Natural Beauty | Neal's Yard Remedies

Natural ingredients are something I always look forward to in beauty products. I am all for the power of botanicals. I also love that most natural brands are ethically conscious and cruelty free! Neals Yard Remedies is a new brand to me, and it seems a little difficult to get a hold of in the U.S. I was able to try some of the products, and they are becoming quite interwoven in my daily routine.

The White Tea Toning Eye Gel became an instant favourite. It is so soothing and instantly de-puffing. I have been using this instead of a traditional eye cream day and night. The Organic Eye Make-Up Remover has become another daily in my routine. I swear by my Target Brand remover, but I do love knowing that with this, it's all natural ingredients and works basically as well. It smells a lot like the Michael Todd Pumpkin mask, so I was convinced it had pumpkin in it, but it's mainly rose water. I like using it as a toning step as well as for removing make-up. Do-it-all balms are becoming a new staple for me. At night, I am always searching for something that I can use for everything-hands, lips, etc. I am quite liking the Busy Bee Balm. It's the perfect addition to my nightstand. Plus, bees! NYR also does tea and other health items too. I love to try new teas and find a cup can be super calming. I have been enjoying the Summer Tea. It's an herbal tea of nettle, peppermint, liquorice, and Eyebright. It's slightly sweet, but not too overpowering. I am excited to try it iced, but hot at night has been a very relaxing way to end the day.

NYR seems to be a more prolific brand in England, but they do have a U.S. website and other international options as well. I am generally not a big of a fan consultant-type retail programs and was unaware that that's how they operated in the U.S. until after I tried the products. It might not be everyone's cup of tea, but if you are into natural, organic beauty-I have enjoyed these products.

What are some of your favourite natural beauty brands?
