Would you like to review my natural handmade soap www.etsy.com/shop/soapycreek?
Natalie Eve Gómez (1 year ago)
Have you tried Inika Liquid Foundation? I think you'd like this too :) Excellent round up! Great video :)
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Not yet!
Mary Karla (1 year ago)
Do you like the certified organic baked highlighter? It's a pressed powder. Or are there any other pressed powder ones you suggest?
Eve (1 year ago)
what was required for u in the bare minerals?
Gabriella Amon (1 year ago)
Have you tried the Red Apple Lipstick Products?
ispeak4detrees (1 year ago)
Hi, do you have a video or recommendations for non toxic menstrual products?
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Yes! i have a video on healthy periods
Jennifer P (1 year ago)
Would you recommend pressed, liquid or cream foundation for someone with dry skin? I currently don't wear foundation but I feel like I am starting to need some coverage as I age. Thanks :)
Jennifer P (1 year ago)
Laura's Natural Life I will give them a try. Thanks :)
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I don't have dry skin, so I may not be the best judge. I think the au naturale cream foundation could be worth a shot!
Jennifer P (1 year ago)
+Laura's Natural Life okay, I will look for that type. Any favorite recommendations for dry skin? Thanks for responding :) Hope its okay to write this here but I am praying for you and baby 💜
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Probably cream or liquid. The method of applying powder can make dry patches come loose from the skin and appear worse.
loomknitstudio (1 year ago)
Can you do a luxury organic makeup video for those who want to splurge? thanks
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I should! Although...I don't know how much of what I own is luxury.
Hannah Gonterman (1 year ago)
Just wondering if you have any tips on men's products ?? My boyfriend is now interested in switching to more natural products (body wash and deodorant) Any advice ??
Jennifer P (1 year ago)
Hannah Gonterman my husband has been wanting to switch too. We are looking for a good shampoo, unfortunately he won't switch deodorants, he loves his toxic old spice 😢
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Yeah! EO has some more neutral to manly body wash and Schmidts & Primal Pit Paste would have men's deo
H. DeBeau (1 year ago)
@1:58 Did you say Formica? I'm looking for 'Best sites' to buy natural makeup besides vitacost
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Pharmaca :)
chris cannon (1 year ago)
great video. were you a trainer in sobe miami? you look like a passed friend , anyway great video. i and my wife us these all natural french milled soaps and love them. https://www.etsy.com/shop/CandysSoapBoxShoppe?ref=ss_profile
ullygecko (1 year ago)
Hi Laura! I love your videos. They've been so helpful. About the Aleavia, can you recommend any other cleanser? I have an iodine/shellfish allergy and can't use products with kelp in them.
ullygecko (1 year ago)
Thank you! I'll give those a try.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+ullygecko I also like the acure cleansers
ladydi60046 (1 year ago)
Hi Laura, Love your videos! I have been using green products for as long as I can remember! My, they have come a long way! I love that your generation is so passionate about our health! What is your recommendation for nail polish? I don't recall ever seeing a video on that! Keep up the good work! Thank-you!
ladydi60046 (1 year ago)
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
That is so awesome! Well, nail polish is tough because you can't really go completely toxin free there. I use 100% pure, Aila, and Tenoverten mostly.
LightofDawn7 (1 year ago)
What's a good powder for oily skin!?
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
RMS or W3LL People Realist
Jamie lynn (1 year ago)
You should try real purity's deodorant if you like the green tidings, I switched from it to RP. It's amazing!
Lisa Nez (1 year ago)
have u tried anything from world organic? they have different sets u can buy in their make up line. jus wanted to know your thoughts on this brand.
This video just made me jump up to go buy Root Pretty pressed shadows. Thanks for the recommendation!
Leslie R (1 year ago)
Laura what facial moisturizer do you recommend for combo skin?
The Ethical Fox (1 year ago)
I love your favorites! You mentioned liking gel eye liner but I haven't heard of a green beauty brand gel liner. Do you have one you recommend?
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I have the Root Pretty Gel Liner. I THINK Jane Iredale has one, too.
Xtrinatrina (1 year ago)
I love your videos! What skin type do you normally have?
Sense of Aesthetic (1 year ago)
I love the W3ll People Bio Brightener! So good!
Viktoria Gee (1 year ago)
Could you do a video about affordable non-toxic beauty that is still really good? Love the videos!!!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Coming very soon!
hellolindasau (1 year ago)
Ahh, I love the Josh Rosebrook Lift too! It smells so good :)
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
It does! Thanks for watching :)
Eva Kinnear (1 year ago)
Living libations! The purest I've ever found-and powerful to show results- Sea Buckthorn Best Skin Ever, Zippity Dew Dab, and the Rose creme!
MissRosellaAnn (1 year ago)
i love juice beauty! i wish their was more selection at my ulta though!! Cant wait to try some of these!!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Agreed! We don't have the whole line in ours, either sadly.
Carrie Cecava (1 year ago)
Thank you, thank you, again for a great video! :D So many ideas of things to try in 2017! I loved the ko and humble oils and I've been wanting to try the Kypris but, like you, I've been cautious about all the hype....I'll need to try it now cuz I trust your recommendations because everything I've tried that you recommend I have LOVED! Thanks lovely!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I will say I don't like the Kypris on its own, but combined it is such a great combo.
patty 8873 (1 year ago)
I prefer cream blush also and for some reason many makeup lines don't sell one. I always loved NARS but have been trying to find a cleaner one.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I do too! W3LL People, Honest, RMS are the ones I can think of off the top of my head.
Stacy Angel (1 year ago)
juice beauty is my winner too.
Tianna Sicilia (1 year ago)
so many awesome products!
Carina Combs (1 year ago)
Definitely want to try kypris dew sounds beautiful! I have been looking for a foundation what do you think about the Jane iredale bb cream? Thanks! I love your videos
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I didn't love it on my skin, but lots of people do.
Michelle K (1 year ago)
Would love to see a video on your favorite yoga pants . Also I use warrior protein powder . Why do you like the one you mentioned so much besides taste ? Great favorites!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I'll do a video on it soon. It's whey from grass fed cows and collagen, but it's the protein concentrate not isolate, which is super hard to fine.
Courtney De Leon (1 year ago)
Love you, love your videos, and love that you recommended (& love) Root!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Thank you!
The Choosy Chick (1 year ago)
This WILL be your best year yet. You are glowing! So curious about the Collagen Peptides - on my own 2017 list to try... Thanks for including Nudus our favorite lipstick! XO
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
They're really cool!!!
LightofDawn7 (1 year ago)
Also! Has anyone looked into the new Orly Breathable nail polishes!? They are 10 free and seem pretty great. Let me know what you all think! Trying to find some cheaper alternatives to green nail polishes and these seem pretty great. Their bottle sizes are bigger than their traditional line so that's cool too! Here's a link to their FAQ: http://www.orlybeauty.com/breathable-landing.html
Stephanie Barrette (1 year ago)
Great vid! Def going to check out that concealer :).
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Hope you enjoy it :)
McKristie Mannan (1 year ago)
If the Lily Lolo shadows meet your requirements, I would suggest them. I have a few singles and one of the multi sets. Awesome video and I'm glad the Vital Proteins worked for you. I love all of their products!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
I just got one of their new palettes! Thanks for watching :) So glad you enjoyed.
Christine E (1 year ago)
Great review! Just discovered your channel and you've inspired me to go more bold with my lipstick choices- you look gorg! Happy new year!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
YES GIRL! Bold lips make you feel so confident.
LightofDawn7 (1 year ago)
What's the best long lasting matte foundation!? I hear the Nu revolution foundation is amazing.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
It does not. I gives guidelines and then you can choose what you want to eat within the guidelines
LightofDawn7 (1 year ago)
Laura's Natural Life Thank you :) oh! Good to know! I wasn't sure if any of the organic brands created a mattifying foundation! Might try that with my Juice foundation! I also had one last quick question. Does the crave free cleanse get personalized to what every individual needs? I'm thinking of signing up for it soon because I plan on detoxing my body since I plan on getting off of birth control tomorrow.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
You are so sweet! I hope you find one that works for you! PS. 100% Pure has a mattifying primer, too.
LightofDawn7 (1 year ago)
Laura's Natural Life thank you!!! I couldn't remember if that was the foundation you had mentioned or not. I've make the complete switch of having only organic/green makeup products, but I've been having trouble with the foundation breaking up in my T zone! I use the Juice beauty photo-pigments foundation but I was hoping to use a mattifying foundation in the areas I need it most! Thank you so much for all the content you post on your channel by the way. Words can't express how grateful I am to have found you on YouTube! So helpful with my transition to a 100% organic lifestyle.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+LightofDawn7 yep! I have used that in several get ready with me's this summer. Another option is 10O% pure healthy skin. It's too matte for my skin personally.
greenjewelbeautea 1 (1 year ago)
Great recs Laura!💜💕 love your channel. And your passion! I feel I can truly trust your recommendations. Thank you!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Erin J thanks, Erin! That means so much to me knowing you feel that you can trust me!
Rebecca H (1 year ago)
how do you keep your gressa foundation so clean??? Mine leaks a ton around the lid and looks so messy. it gets worse everytime I shake it :/
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Rebecca H I actually wipe that part with my finger each day. I think it gets stuck in the twisty part when you shake it.
ginny lassiter (1 year ago)
Love that lipstick
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+ginny lowe thanks! It's so fun!
Nicole Ernst Boris (1 year ago)
Juice Beauty is my all time favorite find this past year. For foundation as much as I loved Gressa...couldn't use it. Complexion Resue from Bare Minerals to the rescue until I can either use Gressa again or something else like Juice Beauty or maybe will check out Silk Naturals for makeup. Pacifica has also been a most welcome find. Acure Organics and John Masters Organics are on my list to try for 2017 :)
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Nicole Ernst Boris ahhh I hate when that happens!! So glad you found new products you like!
Lydia (1 year ago)
where is your necklace from? its beautiful
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Lydia thanks! It's from a local crafter but I think her Etsy shop is called Sara D'Angelo jewelry
FaceByMeagan (1 year ago)
Yay I'm so happy you did this video! Loved seeing your favourites!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+FaceByMeagan so glad you enjoyed it!
katie smith (1 year ago)
I heard you talk about barre 3 in another video so I subscribed to their online workouts and I love it! Do you have any specific workout video that you like the most?
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+katie smith yay! Isn't t amazing? I have several favorites. Do you have the membership where you get the new weekly videos? If so, scroll back to end of June / early July. The one with Andrew and Katie. I think they were back to back. And the latest one with the studio owner from DC who wore the temporary metallic tattoos. Her bridge series in narrow v is killer!
Jessica Perez (1 year ago)
and I love the antioxidant dew! I feel like by itself for summer with a little sunset I'd be good to go💕
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Jessica Perez so true! It's perfect for summer
Jessica Perez (1 year ago)
I feel like you look different!! But in a good way :D Thanks for the vid, def. helpful💕
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Jessica Perez thanks! I did change the camera angle a little. Maybe that's it??
GRRA (1 year ago)
Love this video Laura! Can you recommend an eye primer and a makeup setting spray? Thank you! ❤
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+GRRA I wish! Those are two hard items. The w3ll people concealer doubles nicely as an eyelid primer. I am currently testing out the lily lolo primer. I think the all natural face has a setting spray, but I've only used it for metallic eyeshadows.
Britanie Faith (1 year ago)
Woot woot excited for this! sipping some coffee and watching your beautiful face! 💚🌿✨ Is the Honest Beauty foundation heavily scented? Been super curious to try but have heard for some it's very scented!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Beauty By Britanie woot woot!! It isn't. It smells a teeeeeny but like sweet tarts, but it's nothing compared to their other products. Most of them I've had to return for that reason.
aleeexisss00 (1 year ago)
loved it
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+aleeexisss00 thanks for watching!
Girl With Grit (1 year ago)
I love Vital Proteins--they do the best gelatin products! Love seeing your favorites from this year! Have you tried any Red Apple products? They're launching bronzer and blush later this month!
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
Yeah, it's so weird! I have a theory as to why, because all the ingredients are pure. I have not, but I imagine I would not enjoy it as I don't like blue tansy. I hear it's very comparable to the May Lindstrom Blue Cocoon.
Girl With Grit (1 year ago)
I'm so sorry you're allergic to their lipsticks! I absolutely love them and they are the only brand I've tried thus far that I don't react to. Have you tried the Mahalo Rare Indigo Balm?
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Girl With Grit they do! I have, but I am allergic to the lipsticks which is why I don't talk about them. Great shades, though. The eyeshadows aren't my fave. Something about their marketing just rubs me the wrong way personally so I've not tried a whole lot.
Hanna Wozniczka (1 year ago)
how much product is in the well people brightener stick? you should do a one brand tutorial with nu evolution!
Hanna Wozniczka (1 year ago)
Laura's Natural Life I am trying to compare price per gram between the well people stick and the RMS living luminizet
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Hanna Wozniczka TONS! It would last years I'm sure!! I did a few get ready with me's during the summer featuring all the products I have spread out across them.
Try Zuii Organic💄💋❤
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Joanna Svärd (Makeup artist) I need to!
Sara R (1 year ago)
Lots of great products! I appreciate your Best of videos. But I'm confused.  Whey protein and egg whites?  That's not natural, healthy, or cruelty free.  I guess I just assumed you're vegan, especially if you're a chronic illness warrior.  I'm a chronic pain warrior and becoming vegan majorly helped with the inflammation and pain. ♥
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Sara R I'm sorry you feel confused. I actually feel the opposite and am in severe pain if I don't eat meat. But I'm glad that veganism is a good fit for you.

The Juice Beauty new makeup line is hands down top 2 favorite green beauty makeup brands I LOVE. I have a lip crayon, thier mascara, and concealer. I am OBSESSED.
Laura's Natural Life (1 year ago)
+Axiologist Virgo the lip crayons are life!!!! I need to try the mascara.
