green beauty


i am always on the look out for a good mascara. i recently came across the physicians formula organic wear 100% natural origin mascara and i am loving it!

according to their website it is:

- 100% free of harsh chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, clumping, smudging, flaking, fibers & dyes

- 100% recyclable eco-brush defines each lash with ultra-soft plastic bristles.

if you are looking for a more green, eco-friendly, and awesome mascara i highly recommend this one!

Oh, that looks great! Cute package too. I was actually on the lookout for a new mascara, preferably green, so this is perfect.

How is the smudge factor? I always have trouble with that--I'm an eye rubber.

Thanks for the referral, I'm always looking for a great mascara! The packaging is adorable!

Melita, I adore this and I reviewed this one several months ago. It is my favorite! I was using Tarte Lash Hugger and this one is better. No smudging, not even in the summer humidity.

I love many Organic Wear items...great quality!

I bought this mascara for my sister and mom, based on Karley's review..:) My mom hasn't used it yet, but my sister has and really liked it. I need to get one for me now!

Melita said...

thanks so much for your feedback ladies - it's ALWAYS appreciated. hugs!!

kate - i got it at target actually :)

grace - the smudge factor isn't too bad. sometimes when i get off the massage table i have to clean it up a bit. i wish there was a water-proof option but i realize that there is probably a lot of non-green things go into making it waterproof. so as far as a non-water proof option, i really like it! hope this helps :)

Ohhhh I wish I lived near a 24-hour drugstore because I want to get it right now! Thanks :>

I'm not into the whole "green" thing, yet. I am taking baby steps, though, but I do LOVE mascara. It is my staple when it comes to makes-up: powder foundation, mascara, lip smackers-flavored.

I am going to order this today. I will give you an honest review after using. I wear contacts, so I wonder how it will affect those, as well.

Love you blog...really! :o)

What a great blog and great info...I'm an eye rubber as well but I'm trying to cut down on that ... maybe I will when I try this fab new mascara...YAY

Lisa said...

Whoo hoo! I am JUST in need of new mascara...I'll definitely check this one out!

Ah, so fun to consider mascara in the midst of the depths of current reality. THANK YOU.

Serena said...

Thanks for the recommendation, Melita. I will definitely look out for it...I only hope they have it here in Australia.

trying it!

I wish that I could remember but I recently came across a mascara that TRULY was green. The container was made out of cardboard...no plastic. I didn't try it out but I'd be curious to learn if anyone has had success.

i don't even want to know what's in my mascara... scary stuff i bet! must find this.
