Get green!

Getting green has never been so easy for us beauty addicts. What once felt like an overwhelming task of label reading and online research has been made simple by several websites. You can even find out the rating on your favorite beauty products here. But my newest shopping infatuation is this:
And their mantra: "Reading labels and memorizing an ever growing list of ingredients to avoid can be overwhelming. On top of that, you may never know whether or not even "organic" products are ethically sourced or whether or not their packaging is eco-friendly. Spirit Beauty Lounge is a place where you can shop safe, knowing we've done the research for you! All of our organic and sustainable products come from companies who have clearly defined humane, ethical, and environmental policies ensuring the care of our planet and its inhabitants!"

Thank goodness for the internets. And while I'm at it, I'll share a few of my fave "green" must-haves that now line my shelves, ready for research and testing.
As if my skin weren't sensitive enough before...it's now become even more temperamental. It smells lovely and appears to have some longevity as only a few drops are needed to dull my occasional break outs and redness. This is a great way to stretch your $38!
Just because I can't see my toes doesn't mean they don't need the same TLC as before. I love this vibrant pink hue and the fact that there is no formaldehyde or toluene. Surprisingly it lasts just as long as the big brands in the biz without a watered down appearance. A new summer staple indeed.
And because "feeding" is my middle name these days...it was easy to fall in love with the sheer concept and packaging of Yarok' shine serum. A few drops rubbed into the palm of your hand before styling with heat and your hair will look, smell and feel amazing. And my most favorite fact about this brand is that 3% of their annual sales goes directly to the people of Ecuador and Peru in efforts to protect 10M acres of the Amazonian Rain forest. Very green indeed!

In my professional life, I've been fortunate enough to meet 2 of the 3 entrepreneurs behind these brands and they could not be more passionate and excited about their lines. It's really refreshing and I learned a ton!
