In the name of detoxing life and creating vibrance and a health-supporting environment that helps you to glow, the makeup bag is a key place to look to make a change.
About seven years ago I liked to roll my eyes a bit at the statistics of makeup chemicals and their toxicity (I mean, I get that body lotion gets absorbed on your whole body, but what’s the harm of a little concealer or eyeliner, right?)… It felt a bit too intense.
Would I have to give up my favorite mascara?! What about lipgloss? Where do we draw the line?!
Making a natural transition in the past six years has become much easier and mush-embraced due in part to articles like THESE that shed light on the bacteria, the true toxic loads and the very sensitive places (like our eyes) that makeup is applied…
It’s why The Beautiful part of the blog was born, why Chantal Moore has become my balanced beauty salvation, and why it’s well worth pushing through resistance and experimenting: I’ve had zero dry eyes, zero skin irritations, zero eye infections and total radiance since making the switch. Every one of these things was a problem… and so… it’s well worth it to find your own Holy Grail natural products.
…like this mascara from Pur Cosmetics. Today’s Balanced Beauty pick of the day!
“As you can guess, I am always on the hunt for high performance, natural, toxin free skin care and cosmetics. Particularly, mascara. It’s a makeup staple I am constantly asked about. These days, more and more people want high performance natural cosmetics. The mascara I am loving right now is Pur Volume Vixen Mascara. It’s paraben free, packed with Keratin and delivers voluminous, lush, full lashes without clumps. The wand design insures that every lash is saturated and the nourishing, conditioning, formula stays in place all day. Learn more about Pur Cosmetics Volume Vixen Mascara HERE. ”
