Thanks to my eclectic library browsing habits, I am currently reading ‘The Green Beauty Guide‘.
This is not a book that should be read by the faint of heart, especially if they use a lot of cosmetic products. Even as a low-level user, it has made me think a lot about what I’m putting on my skin, and thus into my body.
As someone who tries to be green and natural about these things, I’ve found it distressing how many supposedly green cosmetics actually aren’t. I’m fortunate that we do have good genuinely green skin care companies here in New Zealand that make products I can use (I’m particularly fond of Trilogy) However, I’m a bit stuck on the make up front, now I’ve discovered The Body Shop is green more in their branding than their ingredients. While I’m not a big make up user, I do need some for my dance performances. And it is nice to throw on the odd bit of eyeliner and lippy…
Anyone have any suggestions?
