10 Beauty Products That Aren't Packed with Chemicals
Time for a palette cleanser
Every other week, it seems there's a new controversial ingredient you shouldn't apply to your skin. Whether you're looking to clean up your entire beauty regimen or just want to swap out one or two items, you won't be disappointed. Natural and organic beauty products have come a long way since their crunchy beginnings. So we wrangled up ten professionally vetted formulas that look, feel and smell just as luxe as their more conventional counterparts.
RMS Un Cover-Up
Universally loved by makeup artists and celebs alike, this coconut-oil-based concealer melts into skin and covers up any discoloration (dark circles, redness and spots) better than most. We keep the palm-sized tin in our purse at all times for touch-ups.
Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Tint
This pretty little pot packs a ton of natural pigment. From a pale pink to a warm coral, there’s a flattering shade for everyone. Dab a light layer on your lips and cheeks for a barely there flush--or layer on liberally for a vibrant pop.
W3LL People Expressionist Mascara
This fluttery formula defies everything you’ve ever known (or feared) about natural mascaras. From the densely packed micro bristles to the naturally nourishing ingredients like sunflower extracts, it leaves lashes darker, fuller and not in the least bit clumpy.

Ilia Silken Shadow Stick
Also known as smoky eyes in a stick. These self-sharpening shadows glide onto lids effortlessly thanks to a blend of argan and sesame oils and leave a subtle shimmer. Add multiple layers to build intensity.
Herbivore Botanicals Lapis Oil Balancing Facial Oil
A few drops of this calming blend reduces redness--and get this, excess oil--thanks to blue tansy, a powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial ingredient that also gives it its tranquil color.
Drunk Elephant Umbra Sheer Physical Defense SPF 30
Finally, a non-chemical sunscreen that protects skin without leaving any telltale streaks or greasy residue. It also just so happens to be fragrance-free and wears well under makeup, too.
One Love Organics Antioxidant Body Serum
Moisturizing just got a lot easier thanks to this spray-on serum. Chock-full of hydrating and firming ingredients like pumpkin seed oil, this lightweight liquid sinks into skin immediately, leaving it soft and glistening, but never slick.
Acure Triple Moisture Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner
Who says organic has to be pricey? At ten bucks a bottle, this sulfate-free shampoo (read: color-safe) lathers nicely and leaves strands super clean and soft. The conditioner is rich but doesn’t weigh hair down thanks to highly nourishing (and super absorbent) argan and sea buckthorn oils.
Goop Perfecting Eye Cream
Gwyneth Paltrow has good taste--and it shows in her new skincare line. The velvety eye cream, in particular, has a whipped consistency that feels incredible on and claims to plump fine lines over time with potent natural ingredients like sweet iris extract.
