MyChelle Dermaceuticals Apple Brightening Cream

One whiff of this Apple Brightening Cream will have you convinced that it is indeed from a family of natural, dermaceutical-grade and bioactive products. It almost smells kind of vinegar-y, but if you can get past the smell, the results are just wonderful. It's worth it.

It’s the newest addition to the brand’s Age Spot/UV Recovery line, and even upon first application, your skin will instantly feel more nourished and look more even. It’s also a great choice for a moisturizer to transition out of the dry winter season. With a combination of Apple Plant Stem Cells and sea daffodil extract, this cream packs a punch that helps reduce dark spots over time and promotes a natural, radiant glow.

NEW for April 2013! $35.00 at mychelle.com and Whole Foods Markets nationwide

Clairvoyant Beauty French Clay Cleanser

At first glance at the texture of this French Clay Cleanser, we thought it was a mask. And after our test, we found that it had some similarities: following use, skin immediately felt tighter and more refined - not to mention ultra clean. It’s concentrated with French Pink and Green Clays to detoxify pores and minimize their appearance.

Suitable for all skin types and a must-try!

Nourish Organic Hand Wash

Certified USDA organic, Nourish Organic’s line of products all align with the brand’s mantra “Organic Food for Healthy Skin.” We dig the Organic Hand Wash, which leaves hands feeling not only clean, but smooth (not dry) after use. Try the soothing Lavender Mint scent - our favorite!

Coming soon next month, the Organic Hand Wash will also debut its newest scent, Spiced Citrus - we can’t wait to try it.

$7.99 (7 fl. oz.) at nourishorganic.com and select Whole Foods Market locations

Dr. Hauschka Neem Nail Oil Pen

If you remember our love affair with Dr. Hauschka, you’ll recall that we carry Dr. Hauschka Hand Cream with us everywhere. Perfect for on-the-go beauty touch-ups, the Neem Nail Oil Pen is designed to be travel-friendly and offers a felt tip applicator to protect cuticles and strengthen nails. Among its formula is chamomile and neem leaf oil to boost the health of brittle nails and prevent them from chipping.

$19.95 at drhauschka.com

Vapour Siren Lipstick

Prestige beauty brand Vapour prides itself on its signature base of certified organic, light, dry plant oils that are non-comedogenic across all of its products.

Vapour Siren Lipstick contains moisturizing Jojoba Oil, Pomegranate Oil, and an infusion of rose petals in the mix of its botanical ingredients. Available in 15 shades (Possess, a dusty rose caught our eye immediately), Siren Lipstick is 100% natural and chemical free, with 70% certified organic ingredients (the remaining percentage consists of natural mineral pigments and vitamins).

Say goodbye to lipstick that leaves an aftermath of chapped lips or pesky (and chemical) residue and hello to moisturized, supple lips!

$22.00 at vapourbeauty.com, b-glowing.com, and select retailers

Paula's Choice Earth Sourced Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel

We couldn’t honor Earth Day beauty without mentioning Paula’s Choice new Earth Sourced collection. The natural and vegan line of skincare offerings is free of fragrance and chemical irritants. The Perfectly Natural Cleansing Gel works great as a double duty remover of makeup and overall skin cleanser. Note: it’s also gluten-free. Plus, the packaging is green - aka 100% recyclable.

$16.95 (6.7 oz) at paulaschoice.com

Burt’s Bees Lip Shine

We love the tingling sensation left on our lips after use of Burt’s Bees chapstick, but sometimes (truthfully... most times) we just need a little color too. Burt’s Bees Lip Shines provide a sheer, glassy layer of color with a 100% natural formula. Available in six shades.

$6.99 on soap.com, Target, and other retailers

Orico London Rush Hour Dry Body Oil

Sometimes the body just needs an extra oomph of moisture, which is why we love a good body oil. But more often than not, although oil provides that added moisture, it feels like it takes so much longer to absorb compared to a traditional lotion. Enter: Orico Rush Hour Dry Body Oil, which includes Rosehip oil and Macadamia oil in a formula that is rapidly absorbed and awesome for a go-go-go schedule.

Perfectly fitting with the spirit of Earth Day, Orico does not have outer packaging, and all of its materials is recyclable. The brand also is a proud supporter of The World Land Trust (WLT), a UK-based conservation group that works to save critically threatened habitats around the world. The best kind of beauty is the kind that gives back!

$40.00 at oricolondon.com

NEVO by Pravana

PRAVANA’s new NEVO collection showcases natural hair care solutions in 100% biodegradable packaging - and it looks as sleek as anything else. The collection of all-natural shampoos and conditioners smell fantastic and contains PRAVANA’s exclusive Drops of the Amazon - a natural complex designed to nurture and preserve the surface of hair with three ingredients derived from plants found in where else - but the Amazon.

We gave the Reparative Shampoo & Conditioner a shot and were pleased with how soft and silky hair was after use. Hair needs hydration too!

$19.00 each (10.1 oz) at select salons and pravana.com

John Master’s Organics

USDA certified John Master’s Organics has us raving about yet another lavender scent. The Lavender Hydrating Mist for Skin & Hair maximizes the natural anti-inflammatory properties of lavender to soothe and hydrate both skin and hair.

Gently spritz and let the mist work its magic in leaving you feeling refreshed.

$16.00 (2 fl. oz.) at johnmasters.com
