My Search For All Natural Beauty Products

First off let me tell you that this is NOT a paid ad. I've been on a mission to find some beauty products that are more on the natural side, or even! For years I've wondered what is in my make-up and if it's doing more damage than good to my skin?? I was sent some Beauty Counter samples of by Heather HERE. I had been wanting to try for awhile but you know how life goes.... too many things to do, not enough time in the day. After trying some of these products, I WILL be purchasing some products. The fact that there are no scary ingredients in them is enough by itself for me to buy some.

Here is what I tried and my thoughts on them........ (click on names of products to view)
I'm going to start with the lip glosses because they are my favorite! I tried Fig (which is what I am wearing in the photo above) Buff and Ruby. I tend to wear plums or nudes so Buff and Fig were the ones I used until they were gone. They felt dewy and nourishing on my lips. They have a nice gloss to them too.

Next, I tried the Dew Skin which is like a tinted moisturizer. This worked as well as the ones that I currently use from Sephora or Ulta. It is very light with not much coverage, but they add a little color and vibrance to my face. With the word Dew in the name, I knew it would be a favorite of mine. I like this for an every day wear or underneath a foundation for a fuller make-up day. I ended up using a couple shades darker than I thought I would it is hard to tell what shade you should pick. I would ask a rep for some samples or use their "Find Your Shade" link.

The Tint Skin Complexion Coverage Foundation was equally good. It was thicker, creamier and the coverage was better than the skin dew. However, it isn't a heavy or matte finish. The smell of all of these products are very distinct. It doesn't smell of perfume (which it shouldn't) but more of a natural scent. Something I had to get used to at first but now, I don't even notice it. I was so used to the scent of the garbage products.
The Lustro Balancing Face Oil.....Winner!!!!! This oil made my face dewy, radiant and kept moisture in all day. Just how I like it.  I used make-up over it and it blended nicely. Although one day, I used just the oil and it made my skin not so pasty and dry looking. (See below) I also tried the AM and PM rejuvenating creams and the eye cream, but it's a little early to tell if they have significant results. They do moisturize and don't seem to cause breakouts which I am prone to. The Charcoal mask was better than the one I bought at Ulta. The peppermint smell is really nice too. I found that I loved the smell of my face after I was done with this mask. I dried quickly and after I rinsed, my pores seemed less full for sure. I even used this on my chest that was breaking out after all the hormone changes from weaning. I have noticed a difference on my body skin from it. At first I thought my pores looked bigger, but then I realized that they were just free from junk in them. After my face dried and cooled off, my pores shrunk up and my overall skin tone was more even.
All in all, I was impressed that none of the products gave me a breakout or any kind of reaction. I often have to test products because my skin is somewhat sensitive. I'm sure that has to do with some of the harsh ingredients in a lot of the products. Again, the fact that there is no regulation of make-up, which is absorbs everything, is something to think about. I've been on a quest to find some natural make-up and products and I think that I've found some. I spotted some of their products in Target yesterday which was exciting too! I will be purchasing more! If you want to try some of these products or purchase some of the ones I tried.....go HERE.
