Many people are making the switch to natural beauty brands because they are eco-friendly and better for the environment. My carbon footprint is not perfect but I continuously strive to make changes that will help reduce waste.
Farleyco Marketing recently sent me a green beauty box that includes some fabulous brands! Many of these products are organic, sustainable, vegan, gluten-free and non-toxic.
The Bamboo Toothbrush ($5.99) from The Humble Co is one of my favorites! Did you know that 3.6 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced each year and most of them will end up in oceans or landfills.
This brush is 100% biodegradable, vegan, cruelty-free and BPA free. The handle is bamboo and the packaging can be thrown out with organic trash. Proceeds from every Humble purchase goes towards funding oral-care projects that benefit children in need. The toothbrush is available at shophali.com
and London Drugs.
7Th Heaven has created biodegradable sheet masks that are up to 99% natural, vegan and cruelty-free. The 24h Hydration Turmeric Calming Mask is formulated to brighten and fade blemishes. I also received two avocado masks - 1 clay and one sheet. Avocado oil makes my skin feel incredibly soft, supple and hydrated - it's one of my favorites. You can find 7th Heaven at London Drugs, Rexall, Pharmachoice, Jean Coutu and Uniprix.
The Foamie Shampoo and Conditioner Bars ($14.99 ea) smell amazing and cleanse from root to tip! I decided to go with the coconut formula to strengthen, soften, and enhance shine. The bars are 100% plastic-free, vegan and environmentally friendly with NO mineral oil, soap, parabens or silicone. They also come with a handy ribbon so you can hang them up to dry after each use. Foamie is available at shophail.com
I guess you can tell I really like coconut because I also chose the Inecto Marvellous Moisture Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner. The small, travel size bottles retail for $5.49 each and the organic formula is great for dry, frizzy, damaged hair. The lush ingredients deeply nourish to promote healthy growth, stronger strands and thickness. You can find Inecto at Rexall, Pharma Plus, London Drugs, Guardian IDA and Pharmasave.
I’ve never dyed my hair because it is long, strong, healthy and shiny. If I do decide to change the color I would use something safe like Splat Naturals Semi-Permanent ($24.99). They make fun shades like purple, blue, teal and pink that last up to 30 washes. The formula is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and contains no bleach, parabens, sulfates, ammonia of fragrance.

Last but not least - some goodies from Shoppers Drug Mart. Honest Beauty makes safe, organic products that won’t trigger allergies or cause breakouts. They specialize in plant-derived cruelty-free products with zero toxins.
The Vitamin C Radiance Serum ($39.99) brightens dull skin with a potent blend of light reflecting pearl, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and of course Vit C. The ingredients work together to help increase skin firmness and create a smooth, glowing, youthful complexion. You can purchase the serum online at Shoppers by clicking HERE

If you’re looking for a gentle daily moisturizer try the Texture and Smoothing Cream ($25.99) from Cocokind. This brand is also plant-powered, gluten-free, sustainable, cruelty-free and affordable!
The celery superseed complex can be used morning and night to smooth, plump, hydrate, refine, retexturize and brighten. It contains a long list of natural ingredients including: cucumber, sunflower, shea butter, squalane, ginseng, camellia oil and peppermint extract that help maintain a clear, healthy complexion.
