American Eagle Goes Green with aerie Botanicals

Skin products with an eco-friendly focus? Yes please! We all do our best to be as gentle to the environment as possible, but what about ourselves? American Eagle Outfitters’ lounge and intimate wear line, aerie, has launched aerie Botanicals, a line of natural body care for all of us interested in keeping our world and bodies as healthy and close to nature intended as possible — minus the hefty price tag.

The 94% natural body care line features NatureActives Complex, a blend of vitamins and antioxidants boasting a natural path to healthier skin. Offered in four yummy scents perfect for us active spa girls, aerie Botanicals contains zero harsh chemicals and no animal by-products. The products are not tested on animals and the recyclable packaging features a simple YES and NO labeling for us green gals who look at the ingredient list.

The aerie Botanicals line covers everything you need for a spa time-out at home: healing hand cream, body butter, body lotion, creamy body wash, body scrub and a fragrance mist.

If there was a fancy word for a lotion connoisseur, I would be that girl. I love to hydrate my skin as often as possible and slab my favorite lotion on every time I get out of the shower. Not only does the creamy body scrub do an awesome job of banishing dry skin and leaving it silky and smooth, but the body lotion is the perfect way to top it off and makes your legs shiny and sleek before you slip into your cute sundress. Each and every product will leave you super soft and smooth and has the power to hydrate even an Arizona girl’s skin all day long without leaving you feeling greasy — and that’s really saying something! Choose from Coconut + Vanilla Bean, Fresh Citrus + Papaya, Apple Blossom + Cucumber and Violet Leaf + Lychee scents to soften, nourish, rejuvenate and protect your skin. I tried the Violet Leaf + Lychee scent, which has a nice balance of floral and fresh aromas.
