When it comes to natural beauty products I believe the more exposure they receive, the better! I love it whenever someone learns about the amazing benefits of getting rid of toxins, and there's no denying that celebrity endorsements have a huge impact on a consumer's decision making process when purchasing a product. That's why I get so excited whenever a high profile celebrity raves about natural or organic skincare and beauty products of their own accord, instead of the usual paid endorsement of mainstream toxic brands. I know that Nourished Life customers are not driven by celebrity trends, but I think these honest, genuine reviews are really helpful, and it's just nice to know that celebrities love using natural products too.
Coffee Bean Eye Cream
The 100% Pure Coffee Bean Eye Cream is an absolute favourite for a lot of people (as you will be able to see from all of the reviews), but celebrities love it too! Actress Kate Hudson has often raved about her love for this eye cream. With its de-puffing, brightening and soothing benefits, it's no wonder why. In an interview Kate said "I try to stick with natural products. I like 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream to calm puffiness."2 To apply, dab under eyes morning and night. For more information about this eye cream, I have written a whole blog post about it All About the 100% Pure Cofeee Bean Eye Cream, complete with clinical trials.
Nourishing Body Cream
Musician Alanis Morissette's pick is the 100% Pure Nourishing Body Creams because they give the skin an intense boost of moisture, smell amazing and leave skin smooth, softened and nourished. Whether you prefer a tropical coconut, warm vanilla or citrusy scent, there's something to suit your preferences. Alanis says she has been using the French Lavender Nourishing Body Cream for years and absolutely loves its natural, pure lavender scent.
100% Pure Black Tea Mascara
The 100% Pure Black Tea Mascara is also a Hollywood favourite for red carpet makeup. Used by celebrity makeup artists such as Azra Red, Katie Mellinger and Katey Denno on celebrity clients including Emma Watson and Felicity Jones, this mascara provides the finishing touch to long lasting red carpet makeup looks thanks to its smudge-proof, lengthening and flake-resistant formula. These makeup artists have even said that it performs even better than some mainstream mascaras!

This is a multipurpose cream that can be used to treat a huge variety of skin conditions such as breakouts, minor burns, scars and mild forms of eczema.

Actress Brooke Shields loves using this all purpose salve, saying, "You can put it on cuts, you can put it on your hair, you can put it on your eyes."4 In Lauren Conrad's household, she has to hide her Egyptian Magic! In an interview she said, "There aren't any beauty things I wouldn't do in front of my fiance. He now even steals my my Egyptian Magic all purpose skin cream!"4 What keeps Kate Hudson's skin so youthful and glowing? Egyptian Magic! Kate raved about the product saying, "I slather Egyptian Magic all over my face on overnight flights to keep my skin hydrated."4
To keep her sensitive skin moisturised, actress Natalie Portman reaches for Pai Skincare. The Pai Calming range. In an interview she said, "This organic British brand makes great moisturisers.
