For starters, I took a look at Healthy World, Health Child's list of trusted brands and decided to take Yes to Carrots for a spin since they taut that they are Petroleum, SLS & Paraben Free. I bought the Day Moisturzier with SPF 15 and Yes to Cucumbers Facial Cleaning Gel. My old beauty routine was Olay moisturizer and plain soap as a cleanser. I'm blessed with really good skin so I never really have used a facial cleanser. The moisturizer isn't too greasy and is pretty light and I like the smell of the cucumber cleanser.

For some variety, I did purchase a Bubble and Bee Coconut and Lime Lotion Stick and Rasberry and Vanilla Body Butter. A little goes a long way and you smell so awesome, someone might want to eat you.The lotion stick I keep in my purse for when I'm out of the house as it's convenient to use.
Since I was already purchasing shampoo, shower gel and lotions, I thought I would also take the Bubble and Bee lips balms for a spin. They had a deal on lip balms and since I keep them everywhere I ordered five ... one for my purse, work desk, kitchen, bathroom. They smell amazing and I don't find myself as addicted to them like the petroleum based lip balms.
I don't think I'm done searching for body care products as I mentioned above. I might venture into making my own using to cut down on the cost.
If you have a recommendation, comment or suggestion, let me know. I would love to hear it!
