Hello greenies! You’ve been keeping me busy with your questions, so I thought it would be a good time to do another edition from the Readers Questions series. I’ve collected a few questions, varying from my first natural beauty brands, hauls – or not, carrier oils going rancid, frequency of posting, and a few suggestions for a reader who has sensitive skin. I enjoy reading your emails, Facebook messages etc. – about anything, actually, so don’t be shy and drop me a note * * * The first question comes from Spain: “Which were first natural brands you used when you started using natural cosmetics?” Even though it’s been many moons since I switched to green beauty, I still use […]

A reader from Italy has sent us a question about which unscented natural beauty products would be suitable for sensitive skin: I’m trying to use more natural cosmetics. I have sensitive skin and I’m looking for natural cosmetic products that would have no scent. Can you tell what products without fragrances would be fine for my skin? Scent is one of the aspects of beauty products that most enjoy; some even buy beauty products based solely on scent alone. I am very partial to the scent of roses, and have a hard time passing by beauty products, which contain the scent of roses. However, some people either do not like scented beauty products, or their skin is sensitive to fragrant […]
