Unless you’ve been browsing my blog pages or Facebook, you won’t know what I’ve been up to the last two months. In May, I was approached about a natural company that was getting ready to launch, and who was going to be focused on 100% natural skincare and makeup that was Certified Toxic-Free (third party certifications are a big deal, because then you know if what the company is saying about their products is true or not!), gluten-free, animal-cruelty free, vegan Skincare line, and specifically designed to be safe for children.
I thought it sounded interesting, because, you know, my whole gig is natural living in the real world. And…I was wanting to change up my makeup routine to something better for my skin, because even the “natural” companies I own products from aren’t really all that natural when you understand the ingredients! (Don’t get me started…) So I wanted to get this makeup and try it out.
And guess what.
It’s awesome. I’ve never had such full coverage for foundation. The eye shadows shimmer and blend SO nicely because they are loose powder. The blush can be used on my cheeks and my lips. Actually, EVERYTHING can be used in multiple ways, so I don’t
need a bazillion different products to create whatever look I want. And my adult acne has finally cleared up. Who would have thought? Not me, because I thought I had good quality more-natural products before. TOTALLY natural has been a game changer for me.
One of the first times I wore the makeup, I worked in my garden for hours afterward. The sun was blazing hot, and I was drenched–like dripping and maybe went swimming look–kind of drenched. And you know what? My look was still on. My only sun protection was that mineral makeup, and you know what? I didn’t burn (it naturally has about a 15-20spf).
It’s been played in, swam in, turned into face paint, turned into nail polish, and shared across the US with a waiting list for my Caribbean and Canadian friends right now. Because it is actually what the company says it is. Two months of using the skincare and makeup every day (every day that I wear makeup, anyway, which is turning out to be a lot more often than before because it’s so fast and simple to apply, and I actually feel good about what’s on my skin for once).
Two months of sharing it with anyone else who is looking for a truly natural, healthy, and safe option. And I’m appreciating it and what it’s doing for me more and more every day.
Keep Me Safe Organics, thank you for finally making a 100% natural line of skincare and makeup that I can trust. It’s about time we had something without GMO’s, gluten, toxins, nano particles, coated particles, or even packaged in bottles without BPA. Another mom came up with the idea for Keep Me Safe after catching her toddler playing in her makeup, and I get it. I get it.
We all want simpler living. We all want safer products for ourselves and our families. But it isn’t until we know what the better options are, that we can take them and make those changes. Know better, do better. We’re all in this together. ❤
