Natural Body Care That Feels Like Self-Love
1. Annemarie Gianni Skin Care
For a happy, healthy, glowing face, I can’t recommend Annmarie Gianni Skin Care enough. Their handcrafted, organic and wildcrafted skin care line includes natural plant extracts, high antioxidant plant and seed oils, aromatherapy, and ingredients that are basically a joy to read.
The first time I used Annmarie Gianni’s face wash and oil, I was hooked and I haven’t turned back.
Here's what I use:
- Aloe Herb Cleanser: A hydrating, herb-infused facial cream cleanser for all skin types that leaves my face feeling squeaky clean yet, surprisingly, not dry. Key ingredients are aloe vera, coconut oil, calendula, and lemon essential oil.
- Anti-Aging Serum: A versatile, aloe vera-based hydrating facial serum that provides active nutrients for all skin types. Hydrating, firming, soothing, and refreshing. Key ingredients are Rose Distillate, Life Everlasting Flowers, Buddleja extract, and hyaluronic acid.
- Herbal Facial Oil: A lightweight moisturizer that nourishes normal and combination skin with a gentle and calming blend of skin-enriching oils like tamanu, passion fruit seed, and buriti fruit. It smells lovely, feels lovely, and doesn’t leave my face oily. Key ingredients are grapeseed oil, tamanu oil, echinacea, and chamomile.
- Neroli Toning Mist: A delicate aloe vera infusion hydrates, softens, balances, and enhances absorption of the serum and oil. I’m in love with the sweet, orange-blossom aroma. Key Ingredients are aloe vera, aspen bark extract, and neroli essential oil.
- Antioxidant Lip Balm: A super-softening, all-natural moisturizing balm with antioxidant-rich, omega-heavy fruit oils. Key ingredients are cocoa butter, sea buckthorn fruit oil, buriti fruit oil, and cocoa extract.
2. Morrocco Method Hair Care
If you’re on the hunt for totally natural hair products, try Morrocco Method.
Raw, vegan, gluten-free, fair-trade, non-toxic, non-allergenic, and honest, Morrocco Method’s line of hair care is safe for everyone, including children.
Their system is based on the five elements, and you’re encouraged to rotate all of the shampoos, conditioners, and other products to get the full effect. I went all out for my first purchase and bought a big family of goodies. Haven't looked back.
It took a couple months to adjust to the all-natural treatment, but it was worth the wait. My hair is softer, my scalp is less dry, and I feel so good about what's going on my body.
Here are my favorite MM products:
- Zen Detox Hair & Scalp Therapy is a gentle detox that lifts heavy metals and other pollutants that build up as a result of chemical processing.
I rotate all 5 shampoos:
- Apple Cider Vinegar is the most powerful for flushing out debris and oil buildup
- Earth Essence features French clays to promote fuller hair.
- Pine Shale is great for dry, itchy scalp.
- Sea Essence with algae, spirulina, kelp and marine proteins.
- Heavenly Essence with natural botanicals, herbs, and marine proteins.
- I rotate both conditioners:
- I rotate both leave-in conditioners:
- Euro Oil is a blend of olive, avocado, and jojoba oils that makes for a great for deep conditioning treatment for the hair and scalp; a tiny drop goes a long way.
- Curl Power is a rich and hydrating treat that defines, elongates, and increases the hang-time of natural curls.
- Blood of the Dragon Styling Gel controls and conditions, and can be used on dry or wet hair (which is nice). It’s light enough for fly-aways and strong enough for unruly lioness hair like mine.
- Feng Shea Facial Scrub soothes and softens skin, lessens fine expression lines and contributes to a glowing appearance.
- Scalp Massager & Invigorator increases blood circulation for fuller, more radiant hair.
And they don't test on animals. Yay, bunnies!
