Earth-Friendly Beauty Favorites

April 22, 2011 | By | Comments (0)

In celebration of Earth Day, I decided to wrangle together some of my favorite eco-friendly beauty brands. From head to toe, these 6 brands keep us beautiful without doing harm to our home.



Keep your locks, shiny and healthy with Yes to Carrots Daily Pampering Hair Care Regimen. All their products are a combination of organic fruits,vegetables and minerals found from the Dead Sea. In celebration of Earth Day, Yes to is offering a 25% discount off all purchases until Sunday, April 24th. Enter the code EARTH when checking out. Try their shampoo and conditioner—it's light weight and will leave your hair detangled and ready for styling.



 To buy: $16,


Pucker up with Clark's Botanicals Lip Treatment Tints. These little tubes will make your lips super soft, while still giving you a subtle tint. This company has bloomed (pun intended) by focusing on all organic flower extracts-based products. These oils (the calendula flower is the main ingredients in the balms) are anti-inflammatory and immuno-stimulating. Look kissably cute and be good to yourself at the same time!


To buy: $19,


Bat those lashes with Origins Beyond the Fringe mascara set. This duo may look minimal, but they have a powerful swoosh. Made from natural and certified organic ingredients, these two steps will give volume, length and curl without any of the harsh chemicals. Their Earth Day Special is a free limited edition cleanser with any $30 purchase (click here for more details).


To buy: $21,


Stay perfectly polished with RGB's nail lacquers. This relatively new company has over 26 shades that are formaldehyde, DBP, and resin-free. They stay on amazingly well, without any of the toxic scents or formulas. For spring they launched three new colors, this bright coral is my favorite one. It would be so cute on a pedicure or square shaped short nails. Dig out your flip flips!


To buy: $14,


Wash up and donate to charity when you purchase Elemis' Wild Lavender Hand and Body Wash. The earth-conscious skincare and spa brand will donate $15 to Charity:Water per each sale of the product. The calming lavender is soothing and the scent will immediately relax you after a long day at work.



 To buy: $30,


Sanitize without the alcohol scent with Hugo Naturals' French Lavender Hand Sanitizer. This combination of organic alcohol, aloe vera and lavender come together to no only keep you germ-free, while still being gentle on your hands.

2 oz Hand Sanitizer French Lavender
