Naturally Sephora Makeup & Skincare Best Sellers


Sephora has a specialized logo for natural products to let you know which products are approved of being “natural.” In order for products to receive the natural seal, they must be formulated with a minimum of 90%:  antioxidants, botanicals, essential oils, fruit extracts, marine bioactives, minerals and vitamins. At the same time they must exclude at least six of the following ingredients: GMOs, parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, triclosan, synthetic fragrances and dyes….So, it’s a step in the right direction, but not perfect…be sure to still read the fine print before deciding what you want to put on your skin.

Below are some of Naturally Sephora’s best sellers…

eco deal of the day – collapsible rain barrel

rainbarrel.jpgRain barrels are a smart way to save money and precious water — just place one under a gutter and start capturing rainwater to water your plants.  What I love about these is that they’re portable and easy to store.

The wide mouth zips open for easy water collection; mesh screen helps keep out debris. Either dip in to fill pails and buckets or tap into the built-in nozzle at the base with your garden hose.  Comes in 3 sizes:  34, 50 and 74 gallon – $59, $79 & $92 respectively.
