Affordable Natural Beauty Care

While I was pregnant, I started trying to use cosmetics free of harmful chemicals. Now, even post pregnancy, I try to use these products still because some of them have become favorites of mine.

Some natural cosmetics are outrageously priced, but everything on this page is under $10!

Review: This polish lasted for weeks on my toenails which was great once my belly grew too large to reach my feet.  It went on smoothly and they have some really nice colors.

Honeybee Gardens - Odorless Nail Polish Remover 4 oz - Nail CarePolish Remover
Honeybee Gardens
Acetone free and is fortified with vitamin E and aloe.
Review: This polish remover takes a little bit longer to remove the polish than acetone but it does the job.  It has a pleasant, non-strong smell.  It feels a little oily so I rinse before I apply new polish.
