No More Dirty Looks


Founded in 2010 by co-authors Siobhan and Alexandra, No More Dirty Looks is one of our favorite sites for green beauty. With a strong reader community, this is the place to turn to when you need recommendations. If you’re looking for a handy guide for making the switch to clean cosmetics, you’re in luck - they've even written a book! @nodirtylooks



Sharing his knowledge and experience from years as an osteopathic physician, Dr Mercola is the best-selling author of one of the biggest health sites around. His approach is prevention, not just cure and offers practical health solutions, without the hype. With videos on everything from aging to weight management, it’s no wonder the Huffington Post awarded him the top Ultimate Wellness Game Changer award! @mercola

Organic Beauty Talk


Organic Beauty Talk is a leading and well run beauty blog with the aim of seeking quality beauty products that are fair in price. Founder Brandie really encourages readers to learn about ingredients to avoid and regularly reviews new organic and natural products. She also created Thoughtfully, a quarterly magazine, which inspires you to ‘Live passionately, beautifully and thoughtfully every day’. @organicbeautytk



This is more than a beauty blog. MindBodyGreen is an all-round wellness blog, tackling topics from fitness and food to meditation and make up. We love their recipes for organic smoothies and their Pinterest page is one of our all-time favorites! @mindbodygreen

Short Small Sweet


Ru made the switch to natural beauty products after moving to the US from Singapore (after a few years in Japan!) and discovering the overwhelming number of toxic ingredients in cosmetics. In her post ‘A Year Of Green Beauty’, she talks about the five things she learned in the first year of her green journey. @shortsmallsweet

Naturalla Beauty


In founder Caitie’s own words, ‘Naturalla Beauty was born out of the belief that natural and non-toxic products should be accessible to everyone’ and we completely agree! Helping you to find the best in green beauty, Caitie not only reviews skin-, hair-, makeup- and body-products, but shares some great DIY beauty recipes as well! @naturallabeauty

Geeky Posh


Jenny’s blog is a firm favorite with the Odylique US team. Not only is she a beauty addict and a cat mommy (check out her two gorgeous kitties Shelly and Cooper on Instagram – adorable!), this smart cookie is also a web designer! Unsurprisingly, this charming website is beautiful, and with posts of crafts, home décor, beauty, fashion and much more, we keep getting drawn back in! @geekyposhe

The Fig's Heart


‘Life is Sweet!’ – the phrase used by Lauren on the home page of The Fig’s Heart, and this is sums up how you feel after reading the blog perfectly. With a clean site design, gorgeous photography and engaging posts, this is an all-round feel-good site! @laurenburkitt

Q by Equinox


Q by Equinox is a must-read. Although they represent a gym, the blog is so much more than fitness. Celebrity playlists, grooming tips, sleep advice… this site is full of great content, as well as fascinating fitness videos of course! Sign up for their weekly newsletter to get tips and tricks delivered straight to your inbox. @QbyEQX

Fashionable Heart


Wendy from Fashionable Heart is one of our favorite bloggers. A South Carolina girl now living in Canada, she writes about beauty, fashion and lifestyle in a clear and fun way; she’s the kind of lady you’d want to take shopping with you! Her Instagram feed is pretty products, lifestyle posts and pictures of her sweet little terrier, Indy. @fashionblogger

Life in Blush


Life in Blush is a beauty, health and fashion blog run by Sonja, a green goddess from Toronto, Canada. With a mixture of short, simple posts and chatty talks (often studded with hilarious GIFS!), her blog brings you natural beauty knowledge with a smile! @lifeinblush

Barefoot Blonde


We want Amber’s life! Living in New York City, 25 year old Amber blogs about beauty, fashion and fitness. Her style is on point and her family are adorable. She’s recently given birth to gorgeous baby Rosie, who joins son Atticus, husband David and Golden Retriever Chauncey in some of the prettiest blog photos we’ve ever seen! @amberlfillerup

The Green Product Junkie


Obsessed with all things organic and non-toxic, Katie is the woman you need if you’re looking for green alternatives. As well as beauty, she also has a dedicated section on her blog for eco-friendly home wear. In November, she created her first Youtube video so we look forward to seeing more in the future! @GreenProdJunkie

Plein Vanity


Kasey from Plein Vanity is all about promoting sustainable solutions and is passionate about the environment - she even has a degree in Environmental Studies! We love her Beauty Chat series, where she interviews some of the top people in the beauty industry. @pleinvanity



The voice behind beauty4free2u Sissi is originally from Germany and currently resides in sunny Florida with her family. She made the switch to cruelty-free cosmetics in 2014 and has embraced the animal-lover lifestyle ever since. As well as multiple lists of cruelty-free brands, she’s also created an app to help you find the brands while you’re out shopping! @Beauty4Free2U

Maison Pur


Maison Pur was started after Molly became fed up of toxic ingredients in everything. Easy to navigate, this clean blog makes it really simple to find exactly what you’re looking for, whether that’s cosmetics reviews, pure home solutions or general clean living. We particularly like her posts on non-toxic products for children. @maisonpur

Eighth + Wild


Eighth + Wild is not your regular beauty blog; it specialises in products that are good for your body, mind and soul. Tina shares her knowledge and wisdom of natural healing, and her blog is a destination for calming and wellness. @EIGHTHandWILD

Best Day Blogger


Maria has been our biggest supporter since Odylique launched in North America last year. We’ve loved watching her grow as a blogger over the year and in the last few months she has also started making vlogs! She’s a keen photography fan and this shows in her creative product and Instagram pics. @Bestdayblogger

The Choosy Chick


Green couple Margot and Joe are the force behind The Choosy Chick, a one-stop-shop for non-toxic products. They created their own standard to rate ingredients and beauty products, which they stock in their online shop. This site is packed with information on organic certifications, how to reduce toxins at home and a whole separate blog page with articles from product reviews to discussions. @thechoosychick

Let's Talk About Green


Let’s Talk About Green is a natural beauty blog from Canadian blogger Julie. She reviews a mix of vegan, cruelty-free, organic and environmentally-friendly products in fun but informative summaries. We love that she reviews products in both English and French – great for readers in the French part of Canada! @dreamlivemaui

Ivory Avenue


Natalie of Ivory Avenue ‘writes about beauty in order to keep myself inspired.’ Conquering both physical and mental health problems, Natalie writes an honest and positive blog. Her ‘A-Z Review Directory’ is a really handy feature and her photography is truly lovely! @natalieivory

The Hermes Hippie


If you want detail, this is the blog you want. Lola’s reviews are thorough and comprehensive, addressing every part of a product – packaging, ingredients, brand background… very in-depth! Perfect if want to find out everything about a certain product before you buy! @thehermeshippie

Genuine Glow


An Italian beauty now studying in Florida, Lilly’s blog is a favorite with the Odylique ladies. We love the idea of feature posts on her site (including Manicure Mondays and Intelligent Ingredients) and her Instagram is filled with quotes that provide us with a chuckle in the office! @GenuineGlow

Cult of Pretty


Ann from Cult of Pretty has been working in the beauty industry for over 10 years and as a result, she looks straight past hype when it comes to new beauty products. She searches high and low, from drugstore to department store, to search for products with great ingredients and great results. Learn about both cult classics and top trends while browsing some of the amazingly creative photographs! @cultofpretty

The Salt Life Wife


Julie is one of those people that you want as your friend. Happily living in Florida with her husband, she blogs about makeup, beauty and living the ‘salt life’! Her posts are funny and detailed, and by using adjectives and anecdotes in her posts, she conveys exactly what she means in her posts. @TheSaltLifeWife

The Natural Junkie


Jules encourages her readers to live a ‘beautiful and toxic free life’ on her blog, The Natural Junkie. She reviews all kinds of green lifestyle products, such as books, tea, eco-friendly workout gear and of course, natural beauty products!

As her blog name suggests, Stephanie is an old-fashioned Southern debutante, as well as a math whizz and blogging babe.

Her posts are full of polished fashion photos and her travel posts give us a serious case of wanderlust! @stephanieziajka

Makeup by Mary B


Mary aims to bring her readers natural products with the safest ingredients possible. As a new med student, her blog might be taking a bit of a back seat for the moment, but we hope to see more of her honest and straight-to-the-point posts in the new year! @Mary_B333
