Facial skin care suggestion?

Hi Ladies, 
I haven't posted here before but thought I might be able to get some advice on a non-toxic facial skin care product.  I am looking for lightweight foundation and powder that is free of chemicals such as parabens, dimethicone, etc.  I have very sensitive skin myself so I have always been careful of what I use, but now I would like to be even more cautious with my LO rubbing up on my face all the time.  

I would appreciate any suggestions, especially for a powder.

TIA!

Re: Facial skin care suggestion?

  • I don't use too much make-up but I do like the Physicians Formulas Organic cosmetic line when I do.

    My entire family is all about pure and natural products!!!

    We found the best, most gentle organic baby/family body wash.  It's called Organic Baby's Glow made by Glowgenics.  It is currently available on Amazon as well as glowgenics.com

    It is a great addition for the family.

    Hope this helps.

  • Have you ever used the website Skin Deep? It's a great site where you can search for ingredients and/or specific products and find out how safe they are to use. When I first stumbled across it, my eyes were really opened as to how unsafe some of the products we were using in our household on a regular basis truly were. http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/

    I don't wear a ton of makeup, but I use Mineral Fusions concealer and powder. It's sold at Whole Foods, so I was able to try out some testers before purchasing. It's pricey, but it also seems to last forever. I'm not sure if you use mascara, but I really like Ecco Bella Flower Color Natural Black Mascara. I order it on Amazon with free shipping. 

    I also second chirowife4 that Physician's Formula carries some great products and is more readily accessible because it's sold at stores like Target and Wal-Mart! 

  • Thanks Ladies for your input. 

    @lbs2012 I checked the Alima Pure website, and I love the idea of being able to order some sample foundations.  I just ordered four tones to try!  

    Thank you @bohemianic for the tips and for reminding me of this site, I had seen it in the past, but didn't remember the website.
