Happy Earth Day! It’s a day to celebrate eco-consciousness. And do that, I’m spotlighting 5 products that I think do a great job of being planet-friendly. Read on for some of my favorite Earth Day picks…
Kiehl’s leads by example, donating $100,000 to Recycle Across America and to commemorate that effort, Kiehl’s has released The Limited Edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. This series features Earth-inspired designs by socially conscious influencers including Florence Welch, Mark Ruffalo, Rosario Dawson and Spike Lee. The Deep Pore Cleansing Masque contains Fairly Traded Amazonian White Clay and is an excellent product for clearing up skin congestion or impurities by purifying and detoxifying skin. Love it! Available in Kiehl’s stores or Kiehls.com, $23.
One of my favorite new, natural beauty lines is güd—brought to you from the maker’s of Burt’s Bees. güd is a bright, happy, wonderfully-fragranced natural personal care collection with 97% natural ingredients. The güd lineup includes hair care, body care and hand care in four unique fragrances. I like each of the güd scents, but Orange Petalooza is my go-to. You can find güd at Target.
