When the Makeup Wars! Team decided to feature non-glam beauty essentials, I thought about the short list of daily picks that I am never without, and that I always repurchase. It became very clear to me that there were only a few things that I always keep on hand, and since the focus is non-glam that really excluded skincare and makeup. Here is a very short and concise list of the non-glam things that I have been repurchasing for years and use all of the time:
1) Organyc 100% Organic Cotton Rounds ($9.09 for a 3-pack from Amazon): I use these every single day to remove makeup, to apply a toner or facial mists that don't spray finely enough, to apply alcohol to the occasional cat scratch, to remove nail polish, and to do anything else that I can think of. They are absolutely indispensable, and they waste less product than cotton balls. They also work well to blend foundation in a pinch when you may not have a foundation brush or sponge handy.
Kiss My Face Cucumber Green Tea Active Life Deodorant ($4.68-$5.99 for 2.48 oz. Amazon, Walmart and Whole Foods Market): I have long used more natural deodorants, and this is the one that I have repeatedly repurchased for many years. It does a good job deodorizing, isn't filled with chemicals, doesn't leave a white residue on clothing and it has a wonderful fresh scent. I couldn't even begin to guess how many of these I have purchased over the years.
- No aluminum chlorohydrate parabens.
- Naturally effective.
- Sheer, clinically proven all day protection with effective odor absorbing ingredients & natural antioxidant Defenders.
Trader Joe's Moisturizing Cream Shave Honey Mango ($3.49 for 8 oz. from Trader Joe's. They can also be purchased on Amazon): This is an emollient, moisturizing and delectably aromatic shaving cream that is very effective and such a pleasure to use. It should be noted that it neither clogs the razor, nor does it leave behind a greasy film, and it is very well suited for sensitive skin. It gives a very clean and close shave and leaves skin silky smooth and soft. My husband and I both use and love this, and therefore we tend to buy 3-4 tubes at a time so that we don't run out. This shaving cream is so popular, that my Trader Joe's sometimes even runs out, and you have to wait for them to restock!
