REN Cosmetics

I have recently discovered a natural skin care that I am loving called REN. They use bio active ingredients and their products contain no synthetic fragrance, petrochemicals, sulfate detergents, synthetic colors, animal ingredients or parabens.  And, of course, no testing on animals. I've been using their Frankincense & Boswellia Serrata Revitalising Repair Cream for my night moisturizer and I'm hooked. My skin looks and feels great and the product smells amazing.

More about the product:
"A cream high in bio actives that is formulated to moisturise, nourish and help rejuvenate the skin, particularly at night. Boswellic acid from Boswellia Serrata Bark works in harmony with resinoid from Frankincense to relax facial muscles and ease micro-contractions, helping to reduce and prevent the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. In addition, vitamin C and citroflavonoids from Calabrian Oranges and vitamins A and E boost collagen formation and cell renewal to firm and repair the skin."

Lavanilla natural deodorant

Another recent discovery in natural skin care has been Lavanilla's The Healthy Deodorant. It's definitely the best natural deodorant I've tried to date. It lasts longer than most and it smells great. I've been using their vanilla coconut scent. I know that when it comes to deodorant it's one of the most difficult switches to natural products. It's mid-summer in DC and so-far so-good! It contains no aluminum, paraben and no propolene glycol.
