Using organic and natural ingredients to make health
and beauty products is not just a trend anymore – it’s a revolution. I don’t
know too many people that aren’t concerned (or at least aware) of what products
they are putting into and onto their bodies, and many cosmetic companies have
caught on to this organic revolution. We have more organic beauty options today
than we ever did before.
I must admit, though, finding GOOD organic (or at
least safer) products can be challenging, especially when it comes to skin and
hair care. Over the years, I have tried a number of organic moisturizers and
shampoos. Some are horrible, some are okay, and most are just not up to my
standard. Recently, however, I was introduced to a product line called Davines.
Davines produces an Authentic Formula line, which
consists of a Cleansing Nectar, Moisture Balm, Nourishing Oil and Replenishing
Butter. All four Authentic Formulas
contain at least 98 percent naturally derived ingredients and are free of
silicones, artificial colors, parabens, sulphates, and Polyethylene glycol (PEG).
It gets better; all four products can be used on the hair, face, and body!
Although all of the formulas are awesome, my personal
favorite is the Authentic Replenishing Butter. The name suits the product well
– it goes on like butter, but unlike many creams, does not leave behind an oily
residue. The replenishing butter absorbs quickly and leaves behind a soft,
satiny texture. I have been using the butter as a daily moisturizer and love,
love, love the way it looks under makeup.
My second favorite is the Authentic Moisture Balm.
The moisture balm turned my fried hair into silk with just one use. The girls
over at Studio 514 told me it makes an amazing makeup remover too, so I will be
testing the balm’s removing powers.
Who said you couldn’t have your (organic!) cake and
eat it too?
