Within the last few months, I’ve tried a lot of clean beauty products, many of them almost completely non toxic (Jane Iredale, Pur Minerals and Mineral Fusion as of lately). I have painstakingly researched ingredients on the Skin Deep website to double and triple check that my favorite products did not contain highly hazardous chemicals (click here for the site). There are chemicals in everything- some not so bad, some terrible and others you want to stay far away from. It all boils down to how clean you want to be.
Beauty purists listen up! You will want to try these: Alima Pure, 100% Pure, Ava Anderson mascara and a product that I use daily, RMS unCoverup. Those of you who won’t touch a toxin will rejoice as these are safe and clean and free from synthetics, waxes, petroleum products, parabens, fillers, unnatural fragrance.
I’ve mentioned Ava Anderson mascara before so I won’t go on and on but this is a winner. The formula is pure, gentle, non irritating and safe for those with sensitive eyes. The look is natural with soft lashes and this mascara washes off easily. I work with Ava Anderson and if you want to order the mascara, you can buy it here.
Another product I’ve mentioned is RMS unCoverup. This is gentle and safe and it works so well. This cover up/concealer melts into skin. I use it around my eyes and on any discoloration (I thank my teenage self for laying in the sun. Nice dark spots!).
New to me is Alima Pure. And this brand is really pure! I tried eye shadows and foundation from this brand. I really like the finely milled smooth texture of the Satin Matte Foundation which is a loose mineral powder. With 61 shades you are bound to find your exact match! I just dip a brush in the pot and gently do a dab-swirl motion over my face. I love how flawless my skin looks with this.
The Eyeshadows are richly pigmented, I found that a little goes a long way and the color lasts all day. Check out the ingredients list: Ingredients: Mica (CI 77019). May contain: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Ultramarines (CI 77007). Can’t get more simple or pure than that!
Go here for more pure goodness. I have my eye on a blush and eyeliner!
I have used products from 100% Pure before and I’ve never been disappointed. I just tested the Foundation and its another winner! This full coverage foundation is “colored from the pigments of fruits and vegetables rather than being colored from minerals or synthetic dyes.” You won’t believe your eyes! This natural, pure foundation gives great coverage that looks natural. I add a bit of RMS UnPowder over the top to keep my skin from getting a little greasy later in the day.
Also from 100% Pure is the Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss. First of all, it smells incredible. Second, its a very natural shiny look. And its GLUTEN-FREE! Thats great news for those who need to stay away from gluten. The ingredients include Vitamin E from organic rice bran and beautiful colors from fruit pigments. 100% Pure is wonderful, pure brand that I highly recommend. Go here for more!
