Can Black Friday Shopping Be Ethical?

stocksnap_fmeuwemb97For the last few years, I’ve compiled tons of green beauty deals for Black Friday. As I’ve committed myself to making more ethical, sustainable, and minimalist purchases, my perspective on Black Friday is a bit different. My hope is that talking about it will encourage others to feel the same.

My First iHerb Haul + a Giveaway!

iHerb haul

I’m always on the hunt for outstanding products and equally awesome places to shop. iHerb is a great place to find affordable, natural and organic personal care products, food, and home goods. Not only am I a fan of iHerb’s product selection and prices, but I also admire their commitment to the environment through many eco-friendly initiatives like using recycled packaging, providing paperless orders, donating profits to various international charities, and the use of carbon neutral UPS shipments.

Read on to hear about my experience shopping at iHerb* and what I picked up in my first order. You can grab $5 off your first order using my code: BLG494. Plus, enter to win a $50 iHerb giftcard at the end of this post! (There will be 2 lucky winners!)

Celebrate Green Beauty Black Friday 2015!

GreenBeautyBlackFriday15

There’s no better time than now to reflect on the blessings we have and rejoice with friends and family. It’s also a great time to get shopping for those you love and to support small and local businesses!

I don’t like to emphasize shopping like crazy or finding the importance in things, but there are many great deals to encourage more people to be introduced to green beauty and buy fewer, better quality, nontoxic products. Green beauty can be accessible and affordable for all!

As always, I’ve compiled a list of the best green beauty Black Friday deals this year. This list will be updated as I receive more deal news, so keep checking back!

My Indie Beauty Expo Recap

Indie Beauty Expo event

The much anticipated, first ever Indie Beauty Expo was last week and it was probably the biggest green beauty event to hit New York City since A Night For Green Beauty 2 years ago. Of course, I had to attend and I was honored to not only be attending as a blogger and beauty aficionado, but also representing the editorial team from Thoughtfully Magazine along with our beauty editor, Rebecca Casciano.

CAP Beauty: NYC’s First Green Beauty Brick & Mortar Shop

When I first heard word that the founders behind the trendy West Village clothing and accessories boutique, Castor & Pollux were opening up a brick and mortar green beauty shop in NYC, I could barely contain my excitement. CAP Beauty (which stands for the store’s former name, Castor & Pollux as well as “clean and pure”) will be the first Manhattan store dedicated to natural, organic and plant-based beauty and wellness products.

Castor & Pollux will reopen as CAP Beauty in it’s newly renovated space in 2015. Featuring amazing local brands as well as new international brands to discover, CAP Beauty is already the talk of the town. Sarita of Edible Facial, organized a lovely blogger brunch and visit at CAP Beauty for all of us local folk. As expected, it was a fun time catching up with blogger friends (it never seems like enough time), meeting the store’s founders and other brand owners, and of course, drooling over the delicious beauty and skincare bounty. Heaven!

As a fellow deal-hunter, last year I decided to compile the best Black Friday deals I found for some of my favorite green beauty products and brands. Some of the best deals can be had during this holiday weekend and actually, some great pre-Black Friday deals are happening right now! I purchased a lot of things off my wishlist and discovered great, new products at amazing prices last year. I had so much fun sharing and updating my massive list of Black Friday/Cyber Monday promos that I’m doing it again this year!

Happy Shopping! Check out this year’s deals below:

Spotlight on Green Beauty Shops

Greenbeautyshops.jpg

Since I started going green with my beauty and skincare products, I’ve done a lot of online shopping (and I mean, A LOT). As someone who absolutely hates online shopping– I’m a touch-smell-feel-try-in-store kinda gal, I thought it’d be helpful to share my experiences with various online, one-stop green beauty shops across the spectrum. I love shopping from brands themselves (it always feels like a nice personal interaction) but, someones general green beauty shops are just more convenient with all the brands and products to shop from in one place.
