Okay, I may be stereotyping here, but mascara can be the worst offender when it comes to toxic behaviour. That is because most mascaras on the market contain coal tar to get their inky black colour. So, it’s time to say NO THANK YOU to toxic makeup! Bring on the natural mascara!
And just in case you think I’m overreacting, let me put this in perspective…
Firstly, coal tar contains chemical nasties like: benzene, naphthalene and phenols. Secondly, it’s a by-product of coal gas production and it’s also used for building and repairing roads, sealing car parks and making paint. That is why it’s hard to understand why women are encouraged to paint it around the most sensitive, delicate and vital parts of their bodies – their eyes! How could that POSSIBLY be a good thing???
Going natural is a no-brainer
Now that I’ve got that off my chest, let’s talk natural mascaras.
I live a busy life – two girls, partner, full-time job, side-hustle and the constant search for the perfect chai – so in the mornings my motto is:
‘All I need is Mascara and Caffeine.’ Can you relate to that?
That is why I want to introduce you to my go-to beauty saviour… Enter: Savvy Minerals Mascara. Young Living have switched all the nasty ingredients out for all-natural, no-tox ones. Including Lavender essential oil, so you can be sure that your mascara is a little less bad boy and a little more good guy!
Savvy Minerals Mascara glides on smoothly and perfectly complements and accentuates your natural beauty. In addition, this natural mascara contains ingredients that work to condition and nourish your lashes and give you a more defined look.
Pro Tip – for hygiene and health reasons you should replace your mascara at least every 3 to 6 months. You could potentially contaminate your mascara with germs and bacteria when used regularly.
Two Amazing Savvy Minerals Natural Mascaras to choose from
Want to pump up the volume?
Of course! Who doesn’t love thick, gorgeous lashes?
Savvy Minerals Volumizing Mascara is specially formulated with natural ingredients to make your lashes pop, including unique plant fibres that boost and build volume with each application. In addition, Young Living’s clean, cruelty-free formula is infused with Cedarwood and Rosemary essential oils to help condition your lashes. And the brush’s unique, full shape features wavy fibres to help ensure the perfect amount of product is delivered with each stroke. As a result there’s no clumping, flaking or smudging. Even more important – the non-irritating, naturally derived formula is gentle on sensitive eyes and lashes.
Want long, luscious lashes?
Farewell to falsies, we’re going natural! Savvy Minerals by Young Living® Lengthening Mascara is made with lash-loving ingredients including Lavender essential oil, arginine, buildable natural plant fibres, and carnauba wax to take your lashes to new heights (or lengths).
Lengthening Mascara noticeably defines, lengthens and curls for fuller-looking, lush lashes free of clumping or flaking. Once again, the clean, naturally derived formula is cruelty free and uses richly pigmented natural dye for dramatic visual impact and carnauba wax to weightlessly condition lashes. So, each application creates smudge-free, flake-free lashes that are remarkably flutter worthy.
