Cassandra McClure Clean Beauty Swap 2020

Cassandra’s Best Go- To Lipstick

Check out what clean alternative Celebrity MUA Cassandra McClure is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

Former model and internationally recognized, multi award-winning makeup artist, entrepreneur and podcaster, My work has been featured in publications, on celebrities and on T.V. I was diagnosed with psoriasis, vision loss and allergies and found that fragrant beauty products were making me sick. Now I try hundreds of clean products and share the ones that work for me with my audience. I have light, drier skin and tend to love anything creamy. .

Cassandra’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Lipstick

To keep my lips moist I drink lots of water and wear lip balm everyday. I avoid matte lipsticks for daily wear because I tend to have drier lips. I swapped all of my lip balm, sticks, glosses and mattes to clean products and found a few go-to products for my purse and makeup kit that stay put and feel beautiful!

I loved this Chanel Lipstick; Now I love the Mismack Moisture Locking Lipstick

I used to love applying CHANEL lipstick on myself and clients because they are high end and can elevate any mood. Now I’m pretty much addicted to Mismack Clean Cosmetics. It’s creamy, pigmented and smooth, just like CHANEL and comes in beautiful sleek yet professional packaging. I have all the colors. One for each purse!

Caitlin’s Best Deodorant for All Day Wear

Caitlin Sacasas Clean Beauty Swap 2020

Caitlin’s Best Deodorant for All Day Wear

Check out what clean alternative deodorant fitness trainer Caitlin Sacasas is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

As a fitness trainer and green living advocate, I’ve been searching for a green, clean, low waste deodorant that actually performs for years. I sweat -a lot- at the gym, and many green deodorants just aren’t strong enough. I need serious performance!

Caitlin’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Deodorant

My #1 concern is performance. Can the deodorant make it through an intense spin class, or long weight lifting session? As I’m trying to reduce waste, I wanted something plastic-free but still convenient in a tube (I did NOT like the pastes). I also wanted something that wouldn’t stain my shirts, and apply smoothly. Fragrance was the least of my concerns, but a bonus if it did smell nice (with non-toxic fragrance).

I loved this Dove Deodorant; Now I love Hammond Herbs Pit Stop

Before switching to green beauty products, I used Dove Advanced Care deodorant. It was the only thing that worked for me. After a lot of trial and error, I discovered Hammond Herbs Pit Stop, and I LOVE it! The zero-waste push-up tube is very convenient. It smells AMAZING and holds up well, even during the most intense sweaty workouts. The consistency and application is one of the smoothest and creamiest that I’ve tried. The ingredients are pure, and even though it has coconut oil, it doesn’t leave stains on my shirts. (Even the white ones!) It’s definitely the closest deodorant I’ve found to Dove in feel and performance.

Lisa’s Best Face Wash For Gentle Skin

Lisa’s Best Face Wash For Gentle Skin

Check out what clean alternative Blogger Lisa Marie Holmes is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

As a registered herbalist it is important to me that I support brands and products that are making sustainable, green, and effective skin health products. The skin is your largest detoxification organ, so I believe that what you put on it can either encourage health or prevent it.

Lisa’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Face Wash

When choosing a face wash I am looking for something that doesn’t irritate the natural oils in my skin and create a ph imbalance. It needs to be gentle yet effective at removing pollutants, dirt, and makeup.

I loved this Proactive Face Wash; Now I love Eminence 

I tried using Proactive in my early 20s and found that the harsh chemicals in the product line was extremely aggressive on my skin and perpetuated my pre-existing skin problems. It physically hurt using their line. When I switched to Eminence, I discovered how gentle yet cleansing an all natural product line can be. Their line is made up of fruit and vegetable based ingredients and are organic too. This line has been the only brand to ever give me confidence in a skin care regime.

Stacy’s Favourite Go – To Eyeliner

Stacy’s Favourite Go-To Eyeliner

Check out what clean alternative Conscious Living Consultant Stacy Irie Soul is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

As a Conscious Living Consultant I am always on the lookout for beautiful brands which have formulated their products with clean and healthier ingredients for the consumer and for the planet as well as those brands who take the time to create more eco-friendly packaging.

I loved this Maybelline Pencil Eyeliner; Now I love the MarieNatie Pencil Eyeliner

It feels great to use a product that I know does not contain any chemicals that I would be taking into my eyes and body. This eyeliner goes on smooth and lasts the same amount of time as other brands I’ve used in the past.

Reena’s Best Face Cream for Glowing Skin

Reena Ceschia Clean Beauty Swap 2020

Reena’s Best Face Cream For Glowing Skin

Check out what clean alternative Blogger Reena Ceschia from Elle Muse is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

When it comes to skincare, I focus on high-quality and natural ingredients that do not irritate the skin since I suffer from Rosacea. I started using Essential Oils in my daily regime last year and have seen tremendous improvements in skin texture and elasticity. I love the process of applying oils, serums and reputable products in my daily skincare routine. As a woman who is close to 50 years old, I feel proud and confident about my skin and youthful look. My goal is to continue to maintain this healthy and radiant skin over the next 10 years.

Reena’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Face Cream

To keep my face looking young and radiant, I use essential oils, serums, and high-quality creams. Clean skin is healthy skin and that’s my daily mantra. I avoid any harsh treatments that can irritate my face, and protect my skin by minimizing exposure to the sun. On top of that, I live a healthy and active lifestyle which includes cardo and strength workout, as well as, drinking lots of water throughout the day.

I loved this Lancome Face Cream; Now I love Routine Natural Goods

I received a sample of Routine Natural Face (Woke Glow) from Pure Picks last Sept 2019 and fell in love with the oil. I’ve been using it since on my face as part of my daily skincare routine. It has never irritated my sensitive skin which is always a concern for me. And because I suffer from Rosacea, my face was always dry and red but Routine Woke Glow magically eliminated the discomfort. My skin is really glowing and smooth.

Jolene’s Best Lipstick for A Pop of Colour

Jolene Hart Clean Beauty Swap

Jolene’s Best Lipstick for A Pop of Colour

Check out what clean alternative Health Coach Jolene Hart is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

While I don’t wear foundation most days, I regularly reach for lipstick to make me feel put together. My favorite shades are vibrant fuschias, dabbed on over balm for a pop of color that isn’t overpowering.

Jolene’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Lipstick

I love a lipstick that delivers a great pop of color (fuchsia pinks are my favorite), with ingredients that are healthy enough to be edible. After all, we ingest out lip products little by little every time we eat, drink, or lick our lips.

I loved this Nars Lipstick in “Funny Face”; Now I love The Organic Skin Co. Lip Service in “Wisteria”

I love the bright fuchsia of Nars’ Funny Face lipstick; it was my go-to in my beauty editor days. But about 11 years ago I swapped over all of my personal care products to healthier versions, and this one had to go. Not long after, it made a list of lipsticks with the highest lead content, which reinforced my decision. Today, I have a whole lineup of similar natural colors, but I reach for The Organic Skin Co.’s Wisteria, a bit more of a berry tone but still vibrant with a blue undertone.

Delilah’s Best Gel for Bouncy Curls

Delilah’s Best Gel for Bouncy Curls

Check out what clean alternative Blogger Delilah Orpi is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

I’ve been using green products for many years and have recently switched all my hair care as well. I have fine, thin curly and wavy hair and prefer lightweight products that provide long-lasting hold and give me defined, soft, bouncy curls. I love a good lathering shampoo, lightweight conditioner, and hard hold gel without all the fragrance and harmful ingredients in more conventional brands.

I loved this DevaCurl Ultra Defining Gel; Now I love Raw Curls

The most difficult product to find for curly and wavy hair is a good styling product. For me, that’s a hard hold gel and there are not many in the green beauty world. I need a gel that not only gives me hard hold, but that also leaves my curls soft, defined, shiny, and bouncy.

Julia’s Best Bodywash To Feel Fresh

Julia’s Best Bodywash To Feel Fresh

Check out what clean alternative product Blogger Julia Ferrari from Fresh Beauty Fix is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

With over 10 years’ experience in the beauty industry, I’ve tried my fair share of new skincare routines, on-trend ingredients and up and coming indie brands. I get a real buzz from discovering new products before they’re on everyone’s radar and am always on the lookout for the ultimate skincare solution, but increasingly I seek out natural and sustainable options that still pack a punch when it comes to performance.

Julia’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Bodywash

To be honest body washes aren’t products I used to pay much attention to compared to skincare which feels more exciting and innovative. But considering I wash the vast majority of my skin with this product I feel it’s time to turn my attention to it and focus on clean formulations with a low impact on the environment.

I loved this Rituals Foaming Shower Gel; Now I love ZWP Activated Charcoal Soap Bar

I admit I do get taken in by new products and claims and love to try out brands that offer something a little different. In that respect Rituals’ Foaming Shower Gel was fun to use as the gel gradually transforms into a light creamy mousse, with a beautifully relaxing white lotus fragrance. But with Zero Path Waste offering a shorter cleaner ingredients list, streamlined easy-to-recycle packaging and strong ethos to reduce waste, their charcoal soap bar is now my go-to body wash.

Laura’s Best Eye Serum, for Fine Lines

Check out what clean alternative product Blogger Laura Bruj is using to a conventional product and why!

A Little Bit About Me

I’m a Clean Beauty Blogger, and I constantly look for products that can help improve my skin, reduce aging signs and overall help me look my best.

Laura’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Blush

In the past couple of year, I discovered that my skin is aging, haha, and the first fine lines that bothered me were in the eye are, so I realized I need a better eye moisturizer, since the current eye cream didn’t worked wonders anymore. My skin is really dry 3 out of 4 seasons, so I need a product that moisturizes well, and also work well with makeup.

I loved the Clinique All About Eyes; Now I love Java Skincare Eye Serum

I wanted a similar product, a rollerball applicator, and caffeine as a potent ingredient, that can help depute and reduce fatigue signs, but without any harmful chemicals.

Renata’s Concerns: What I Look For In a Blush

I had the hardest time ever finding natural alternative to Nars Orgasm blush, there’s something about that peachy tone with gold undertones that flatters every skin tone!

I loved this Nars Blush in “Orgasm”; Now I love Inika Mineral Blush in “Peachy Keen”

I had the hardest time ever finding natural alternative to Nars Orgasm blush, there’s something about that peachy tone with gold undertones that flatters every skin tone! My own switch was a decade ago when natural make up was not only hard to find, but also fifty shades of beige without fun and exciting products in sight. Thankfully the green beauty scene has exploded since and now I can offer you more than 20 clean alternatives to it!
