Today is a special day for 2 reasons: first, it’s my birthday (wahoo!) and second, The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has launched a Verification Program that marks natural beauty products as healthier for you. To celebrate, we’re giving away 5 beauty boxes worth $540 USD each — Seriously?! Yes, seriously. Enter at the bottom of the post!!

For those of you that aren’t aware of EWG, most of us green b-bloggers use the site as a resource for checking out ingredients that we are unsure of, and see how each ingredient fares impacts your health. Your natural beauty shopping gets a whole lot easier. <3


EWG’s mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment and the new EWG VERIFIED™ program aims to be the standard in the health and wellness space. The EWG VERIFIED™ mark takes the guesswork out of searching the product aisles (LPN will also help you find the most effective and high quality brands). All of the products that will be carrying this verification will:

Highlights from the EWG Beauty Box

This box was jam packed lovely little bits of everything from soap and deodorant to highlighter and lip glosses, but here “are a few of my favourite things” (yes, definitely just wrote that to the tune from The Sound of Music).

Rejuva Minerals Pur Lips Lipstick

Boasting sunflower oil, jojoba, pomegranate and coconut oil, this pretty lip stick is pretty pure. While of course there are some mineral pigments to get this hue, it’s certainly a healthier pick for your body. The one pictured below is “Red Red Wine” and a perfect evening tone.

W3LL People Bio Brightener

I am a huge fan of high lighters – I use my RMS Living Luminizer daily; however, I got the chance to try this beauty from the EWG Verified box. It is a great summer highlighter, with the slight golden tint. Loving this for high on my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose. Shop it here!

Biossance The Revitalizer

100% plan derived squalane? Yes please! It’s super lightweight, so perfection under your makeup and moisturizers beautifully. What is squalane you ask? Well, a lot of people confuse squalene with squalane, the former, comes from sharks, while the later, comes from plants – in Biossance’s case, from sugar cane. It doesn’t oxidize and helps encourage cell turnover – great for transitioning to spring!Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Just the Goods Vegan Perfume Oil in Wild Woods

Super safe, and affordable, this skincare line is handmade and clean! Great for the green beauty on a budget. I am loving this natural perfume roller in Wild Woods – a blend of essential oils derived from exotic woods and smoky florals with a touch of sweet orange essential oil to put it all into context. Includes labdanum, rosewood, sandalwood, orange, patchouli and just a hint of rose. Love!
