These Eco-Friendly Brushes Are Wallet Friendly Too!


You know I tell it like it is. I’ll let you know when it’s worthwhile to blow your dough. But I’ll also tell you when I find an amazing bargain buy – like ecoTOOLS cosmetic brushes.

These brushes feature bamboo handles (bamboo has a low impact on the earth’s resources), synthetic bristles, and metallic ferrule made from recycled aluminum cans. The cosmetic brushes are housed in reusable/biodegradable pouches, printed with plant-based ink, and each item has a “green” tip on the back of the package…so everyone who purchases a piece of the collection discovers another small step that can create a greener lifestyle. Plus 1% of all annual sales provides financial support to environmental initiatives.

The standouts of the collection are the larger brushes. I’ve been using the Powder Brush almost every day since I got it. It’s unbelievably soft, applies my powder like a dream, and it’s only $7.99!

Individual ecoTOOLs brushes cost between $2.99 and $7.99. But for just $10.99, you can own the 5 Piece Brush Set – housed in a 100% linen and hemp cosmetic case.

ecoTOOLs products (they also offer bath and body items) are available at Walgreens, Kmart, and Ulta.

Rack Em


I wish that my bathroom looked like this.


Unfortunately, it more closely resembles this.

So when it comes to storing my beauty essentials, I need to think creatively. One of my new favorite finds is this chrome magazine rack. It’s simple to install – just lift the toilet tank lid, place the metal hanger over the side, and replace the lid.

It easily holds reading material. But my inspired idea is to use it to store my thermal hair tools. This magazine rack keeps your favorite curling irons and flat irons up and out of the way, but easily accessible.

This one from Sears will only set you back $13.
