Anna talks all things natural beauty with Pink Moon Daily's Estelle Hayes, including how to start the transition to healthier beauty products (hint: start with Fragrance Free), how NSNG represents freedom, why anti-bacterial sanitizers are no bueno, and how some actresses are embracing natural beauty on the red carpet.
Below is a list of links and notes from Estelle herself, plus some affiliate links Anna created if you are interested in purchasing these products via amazon:
"I really like this brand (I've used the tinted moisturizer, face oil, and blush stick and have heard great things about the CC cream and liquid foundation."
"I have on one of their lipsticks and I LOVE it! They are the gold standard in clean lip products. I would highly recommend trying one of their colors to replace one of your go-to brands. Almost all mainstream lipsticks have been tested positive for lead and petrochemicals and a host of other crap you don't want anywhere near your body."
"I love a lot of their products. Bonus, they have a store in West Hollywood so you can go sample everything yourself before buying. I use their lip gloss (nice colors). I use their face moisturizer and eye cream every single day and love it. Also, their lavender hand cream is really nice. Some of their scents can be a little strong so I highly recommend testing before you buy. But they are a super clean brand and growing into a mainstream retail presence which makes it easier to sell my friends on switching to natural products."
O.k. we didn't get to this during our talk, but I cannot recommend it enough. I think of this brand as a gateway drug to clean living. It's pretty affordable, easy to find online or in Whole Foods and it's great for the entire family. My husband, daughter and I use the shampoo (Acure Organics, Shampoo, Pure Mint + Echinacea Stem Cell, 8 fl oz) and conditioner, I use the cleansing gel (ACURE Facial Cleansing Gel Superfruit + Chlorella, 4oz) for my face (it's nice and mild), I love their face oil as well.
Look, Jessica Alba's company HONEST BEAUTY makes adorable eco-friendly diapers!
And finally, another good brand for sunscreen: Suntegrity Skincare - Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen & Primer, Broad Spectrum SPF 30
