Where to Start When You Want to Switch to Green Beauty

Green beauty is getting better and better all the time. There are plenty of quality clean makeup and skincare products that are not only as good as regular makeup, but they’re even better because there’s nothing harmful in them! Quality products can sometimes mean bigger price tags, but not always. So let’s talk about some tips for switching over.

  1. Which product do you use most? I use foundation/concealer and lip products the most. So when I started switching my products over, foundation was the 1st to go. I went from being obsessed with the Armani foundation, to being obsessed with the Luminous Foundation by Vapour Organic Beauty. Not only did it give me the same finish, but it actually gave me more coverage with no breakouts!
  2. Decide what’s right for you. Not everyone cares about clean beauty and some people just want the major chemicals out of there, but don’t care about synthetic fragrances or dyes. If you’re not even sure what the bad stuff is, here’s a good list from Beauty Heroes. You can even print it out and put it in your wallet to have when you’re out.
  3. Go Slowly. You don’t have to do a major overhaul of all your stuff right away. Replacing product by product, when I ran out of something, was really helpful for me. I wasn’t wasting a bunch of product I already had and my wallet appreciated not having a big cost all at once.

Like I said, Vapour Organic Beauty is a good brand to start with. I started there and many many others start there. All of their products are super easy to use, travel well, and very pigmented and very quality! W3ll People is another great brand with great products and it’s more affordable. They just recently launched at Target too! Do you use any green beauty products? If so what are your favorites?

  1. These are great tips for those new to green beauty! It can definitely be daunting at first. I tried the W3ll People narcissist stick foundation, but found it a bit too thick to apply evenly. How’s the texture of the Vapour one?

    1. I haven’t tried the W3ll people one. I loooooove the Vapour Beauty one though! It’s super creamy with a light – medium coverage and so lightweight. Most of the time I forget to take it off… 😬

  2. I haven’t tried Vapour before 😮 It’s definitely on my list to try! The foundation sounds lovely. Have you seen W3ll People’s new tinted moisturizer? That looks amazing too. Ahh so many things on my wishlist haha 😂

    1. I actually tried the W3ll People one but I think I got a dud because the 1st application I loved then I didn’t go back to it for a couple days and when I did the product was all separated. It was really weird like the pigment separated from the oils or something and no matter how much I tried to shake it up it would never go back to how it was the 1st time. But I’ve seen other reviews and it seems good for everyone else, that’s why I think mine was just a bad one. There’s my novel about when I tried W3ll People tinted moisturizer. Haha 🙂

  3. I love this brand! I am shocked that it doesn’t get more attention. It’s just as good or better than the makeup sold at cosmetic counters and its green. I wonder why big cosmetic stores like Sephora, haven’t jumped on some of these green beauty brands to launch in stores…

    1. I love them too! I think it’s going to start happening more and more. W3ll People is in target now and I saw a couple brands recently did this Bloomingdales event so hopefully they start rolling out green products. Im hoping the more people get interested the more stores like Sephora will take notice. Let’s keep our fingers crossed! 😊

  4. I’m loving finding better green beauty products – makes me so much more confident and comfortable putting them on my skin. Have you heard of an app called Think Dirty? You scan a beauty products barcode into the app and it brings up how harmful/unnatural the ingredients are. It’s great zapping products around shops!
