Natural beauty faves: What we’re loving right now (April 2013)

Natural and organic beauty lines are booming, and we’re testing tons of products every month. Here’s what’s what we’re loving right now.

Tata Harper lip treatment

Natural and organic beauty lines are booming, and while we love to cover the beauty obsessions of others, we test tons of products every month that we become obsessed with, too. Here’s what’s what we’re loving right now.

In Fiore detox

Tata Harper Plumping Lip Treatment in Be Adored ($28, pictured above) A trifecta of lip treatments: “Be Adored” plumps without stinging, contains nourishing plant-based ingredients and antioxidants (it feels just like I’ve slathered my lips with a balm), and has pretty rose tint, so I can wear it to a workout without looking made up. Handbag staple!

In Fiore Visage Vitale Skin Boosting Catalyste ($30 for the travel size) Using this detoxifying elixir daily for a week gets my pores to give up a winter’s worth of gunk (a not-so-pretty but short process), and it re-sets my skin with exfoliating enyzmes that brighten. It’s the equivalent of putting my skin on a juice cleanse, and the travel size comes with enough product to do the trick for me.

natural nail polish

Etoile Greenwich St. Soiree Collection ($18) This new New York City-based nail polish brand sprinkles diamond dust into its 5-free formulations, giving your nails a luxe yet subtle sparkle. And its newest collection for spring is as hot as the neighborhood its named for—you’ll be set for spring once you paint on Pink Panache or Fizzy Cucumber.


The Honest Co. Organic Lip Balm Trio ($9.95) I’m super picky about lip balm, and natural brands rarely deliver results. But these super-clean balms from Jessica Alba’s Honest Co. are truly nourishing, and the Sweet Orange Vanilla tastes exactly like a creamsicle.

Beautycounter Everyday AM Hydrating Cream ($38) This unscented face cream, made with aloe and organic coconut oil, is moisturizing and gentle. Just what you’d expect from the new non-toxic line. It’s also free of the the overly active ingredients that tend to freak out my sensitive skin.
