These are products that I personally use and enjoy. I add to this list quite often so check back!
Honey, turmeric, turmeric….. oh my!
Cocokind‘s entire line. I have been using all of their products for quite sometime and I honestly have 0 complaints. They have masks/chapsticks/oil cleansers/rosewater toners and much more. They are continuously adding new amazing items that just continue to surprise me. I. Am. A. Cocokind. Addict. It has helped my rosacea as well. A+++++++ for me.
You can read my reviews on a bunch of their products here.

Primally Pure Sensitive Deodorant – I have tried to make my own deodorant for years and can never get it perfect for me. Too much baking soda = irritated armpits for days. I’ve also tried a ton of other natural deodorants over the years and none of them worked the way I wanted them to. This Primally Pure has ingredients like Organic Arrowroot Powder, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Tallow from Grass-Fed Cows, Organic Beeswax, a small amount of Baking Soda, White Kaolin Clay, and Essential Oils. NO Parabens, fragrances or fillers. Not tested on animals. If you are looking for a healthy alternative to the nasty conventional deodorants out there, definitely try Primally Pure’s. It is a bit pricey but there are other natural ones that are more expensive & don’t work as well. BUT always remember, everyone’s body is different – just because this works great for me, doesn’t mean it will for you.
Vanilla Bean shower gel from 100% Pure – If you like vanilla, you will enjoy this shower gel. All of 100% Pure’s products are…. 100% PURE! 😀 Completely free of all harmful toxins, 100% PURE® is a healthy and pure line of nourishing personal care items made only with the highest quality ingredients. 100% natural and 100% cruelty-free, all products are completely, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins so you don’t have to ever worry about using this greatness every single day — sometimes twice a day if you are anything like me and always want to smell like vanilla hehe.
Oh, while I am at it, talking about Vanilla yumminess – they also have a Vanilla Bean Body butter. I put this on right after the shower – ugh, can’t even describe it. I am not a big fan of thicker “body butters” except the ones from 100% Pure. No greasy yuckiness on your skin. And they are always having sales – sign up for their emails and you will never miss a sale they are having! Even if you are looking for make-up, nail polish, bath stuff, gentle baby products – they have it all. I also use their mascara – and only theirs (it even smells good!). Here, you can find other products from 100% pure that I enjoy xo
Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser – I cannot say enough good things about this cleanser. If you have never heard of Tata Harper, it is all 100% natural and non toxic. The scent is amazing – I mean, you aren’t going to want to eat it or anything but you will love it. This is a make up remover along with cleansing your face. It purifies while helping to nourish the skin with Beta Carotene, Vitamins A, C, E, Lycopene and Omega 3. The gentle formula thoroughly cleanses skin with a silky blend of biocompatible oils and esters that dissolves makeup and daily impurities from pores. I have been using it for awhile on my super sensitive skin and haven’t had any issues. This oil cleanser leaves your skin so smooth, you will not need to apply any moisturizers after.
Tata’s Be True Lip treatment – Another awesome product from Tata Harper! It has lipoAmino Acid which helps plump the appearance of vertical lines and increase volume for a fuller look, date Palm Extract that boosts collagen and rhubarb, Acai and Green Tea oils infuse the lips with rich antioxidants for environmental protection and deep hydration. This also smells good. The website has Free Shipping on orders over $40 along with 3 samples with each purchase. If you don’t like your purchase, they are very nice at Tata and it is quite easy to return/exchange.
Eating Evolved coconut butters and chocolates – “Chocolate. It’s food, not candy” is their motto and so true. All of the products are gluten free, dairy free, vegan, and soy free. I am a coconut fiend but haven’t been too into chocolate honestly, until I tried their products.
– Their roasted coconut butter = AMAZING. I eat it right from the jar.
– Like hot chocolate? You have to try their Hot chocolate +collagen. (this hot chocolate is seasonal)
Y.S. Eco Bee Farms RAW Honey – DEE-LISH and healthy – We go through the big 3 pounder within 2-3 weeks or so and am always buying a few at a time. We use it in tea every single night, in our daily turmeric drink we make (I’ll have a recipe for you soon ;)), by ITSELF… yes, it tastes yummy all by itself as well.
Starwest Botanicals Organic Turmeric – I have tried many different turmeric powders over the years and this is one of my favorites to buy in bulk. I buy the 2 or 3 pack because, again, like the honey – this is gone super quick in my house. Remember – ALWAYS heat turmeric prior to using and add a little bit of black pepper to activate all the great benefits! Black pepper enhances bioavailability of turmeric. One problem with curcumin is its low levels of bioavailability. Most of the curcumin that is ingested gets metabolized before it can get absorbed. Pipeline (in pepper) is said to help make curcumin more bioavailable. (You can read more about Turmeric here.)
Rishi Turmeric tea – this is a tea I drink EVERY SINGLE night. You can add other teas with it, like peppermint, vanilla or lemongrass and don’t forget your honey!! The other ingredients in this turmeric tea are organic ginger root, organic licorice root, organic turmeric, organic lemongrass, organic orange peel, essential lemon and orange oils.
Vital Proteins Marine Collagen – Everyone needs collagen in their life. This marine collagen is non-gmo & wild caught. What is collagen, you may ask? It is the most abundant protein in the body and it is really the “glue that holds your body together” and we lose it as we get older.
Why do we need collagen?
- #1 – supports joint health
- Promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails
- promotes healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems
All of Vital Proteins Beauty Waters are delish. All you have to do is add them to a glass of water. The Lavender Lemon is really tasty and the one that I currently am using at home 🙂
Philosophie Coconut Butters – raw, gluten-free, 100% organic, fair-trade. Ingredients are coconut & their powder superfood blends (below). I eat them right out of the jars with a spoon 😉. There are 3 kinds: Cacao Magic Coconut Butter, Green Dream Coconut Butter, Berry Bliss Coconut Butter. The cacao magic is coconut chocolate yumminess. The green dream I add to eggs and veggies while cooking them.
Philosophie Superfoods – raw, gluten-free, 100% organic, fair-trade. There are 3 different kinds: Green Dream, Cacao Magic, and Berry Bliss. There are ingredients like hemp seeds, maca, chia seeds, spirulina, acas, goji, camu camu, reishi. You cannot get any better than these superfood blends. Can add them to sooo many things (yogurt, smoothies, oatmeal, cereal, baked goods, eggs, veggies….Be Creative!)
Bonafide Provisions Bone Broths – Organic slow simmered Bone Broth. Bone broth is super rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline. The collagen heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation.
Siete Foods Grain Free Tortilla Chips – Their chips are made with cassava flour, which is a root vegetable with a clean and neutral flavor. Cassava is an anti-inflammatory and gluten-free, and actually aids in the digestive process. I buy 6 bags of the Sea Salt ones at a time. Most of the time I eat almost an entire bag in one sitting (shhhhh).
For all the pet lovers
