There are a lot of companies working to make more natural, organic and eco-friendly beauty products. Unfortunately, a lot of these products can be pricey. Thankfully, all of these eco-friendly beauty buys are $25 or less so you can afford to look good and feel good, too.
100% Pure Organic Virgin Coconut Nourishing Body Cream
Made with 100% organic vitamins and moisturizers, this luxurious body cream from 100 Percent Pure hydrates, softens and makes skin healthy and glowing. Plus, it’s all natural, gluten free and vegetarian. This cream also contains powerful anti-aging antioxidants to help you retain a youthful glow, while the combination of fruit oils, cocoa and avocado butters keeps skin supple and smooth.
Korres Lip Butter
One of my favorite lip balm splurges, Korres Lip Butter keeps lips hydrated and “kissably soft.” Formulated with a variety of natural oils, extracts, shea butter and rice wax, these potent lip balms keep lips conditioned, soft and amazingly smooth. The lip butters are available in 7 “flavors,” – mango, guava, jasmine, quince, plum, pomegranate and wild rose and impart a light hint of color to lips
Tarte MultiplEYE Natural Lash Enhancing Waterproof Mascara
While I don’t ordinarily pay big bucks for mascara, I like the concept of Tarte’s multiplEYE natural lash enhancing mascara. This mascara has been clinically proven to increase lash volume by 638% while lengthening lashes, as well, and is formulated with their proprietary HydroPlant peptide and natural botanical nutrients to nourish and stimulate lashes. Plus, it’s cruelty-free and formulated without icky, irritating chemicals.
Afterglow Organic Mineral Blush
I like the look and feel of mineral blush, but most of the brands I’ve tried contain bismuth oxychloride, which can be irritating. Afterglow’s mineral blush contains no bismuth, and is also free of parabens, nanos, gluten and talc. Plus, these mineral blushes are available in 8 skin-flattering shades, so you’re almost guaranteed to find one that suits your skin tone. The best part? They are formulated with 100% natural ingredients!
Peacekeeper Natural Nail Polish
If you’re into natural beauty from head to toe, Peacekeeper Natural Nail Polish is for you! Available in several stunning shades, this polish is dye-free, non-toxic and, with the exception of one shade, 100% vegan. Plus, the company doesn’t test on animals – ever. While their nail polish rocks, I really love how upfront and honest they are with their product ingredients. They admit they still use copolymers in their polishes (described as a “moderate” safety risk by the Environmental Working Group) and have complete product info right there for you to see. Awesome!
