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, clarksbotanicals.com.

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.

Cargo launches new product that plumps cheeks!

A cheek plumper? Do women really want that? I can appreciate it sculpting my cheeks, and giving it a rosy glow – but I’m not sure I want my face to look plumper! (I have no problem in the plump-cheeks department!) What do you think about a cheek-plumper? Does that sound appealing to you?

Behold the future of blush! CheekActivator™’s revolutionary formula visibly plumps, lifts and sculpts cheeks while providing a rosy glow. The clinically proven formula contains CARGO’s exclusive, state-of-the-art DermDefine Complex to visibly plump up, lift and tighten the skin from within. At the same time, a unique color-release technology allows you to customize the blush’s intensity. The more you rub, the more intense the color becomes.

Features:

  • The exclusive DermDefine Complex works to visibly tighten and lift the skin from within, resulting in cheeks that are plumped up, dewy and youthful
  • Unique color-activation mechanism allows you to adjust color intensity
  • Universally flattering
  • Oil-free formula

Shades:

  • Rose Flush – Nude dusty rose
  • Coral Flush – Hot matte coral

Ingredients:

  • Plumping: Deep Tissue Hydration technology traps water molecules creating a visibly plumping effect
  • Lifting: Botanical extracts protect against collagen degradation and stimulate Glyco Amino Glycans, which are integral to firmer, denser skin
  • Sculpting: Peptides stimulate intra-cellular communication, visibly reducing wrinkle depth for smoother looking skin
  • An anti-oxidant blend of Tea Extract and Vitamins A, C and E helps boost collagen production to fight the signs of aging

Price: $32 US/CDN

Availability: CheekActivator™ will be available April 2010 at Murale, Sears Toronto Eaton Centre, select Independent Beauty Boutiques and will also be available at Boots and Sephora Europe.
