Natural Beauty Faves: November 2011

I’m so happy November is here! I’m already planning my Thanksgiving Day menu (have I mentioned that I love to cook?) and all of the leftover inventions that go along with a massive holiday meal. Yum. November, I love you! And speaking of love, there’s a new batch of favorite products on my sidebar that I’m excited to share with you:

    • Una Biologicals Luxe Face Cream. I’ve written about this magical little face cream before, but I can’t say enough about it. The ingredients are really pure, it’s super emollient and just a little dab will keep your whole face moisturized and smooth. It’s too heavy for me in the summer (except in the undereye area, where I’ve used this with great results), but in the wintertime, my skin just drinks this stuff up. My husband pointed out a few days ago that after I apply this stuff, I always make a really big happy sigh. Simply put? It feels good.
    • Shea Moisture Lavender and Wild Orchid Body Oil. I’ve stopped using body lotion entirely in favor of body oil—and this stuff, which I discovered at my local Target, is my latest favorite. It’s not expensive, it has lovely ingredients and it keeps my legs and feet and elbows from getting dry. (I’m planning to write a Beauty Obsession post about this lovely little oil and how I use it instead of body lotion. Stay tuned.)
    • Dr. Hauschka Hand Cream. I can’t believe this hand cream hasn’t made my list until now—it was one of the first natural products I tried, and I was amazed. It’s perfect for anyone who works at a computer all day, because it doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy or slippery, so you can use a dab (a pea-sized amount is all you need), rub it into your hands, and then get right back to tapping away on your keyboard. It’s on the pricier side at $24.95, but it lasts a really long time, and it’s on sale right now for $19.96. I’m definitely going to snap up a new bottle…
    • Mommy-to-be Milk Bath. OK, so…I’m not a mommy or a mommy-to-be, but I do love my big jacuzzi tub—and I also love a good milk bath. This USDA certified organic milk bath comes in a powder with essential oils of lavender, lemon and sandalwood that dissolves in warm water…ahhhh.

What products are you loving this month? I’d love to hear about your favorites! —Aleigh

    I just cleaned out my bathroom cabinets and realized that I have no makeup! I’m keeping my eye out for more of your cosmetic faves to get ideas! Can’t wait to see what you love next — Perhaps a tinted moisturizer? Hint, hint;)

    Dr. Hauschka hand cream is a very good product, but I guess I found better to treat hands… It’s a french brand called Photonorm… They have some balm which seams really great and all certified organic… I’ll try them and post a review on my blog in few weeks…
