Happy Earth Day!

22 Apr

Happy birthday mother earth! Earth Day is intended to create awareness and gratitude of the environment and in honor of this day we wanted to celebrate some fabulous beauty products that not only leave us smelling like roses and glowing, but are created with the environment in mind.

Fragrance

LIV GRN Eau De Parfum Earth is a bright and clean fragrance with an opening note reminiscent of cucumber and melon, thanks to the green leaves in the top note. This vibrant scent is very versatile and could easily be worn to the office or for afternoon outing.

The company says, “Just wearing LIV GRN strengthens the cause by spreading the message. Beyond this, 10% of every sale is donated to Global Green, one of the world’s largest and most recognized charities.”

Nuts and Cream Perfume-Mimosa Bouquet

Warm top notes of orange blossom mix with base notes of vanilla to create a soft and subtle fragrance. This solid fragrance’s unique scent fits well with its company title, Nuts and Cream, as the container looks like the top of an acorn and the fragrance has a creamy light texture.

The company says, “We work exclusively with internationally renowned perfumers and local artisan of Grasse to develop premium nature identical oil blends, Ecocert certified organic essentials, absolutes and pure plant and fruit extracts. Our perfumes are phthalate free and contain no sulfates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, triclosan, GMO, PPG, MES, DES, TEA or formaldehyde donors.”

Makeup

Physicians Formula is a makeup brand created to cater to those with sensitive skin, and recently created an eco-friendly line, Organic Wear. Already a well seasoned brand, we’re devoted to their Concealer twins 2-in-1 Correct & Cover Cream concealer.  The yellow side hides your dark circles and the green color corrects red blemishes and scars.

The company says, “Only from Physicians Formula can you find the latest innovative products made especially for sensitive skin. All our products are Hypoallergenic, Fragrance-free, Dermatologist approved and safe for sensitive skin. Our line Organic Wear is the first line of makeup in the US that has been certified Organic by ECOCERT, an organic certification organization.”

Skincare

The Juice Beauty Green Apple Peel arrived in my April Birchbox. Having heard of the Juice Beauty brand, I was excited to try out their product. The mask is marketed to deliver spa-grade exfoliation and a brighter firmer complexion. Having sensitive skin, I concentrated the mask on my T-zone. After washing it off, I did notice some of the redness they mention as a side effect, but my skin was also incredibly soft and smooth.  The mask definitely delivered its promise and I will be integrating this into my beauty routine.

The company says, “At Juice Beauty our mission is to bring skincare with the highest percentage of certified organic ingredients to customers worldwide. To that end, we have come up with a unique formulation method, our certified organic juice base. We have just been awarded our first patent on our formulation methods for our bestselling Green Apple Peel.”
