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.

Jonathan Adler for bareMinerals DELUXE ORIGINAL Foundation with Handi Buki Brush ($60) This cult favorite award-winning mineral foundation gets all decked out in the iconic pattern of renowned designer Jonathan Adler. I love this chic retro modern foundation set and think it is a ‘must have’ collectible for the beauty obsessed!
Lisa Hoffman Beauty Japanese Agarwood Fragrance Necklace ($65) This brilliant antiqued bronze-plated charm necklace comes with eco-friendly pure perfume fragrance beads that beautifully and subtly release perfume while you wear it. Each necklace comes with refillable fragrance beads so that you can refresh the scent in your charm. I love the Japanese Agarwood scent; it’s has a wonderful blend of refreshing bergamot, spiced ginger and warm amber, it’s woody and uplifting.
Napoleon Perdis Beauty LOVE Stamp ($22) I am totally having fun with this water-based semi-permanent black heart ink stamp from the brilliant Napoleon Perdis. You can wear it to snazz up your makeup look or wear it on your body as part of a temporary tattoo design. This adorbs stamp also comes in a Fame/Star design (which I wore recently to the Lady Gaga concert & everyone went ‘gaga’ over it!) and they are easily removed with makeup remover. It is the perfect accent to your Valentine’s Day makeup look!
