In honor of Earth Day tomorrow, I thought I would mention a couple of my favorite products that were either cruelty free or non-toxic. And no your eyes have not deceived you that is in fact a lemon in the background!
I love my EcoTools brushes – they are so soft, cruelty free and made from recycled aluminum and bamboo. EcoTools brushes are loved by beauty editors and plenty of celebrities and the fact that they’re inexpensive helps too.
Moving into makeup, I love Too Faced products because they do not test on animals and are such ridiculously high quality. Their products blend like an absolute dream and are ones that I pull from my makeup bag on a daily basis. Plus, the Chocolate Soleil Bronzer and Chocolate Bar Palette smell like a fancy dessert without the calories so what is there not to love?
Grease Lightning from LUSH is a GODSEND. It is great for my sensitive skin and zaps pimples right away with its mixture of tea tree oil, rosemary and aloe vera. And just as a heads up it is so helpful in curing razor burn! All of the products I have tried from LUSH are great and not just because they do not test on animals and use completely fresh ingredients.
And the star of the show is one of my ~newest~ obsessions; daniPro!
daniPro is a completely non-toxic nail polish that was produced by podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. Made with Undecylenic Acid and without other damaging chemicals it is a great buy. While most nail polishes typically have a strong smell I was taken aback when I found that daniPro’s scent is not overpowering at all.
daniPro is a must for clumsy girls who always seem to smudge their nails while they wait for them to dry. I personally struggle with painting my own nails, but with daniPro I had no problems at all. The formula is thin and dries quickly, which makes it easy to paint nails efficiently and without making a mess.
