Over a year ago, I developed bad stomach issues that eventually lead me on a journey to change the way I lived. I started doing a lot of research on how to properly eat and take care of my body from the inside out. The hubby and I now eat very healthy (raw, organic, all natural kind of healthy).Over the past year I have also been wanting to switch up a lot of the products I use on my skin because as we all know, everything we put onto our skin get absorbed in the body. “As much as 60% of topical skin-care products are absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream,” Says Dr. Nancy Lonsdorf, M.D. an lowa-based physician, “They should be consumed with the same prudence that we use to choose our breakfast cereal.” – April 2006 issue of Women’s Health Magazine. There are many toxic chemicals in cosmetic products that have been clinically proven to cause cancer, tumors, irritation and many different skin disorders. I have been slowly switching out many of my products from hair, to skincare, to makeup to all natural brands with natural ingredients that are good for the skin. One of the most recent brands I have come across and have been trying out is 100% Pure Color Cosmetics.
I heard about 100% Pure Color Cosmetics from my all-time favorite beauty guru, Cloudy Apples. One of my favorite things about 100% Pure color cosmetics is that they are the only cosmetics that are colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments; whereas, other companies color their cosmetics with synthetic dyes or minerals. “100% products are truly 100% Pure-no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.” I love knowing that when I apply their makeup to my skin that all the antioxidants and vitamins from the fruits are in the actual color. That means I am applying all the healthy nutrients of the fruits directly to my skin!
I have been testing out 4 of their products:
- 100% Pure Cosmetics Healthy Skin Foundation with Super Fruits
- 100% Pure Cosmetics Healthy Skin Flawless Skin Foundation Powder
- 100% Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Mascara
- 100 % Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss
100% Pure Cosmetics Healthy Skin Foundation with Super Fruits
Through the last year, I have tried my fair share of foundations that were marketed as all natural, organic, cruelty free, etc. and while some have worked decently, the majority of them were just awful. I must admit, I was a little skeptical about how well this foundation would work as it is only filled with fruit and natural ingredients but I have been determined to find an all natural good for your skin foundation so I went for it! After applying it, I was very surprised and happy with the amount of coverage it gave me without looking cakey. I have been testing this foundation for a while now and have tried applying it with just my fingers, several different brushes and the beauty blender. I like the look I get best when using the beauty blender. I also found it important to make sure your skin was well moisturized or else the foundation would stick to dry areas. My eye area tends to be dry and I noticed it sticking to the dry patches but other than that, I found the foundation to work fabulous! I love that this foundation does not irritate my skin in the slightest since it is filled with healthy ingredients.
100% Pure Cosmetics Healthy Skin Flawless Skin Foundation Powder
I love using this powder to set my foundation because it gives my skin a beautiful matte finish. It is to light of a coverage to cover my acne but works very well for me in conjunction with the liquid foundation. Its incredibly smooth and leaves my skin feeling baby soft. That may have something to do with the fact that it is an all natural formula full of anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants and skin purifying eucalyptus, soothing calendula, chamomile and rose, oil absorbing rice powder and flattering color from fruits and vegetables! A product full of natural ingredients that my sensitive skin is happy to wear!
100% Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Mascara
Finding a natural mascara that actually works has been a daunting task until now. I am very satisfied with using 100% Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Mascara for my everyday use. I love knowing that it is all natural and actually healthy for my lashes compared to other mascaras. I say everyday use because I think it gives a nice natural look without being to dramatic. It gives a bit of length and volume to my lashes but it is not drastic so I prefer to use other mascaras for special occasions. It is however very pigmented which I love! I would love to see this mascara with a different wand because I think it would truly enhance the performance of the mascara. I have thin lashes that are hardly visible without mascara so I like to apply a few coats to get my desired look but some mascaras are not easily buildable. I was able to build this mascara without issues and it lasted all throughout the day. Oh, and I must mention that this mascara smells heavenly with its berry scent (all natural berry scent of course)!
100 % Pure Cosmetics Fruit Pigmented Lip Gloss
This has to be one of my new favorite Lip glosses and I can’t wait to add more to my collection! I currently only own one, Pink Berry and love how pure the ingredients are. It is 100% natural and made with 83% vitamin E, which is a powerful anti-aging antioxidant. It leaves your lips full of moisture and is incredibly pigmented! Oh, and this has an incredible fruit scent as well.
I created a LookBook Post wearing all 4 products above. To view more pictures and information about this look see my Look Book :: 100% Pure Cosmetics
I HIGHLY recommend all of these products from 100% Pure.
