I would like to purchase products that are good for my body and face and do not pose potential health concerns. I use lotion everyday and make up most days, and I don't want to be putting on harmful ingredients.
I'm not super concerned about all natural and organic all the time, but it would make sense that more natural is better....I think?
I want a good line of makeup and skincare that will work. I'm willing to pay more if I need to, but don't need expensive top of the line. I don't wear A LOT of makeup but I like a clean, fresh look most days and always wear a few things (mascara, eye liner, lip gloss, light foundation).
What lines would you suggest? Has anyone done any research or have a good resource to find healthy products? I found a website called GoodGuide but it does not rate certain lines (Bare Escentuals, Lancome...etc.). Thanks!
Try Josie Maran Cosmetics.
Their moisturizer consists of only 1 ingredient: Organic Argan Oil. You can read about the benefits of Argan Oil on the web or on her site. It works on your entire body. I use it on my face and lips, and on my elbows especially. It makes my skin so soft.
Also a lot of her makeup uses natural ingredients.

I have found the Environmental Working Group's cosmetic database indispensable
You can search by brand, product, or ingredient to view a listing of potential hazards, and with an overall rating for a product. Very informative, non-profit third party review - you can also suggest products for them to review if they haven't done one yet for what you are looking for.
With that in mind, I wish Sephora would carry Suki Cosmetics and Dr. Hauschka, right now I have to rely on Whole Foods or ordering from their specific sites, but these are staples in organic skin care - very luxurious and work wonders!! I also love the Tarte line that Sephora carries.
