As an earnest mom – I try to be mindful of my household and it’s health – I do my best to do things as naturally as possible. For instance, in celebration of Earth Day today, the earnest household will not be turning on the television nor the lights. In general however, we try to eat only organic, use natural based cleaners, we make our own laundry detergents and I’m even one of them earnest cloth diapering moms – but I also take my skin care very seriously. It’s the only skin I’ve got! I try to steer clear of toxins in make ups and face creams/cleansers and even use simple vinegar/baking soda for hair care. Did you know that everything we put on our skin gets absorbed and actually goes into our bloodstream?! Think of all those chemicals listed on that cold cream sitting in the cupboard – needles to say, I was in need of a good facial cleanser and cream.
While poking about online looking for an earnest skin company for my dilemma, I found Urban Oreganics (https://www.etsy.com/shop/UrbanOreganics?ref=s2-header-shopname) and decided to try it out. Then, I earnestly feel in love. I’ve been using cleansing grains and facial cream (with SPF 20), I can be earnest and say both are wonderful! Best thing is – I know AND can pronounce every item listed in the ingredients. I’ve gotten complements on how “glowy” my skin looks, and I was even told I looked fresh faced.
The cleansing grains smell like yummy oatmeal (gluten free of course) and my skins feels clean and soft afterward. The facial cream (I got unscented but you can choose from their selection of natural scents), goes on with no greasy or sticky feel – the best part is it feels refreshing on my face. I feel like I’m getting salon quality cleanings in my very own earnest home – with zero toxins!
I must insist you try them out! https://www.etsy.com/shop/UrbanOreganics?ref=s2-header-shopname you will find face creams, masks, cleansers, toner, full body/hair care and mama-baby sections as well.

I will hopefully be trying urban oreganivs just as soon as I finish using my very expensive chemical products. A good read and very thought provoking about the things we put on our skin which then enters the blood stream etc. Thanks for the advice.
