In all honesty, Eluxe’s beauty section rocks. We cover some areas that few others do, and our beauty articles, like Our Top Natural Shampoos, Natural Alternatives to Botox and the Best Natural Hair Dyes, are also some of our most popular. We never accept sponsored beauty posts, and even when we get free stuff, we review it honestly.
But there are plenty of other voices in the realm of organic and natural beauty, and they have a lot of interesting information to share. From teaching you about which cosmetic ingredients are the best (and worst) to introducing you to new products and makeup techniques, finding a good beauty blog could literally change your life.
Here, we’ve found 15 Organic Beauty Bloggers who have gained a cult following thanks to their vast knowledge, awesome beauty advice and gorgeous photography. When we say ‘organic’, we use that term a bit loosely – all the bloggers mention at least a little about organic beauty, but not everything they cover is necessarily organic; rather, we selected them based on their holistic, natural approach to beauty.
So why not pay them a visit, and in the comments section below, let us know if we missed anyone!

Blogger’s name: Sarita Coren
Bio: A social worker turned to holistic mum, in her 20 years of experience in the field of organic beauty, Sarita has gained a lot of experience.
