I’ve adored the La Fresh line (they feature different types of portable beauty wipes for travel) for years. The Sunscreen Wipes, Makeup Remover Wipes, and Lens & Screen Cleaning Wipes have saved me more times that I can begin to count. So when La Fresh contacted the BIZ offering samples of their new anti-aging skin care line called Eco Beauty Be Good, I was very interested. The concept behind this skin care line is “to make chic, effective products that are good for your skin while being conscientious about the environment.”
The Eco-Beauty Be Good packaging definitely had me at ‘Hello’. Inside each box is an inspirational saying:
I just love this! And since I tested a daytime moisturizer and a night moisturizer, it was a wonderfully positive way to begin and end every day.
Good Day. Day Moisturizer ($40) has a whole slew of ingredients that moisturize and repair skin, including peptides, hyaluronic acid, natural cucumber, aloe, antioxidant panthenol (vitamin B), and vitamins C and E.
This creamy moisturizer comes in a jar, so resist sticking fingers in to get product. Even hands you think are squeaky clean can have lingering bacteria, and that last thing you want is to contaminate your moisturizer. Use a little spatula of some sort to scoop out what you need. I have been known to break the nails off a nail wheel to use as a makeshift spatula. Good Day, Day Cream is a thick, fragrance-free moisturizer that hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It does not have sunscreen, so you’ll want a separate product for that. This moisturizer improves collagen production, so skin looks fresh and younger.
Good Night. Night Cream ($40) is an evening moisturizer that has great anti-aging ingredients like peptides and hyaluronic acid, along with the mega-hydration of natural shea butter and skin healing aloe.
Again, this is a jar, so don’t give into temptation and keep those fingers outta there! Good Night, Night Cream is thicker than Good Day, Day Moisturizer. It has no discernible fragrance. While it has some similar ingredients as the day cream for fighting wrinkles, this provides powerful hydration that is best for combination or dry skin. I have combination skin, so I pat this on my dry areas (cheeks and forehead) at night for powerful plumping action.
Hello. Lips Treat ($10) is a lip balm that moisturizes and plumps lips with oligopeptides, shea butter, and cocoa butter. It also has an oil blend of sweet almond, jojoba, peppermint and cinnamon oils. Most lips will love this, but the peppermint and cinnamon can be a skin irritant for some.
The ogliopeptides are awesome for supporting collagen production, so regular use of this lip balm can make lips more full and lush.
I love the message from La Fresh – besides using Eco-Beauty products, they recommend that you ‘exercise modestly, drink plenty of water, eat healthy meals, sleep enough hours, hug often & smile more.’ It just doesn’t get any better than that.
Other products available in the Eco-Beauty Be Good line include Good Start. Face Serum, Good Bye. Face Cleansing Wipes, and Good Times. Facial Treatment Cloth Masks. All Eco-Beauty Be Good products are free of parabens, sulfates, triclosan, dyes, PEGs, artificial fragrances and animal byproducts. Be good to your skin and the environment and take a look at Eco-Beauty Be Good! - Lisa
