What's Your Desert Island Beauty Product?

What's your Survivor product? The one thing that you can't live without? The cosmetic that comes on every flight in your quart-size ziplock bag? Our healthy beauty experts give us the scoop on their desert island beauty product.

MBG: What's your desert island beauty product?

Stacy Malkan, Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and Author, Not Just a Pretty Face: Grateful Body Aphrodite's Feast skin cream.

Sophie Uliano, Author of Gorgeously Green: On a desert island, I’d find so much of what I needed from the island – mango, shea and coconut butters. I could probably grind up berries for lip color – hmmmm – it would probably have to be mascara.

Emma Grady, Fashion Contributor, TreeHugger and Founder, PastFashionFuture: Coconut oil. It can be used as lotion, lip conditioner, eye makeup remover, shaving oil, hair softener and it certainly has the natural fragrance of a desert island--depending on where the island is, of course.

Rory Freedman, Author of Skinny Bitch: Dirty Hippie Soaps’ Kissin’ Stick, Herbie flavor. It is my all-time favorite lip balm ever.

Starre Vartan, Author of The Eco-Chick Guide to Life: Definitely organic or biodynamic lavender oil; it works as a hair defrizzer, as a never-get-sick-of-it-scent, as bug repellent, and as relaxing aromatherapy.

Jean Seo, Owner of Evolue Beauty: Tata Harper's Bedtime Treatment. It's an aromatherapy treatment that stops circular thoughts which keep many people up at night. It is created by Princess Diana's aromatherapist.

Siobhan O'Connor, Co-Author, No More Dirty Looks: It would be hot there right? So maybe some pure, fragrance-free aloe gel to soothe my skin and my hair. But if I were to be there with, say, another person, and wanted to look my best: argan oil, without a doubt! I'd use it on my body, as my face lotion for hydration and because it's loaded with antiagers, and I'd also use it in my hair. It's an amazing multitasker.

Alexandra Spunt,Co-Author, No More Dirty Looks: I'm with Siobhan on this. Could I bring some makeup too though? Maybe my RMS luminizer?

Stay tuned, there's more from the group tomorrow!
