I know for a lot of people Sephora is an easy place to shop, so after my thorough browsing experience, I thought I'd challenge myself to see if it would be possible to create a completely non-toxic skincare routine using only products sold at Sephora. Here's what I came up with!
Keep in mind that I haven't actually tried most of these, so I can only speak to their ingredients, not their efficacy. Everything is free of the regular nasties like parabens, phthalates, silicones, petroleum, PEGs, and dyes, and is also free of phenoxyethanol - which presented quite a challenge, let me tell you!
Makeup Remover: Ole Henriksen Pure Truth Melting Cleanser
Cleanser: REN ClearCalm Clarifying Clay Cleanser
Toner/Face Mist: Caudalie Grape Water
Face Oils: Lea Journo Revive French Plum Oil / Sunday Riley Juno Hydroactive Cellular Face Oil
Eye Cream: Tata Harper Restorative Eye Creme
Face Scrub: Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser
Mask: REN Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial
So, is it possible to create a full non-toxic, natural skincare routine at Sephora? Yes. Is it easy? No. And it's also pretty costly.
These eight items came to a whopping $497! I think you could do a lot better for your money shopping somewhere else, but in a pinch, Sephora could have you covered. Which is always good to know.
What do you think of Sephora? And - since I'm always up for some window shopping - let me know if you'd be interested in seeing something similar for makeup.
