Mini haul + what's really in your products??

Hello Fabulous readers!

Today's post is really a mini haul and the reason behind buying these products are that I really want to do my best and use more cruelty-free, natural and chemical-free products . .

Do you really know what there is in your deodorant, make-up, facial cleansers etc. , or even your hair products? I met up with Sarah from Blends of Nature on Saturday, and she said that somtimes she worries that she knows too much about how all the things we use in our day-to-day life are loaded with dangerous chemicals, parabens , GMO's and other nasties that can actually cause cancer . .

Yes, it's difficult to just throw away all the things you have and replace them with  natural and organic products, but is it worth using poison on your body?? No, it's not!! At least for me it isn't . .

Check out this video first . . it explains more into detail :)    :

This ''all bad things have to go'' idea has been in my mind for ages now, and the first thing I did was throw away all the roll on deodorants and sprays I had and buy a Weleda Wild Rose Deodorant instead:

I also replace my facial and body moisturiser and bought the Wild Rose range by Weleda instead.

I decided to chuck all cleansers and bought a Weleda Iris facial cleanser. When that got used up, I decided to try the handmade one by Soap Cafe.

The next thing I did was to avoid using nail polishes, and take care more of my nails and cuticle instead. Go heat some olive or coconut oil and give your cuticles some loving ;)

The next thing I wanted to try is an alternative to hot wax, so when Blends of Nature stocked up on some natural hair removal called Amber Gel, I decided to give it a go and buy one. It has no chemicals, no wax, resin , additives, fragrances or synthetic material in it! Will review it soon!

Since my Weleda deodorant was running out, I decided to had down to my local health store Shanti and stock up on another deodorant. This time, I bought the citrus one and decided to buy the bigger version. Smells amazing!! Weleds's deodorants are made of essential oils and are free of anti-perspirants such as Alumiuium Salts and does not interfere with the natural functons of the skin. Super!

While I was there, I also picked up a Weleda lavender creamy body wash (which was half price!)

I also picked up a Lily Lolo (they are 100% natural and mineral with no chemical nasties) black eye pencil.You have to check out their range, especially their minaeral bronzers and eye-shadows, because they look amazing!!  I wanted their bronzer in South Beach, but it was out of stock so I ordered it :)

My next step would be replacing my toothpaste (I have still yet to ask my dentist about that, since I'm wearing braces..) shampoo and conditioner and . . .make-up!  Little by little . .

Take a look at : Cruelty Free Malta, Soap Cafe , Blends of Nature, Shanti, Ayurveda, Nutrition Empire, Naturisimo

What do you guys think of all this? Would you be ready to repalce some of your products for more natural ones?
