Spiritbeautylounge.com is one of the web's loveliest destinations for natural beauty, and that's all thanks to eco-conscious, ingredient-savvy and stylish owner Spirit Demerson. I'm thrilled to share a list of Spirit's must-have natural and organic beauty products, all available in her online boutique. Spirit has tried tons of products to find the absolute best, so I don't take her suggestions lightly. In fact, after perusing her list, I can't wait to get my hands on the natural deodorant she recommends!
Here are Spirit's beauty essentials, plus her thoughts about each product...
"I don’t use sunscreen every day but if I’m going to be out or in a window for more than 30 minutes, I use this. Without it I get tons of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles on my face and neck. It also happens to actually be great for your skin too."
"Put this in your emergency kit! Surprisingly this works much more gently but even faster than your drugstore zit-zappers. I’ve used it on 'shiners' and it clears them up overnight."
"I take this anywhere I travel because it takes the place of about 5 different hair, skin, and body products to soften, hydrate and balance whether you’re dry or oily…I always treat my hair with it before swimming or sunbathing or I’ll use it on my face before going out into the cold to prevent dryness."
"This product is the savior for women everywhere who still hadn’t found a product that would prevent underarm wetness and odor without aluminum! Until I found this I was still secretly using a drugstore brand – my last eco-beauty sin!"
"If you use lip balm, you certainly ingest it. That’s why I love this one that’s Certified Organic, smells naturally delicious, and is safe enough to eat."
"When I don’t have the patience for makeup but my face needs a pick-me-up, a touch of Living Luminizer on the lids, cheekbones and nose gives me that post-yoga glow."
"I could spend hours playing with makeup if I had the time but since I’m so busy, I love products like this one that are so easy to use, you can’t mess up. I use these on my lips and cheeks to perk-up my face when I’m on the go."
Time to go shopping!
