Natural Style Secrets With Seventh Generation

If you've been around my blog for a while, you'll know that I prefer to use natural products whenever possible.  Seventh Generation has products ranging from household cleaners to their new line of skin serums, all made with natural ingredients, to help you green up your lifestyle.  I tested their new Firming Skin-Boosting Serum.

All of the serums contain pure, active botanicals that have a variety of different effects on the skin.  Their concentrated blends are plant-based and have no added water.  They are also free of parabens, phthalates, and synthetic fragrances, and Seventh Generation is a cruelty-free brand.  The Firming serum strengthens and tones with baobab.  I'm unsure which part of the baobab tree they use, but I'm assuming they mean either the leaves or the fruit.  It also contains carrier oil (apricot, almond, and grapeseed oil), brown algae, rosemary extract, and peppermint.  I definitely noticed the peppermint right away while using this; it smelled wonderful and also made my skin feel slightly tingly.

Overall, I think that this serum probably works great for the skin concern it's targeted toward, but it wasn't the best fit for me.  If I had a choice of which type of serum to choose, I would have gone with either the Clearing or Soothing one.  I found that I had to use this serum extremely sparingly, because if I used even just a bit too much it felt like it sat on my skin as opposed to being absorbed into it.  I would definitely be interested in trying one of the boosts that was better fit for me skin, though, because I have a great overall opinion of the Seventh Generation brand.

Fall Natural Style

With fall right around the corner (my favorite season!), I would work the Seventh Generation Firming Natural Skin Serum into my natural style routine by wearing it with the outfit above.  I think a boyfriend cardigan and skinny jeans are an easy and effortless way to look chic and stay warm in the cooler weather.  The boost serums will help make your skin care routine more effortless as well, because these are concentrated enough to work as a moisturizer and they'll improve the overall appearance of your skin.
