  • What are Your Favorite Eco-Chic Beauty Products?

  • If you are down for treading more lightly on this fine planet of ours, welcome to the club. With a plethora of organic and eco-friendly natural beauty products, it's easier than ever to do just that.

  • We love the month of April -- when Mother Nature gives us a nice little kick in the butt. Earth Day on the 22nd reminds us that the planet and its bountiful beauty is finite. We are reminded to reduce waste, turn off the lights, conserve water, and for us beauty-product obsessed types, to support brands that are making an effort to think about the planet and our health by using sustainable farming, fair trade, and no genetically modified ingredients, chemicals or preservatives.

  • So with that being said, let's empower action through what we consume, shall we? Please share what your favorite Earth-friendly products are below and check out these green products I'm digging:

  • Amala Purifying Clay Mask, $58

  • #

  • Get fresh, radiant skin with this mask, which contains whole botanical ingredients that are all certified by NaTrue, the European authority for natural and organic cosmetic standards. The included blue lotus and green and white clay nurtures the skin with vitamins, minerals and amino acids and helps remove dead skin cells and impurities.

  • Scotch Naturals WaterColors Nail Polish, $14.95

  • #

  • Style doesn’t have to be sacrificed when you go green. You can find evidence for that with these water-based, non-toxic polishes free of the harsh chemicals found in most solvent-based polishes. There are 17 on-trend colors which are designed to nourish and strengthen nails with repeated use. And because they won’t yellow your nails, there is no base coat necessary. Score.

  • Barbar Ceramic ECO 8000 Blow Dryer, $99

  • #

  • Hey, did you know blow dryers give off radiation which is aimed straight at your head all the time? Yup, it's true. But this earth-and health-friendly alternative and its ceramic coil heating element use half the energy of traditional blow dryers and emits significantly less electromagnetic radiation. Bonus: it actually dries your hair faster and produces negative ions that leave your hair looking glossy.

  • Odacite Deep Hydration Masque, $50

  • #

  • Organic olive and Jojoba oils add the moisture and elasticity your skin is deprived of thanks to environmental damage. And potent antioxidants (vitamins E and organic tea extract) help fight off nasty free radicals.

    • Yikes - who knew our blow dryers give off radiation!!! Most of these strike me as significantly overpriced. Eco Tools bamboo brushes are a great value and excellent quality.

    • I love the packaging on those water-based nail polishes! They look so classy. :) I tried another brand of water based polish before, and it didn't work at all for me though. I love EcoTools makeup brushes! Super eco friendly, and very, very affordable.

    • great article! I had no idea that hairdryers emit radiation, that's def something I'm gonna research more about. Also these companies are new to me, so thanks for discussing them in your post! I especially love than these items are eco-friendly!

    • I also love Burts Bees. And they are priced fairly. Also Alba, Avalon Organics and Natures Gate. All wonderful products and also not tested on animals.

    • Burts Bee's is definitely one of my favorite products, but overall my favorite thing is pure olive oil. I use it on my body, face and hair. It works as a makeup remover, moisturizer, deep conditioner (when left in over night and washed out the next day) or even shine serum (rub a tiny drop between palms to warm and spread on ends of hair as usual). I love it!
