Best mascara

Mascara by ZuZu Luxe
Natural mascara is one of the hardest makeup products to pull off. But ZuZu's done it. On its own, ZuZu mascara won't give you the incredible length and curl that conventional mascaras do. But just use an eyelash curler first (it's quick!), be sure to apply twice, and it's seriously just as good, lasts just as long, and is way healthier for you with no flaking!

Safe and natural prevention of premature aging: That's what we're all about! And the eyes say it all. This ultra-nourishing formula firms, softens and smoothes the fragile skin around the eyes, and refines those pesky fine lines. We love it because it absorbs fast, so you can apply it under your makeup.

Best eczema cream

Pure + Simple Healing Propolis Hand Cream
We’ve tried almost every natural eczema cream on the market to get rid of pesky winter rashes this year. Some products worked, but alas, only for a short time. But then we found Pure + Simple's Propolis Hand Cream, and we were amazed. This product is by far the best out there. Rashes, dry skin, burns and wounds are soothed and healed quite quickly with this surprisingly light, subtly-scented miracle cream.
