Celebrate Earth Day With The “Best Eco-Friendly Beauty Products”

You can feel great about adding these environmentally friendly products to your beauty regimen! These are our picks for the best beauty products that are good to your body and the planet.

Best Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Desert Essence Organics Green Apple & Ginger Thickening & Volumizing Shampoo, $8.99, Whole Foods Market.

Testers fell for the fresh apple scent. Their fuller, shinier hair was the clincher.

Best Mineral Makeup
L’Oreal Bare Naturale Soft-Focus Mineral Finish, $15.25, drugstores.

The translucent powder absorbs oil and minimizes lines and wrinkles, giving you a flawless finish in seconds. It’s preservative-free for sensitive types, and testers liked the built-in brush applicator.

Best Paraben-Free Body Lotion
Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion with Royal Jelly, $8.99, drugstores.

This shimmery moisturizer generated happy buzz. Royal jelly contains essential amino acids and B vitamins, and the lotion has no chemical preservatives.

Best All-Natural Body Wash
Clark’s Botanicals Skin Clearing Face & Body Wash, $46,

A blend of salicylic acid and willow-bark extract, this formula gently washes away post-workout sweat and oil and promotes cell turnover, leaving skin healthy and blemish-free. One staffer saw a difference in her skin after only one shower.

Best Organic Lip Smoother
Yes To Carrots C Me Smile Lip Butter, $3.69, Walgreens.

It has so many healthy ingredients (organic carrot extract, coconut oil, jojoba-seed oil, shea butter) there simply isn’t room in the tube for anything bad for your lips — or the planet. Oh, and it kept our pouts soft too.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.


Last Sunday we were all excited to hear we would see snow.  In Portland we maybe get a day or two of snow a year and it usually all gets rained away within 24hrs. Well we are now on are 8th day of snow and about 13 inches on the ground in the metro area. While that would be nothing to a lot of people it grinds our city to a halt. I don’t think we have all ever wished for rain like we are now.

Even some of the stores are closed don’t they know all of us procrastinators still have Christmas shopping to do? So I am getting to the point of turning our tennis rackets into snow shoes or hand making gifts. For the sake of my loved ones I think I will go with the tennis racket snow shoe idea. I still have two more stockings to buy and I was excited to see all the great gift packs Burt’s Bees is offering this year, here are a few worth a walk on tennis rackets!

For my hard to shop for oldest brother who is very into earth friendly products, this is the perfect stocking stuffer!

Julianne Moore Talks About Partnership with Burt’s Bees


Julianne Moore recently opened up to Ben Lyons with E! about what drove her to natural skincare products and partnering with Burt’s Bees, working on the feature film “Blindness” and her new children’s book.

When asked about the confusion that can arise when shopping for natural skincare products, Moore talks about how Burt’s Bees and the Natural Products Association worked together to develop “The Natural Seal:” “Burt’s Bees has worked with this group — it certifies that products are 95% natural, and they won’t cause any harm to your person. I think because the kind of toxins that we have to live with on a day to day basis, there’s no reason you need to get them in lotion.”

Moore’s children drove her to become passionate about natural products: “I have kids who have eczema for example, so I can’t put anything on them or they’ll have a reaction to it.”

When Lyons asks what it was like to work with director Fernando Meirelles on the feature film “Blindness,” Moore says: I always say that great directors have a lot, they always have a very distinct vision. So that’s what he did. He was very, very sure about what he wanted.“

In addition to acting and spreading the word about Burt’s Bees, Moore is also a children’s book author: “Yes, I have another book coming out next spring, it’s called “Freckleface and the Dodgeball Bully.” It’s about her going to school and dealing with somebody who is a bully.”
