My skin is on the sensitive side. I find that natural products work best for me. Generally, natural ingredients are gentler compared to the chemicals used in regular products.  Regular products usually give me a bad reaction; I’ve experienced everything from allergic reactions, redness and irritation.

For those who have sensitive skin like mine, I wanted to share a couple of my favorite natural brands and top products from each collection:

1. Thesis Beauty

Founded by a family of vegetarians, Thesis Beauty is a company with a 'purist' philosophy. Made with premium certified organic ingredients, all products contain zero artificial ingredients or synthetics. Also, all products are vegan and cruelty-free with eco-friendly packaging.

Thesis Beauty Extra Mild & Non-Abrasive Poppy Seed Face Scrub

Thesis Beauty Poppy Seed Face Scrub

“An aromatic powder that transforms into an invigorating scrub when mixed with water. This scrub puts me in a better mood – it has perfect consistency, and does a great job buffing and polishing my skin. Plus, the ingredients are so natural and healthy – you can actually see the poppy seeds!” 

If you have sensitive skin, it can be difficult to find an exfoliator that’s gentle enough yet effective. This facial scrub is all-natural, containing a wonderful combination of ingredients:

  • Natural, Premium Kaolin Clay
  • Organic Poppy Seeds
  • Organic Rosehips
  • Organic Orange Peel

Thesis Beauty All-Natural Body Scrubs

“Every time I use this scrub, it feels like I’m getting a spa treatment. It exfoliates my skin and leaves it completely moisturized. I don’t even need to put on lotion after using it, which saves time and energy. I use it when my skin feels dry and always after shaving. While this scrub comes in various “flavors,” I personally love the Rose Vanilla Sorbet; you can see the rose petals in the formula and it smells amazing. So indulgent.” 

Exfoliating and moisturizing at the same time, these addictive scrubs contain dead sea salts and Himalayan salts which detoxify and re-mineralize skin. Meanwhile, creamy organic shea butter and coconut nourish and moisturize. It’s the a great remedy for dry heels and feet. We also found it to be effective for dry heels and feet. Did we mention how delicious these scrubs smell? Sweet Raspberry mint is yummy and refreshing, all at the same time. After pampering yourself with these indulgent scrubs, skin feels so hydrated that you may not need to apply lotion. Body Scrub Raspberry Mint, $19.95 (currently on sale) at
