Tarte Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint in Park Avenue Princess ($32) is infused with Amazonian clay and maracuja. Tarte's products are always free of parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate and synthetic fragrance, and they make sustainable packaging choices whenever possible.

To rid yourself of dull skin, try Pangea Organics Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean and Cranberry Facial Scrub ($28). The brand practices sustainable agriculture and culture–everything from fair trade sourcing and organic farming to living wages and the use of renewable, recycled and recyclable resources.

Pacifica Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes ($5.99) are perfect for traveling and post-gym wipe downs. The brand recycles and uses post-consumer materials, and all of their boxes are all 100% recyclable.

Lavanila will plant two trees for every new order on, as well as for every new “Like” on their Facebook page, new twitter follower and new instagram follower throughout the month of April. We're obsessed with their The Healthy Deodorant in Fresh Vanilla Grapefruit ($18).

Zachary Quinto and Alanis Morissette designed limited edition packaging for the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream ($46.50 each), which will be available starting mid April. 100% of the proceeds going to one of Kiehl’s favorite charities, Recycle Across America.

JASON Lavender Body Wash ($9.59) is the best eco-friendly addition to your shower. It cleanses with botanical surfactants and safely nourishes with Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5, and also free of Parabens, Pthalates, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Myreth Sulfate.

Desert Essence Cactus Flower Nourishing Body Oil ($7.99) contains no alcohol, artificial detergents, color or synthetic perfumes, and the brand sources majority of its ingredients from the desert.

Bite Beauty Cinnamon Plumping Lip Oil ($22) naturally hydrates, shines, and plumps the appearance of lips in one spicy swipe.

Cargo's Plantlove collection is completely eco-friendly and plantable. That's right, you can plop the outside packaging in the ground once you're done. We're loving Cargo Plantlove Eyeshadow in Thyme ($12.60).

The Beautyblender ($19.95), our fav, is an ergonomically designed non-disposable sponge applicator that allows you to apply foundation and SPF flawlessly.
