Worth Sharing : Natural foundation roundup

via : http://kriscarr.com/blog-video/best-natural-foundation

So this is missing my favorite foundations again but it’s still worth sharing for those of you looking for some natural healthy options. (My favorite foundations are W3ll People Narcissist and Everyday Minerals jojoba.)


Worth Sharing: Lipstick / Lipgloss smackdown
What’s Non-Toxic, Cruelty-Free & Works?

So I think they left off lip glosses (the kind with a tube and wand) and I’m hoping they’ll come back and do that as a roundup.

Birchbox unboxing December 2014

Birchbox unboxing December 2014 • Clothingcult.com • including EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database reports

ewg skindeep cosmetics database score 3Vasanti Kajal Extreme Intense Eye Pencil in rose gold – die dimethicone die! Why must you make my face break out? And yes this is an eyeliner and my eyes don’t break out but I can smear or the process of taking makeup off … yeah. Annoying. Because otherwise this isn’t that unhealthy and the color is gorgeous. It’s a 3 with the EWG Skin Deep Cosmetics Database.

ewg skindeep cosmetics database score 2Mirenesse iCurl Secret Weapon 24 Hour Mascara – more cones … and it’s not waterproof but it’s healthy. It ranks a 2 with the cosmetics database. And good reviews so you might want to try this.
ewg skindeep cosmetics database score 3JUARA Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask – 3 for 3 for me here with dimethicone again and my own personal problems with that. Not too bad on the rest though. This is a 3 with the cosmetics database. 3 for 3 is a 3! Hehe … SMH… nevermind.
ewg skindeep cosmetics database score 4W3LL PEOPLE Bio Brightener Stick – I believe I chose this one because of the healthy ingredients. It gets knocked down a notch unnecessarily for “unspecified oils” because of the essential oil blend. Granted it annoys me a little to not have a full list for allergy related reasons but it’s not enough to worry me with this brand. This ranks a surprising 4 with the cosmetics database. This is one of those “take it with a grain of salt and review the full report” situations in my opinion though.

ewg-skindeep-cosmetics-database-score-unknownDavines Replumping Shampoo & Conditioner – So the ingredient list on Birchbox for both is not accurate. There’s WAY more than “Essential petit grain oil, plum phytoceutical, gentle surfactants” in each of these. And I just don’t have the patience at the moment to type out the ingredient list for both of these at the moment. The bad: fragrance. The good: no cones, no parabens and nothing else that looks too bad. I’ve been wrong before but I think this would be pretty healthy and I do want to try it.

ewg skindeep cosmetics database score 5Davines Replumping Superactive – I couldn’t identify 2 of the ingredients but even so this ranks a 5 with the cosmetics database without those. Cones rules this one out for me but it’s also not very healthy.
