I was just wondering for those who use natural and organic skin care products, do you notice a real difference in your skin?

I want to start using organic products but I'm wondering if they're worth the cost...

I know one person who has tried it and I asked her about it and she really likes it. I have never personally tried it though...

I think I will but it is expensive! Hope it's worth it! I don' t think I have ever paid that much for skincare products.

I'm going to see if she'll add her opinion here, but she's probably a great person to ask about this since she carries so many brands. I've only used Wild Sage and I love it. Jennifer could probably give you a good recommendation though.

my two cents on Jan 20, 2007 @ 12:06 pm

hi there! misschickie asked me to chime in. so here goes....I started using natural skin care in 1999, when I discovered that there were other options than what I found at the salon or drugstore, just by searching the internet. For me it was a conscious decision to switch to natural. I liked the way the ingredients sounded and I felt better knowing I wasn't slathering on all sorts of chemicals onto my body. I also chose to focus on buying handmade products - to me it is very important to support the individual crafters not some faceless corporation. There are many wonderful products out there in every price range. I do think Wild Sage is one of the more affordable brands. But I've even seen some natural/organic brands out there that are $50 a bottle, which makes Talulah a bargain. Personally I think that if you are used to having a face cream last 2 years or want that miracle in a jar, you will be disappointed with natural products! Its more about long term goals and the overall health of your skin. But, I think that if you have very sensitive skin, you might experience a total turn around by removing synthetic chemicals from your skin (not that natural products can't ever cause reactions). I'd say try a few products from several brands to see how you like them and which you like best. Try some in every price range - you might find that the one you like best is also the most wallet-friendly of the bunch. Hope this helps. - Jen @ apothena

Thank you Jen on Jan 20, 2007 @ 06:34 pm

I was considering it for a long time, I just haven't really tried. I guess you never know, until you try something new...

I just found chickadvisor tonight! I was searching the web for natural skin care and came across Wild Sage, then Apothena and before I knew it, I spent my pennies!
If you read the back of most products, the ingredients are chemicals. Most main stream products are about selling more stuff and less about quality and integrity ( my rant). Smaller companies who have a stake in keeping things as natural and simple as possible, while participating in the marketplace appeal to me. I'm going to spend the money anyway and I would rather spend it with the best products I can afford, and not be seduced by hype and false hopes. Above all, I want to be an educated consumer and support women who are trying make a gig for themselves.

Wild Sage - buy it on Apothena! on Jan 24, 2007 @ 08:23 am

Just echoing some of the comments made here already. I absolutely agree with all the points made here - natural ingredients and supporting small business in particular.

I recently started with Wild Sage. It's a good deal on Apothena, and right now there is a ChickAdvisor special for gift-with-purchase, so if you are going to try it, now would be a great time to start!

Well said, Ginkyo Girl! on Jan 24, 2007 @ 10:21 pm

I think it's really important for us to be educated consumers and not just fall for all of the marketing we're constantly fed. That's the whole point of this site :D.

I also think it's important to remember that slathering chemicals on our skin does get into the blood stream and I don't feel good about that. Since I started using Wild Sage even Alex has noticed the improvements in my skin. It just looks more radiant in general.

Regardless of what brand you use, it's definitely a good idea to at least give it a try and find out what works for you.

Thanks Mamaluv for mentioning the deal!
