There are definitely great eco-friendly, organic beauty products out there for you to use and enjoy – and I think in the future we’ll be seeing a lot more beauty companies going green as well.
One of my personal faves is Josie Maran Cosmetics. Her line of makeup is very eco-friendly and the products deliver beautifully as true makeup should. Aside from being good for our environment, Josie’s makeup has tons of benefits for your skin. Most of her products are made with Argan Oil which, thanks to Josie, is becoming very popular for its healing abilities.
As a makeup artist working on sets and photo shoots, I tend to use product that has great pigment and textures over products that are eco-friendly or organic. But Josie’s line totally delivers. Of course, I have to mention the Bear Naked Wipes that I can’t live without. They are, hands down, the best makeup wipes ever! Other great natural brands I like are Tarte, Korres and Bare Escentuals.
Congrats to MaryBeth and Selina314, winners of the ecoTools EcoPouf Giveaway.
They will receive the world’s first 100% recycled plastic bath sponge! The EcoPouf sets the standard for bathing, showing beauty buffs everywhere that getting squeaky clean and supporting sustainability can go hand-in-hand.
ecoTools products are sold at Target stores.
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month and I know four Spoiled Pretty readers who are ready to have some (safe) fun in the sun. I’m talking about fireball1212, Minchi, ruthing73, Sarah D. – because they’ve just won Lavanila’s new Healthy Sunscreen SPF 40 For Face!
Traditional sunscreens use harsh chemicals like PABA, oxybenzone, parabens, nanoparticles, synthetic fragrance and phthalates, which can accumulate in the bloodstream and cause irritation or allergic reactions. Lavanila’s Healthy Sunscreen is 100% natural, completely free of chemicals and infused with a superior complex of skin-saving vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Plus, it’s perfect for sensitive skin, this fragrance-free, ultra-sheer formula glides on smoothly with no white residue for the ultimate in natural SPF protection.
Merci to Lavanila for sponsoring this green giveaway.
