Photo Friday | Organic Skincare

I am very much a Chapstick/lip balm addict. I always have at least two in my purse, one at my desk, one on my bedside table, and like three in my bathroom.

So when I visited the John Masters Organics shop at the Ala Moana shopping center in Honolulu a couple months ago, I couldn't resist picking up a tube of their organic lip balm. This one is raspberry flavored, which hooked me instantly.

What I didn't expect was just how soft it would make my lips feel. There's nothing I hate more than a rock-hard tube of lip balm that doesn't do anything to soothe chapped lips - and this one is exactly the opposite.

It's got a permanent spot in my purse, where I use it way too obsessively.

My other little treat-yoself purchase at the shop was this Rose & Apricot Antioxidant Day Creme. As I mentioned to the employee, now that I'm in my 30s, I'm trying to focus more on taking care of my skin. This creme is lightweight and silky feeling, so it's perfect as the first thing I put on before makeup in the morning. I can't handle thick, pasty products on my skin.

With this week of freezing cold weather and running our heater more, my skin has been extra dry, and this creme helps to give a layer of moisture in the mornings.

As I started to write this post, I realized I had never looked up these products in the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep database, to cross check just how good they are for my health. Both products are listed under older formulations, but they still earn great ratings. The lip balm earns an overall score of 1 (the highest score) and the day creme earns a 2.

I'm looking forward to investing in more organic and vegan-friendly skincare this year as part of my journey to taking better care of my health. Do you have any favorite organic beauty and skincare products?
