Our Friday column writers over at Healing Lifestyles & Spas have awarded a brand new batch of eco-friendly, planet-approved products for their Second Annual Earth Day Beauty Awards. The best in hair, face, body and cosmetics have been scrupulously examined. Only products that meet the highest standards (free of Parabens, phthalates, triclosan, or formaldehyde) make top marks. Make a change, look hot, save the planet—I’m sold. And hey, most of the products are AFFORDABLE! I know, we were pleasantly surprised, too. And the 2011 winners are… Best Shampoo: Desert Essence Organics Green Apple Ginger Shampoo Best Facial Scrub: Collective Wellbeing Honey Buff (5.1 oz; $15) Best Body Lotion: Acure Organics Cocoa Butter and CoQ10 Unscented Lotion (7 oz; $9.99) Best Mascara: 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Mascara in Black Tea ($18) Continue on to see the full list of award-winning products HERE.
