What exactly is in a moisturizing strip?

Link to What exactly is in a moisturizing strip?

    One of the least green things about me is that I use disposable razors. It's shameful, I know, but I've been known to use the same one for at least two weeks in hopes of being less wasteful, and I simply cannot afford the upkeep that a reusable Venus or an Intuition requires. The complete deterioration of the moisturizing strip or a serious case of razor burn are usually my signals to throw out my old razor and replace it with another, and unfortunately it's usually the...

  As of late, my skin hasn't been looking its best. I'm sure it's due to some combination of the heat (which means my face is pretty much constantly sweating) and the time of month it happens to be, but I've been more concerned with fixing the problem than pinpointing the cause.  I can easily drive myself crazy when trying to determine whether or not a (usually harmless) change in my routine is to blame. Instead of stressing out about a tiny breakout and overall redness, I found a...

Link to Burt’s Bees Aloe & Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer Review

Ingredients (provided at burtsbees.com)- “ethyl alcoholwater, hamamelis virginiana (witch hazel) water, glycerin, fragrance, aloe barbadensis leaf extract." This product receives a hazard score of 4 on the Cosmetic Safety Database, and the only ingredient with a hazard score above a 3 is fragrance. The bottle says the fragrance is natural, and I guess that's just vague enough to make it seem less threatening. The CSD also lists Sodium Benzoate as an ingredients,...

With my approaching period, I've been feeling not quite myself lately. I've been eating everything in sight without a second thought. My skin and my hair haven't been behaving themselves (My clay and eggs mask had positive but fleeting results), and after walking Clem and Winston every day this week, my feet are sore and actually pretty smelly (It happens to the best of us).  One night this week, in an attempt to make myself look and feel less haggard, I made time for a

Link to Eco Store Lemon Cream Cleanser Review

I was thrilled when Eco Store USA offered to send me two products to try in exchange for a review on my blog, especially after checking out their products! Aside from Method (which doesn't really have the most impressively safe ingredients),natural and eco-friendly cleaning products are something that I haven't really devoted much time to trying. This seemed like the right time, so I chose the Lemon Cream Cleanser as my first product to review. Ingredients (provided at ecostoreusa.com)- "Water, Calcium carbonate (chalk), Plant based anionic surfactants, Plant based glycerine, Plant based thickener, Xanthum gum, Lemon verbena oil." I couldn't find this...
