When we think of spring, blooming flowers, bright colored dresses, flip-flops and warm sunshine come to mind. Often times that makes us want to open our windows, breath in the fresh air and do a little spring cleaning. But instead of your home… let’s focus, for a minute, on spring cleaning your makeup bag!
Spring clean your makeup bag
A clean makeup bag can be just as refreshing as a clean home.
Clean makeup products can be even more refreshing!
What if we began swapping out all the clutter via: makeup that contains fillers, toxin’s and chemical… for something safe, gentle and clean? No additives, just the stuff that works.
When your home is clean and organized it balances, brightens, motivates and inspires! When your beauty items are clean it can also balance and brighten, allowing our skin to glow with radiance and health!
It’s amazing how clutter can irritate and aggravate…. what do you think those toxins are doing to your skin? All that unneeded junk is clogging up our lives and quite possibly, our pours!
An article from the huffingtion post – 10 toxic beauty ingredients to avoid stated this:
If you thought the FDA does a subpar job in regulating what goes into our food supply, you’ll be equally appalled, if not more, on its regulation of cosmetic and personal-care products. The same way you look at food labels, you should do the same for your beauty products.
There are thousands of chemicals in your products, many of which are being absorbed into your body. These companies have cart blanche to use any ingredient or raw material without government review or approval.
What to look for
Do you know what makeup ingredients should be avoided? The article link above lists a few. My post, Clean out your makeup bag, has a few more.

Reasons to spring clean your makeup
If all that wasn’t reason enough, I have my own personal story to share…
I’ve had skin issues in recent years and was forced to toss any and all toxic makeup aside. I suffer from Perioral Dermatitis, a nasty skin condition that causes red irritated skin around the mouth and nose. If you want to learn more about that (it plagues way to many women) click here >>> Do you struggle with Perioral Dermatitis?
Anything aggravates this skin condition, anything! That’s why I opted for a makeup brand that was made of all natural ingredients and this brand in particular was labeled safe for sensitive skin.
My skin condition that reacts to everything, didn’t react to this makeup. I had zero irritation, I could’t believe it! I was so excited that my makeup counter began to fill with the many products this line offers. All safe, all gentle all stellar quality!
Making the leap
I made the leap to Savvy Minerals.
It’s made from:
- arrowroot powder
- kaolin clay
- jojoba oil
- mica colors
- it is also gluten and cruelty free
There are no:
- nano particles
- synthetic fragrances, colorants or dye’s
The love for this makeup didn’t stop with the irritation. When the eyeliner didn’t run or wear off throughout the day, and the foundation actually made my skin feel soft and smooth… that’s when I was really sold.
The minerals are absorbent which helps it set and stay in place all day long. I don’t touch up my makeup ladies. I apply once and that’s it. The only thing that needs reapplying is the lip gloss and or lip stick – naturally.
The fact that I get complements on how soft and amazing my skin looks is a testament to this makeup. Honestly, this is my everyday face (minus the fake lashes 😉 and I LOVE how natural it looks and feels on my skin.
