Physicians Formula Organic Wear
A major disaster! What was this, you say? I was out of pressed powder. Now for someone who is an “organic girl” at heart, this was a pretty rough thing since it’s tough to find good organic cosmetics locally. Previously I had spent oodles of money on a pressed powder from Whole Foods which I was not totally impressed with. So I knew if I was going to invest $15-$20 I wanted an excellent product. I have not had a chance to use it yet, but I really want to try the pressed powder by Real Purity (my favorite company.) I already use and enjoy their liquid foundation, mascara, and deodorant. I know their products contain minimal ingredients (the less the better) and are truly pure. Unfortunately the color I needed (medium) was out of stock……noooooo! So what’s a girl to do? Enter….Wal-Mart.
I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things and found myself in the make-up section (of course.) I had been reading blog posts about how discount stores are starting to carry more organic cosmetics and beauty products so I wanted to see if this was really true. I did a little browsing and came to Physician’s Formula. I had previously used their eye shadow but stopped when I found out they were made with talc (bad!) I looked and saw that they had a line called Organic Wear. It’s been out for a while but I hadn’t yet had a chance to check it out. The box said, “100% Natural Origin Pressed Powder” and was made with EcoBlend featuring Organisoy (helps even out the skin tone) and Eco-Olive (helps shield skin from environmental factors.) O.K. Sounds good so far. But I know how these companies like to say their product is natural and then throw in some crummy ingredients along with the good stuff. So I perused the ingredient list….and did not see any offending ingredients. No synthetic colors, fragrances, parabens or GMO’s! Sweet! Another cool thing is that it comes in eco-conscious packaging, with 93% less plastic than other powders. And the best of all, it is certified organic by EcoCert.
Needless to say, I was thrilled to be able to get this powder. I bought the powder and used it later that night…it gives you a smooth polished yet natural look. The only thing I am not too happy with is that it comes with a brush not the usual powder puff that pressed powders come with. But that is something you can buy separately if you desire. For under $13, this is a great product for a great deal and can fill in nicely until I can get my hands on the Real Purity powder. Stay tuned for my next post where I will share my love for Real Purity foundation. Until then…stay natural, stay beautiful…Robin.
