Wish List #1

I've been very inspired by all the natural beauty and lifestyle blogs I've been reading lately. I'm constantly checking on Bloglovin', a site that allows you to 'follow' blogs and posts updates on one update page so it's super easy to stay up to date with all your favorite blogs!

From reading all the blogs, I now know about a TON of new natural brands and products! So, I thought I would share my new wish list with you! I've also found some natural products on my own I'm excited to try.


Zosimos Botanicals Honeybush Acne Serum
-I placed an order with Zosimos the other day and I'm really excited to try this in the $3 sample size. The ingredients look AMAZING. I'm hoping this will replace my Skin Ceuticals Phyto+, because that has phenoxyethanol and I'm on the move to 'ultra-pure'. The Phyto+ is more for fading scars, but these ingredients look like they will be great for preventing acne and therefore hopefully no more scars!
Ingredients: Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil; Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Seed Oil; Calophylium Tacamahaca (Tamanu) Seed Oil; Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Oil; Vegetable Glycerin; Organic Cyclopia Intermedia (Honeybush) Leaf Extract; Tapioca Starch.

Zosimos Fool's Gold Cream Shadow
-I also ordered some mini pots as well, which are $3 little mini samples! There are a ton of options for samples and I'm excited to try the cream shadows.

Zosimos Primer Prep -
-I got a mini pot of this one too. It's tinted, but not supposed to be a foundation or anything. The one ingredient I'm a little unsure of is hydrolized silk. I've done some research but am not sure of the effects of it in skincare products aside from that it makes the product feel smooth. If it's anything like silicones, I'm going to be upset!
If you know anything about it, please comment on this post or tweet me @iluvjesse444

Waxelene - recommended by Mary from her blog Pure Makeup

Osmia Organics Spot Treatment - Found out about it from Britanie's Favorites Video

Osmia Luster Lip Repair - From Britanie's Blog

Osmia Lavender Pine Soap
-Two of my favorite scents combined! This sounds amazing. $12 for me is pretty pricey for a bar of soap, but hopefully in the future I'll get to try it!

Nourish Deodorant in Lavender Mint - Also from Britanie's video

After I finish my Honey Girl Organics Toner, I was to try some pure rose water or hydrosol as a toner!: Organic Bulgarian Rose Water

Jane Iredale Magic Mitt - Found out about it from Britanie's post as well.
-This is currently number one on my wish list. It's a mitt made of thin microfibers that apparently removes ALL makeup with only warm water. It gets great reviews and I'm really interested to see if it works for me!

Shikakai Powder
-Also going to pick up some more Shikakai powder to mix with some brown sugar or raw sugar for a scalp scrub. I love the cleansing power of Shikakai! Cleans but doesn't strip, leaves hair soft, no conditioner needed!

That's it for now! What are some things on your wish list to try??


  1. Hydrolised silk is completely different to silicones - it's made of natural organic proteins and is totally water-soluble. I've only ever used it in hair or nail products tbh (because the proteins it's made of are natural, they mirror the natural amino acids found in your hair, allowing the the sericin (hydrolised silk) to permate into your hair and moisturise from within, rather than creating a film over it to trap moisture inside, so it's really good for dry hair; and it's really good for preventing brittleness in nails), but I can't imagine it would do any harm at all to your skin (...and would make your face hair all soft and moisturised...not that I'm saying you have a hairy face...but, like, everyone has at least a little face hair, right? so it'd be nice to keep that in good condition...).

    1. Thank you so much for that information! I was really wondering if was water soluble, specifically if it would break me out. Thank you again!

    2. Obviously everyone's skin is different so I couldn't guarantee that it wouldn't cause breakouts - I wish skin sensitivities were more predictable - but it's definitely a substance I would consider very unlikely to cause problems, it's very gentle.

  2. Ooh great wish list!! You will love the Magic Mitt - it's amazing. I also can't wait til you try out Osmia!

    1. I ordered the magic mitt and am shipping it home so it should be there when I get back!!! Can't wait to try it. And I emailed Sarah Monday (I think) but haven't heard back yet!

  3. Love it! So glad I found your channel and blog (I talked to you on Instagram about Face Naturals.) I don't know if you've used rose products before, but rose breaks me out like crazy, so just be careful if you haven't used it.

    I wanted to thank you for all of the great ideas in your videos. I've been slowly getting through them and was soo excited to find The All Natural Face. I am going to place a big order with them soon and I couldn't believe the great prices. I am SUPER excited about the perfume oils... I am very sensitive to fragrance and can't use anything artificial. I am ordering the sampler pack of perfume oils and that's a big one on my wish list!

    Thanks again!


    1. Oh yes, hi! Sorry for the late response! I never would have thought rose would break me out because of the fact it's supposed to be soothing and calming but I'll definitely have to keep that in mind! Thank you so much about my videos! And I'm so glad you are interested in the all natural face - I love them! What do you think you're going to pick up besides the perfume oils?
