The Zoya Nail Polish Exchange is back! Once again, Zoya is helping you do a little spring cleaning with the return of the Earth Day Zoya Nail Polish Exchange* for 2013. Clean out your nail polish wardrobe and get rid of old nail polish that may not be BIG5FREE (Free of Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene, DBP and Camphor) and exchange it for a greener alternative - long lasting, award winning, healthy Zoya Nail Polish bottles! Now's the perfect time to make the switch to an eco-chic beauty routine! From April 19, 2013 - April 26, 2013 (11:59PM EST), exchange your old, unwanted nail color for toxin-free ZOYA Nail Polish for only $4 per bottle plus shipping and handling fees. Rest assured - ZOYA will properly dispose of your old polish.

Here's all you need to do!

1.  Go to and pick out the polishes you would like (excludes all Zoya PixieDust™ Collection shades) and add them to your cart. You must select at least 6 bottles and no more than 24 bottles of polish (Salon accounts minimum 12 maximum 48 bottles.)

3. Your order value will be adjusted to reflect a 50% discount (we use these funds to properly dispose of the old nail polish).

Once you get your order
Here's where the exchanging* happens...
1.     Ship back the equivalent number of bottles you received to the return address below (ie. If you ordered 6 bottles of Zoya – you would send us 6 NON-ZOYA polishes). Please check with your carrier on the proper way to ship nail polish.

Now onto 5 all natural beauty products I'm loving right now!

Josie Maran Argan Oil ($48) - I love this stuff! Its a staple for me and I use it abut 3-4 times a week before going to bed. And its 100% Natural!

Lavanila Healthy Deodorant ($18) - I'm a huge fan of Lavanila's Healthy Deodorants! They recently launched a Fresh Lemon Vanilla and I absolutely love it. Most Lavanila fragrances have a strong hint of vanilla and this one is more of a zesty, fresh lemon scent that is formulated without parabens, aluminum salts, sulfates, petrochemicals and all the nasties. I wish it came in a smaller size though!

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm ($6.99) - This is one of my favorite drugstore lip products - I almost, always have one in my bag! Glossy shine, super moisturizing and a lovely hint of color with an amazing ingredients list!

Orico Little Love Body Wash ($14) - Orico is a brand fairly new to me. The Little Love Body Wash is a gentle soothing body wash formulated for babies and adults. It is sulfate-free and  99% of the total ingredients are of natural origin, 20% of the total ingredients are from organic farming. It doesn't foam up so much for a body wash and it is a tad pricey, but if you are looking for a gentle, all natural body wash, this is worth checking out. I love it!

Melvita Eau Floral de Rose Fresh Micellar Water ($24)  - Melvita is another all natural brand I really like. Their products are hard to get hold of, but they have some really luxurious body & skincare. The 
Eau Floral de Rose Fresh Micellar Water micellar water is something I've been reaching out to remove makeup when I don't have too much on. It does struggle a bit with waterproof eye makeup though. But, It is gentle enough for everyday use, perfectly suited for dehydrated skin and smells divine!

What are some of your recent all natural beauty product faves?
