I think it's helpful when you're first starting out on your green journey to know what products other people have chosen to use. So even though I don't feel like I'm the best example to follow, here are the products I've been using, and I hope you'll add in the comments what non-toxic or less toxic personal care and beauty products you're using.
Shampoo: Lush Karma Komba shampoo bar
Conditioner: Lush Jungle conditioner bar
Soap: Sappo Hill or Dr. Bronners
Toothpaste: Tom's of Maine Clean and Gentle Care SLS-Free toothpaste
Toothbrush: Preserve recyclable toothbrush
Facial soap: coconut oil
Facial toner: diluted apple cider vinegar
Facial lotion: basic glycerin formula with grapeseed oil
Hand and body lotion: basic glycerin formula with avocado oil
Makeup: I've been using Physician's Formula Organic Wear makeup since last fall. I'm not super happy with it.
Razor: I use a Venus razor and dry my blades between uses, enabling me to change the blade about once every six months. For shaving cream, I use soap.
Feminine products: Keeper menstrual cup
