Hey girl hey!
Quick fact: Your skin on average absorbs 64% of what you put on it!
That’s right! Our skin is the largest organ we have and absorbs just as many toxins as those you ingest.
So why do I mention this? Well, when we use makeup on our already beautiful faces, we are absorbing most of the ingredients. Some that can be harmful to the body (see list of toxins here). For example parabens. This pesky preservative is known to cause pre-mature aging (making me look older, what?) and also can really throw your hormones out of wack.
Because of the effects of chemicals on the body this is why I have opted in for a more natural beauty routine. I already use Andalou Naturals for my skin care routine. But on top of my face wash, toner, and moisturizer, I wanted to take my skincare to the next level. I wanted to incorporate natural beauty products and become more aware of what I was putting on my skin.
I discovered 100% Pure beauty products through google ads (Oh google, you know me way too well). They started popping up when I started my certification for Integrative Health Coaching. So I popped over you 100% Pure to see what they were all about. I was amazed with their ingredients and what I read about the company.

I’m so excited to review 3 of their products for you that I recieved from 100% Pure.
- Maracuja Mascara: Black Tea

This mascara is 100% natural, 100% Vegan, and gluten free. Maracuja oil, pro-vitamin B5 and other conditioners strengthens for healthier lashes. It gets it’s color from black tea leaves, berry and cocoa pigments.
I was really impressed with this mascara. It’s so light weight you feel like you don’t have it on. Almost feather like. I love how soft it made my lashes and it smells amazing too. You will come to find that most of 100% pure beauty products smells so yummy that you want to eat them 😉 haha
Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Oil Anti Aging Lipstick: Foxglove
The color and texture of this lipstick is on point. I love lipsticks in natural colors and this one is a perfect pouty pink. With it’s anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients, it keeps your lips oh so soft. It’s concentrated with pomegranate oil, shea butter, antioxidants, vitamins and colored from fruit pigments. There are no synthetic chemicals, synthetic dyes, chemical preservatives or any other toxins. Again, truly 100% Pure.

I really have enjoyed this product and will definitely be keeping this on hand all the time.
These products have gone above and beyond my expectations. The smell great, feel great, long lasting, and don’t flake or clump. The ingredients won’t have you disappointed and you can rest at ease that what you’re applying to your face is 100% pure and natural and contain none of those toxins and chemicals that we talked about at the beginning.
Makeup is a blessing and a curse at the same time. It enhances our natural beauty and makes us feel oh so fabulous but ingredients can be counter effective when trying to preserve our youthful skin. So please be mindful with what you’re putting on your face and bodies babes and take baby steps to becoming 100% pure.
