Thoughts from a reformed Department Store Makeup-aholic

Thoughts from a reformed Department Store Makeup-aholic
There was a time in my life that I fell overwhelmed, uncertain, like my nerves were on edge. I would get nervous in the car, and feel off. Like the strong person I once was had left the building.

A very dear friend of mine discovered that she felt the same way, but it was mostly triggered when she wore cosmetics.

What? I doubt it, plus I am a makeup girl. There is no way I am going through life without my "face" on!

Years later, when Dan and I started diving into a natural lifestyle, looking at perfume and cologne as triggers for Dan's Asthma, was an obvious change. It seemed like a no brainer. Use naturally derived scents instead of synthetic. Done!


What about fragrance in other products? Shampoo, aftershave, lotions,  and Makeup! 

One of my favorite things to do was to go to Nordstrom and buy new lipsticks, try different foundations, and of course we can't forget skin care!

Different makeup techniques and products are some of my favorite things! I love getting dolled up and feeling pretty <3

What the heck was I to do if makeup was actually causing me and my family harm? I kiss my kids and husband while wearing makeup.

Then I remembered my friend and her discovery years ago! Could it be that toxic makeup was actually affecting how she felt?

I didn't even want to think about not wearing makeup, it's not happening!

So I began to research, thanks Google! And I found a few, very few, clean makeup brands with plant based options. I ordered some and gave them a try. Some were okay. Not the Department Store Quality I was used to, but at least there were options.

There brands I would stay away from are Arbonne and Tarte. Mostly because they are not as clean as they lead you to believe.

Companies I like a lot are Omiana, and 100 Percent Pure, with my favorite being
Savvy Minerals.

With Savvy you will NEVER find:

Bismuth, Carmine, Coal tar, Dimethicone, Formaldehyde, Hydroquinone, Lake dye, Mineral oil, Nano particles, Oxybenzone, Parabens, Petroleum based ingredients, Phthalates, Polypropylene, Silicone, Sulfates, Synthetic colorants, Synthetic fragrances, Synthetic preservatives, Talc, Triclocarban, or Triclosan.
Savvy will also never use any of the 1,328 banned ingredients on the European Union banned cosmetic list.

What I want you to know is... you can make the switch! And when you do, I want to hear about it!

 My friend noticed that her feelings of being unsettled, overwhelm, and not being herself all went away when she swapped out toxic makeup for cosmetics that were good for her!
