Moisturizers for Body, Face and Hands: Favorites That Work Well and Are Good For You

Favorite Non-Toxic Moisturizers

All Purpose Skin Cream – Egyptian Magic

Review: Egyptian Magic is a great find for an all-purpose skin cream. The ingredients are simple and natural — olive oil, beeswax, honey, pollen, royal jelly and propolis extract. Royal jelly is a liquid made by bees for the queen bee and was used by the ancient Egyptians as a skin cream. Egyptian Magic is an ideal facial moisturizer that will make your skin glow and smooth the appearance of wrinkles, but it can also be used to help heal scars, burns, eczema and other skin rashes, tame frizzy hair, soothe chapped lips, and moisturize dry skin on elbows and feet. It also works great as an eye cream or eye make up remover. This cream has appeared in numerous beauty magazines as a favorite beauty secret and I can see why. To use, simply rub the cream between your palms to turn into a liquid and smooth over your skin. It takes about 15 minutes to be absorbed.

Where to Buy: You can purchase Egyptian Magic on their website www.egyptianmagic.com or at many natural food stores.

Price: About $35 for a 4 oz. jar (it lasts a long time).


Body Lotion: Andalou Naturals Body Lotion

Review: Once you try this body lotion, you won’t want to use any other. For starters, it is a completely clean product with no GMOs, petrochemicals, phthalates, paraben, sulfates, synthetic colors, dyes, fragrances, triclosan, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA which you find in many personal care products. It is also vegan, gluten and cruelty free. The key ingredients are aloe vera, shea butter, cocoa butter, argan oils, advanced fruit stem cells and bioactive 8 berry complex. Advanced fruit stem cells are derived from apple and grape and provide universal cells to increase longevity of skin’s stem cells and combat the visible signs of aging. Bioactive 8 berry complex are antioxidants to increase collagen and elastin. I love the Citrus Verbena but it also comes in other formulations like 1000 Roses and Clementine Ginger. You don’t need to worry about this lotion sitting on top of your skin and feeling oily because it is quickly absorbed and your skin looks and feels great.

Where to Buy: You can purchase Andalou Body Lotion on their website www.andalou.com or at many natural food stores.

Price: About $10 for 8 oz.


Tinted Face Moisturizer with SPF: Andalou Naturals All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint with SPF 30

Review: This product is amazing. I had looked for years for a tinted moisturizer that wouldn’t clog my pores and would give me just a hint of color and finally found this product. Of course, I love the fact that it is a completely clean product with no GMOs, petrochemicals, phthalates, paraben, sulfates, synthetic colors, dyes, fragrances, triclosan, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA which you find in many personal care products. It is also vegan, gluten and cruelty free. This product provides a naturally sheer, mineral-tint color and while I usually wear it alone, it can also be worn under make-up. Once I began using this product, I started getting compliments on my skin because the tint and the minerals catch the light and make your skin look luminous. Since this offers sheer coverage, for those who want more complete coverage, you will need to add some mineral powder. The product also includes fruit stem cell complex to reduce visible signs of aging.

Where to Buy: You can purchase Andalou Naturals All in One Beauty Balm Sheer Tint with SPF 30 on their website www.andalou.com or at many natural food stores.

Hand Cream: Andalou Naturals Shea Butter + Cocoa Butter Hand Cream

Review: If you are like me, you hate having greasy hands after applying hand cream. This product solves that problem and your hands will look amazing. The key ingredients are aloe vera, shea butter, cocoa butter, and advanced fruit stem cells. Advanced fruit stem cells are derived from apple and grape and provide universal cells to increase longevity of skin’s stem cells and combat the visible signs of aging. It is also great for your nails and cuticle. I find that it is long-lasting even after hand washings. You’ll love how smooth your hands will look even in winter. Available in lavender, Clementine and lime blossom. As with all Andalou products, this product contains no GMOs, petrochemicals, phthalates, paraben, sulfates, synthetic colors, dyes, fragrances, triclosan, PEG, MEA, TEA, DEA which you find in many personal care products.
