OnlyNaturals Review: ecofriendly cosmetics and toiletries

I recently discovered a lovely company called OnlyNaturals, a family run British company based in Berkshire. They only sell natural and organic skincare and cosmetics containing no harmful chemicals. This is the direction I am trying to move towards with the products we use here at Shoestring Cottage.

CBD balm

Regular readers will know that I have been struggling for months with pain from a trapped nerve in my neck. I have tried all sorts to get relief, from massage and acupuncture to an array of drugs from my doctor.  Next stop is an MRI scan to see if I have damaged discs. I am not used to spending so much time with medical professionals – I am usually so healthy! However, this has proved a tough issue to relieve.

onlynaturalsI have been using CBD oil orally, but had heard that CBD ointment applied to the skin can be helpful for pain. With a bit of research, I found that  OnlyNaturals sell it!  I am trying a small pot first, so have ordered the 10g balm for £13.99. They also do CBD oil in capsule form, which might be worth exploring as it tastes vile!

Fewer nasties

Looking at the OnlyNaturals website, there are so many beautiful cruelty free products with fewer artificial ingredients. all of their products need to fit the following criteria:

  1. No Parabens
  2. No SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulphate)
  3. No Phthalates
  4. No artificial Colours
  5. No artificial Fragrances
  6. No Mineral or Petroleum Based Oils
  7. No contaminated Talc or Lanolin
  8. No animal ingredients (other than milk based ingredients and beeswax)
  9. No animal testing

only naturalsBecause they use only the best, natural ingredients, their products aren’t cheap. However, if you want to do natural beauty on a budget, you can do some savvy shopping with their offers. This Sukin Love Your Skin set is on offer at £15.99, down from £23.99. It consists of a foaming facial cleanser, hydrating mist toner and moisturiser. Pretty good value for three products I think.

onlynaturalsThey have some great value items in their sale too, so it’s worth a look. I wear lipstick a lot and really love their Lily Lolo natural lipsticks at £9.50 each, which I think is pretty reasonable. This one, Demure,  is in the sale for £6.50 and is just my colour!

Sound environmental policy

I like the OnlyNaturals policy on the environment as well. They choose products made by companies who are environmentally responsible and their packaging is either recycled or comes from sustainable sources. They ship products in cardboard and recyclable jiffy bags and use packing material inside the boxes that is fully biodegradable and dissolves in water.

Check them out and tell me what you think! You get a 10% discount on your first order.

  1. Hi Jane, I’ve beenever trying to switch to natural products for some time now. Holland and Barrett do a range of beauty and skincare but it does seem expensive on some products so I’ve not purchased front there. Sukin products can be found in Homesense (the home version of TKMaxx) or TKMAXX itself as I know there aren’t a lot of Homesense stores around the UK. They are really reasonably priced too. I got a huge shampoo and conditioner for £4.99 or £5.99 each. I also got Faith in Nature chocolate body wash whichever was £2.99 as opposed to the £5.49 it would cost in H&B…….It does make me smile in the shower as I want to eat the loofah, the smell of chocolate is so strong If you’very not tried TKMAXX for natural products before, I can thoroughly recommend. Other companies are available but it can be hit and miss as to what is available

    • Agree that TK Maxx is great for this stuff but it’s not always there. I got a natural hessian soap bag and lovely natural soap before Christmas. It’s great for giving yourself a good scrub and gets rid of the need for shower gel in plastic bottles

  2. Hi, there is also a company in Penzance called Pure Nuff Stuff, try there web site, I find the really good and very reasonable

  3. I walked into my local health shop this afternoon to discover that they were having a closing down sale. And walked out with a half priced mineral powder and brush, plus free testers of bb cream and bronzer. So lucky. In New Zealand, the eco movement has been very strong for a long time. And so we have some wonderful ranges of eco friendly products, makeup and skin care. I use olive oil with some ylangylang essential oil which I have, for my body.
