All Good Products

All Good Goop - 2oz

Our first product ever to hit store shelves, we named this healing balm All Good Goop when we realized how amazing it is for everything! Its organic skincare formula mixes essential oils with medicinal plants to make it strong enough for a climber’s raw knuckles and gentle enough for a baby’s bottom. 

Cuts, Scrapes, Abrasions

Minor Burns, Sunburn

Insect Bites, Stings, Dry and Irritated Skin

Chapped Lips

Diaper Rash

Blisters

Cracked or Calloused Hands

Scars… and much more

Love that it’s natural. And that it works. I’ve used the All Good Goop for several of the problems listed above including insect bites (spider and fire ant) and scrapes. It absorbs well and gets to the job of fast healing. I like that it can be used for so many things. It’s available in several jar sizes; the 2 oz. jar is handy for traveling.

Organic and Natural Skin Care – Beauty By Earth

Beauty By Earth Facial Toner; Organic and Natural Witch Hazel Rose Water Astringent; Best Hydrating and Clarifying Face Spray for Daily Use; No Alcohol or Oil; Skin Cleansing for Men and Women

“Perfectly Natural. Crazy Effective. Absolute Peace Of Mind.”

Facial Toner with Rose Water

Light, fresh, clean, refreshed… Do those words describe your skin? They will once you start using facial toner with rose water! This light, bright, and refreshing spray helps clear away excess dirt, oil, and dead skin that may be on your face after washing. It also helps nourish your skin, reduce redness, swelling, and irritation, helps relieve sun and razor burn, and just feels really, really good.

What do we like best about our facial toner with rose water? Besides the fact that it helps make complexions look their best, makes pores smaller, balances skin pH, is easy to use, and smells incredible, it’s made with 100% natural and organic ingredients. Everything in the bottle (and, now that we think about it, the bottle itself) is sustainably sourced and entirely cruelty free. There’s really no better way to care for your face. Once you start using our toner, you won’t want to go back!

 

This is a terrific toner! The above description is right on. Thank you Beauty By Earth for allowing me to review your toner with rose water (& with aloe vera, witch hazel, and cucumber) It has been added to my selective list of skin care products that I use.

Additionally, I’d like to mention that I use their Boar Hair Bristle Brush. The longer nylon bristles of this brush help with tangles and the boar bristles make hair shiny and smooth.  

Products are natural and effective. Made in the US. Cruelty free. Available on their website and on Amazon.

Every Christina Moss Naturals® product nurtures naturally useful skin by nourishing the body’s largest organ with safe, effective, natural ingredients. never, ever includes toxic or potentially harmful ingredients, puts the environment firstreflects a minimalist mentality.

 

Some comments on a few of the Christina Moss Naturals products:

Product Details

This face wash is concentrated, so a little goes a long way. It is good for all skin types. I am insanely picky about face care products!- so I’m still deciding on this one. In a similar bottle is the moisturizer. While it is fragrance free, the last ingredient, anise, is very detectable. Unique scent to any skin care I’ve used. I’ve used this moisturizer on my little one.

Product Details

Shampoo had a big lather. Not a good fit for my hair. It felt clean but didn’t feel nourished. Found it made my hair tangled.

Product Details

Love peppermint in my lip balm. Great for all in the family – It’s exactly what everyone needs for all seasons.

Product Details

No one can get a grip on this super slippery soap. Doesn’t lather much but cleans nicely. Use carefully around eyes.

Christina Moss Naturals is CRUELTY FREE- thank you!

All Good Products

All Good is a lifestyle brand with a clear vision: to live and inspire others to live in balance with nature. We make organic body care products because we want you to feel amazing from the soothing natural benefits of botanical ingredients.

All Good Deodorant Cedarwood & Spruce - 2.5 oz Stick

All Good deodorants use naturally occurring enzymes and essential oils to fight odor causing bacteria. Arrowroot powder absorbs moisture and dries underarms, while aloe vera and our homegrown calendula soothe sensitive skin. Our promise is that nothing in these causes harm: all good ingredients, always. Available in Unscented, Tea Tree & Basil, Cedarwood & Spruce, Rose Geranium & Jasmine.

In a stick form, this one worked for me. Natural. Effective. And smells Good. Arrowroot powder is said to absorb moisture and keep underarms dry and I found it to do just that. I thought the scent super nice. (Cedarwood! Spruce!) I bet the Tea Tree/Basil and Rose Geranium/Jasmine are equally nice.

This deodorant also measures up at EWG’s Skin Deep database. I did look up the first ingredient (Propanediol) and found it to be safe (from what I can determine). truthinaging.com/ingredients/propanediol

Captain Blankenship

‘beauty wild with nature’. We are a small, women-run company in the Hudson River Valley that makes products that are luxurious and honest. We formulate our products with only organic and wild-harvested ingredients that are domestically grown when possible. We never use synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates or “fragrance.” We use recyclable and reusable glass packaging, making a positive environmental impact. We test on ourselves and friends and never on animals. We believe in transparency in every aspect of our line.

Lots of great natural products. Easy enough said. And let me make this review a highlight for two of my favorites! 

LIME & VETIVER CREAM DEODORANT 

A great product to start the day off right. I will continue to use and hope this one ends my search for a natural deodorant. The scent however I’m not sure about. Vetiver? It’s a “smoky” essential oil and I’m not crazy about it for topical use. (as oppose to diffusing) Tons of essential oil combos could be used and maybe they will add to their line and offer more choices. 

(Organic Arrowroot Powder helps keep you dry, Aluminum Free Baking Soda helps neutralize odor, Organic Hops Extract fights against bacteria, Organic Coconut Oil keeps you moisturized, Organic Lime, Lemongrass and Vetiver Essential Oils keep you smelling fresh.) Why switch to natural deodorants? use this link for a good answer.

AVOCADO & PEPPERMINT HAND, CUTICLE & FOOT BALM

And this product is the perfect way to end the day. A good moisture treatment for dry heels, it is a minty, refreshing treat at the end of the day for my tired feet. Peppermint always smells good to me.

(Organic Avocado Oil deeply penetrates dry skin and improves texture, Organic Shea Butter is naturally high in vitamins and minerals and intensely moisturizes skin, Organic Calendula Extract helps heal cracked skin, Organic Cocoa Butter, rich in Vitamin E, nourishes skin and smells like chocolate, Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, naturally high in Vitamin C, hydrates thirsty skin, Wildharvested Myrhh Essential Oil softens and repairs dry skin and cuticles.)

Amara Organics

Natural, Organic Beauty Products

Amara Organics’ Vitamin C Facial Cleanser -formulated with 15% Vitamin C, Aloe, Rosehip Oil & Tea Tree Oil. Oh, those ingredients sounded nice. And when I also spotted MSM in the ingredients, I knew I wanted to give this a try. This is a gel cleanser with a nice clean smell that leaves my face feeling clean and moisturized. It didn’t irritate my “princess” skin. (didn’t irritate my very sensitive skin). I’ve been using this cleanser for two weeks and will continue using. Comes in an easy to use pump bottle.

Vitamin C Facial Cleanser 15% With Rosehip Oil & Tea Tree Oil - 6 oz

Balancing Facial Toner with Witch Hazel & Vitamin C - 6 oz

Balancing Facial Toner – formulated with Witch Hazel, Vitamin C, Aloe, Neroli, and Glycolic Acid. More great ingredients. This toner comes in a spray bottle for easy use on face and neck. This was also nonirritating;however, the witch hazel is very much detectable. I know it’s good for the skin but I do hate the scent (stinky). My wish for this toner is that it could be formulated with an essential oil that could mask the witch hazel – for a better fragrance.

More skin care products on their website. And this is helpful…..$3.95 STANDARD SHIPPING | FREE SHIPPING OVER $25

Haven’t heard of Waxelene?

Waxelene is a petroleum jelly alternative made from natural beeswax and the highest quality natural & organic oils instead of petroleum. It actually works better than petroleum jelly because our patented aeration process and natural ingredients allow the skin to breathe as well as being soft and creamy. Other balm-like products are usually either hardened or use hydrogenated oils or petroleum derivatives to be soft like Waxelene

Revolutionary skin care! Highly effective for moisturizing and soothing dry skin. It is also great for make-up, babies, sports, hair, sun, aftershave…..all that you would use petroleum jelly for. (IF you were to use petroleum jelly which I hope you WOULDN’T because petroleum jelly is yucky)

Waxelene has only 4 natural and organic ingredients. Really! organic soybean oil, natural & unbleached raw beeswax, natural vitamin E oil (derived from soybeans) and  organic rosemary oil. No hidden ingredients, such as synthetic preservatives, dyes, perfumes, thickeners, etc.

And get ready for even more good stuff!

Waxelene is certified cruelty-free by PETA and Leaping Bunny! Undisputably  sustainable, their ingredients are all natural, their facility is powered with 100% wind power, and their boxes are all 100% recycled.

I reviewed the Flip-Top Squeeze Tube (.75oz). This is the smallest size making it easy to keep on hand. I primarily use it for dry lips.  Waxelene also comes in a 9 oz. and a 2 oz. jar.
