Celebrate St. Patrick's Day With These 17 Green Beauty Products
the other type of green
You know that it's St. Patrick's Day when all you can see is green, and all you can smell is Guinness. Aside from being a color, and perhaps a fuzzy state of mind after too many of those aforementioned Irish stouts, there are plenty of other things that are green out there that you can indulge in on this Irish holiday. No, we're not talking about money or marijuana—we mean things that are eco-friendly. (Though technically speaking, weed is eco-friendly.)
Lately, though, we've been noticing that more beauty brands are switching over to all-natural and "green" ingredients. Today must be your lucky day because instead of giving you a list of products that are literally green, we are providing you with a bunch of organic options instead. Seventeen to be exact, as a tribute to the patron saint himself, of course. Talk about a pot of gold.
Some of the items are vegan while others are GMO-free. What's not included? Chemicals, preservatives, and alcohol—so you'll have to go to your local bar for that fix. Shop our green picks in the gallery, below.
