Living an Eco-Friendly life: Buying cosmetics Part Deux


In an effort to keep down the hazards to the environment and, I have to admit it humbly, keep my skin happy and my body healthy, I decided a few years ago I wasn’t going to buy any cosmetics containing carcinogenic, endocrine disruptors, or any other toxic material anymore. Finding actual products that were beneficial and good for my aging skin (because unfortunately, skin texture at 50 is not what it was at 20), were not tested on animals (there had to be other ways to test products), were produced with fair-trade ingredients, and were definitely not causing any harm to our environment became my goal. It took some time, but then, I discovered Andalou Naturals who is also a sponsor of the Non-GMO PROJECT www.nongmoproject.org. Mind you; I am not stating that GMO products are altogether bad. In some instances, and when used in reasonable and well-thought ways, they may play a beneficial role. I do, however, not believe that is the case for cosmetics. That is a discussion for another day.


My focus today will deal with facial moisturizers from a company I discovered a few years ago. I am talking about Andalou Naturals, a company dedicated to [Sic] create Non-GMO, good-for-all formulas with standards that reflect the very best in each and every one of us. ₂ Visit their website and try out some of their products. You will not regret it. In my lifetime I have tried many products. Some were expensive; some were not. Some were good, some were awful. Andalou Naturals products are fantastic. My skin feels hydrated, plump, and fresh. My basic daily regimen includes washing (Duh), priming, and a simple daily moisturizer from their Age Defying Collection. I switch between the Perfecting Cream and their Lift and Firm Cream. At night the Night Repair Cream allows my skin to regenerate and look radiant in the morning. Once a week I use the Fruit and Enzyme Mask. And that’s it. Clean and simple. It works wonders.😉

Many kudos for a great product ! 😍 😍 😍 😍 😍 Seriously worthwhile to try!!
