Think eco-beauty is hard to find? Think again. Celebrating its one-year birthday this month, Futurenatural.com, the brainchild of self-confessed organic glamazon Emma Pezzack, is like a gigantic online Sephora for EcoStilettoistas. We’ve got her faves for the season, plus a discount and freebie for you. Emma says:
Pure & True Affirm Multi-Vitamin Age-Defying Serum: Contains vitamins A, B, C, and E, rejuvenating oils of immortelle and rosehip, DMAE (plant amino acid), moisture-attracting hyaluronic acid and potent antioxidants. We conducted several trials over different skin types and the vote was unanimous: This serum is phenomenal. Each one of us reported plump, super-hydrated, soft, radiant and more youthful-looking skin. It’s a bit on the pricey side but a little goes a long way and because it truly works, I think it’s a small price to pay for gorgeous skin.
Face Boutique Peachy Clean Foaming Face Wash: With the super delicious smell of fresh peaches, this gentle but effective cleanser soothes troubled, normal, combo or oily skin, gently washing away excess oil and preventing nature from going into oil over-drive! Peachy Clean is full of fruit acids, no colors, no chemical lathering agents and ingredients that have been specifically chosen to actively normalize skin function giving you healthy, clear, even skin. The whole line is to die for and the packaging is sublime.
Afterglow Natural Massage Candle in Bourbon: This soy-wax candle scented with pure essential oils has a deep air of decorum spiked with an undercurrent of scandal: Silky and oaken with a spicy caramel finish. Use it as a scented candle, then when you’re ready, blow it out, dip the body brush in the melted wax and paint the delicious warmth on areas to be massaged. When heated, the wax liquefies into a high-slip massage oil that softens and hydrates with shea butter, jojoba oil and more. Because the candle never gets too hot, you can pour straight onto skin for a silky, warm sensation. Great with the lights on, even better with the lights out.
Tsi-La Organic Perfume in Ilang Ilang: Think of this a kind of a cross between exotic and sophisticated spices and the most decadent, delicious vanilla bean ice-cream you’ve ever smelled: This is the perfect scent to wrap yourself up in over the chill months! Composed of essential oils, it’s delicious, creamy, floral and saturated with sugared citrus fruits and lush vanilla orchids. What’s really gorgeous though is that Tsi-La fragrances contain no phthalates, artificial fragrance or color. The smell doesn’t last as long as conventional fragrance because it doesn’t contain the toxic chemical binders that are in your normal fragrance but I’d rather spray more often than douse myself with harmful chemicals any day.
100% Pure Fruit Pigment Lip Glosses: I’ve been on a constant quest to find the perfect natural lip gloss for years and finally have found the holy grail. These super-delicious and gorgeous-smelling lip glosses are created with patented fruit pigments and the formula is chock full of vitamin E and shea butter to drench your lips with moisture. The colors apply sheer and ultra glossy but unlike most conventional glosses, you don’t have to worry about smearing your lips or ingesting with petrochemicals. And the formula isn’t at all sticky but gives that high shine you expect from your lip-gloss. Gorgeous.
