Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

With tomorrow being Earth Day I thought I’d share with you some Earth Day events and products that will all make us winners on Earth.

Eco Tools


EcoTools makes wonderful Earth friendly products like these super-soft makeup brushes.  Made with 100% synthetic taklon bristles, cruelty free, and bamboo handles what’s not to love about these brushes!



Jane Iredale


Jane Iredale Refillable Compact made from anodized aluminum.  Anodizing has been called the “green,” or environmentally friendly finish in the metal finishing field for some time. The process releases few toxins into the environment, uses almost no heavy materials, and uses chemicals and metals that are recycled easily. Finished products made from anodized aluminum are nontoxic and can be recycled over and over again.



Dickinsons (217x435)

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner.  100% all natural witch hazel which has ingredients that consumers can actually understand when the flip over the bottle.  It is the ONLY 100 percent natural Pore Perfecting Toner that is non-drying and gentle for all skin types on the market. 

Feeling good comes from a natural lifestyle so Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel and the Women’s Sports Foundation teamed up for the Tone Up Challenge, a 14 day simple work out regimen that incorporates tips to tone, the body, face and mind – www.toneupchallenge.com.

Burts Bees


 Burt’s Bees is excited to celebrate 40 years of Earth Day this month!  They are asking everyone to “Find Their Inner Burt.”  The co-founder, Burt was a photo journalist turned beekeeper, whose beeswax became the stuff of beauty miraacles.   That was 25 years ago, but his belief that beauty should be both people and earth friendly remains today.  

They believe the small choices we make all day add up and that being conscious of the Earth can also be fun!   check out FindYourBurt.com and bring your eco-motives to life, Burt-style.   And follow Burt’s on Twitter @BurtsBees.





Award-winning chef, author and sustainable food leader Michel Nischan’s newest book, Sustainably Delicious, is launching just in time for Earth Day—and FRESH cosmetics and FOOD & WINE magazine are teaming up with Michel and his Wholesome Wave Foundation for a nationwide celebration!

10% of all FRESH product purchases (in store and online) will be donated to Nischan’s Wholesome Wave Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to make healthy, affordable locally grown foods available to communities that would otherwise not have access to them.
