Series: Swap YouTuber Favourites for Green Beauty Alternatives #4
(contains affiliate links marked *)

I hope everyone is enjoying this series of blog posts? They take me a while to put together but I have fun looking for Green Beauty swaps. In most cases I can give a personal recommendation but other times I'm virtual window shopping which is dangerous as I'm adding to my wish list!

Clarins Stretch Mark Minimizer - nice an easy one for me to suggest swaps and whilst I don't have experience of pregnancy you all know that it doesn't stop me using Mum to Be products. Straight away two that spring to mind are Nom Nom Camillia and Vanilla Stretch Butter and Ermana Sooth Mama Body Oil

Zoella Hand On Heart Hand Cleanser - looks like Zoella has been influenced by those Bath & Bodyworks PocketBac Sanitizers that are popular on YouTube. I understand that there are occasions when you can't get to soap and water but the ingredients in these products are terrible. Swap this one for Dr Bronner’s Lavender Hand Sanitizing Spray, Green People Organic Children’s Sticky Hand Sanitiser or Intelligent Nutrients Organic Sanitizer

Lush Love & Light Hand Cream - you're probably surprise to see me suggesting a swap for Lush but sadly their products are not to my standards when it comes to ingredients. Swap this one for *Odylique Lemon Butter Hand Smoothie or Pai Fragonia & Sea Buckthorn Instant Hand Therapy Cream

Garner Pure Active Micellar Water - I have a sneaky suspicion that micellar waters not as popular in the Green Beauty community. I could be wrong but many of us like balms, oils and double cleansing however there are a couple of alternatives out there. Swap for the newly launched Evolve Liquid Crystal Micellic Cleanser or Sukin Micellar Cleansing Water.

Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder - high street powders tend to have a few added ingredients that you wouldn't see in natural mineral brands, for instance from my research this powder contains Dimethicone. I believe Nars is a cruelty free brand but they are owned by a parent company that tests. Personally, my favourite mineral make up brand is Everyday Minerals and they offer a range of setting/finishing powders.
