When faced with the choice of going with non-toxic make-up and toxic make-up which would you choose? The non-toxic one of course! There are so many well known beauty brands that are filled with harmful and unregulated ingredients, but because everyone uses those brands and truly they work so well it can be hard to switch off of them. I remember as a teenager I had no idea what clean make-up was or why it was important. Thankfully over the last few years clean cosmetic brands have shown up more and the facts about what is in our foundations, eyeliners, mascaras, lipsticks and eye shadows are being talked about more and more. Goop.com was my first encounter with what clean beauty was and why women need to be aware of what we put on our skin, and they have wonderfully informative podcasts on clean beauty, mental health, and physical health. Now places like Target and Kroger are partnering with more clean brands in their make-up isles, which I am super excited for but my wallet…..not so much ha!
So all that to say, I have recently been using this one brand called <a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="http://<a rel="noreferrer noopener" href="http://W3LL PEOPLE that I loveeee. I have super dry, sensitive, and acne prone skin and this brand has been just glorious. It makes my skin feel hydrated and gives it a subtle healthy glow, and knowing that the ingredients are super clean and it is EWG certified makes me feel oh so good. It has definitely helped my skin breakout way less and has left my skin smooth while helping ease the redness and scarring. I took a snippet from their website about what their mission is and what their make up is for!
**This was not sponsored btw I just absolutely love it and believe in their products.
The fact that our skin absorbs up to 80% of what we put into it is crazy to think about! Giving our skin products that are nourishing and healthy is something that W3LL PEOPLE and The Detox Market are all about. Now that all sounds nice and dandy, but you are probably wondering (much like myself) if it’s worth the switch. Well, that’s up to you!
Bio Boost Serum $28.99
MY FAVORITE PRODUCT. Holy moly this serum leaves my skin feeling nourished and cared for and gives it a beautiful soft glow. It helps combat breakouts, calm redness, brightens skin, and repair your skin through organic botanicals. I use this morning right before I put make-up on and at night before bed after a freshly cleansed face.
Narcissist Stick Foundation $28.99/Bio Correct Multi-Action Concealer $22.99
What I’ve noticed as far as foundation coverage from W3LL PEOPLE is that it’s on the lighter side of coverage. Definitely buildable but not full coverage by any means. They want to enhance your skins natural beauty and for those of us that have acne and scarring we’d prefer full coverage. HOWEVER, my personal experience has been that my skin is finally clearing up and healing instead of being constantly irritated. The concealer is also a lighter coverage, but it does work great around the eyes for puffiness and an extra layer of coverage for blemishes
Nudist Multi-Use Cream Stick (Basically Blush)- 23.99/ Bronzer Stick $23.99/ Bio Brightener Powder $21.99
I LOVE these two products. They are so creamy and feel so moisturizing on my skin and leave a beautiful natural glow from within look! They are meant to be buildable so the products go on lightly and then the color builds with each application. I just use my fingers to rub it on! Currently they only come in one color each, and the blush can be used as a clean lipstick and even an eye shadow. Multi-functional product?! Yes please. The Bio Brightener Powder is great to use as a setting powder and if you prefer more of a bright matte look. It still shows some of the glow from the other products, but not as much!
Pencil Eyeliner/ Expressionist Mascara/ Brow Gel $17.99
Ok used to I only wore liquid eyeliner for a nice cat eye look (Tarte’s Maneater is my favorite), but W3LL PEOPLE’s pencil eyeliner is the perfect thin eye framing eyeliner. The mascara is PHENOMENAL. Honestly I used to use the Maneater mascara from Tarte as well, but I love this mascara way more. First off, it’s clean ingredients which is so nice considering your eyes are so sensitive and delicate. Second, it creates such pretty long lashes that look just naturally long and not clumpy at all. This mascara also won Allure’s Best of Beauty award and Elle’s Essential Beauty Product award. Also it does not flake off which is HUGE y’all. The brow gel is a great way to tame your brows if they are already at your desired thickness. If you want your eyebrows to be darker, I’d suggest a brow pencil or eyeshadow to color them in and then use this stuff to keep them neat and in place. I just use the brow gel because I have fairly thick eyebrows!
On their website they say, “W3LL PEOPLE is an uncommon beauty dream team founded by an elite makeup artist, cosmetic dermatologist and treehugging entrepreneur.” Now you know it has to work well and be good for you if it was made by all of those people…. One of my favorite parts is that this brand has affordable products too, which is a blessing. So let me know in the comments what your favorite clean beauty product is and/or what brand you would like for me to review next!!
