Natural Beauty Faves: December 2011

Is someone playing a practical joke on me? How is it already December?! This month is shaping up to be super busy and super fun—but I think I’m going to need a big nap on New Year’s Day. Here are the products I’m loving this month. They’ll be over in the sidebar all month long.

  • Alima Pure Organic Nourishing Lipbalm. I may have a lip balm and gloss obsession: Right now there are no less than six different kinds in my purse! I couldn’t resist buying one after including it in the Indigo+Canary Holiday Gift Guide. It’s definitely a balm and not a gloss, but it’s also super emollient and gives my lips more protection than a gloss, which is especially important when it’s cold outside. (I have the Holly Berry shade.)
  • Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil. This is the magical oil that makes Trilogy so products so amazing, all by itself. My skin has been freaking out a little bit lately, so I’ve been using my rosehip oil as an ultra-healing facial moisturizer in combination with my Una Biologicals Luxe Face Cream, and I’m already seeing a difference. It’s also perfect for helping to fade scars and stretch marks, and I wish I’d taken before pictures, because I could swear the little crow’s feet around my eyes are starting to lessen.
  • Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Jumbo Lash Mascara. This mascara has been my go-to for the past few weeks—I decided to try it once I ran out of the not-very-natural mascara I needed to use up. (Yep. I’m not perfect when it comes to using all-clean products, especially when I receive them as gifts.) Mascara is the one product I rarely go without—so I headed to the drug store hoping to find something in the passable category, and came home with this. It’s affordable, easy to find, and gets the job done. I think the tube is cute, but the one thing I would change is the leaf-shaped handle…it can be a little tricky to hold on to.
  • Bragg Organic Apple Cider Vinegar. I finally had a chance to try out Julie’s apple cider vinegar rinse trick, and it works! My hair smelled a little vinegar-y when it was wet, but as soon as it dried, the vinegar smell disappeared and my hair was definitely shinier.
