The biggest complaint I hear from my readers about switching over to healthier, natural products is the cost. I get it! Sometimes you have other things to spend that money on, and your beauty products just aren’t that high a priority. So I get really excited when I discover effective, organic beauty products that are also affordable and accessible.
I’ve had my eye on Nourish Organic Skincare since I first spotted the line at Whole Foods. I noticed a full spectrum of natural beauty products at a super affordable price, and was really impressed by the list of natural, vegan, organic ingredients and cruelty-free ethos. So when I got the chance to try the products for myself, I jumped on it.
I found the Moisturizing Cream Face Cleanser ($13.99) and Body Wash ($9.99) to be light, refreshing, cleansers that were super gentle and non-drying. The face wash is loaded with detoxifying, cooling and balancing cucumber, aloe and watercress, and moisturizing coconut, sesame, sunflower and neem oils, and comes in a fragrance-free formulation that’s great for sensitive skin. The body wash has a similar base, with the addition of vitamin E, coconut milk, jasmine and marshmallow. It’s low sudsing, and left my body squeaky clean without drying it out. I love the natural Almond Vanilla scent, but am excited to try the other delicious scents like Lavender Mint, Fresh Fig, and Lemon Thyme.
After cleansing, I loved using the Rejuvenating Rose Hip and Rosewater Body Oil Mist ($19.99) which deeply hydrates skin with essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins. It’s super lightweight, and left my skin soft, supple, and with a light lovely sheen after use. The Renewing and Cooling Eye Treatment ($19.99) with avocado and argan oil is a daily standby for me, with it’s gentle, lightweight hydration and uniquely cooling metal applicator that de-puffs tired eyes.
At night, I love smoothing on the Replenishing Argan Oil Balm ($19.99) on any dry spots on my face and body — my chin, elbows, back of my arms with the delicious smelling roll on. Formulated with sweet orange, palmarosa, and cupuacu, this balm is amazing for evening out skin tone, improving skin’s elasticity, and most importantly, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Love love love it.
I also like the Organic Aluminum-Free Deodorant Cream ($9.99), which smells great, rolls on smooth, and kept me dry on warm summer days, though admittedly, I needed something a little more potent for super hot sweaty days. It comes in several yummy scents, for both men and women, and is completely safe to use on the delicate underarm area, even during pregnancy!
And guess what?! I’m giving away the whole set of products above, a value of $89.99!
