3. 100% Pure Brightening Serum, $42
This skin brightening serum uses all natural ingredients -- including aloe, organic rose water, vitamin C, licorice, cranberry and pink grapefruit -- to enliven dull-looking skin. The serum is also free of harsh lighteners and chemicals.
4. Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Hemp Almond Pure-Castille Soap, $10
Dr. Bronner’s is an all-natural, multi-tasking miracle. The soap can be used for face wash, shampoo, body wash, shaving cream, laundry detergent, floor cleaner and more. The formula is available in a number of scents, but the almond scent smells heavenly, and it’s made from essential oils. All of Dr. Bronner’s soaps are paraben free.
5. Dr. Hauschka Rose Day Cream, $38.44
