Earth Day Beauty Deals – 2013

earth-day-2013For me, Earth Day partly serves as an annual reminder to live a more organic lifestyle and take better care of my body–namely, by cutting out products with toxic or harmful ingredients. With the way organic personal care has evolved in recent years, there really is no reason to use products that could cause nasty side effects. That being siad, here is a round-up of Earth Day beauty products, as well as a {long} list of organic cosmetics, haircare, skincare, and body care brands, some of which are offering limited-time Earth Day specials and sales.

Going hand-in-hand with living a more organic lifestyle, I’ve created a list of natural cosmetic companies, some of which are offering limited-time specials for Earth Day. These non-toxic products have come a long way from their hippie roots, and now perform just as well as other products containing known toxins. Please excuse the long list; I like to give options!
