Did you know you can help the environment and look good, too? It's a win-win!
For this week's edition of Bobbie's Buzz, Bobbie Thomas stopped by Studio 1A to highlight some fun and eco-friendly makeup, skincare and fashion products that you (and the planet) are sure to love.
Bronzers and lipsticks
Pro makeup artists love ILIA beauty products for their fashion-forward, rich pigments. The brand uses natural dyes and organic ingredients, and the bronzer even includes vitamin E and shea butter — perfect for applying on your cheekbones, the bridge of nose or even your hands.
ILIA Beauty Bronzers, $34
W3LL People Expressionist Mascara is eco-friendly and a fan-favorite — receiving tons of great reviews from customers. The product relies on a natural formula that's free from the harsh, artificial chemical and petroleum derivatives often found in other mascaras.
W3LL People Expressionist Mascara, $12.50-$23.50
Juice Beauty, an eco-friendly skincare and makeup line, is supported by none other than creative director (and star) Gwyneth Paltrow. Their products are packed with nutrients, organic ingredients and botanical juices. The company also released a special Earth Day collection, a body set rich in vitamin C and designed for all skin types.
Dr. Hauschka body oils have been a holistic brand since 1965 and are both a cult and a celebrity favorite. The oils are never tested on animals, and all of the raw materials come from controlled organic cultivation.
Dr. Hauschka Body Oils, $4.50-$29
