Favourite Natural Products Tag – Foundation, Blush, Deodorant, and MORE!

favourite natural beauty products

Today, I thought I’d do a very fun tag, which I saw on the VenusInFurs channel a while ago. It’s called What Are Your Favourite Natural Products? Nobody really tagged me to do it, but I thought it would be fun to do it anyway, to maybe give you ideas on what you could try in your skincare and bodycare routine or what kind of ingredients you could steal from your kitchen. That should be fun, right?

Of course, let me know if you like this kind of things and if you want me to do more tags in the future.

So let’s get started!

Question 1. What’s Your Favourite Natural Deodorant?

It’s a Crystal deodorant stick. It’s in travel size, so it’s really convenient if you’re travelling around. It’s basically just a stick that you’re supposed to put under running water and then rub it on your armpits. Super easy, right? But it’s broken right now, so that makes it slightly more complicated. Don’t ask me how I did it but I dropped it on the floor. Tiled floor. And it broke into lots of small pieces.

I found out about this typo of deodorant from a couple of viewers after I posted my What’s In My Primal Bathroom video. I asked you guys which natural deodorants I should try, and a couple of you mentioned crystal deodorant sticks. I’m really grateful to you for that because I really like it. So thank you, guys, so much for telling me about it.

Question 2. What’s Your Favourite Natural Tinted Moisturizer, CC Cream or BB Cream?

I’m really sorry to disappoint you, but I don’t use any of those. You see, whenever something is in liquid form, it will expire, get mouldy and full of bacteria, so anything liquid needs to have preservatives in it. That’s something I’m really against.

I try to stay away from anything liquid because it will never be as natural as something in dry form. I try to use all the products in powder form.

Question 3. What’s Your Favourite Natural Foundation?

You guys might already know that my favourite makeup brand is Lily Lolo. I mention it whenever anyone asks me what kind of makeup I use. I’ve been using their mineral foundation powder for a couple of years, and I love it.

Before this, I used to use conventional mineral makeup brands, such as Bare Minerals or Laura Mercier. But the problem with those is that they have something called bismuth oxychloride, which clogs pores for a lot of people and causes itching for others.

Whenever I used to get hot or sweaty with the conventional powder on, I could feel my face really itchy and it was really irritating. I hated the feeling. I’m not sure if it was giving me breakouts (because everything was at that point in my life), but it was definitely very itchy.

I love Lily Lolo foundation because it doesn’t contain bismuth oxychloride, and it’s as pure as a mineral powder can be. Its base is zinc oxide, which in addition to covering up and protecting you from the sun, always helps heal the skin.

If you’re wondering, I use the shade called Popcorn at the moment, but it’s already getting slightly light for me, so in the summer, when I’m more tanned, I’ll move on to the shade called Warm Honey. The Lily Lolo shade selection is really cool, there is something for every single skin tone, and I don’t know, I just really like this brand.

If you haven’t tried it yet, I think you should definitely give it a try. It’s awesome!

I purchase it from FeelUnique simply because they offer free worldwide shipping, and that’s super important for someone living in the middle of nowhere (me!). But if you’re unfamiliar with the shades and want to try tester sizes first, you can order them straight from the Lily Lolo website. That’s what I did at the beginning, too – I ordered four testers of four different shades of foundation, and I only ordered the full size products once I was totally sure about the shade and about the fact that the foundation worked well for my skin. If you have a crazily sensitive skin, you’ll understand me, I’m sure.

Question 4. What’s Your Favourite Natural Sunscreen?

I actually have two favourites If you read my blogpost about natural sun protection, you might already know that I’m not a big fan of conventional chemical sunscreens. In fact, I don’t use them at all. I believe they do more harm than good.

If I’m in the sun for a long time, I use either coconut oil or shea butter. Coconut oil has an equivalent of SPF4-10 and shea butter is SPF6-8. That’s perfectly fine for my skin. Coconut oil is lighter, and shea butter is for days when I need more nourishment. Both of those offer wonderful natural sun protection, and I highly recommend them.

Question 5. What’s Your Favourite Natural Setting Spray?

I don’t actually use setting sprays because, since I started using the Oil Cleansing Method, I haven’t really had any problems with makeup sliding off my face or excess oiliness. But, in the past, I used to use rosewater, and it was really good.

So if you are on the lookout for a natural setting spray, definitely get some rosewater or lavender water, which is actually really good, too. They’re both really soothing and moisturizing, they smell good, so I’m sure you’re going to enjoy them.

Question 6. What’s Your Favourite Natural Bronzer?

Of course, surprise surprise! It’s from the same brand, Lily Lolo, and it’s in shade Bondi Bronze.

They do three different bronzer shades, and I have two (Bondi Bronze and South Beach). Bondi Bronze is the darker darker one, with lovely gold hints. It’s the right colour for me now that it’s summer and I’m more tanned, but in the winter I’ll use the other one.

The top swatch is for Bondi Bronze. The bottom swatch is the blush I talk about below.

You might be wondering why the container is so small. It’s just because it’s a tester! I got it at the same time as the foundation, which was around 18 months ago. The foundation is sill three quarters full, and the bronzer is still kind of half full. The tester cost me just a couple of euros or something like that. Awesome! It’s still going strong because it’s so pigmented that you need very little of it.

It’s definitely the best bronzer I’ve ever used, so I think you should give it a try! There’s no risk as you can just get a tester and test it out for yourself before you get the full-size product.

Question 7. What’s Your Favourite Natural Blush?

OfΒ  course, my favourite blush is a mineral one. I just love powder products! However, it’s from a different brand. It’s from an American brand called Lumiere. Unfortunately, I’ve just realized that the brand doesn’t exist anymore. πŸ™ It’s a real shame because the products were great.

When I placed an order a couple of years ago, I got a few different products and shades in tester sizes. I also got a few different blushes, and this one is my favourite – it’s called Hibiscus. It’s a beautiful pink with purple undertones, it doesn’t have much shimmer, just a tiny bit, it’s very subtle, and it’s beautiful both in the winter and in the summer. It’s truly versatile and goes with anything.

Lily Lolo has a similar shade called Surfer Girl. It should be quite a close dupe of the one I have.

Question 8. What’s Your Favourite Natural Toner?

Moroccan rosewater for acne free skin - part of my 100% natural skincare routine.

I bet you already know what I’m going to say. Of course it’s rosewater! πŸ™‚ I also tried lavender water in the past, and I liked it almost as much. So lavender water and rose water would be my favourite toners. But, as I’m obsessed with anything that smells like rose, rosewater has to be my favourite.

By the way, I’ve also tried witch hazel again recently, and I really didn’t like it. I still find it really drying, I don’t recommend it to anyone with dryness or acne problems.

Rosewater is definitely the way to go! It’s also really affordable compared to most conventional high-end toners.

Question 9. What’s Your Favourite Natural Body Moisturizer?

Lately, it’s been coconut oil. I’m a bit of a coconut freak right now: I use it on everything in my body inside and out. I use it on my body, on my hair, on my face, on my hands, on my cuticles, on my feet – it’s wonderful for everything. It smells amazing, it gets absorbed super quickly and doesn’t leave any oily residue.

It’s also very good for those who are struggling with body acne or eczema.

Question 10. What’s Your Favourite Natural Shampoo And Conditioner?

I experiment with a lot of different things for my hair, and that includes a lot of natural hair washing methods. I’ve already written about no-poo using baking soda and vinegar, and about using soapnuts for your hair. I’ve also been experimenting with Indian herbs, using apple cider vinegar rinses alone, and also natural shampoo bars.

So more or less every month I try something different, and this month I’ve been trying something extremely good. It’s a natural shampoo and conditioner from a brand called Green People. I love this brand because it’s super natural, and I was already using their Styling Gel (which is great, by the way).

When I was looking for a natural shampoo and conditioner, I looked at the ingredients of all the different brands, and I didn’t manage to find anything more natural than Green People. I got the Irritated Scalp Shampoo and Daily Aloe Conditioner. The conditioner is 92% organic. The ingredients are simply amazing.

I’m impressed! They don’t leave my hair dry at all. Moreover, they sorted out my itchy scalp and dandruff problem, which I had after trying a different diet.

So if you’re looking for an easier way to wash your hair, something ready made without having to mix baking soda and vinegar or prepare any other hair rinses, give Green People shampoos and conditioners a try. They’re wonderful. They’re also really affordable – I think I only paid 13 euros for each. The shampoo is very concentrated, it equals to 600ml of normal shampoo, so it should last forever. I can definitely confirm that it’s true because I’ve been using very little of it.

So I guess that’s it! I’ve answered all the questions of this tag. I hope I’ve given you some ideas on what you could use in your skincare or bodycare routine. If you’d like to share any of your favourite natural products or things, please let me know in the comments.

  1. hey there, I loooove your blog and can spend hours here πŸ™‚ Reading this, I was just wondering about your crystal deodorant: I have stopped using mine, cause it contains “Ammonium Alum” (it’s a German brand), too, and is thus supposed to not be good either (or am I mixing something up here?)…? What does yours contain?

    Greetings from Holland!

    • Hi Katha! Glad you’re enjoying my blog. πŸ™‚ In fact, you’re right about the crystal deodorant. I’ve also since read more about it and have stopped using it. I’ve found two great recipes for DIY deodorants, which if all goes well should be up tomorrow on the blog and on my YouTube channel. Perfect timing. πŸ™‚ xx

  2. For me, I use vinegar to lighten age spots. You can mix equal parts of lemons and vinegar daily to the age spots. You can also use this to get rid of blemishes just add some water on it and put do the same thing.
