Reader Poll: What Was Your Favorite Clean Beauty Discovery of 2015?
We’re just about a month into 2016, and my head is already spinning with excitement over the new product releases we’re expecting (and already seeing) this year from some of the most innovative brands in clean beauty. Last January we did a little check in with this fun reader poll and got a huge response, so tell us…
What did you discover in 2015 that changed your routine or lifestyle for the better? If not a favorite product, how about a favorite DIY, resource or beauty tool you ran across?
At the time of our last poll, we predicted 2015 would be the biggest year yet for clean beauty, and indeed we saw some serious growth in terms of consumer choice and awareness about the importance of ingredient safety and the beauty of using pure botanicals in skincare. Pivotal changes took place in the retail landscape: clean beauty brands were picked up by corporate giants like Target and Barney’s, lifestyle brands like GOOP and Anthropologie stocked more natural products than ever and clean beauty boutiques sprouted up online and IRL, too. The last mainstream magazine I flipped through highlighted beauty editor favorites from brands like One Love Organics and W3LL PEOPLE, to name a few, and the surge in green beauty bloggers alone (have you noticed?) marks an increased interest in our favorite topic. The number of people paying attention to this discussion is growing quickly, and 2016 feels full of momentum. So before we get too deep into the new year, let’s reminisce about the what we learned and loved in 2015.
