Organic Beauty Talk
We love when bloggers share true, long-term experiences with products. Committed to honest reviewing, this site typically discloses the length of time a product was used before writing the review.

From advice for incorporating the natural way into your travels to natural pet and home care products, this straightforward blog covers a broad spectrum of beauty-related interests. The content keeps fresh this way, never stale.
Product reviews and sustainable fashion in one place. While most natural beauty blogs are geared toward those who have already made the switch to natural products, this blog also helps novices. One of our favorite features is their following celebrity eco-beauty news.
Many people assume that natural beauty means you can't stay current. Feel Good Style disproves this theory. There's plenty of trend-focused news like shopping apps, new product launches and subscription beauty box finds. They have tutorials for recycling old clothes into new fashions and turning leftover veggies into sustainable homemade products. Healthy habits for an overall more beautiful, healthy you.

Part of the Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care line, this blog is an encyclopedia of essential oils, botanicals, and vitamins. Benefits, uses and application are all discussed.
All their products are made on their organic farm. The content and style are pretty dry, but the comprehensive overview of the items ensures you can find products with ingredients that address your particular skin needs.
Natural Beauty Workshop
Calling itself a workshop is no lie. This site doesn't really review individual beauty products. Instead, it primarily promotes making your own homemade concoctions. Though it does also offer up tips to make your existing products last longer, application tutorials, interviews with industry insiders and more.
Every beauty blog has a brown sugar body scrub or avocado face mask. Natural Beauty Workshop is different, though. It's bursting with unique skin care combinations like grapefruit and eucalyptus soap bars or a chickpea and almond sugar scrub. Readers are carefully walked through each step so even someone new to homemade products can have a successful first go.

Mostly known for their yearly Beauty Shortlist Awards, The Beauty Shortlist was voted one of the UK's top beauty blogs two years in a row. While they have spent the last five years handpicking the best products on the market, not all selections are eco-friendly or natural.

This healthy beauty and lifestyle blog written by Danielle Messina is sassy and funny. After winning her battle with breast cancer, she decided that she needed to live a more natural and better life. Did that mean sacrificing any of the glamour she was used to? She didn't think it should.
From skin care to hair and nails, Danielle wants to help readers find natural products that make them feel confident and pretty. We're big fans of her "Buy This, Not That" column where she provides eco-friendly swaps for harsher, less natural products. While many beauty blogs are organized by topic, Danielle also organizes by brand. It's even easier to find more products you know you'll love.

Short, fun posts get to the point quickly without sacrificing valuable information. When we think about skin care and beauty regimens, we often forget about fragrance. Fragrances can contain chemicals that are harsh on skin.

Millennial skin care advice from a millennial. This blog is a casual, fun and pun-filled approach to beauty advice with a cool, modern slant.

One of her newest but greatest features highlights garden-to-table cosmetics, taking DIY beauty to the next level. Not only are you encouraged to create your own beauty concoctions, but to do so by growing the ingredients yourself.
Naturally Paula primarily focuses on cosmetics and skin care products, but she will veer off into vitamins and superfoods. Paula loves to post pictures of the products open or in swatches on her skin. She sometimes even posts pictures of herself wearing a full makeup application at the end of the review. This is the best way to get a real sense of color range and coverage.
