A while back I posted about my quest for less toxic cosmetics and skin care. I think at the time I mentioned that my skin care routine now consists of two products -- Dr. Bronner's baby soap and rosewater. I did buy a bottle of Burt's Bees Rosewater Toner with glycerin the other day and started using it instead of the bottle of plain rosewater I was using. No particular reason -- and it works the same. I don't think I will ever vary from this routine because it is just so easy and very
I have been using the Rejuva line of mineral makeup for a few months now and I have to say I love it. Well, not all of it. I love the foundation and the blush is what I have been looking for all my life! I don't see myself changing either of those any time soon. I don't care for the eyeliner pencil I bought as it isn't soft and doesn't go on well on my old, creapy eyelids. The mascara isn't what I thought it would be either. It goes on well and doesn't clump but it tends to smudge. I will finish the tube but I don't know that I will re-order.
Looking at other sources for cosmetics I ran across a company called 100% Pure Cosmetics. I ordered a lipstick. I don't care for it but it came in a lovely little case.
I think part of it is that I just don't like lipstick so for now I am using Burt's Bees Replenishing tinted balm. I don't think Burt's Bees is so pure but for now it is the best I can do for lippies. I digress. The lipstick came with three little samples of other 100% Pure products and I absolutely love them. One is a coffee bean eye cream,
one is a coconut body cream
and the other is a super fruit anti-aging cream. I just tried the super fruit cream this evening and so far I like it but I love the other two -- so much that I placed an order for full sized containers of the products. I might add the super fruit cream after a couple of days of trying the sample. I am also going to give their eye shadows a closer look.
So, that is where I stand on the less toxic cosmetics. I have had no desire to search for new foundation or blush and the little containers are so cute! I would recommend for sure! I will give another review on the 100% Pure skin care products after I have a chance to use them more.
