Hi lovely Dotties! Nowadays, we as women are becoming more and more health conscious not only in terms of food, diet and physical exercise for the body and general health; but also in terms of beauty, by using natural and organic skin care and makeup products.
Our skin absorbs 80% of what we apply to it. As the largest organ on our body, we should be mindful of what goes on it as well as what goes in. The chemicals and harsh ingredients found in traditional makeup products can potentially propose health risks. This led to a rise in organic brands that women are unceasingly loving and purchasing; brands that carry products free from parabens, synthetic dyes and fragrances, phthalates and other harsh substances.
Josie Maran is one of the most popular organic makeup brands at Sephora. The quality of their products make consumers loyal to the brand. It is said to be mild on sensitive skin, as recommended by dermatologists and allergists. One of the Dotfully cofounders is a Josie Maran brand enthusiast. “I have dry skin, so I really like the 100% Pure Argan Oil Light. I used it on everything – face, hands, and hair.” – Lily
Another brand that has been raved even by celebrities such as Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston, is Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. Youngblood was specifically developed not only for sensitive skin but for acne prone, rosacea, and traumatized skin as well. The formulation is very gentle to the skin and at the same time gives a flawless, natural and lost lasting coverage that most women are looking for. Their Loose Natural Mineral Foundation is one of their most talked about product, as it gives a perfect natural finish without that cakey feel. According to reviews, it is long lasting and it can withstand even humid weather conditions.
Innisfree, a famous cosmetic brand in Korea, is known as Korea’s first all-natural brand. Their products include the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (best seller), Olive Real Cleansing Foam, Soybean Firming Serum, and more. We love that their makeup products use environmental friendly natural and vegan ingredients that are from Jeju Island, which is famous for their volcanic clay, soy bean, canola honey, and green tea. Not only are their ingredients beneficial for the skin, Innisfree’s makeup line gives the coverage and color richness that women want to achieve. Our personal favorite is their “Canola Honey Lip Butter” product. It has a jello-like unique texture, moisture lips really well, and tastes like honey. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen any Innisfree stores in the US, but you can certainly buy some of their products on Amazon.
Bagging numerous “Best of Beauty” awards and a huge crowd favorite, RMS Beauty has surely made a name of its own when it comes to pure organic makeup. Created by a New York based makeup artist with the intention to not only beautify women but help heal and nourish the skin as well. One of their bestselling products which is also supermodel Miranda Kerr’s favorite, is the Living Luminizer, which gives an overall glow to the face. Talk about having that inner and outer glow using natural makeup products, right?
In this innovative generation, we can now have healthier alternatives to makeup products without giving up the quality and effect that we look for in traditional makeup products. There are other tons of organic cosmetic brands with a wide variation of shades and colors that will suit each and everyone’s skin tones.; makeup products that will definitely not give you that guilt and that concern of possible effects on your skin, on top of your overall health.
