is a Vanilla Coconut scent, which I also find very welcoming. Plus, it's also reef safe as well. Their lotion one is a SPF 25 which is great when I don't need full protection and want to get some color. Either of these options are a great choice for sunscreen that uses organic ingredients.

The Best Organic Tinted Sunscreen
If you are looking for an organic tinted sunscreen for your face, then I got you covered. I used to only wear sunscreen on my face if I was planning on being out in the sun all day long, because I don't ever burn, I usually just brown. But, as I've gotten older and have started seeing some sun spots, I realize how important sunscreen on your face is, even if you don't burn! So, now I am a sunscreen on my face every single day person, even if I don't leave the house. This part of my makeup routine, and now I use a tinted sunscreen as opposed to a tinted moisturizer like I used to use. And they really work the same way, but you have the benefits of SPF.
I have been using the Coola Tinted Sunscreen for a while now, and I use the Coola Organic Rosilliance BB Cream with SPF 30. It acts as a tinted moisturizer, BB cream, sunscreen, and foundation all in one and it's really light on your face. They have three shades, I use Golden Hour.
I also just got the Beauty by Earth Tinted Sunscreen with SPF 20, and this one is so amazing. The Coola one is very light, and while it is great, if you are looking for more coverage it's more like a sunscreen or lotion. While the Beauty by Earth Tinted Sunscreen with SPF 20 is more of a tinted moisturizer, I could wear this and not put any other makeup on all day, it really is that amazing. Especially when I have a good tan going! The only other makeup I use after this step in my routine is a blush and bronzer (not counting my eyes here), and I don't even feel I need these when I have this on as it provides coverage and sunscreen which is amazing!
The Best Organic Face Lotion
I have been using the Christina Moss Facial Moisturizer forever! I cannot remember anything else I used before this, to be honest. This has just a few organic ingredients that make a very gentle and moisturizing lotion for your face. Even Delaney likes to use it, so it can be used for both men or women. I buy the unscented one as I am very sensitive to things being too smelly, but they also have one with a scent if you prefer.
The Best Organic Tinted Moisturizer
I use the organic tinted sunscreen above as a tinted moisturizer. But, if you don't wan sunscreen in it (but, please let me tell you that you do!) then I recommend using the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer. I used this for many years before I switched to the sunscreen option. I like this one a lot, it's not heavy on your face and it blends in really nice. The problem I always had with this one when using it was that it was always out of stock in my color, haha! Part of the reason I switched.
The Best Organic BB Cream
If you like BB cream and want sunscreen, then just use the Coola Organic Rosilliance BB Cream with SPF 30. But, if you're just looking for a BB Cream, then I used to use the Physicians Formula Organic Wear BB Cream or the 100% Pure BB Cream. The Physicians Formula Organic Wear BB Cream is more budget friendly and I found them to be very very similar.
The Best Organic Mascara
I literally never wear mascara – but, I've needed it before when I film real TV (real TV, not Instagram videos haha). So, for those times, I have used a few different options, but I like them all equally. The only difference is the price point.
The first option is Physicians Formula Organic Wear Black Mascara, this one is more budget friendly. And 70% of the ingredients are from organic farming, it's free of harsh chemicals and all that crap. The other one I've used is 100% Pure, but this one is double the price of the other one.
The Best Organic Eye Shadow
I have been using the 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Eyeshadow forever! I like the shades Vanille, Star Bright, Flax Seed, Vanilla Sugar, and Gilded. Then I found the Han Skincare All Natural Eyeshadows, which are very similar but the Han one is less expensive, so that's a bonus of this one. But, Han doesn't offer as many colors as 100% Pure. But, the Han Celebrate color is the absolute best.
I also recently found Lauren Brooke Cosmetics, and they have an eye shadow that is over 88% organic botanical base. I just tried this recently, and I really like it. Plus, they offer two shades in one pack which is really nice. I just bought the Cappuccino/Pearl colorway and I really like it.
The Best Organic Blush
I prefer to use a blush cream stick over traditional powder blush. So, that's what I'm sharing with you here. The one I currently use is the Han Skincare Cosmetics All Natural Mutlistick. I love the color Innocence and also Coral Hibiscus. You can also use this on your lips if need be, and sometimes if I'm on camera and they need me to use lip color I will just use this! I also love the way this one smells, it is so good! And that's coming from someone who is very picky about smells. If you were a child of the 80s and remember the toy Lilly Vanillily (if you know you know), this literally smells just like her!
Before using Han Skincare Cosmetics All Natural Mutlistick I used the 100% Pure Lip & Cheek Tint. I like the Peach Glow color the best for me. These are both basically the same exact thing. But, I like the smell of the Han Skincare Cosmetics All Natural Mutlistick better than the 100% Pure Lip & Cheek Tint and it's also less expensive!
The Best Organic Bronzer
My all time favorite is the 100% Pure Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer. I've tried many other ones, including the Physicians Formula Organic Wear Bronzer, Ilia Beauty Bronzer and more. But, I have always liked the 100% Pure bronzer the best! It just works best for me and my complexion.
The Best Organic Chapstick
I am a chapstick fiend, I have to have one at all times. So, I have lots of amazing organic chapsticks to share with you! The first one is my favorite and it's called Moroccan Magic, obviously the Coconut Almond is my favorite scent. I also love Sky Organics Chapstick, they have tons of flavors and you can try them all the sampler pack. My favorite is the Coconut (obviously) but the Cherry, Mint, Vanilla Bean and really all of them are so good. You can buy the individual flavors or the variety pack.
The Best Organic Lip Sunscreen
I use sunscreen on my lips anytime I am going outside. While I never burn much on my skin, I always have seemed to burn on my lips if I don't have sunscreen. So, ever since I was a kid I've always used a chapstick with SPF in the summer or winter if I'm outside. My favorite one is the SPF 30 Pina Colada Lip Balm. I buy this all the time! It's buttery, it coats your lips, and the flavor is mellow.
The Best Organic Sunless Tanner
The best sunless tanner is from Beauty by Earth. I used to use one I bought from Australia years and years ago that was the most natural one I could find at the time. But, now I use this one. The Beauty by Earth one is so nice, it works so well, it doesn't leave you orange, it smells nice, and it's so easy to use! I highly recommend if you want to keep some color in the winter to give it a try!
The Best Organic Face Wipes
I am guilty of never washing my face before bed until I made it into my thirties. I don't wear a ton of makeup, and no eye makeup besides some shadow so I just got lazy and never did it. I would do it sometimes, but I always thought it was so much work to wash your face in the sink, get water all over yourself and the bathroom vanity, etc. But, I started doing it when I moved into my new house as I found these organic anti aging face wipes that clean makeup off and have benefits!
I now use these Rawganic Anti-Aging Face Wipes. They clean off makeup easily, I don't make a mess of myself or the sink, and they have anti-aging benefits and leave my face feeling smooth and clean before bed.
In conclusion, these organic beauty products are perfect for long days in the kitchen, days lounging at home, or a night out with friends. So, now go forth – update your shower, make up bag, medicine cabinet, and beach bag with the best organic beauty products!
