Green-Eyed Girl: 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 delicious.

Mandarine Bath Collection

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.

 

Principessa Beauty

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 night.

Get it for $24 at Principessabeauty.com.

 

Pure Hapa

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.

 

As the weather warms up and we get ready to bare more skin, LaLicious comes to the rescue with their exfoliating Sugar 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 skin.

Best of all, LaLicious keeps their all-natural products paraben and sulfate-free. Shop these goodies and others at www.lalicious.com.
