Q. Makeup as an extension of my skincare?
I'm 19 and have dry/occasionally combination skin that can be sensitive. In the past year I have made a conscious shift to products that are naturally based (eg Korres, Ole Henriksen, Josie Maran, Laura Mercier) and free of harsh/damaging chemicals. I really want my makeup to enhance my skin and work as an extension of my skin care, rather than conceal it completely. I am looking for a tinted moisturizer/serum and a liquid or cream blush. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Q. Natural/organic cleanses/moisturizer/primer recommendations for combination skin!
Hey everyone!   I'd really appreciate any recommendations you guys have when it comes to going the natural route for skincare.   A few months ago, I had a severe reaction to medication which caused me major hormonal imbalance and basically destroyed my skin. I hadn't had breakouts since high school, and survived 4 years of university without a problem (the occasional pimple here and there that disappeared overnight)... Anyway, I sought professional help to treat the major systic acne that had developed due to my hormone imbalance. I have done the isolaz treatment and several microdermial abbresions to treat the excessive production of oil, and to exfoliate my skin. I am still using a topical at home (Retinol), but for the most part, my skin is back to normal! (Thank God!)   Obviously I don't want to tamper much with a good thing, but I am on a medical grade cleanser which I'm not particularly keen on. It has parabens and the like, and I'd really love to pursue natural alternatives now that everything seems under control.   I would say that I do still have combination-ish/(almost normal) skin... One thing is for sure, it is definitely not dry! I do find my cheeks and t-zone can get a little oily by the end of the day. I still have some hyperpigmentation and scarring from my breakout, and any product that can help treat these imperfections would be great.   I'm also an animal lover, so any vegan recommendations are top of the list. (I am a vegetarian, and currently working on at least being a dietary vegan... baby steps!).   I'm looking for cleanser and moisturiser/sunscreen recommendations, and am not opposed to a face primer if you think it will be beneficial . I don't need any night creams or deep hydrating products as my skin is never dry (I drink my 8-10 glasses of water a day ) Also, the professionals I've seen have never recommended a toner and I personally don't think it is necessary for my skin type.   I hope I've provided enough information for you, and sincerely appreciate your help in going the natural route!    Thanks so much <3   Alley.

Q. aloe gloe
So has anyone tried Aloe Gloe or heard of it?  It's an aloe drink that is absolutely fabulous!  It's pulp-free, and it's all natural!  Free of preservatives and what not, and made in Cali!  Anyway, the reason I ask is because I tried it last week and oh. my. goodness.  Not only did it taste delicious, it literally made my skin GLOW!  After I drank it, I looked in the mirror and was like "wow, did I do something different with my skincare routine this morning because my face looks really glowy?"  Then the next day, I did the exact same thing I did that morning, minus drinking aloe gloe, and sadly, no glowy face!   I just bought a couple more bottles this afternoon and am going to see if it really makes my face glow like it did!  Will post soon with an update, just thought I'd share and see if anyone has tried it/seen similar results!

Q. Natural Magazines
Is there a magazine on stand that only features natural and organic beauty products?

Since Sephoara upgraded their website, not only has the natural and organic tab been removed, but I no longer see the natural seal on products that previously had it.
