What is in your skincare and makeup products?
I wasn’t always aware of what I was putting on my face until about 7 years ago when I was pregnant with my first baby. My doctor advised me to stop using my acne wash with salicylic acid because of concerns that it might harm the baby. I began to realize that there was a lot more than salicylic acid to be concerned over with skincare/ beauty products. I found a website called EWG’s Skin Deep that shows you every ingredient in most of the common skincare/ makeup products and the damage they have the potential to do in the long run.
I made a commitment from that point on to pay attention to what I was putting onto my skin and what I use to wash it with (as well as the whole family)!!! I also have a mild form of Rosacea, so I choose my skincare products wisely because the wrong chemicals can cause a flair up.
Recently, I noticed some strange ingredients in the foundation that I normally use. I looked it up on skin deep and I was not too happy with what I found out! So I went to Target to look for some more natural and organic beauty products. While there, I noticed that Physician’s Formula has 100% natural bronzers and tinted moisterizer! If you are not familiar with products claiming to be natural… 100% is very hard to find. I knew that I had to try these out!
You can see the rest of my shopping trip on google plus!
I ended up getting some Burt’s Bees Deep Cleansing Cream Face Wash, Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer and Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Bronzer.
Right after I left Target I had to run home, get the kids and take them over to a friend’s house. I couldn’t wait to try out the products so I borrowed her bathroom to try them out!
The Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Tinted Moisturizer was very smooth. It had a slight tint and looked natural. I was very impressed with how my face looked right after I put it on. I wasn’t expecting much from just a tint.
Then I tried the Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Bronzer. I have to be careful of what I put on my face. I do have a mild form of Rosacea so anything with even a hint of red shows up as bright pink on me. I love this bronzer! It really looked natural for my face.
It was easy to put on, but next time I think I will use a bigger brush. Want to see what happens when you put on powders?
I have cropped this pic to show the details. Look at all those little particles flying through the air!!! I am glad that this is all natural and organic!!! I can rest assure that what I am breathing is okay to breathe!
Since I was feeling pretty good about my new makeup I let hubby take some pics of me outside. I really like the way this one turned out. I was feeling a little model-ish… but then…
I was faced with the fact that I live in OK! It is crazy windy here!!!
What are your favorite natural beauty supplies? I want to know what you like to use!!!
