The Green Bridal Beauty Products Our Editors Are Currently Loving For April

  |   By Kimberly Aglipay
With more and more beauty brands taking part in creating products that are both good for people and the environment, there's no excuse to not incorporate them into our beauty routine. In honour of Earth Day (April 22nd), we've picked ten green beauty products that you need to incorporate into your beauty routine for your wedding day. Not only do these products contain natural, organic ingredients, but they're also incredibly well-formulated to be long-lasting on your face—which you'll want, all the way into the wee hours of the night. ILIA Multi-Stick In "All Of Me" ILIA is a natural and organic beauty line founded by Vancouver-born Sasha Plavsic. The multi-stick is a holy grail item for our editors—we love that you can get multiple uses out of this product, which is . Swipe on your lids, cheeks and lips for a cohesive, naturally beautiful look. Plus, this shade's name reminds us of aptly named John Legend song, so it's only fitting to use it on your wedding day.

Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil For brides with sensitive skin, this product is a must-have. The healing properties in rosehip oil make it perfect to heal any blemishes, pigmentation, dry skin and an overall dull complexion. This rosehip oil in particular uses a volcanically sourced CO2 supercritical extraction to ensure that the oil stays fresh, unlike many oils, which are cold-pressed and can change in smell over time.


Source Essentielle Naturally derived ingredients are the hallmark of Source Essentielle, L'Oreal Professionnel's first line of natural, professional hair care products, with one especially cool feature: the container is refillable, allowing you to go to a salon with your empty container to refill it. Four different ranges in the line are for different hair types, which include normal hair, dry hair, coloured hair and delicate scalp. This line doesn't launch until May, but for now you need to put it on your list as one of the must-have hair products to get your hair ready for your big day.

Odacité Crystal Contour Gua Sha Rose Contour Beauty Tool If you already have a jade roller in your kit, here's another must-have you need: a gua sha tool. Gua sha, an ancient Chinese technique in which massage is used to stimulate the skin, giving it a refreshed, revitalized look. The contours of this tool make it great for getting into areas such as your jawline and under eyes, and the fact that it's made out of rose quartz means it likely won't break or get damaged.


Kjaer Weis Pressed Powder Compact Kjaer Weis is the luxe green beauty brand that proves you don't have to sacrifice luxury in order to go green. The brand only uses certified organic and natural ingredients, and this fine-milled translucent powder is perfect to set your makeup or for touchups throughout your wedding day. Not does the metal compact it comes in feel especially luxe and is made to last, but instead of throwing it away after the powder is done, the compact is refillable.


Cocoon Apothecary Skin Care Starter Kit For Normal To Dry Skin If you don't have a wedding-day skin care routine (or any skin care routine, really), this is the perfect kit to pick up. With a facial cleanser, toner and cream, the kit provides all the steps necessary to get your skin glowing before your big day. The plant-based cleanser and cream include organic oils that cleanse while keeping your skin hydrated, and the toner is alcohol-free and contains organic rose water. The set is also the perfect size for travel—pack it in your suitcase for your honeymoon to ensure gorgeous skin long after your nuptials.


Clove + Hallow Lip Velvet In "Uptown" On your wedding day you'll want a lip colour that requires minimal touch-ups and lasts virtually all day. Our green beauty pick for lip is Clove + Hallow's Lip Velvet in "Uptown," a gorgeous brick-red that enhances the natural colour of your lips and is the perfect timeless colour for your wedding. Formulated with coconut oil and shea butter, not only is this lip colour long-lasting but unlike other liquid lipsticks, it will keep your pout moisturized, too.


RMS Beauty Living Luminizer Revealed as one of the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle's favourite products, and it's quickly become a favourite of ours as well. The RMS Beauty Living Luminizer gives you an incredibly healthy, natural, glowing-from-within look that we absolutely love. Apply to your cheekbones, cupid's bow and brow bone for the ultimate makeup finisher.


Rocky Mountain Soap Co. Pomegranate Day Cream This face cream has quickly risen the ranks as a cult classic among green beauty lovers. Made with pomegranate oil that smells absolutely delicious, the cream is made to not only nourish but also protect your skin from free-radicals. Black Oat Extract provides a protective barrier that keeps your skin moisturized.

The product, which is made of a blend of including arctic cloudberry seed, camellia and argan, is housed in a glass tube with a 24K gold-plated roller ball, so your lips are given the luxe treatment.


Suncoat The Peelables Nail Polish In Petal Blush This Guelph-based company produces a unique line of nail polishes with natural, clean ingredients that's virtually odour-free. The line also includes a plant-based nail polish remover, the first of its kind. But this nail polish in particular is special, in that it is peelable and doesn't require remover to take off—perfect for traveling during your honeymoon when you want to switch up your look but don't want to pack nail polish remover in your suitcase. With a price point comparable to most nail polishes found in drugstores, we think it's easy to make the switch to a more natural option.

Our green pick is the LASPA Moisturizing Mineral Sunscreen, which is fragrance free and contains organic ingredients in its mineral-based products.
