organic beauty products

DOLLY&MILA

Dolly and Mila originated in a tiny kitchen in NYC after the founders traveled through Central America and spent years studying Indigenous remedies, anthropology and holistic nutrition. The founders are best friends from childhood, but they’re names are actually not Dolly and Mila. The line was named after two special women who inspired them throughout their lives (so sweet!). Having always dreamed of starting a company with a best friend, I especially love the story and bond behind this fabulous line. And of course, I also love that everything  is 100% natural and wild-crafted using organic, free and fair trade ingredients.

So far, the Blossom Honey and Organic Coffee Intensive Facial Exfoliant is definitely my favorite from the line. Talk about a perfect morning beauty product! It truly perks you up inside and out. If you like natural products, you’ll just love how unprocessed and raw this scrub smells and feels. Its ingredient list is superbly clean and pure with not a single questionable ingredient.  It also doubles as a natural cellulite treatment – use it as a mask and scrub for any current or potential areas of concern. What a great bonus, right?!

Pai Skincare

Pai Skincare is another organic skin care line definitely worth trying. Sarah Brown founded this company after becoming fed up with unshakable skin allergies. When doctors insisted the only treatment was masking her issues with numerous medications, she decided to quit her job and develop a plant-based line free of chemicals – Pai was born! Since 60% of beauty products are absorbed into your body  it naturally makes sense that skin care is ultra important when it comes to finding the source of health issues, especially ones affecting your skin.

So far I have tried Pai’s Avocado & Jojoba Hydrating Day Cream. I love it – it’s super hydrating (just like you would expect), has a very light scent (definitely plant-like) and absorbs really nicely (no greasy look after application).  Pai is a UK company and is not yet easily found across the US, but you can always purchase online or check out the full list of carriers worldwide!
