Alright, let's be honest, Earth Day isn't sexy. Don't get me wrong, I am all about going green. We removed all plastics from our house a few years ago, compost regularly, use travel mugs for morning coffee runs, and avoid styrofoam like the plague. However, I would never describe Earth Day as sexy, that is, until now.
Did you know there are countless eco-friendly beauty brands that are on a mission to deliver quality, safe, and yes, even sexy beauty products? So, this year I decided to celebrate Earth Day with a killer beauty list. Here you'll find seven of the best natural beauty products available to mankind. OK, that may have been a little dramatic, but seriously, these beauty finds are au naturale and work insanely well. Is it just me or has green never looked so good?
Bold lips for spring that are made from cruelty free and vegan friendly products? Yes, please!
S.W. Basic describes their hydrating cream this way: "when it comes to dry skin, this bad boy don't play." Read even half of the 72 reviews and you'll want to add this to your cart immediately. PS: I already have.
Coffee + natural body scrub - need I say more? Babe describes the ingredients in their coffee scrub as: "being known for helping reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, lumps and bumps, acne and scars. #BOOM!" Boom, indeed.
If you're familiar with natural deodorants you know that tea-tree oil is a common ingredient. For good reason, it's an odor killing ninja! However, Lavanila does a bang up job of using vanilla to leave you sweet smelling and confident no matter how hard you play. Did we mention this is an award-winning set? Yeah, you should probably buy it.
The name kinda says it all: this moisturizing cleanser will help you say sayonara to impurities while nourishing your skin. It's also certified organic by the USDA (which is rare in the world of cosmetics because regulations are super strict). Nourish your skin without exposing it to nasty chemicals. Win, win!
Beautiful, breathable foundation that's chemical-free, cruelty-free, and produced in a factory that runs on wind power. A green beauty product, indeed. Oh, and it has a 5 star rating from 43 reviews. What's the lesson here? It's green and it works.
This moisturizing daily cleanser contains tons of natural ingredients and is even advertised to produce even-looking skin tone in as little as 4 weeks when used along with other Burt's Bees products. Personally, I have never used a Burt's Bee product that I was not happy with. This lip gloss can always be found in my purse.
I have a secret. I couldn't restrict myself to only seven favorite natural beauty products. The truth is, eco-friendly makeup is trending and there are a ton of quality picks to choose from. Check the full list of my favorite natural beauty products, here.
