Our 5 Favourite Green Beauty Dupes

It’s been Go Green Week at universities across the UK. Did you do anything to “Go Green”? More and more people are opting to make the switch to a greener, cleaner natural and organic beauty regime - are you? 

As more brands emerge and the quality of natural and organic beauty products improves, we are coming across more and more natural and organic dupes of mainstream beauty products. Have you found any natural dupes out for yourself? We’d love to hear your faves! Here are our best natural beauty dupes we have discovered so far.

If you LOVE Urban Decay’s Naked Smoky Palette……

...switch to Lily Lolo’s Smoke & Mirrors Palette -  a limited-edition Lily Lolo Smoke & Mirrors Eye Palette 8 high-pigment, fine-textured shimmering and matte shadows make building and blending a show-stopping, dramatic eye easy. The softer shades are great for day wear. As well as mineral pigment, these eyeshadows contain some fabulous oils, such as argan, jojoba and pomegranate seed oil, and sodium hyaluronate.

If you LOVE St Ive’s Apricot Face Scrub…….

...switch to JASON Brightening Apricot Scrubble - a naturally gentle, soap-free foaming scrub to polish away impurities, oil and makeup for a clean, comfortable feel. Brightening Apricot Oil and triple refined Walnut Powder gently wash away dead skin cells, revealing a smooth, glowing complexion. Naturally no microbeads, and a delicious natural apricot fragrance.

If you LOVE BioOil…….

...switch to Pai Rosehip BioRegenerate Facial Oil - unique in using concentrated fruit hip oil, with twice the regenerative sterols and five times the caretonoids of seed oil. Rich in concentrated Trans-Retinoic Acid, an essential fuel for the skin's natural repair function.

Rosehip is the ultimate skin multi-tasker. With regular use, it conditions the skin, improving skin firmness and elasticity. Although it says face on the bottle, we’ve also used it to good effect to treat scarring on the skin on other parts of the body.

IF you LOVE Palmer’s Cocoa Body Butter………

...switch to Burt’s Bees Richly Replenishing Cocoa Butter Body Lotion - indulge your skin with softening Cocoa and Cupuaçu Butters and nourishing botanical moisturizers like Sunflower and Olive Oils.
