Natasha’s favourite natural skincare products:

Cleansers

Living LibationsBest Skin Ever (My personal favourite oil cleanser. I recommend Seabuckthorn Best Skin Ever for normal, combination, or acne-prone skin, and Rose Best Skin Ever for dry or maturing skin) – Full video & blog review, click here.

Tata HarperPurifying Cleanser (A refreshing gentle soap-free cleanser. Best for normal, oily, or combination skin, and great for hot climates as well).

Tata Harper Nourishing Oil Cleanser (This oil cleanser is truly nourishing. Great for gently removing makeup and as a daily cleanser. The formula is moisturizing, and leaves your skin feeling plumped and supple).

OskiaRenaissance Cleansing Gel (A luxurious cleansing balm. Especially good for milia-prone skin, acne scars, and sun damaged skin. Most suitable for normal, combination and oily skin).

MahaloThe Unveil Cleanser Melt Concentrate (Love the benefits of oil cleansing but not the oil residue? This cleansing balm is just for you! It goes on like balm, nourishing like an oil, but rinses right off with water. An excellent makeup remover and non-stripping cleanser, and the cacoa citrus scent is absolutely divine).

Tammy Fender – Cleansing Milk (Milk cleansers are great for dry, sensitive, and irritated skin. This one in particular is lightweight and extremely gentle, yet thoroughly cleanses all at the same time).

Smooth Raw Honey – I’m a big fan of using smooth raw honey as a cleanser, especially for younger skin that is acne-prone (great if your in your 20s or early thirties, or younger). Best to use a local organic smooth honey or a Manuka Honey.

 

Exfoliation

Drunk ElephantT.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum (A gentle AHA and BHA exfoliating blend. I recommend this gel serum for gentle exfoliation and resurfacing, fading hyperpigmentation and acne scars, and brightening your skin. For best results, I recommend using it on it’s own every night, or every other night. Always wear sunscreen when using this product) – Full video & blog review, click here.

Tata HarperRegenerating Cleanser (This physical exfoliant is soft and gentle, so it can be used more regularly than most scrubs to maintain smooth skin) – Full video & blog review, click here.

OskiaMicro Exfoliating Balm (This product exfoliates and moisturizes all at the same time leaving your skin super soft, bright and smooth. It can be coarse in texture, so best not to use on sensitive skin).

 

Toners

Odacité – Rose + Neroli Hydra-Vitalizing Treatment Mist (Soothing and hydrating aloe-based toning mist).

Annmarie Skin CareNeroli Toning Mist (Gorgeous scent and great for extra hydration).

 

Serums

Living LibationsSoothSayer Serum (All-in-one moisturizing serum and facial oil, especially good for soothing inflamed or broken out skin, fading acne scars and hyperpigmentation, and eliminating redness or irritation. This jojoba-based serum is particularly therapeutic for acne-prone skin, it’s lightweight and absorbs beautifully).

Living LibationsRoseGlow Serum (All-in-one moisturizing serum and facial oil. RoseGlow Serum is my favorite for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, plumping up the skin, and giving it a radiant glow. I recommend this serum for maturing skin).

Annmarie Skin CareCitrus Stem Cell Serum/Repair Serum (A brightening and moisturizing gel serum. The formula is non-oily and absorbs beautifully leaving your skin velvety soft).

 

Facial Oils

Annmarie Skin CareHerbal Facial Oil for Normal/Combination Skin (A good moisturizing oil that smells heavenly. I like to use this oil at night as an extra overnight moisturizing treatment).

Ila SpaFace Oil For Glowing Radiance (A soothing facial oil with an argan oil base. Non-comedeogenic, lightweight oil, and absorbs beautifully. This is one of the few oils I can comfortably wear during the day, as well as night).

Kahina Giving Beauty – Argan Oil (Argan oil is a non-comedogenic oil I find extremely safe for acne prone skin. This one in particular by Kahina Giving Beauty is the best pure Argan Oil I have found).

UMAAbsolute Anti-Aging Face Oil (Light yet extremely nourishing, now I know why UMA Oils is considered the queen of oils! This is a beautiful oil in scent and texture, softening your skin and smoothing fine lines).

 

Moisturizers

Tata Harper Clarifying Moisturizer (The best lightweight moisturizer I have found for oily and blemish-prone skin. This moisturizer softens and moisturizes the skin, plus reduces any redness or irritation, and has a matte finish. I like this as a day moisturizer, and also strongly recommend it for summer months, and hot/humid climates) – Full video & blog review, click here.

Tata HarperRepairative Moisturizer (I recommend this moisturizer for dry and maturing skin, and dry or cold climates. It deeply moisturizes and hydrates your skin, yet it’s very lightweight and absorbs easily).

OdacitéOleosome Time Release Delivery Creme (If moisture and hydration is what you need, this time release creme is perfect. The consistency is closer to being a lotion. It’s lightweight, super hydrating, and you can feel it keeping your skin moisturized and supple all day long. Suitable for all skin types).

Ila SpaDay Cream For Glowing Radiance (Over the years I have used jar after jar of this cream. It’s a soothing rich formula. In hot/humid climates I like using it as a nourishing night cream, but in cold or dry climates, you can use it both day and night).

 

Spot Treatments

Living LibationsZippity Dew Dab (An essential oil blend specifically formulated to speed up the healing of blemishes and cystic pimples) – Full video & blog review, click here.

Living LibationsDewDabSoothSayer Serum (This duo works particularly well for fading acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and marks left behind from acne and breakouts. For best results, every night add 1-2 drops of DewDab essential oil blend to the SoothSayer Serum, and apply to your face and neck. Over the course of a few weeks you should start seeing your skin tone even out, and marks and bumps fading).

VERDURA naturalternativesBlue Fairy Concentrate Facial Oil (Formulated for acne and oily skin, this facial oil is one of the best face oil and spot treatment I’ve used to decongest clogged pores and sooth broken out skin. You can use it as a spot treatment or as a facial oil – simultaneously it will moisturize, clarify, and treat problem skin) – Full blog & video review, click here.

Tea Tree Essential Oil (Use a small dab on pimples to speed up healing and reduce inflammation)

Lavender Essential Oil (Use a small dab on pimples to speed up healing and reduce inflammation)

 

Eye Creams & Lash Treatments

100% PureCoffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream (Great eye cream for reducing puffiness under the eye. It absorbs well and doesn’t have any oily residue, perfect as a day time eye cream and works well under makeup).

Living LibationsAll Seeing Eye Creme (Soothing and moisturizing eye cream that treats and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I like to keep this eye cream in the fridge, so it’s nice and cool upon application).

Annmarie Skin Care Anti-Aging Eye Cream (Fantastic eye cream for crepey and loose, lined skin under the eye. It’s a rich formula, so I recommend using it in the evenings as an overnight eye treatment).

UMAAbsolute Anti-Aging Eye Oil (Want to wake up in the morning without puffy eyes? Use this eye oil at night! I’ve noticed a massive difference using this eye oil, not only waking up without eye puffiness, but also smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles around my eyes. I like to use UMA Absolute Anti-Aging Eye Oil only at night, and during the day I will use an eye cream which works better under makeup and concealer).

Castor Oil – Every night I like to dab a drop of castor oil over the “crow’s feet” / outer-eye wrinkles, usually on top of my eye cream to seal in moisture. I also like to apply castor oil on my eyebrows and eyelashes as an overnight treatment (helps to keep them strong and full). An easy way to apply castor oil to lashes & eyebrows is buy castor oil already in a tube with a mascara wand for mess-free application.

 

Wrinkle Treatments & Anti-Aging

Tata HarperMoisturizing Mask (I absolutely love this moisturizing mask. This overnight mask will plump up your skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles. Every time I use this mask I see a significant reduction of lines and wrinkles on my skin. I especially love using it after flying, when my skin is in serious need of deep hydration and moisture).

Tata HarperRejuvenating Serum (This is a rich anti-aging serum. Great for softening and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, and giving maturing skin the extra moisture it needs to maintain elasticity and suppleness of the skin).

Living LibationsDewDab (This is a great wrinkle treatment. This essential oil blend is formulated to heal and fade acne scars and hyperpigmentation, but it’s as effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. For best results, dab a small drop of DewDab on wrinkles, or add a drop or two to a facial oil and apply it over your entire face and neck. I use it only at night).

 

Face Masks

OskiaRenaissance Mask (My ultimate favourite mask. This masks gently exfoliates, rejuvenates and hydrates your skin leaving it super smooth, supple, and bright. Suitable for all skin types, but I’d strongly recommend this mask to anyone that has dehydrated, dull, or lacklustre skin).

UMAAbsolute Anti-Aging Face Mask (This is an all-in-one purifying, soothing, and brightening mask. Most anti-aging masks are usually quite heavy on the “nourishment,” meaning they’re quite moisturizing and not always compatible with sensitive or breakout-prone skin. I was happily surprised by this mask because it’s more of a refining mask combatting clogged and enlarged pores, softening fine line and wrinkles, and gently evens out skin tone. Your skin glows after using this mask).

May LindstromThe Problem Solver (I LOVE this mask. This mask will make your skin feel fresh and glowing. It cleanses, brightens and deeply clarifies your skin, and makes it baby soft. If you’re challenged by breakouts, pimples, blackheads, enlarged pores, or you just want your skin to look better – this mask is a must try. For added hydration, I like to add 1 tsp of smooth raw honey to this mask).

 

Face Cloths/Flannels

Grovia Cloth Wipes (The softest washcloths I have found. Great for the regular oil cleansing method using a damp washcloth).

Bumkins Reusable Flannel Wipes (Soft, absorbable cotton flannels perfect for dry oil cleansing without water).

 

Lip Balms & Treatments

Hurraw!Tinted Cinnamon Lip Balm (Lightweight and moisturizing lip balm. I love the scent of the cinnamon flavour).

Hurraw!Tinted Black Cherry Lip Balm (I love the red tint of this lip balm, it’s subtle yet very complementary. I have a hard time not wearing it every single day!).

 

Shine Control / Mattifier

Vapour Organic BeautyStratus Soft Focus Skin Perfector (Silicone-free, primer/mattifier that lasts all day long, even in hot tropical Bali! If you have uncontrollable shiny skin like me, you’ll love this product. Plus, it’s non-comedogenic, safe for acne-prone skin. It really is a “skin perfector” disguising enlarged pores and giving your skin a smooth finish) – Full video & blog review, click here.

Tata Harper – Clarifying Moisturizer (This is a moisturizer, but it does have a matte finish and formulated for blemish-prone skin. This is the perfect “all in one product” if you’re looking for a light weight moisturizer that also controls shine) – Full video & blog review, click here.

RMS BeautyTinted “Un” Powder (This is a beautiful lightweight finishing powder that doesn’t accentuate fine lines and wrinkles or make your skin look dry, overly matte, or caked. The powder makes your skin silky soft, blurs enlarged pores and imperfections, and has a natural semi-matte finish (it’s buildable, so if you want a full matte finish, it so lightweight you can layer it to get the exact finish you want). I use both the Tinted “Un” Powder and the colourless/untinted “Un” Powder.

 

Concealers & Foundation

Annmarie Skin Care – Minerals Multi-Purpose Foundation (I absolutely love this makeup! It’s a powdered makeup that you mix with your favourite facial oil, serum, or moisturizer. You have full control over the shade and coverage, and since you mix it with your oil or moisturizer, the chances of getting breakouts or having a reaction to the product is close to none. I recommend getting the Minerals Multi-Purpose Foundation Sample Kit first, because it comes with samples of all 9 shades so you can try the makeup and make sure you select the perfect shade to match your skin tone. You can use this makeup as a concealer, tinted moisturizer, and foundation) – Full blog & video review, click here.

RMS Beauty“Un” Cover-Up (Great concealer for blemishes and disguising red areas on the face or under eye circles. I love the texture of this products because its quite hydrating as opposed to being dry and cakey like most concealers. It’s also very lightweight and buildable, so you can adjust the coverage and even use it as a foundation).

 

Sun Protection

Suntegrity – 5-in-1 Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30 (This is the best all-natural, non-toxic physical sunscreen I have found. It’s moisturizing (but not heavy or greasy), absorbs really well, non-comedogenic, and fully protects your skin. This tinted sunscreen comes in 5 shades, or if you prefer a face sunscreen without a tint, you can get the Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen SPF 30).

Suntegrity – Body Sunscreen SPF 30 (This broad spectrum body sunscreen is just as great as the face sunscreen. It rubs in well without leaving any white caste and fully protects your skin in the city or on the beach. Personally I really like the light scent, but you can also get the Unscented Body Sunscreen if you prefer).
