Deep Steep Grapefruit Bergamot Body Butter

I blame it on Sugarpuffish. I saw her talking about Deep Steep products on her YouTube channel, and I just knew I had to try this brand. The line consists of tons of different bath and body products that come in scents like honeydew spearmint, passionfruit guava, and in this case, grapefruit bergamot. The ingredients are almost entirely natural, and very clean. And then there's the price. Pretty much everything in the line is sold for under ten dollars on sites like Vitacost and iHerb. I think of this company as the natural version of Bath and Body Works.

Lina Hanson Global Body Serum

A serum for your body?

That's the perfect way to describe this luxury body oil that draws sought-after ingredients from all over the world. From natural celebrity makeup artist Lina Hanson comes her namesake Global Body Serum ($63 for 3.4 oz.), a small batch, hand-blended product packed with nourishing oils. This body moisturizer is globally minded not only for the ingredients, but for its charitable cause. Until August 15, a portion of the sales go to International Rescue Committee, a relief organization that operates in Haiti, Afghanistan and Iraq, among other places. You can read more about IRC here.

Acure Moisturizing Root Repair Deep Conditioning Hair Mask

The newest addition to the Acure haircare line is this Root Repair Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. A little confusing in name, this treatment is meant to be used once or twice a week in place of conditioner. Though it is called "Root Repair," the instructions say to run this mask through the ends of your hair, and leave in for at least 5 minutes before rinsing. I kind of take it to be the natural version of something like Aussie 3 Minute Miracle.

Badger Cuticle Care

I think, by now, several of you have noted my penchant for Badger Balm posts. My quest to try all the Badger Balm continues with Badger Cuticle Care, which comes is a super cute 0.75 oz tin. As with all things Badger, I was expecting a nice moisturizing balm. But I was really pleasantly surprised by the bright, invigorating lemongrass and geranium scent. Coupled with hints of mandarin, cardamom, and rosemary, this almost feels like a solid perfume, but isn't overpowering at all. It is so pleasant, I sometimes like to rub some into my wrists, just for the scent.

Acure Leave-In Conditioner

By now you already know how much I love Acure's line of shampoo and conditioner, so it's only natural that I would try the leave-in spray from their haircare line. Conditioning leave-in sprays are one of those products that are so helpful for people like me with dry, damaged hair.

Booda Butter

Recently, a chubby little Buddah on a copper colored tin caught my eye in a local health food store. Based in Belligham, WA, Booda Butter is a cheeky, cheerful product made of pure organic butters and oils. Though it has no added fragrance, Booda Butter has a amazing chocolate scent from the organic cocoa butter it contains. I am normally not one for chocolate scented products, but I absolutely love this. It is nothing like Palmer's Cocoa butter or any chocolate scented lotion you'd find at the drugstore. This stuff smells like fresh, creamy cocoa, without being overpowering.

Sappho Liquid Foundation

Looking for a natural liquid foundation with a creamy texture and weightless feel? Sappho Cosmetics, a Canadian company, may just have your answer. The brand's liquid foundation is smooth, lightweight product that easy to apply and is very reminiscent of a department store product. Not too creamy or too watery, this product has the perfect thickness to create medium coverage and and a flawless, natural finish. In fact, I like the finish of this foundation more than any natural product I've tried yet. It sets on its own without powder, and it doesn't feel like you're wearing anything on your face at all.
