Good Earth Beauty BCA Beauty Box

I’ve written about Good Earth Beauty many times. They’ve been kind enough to send products for review which is so appreciated. But there are more reasons why Good Earth Beauty is a favorite here. Their site is one that carries only natural and organic beauty products. They have many brands that I love plus there’s the Good Earth Beauty Brand to admire.

Cleaning up on Labor Day with a Good Earth Beauty soap giveaway

samples

We’ve talked about Good Earth Beauty many times on Beauty Info Zone. This is a natural and organic beauty site that only carries brands that meet those criteria. They also have their own brand that we’ve been proud to use and give away to our readers.

Good Earth Beauty has once again offered to spoil two of our readers and luckily me too. Today I’m featuring 3 of their soaps which I’ve found to be terrific.

HONEY OATMEAL SCRUB SOAP is my personal favorite. This can be used on both face and body and it’s basically fragrance free. It’s not only a gentle exfoliating soap but it’s a moisturizing one as well. I like to use it on my body, especially when I’m shaving my legs.

Ingredients: saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, goat milk, honey, oatmeal, crushed apricot seeds

Good Earth Beauty Honey Oatmeal Scrub

ARGAN JOJOBA SOAP is one of the newest in the Good Earth Beauty line and it’s especially excellent if you have sensitive skin or skin conditions like psoriasis or ezcema. But with its terrific ingredients it’s just as great for all of us.

Ingredients: saponified oils of olive, coconut, palm, shea butter, argan, jojoba, avocado, and camellia oils, honey, oatmeal and goat milk

Good Earth Beauty Argan Jojoba Soap

This contains both camellia oil and avocado oil which are very soothing to your skin. There is a fragrance to it that is light and refreshing. Nothing that lingers to interfere with whatever else you are using.

Good Earth Beauty Argan Jojoba Soap

ACTIVATED CHARCOAL SOAP + TEA TREE is another new one from Good Earth Beauty and is more specialized as it is great for people with skin problems, especially acne. It contains all natural Activated charcoal with tea tree and lavender to help wash away body and facial problems.

Ingredients: saponified organic olive, coconut, palm oil and shea butter, activated charcoal, tea tree and lavender essential oils

Good Earth Beauty Activated Charcoal Soap + Tea Tree

Good Earth Beauty Activated Charcoal Soap + Tea Tree

There are no dyes in the Good Earth Beauty Activated Charcoal Soap + Tea Tree, it’s all natural.

All the soaps made by Good Earth Beauty, 10 in all, are made in small batches with ingredients that they trust. Of course the brand is cruelty free too.  —  Marcia

GIVEAWAY INFORMATION: There will be 2 winners of 2 soaps each. Pick 2 different soaps out of either Honey Oatmeal, Argan Jojoba, or Activated Charcoal as your choice. US only, the giveaway ends on 9/13 @11:59 p.m. EDT. Be sure you are a BIZ subscriber and that your comment shows in the comment box.

What’s in my summer tote? Marvis, Soap and Paper, Good Earth Beauty, and Eddie Funkhouser

What’s in my summer tote? Marvis, Soap and Paper, Good Earth Beauty, and Eddie Funkhouser

samples affiliate links

This summer I have been on more mini-vacations than ever!  So I’ve become really, really good at throwing together a quick overnight bag or a one day travel tote bag, whether I’m off the beach or off for an 8 hour car ride to pick up my daughter from camp. Here are four (or five, depending on how you want to count them!) items that are always in my summer tote.

Marvis Aquatic Mint Toothpaste

I have been a big fan of Marvis Toothpaste for years and years and I love the travel size ($6) tube! Lately I’ve been digging the Aquatic Mint flavor and I also love Jasmine Mint, the tube I recently finished. There are lots of cool flavors available and let’s face it…the packaging is so awesome, anyone pillaging your tote for lip balm is going to be impressed with how hip you are!

Soap and Paper Green Tea Shea Hand Cream

Soap and Paper Jasmine Shea Hand Cream

Soap and Paper Shea Hand Cream

Any bag I pack always has hand cream in it and Soap and Paper has the best hand cream in a perfect travel size. The Petite Shea Hand Cream ($9, 1 oz.) is thick and rich, with an elegant shea-based formula that totally soothes dry skin. It’s velvety goodness. The Green Tea scent is natural and clean and the Jasmine scent is dreamy and intoxicating. I can’t decide which is my favorite so I just pack both.

Good Earth Beauty Citrus White Grapefruit Perfume

Good Earth Beauty Citrus White Grapefruit Perfume

I love to have a refreshing fragrance at my fingertips and Good Earth Beauty has a perfect option – the rollerball Citrus White Grapefruit Perfume ($21). This is a gorgeous scent – light, refreshing, fresh as a summer’s day. The scent is an intoxicating combination of citrusy white grapefruit, tangerine, sweet orange, and mimosa. There isn’t any alcohol or water in this perfume, it’s straight up essential oils, so you only need a tiny amount to smell spectacular all day long. Love this, and you need it in your tote ASAP. Oh, it’s also vegan, organic, cruelty free and gluten-free.

Eddie Funkhouser Quattro Variable Lash Mascara

A simple swipe of mascara can take me from looking sickly to looking fantastic in three seconds, particularly with Eddie Funkhouser Quattro Variable Lash Mascara ($13). One tube of mascara gives four different finishes, from natural to major drama.  I might do a quick swipe of #2 for a day look, and then later on add a coat of #4 for big, thick lashes.  What I love is this mascara never smudges or smears, regardless of the temperature or humidity.  It’s a perfect mascara to have in your summer tote!

I have a few more items in my summer tote, but these four (or five, since I can’t choose between the Jasmine and Green Tea Soap and Paper Hand Cream scents!) are constants. What are some of your must haves in your summer tote? – Lisa

Pretty red lips with ZuZu Lip Gloss in Caliente from Good Earth Beauty

logo-good-earth-beauty

If you are looking for excellent natural and organic beauty products, you’ve got to check out Good Earth Beauty. We have tried quite a few products from this online store, including some from their own line, and we haven’t been disappointed yet. They recently sent a lip gloss by ZuZu, which is made by Gabriel Cosmetics, and it’s a winner.

ZuZu Luxe Lip Gloss in Caliente

ZuZu Luxe Lip Gloss in Caliente

The ZuZu Luxe Lip Gloss ($18.15) is a luscious lip gloss with lots of pigment and lots of shine. The wear is pretty good – it lasts several hours and has great slip. It comes in 12 different colors and I have Caliente, which is an orange-red. I don’t typically reach for red shades because they tend to make my lips look even thinner, but this is a very pretty shade that is bright and somehow works for spring.

ZuZu Luxe Lip Gloss in Caliente

Like most natural and organic products, the ZuZu Luxe Lip Gloss is a little more expensive than regular lip glosses. However, when you consider the ingredient list and the fact that it’s cruelty free, I think the extra cost is justified.

Cleaning up with Good Earth Beauty (and a giveaway)

logo-good-earth-beauty

You’ve read about Good Earth Beauty several times on Beauty Info Zone. This is a brand that we are always happy to receive for articles and even happier to use. The Good Earth Beauty site is one that sells brands that are both natural and organic and in addition they’ve created their own brand which has all that goodness. Today we have a few bath and body products to share with you and also a giveaway.

MARCIA is using SHOWER WHIP

Shower Whip is an exfoliating whip that is also a soap. It’s available in 5 scrumptious fragrances: Flower Cart, Pink Lemonade, Chocolate Amour, Coconut Lime, and Lavender Vanilla.

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip in Flower Cart

They are available in 12 oz tubs and all contain natural ingredients. I was sent a smaller size to test out. What I’ve found is that it’s gentle enough for both my face and body.

Ingredients:

Organic RAW Shea Butter, Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic Sunflower Oil, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Vegetable Glycerin, Powdered Volcanic Ash, Vitamin E, Grapeseed Oil, Natural fragrance and essential oils.

Flower Cart is the one I have and the one that our giveaway winner will be receiving. The Good Earth Beauty description says it all: “Flower Cart Scent Description – Filled with the delightful and perfectly balanced aromas of blooming tulips, heavenly frangipani, purple hyacinth, exotic orchid and sweet lily of the valley.”

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

Good Earth Beauty Shower Whip

The granules in the whip are very subtle which I think is best for my skin. I want to add moisture to my skin, not remove it with harshness. It washes off well with either my hands or a wash cloth leaving a subtle scent behind. This isn’t a sugar scrub or a salt scrub, instead I believe the granules are from the powdered volcanic ash. Since it contains shea butter along with oils it’s a good moisturizing scrub that only strips away the dead skin and leaves behind softness.

LISA is using STRAWBERRY MARGARITA BODY WASH and STRAWBERRY LIP SCRUBGood Earth Beauty

This is one of those times I really wish our blog had a ‘scratch and sniff’ feature. The super scrumptious strawberry scent for both the Strawberry Margarita Body Wash ($18) and the Strawberry Lip Scrub ($8.25) is out of this world. These can be purchased separately, or – even better – together. The 8 0z. bottle of body wash and a 1 oz. jar of lip scrub set goes for just $20, a really terrific value.

Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Margarita Body WashThe Strawberry Margarita Body Wash is a very hydrating wash that scrubs up to a soft foam. It has some great ingredients, including organic milk and honey, that make it a very soothing soap that works for sensitive skin. The scent is a combination of fresh lime and ripe strawberry, along with just a hint of lemon. I am not kidding when I say that it smells INCREDIBLY delicious. It isn’t sugary sweet like some strawberry fragrances.  It’s more of a grown up take – I guess maybe that’s good since it’s modeled after an alcoholic drink – yet it will still take you back to your childhood and soft summer days picking ripe, juicy strawberries.  Good Earth Beauty Strawberry Lip ScrubGood Earth Beauty inside Strawberry Lip ScrubAnother mouth-watering scent can be found in the Strawberry Lip Scrub. It smells and tastes so darn good (the taste I am sure thanks to the sugar that puts the scrub into the product). A tiny scoop of the sugary scrub with a bit of water makes for a delicious exfoliating treatment for lips that leaves them plump and perfect. So yummy I really can’t get enough. All of Good Earth Beauty products have no parabens, pesticides, petroleum, propylene glycol, phthalates, sulfates, or artificial colors, and they are handmade with love in the USA.

Great picks from Good Earth Beauty: nvey eco Lip Gloss and Gabriel Blush

nvey eco and GabrielAfter reading all of Marcia’s reviews about the fabulous brands available on Good Earth Beauty, I decided to take a few of the products to try for myself. This is an amazing website that features wonderful brands that focus on natural, organic ingredients. I guess I can’t blame Marcia for always loving the samples we get!
