Happy EARTH MONTH My Beauties! What are you doing to celebrate Earth Month? What steps are you taking towards being healthier and more green this month? In honor of this special month, I am encouraging my readers and followers to take one or two small steps to preserve our planet and be a bit more green. It doesn’t have to be anything major, maybe recycling your bottles and cans or picking up trash when you are out on walk, whatever it is just take moment to think about the environment around you. In doing my part, I wanted to share a few FABULOUS brands that I adore that make beautiful, greener, better for you (and the environment) beauty products. Hope you discover a new brand that peaks your interest and makes you feel good about trying something healthier and greener.
Kelly Teegarden is a cancer survivor who decided to create her own fabulous chemical free skincare line because she was disturbed by the fact that many of our beauty and personal care products contain cancer causing chemicals and she wanted to make a difference. Kelly formulated her healthy line so that consumers know exactly what they are using on their body. All KTO products are made with certified organic and natural ingredients, no cancer causing ingredients, are scientifically proven to have no hormone disruptors and no toxic levels of ingredients. I adore her gorgeous nourishing Lip Glosses which come in a fabulous array of colors, contain Dragon’s Blood know for it’s ancient healing properties and they have a handy light-up mirror. I also love her Rejuvenate Anti Aging Night Cream/Hydration Masque which plumps up my skin and gives it a beautiful glow before events.
One of my fav beauty bloggers Elizabeth Dehn of Beauty Bets recently collaborated on a fabulous moisturizing skincare line with Suzanne Leroux, the creator of one of my all time fav better for you beauty brands One Love Organics. These two respected beauty mavens put their gorgeous brains and skincare passions together and created the swoon-worthy Elizabeth Dehn for One Love Organics collection which combines highly-concentrated plant oils with super-effective pharmaceutical-grade vitamins and antioxidants for anti-aging benefits, maximum moisture and a major glow.
The line currently consists of two products: Vitamin C Active Moisture Serum which contains a potent mix of vitamins and antioxidants (like green tea and sea buckthorn oil) to brighten and replenish skin creating a more radiant complexion and the emollient waterless Vitamin E Active Moisture Eye Balm which contains a powerful blend of vitamins and antioxidants that restores radiance to the delicate eye area. I love the gorgeous silky serum that rejuvenates my skin and gives it a dewy glow and the eye balm is so different than other products cause it’s really concentrated and gives my dry eye area a fab dose of hydration.
Kahina Giving Beauty products are sensitively produced from start to finish with an eye toward cultural and environmental sustainability and centered around the idea of bringing beauty to women of all cultures. All the Kahina products contain ethically and sustainably sourced raw materials, are made with certified natural and organic formulations that incorporate organic materials whenever possible and highlight a region’s specific ingredients and gives back to the indigenous women who harvest and produce the ingredients in the products. I LOVE the Serum which contains fabulous oils like argan, sea buckthorn seed, carrot seed and organic coffee oil and it totally revitalizes and heals my skin. And it has a yummy lavender neroli scent too.
The Honest Company was created by parents (like Jessica Alba) to offer safe, affordable, eco-friendly products for families, babies and your home. The brand embraces savvy style and fun, sustainability, social goodness, and convenience. You can buy individual products online or sign up for the budget friendly super convenient subscription service that delivers the family necessities to your door every month. I am obsessed with the Honest Healing Balm which is made with fabulous nourishing organic essential oils like Sunflower, Tamanu, Chickweed, Olive Oil and healing Castor Oil. I use it for my dry patches, cuticles and lips = LOVE!
