Living a more natural lifestyle has always been important me (just ask anyone who's come to one of my vegan dinner parties, I love my friends for putting up with me!). When I had my first baby I did a major overhaul on everything in our home and was surprised to learn how many natural products still contained harmful ingredients. Things like the natural baby wash I was buying, my favorite lipstick, our natural shampoo, the list goes on and on. As someone who was going out of my way to consume safe products this was so frustrating. I learned that studies show over 80% of the ingredients used in the cosmetics industry have never been tested for safety, but they're still allowed in products because we don't have strict regulations about it here in the US. For instance, the European Union has banned about 1400 potentially harmful ingredients from use in their products, Canada has banned 600, but here in the US, we've only placed restrictions or bans on 30 ingredients. These are the products we're putting on our skin, using for our babies. There has to be greater accountability about how safe they are. That's really the mission behind Beautycounter and one of the reasons I decided to work with them this year. So far, they've banned 1500 ingredients from use in their products and are working to educate women about safety in the cosmetics industry. 

As a mother to four young girls, safer beauty is something I'm really passionate about and I love sharing Beautycounter's mission with other women. Their products are amazing and once I tried them I totally fell in love with my skin care routine again. So today I thought I'd put together a little natural beauty guide and share some of my must-have products with you! 

You can see all of these products on the Beautycounter website here, be sure it says you're shopping with me at the top of the page! My personal website through Beautycounter is: http://www.beautycounter.com/jenniferrobbins

Dew Skin - I prefer using an SPF tinted moisturizer over foundation for an easy, natural look.

Rejuvenating Night Cream - my favorite luxurious night cream.

Baby Soothing Oil - a gentle oil I use on my babes after bath. As a bonus, it's also great for removing makeup!

Color Pinch Cream Blush - this is my favorite cream blush, I use the hibiscus color and it creates the perfect natural glow!

Glow Shimmer Oil - a nourishing body oil that gives you a sun kissed look!

Touch Up Concealer - for those dark circles.

Peppermint Lip Conditioner - a soothing lip balm with natural peppermint oil.

Brightening Facial Oil - possibly my favorite product! If you haven't started using facial oil, now is the time. It's incredibly nourishing and helps keep your skin radiant and youthful. 

Charcoal Mask - this natural charcoal mask is my go-to when I have problem skin (hello every single pregnancy). But I also love Beautycounter's Brightening Vitamin C and Plumping Peony masks. I got mistaken for the kids' nanny once and when I said I was their mother the woman asked what I did to look so young and I was like "maybe these masks I use?!"

Cleansing Balm - a staple in my beauty cabinet these days. This rich balm can be used as a cleanser, a nourishing mask, a moisturizer for dry skin, lips, eczema patches on little ones. Truly multi purpose!

Nourishing Rosewater Mist - a refreshing rose water spray great for your complexion. 

Nourishing Eye Cream - my favorite eye cream (a must have as a mother of young children to help me combat puffy eyes!)

Nourishing Cream Exfoliator - my favorite everyday gentle exfoliating face wash.

Super-Duper Clean Kids Body Wash - a super gentle and nourishing body wash for the little ones. 

Lip Gloss - my favorite is the sheer Opal for a natural look. 

Body Oil - this body oil is amazingly hydrating and smells heavenly.
