Health Mag's 16 Best Beauty Buys and Top 7 Products for the Home

1,100 beauty, food, and home products were recently put to the test by Health Magazine to determine which are the “healthiest.”  Their list of the top 78 buys “that not only work, but are good for you too,” is surprisingly not as organic/crunchy/granola as you might think, though they do give nods to companies like Burt’s Bees and Seventh Generation.

Check out their beauty and home product recommendations after the jump!  I didn’t include their food recommendations, but you can read about them in the June issue of Health, on newsstands tomorrow.  Considering most of their picks were processed foods, I can’t be sure how truly healthy any of them are.  For example, Special K Blueberry Fruit Crisps are basically a diet Pop Tart, icing and all.  How we will ever win the war on obesity if a magazine that contends it’s about health is promoting processed diet foods over apples and oranges?
