Loved it/bought it since ★★★★ • Good stuff ★★★ • Not for me ★★ • Hated it ★
FiOR Minerals • Organic Eyeliner • ★★
Description: Formulated with Certified Organic ingredients • 7 shades of highly pigmented, smudge-free, long-lasting color • Creamy & moisturizing (so skin doesn’t pull) • Bursting with antioxidants & gentle enough for sensitive skin
I love that their product line is organic, vegan, cruelty-free as well as free from: gluten, gmo, soy, talc, parabens, bismuth, fd&c dye, and nano particles. However, I didn’t find their eyeliner to be long-lasting or smudge-free as they claim.
You can get almost any eyeliner to stay using primer and setting it with a little black eyeshadow, but if you say your shiz is smudge-free I shouldn’t be looking like 🐼 Panda Panda Panda 30 minutes later without the above mentioned steps. Let me know in the comments if you’ve had better luck.
Available at FiOR Minerals
Jacq’s Organics • Green Smoothie Scrub & Masque • ★★★
Description: Works beautifully on ANY skin and hair type • Formulation is rich with sea kelp, clays, charcoal, cacao, tamanu oil, and a myriad of nourishing plant extracts and essential oils // HOW TO: Mix 1.5 tsp of powder with warm water to form a creamy paste. After applying to skin or hair, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse.
I’ve gotten this masque a few times over my Vegan Cuts/Petit Vour subscription boxes. It’s a great mask with effective ingredients, I’m talking to you charcoal. If you have sensitive skin that dries out in a pinch I suggest leaving it on 8-10 minutes to start. It definitely reduces pores and pulls out some of those blackheads.
Meow Meow Tweet • Spot Serum • ★★★★
Value, sample (full-sizes, $6 & $25)
Description: All products are made with organic, raw plant oils and butters, steam-distilled and cold-pressed essential oils, and organic, wild-crafted botanicals • In this month’s box, subscribers received either a MMT Face Cleanser or Spot Serum
I love MMT’s natural deodorant so I was excited to try another product of theirs. At first glance I was underwhelmed, I don’t get very many pimples/spots and memories of spot serums from my teenage years aren’t good. Drugstore brands usually dried out my skin and made the pimples look worse the next day.
But I saved it until I had a spot appear near my lip, it was one of those under the surface/hurts to touch spots. I dabbed a little of their oil blend on my spot before bed and woke up to a significantly smaller spot that no longer hurt. Call me impressed. A little goes a long way so try out their $6 – 1 ml size first.
100% Pure • Facial Cleansing Brush • ★★★
Description: Thoughtfully made with antibacterial synthetic fibers • Gives skin a deep cleanse for softer-than-ever skin • Awakens and revitalizes skin, providing natural radiance // HOW TO: Use with your favorite cleanser or face scrub. Using a circular motion, massage cleanser into skin with brush, removing dirt and grime.
This is like gentle dry brushing for your face. The bristles are extraordinarily soft and therefore gentle on your skin even if you’re prone to redness.
