The NOT So Glamorous Glammy Awards: Second Batch

Alexis Krauss

Glamour Magazine recently announced their 10th annual Glammy Award winners and we were shocked by all of the #beautybullshit lurking within the labels. So, last week we provided you with the first half of our list of #truthbeauty alternatives. As promised here’s the second batch of our favorite non-toxic products that will keep you healthy and looking fantastic!! Xoxo Alexis Remember if you really want to know about the #beautybullshit behind the Glammy Award winners, be sure to click on the product links to read what the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Database has to say about each product on the list. I promise you it’s not pretty.

1. Instead of Olay's Complete All Day Moisturizer with sunscreen AND parabens try Juice Beauty's SPF 30 Oil-Free Moisturizer. It's made with non-nano natural mineral zinc oxide, one of the healthiest forms of sunscreen on the market.

If you'd rather rely on the natural SPF of shea butter and coconut oil check out Alaffia's Africa's Secret Multipurpose Skin Cream.

2. I know it's an old stand-by but Cetaphil's really not that great. Instead of Cetaphil's Daily Facial Cleanser try S.W. Basics' Cleanser. It's extremely gentle and smells divine.

If your skin is oily like mine and you want something that'll leave your face feeling tingly and super clean, I recommend Dr. Bronner's Almond Castile Liquid Soap.

3. RoC's Retinol Correxion Eye Cream has the highest toxicity rating of all the Glammy Award winners. Bummer. Stay away from this chemical cocktail and try Jurlique's Purely Age-Defying Eye Cream.

4. Aveeno's Active Naturals Daily Moisturizing Lotion is fragrance-free (which is great) and is rated safe by the Environmental Working Group, however it still contains petrolatum. So if you want to rid your daily moisturizing routine of petrochemicals try Nubian Heritage's Raw Shea Butter Lotion which you can purchase here.

5. I know it smells pretty but Herbal Essences' Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo is full of synthetic fragrance. If you want a moisturizing shampoo with a lovely natural fragrance try Innersense's Pure Harmony Hair Bath Shampoo. If you hair is colored I strongly recommend their Color Awakening Shampoo. Their conditioners are incredible too!

6. It's a bit more of a splurge, but if you want deep conditioning without the hazards of Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner, try John Master's Honey and Hibiscus Hair Reconstructor. Or (surprisingly) go with the Glammy Award winner Pureology's Hydrate Conditioner. Hopefully next year we'll see Glamour including more brands like Pureology that are formulating safe and effective products.
