I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the greenest person in the world. I probably leave the water running a bit too long when I brush my teeth, and I know I should do more than just donate reusable goods; but the older I get the more aware I become of ingredients and how they affect not only the environment and animals but how they also affect my family and me. So in honor of Earth Day (today), I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite green beauty products!
Between subscription boxes and the fact that I’ve worked with LBC in the past, I’ve had the chance to try a good majority of the products they sale. But I’ve got to admit that it’s the blush I got in my November 2015 LaRitzy box that I love the most! Though small (aprox. 0.09 oz) this blush is very pigmented and is full of delicious ingredients like: orange peel wax, jojoba and broccoli seed. Best yet, it lasts all day!
This hair oil is designed to work as a pre-shower mask. Basically you slather it all over your hair about 30 minutes before your shower and then just let it soak in. I ususally only last about 20 before I give up but the results are just as good as the Macadamia Professionals Deep Conditioning Hair mask and the ingredients are much better for you.
P.S. you get 26 oz of product. If you have medium length hair like I do, this should last you for about 40 uses.
100% PURE Facial Cleansing Brush $9
Think of this brush as a mini, hand-powered clarisonic… When I first got this brush I wasn’t the biggest fan. The size is good for focusing on small areas of my face as I wash, but the bristles were a bit rough and it felt like I couldn’t possibly be doing anything good for my skin. But I kept using it every night for a month and in that time not only did the bristles become much more gentile but I saw a major change in the overall condition of my skin too!
100% Pure no longer sales this style on their website, but if you’re willing to spend $11 more you can get this one!
I love this powder SO much, I just wish it wasn’t so darn expensive for the amount of product that you get (0.14 oz). This powder is translucent, SO finely milled and just gives your face this beautiful, flawless, airbrushed look!
I picked this up on a whim one day really just to try something new. What I wasn’t expecting was to find something that was so easy to use that I’d actually use it twice a day (thank you spray nozel) and that could actually reduce the redness in my skin. For the price, this is one I definately don’t ever want to be without.
