Saturday Skin, Primally Pure and more nontoxic favorites | Waiting on Martha

The change of seasons brings about even more reason to give your skin a little TLC. You’ll quickly sense a moisturizing-obsessed theme here too; I’m giving extra attention to the hydrating and nourishing products that make me feel my best all over.

I recently went on a little spree with Saturday Skin — isn’t the packaging beautiful? And of course, I’ve been finishing my Colleen Rothschild favorites, too. Read about these current go-to’s below, and tell me if you’ve tried any, and what you think! Truly, MKR 

One. Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil. I’m a huge fan of Weleda; it’s an affordable, nontoxic brand that’s easy to find (hello, Target) and boasts effective products to boot. This cellulite oil helps tone and firm up the skin, using natural essential oils. You won’t find any fragrance, added color or preservatives in this nourishing and moisturizing oil. 

Two. One Love Organics Love + Charcoal Mask. One of my favorite things about OLO products is how hydrating they are. This luxurious mask uses aloe vera and charcoal to detox the skin, cleansing it but never drying it out. If you’re on the lookout for the perfect mask, you’ve got to try this one. 

Three. Saturday Skin Wide Awake Brightening Cream. I gravitate to all eye creams and balms as I’ve found my eyes to show my age. I recently tried a bundle of Saturday Skin products — they had me on their packaging!) and was pleasantly surprised to find the cream to be great at reducing puffiness. Its smooth application is refreshing and lovely. 

Four. Colleen Rothschild Sheer Renewal Cream. A lightweight, sheer, non-greasy moisturizer? Sign me up. I’ve since emptied this Colleen Rothschild cream and going back for more! It hasn’t caused any breakouts; instead, it’s left my skin happy and glowing. I love to wear it as a deep hydrating cream when I head to bed. 

Five. Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask. It wouldn’t be “Me Time” without a cooling face mask. There’s just something so satisfying about applying a mask that you can truly FEEL doing its magic on the skin. This blue wonder by Herbivore Botanicals is a bestseller at Waiting on Martha Home, and for obvious reason. #obsessed

Six. Kiel’s ‘Superbly Restorative’ Argan Body Lotion. Are you sensing a theme here? I’m obsessed with moisturizing my skin all over, especially as we hop into spring. I love this cult-classic body lotion for its ability to absorb into the skin quickly. It has Moroccan argan oil to thank for its antioxidant-rich blend that helps fight damage caused by free radicals and smooth texture. Yes and yes. 

Seven. Cap Beauty The Neat Matcha Sticks. Single-serve matcha packets are my new best friend. They’re perfect for travel; offering the smooth and calm focus — and a boost of antioxidants — of high-quality matcha tea. 

Eight. Marvis Toothpaste. If you’re on the nontoxic journey like me, then you’ll know how hard it is to find a great, all natural toothpaste. Marvis is the answer, my friends! I love the flavor and fresh effect of both the Whitening and the Cinnamon flavors — and I have yet to try the Jasmin Mint and Ginger Mint! 

Nine. Primally Pure Deodorant. Ah, natural deodorant. I’ve tried A LOT and I’ve nearly given up on the quest for an effective one after trying lots of duds. But Primally Pure has come to the rescue with their Lavender and Charcoal deodorants — they work. 

Ten. Colleen Rothschild Daily Defense SPF 25. I’ve been pretty religious about applying SPF lately, and this Colleen Rothschild cream makes it easy. It’s basically a primer that sits perfectly alone or under makeup with its smooth finish. 

Eleven. Saturday Skin Featherweight Daily Moisturizing Cream. Another favorite find from my recent Saturday Skin haul, this lightweight body lotion is a DREAM. It’s gentle, absorbs quickly and feels luxurious to the touch. I highly recommend if you’re on the hunt for the perfect warm-weather moisturizer. 

Twelve. Kora Skinfood Supplement. You know what they say; beauty comes from the inside out. I’ve recently been obsessed with these convenient single-serve skinfood supplements. They’re packed with nutrients to make you look — and feel — your best. Not only great for digestion, this blend is packed with antioxidants and immune-boosting ingredients. I add this blend to my daily smoothie and am loving it!

Thirteen. Saturday Skin Balancing Act Skin Smoothing Lotion. Okay, I stocked up on the Saturday Skin products, I know! But this lotion was too good not to try. It’s large, reasonably priced, and pleasantly gentle on my skin. It’s lightly scented and is wonderful to apply during my slower nighttime rituals. 

Fourteen. Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Purifying Cleanser. How could I forget the cleanser! It’s hard finding a nontoxic, effective face cleanser that doesn’t strip the skin of its natural oils and moisture, am I right? This one has you covered; its gentle blend of apple and peach extracts are simply lovely. I’m a huge new fan of this entire skincare line — stock up at Nordstrom!
