Being that Earth Day is just a few weeks away (Tuesday, April 22nd to be exact), I thought it only fitting that I bring you the very best in organic beauty. From lipstick tubes made entirely out of corn (who knew?), to fizzy bath bombs infused with pine to nearly recycled emerald-hued nail polish (I kid you not!), these eco-friendly finds will prettify you from top-to-toe while preserving the planet.
Cargo’s colorful line of botanical lipsticks will beautify your pout and the environment! Each tube is made entirely out of corn and the outer carton is made of flower paper embedded with real flower seeds. Simply moisten, plant, and wait for a bouquet of wild flowers to bloom! Choose from 20 shea butter-infused shades for ultra smooth (and sexy!) smackers. Cargo PlantLove™ Botanical Lipstick, $20, available at sephora.com
The crème de la crème in au natural skincare, Care’s ultra-rich facial moisturizer is packed with five mega-potent organic extracts that firm and hydrate. Completely free of harmful petrochemicals and silicones, this miracle in a bottle promises radiant-looking skin just like that of its creator, Stella McCartney. Care 5 Benefits Moisturising Cream, $76, available at sephora.com
You don’t have to be the outdoor type to appreciate the benefits of this pine-infused bath bomb. When submerged under water, the Geo Phyzz slowly releases red Hawaiian and coarse sea salts, which soothe and soften even the scaliest skin. And don’t worry, you won’t end up smelling like one of those tacky pine air fresheners. Lush Geo Phyzz Bath Bomb, $7.15, available at lush.com
Go green with a punchy nail polish! Although not technically organic, Recycle’s ultra dark emerald hue is so much fun to flaunt. Besides, you can at least recycle the bottle! Just don’t forget to nix the bling when wearing polish this bright, as your nails become the accessory. Recycle Nail Polish, $18, available at resuebeauty.com
Dust your face, décolletage and shoulders with this decadent, all-over shimmer powder. The hidden value: it’s packed with real jade particles and pure bareMinerals for a hint of good fortunate and a healthy, glowing finish. Although it appears green, the flaxen shimmer shade has a delicate pink undertone that flatters every skin tone. Genuine Jade Beauty Duo, $39, available at sephora.com
Who ever said it’s not easy being green?
