April 22 is Earth Day, and we are taking a look at brands that are doing their part to help the environment.
This awesome drugstore brand has portable eco-friendly things, so you don't have to forsake your skincare routine while on the go. Feel good about reducing waste at the same time too. The Neutrogena Compostable Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes lift away dirt, oil, and sunscreen and remove up to 99% of makeup – even waterproof–made with 100% plant-based fibers. When you discard them in your home compost pile, they’re biodegradable in 35 days. ($6.49, 25 count)
Their serum capsules work in just one week to give you more beautiful-looking skin. The Rapid Wrinkle Repair® Retinol Serum is a fresh and precise dose of pure retinol, perfect for new users looking to add retinol to their routine. It targets fine lines, dullness, and elasticity.
The Rapid Tone Repair with 20% concentrated vitamin C capsules is a powerful antioxidant, making your skin look brighter and smoother. It also delivers a more even tone. The capsules are made from seaweed, and they're biodegradable in water. You can find these at stores like Target and target.com. The wipes are about $6.50 for a 25 count, and the serum capsules are about $26 for a 30 count.
Haircare: Rhyme & Reason
This eco-friendly haircare brand truly believes that caring for the planet should be as easy as caring for your hair. They have a huge line of shampoos, conditioners, and treatments, catering to every hair type and need. Whether it’s more volume, to protect your curls, or to repair hair damage, it's color-treated with all vegan and cruelty-free and made with up to 97% natural plant-based ingredients like argan oil. Even their packaging is sustainable, made from 100% recycled plastic and 100% recyclable. They’re the first haircare brand to manufacture a 100% recycled cap, which means the whole thing can be recycled together – no need to separate. They donate 1% of their sales each year to Galapagos Conservation Trust, long-time partners who are helping to solve the problem of plastic pollution in our oceans. All products are $8.99, exclusively at Target, and #nonewplastic is their hashtag to follow.
Animal Repellent: Liquid Fence
Now, Liquid Fence is something to repel deer, rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, and other pesky animals that roam around your house this time of year. It uses scent-and taste-deterrents to keep them away from your plants, shrubs, trees, and vines. It creates an invisible barrier that won’t harm animals or plants. Use them and store them as directed. And it's rain-resistant too, great for using all year long. They don’t even have to take a bite to be repelled. It works on the scent. And because the animals’ natural aversion never goes away, it doesn’t have to be rotated with other repellents. It's affordable, costs between $13 and $25, and is available at home and garden stores like The Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Walmart, as well as online at Amazon.
