"Fashion is as profound and critical a part of the social life of people as sex, and is made up of the same ambivalent mixture of irresistible urges and inevitable taboos” - Rene Konig

Green Week - Cosmetics

No body really wants to know what's in cosmetics you will be surprised and not in a good way. Parabeen, chemical abrasives, preservatives, dyes and I can go on. It is no surprise why many of us go thru product after product without really finding one that won't clog our pores or irritate our skin. Products come with beautiful promises that many fail to keep. Today natural products are the fastest growing market in cosmetics. We are really looking for products that will deliver, products that will keep their promises of beautiful, healthy skin. The latest trend in natural beauty is the revolutionary mineral make up. Brands like i.d. bareMinerals are all the rage now. Who doesn't know about the swirl, tap, buff? Natural cosmetics are made to not only make you look pretty, but to also improve the condition of your skin. After all, if your pores are going to suck in your make up, then make the most out of it and put on the right full-of-benefits products. The following cosmetic brands are not only packed with natural ingredients but are also made to be easy on the environment so you can swirl, tap and buff you way to a healthier more beautiful you.

Hola! Muchas gracias por el enlace!

Adoro los post de maquillaje y cosmética. La mayoría de las marcas que sacas en el post no se venden en España, pero me las apunto para buscarlas en futuros viajes al extranjero.

De maquillaje, yo uso el de Bobbi Brown, que me encanta, y el iluminador de YSL, que es mágico.

And what are the best skin care products?

Just noticed this. Look a bit more carefully & you'll see some of the products you mentioned have chemicals in them that are linked to cancers. There are more companies providing true green & checical free cosmetics that are healtier for people & planet. For exmaple, look into Heban Lifestyle products or holeco organic minerals. Much better choice.
