We’ve all been there, perusing Amazon before going to bed and finding things we never knew existed. The behemoth marketplace surprisingly has a plethora of all-natural products, some familiar powerhouses as well as several indie brands. There are a few things to keep in mind to make Amazon the best online green shopping experience, ever.
1. Search using phrases that pinpoint a specific product such as “all natural moisturizer” or “organic sunscreen” or “all natural eyelash growth serum”. Being too general will bring up a million results that may overwhelm you.
2. Read the reviews, a few 5-star, 3-star, and 1-star to determine if the reviews are legitimate and if the complaints are valid. Ask the seller questions using their Q&A section, consult with other friends who are up late at night on the Amazon app, and know that items “fulfilled by Amazon” (marked on the product listing) have a pretty great return policy if the product doesn’t work for you.
3. Don’t click “Buy Now” on the first item that shows up on your search list. Sometimes those products really are #1, but be a smart consumer and know that it may also be a result of smart marketing.
4. If you’re impatient, definitely use Amazon Prime for 2-day shipping, as a lot of natural beauty products are Prime eligible!
5 Natural Products You Never Knew Existed on Amazon.com
Graydon is an all-natural, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and gluten-free brand that includes a range of products for haircare and skincare. Using nutrient-rich formulas with botanical ingredients, Graydon’s products are gentle and effective. A favorite here at TM is the Hair Smoothie conditioner that leaves your hair feeling like soft butter.
Jarrow’s is a vegan brand of supplements ranging from multivitamins, prenatal vitamins, b12, Sam-E, to whey protein shakes. Customer ratings are consistently 4 stars or more and reviewers are overall very happy with the quality and efficacy of Jarrow’s products. We at TM have tested b12, l-theanine, and Sam-E ourselves with stellar results, including increased energy, better sleep, and improved moods.
There are so many oils and oil-producing companies to choose from. Determining that a company produces high-quality oils can be a daunting task unless you know someone who has major success with the line. We have tried Foxbrim’s rosehip seed oil, castor oil, honey face wash and makeup remover with great results. Foxbrim is all-natural, 100% organic, vegan, cruelty-free, and their oils are cold-pressed ensuring the highest quality extractions.
To have long, lush, flirty lashes are a girl’s dream. Organys Eyelash & Eyebrow Growth Serum can help you achieve that easily. It is all-natural, gluten-free, paraben-free, dairy-free, cruelty-free, and vegan product that uses bioavailable lipo-oligopeptides to help penetrate the hair follicles. These peptides help to stimulate keratin to fortify the eyelash and eyebrow, thus promoting eyelash growth and thickness.

We're suckers for a good sheet mask, but these are specifically for the under eye area. If you've had a late night or simply not enough sleep, pop this in the refrigerator for 20 minutes prior to application. It's infused with natural ingredients that helps to depuff and smooth the under eye area, and makeup also goes on easier.
