Body scrubs, makeup, hair treatments. From head to toe, we love it all…naturally! What we love even more? When these beauty goodies are packed with natural ingredients.
The latest "green" beauty booster to hit the shelves: bamboo. This sustainable material is being used for everything from exfoliating dry skin to giving your strands strength. It even promises to help lengthen lashes. Oh, and did we mention it can be harvested with little impact on the environment? How bamboo-tiful!

PRIORI® Eco-Friendly, Cruelty-Free Brushes
Get a grip on your makeup application with Priori's eco-friendly and cruelty-free brushes. The handles are constructed from bamboo, with a stem made from recycled aluminum. The bristles are from the highest quality non-animal derived taklon fibers. We couldn't wait to get our hands on one of these and recently gave the Kabuki Brush a try. It's now a staple in our beauty bag.
Priori recommends using this brush for buffing and blending foundation. The Kabuki's pocket size makes it easy to reach those places where special attention is needed, like under your eyes or the bridge of your nose. Many days we skip foundation, so we also used it to apply blush and bronzer. The bristles are thick, soft and dense, making for an even and flawless application. There were no gaps in coverage on our faces. We also found that its size makes it perfect for glamming up our collarbones with shimmer. Another plus? Toss it in even the tiniest of clutches for touch- ups on the go. Scoop up Priori's Powder and Concealer brushes for a complete set.
Price: Kabuki Brush- $20, Concealer Brush- $15, Powder Brush- $25 on BeautyBridge.com
