Finding Natural at the Drug & Grocery Store
by Beauty Editor
For those that live in large cities and are exposed to natural and organic stores as The Big Carrot in Toronto, Choices in Vancouver or Rachelle Bery in Montreal finding natural, organic beauty products will be a breeze. For those that live in smaller cities or towns finding natural or organic may prove a little harder. So we were wondering, can you find natural and organic skin care products at the drug or the grocery store?
We chose specifically to omit online beauty destinations for the simple reason that woman, like you and I want, to get our hands on products before we buy and as we are already visiting grocery and drug stores once or twice a week, for all our other household needs, it is natural and time saving to do all our shopping in the same place. So next time you are in your local grocery or drug store see if you can spot any and all of these brands:
