Delicious Living's annual Beauty & Body Awards makes it easy to shop the crowded personal care aisles at your natural products store. Try these winners and finalists!
Honestly, I’m fairly oblivious to the nuances of skin care and makeup. (What, exactly, is a “smoky eye”?) Other than religiously applying SPF moisturizer, the most I manage on a typical day is a simple face wash, a swipe of color on my cheeks and lips, and dabs of moisturizer around my eyes and mouth at night. I tend to stick with old favorites and fragrance-free items that don’t set off my sensitive nose.
So whenever I peek into the office of our beauty editor, Jessica Rubino, I’m awed by the array of natural washes, shampoos, makeup, and more that line every square inch of her shelves (and most of the floor). It’s fun to have her recommend new brands for me to try, such as Waxelene, a nifty, all-natural petroleum-jelly alternative. Jessica’s deep expertise in the natural beauty and body care realm makes her an invaluable resource for our entire team—and for you. Thanks to her, our 2014 Beauty & Body Awards once again highlight the absolute best-for-you products in a wide array of categories, making it easy to feel confident buying what you need—or trying something new—from your local natural products store. Beautiful!
