2016 Green Beauty Awards

Posted on 01 January 2016

As we've been taking the month of January to reflect on what we want less and more of in 2017 and improving our overall wellness, we couldn't help but think on some of our green beauty favorites from last year. We love creating daily gratitude rituals here at Thoughtfully and discovering products that use the highest quality ingredients derived from nature, to nourish and feed our skin. So with the help of some of our clean beauty friends, we've rounded up a short list of stand-outs to create our first ever 2016 Thoughtfully Mag Green Beauty Awards.

MEET OUR JUDGES

Sheri Stroh, Makeup & Hair Artist (represented by the Plutino Group

# of Years Using Green Beauty: 8 (Makeup Artist for 16 years) 

Favorite Beauty Discovery of 2016: Plume Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum "For some reason, in late fall, the lashes on my right eye got thinner and I even developed a little bald patch too! It was only really noticeable to me, but I was worried it would get worse. A client of mine from a PR firm, who didn't know what was going on, ended up sending me a bottle of Plume to try out and I have to say, WOW! This stuff WORKS!!! Not only is my bald patch all but filled in, my lashes on both eyes are definitely thicker and longer. Could it just be the timing of the growth cycle with my right eye? Yup! But there is no denying the fact that the lashes on my left have changed for the better."

 

Sammie Colletta Kolk of Hullosam 

# of Years Using Green Beauty: 3

Favorite Beauty Discovery of 2016: Kypris Antioxidant Dew "This product literally restores vitality to my skin. Whenever I use it, I not only feel it hydrating my skin (making it glowy and happy) but it also soothes my sensitive, imbalanced skin. It has amazing ingredients like rose and reed extracts which are known for soothing and calming the complexion. The consistency of this moisturizer is light, creamy (almost milky) and has a serum–y texture. I absolutely love how hydrated and breathable my skin feels after I apply this product."
