Become a Bathing Beauty (Naturally!)
“Green-eyed Girl” is PrettyCity.com’s
monthly guide to the latest beauty products and treatment
trends reflecting a consciousness for the environment
and personal health. If it’s organic, we know
about it; if it’s helping our environment while
keeping us looking and feeling our best, we love it.
And, you can rest assured, we're ready to dish.
This month, we've rounded up a bevy of bath and shower
products that are both delightfully green and unreasonably
Scent is a powerful thing. But all too often, it is
misused. Not so with Earthworks, a paraben-free collection
of eco-friendly bath and body products. The first thing
that struck us as we unwrapped the delicate, eco-friendly
paper that encases Earthworks' triple milled Mandarine
soap is its heavenly fragrance. Indescribable really,
the scent is one that instantly transports you, like
the memory of Mom's cranberry muffins, or the sweet
fragrance of a baby. It's a scent that demands
you close your eyes and breathe deeply, as if to consume
its blissful aroma.
Crafted in England, the triple milled soap is rich
with shea butter, jojoba and coconut oils ($10). The
pur-essence Mandarine Bath Oil ($30) boasts an exotic
combination of citruses and florals while Earthworks'
Mandarine Body Lotion ($24) complements the Mandarine
Bath Collection with a proprietary blend of Sweet Almond
Oil, Organic Coconut, Grape Seed Oil and more. Shop
the entire collection at earthworksproducts.com.
Touted as a line of bath and body products for the
“urban princess,” we adore Principessa’s
sweet smelling collection of lotions, scrubs, shower
creams and more.
Bianco Breeze, a hair and body powder bursting
with the appealing fragrance of Organic Chamomilla and
Organic Calendula is a must have. This talc-free, multi-use
powder absorbs excess oil when applied to the hair and
keep’s skin soft and shower-fresh from day to

Sinful. In a word, that is Pure Hapa, a bath and body
collection straight from the black beaches of Hawaii
that smells so incredibly good, after applying it you
may end up on the menu.
The Haupia Orange Soufflé Body Cream
($39) contains a proprietary sweet orange essential
oil blend paired with chamomile and papaya extracts
to calm skin. Sure, it will moisturize skin as well
as any other high quality cream, but it’s the
scent, bursting with the ripe juiciness of oranges,
that will truly sweep you away.
Skip the trip to Hawaii, one whiff of this delicious
cream and you’ll surely be swept away.
the weather warms up and we get ready to bare more skin,
LaLicious comes to the rescue with their exfoliating
Soufflé Scrub ($34). Jam-packed with
cane sugar, proteins, vitamins and minerals, a slather
of the scrub left us smooth, moisturized, and to our
delight, without the need for lotion afterwards.
Their decadent Whipped
Body Soap ($18) includes coconut and safflower
seed oil to hydrate and replenish, while the island-inspired
scents—like Lily Mango, Tahitian Flower, and Island
Guava—leaves behind delicately-perfumed, Spring-worthy
Best of all, LaLicious keeps their all-natural
products paraben and sulfate-free. Shop these goodies
