Not long ago, “green” or “eco” beauty products had a somewhat niche appeal – but, nowadays, it seems it’s hard to find one woman ?out there who?hasn’t swapped at least one aspect of her routine for its more natural counterpart.

It’s never been easier to go green and look good at the same time and below are five products that will help you do just that – all of the below brands are proudly cruelty-free, eco-friendly and deserve a place in your beauty bag.
