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.

When I wake up in the morning my face tends to be pretty puffy and I just found a great beauty fix that I wanted to share from Cosmopolitan.

COSMOPOLITAN SUBSCRIPTION

Q:When I wake up in the morning, my face is really puffy. What can I do?

A:Rub an eye cream with calming caffeine, like L’OrĂ©al Paris Revitalift Antiwrinkle and Firming Eye Cream, $15.99, over these puff-prone spots: under your eyes and on the sides of your nose and your jawline. Then cut up a cold cucumber, and massage a thin slice all over your face in little circles, sweeping it upward and outward. The cuke’s extract is a natural astringent that works to minimize swelling, says Palm Beach derm Kenneth Beer.

Her style is copied by women around the country – and now Cheryl Cole has landed a deal to front beauty brand L’Oreal Paris.

The X Factor judge will represent the brand in the UK – and her first campaign will be promoting a hair product called Elvive Full Restore 5, which will hit the shops next month.

Cole, 26, who won a place in Girls Aloud by appearing on Popstars: The Rivals, graced the cover of British Vogue in February.

She said: “I have always loved the brand and have always wanted to say the iconic phrase: ‘Because you’re worth it,’ so to be given that opportunity is absolutely amazing.”

L’Oreal Paris general manager Gayle Tait said: “Cheryl is a glamorous, stylish and talented young woman whose warmth and charm has captivated the nation and helped to establish her as an inspiration to women throughout the UK.”
