Earth Day! Eco-friendly Beauty Products

What are you doing to take care of mother earth? There are so many things we can do such as recycle, support eco-friendly companies and buy earth friendly products. I had a chance to test out a few eco-friendly items. Each of the companies sent me the products to test out.  I love all of them. Here are my thoughts on Pacifica’s new natural mineral make-up and skin care collection, blow pro hair products and Desert Essence products (which is offering free shipping on their web site for all orders today for Earth Day!)

Desert Essence – from their bath and body line is the wonderful smelling coconut body wash and moisturizer. For only $8.99 the body wash is so soothing and the hand and body lotion is just as decadent.  Ingredients include Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter and Organic Jojoba Oil. Of course the products are formulated without Parabens, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth, Sulfates, Phthalates and Artificial Colors and no Animal Testing. We *heart* this company!

Blow Pro – Blow Pro products are a dream come true. Back in 2005, blow® opened the world’s very first blow dry bar in Manhattan. They then created & launched blowpro® products in 2008 to give better blow dry results at home. The products are free of harsh sulfates, parabens & sodium chloride. We loved the conditioner and the straight to the point styling cream. It made morning blow outs much easier.  I have been looking for a dry shampoo that had less chemicals in it and found it in the faux dry shampoo. Ladies, you really should not be washing your hair every day and this product will hold you over until you wash your hair! The blow out spray is light and refreshing.

Pacifica’s new natural mineral make-up and skin care – The good karma skin care set is the one to get if you like to test out products and don’t want the commitment. But believe me you will want to order all of these essentials in full size!  The kit comes with face wash, day and night cream, a BB cream(hard to find in a natural, chemical free version) and their color quench lip tint (smells so good in guava berry) I loved this company from day one. I was looking for a more natural perfume for my two tween girls and bought the Island Vanilla in the roller ball. Then I went on to buy for myself the body wash, lotion, spray perfume, soap and I especially love the solid perfume for travel. I just noticed they have the reed diffuser for the home and candles which are USA made. Oh my, a must get for me!  Another one of my favorites is the Indian Coconut Nectar as it is a perfect scent for the summer! The value collection set is great and you can layer the products. All the skin care and color is formulated without phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, GMOs, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil and triclosan!

Disclosure: The above companies sent me each of the products to test out. All opinions are my own.

A better body wash and body butter @IlovePacifica

I love to use body wash and moisturizer in the same brand and have tried just about a gazillion body wash products out there. I was also looking for a more natural perfume (that actually smells good) and I found my scent in Pacifica’s Island Vanilla. I LOVE everything about this line (and no….no one is paying me to say that! lol!) I was so upset when @Sephora stopped carrying the line so I went directly to their web site and they offer free shipping on U.S. orders over $50 and you get to choose a few samples with your order and that is how I discovered the solid perfume which is perfect for travel.

Pacifica skin care is made without Animal testing, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, GMOs, mineral oil, peanut oil, and triclosan (and other ingredients you do not want!)

I feel comfortable sharing with my tween girls and I hope they make a shampoo and conditioner soon! Here are the products I purchased for myself as a belated Christmas gift.
