Thousands of all-natural skincare products are formulated every year, but only a few are worthy to be included in your favorite list. In this post, I will be sharing a roundup of the products that really worked well for my skin. These are the products that deserve 5/5 stars for consistency, quality, and reliability. Since I have realized the benefits of using only all-natural and organic products especially for the skin, I get my skincare items from Healthy Options. Without further ado, here are my favorite and most recommended holy-grail items that I call “revolutionary” and a must-try for everyone.

My 10 Favorite Skincare Products of 2017 from Healthy Options

1. Derma E Radiant Glow Face Oil by SunKissAlba (PhP 925)

My morning and evening skincare routine won’t be complete without this Radiant Glow Face Oil by SunKissAlba. It’s a trending product on Instagram with a reason: it illuminates the skin and adds hydration instantly. Derma E collaborated with SunKissAlba to create a luxurious oil that can give you an unforgettable glow. I love using products that are eco-ethical and cruelty-free like this one because it’s guilt-free and it makes me happy!

If you like having golden bits on your face and body without looking too much of a diva, give this oil a try. It leaves the skin so supple and soft like a baby’s bum. I put 2-3 drops and apply it with my ring finger on my forehead, cheeks, nose and then do a piano tap motion and massage it gently onto the skin. It’s two skincare steps in one: while most face oils tend to moisturize and sit more on the surface of skin, this one penetrates and quenches like a serum while giving the dewy, smoothing benefits of an oil.

Luscious organic Jojoba Oil and replenishing organic Argan Oil moisturize to help combat dehydration and the appearance of wrinkles while promoting radiance. Rejuvenating organic Seabuckthorn Oil helps to smooth and add shine while mineral-rich Mica adds a natural-looking brilliance to your skin.

2. T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Astringent (PhP 365 for 16oz, PhP 285 for 8oz)

This is the only 100% natural astringent that effectively cleanses, soothes and treats everyday skin irritations, without over-drying or leaving behind irritating residue. It’s gentle enough for daily use on face and body to relieve oily, irritated, red, damaged and blemished skin.

I apply this using my bare fingers or with a cotton pad. I never sleep in makeup. After washing my face, I apply witch hazel about three days in a week, and I noticed my skin is clearer. T.N. Dickinson’s Witch Hazel Astringent is also useful in taking acne scars away and making my skin less oily on top of it. It may not work for all skin types, but it’s doing justice to my skin!

3. Avalon Organics Intense Defense with Vitamin C Oil-Free Moisturizer (PhP 599)

This is a lightweight cream that rehydrates the skin for improved texture and elasticity. It’s not only my favorite but my husband’s favorite as well! We share this item and we apply this every night. One tub goes a long way. It took us more than six months to empty it. The Avalon Organics Intense Defense with Vitamin C Oil-Free Moisturizer is the quickest fix for dry, tired skin.

My husband’s skin is more sensitive so he’s thankful he found a product that’s gentle on the skin and doesn’t contain parabens, harsh sulfates, preservatives, synthetic colors, and fragrances. Avalon Organics Intense Defense with Vitamin C Oil-Free Moisturizer nourishes with soft, non-greasy hydration while energizing skin for a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance.

4. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay (PhP 525)

This product is known as the “world’s most powerful facial.” It’s a total skin-repairing powerhouse! Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay contains 100% natural calcium bentonite clay for deep pore cleaning and it doesn’t contain additives, fragrances, and animal products. It definitely clears the skin and leaves it soft! This facial mask helps to remove dirt and impurities from the pores and it’s also kind of exfoliating. It gives noticeable improvement in skin complexion and it removes stubborn blackheads.

Directions are simple: Mix Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay with equal parts of apple cider vinegar or water. Use a glass, pottery or wooden bowl. Stir the mixture until is a smooth paste then add more clay or liquid as needed. Apply a 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick layer of clay to the face or other areas and let it dry. Drying times vary, but times suggested is 5 minutes for delicate skin and 15-20 minutes for normal skin.

You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation, deep pore cleansing! Believe me, it’s quite the experience. Remove the clay by washing with warm water. Expect a slight redness to appear after removing the clay. This is normal and will disappear in approximately 30 minutes.

5. Derma E CoQ10 Super Repair Cleanser (PhP 675)

I use two types of cleanser for my face daily. One of which is this Derma E CoQ10 Super Repair Cleanser, an antioxidant-rich, sulfate-free cleanser that lathers away dirt, oil, makeup and impurities, promoting fresh, healthy, youthful looking skin. What I love most about this product is that it’s so gentle and it’s very fragrant. This facial wash is doctor-developed with potent antioxidants CoQ10, pomegranate, green tea, and Vitamins A, C and E that defend the skin against daily stress, leaving it fresh, revitalized and youthful-looking.

6. Derma E Hydrating Scrub with Hyaluronic Acid (PhP 675)

This is the other facial cleanser I use also every day. Derma E Hydrating Scrub with Hyaluronic Acid is a creamy exfoliant that buffs away impurities and dull surface cells without over drying. It leaves the skin soft, smooth, and luminous. Hyaluronic Acid delivers intense moisture, and walnut Shell Powder provides gentle yet effective exfoliation, lifting away dullness. I love the grainy feel of it and the deep clean it gives my face. When you take skincare seriously and are always on the hunt for the next gen of game-changing skincare products, this should be in your list.

7. Lafe’s Natural Deodorant Spray (PhP 245)

Many years ago, I read an article that changed the way I view deodorants in the market. Using all-natural deodorants that don’t contain aluminum is the only way to go. The problem with antiperspirants is that they clog up your pores so the wetness doesn’t eek out. The ingredient that clogs up the pores is aluminum chloride, which has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and breast cancer. Neither of these claims has been scientifically proven, but there’s enough concern about them that some respected doctors warn us to avoid using aluminum in our beauty and skincare products.

I also choose to use ones that contain no parabens because I don’t want to put anything evil on my skin. Lafe’s natural deodorant is an effective spray formula. It’s a lavender-scented organic deodorant made with lavender essential oils to keep you calm, relaxed, and feeling fresh. The natural botanical essential oils fight odor-causing bacteria without the use of harmful chemicals.

Lafe’s Natural Deodorant Spray is made with certified organic ingredients and is aluminum free, gluten free, and propylene glycol free. It comes in several different fragrances, but I have only tried the lavender and unscented variants. Pick the one you love most.

8. Nature’s Gate Aloe Vera Body Wash (PhP 295)

This fortifying aloe vera body wash awakens the senses with a blend of Aloe, Blue Malva, and Sweet Almond Oil. It has a sweet smell that reminds me of candy or bubblegum, but it doesn’t carry long after washing. It suds up easily, doesn’t dry my skin, and it makes good foam. One bottle of Nature’s Gate Aloe Vera Body Wash goes a long way. It’s vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, and cruelty-free. I just wish it also comes in a smaller size container so we can bring it during travels.

9. Lafe’s Organic Lip Balm Unflavored (PhP 135)

I have tried and tested so many lip balms in the past, and only Lafe’s Organic Lip Balm Unflavored has worked really well on my lips. This USDA-certified organic lip balm is made with beeswax, vitamin E, and natural oils, providing moisture without the use of harmful chemicals. It doesn’t leave the lips chalky or chapped. It’s the perfect consistency! I use it every day under lipstick or alone whenever I feel like my lips need care and nourishing.

No matter how much abuse your lips has endured in your lifetime (toxic lipsticks and such), it’ll feel pretty much new again after you apply this lip balm consistently for a few days.

10. Avalon Organics – Lavender Luminosity Daily Moisturizer Unscented (PhP 475)

I’m obsessed with this moisturizer! The consistency is light but truly feels comforting on skin. I use it under my makeup and I’ve noticed that makeup looks smoother and doesn’t seem to get greasy either. It really feels liberating when you know that you’re putting only natural ingredients and not chemicals on your skin.

Avalon Organics Lavender Luminosity Daily Moisturizer is a hypo-allergenic lotion that hydrates and visibly brightens for renewed radiance. This moisturizer is infused with kombucha that helps smooth the skin’s surface to enhance radiance and antioxidant-rich grape seed polyphenols that help the skin fend off damaging free radicals and maintain a velvety softness. It also has hyaluronic acid which helps enhance the skin’s moisture retention. As a result, the skin feels softer and appears more luminous.

Wrap Up 

There’s a case to be made that using organic skin care products is better. Okay, maybe they’re not life-or-death necessary in the same sense as water, oxygen, and food are—but when it comes to fortifying one’s inner and outer glow, there’s nothing like natural skincare products to lift your mood. They can be more expensive but the price for value is considerable. Whether you’re looking for an occasional #treatyourself splurge or you’re ready to indulge in a quality skin care haul in Healthy Options, consider getting these personal favorites. 🙂

    Haven’t used witch hazel in many years forgot about it. All the other products I haven’t heard of so will have to head to the store and check them out and see which ones I want to start with.

  2. Kimba Marie Angelina Wiggins

    I used to use pure witch hazel on my face for many years to keep my skin clear, but after having weight loss surgery a year ago it burns my face. I use Apple Cider Vinegar (the raw kind) to clear up my acne/blackheads. I am moving towards products with the most natural ingredients and I’ll consider using the ones mentioned in this article.

  7. Gemille Sleweon

    I love witch hazel! As someone with oily skin it really helps remove all the excess oils. I usually use it right after I wash my face before I put on my moisturizer.

  8. Peachy

    I’ve heard a lot about Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and I’m curious. Will drop by Healthy Options and look for it.

    In India we have a host of Ayurveda beauty brands doing very well. Many of the products you have written about are using natural ingredients. Thanks for the information.

  12. Amy Dong

    I’m really liking the witch hazel idea. I don’t apply a toner or astringent after cleansing, for fear of drying out my winter skin. But this looks promising and much more gentle.

  13. Sheryl

    Yay, thank you for this list 😊😊😊 I’m really excited to try the deodorant and witch hazel . And I’ll aslo check some of the products you mentioned one by one. A lil bit pricey so hope it works for me. 😘😘😘

    Hi! Thank you so much for this! Can you please share your skincare routine using these products, especially the facial products.

    • Rochkirstin Santos-Sioco

      I use either Derma E CoQ10 Super Repair Cleanser or Derma E Purifying Detox Charcoal Facial Scrub or Derma E Hydrating Scrub with Hyaluronic Acid once in the morning after waking up then immediately proceed to shower. After showing, before putting my makeup on, I spread 2 drops of Derma E Radiant Glow Face Oil by SunKissAlba on my face.

      In the evening, when I get home from work, I use the same facial cleansers, then apply witch hazel to make sure that my face is clean and fresh. Then, my nighttime moisturizer is the Avalon Organics.

      My husband and I use Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay 1-2 times a week.


    Hi! I get some skin care products from Healthy Options as well. I will try some of the products you mentioned above. Thank you so much for this list! ^_^ I am being extra careful with the kind of products I use for my skin these days for health reasons. It is so hard to find “lotions” which are safe to use. If you don’t mind, could you recommend a nice one? I have dry skin.

    • Rochkirstin Santos-Sioco

      You’re welcome! Using all-natural products for skin care is a wise choice. For more recommendations based on your skin type, it’s best to check with your dermatologist or visit Healthy Options and ask help from the customer advisors. 🙂

    Hi im really new to all these facial cares…i have a big pores and i ve read a lot about facial serum to tighthen the pore and can remove blemishes. I would like to try one.what can you recommend?

    • Rochkirstin Santos-Sioco

      There’s plenty of all-natural products that are available to minimize pores and cleanse your skin. You may check out the Derma E and Andalou Naturals for skincare. You may also want to try witch hazel toner to gently tighten your pores as the extracts remove excess oil and lift away debris, bacteria, and other impurities.
