I try to be really careful with what I put on my face. The most important factor for flawless makeup is having healthy skin. If you put a bunch of chemicals and crap on your face that's going to be reflected in your skin with irritation, breakouts, redness, rashes, etc. Your skin is your body's largest organ and anything you put on it is absorbed right into your blood stream. So all those chemicals in your foundation? They're going right into your blood. That's why I read the labels on everything I put on my skin and try to keep it as natural as possible.
I first heard about jane iredale while I was interning at a local all-natural skincare company. They use ingredients that are good for your skin so you can feel good about using them. They're also a Massachusetts based company so I was excited to try out a few of their products for you guys.
POMMIST Hydration Spray
I love spraying hydrosols, toners, and mists on my face throughout the day. I find it so refreshing and it gives me an energy boost. I also love giving my skin an extra dose of antioxidants whenever I can. So I was anxious to give the POMMIST Hydration Spray a try. This spray hydrates, conditions, and protects all skin types. The key ingredients include pomegranate extract (a powerful antioxidant and UV protector), white tea leaf extract, and rosemary leaf extract. I've been spraying it under makeup and over makeup throughout the day whenever I feel like me and my skin need a little lift. It feels wonderful and I think I notice a more glowy complexion. I'd love to try out the other Hydration Sprays now and see which one I like the best.
When I first opened this the whole stick fell out of the canister, so that was disappointing but I just stuck it back in and it seems to be fine. This blush is really the perfect color for me. It gives me the perfect glow. You know that saying? That the best blush in the world is a sip of champagne? This gives me that exact color without having to pop a cork. It's not super pigmented, but I think it's offers great color. I also use it on my lips every now and then instead of lipstick or gloss. It's light, creamy, and moisturizing, and it adds just enough color to pull your look together. This might be my favorite of all the products despite the mishap upon opening.
Longest Lash Thickening and Lengthening Mascara
I have sensitive eyes. As much as I love my Benefit mascara when I use it, it irritates my eyes so much I find myself constantly fussing with them. Half the time it feels like there's a stick in my eye. I've used a few natural mascaras before, but they just don't seem to do anything. I couldn't even tell I was wearing any. I had heard good things about this mascara so I wanted to try it out. All in all, I thought it worked pretty great. It didn't irritate my eyes at all. It stayed on and didn't flake but removed easily with a bit of coconut oil. It's not my absolute favorite mascara I've ever tried. but it IS my favorite natural mascara that I've ever used. It's great for an everyday look when you just want to enhance your natural lashes and not wear something really heavy. Which is how I've been using it, as an everyday mascara.
Amazing Matte Loose Finishing Powder
Don't get me wrong, I love my CC cream. However, I've noticed that sometimes especially in the summer I can get a little bit shiny. I had been using the same finishing powder for years. It was okay...it kept my makeup on for 12+ hours but sometimes I felt like my face looked oily. I've been in the market for a new finishing powder, so I was glad to give this one a whirl. It seems to last all day even in the heat. It also does something amazing, it takes away the shine on your face without dulling your complexion. You still maintain a youthful healthy inner glow without looking greasy or oily, which is not an easy feat. It's a new favorite for sure and holy grail powder!
