Peacock Republic

I recently discovered another awesome green beauty line called Peacock Republic and it has quickly become one of my favorites. I’m especially loving having this gem in my shower right now – their lemongrass love body wash. The scent is just perfect – invigorating in the morning yet calming in the evening and enjoyed by male and female noses alike. I also love their fragrant sugar scrubs and rich body lotions.

Bottom line: definitely add Peacock Republic to your must-try list of natural beauty companies!

Peacock Republic doesn’t stop at making luxurious, green body care products – for each bottle and bar sold, they donate a bar to those without basic necessities. And for all other products sold, they donate a portion of the profits to charities. Even more of a reason to give them a try (if you haven’t already).

You can purchase online or check out the list of boutiques that carry them across the U.S. here: AND starting next month Peacock Republic will be at Anthropologie and online at!

Detoxifying Body Wash

How about a body wash that not only cleanses your skin, but also claims to detoxify your entire body?! I’m talking about Collective Wellbeing’s Charcoal Body Wash. This sulfate-free concoction is definitely unlike anything I’ve tried before…It is very dark grey color (hello charcoal!) and has a very gooey, thick consistency.  I like the idea that a capful of this stuff contains tens of thousands of micro-sponges that work to remove impurities.  And the scent? It’s light and clean – specifically a mix of  juniper berries, lemongrass and sage. I would definitely recommend giving it a try! 


  • Active Charcoal: millions of super sponges that trap and soak up virtually all impurities that pass through them.
  • Zinc: fights acne-causing bacteria, helps skin heal, and lessens inflammation.
  • Juniper Berry (certified organic): has a tonic and cleansing effect on oily skin.
  • Sage (certified organic): astringent action on the skin and helps rebalance oiliness.
