Like most people I find products appealing when they are described with the words: “organic”, “all natural”, “healthy” or “infused with natural essences”. However, when it comes to beauty products I have been disappointed so many times either because the ingredients don’t live up to its promise or the ingredients are indeed very natural but the product itself was not appealing or simply not performing….
I don’t just want green but green glam!
Having said that below are my current three favorite organic beauty brands (green heros) which I truly adore. These products are not only organic but do also perform. All three lines are absolutely contemporary and mirror the philosophy of the founders who wanted to create something non-toxic but with no compromises on performance or design.
RMS Beauty: The first time I heard about this brand was because of their cult product “living luminizer”. A beautiful sheer and glowing highlighter with a satin-pearl finish. The best about it that it only contains five ingredients: castor seed oil, coconut oil, beeswax, rosemary extract, and mica. For me the whole product/color range is beautiful and elegant as created by a professional makeup artist Rose-Marie Swift.
Kjaer Weis: another very luxury organic makeup brand that was created by a professional makeup artist. All products are encased in a high-end metal packaging which are designed to be refillable. The color selection is stunning and I do especially like the cheek colors/cream blushes and the lip tints from this line.
ILIA Beauty: started their business back in 2011 with a collection of 6 tinted lip conditioners ILIA Beauty is my absolute favorite organic beauty brand because of its gorgeous lip products, color selection and great performance. I truly like everything in this line. You simply need to try!
Since I have been talking about beauty brands, I thought I also put a nail polish brand into this round.
Zoya: I guess a nail polish can not be entirely natural but the nail polishes from Zoya won’t contain toxic ingredients as toluene, camphor, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and dibutyl phthalate. For me Zoya polishes definitely perform as good as other mainstream brands and the color selection is amazing.
