Beauty: Favorite Natural & Organic Skincare

For my skincare, I try to use as many natural products as possible without certain preservatives or fragrances. However, I don't use straight up coconut oil or shea butter because I also like a blend of added beneficial ingredients. So it's like the goop Pop-In at Nordstrom read my mind and curated all the natural beauty and wellness products in one spot. Nordstrom graciously gifted me a box of goodies from the Pop-In (open through June 25!), and here are 5 of my favorites:

goop Replenishing Night Cream - This is my new favorite night face cream. It has a mix of sandalwood nut oil (increases elasticity), linseed extract (reduces inflammation), and hyaluronic acid (prevents moisture loss). Plus, this night cream is made up of 79% organic ingredients. The texture is heavenly! It's thick and creamy, yet somehow light and whipped. The product soaks in and I wake up with hydrated, bouncy skin. I also love the simple and sophisticated matte packaging. It's an investment, but a little product goes a long way!

Lavido Alert Eye Cream - I have a few different eye creams for various purposes. I wear this one during the day because it sits well under makeup. It's super lightweight and my skin drinks it up. I like that it's almost slippery, which makes it easy to tap into my eye area.

Grown Alchemist Intensive Body Cream - Amazing body creams are actually so hard to come by. I have tried soo many, and either it's too thick and just sits on the skin or it's so watery and barely moisturizing. This body cream is perfect -- the texture is liquidy so it's easy to spread around, yet the product is really hydrating.

goop Enriching Face Oil - I have combination skin, and I never thought I'd love face oil because I always thought it'd make me greasier. However, I've been using one for years (only at night) and it's helped my skin retain moisture while I sleep. This face oil is made with 99% organic ingredients! I put on face oil at the end of my skincare routine, and I press the oil into my skin, neck, and décolleté.

French Girl Organics Sea Soak - There is something so satisfying about a short ingredient list. This bath soak mix is made up of organic Himalayan pink salt, French + Dead + Pacific sea salts, and peppermint + French lavender + rosemary oils. The smell of this alone is so soothing - add hot water and steam and the bath has just become therapy.

The goop Pop-In at Nordstrom is open through this weekend (June 25)!
