If “green is the new black”, then green should be sleek, sexy and make anyone who wears it feel fabulous. After all, just because something is good for the environment, or your health, doesn’t mean it has to lack in the glamour department, especially in the beauty department. These five gems have stolen our hearts, and if you haven’t tried them yourself, what are you waiting for?

carol's daughter gelee de soleil browning oil spf 15.jpgLooking forward to getting “your tan on” now that the weather is warming up? Don’t go anywhere without protecting your skin— the sun can do a number on it if you’re not careful. Thankfully, you can get that summer bronze glow with the help of Carol’s Daughter Gelee de Soleil Browning Oil With SPF 15. This ultra-moisturing formula is natural and free of anything that could be potentially harmful. We love the island-y coconut and pineapple fragrance— it makes us dream of vacations on some far-away beach. Exotic palm kernel oil, cocoa, shea, mango, and avocado butters drench skin with moisture and SPF 15 ensures you’re protected as you tan. $14,
iman semi-loose powder.jpgIman Second To None Semi-Loose Powder is a new product that was just introduced to our beauty arsenal recently, and we are loving it. This mineral-infused powder comes in pressed form (making it ideal for travel), but is used as a loosed powder. This is thanks to a fine shaver that breaks the powder up right in the jar. Blended with corn silk and silk powder to provide an even-toned and shine-free finish, the formula can be worn alone or used for touch-ups throughout the day. $14.99

estee lauder take it away cleanser.jpg


Wearing long-wearing makeup or waterproof mascara can be a chore to take off at the end of the day. We want to make sure to get it all off, and we certainly don’t want to wake up with raccoon eyes the next morning. Then there are occasions that we are just too tired to go through the steps to remove our makeup at all. But we know better, so we turn to Estee Lauder’s Take It Away Cleanser. This amazing water-based, creme-gel wonder removes all of our makeup— and we mean all of it— from our face. Our skin gets clean in one step, and is left feeling soft and fresh. We love it so much we find ourselves even using it to remove our regular makeup as well. Suitable for all skin types. $22,

Keeping a budget when you’re a beauty junkie is no easy feat, however, there are many fabulous products that are wallet-friendly and multi-tasking. We can’t help but love the following products for their ability to give us a double dose of beauty goodness, and with nothing over $40, these won’t put our bank accounts into the red.

Clinique Quick Blush is our favorite little on-the-go brush. What’s even better is the fact that we never have to worry about our pink cheeks fading thanks to its built-in blush shade (it’s in the cap). $21.50,




l'oreal beauty tubes mascara.jpg


L’Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara features a lash primer and mascara in one tube. We love the gorgeous lash effect this mascara gives, its staying power, and not to mention the funny way it’s removed. No cleanser necessary— just use water, and you literally pull the tubes off your lashes. $10.95,
