Phew! Now that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, let’s get back to business!
I’m 17 weeks pregnant (just in case anyone cares!) and I’ve made a huge change in my beauty routine in the past few months. I’ve switched to all natural makeup, thanks in part to 100% Pure Cosmetic’s all natural, organic, vegan beauty products.
I recently read several articles about the horrendous and toxic ingredients in mascara. Since mascara is something I wear EVERY DAY I figured it was an important thing to make sure what I was using had helpful ingredients instead of potentially harmful ones. I was pretty addicted to my Covergirl Lashblast Mascara, I must admit, so making the switch to all natural mascara took some getting used to.
The first thing I noticed about 100% Pure’s Fruit Pigmented Mascara was that the container is absolutely darling and it smelled WONDERFUL. I mean, I love putting this stuff on just so I can smell it. Seriously. No chemical scent, just a light, fruity-floral fragrance. I wear “Black Tea” every day now. My lashes don’t look like stunning falsies, but for everyday use this stuff is perfect. Best of all, it washes off easily without harsh makeup removers. It doesn’t dry and get flaky either. It stays on well through out the entire day and doesn’t run or give me raccoon eyes unless I go to bed with it on. But seriously, the only mascara that won’t rub off while you are sleeping is some pretty intense waterproof stuff anyway.
I also replaced my regular foundation with Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer and I’ve been using Fruit Pigmented Eye Shadow as well. I love the tinted moisturizer but for some reason eyeshadow just DOES NOT stay put on my eye lids without Urban Decay Potion Primer. Even if I powder my eyelids, don’t put on eye cream or moisturizer, no matter what I try, I just can’t get eyeshadow to stay PUT. This wonderful eyeshadow is no exception… It works wonderful and looks gorgeous as long as I put on Primer Potion first. If I don’t, it’s no where to be seen within an hour.
Lastly, I decided I wanted to eliminate SLS and other chemicals from my hair care routine. Last time I was pregnant, I actually made my own shampoo. I just don’t have time for that now! So I switched to Yuzu and Pomelo Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner. OH. MY. GOD. It smells sooooo gooooood. Course I love anything that smells like grapefruit and I recently realized about 50% of the products in my bathroom, are grapefruit scented. I guess “Pomelo” smells just like grapefruit because I’m in love with this shampoo and conditioner. Plus it makes my hair really silky and soft. I’m hooked. I don’t think I will be switching back to my regular shampoo and conditioners after baby arrives in May.
Overall, I highly recommend 100% Pure Cosmetics if you are looking for a more natural alternative to drugstore makeup.
My thoughts and opinions are my own, regardless of monetary compensation.
My opinion is that 100% Pure Products are awesome.
