Ecco Bella's Organic Appeal
Natural beauty products can get a bad rap: without the high-polish gleam of fancy packaging or shimmery, synthetic finishes, it can sometimes be tricky to look beyond the surface and see the integrity and quality of these good-for-you glow-getters. When we first heard of Ecco Bella last summer (thanks to spokesperson Tracy Anderson's ahem, glowing reviews), we knew we'd found a range of products that ticked all the right marks. Responsibly formulated? Check. Nearly entirely organic? Yep. Colors insanely wearable? Oh, yea. Skincare actually effective? Big-time-yes.
Adding Ecco Bella to The Wanderlust subscription box was a no-brainer (testing all those products was hard work, but we toughed it out). Knowing that the products were kind to our skin (it is our largest organ, after all) and also wielded insanely effective beauty powers made us feel really good about sharing them with you. If you're new to the green beauty trend, take heart: it's not that different from your standard beauty fare, just gentler and powered by botanicals, not synthetics. Below we're shouting out our top 5 EB products — the ones that made us instant converts. Ready to go green?
Concealer is one of the hardest products to find in the natural arena — but this one has the smooth glide of a conventional cover-up stick. It's perfect for those with sensitive eyes or skin — even if you're applying it with a seriously heavy hand to erase signs of a late night, you won't break out or get rashy. Plus, the two shades really work seamlessly across nearly all skin tones.
MIST-ON TONER VITAMIN FACE SPRAY
Ecco Bella's VitaminCells power this refreshing toner, which restores the skin pH balance to help it stay clear and glowy. Gluten-free and vegan, it's a great pick-me-up for hot days and dry, arid climates. We'd never fly without it!
FLOWERCOLOR NATURAL MASCARA
Natural clay and flower wax replace the lacquers and alcohols usually found in traditional mascaras, making this formula ultra-nourishing and safe for even the most sensitive eyes. Highly defining and lash-enhancing, the formula is water-resistant but not waterproof, which means it won't run but doesn't need to be scrubbed off.
REVITALIZE ORGANIC FACIAL TREATMENT SERUM
This golden elixir has so many uses we've lost count: it acts as our cuticle balm, frizz tamer, night serum, head-to-toe hydrator, and, in a pinch, perfume — the scent is heavenly.
SOFT EYELINER PENCILS
Ultra-gliding with soft vegetable waxes, these super-gentle pencils pack a lot of pigment into every stroke with zero tugging or dragging across the delicate eye area. We love how the hues are bold but the texture is incredibly soft and natural feeling.
