Take look at our picks for green products that will keep you dancing an Irish jig all throughout your day.
Start your day with a squeaky clean face. Use a refreshing cleanser formulated with antioxidant rich green tea, like this Green Tea Bubble Cleansing Foam from Korean brand Skin Food. Find it at U.S. retailer Soko Glam for $16.00.
Let’s keep going with the green tea goodness and follow up with a nourishing face cream. This one from Korean brand Innisfree is for combination skin and is made from green tea leaves harvested in South Korea’s volcanic Jeju island (fancy!). Get the Green Tea Balancing Cream from Hong Kong’s popular beauty site BonjourHK for only HK$103.00.
Applying makeup is more fun when you have the right tools. Especially when you get them at a steal. Try this 24-piece green brush set from China’s LightInTheBox.com. For a limited time, it’s half off for only $14.95!
Want your eyes to do the talking? Add a pop of color with this mascara from Polish brand Inglot. It’s highly pigmented, and the brush is designed to separate your lashes. Get it from U.S. beauty site Beautylish for $13.00.
Want to go subtle? Try something wearable for everyday with this soft green eyeshadow from German organic makeup line Lavera. The mineral eyeshadow blends two metallic colors into one that can be used dry for a subtle shimmer or wet for a more pigmented application. Get it on their website for $24.00.
If you want the focus to be on your lipstick, choose this edgy option from Kat Von D’s popular makeup line available at Sephora. These lipsticks are made with vitamins A, C and E and an antioxidant complex to keep your lips soft. Get it for $21.00.
After a day of celebrating your honorary Irish pride, it’s time to take off your makeup! Use wipes like these from the popular U.S. brand Yes To. These are made with cucumbers and aloe vera to soothe your skin and get your face clean fast. Get it at the American retailer Drugstore.com for $4.49.
If you had a particularly long day/night of partying, use a clay mask to detoxify your pores and ease into relaxation. This option uses just French green clay, but should be mixed with other ingredients for efficacy. Depending on your skin type, combine with water and either yogurt, egg, lemon juice or avocado. Get the Green Clay Mask Powder for $10.34 on Amazon.
Use Our Consolidation Service for Shipping
If you’re buying multiple items from different stores, use our consolidation feature to save on shipping. One way carriers determine shipping costs is by charging each package a minimum fee based on its weight. This can get expensive when you’re shipping lots of packages. Borderlinx eliminates the increased cost by virtually combining packages into a single tracking number so our carriers charge the minimum fee only once.
To use our consolidation service, we offer 30 days of free storage at our warehouse facilities. This gives you more time to shop and allows you to wait until all your packages have been delivered to our hubs. Read more about Borderlinx’s consolidation service here.
