After reading Janet's blog about her cleaning up her laundry room by choosing ecological green cleaning products I got to thinking about the products that I use in our bungalow and especially those that I use on my body.
I have edited the cosmetics that I use.
Disposing of those items past their suggested best by dates and I have been researching healthier options.
Jane Iredale is a mineral based cosmetic company that is sold locally in spas.
Jane's variety of products are available for young and mature skin types.
I have been using her mascara and foundation for about 2 years.
Until recently the lipsticks I used were usually purchased from the local drug store.
I chose the lipsticks based on their moisture delivering properties and the shades that suited my complexion.
The proximity of lipstick on my lips,
when drinking and eating
made me reconsider my brand of lip products
and the ingredients used to make them.
I decided that it was high time that I should be more mindful and opt for a safer, healthier choice.
Jane Iredale Mineral Make Up has quite a good reputation.
Many women use and enjoy her products and share reviews online.
Jennifer Connolly from A Well Styled Life has written about Jane's products.
"Just Kissed Lip Plumper "
I am wearing the shade Tokyo which is a great everyday colour.
Mint and ginger are the ingredients that plump up the lips.
Super moisturizing with ingredients Shea butter, sunflower oil and aloe vera.
Purchased at a local Spa
More expensive than many drugstore brands
but not as much as a designer brand.
I also read that Burt's Bees has a new 100% natural lipstick which has been getting lots of press.
Purchased at the pharmacy for $9.99
it is available in 14 shades.
This shade is called "Brimming Berry"
The Burt's Bees website offers this information...
"Features naturally moisturizing ingredients such as Beeswax, Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, and Vitamin E"
At this price one could have several tubes.
I like both of these lipsticks...
both feel great on and are loaded with moisture and feel natural.
So here you have a higher priced and a lower priced option...
it's up to you to choose!
I decided to get my salt and pepper hair
cropped into a short cut on my last appointment.
It is an easy care summer style and one that requires a bit of mousse and can be air dried which is perfect for our holidays aboard our Sea Ray.
Keeping and maintaining things as simple as possible is my goal...
the time saved means more time for leisure pursuits!
