Beauty Products that Give Back

To honor earth month, here are 5 fabulous beauty products that are doing their part to do good for the world. Whether cruelty free, vegan or support ethical practices, these products will help you feel good on the inside and out! Being an earth lover myself, I have personally tried each of these products and I can honestly say they’re all worth purchasing – and you’ll feel good about doing it too!

This has remained one of my favorite products from the first day I tried it! Lightweight, easily absorbed and all natural, Josie Maran’s argan oil is a luxurious way to moisturize your hair, skin and nails – and a little goes a long way! This product supports all-female co-ops in Morocco. Every ounce purchased provides these women with a steady income, in turn keeping the Moroccan forests a safe place.

The Wet Brush Earth Collection

 

The famous “Wet Brush” has gotten even better! Not only does this specially designed brush detangle your hair effortlessly, but now a portion of proceeds will go to the charity named Water, a non profit organization that provides clean water to those in need.

This is honestly one of the best face masks I have ever tried, and it smells amazing!!! It’s super moisturizing as it cleanses your skin. All LUSH products are fresh, handmade, and fight against animal testing so you can have a clean face and a clear conscience.


BareMinerals Matte Powder Foundation

 

Dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic, BareMinerals foundation has remained a staple of my makeup collection for years. This lightweight mineral makeup is buildable to full coverage, staying velvet soft the whole day through. BareMinerals does not test any of their products on animals, nor work with any manufacturers that use animal testing, to protect our furry friends!

Natural, not tested on animals, no parabens, no petrochemicals, and made with 25% post-consumer packaging, this is a product I can feel good about buying. This body lotion smells absolutely incredible with the fruity notes of pear and açaí berry. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling silky smooth and smelling so ridiculously good! I could rave about this product all day!
