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.


New! Dessert Essence Hand Wash


I just had the chance to sample this soap and it has worked wonders on my skin in one weekend. My hands get so dry during the winter even with constant lotion application its near impossible to keep my skin from getting red and dry. I put this new Dessert Essence soap in my bathroom for a party at my house this Saturday and have been using it since. In just the last day and a half my skin has improved remarkably. The soap comes out like a lotion but cleans really well and smells delicious. 

I really like how the pump only dispenses a little bit, you need barely a drop to get your hands clean and my kids waste so much soap this helps control how much they get out while they pump. Definitely a must have for the cold winter months, I can’t wait to try the other scents.
