Natural Beauty Care Products You Need to Try
I’m often asked what I use for beauty products, especially for my hair and skin. And I get why. There are so many products on the market claiming to be all-natural. It’s super overwhelming to know which ones are worth the money. So, it makes sense to turn to the people we know and trust to steer us in a direction.
After having cancer, people close to me know how super-aware I am of the ingredients I put both in and on my and my family’s bodies. Even before organic and eco-friendly products were trendy, I was seeking out the best toxin-free beauty products that are gentler on our bodies, our bank account, and the planet.
Without further ado, here are 3 products that I use all the time and love. They’re affordable, high quality, and in the words of Outcast, will leave you feeling “so fresh and so clean clean.”

Primally Pure Deodorant
If I told you the number of natural, aluminum-free deodorants I’ve tried, you wouldn’t believe me. The number is seriously obnoxious. But most either didn’t work at all or left a painful red rash under my arms.
I tried Primally Pure for one day and knew that it was the real deal. When I ran out, I ordered more, and it still worked. You see, most deodorants I had success with in the past would blissfully work the first time around. But my body would get used to and eventually overpower the product. I was still spending money and no longer getting the results I was after.
Not only is Primally Pure one heck of a powerful deodorant, but it comes in a variety of ahh-mazing smelling scents. The detoxifying charcoal is Primally Pure’s best selling deodorant. Still, I prefer the Balancing option, which smells like fresh-cut geraniums. The smell of summer year-round…in your armpits! I know quite a few people who don’t like fragrance at all—if you fall in that camp, there’s a Soothing unscented version as well.
The best part is that there were no itchy, red bumps after a week of using this deodorant. And I feel good knowing that my deodorant doesn’t contain the potentially cancer-causing aluminum—gotta protect the ladies, right?
Natural deodorants get a bad rap for not working as well as the traditional drugstore brands that are full of toxic chemicals. But Primally Pure will prove all of the naysayers wrong. Check out their Natural Deodorant Myths Debunked post to answer common misconceptions.

Country Thyme Bath & Body
Teaching my girls the importance of taking care of their bodies is easy with products like Country Thyme Bath & Body. Some lotions and soaps are made with harsh chemicals and fragrances that irritate the skin. But I’ve found that the Country Thyme ones are gentle enough for my almost 3-year-old’s skin and my 30-something-year-old skin. Can’t beat buying one product for all of the household ladies!
You know I believe in supporting local businesses when I can. And Country Thyme Bath & Body is made right here in Iowa, by my aunt.
For those of you who don’t live in Iowa, it’s easy as pie to order online. Use my code FALL20 to receive 20% off your order.
My girls and I all use the Country Thyme lotion and bar soap. It’s seriously the best. Especially during the dry weather months, or after being in the chlorine pools of summer. The mango lotion bar works great on the kiddos for some additional moisturizing!
Always ready for an impromptu spa night, my little beauties adore some of the more indulgent Country Thyme products as well. Every once in a while I like to surprise each of them with a colorful bath bomb―they love watching them dissolve as the colors fill the bathtub! They smell as amazing as they look! Since my aunt makes these safe for her own family to use, I don’t have to worry about my littles being exposed to unnecessary chemicals.
Because I can’t leave myself out of the spa night treats, I love to end my night with the whipped body butter – lavender fields. Perfect to apply after a shaving!
I love the memories I’m making with my girls during our spa nights. And what I love even more is knowing that the products we’re using during those nights are clean, natural, and supporting a local business owner. Give my aunt Dana some love on social by following her @countrythymebb
All-Nutrient Organic Hair Care
With the upcoming season change, I feel the need to shout out to All-Nutrient Organic Hair Care.
Anyone else love the feeling after you’ve been to the salon and your hair feels so clean and smooth? With All-Nutrient’s hydrate line, my hair feels like that after every wash. There’s less build-up, and it feels sleek and soft for days. Yes, I only wash my mop every 2-3 days, so it’s better for my hair not to get dried out – plus it saves me loads of time getting ready when I don’t have to blow dry my hair.
The ingredients aren’t just safe, they’re pronounceable! When I can easily pronounce and don’t feel the need to Google every ingredient, I know a product is safe for my girls to use.
Anyone else relate to brushing girls’ hair after being tangled in chlorine or the wind? Usually, it’s a task and a half, but it’s not an issue at all with All-Nutrient. This summer was heavenly after trips to the pool didn’t end in a fight to comb through 3 little girls’ snarls.
Regardless of your hair type, texture, or color, there is an All-Nutrient product for you.
Well, that’s it for my natural beauty care product review! If you try any of these 3 products, let me know how you liked them by tagging me on social @dawnmarie.co. Also, check out my other favorite household and health product reviews on the Mental Edits website.
