In your quest for green beauty, have you tried SANTE? The parent company, Logona comes to us from Europe and dates back to the 1970’s. I love this:
“Our products utilize the highest quality, natural raw materials, such as: premium botanical oils, herbal extracts and essential oils derived from organic agriculture and wild-crafting.”
I am completely in love with the clean, green products I tried from SANTE and Logona. Why use any toxic products when there are so many lovely clean ones ?
SANTE offers many items but I particularly loved the smooth lip pencils and creamy lipstick. I use the lipstick often, its perfect in every way being both smooth and long lasting with excellent pigmentation.
The Volume Sensation mascara gives fabulous, buildable volume thanks to a plush brush. I tried the powdered rouge too- this has a silky texture and goes on well using a large brush.
Eyes get the royal treatment with eye shadows containing ingredients like jojoba oil and essential oils. The eyeliners offer the pencil on one side, a spongy tip on the other for smudging. Start off any eye look with the Eye shadow base, which help keep eye shadow in place all day. Its a neutral color that you can wear alone, or add color.
One of my favorites was an eyebrow pencil from SANTE, it has a brush on one end and the pencil on the other to really smooth and shape the brows.
I don’t leave home with a dab of powder all over my face, the SANTE compact uses very finely milled pigments and lightly mattifies oily skin.
I want to mention the sleek packaging- the rouge, compact, eye shadows are housed in a kind of frosted glass that is simple but glamorous.
Now I want to switch gears and talk about Logona which was first introduced years before SANTE.
Logona’s Rouge Duo is smooth and silky, nicely pigmented and easy to build the color depending on how flushed you want your cheeks. The Eye shadow Trio has a similar consistency, easy to blend and long wearing with great pigmentation. The Double Eyeliner Pencil offers two colors- use both at once, layer them up, use them separately, whatever you want to do! I like the colors and the fact you can gently smudge them to get more of a smokey look.
I loved the lip pencils- I had all but given up on trying to find a great lip pencil that was long lasting and smooth. Previously I had been using a high end, popular lip pencil from a brand that is less than clean, in fact- I am embarrassed to admit how this was my go-to pencil before discovering Logona.
Another terrific product is the Tinted Day Cream Bio Rose and Aloe. Made with mineral pigments and organic botanicals, this adds color and treats skin by nourishing it thanks to almond oil, jojoba, damascus rose, aloe and pomegranate. If your goal is to add just a bit of natural color while nourishing the skin, this is for you.
I love a good liquid liner provided I have the time to slowly apply it properly…and Logona offers a nice one that doesn’t bother my sensitive eyes. It takes a little time to get the application down, take your time and don’t rush it!
I highly recommend you check out SANTE and Logona, I am all about clean beauty products, especially color cosmetics! And both brands offer much, much more than what I wrote about here so be sure to take the time to go through both sites and peruse the various products. You are sure to find something you like!
