5 Natural Lip Products for Your Green Beauty Routine
Here at The Essential Life, we talk a lot about living a green, natural & sustainable lifestyle. Switching away from products that are laden with destructive chemicals & opting for products & materials made with the goodness & abundance of nature is something we feel very passionately about. This is especially true when it comes to going green with your beauty routine.
Weeding out beauty products & cosmetics that are full of harmful & carcinogenic ingredients is especially important, not only for the environment, but for your health. When we choose cosmetics that contain chemicals, these chemicals make their way into our bodies by being absorbed by our skin. Over time this causes a number of ill-health effects & can actually damage your skin & leave you susceptible to premature ageing.
To help The Essential Life community make the swap & go green with their beauty routines, we've embarked on months of exhaustive research & testing to find the best natural & organic beauty products & cosmetics. We've found the best natural & organic cleansers, moisturisers, facial serums, acne treatments, face masks, foundations, lip colours, mascaras & deodorants to help your make the swap to a green beauty regimen. Stay tuned to The Essential Life, as we continue counting down the best beauty swaps to green up your beauty routine.

Our favourite thing about this product was how easy it was to apply. It's creamy texture made it simple for application with your finger. The coconut oil base makes Lip2Cheek super-moisturising & extremely blend-able, so you won't end up with rosy-coloured clown cheeks.

Vapour Siren Lipstick
Why We Love It: This lipstick provided a ton of coverage, just like the Kjaer Weis Lipstick, however Vapour's Siren Lipstick had a very thick texture which served to nourish & protect our lips. Vapour's Siren Lipstick also comes in a huge variety of colours, so anyone can find their perfect shade.
While some of The Essential Life's beauty experts found this lipstick a little bit too thick, most of us thought the thickness & moisturising properties of the lipstick were what made it so incredible. It loaded our lips with colour & drenched them in luxurious moisturisers.

RMS Beauty Lip Shine
Why We Love It: This lip colour was a favourite among The Essential Life beauty experts who preferred light, glossy colour. It's loaded with moringa oil which delivers a ton of nourishment & moisture, while providing sheer & shimmering colour.
