I’ve been on the hunt for a moisturizing crème foundation, so when I found Natural Joy Beauty, I was thrilled. Natural Joy Beauty is an amazing online retailed of all things green, and the owner, Joy, curates only the best in non-toxic and eco-friendly products. She reached out to me, and when I saw that she carries Lauren Brooke’s Crème Foundation, it felt like a match made in heaven! I was able to try this amazing product thanks to Natural Joy Beauty and was not disappointed. Joy has great taste and an amazing knack for finding and providing the best of the best in green beauty.
A little about Natural Joy Beauty from the website: “Natural Joy Beauty is a mom owned small business that opened online on Earth Day April 2008. Natural Joy Beauty began from my desire to create a store where customers could feel confident about the ingredients in all of the products available. I had quickly learned during my own search to find natural alternatives for my makeup and body care, just how much “green washing” there is with products being marketed as natural and organic that really aren’t…even those sold in health food stores! Many still contain questionable ingredients. At Natural Joy Beauty, we research the ingredients for you, list all ingredients under each product and carefully choose products NOT tested on animals, that DO NOT contain any of the following:
- NO Phenoxyethanol (a.k.a. Optiphen)
- NO Parabens, Germall or Germaben
- NO Japanese Honeysuckle (preservative form)
- NO Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate
- NO Methylisothiazolinone
- NO FD&C Colorants or Synthetic Fragrance
- NO Toluene, Formaldehyde or Phthalates
- NO Propylene Glycol, Dimethicone or Diazolidinyl Urea
- NO Talc, Bismuth Oxychloride or Nano-Particles

The amazing crème foundation by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques has truly been the type of product I have been looking for. Having dry skin can be very frustrating and finding the perfect crème foundation that does not stick to dry patches can be even more difficult. Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques crème foundation may be the answer to my prayers.
Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques Crème Foundation is described as: “Lightweight, all-natural foundation that glides easily onto your skin yet has incredible coverage and staying power. This creamy formula blends beautifully to create a perfectly smooth and flawless-looking complexion. Combined with the powerful UVA Sun protection properties of Zinc Oxide, plus Certified Organic Argan Oil and Extracts of Green Tea, Passionflower, and Raspberry.” The description is dead on, the foundation was lightweight and applied easily. The foundation is housed in a glass pot which looks very classy. The texture is a whipped mousse that literally feels like air. My face did not feel heavy with product and that was a big plus!
The coverage is medium to full and is highly buildable. The foundation did not cake up nor stick to my dry patches or fine lines. With its creamy, glide-on texture, I found this foundation applied best with my fingers. The foundation comes in a range of colors from Cool, Neutral, and Warm. My foundation color is in Neutral 2, which matches me perfectly. Natural Joy Beauty offers sample sizes that make finding your shade easy.
Ingredients: Triglycerides, Zinc Oxide, Organic Beeswax, Organic Jojoba, Silica, Radish Root, Organic Argan, Organic Rosehip, Neem, Clay, Organic Green Tea, Organic Passionflower, Organic Raspberry, Natural Vitamin E (+/-, Iron Oxides, Mica, Org Essential Oil Blend).

Final Thoughts: Overall, I have to say that this foundation is amazing, it caters to my dry skin and adds moisture without sticking to dry patches. I am very impressed by this foundation and I would definitely recommend you give it a try, whatever your skin type. The only issue I have with the foundation is the smell, it has an herbal type smell that quickly fades. I can look past the smell, especially because it doesn’t last. I love how this product makes my skin look and feel.
