    I started looking at some natural skincare on etsy.... And didn't realize how much was out there! Is there anything anyone can recommend?

    I don't have oily skin per se, it's more a combination. I never had bad acne, but I definitely have little breakouts (when I'm stressed, eat bad stuff, shark week, etc).

    I'm mostly looking for a toner, moisturizer, and such. Any starters?

    I've ditched all of mine and gone to the the stuff at http://www.zibbet.com/MoroccanSelection They have an Etsy site too, as well as a Facebook page where you can pick up discounts.

    I've been using the ghasoul clay soap and argan oil for quite awhile now and it is fantastic. If you're having breakouts you might want to get some of the ghasoul clay.

    Another product I use is amla from www.mehandi.com It's a fantastic scrub/mask/toner, and I switch off some with the Detox bar and Carrotmilk bar from www.productbody.com

    The Sea Bar from ProductBody is so freaking amazing for showering.

    And it is so much less expensive than going the traditional cleanser/toner/moisturizer route!

    This is a local (to me) place but I'm pretty sure she ships to the US. Love her stuff.

    I use the dead sea salt bar soap, the facial cleanser and the clay facial moisturizer/primer.

    Thanks guys! I ordered the ghasoul soap and I think I'll also order the clay stuff!

    I'm excited..... My skin has been a little difficult since I got diagnosed with PCOS and have to take meds for it. Does all weird things to my body.

    I hear you on the PCOS skin, it's really bizarre. I'm looking forward to being able to afford some good, natural skincare because good lord do I ever need it!
