When it comes to eco-friendly products, I admit I’m pretty biased — as I usually hoard these babies by the buttload. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my brand-name goodies just like the next girl, but there’s something about these natural (and equally effective) products that keep me coming back for more.
That’s why, this Earth Day (April 22nd), I’m so excited to share my favorite picks that I can’t stop raving about. So, if you’re an eco-chic cutie (like me!) or looking for a new and compassionate way to celebrate the upcoming holiday, check out my Earth Day beauty essentials to totally try right now!
Made with nourishing ingredients like argan oil and coconut, this Everyday Coconut Eye Cream (available at Whole Foods locations nationwide) uses line-fighting papaya to target dark circles, under eye bags and dull skin. Great for sensitive skin types, this non-toxic formula makes a great pick-me-up after a long day at the office.
And for an equally effective clean, the Dr. Sponge Travel Size Facial Cleansing Konjac Sponge helps keep your skin bright and beautiful wherever you go, as it washes, tones and moisturizes your face in a flash. Plus, speaking of fab hydration action, the Eco Lips ONE WORLD Relieve Softening Lip Balm (available at Whole Foods locations nationwide) keeps lips soft and supple with its non-toxic formula.
For some spring-forward exfoliation, Every Day Coconut Facial Scrub (available at Whole Foods locations nationwide) restores and rejuvenates the skin, leaving it glowing and gorgeous. Use this organic sugar and pure fair trade coconut oil twice a week for best results.
For further cellular regeneration, Kat Burki Ocean Mineral Face Wash helps get your skin impurity-free with continued use. For a brand new facial cream, try the Jason Gluten Free Facial Lotion, which locks the moisture into your skin with an allergen-free formula anyone would love. Slather some of this essential product onto your face for smoother, more tighter-looking skin.
To transform your complexion even further, the Jason Gluten Free Facial Creme uses cooling aloe and cocoa butter to revitalize your skin. Alaffia Good Soap (available at Whole Foods locations nationwide) on the other hand, gives you that squeaky-clean feeling using shea butter and coconut oil.
And if you’re totally into eco-approved makeup, Urban Decay Good Karma Brushes boast both eco- and cruelty-free benefits, as its synthetic brushes are made from recycled PET bottles, while the brush handles are formulated with recycled aluminum.
