Following up on the amazing success of its Honest line of natural personal care, cleaning and baby products, The Honest Co., co-founded by actress Jessica Alba, debuted a new line of skincare and make-up products called Honest Beauty.
The products are made without parabens, phthalates, paraffins, formaldehyde carriers, PEGs, steareth-n, propylene glycol, butylene glycol, petrolatum, mineral oil or synthetic fragrances.
Customers have the choice or purchasing products separately, or signing up for one of the company’s bundles, which includes three products for only $50. There is also a free trial available for only a $5.95 shipping fee.
The skincare line includes cleansers, moisturizers, a primer and a product we love called Magic Balm, which is a blend of organic fruit and botanical oils to sooth and moisturize.
The makeup line includes primer, concealer, foundation, tinted moisturizer, mascara, eyeshadow, eye liner, lip crayons, lip gloss, a cream blush and a luminizing powder.

Based on a “less is more” philosophy, and a love of plants, holistic aesthetician Evan Healy created a line of natural skincare products using organic ingredients. Each product is hand-made and based on her approach to skin health, which is using innovative methods that value traditions and simplicity, such as plant lore, aromatherapy, homeopathy and Ayurveda.
Part of her offering is an ayurvedic line of products, including this Lemongrass Facial Polish. A cleanser, exfoliant, mask and skin tonic that smoothes and refines the complexion and balances uneven pigmentation, it offers pore cleansing while polishing the skin.
It also features a selection of Ayurvedic medicinal plants, including herbs, roots, bark and flowers traditionally known for their restorative effects such as Neem, Tulsi, Manjishtha and Arjuna.
“I created it specifically to purify and energize the skin, polish and exfoliate dead, dry surface cells peacefully without relying on the devitalizing action of chemical acids and peels so common in the skin care products today,” Healy says on her website.
It sells for $29.95 for 3 ounces at www.evanhealy.com.
