I changed out the vast majority of my personal care products a long time ago after finding out that many of them contained harsh chemicals, but there were a few lingering products that needed the boot as well. My makeup bag was definitely in need of a non-toxic makeover! Since my wonderful oils community has designated March to be our 'Natural Beauty Month', I am excited to share with you a wonderful natural beauty & makeup company, Root Pretty. Root makes wonderful, non-toxic makeup and beauty supplies that you can feel good about using. Plus, they are so affordable!
From their site:
"Our goal is to make the highest quality Natural & Organic beauty products anyone can wear & everyone can afford. Health & Safe makeup shouldn't be a luxury. All of our products are made with natural, skin-loving ingredients & no fillers. Our products are also Vegan & Gluten Free without the steep price tag or loss of quality. We challenge ourselves daily to make the most fun, trendy & truly effective products that you will adore whether or not you need products for sensitive skin."
Some of my favorites so far: mascara, macy mineral blush, gold eyeshadow, black gel eyeliner, cream corrector, pretty balm in 'Ballet'. I am excited to order some new makeup brushes and their brush cleaner! I have a bad habit of not cleaning my makeup brushes often enough, so I'm looking forward to using Root's non-toxic spray with it's delicious lemon mint smell.
Root will also make a custom shade for you! Just send them a small sample of a color you currently use, and they will match it for you. I did this with my favorite eye shadow after finding out it got a terrible rating as far as toxicity. I love the result!
Also, something fun for Natural Beauty Month! Root Pretty is giving away a $20 gift card to one reader! All you have to do is follow Root Pretty (@rootpretty) & Apothic Holistic (@apothic_holistic) on Instagram and 'like' Root Pretty and Apothic Holistic on Facebook to enter! Good luck!
