makepuWelcome to our every-so-often series of questions to discover how you, our readers, live a super interesting, healthy life. We totally invite you to dish on your habits, preferences, and know-how in the Comments, and we may even use our favorite ones in an up coming article! This week we asked about your beauty product faves:

After reading through your many responses (which you can still see in the Comments, below), it became clear that Well+Good readers are serious about finding healthy beauty products that really perform.

And while many of you seem to have figured out cleansers and moisturizers, it’s makeup, haircare, and deodorant that seem to be presenting bigger challenges.

Many of you mentioned eye shadow primer, eye shadow, and eyeliner, which means we’ll be delving into the best alternatives soon. (In the meantime, check out these expert tips on how to make your natural makeup last longer. )

But the most popular responses by far were mascara and deodorant.

Since we’ve tried about a billion natural options for both of those, here are a few helpful stories that break down some healthy alternatives to the conventional products you love:
