Making a switch to non-toxic products is quite easy and pleasant when it comes to skin and body care products. However, it’s not always so pretty when it’s about the green make-up products. When I made the switch myself many moons ago (in October 2009 to be exact) there weren’t many organic make-up products available on the market.
One of the only one was Bare Minerals but it didn’t offer the convenience that the more toxic counterparts did. Plus, I’ve had so many non-green products that it wouldn’t even be wise of me to just toss them all away, so I decided to first use most of them up and try to find alternatives later on. As the years went on, more and more non-toxic make-up brands started popping up on the market offering a fantastic selection of products, from foundations and concealers to eye liners and lipsticks.
However, the one thing that has always been problematic for me, was finding a natural mascara that would make my poker straight, short eyelashes look at least somewhat presentable. I’ve tried dozens of the natural ones and none of them gave me satisfying results. They were either making my lashes clumpy or just not doing anything at all. Not to mention not holding the curl at all, due to being too wet and with not enough wax in them.
About 2 months ago, I stumbled upon Australian non-toxic make-up brand, Ere Perez. I haven’t heard about them before and after seeing that they also have a natural mascara I decided to give it a go, once again not expecting miracles to happen. I used it right away after it came and what can I say, it was love at first use. It’s perfect. It’s more on the dry side, which for me means that it holds the curl for the whole day. It also doesn’t clump even after putting a good couple of layers on.
It gives quite dramatic effect which I absolutely love.
I couldn’t also NOT mention its great ingredients, which include Almond and Avocado Oil along with Vitamin E, which protect and condition your lashes. It’s truly the best natural mascara I’ve tried so far.
I’m also eyeing their other products, which all look very appealing, especially their Bronzer and Blusher.
Have you tried any of their products?
