New Jersey’s women love beauty products, and now they have an excuse to try some new ones: Earth Day. This year, women everywhere can celebrate the earth by trying some eco-friendly beauty products and accessories. A beautiful earth plus a beautiful woman. What could be more perfect?
Fantastic green beauty products and accessories to try this spring:
- Facial and body cleansers. Kiss My Face, a company that came to life on an organic farm in New York’s Hudson River Valley, produces an array of fantastic, all natural beauty products. Try their extensive line of skin care products, including their exfoliating face wash and award winning olive oil soap. Battling acne? Try their breakout gel, which combats breakouts with tea tree oil.
- Make-up brushes. This spring, Sonia Kashuk is bringing environmentally aware luxury to the masses at Target. Try her 3 piece Bamboo Brush Set, which has bamboo handles and a mixture of natural and synthetic hair. Ulta also offers an eco-friendly brush set, featuring bamboo handles, synthetic bristles, and recycled aluminum ferules. The five piece set is sold in a case made of recycled materials.
- Nail polish. Awarded as the longest wearing natural nail polish by Women’s Health Magazine, Zoya nail polish is non-toxic, free of dibutyl phthalate (DBP), formaldehyde, camphor and toluene. It is also vegan friendly. Zoya has a fantastic collection of current colors. Buy some to treat yourself to a pedicure this spring. Either do it yourself or take it with you the next time you go to the salon.
- Tube wringer. Like every other Jersey girl, you probably have an array of tubes in your bathroom, filled with everything from toothpaste to expensive wrinkle creams. Give a nod to both your wallet and Mother Earth. Try Dr. Hauschka’s tube wringer, which squeezes tubes flat, ensuring you get every last drop of product from each and every one of them.
Note: All of the above products can be purchased on-line. Sonia Kashuk beauty products are sold at any of New Jersey’s Target locations. Kiss My Face beauty products are sold at many of New Jersey’s Whole Foods locations.
