Primping Checklist: Week of April 18, 2011
Our editor-approved list of the products, tips, and trends to try this week.
Try a natural nail polish. Coachella might be over, but rocking a California-cool nail color is a "must" as temps rise. We're crushing on RGB's range of bright and neutral shades.
Cleanse your faceand your conscience. Continuing their tradition of covetable celebrity collaborations, Kiehl's has partnered up with Chloe Sevigny and Michael C. Hall to bring you custom-designed versions of their Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. Amazonian White Clay detoxifies skin, and proceeds from this limitied-edition partnership go to the Waterkeeper Alliance which protects waterways.
Shop for chemical-free sunscreen. If you have sensitive skin (or are sampling eco-friendly beauty alternatives), try a mineral sunscreen for complete UV coverage that won't irritate your mug. We like Marie Veronique Organics Moisturizing Face Screen. It's packed with good-for-you ingredients like emu oils and sea buckthorn, and is free of parabens, fillers, and fragrances.
Put your drugstore dollars to good use. Garnier has teamed up with EarthShare (a massive eco-group that is involved with over 400 environmental organizations around the country), and is encouraging shoppers to vote for the environmental cause that most deserves their $100,000 gift.. Democracy has its perks toothe first 100,000 voters will receive coupons for hair color and styling products.
