When it comes to makeup, I will try pretty much anything! I am more of a "if a looks good, wear it" type of person. I don't usually think about what is in it. Well, I didn't before I had the opportunity to work with Natural Joy Beauty and test out a few of their amazing all natural makeup products!
Natural Joy Beauty offers natural products! Now you may be saying, "well, I can buy them at my local store". But, many products that say they are all natural still contain ingredients that aren't necessarily natural. You really have to read those labels and even then, sometimes, if there is a small amount of an ingredient in a product that isn't natural or safe, the company may not have to list is. At Natural Joy Beauty, you can feel safe and sure that your products will contain:
- NO Parabens or Phenoxyethanol (a.k.a. Optiphen)
- NO Japanese Honeysuckle (preservative form)
- NO FD&C Colorants or Synthetic Fragrance
- NO Toulene, Formaldehyde or Phthalates
- NO Propylene Glycol, Dimethicone or Diazolidinyl Urea
- NO Talc, Nano-Particles or Aluminum
- NO Bismuth Oxychloride, Titanium Dioxide (loose form)
- NO Petroleum, Mineral Oil or Paraffin
- NO Triclosan or Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulfates
- NO Animal Testing
There are a ton of products that are great for everyone. We got to try out a few awesome ones that made me a customer for life! I got to try the Creme Concealer by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques in Warm Medium since I have olive tone skin and I am seriously amazed! I normally wear a very expensive well known brand of under eye concealer and have always thought that it was the best one I had ever used until now! Not only is the Lauren Brooke concealer so much cheaper then my regular concealer, it is a perfect match! Not what I thought was a good match, but an actual perfect match. This has never happened before. It covers so much better because the shade matches my skin tone. Well, technically it is a little lighter but when I put it under my eyes, my dark circles are completely concealed and my face looks so much more refreshed. Also, when I use it on pimples and scars on my face, you can't tell I am covering them up. That has always been another challenge in itself. I would have to buy one concealer for my eyes and another for my face. But the Lauren Brooke one works for everywhere! It is nice and thick but spreads easily when I put it on. I just use multiple applications until I get the coverage I want (which is usually 2). I just can't get over how awesome it looks on! Plus it is good for your skin!
This concealer contains a phytolipid complex, carrot seed oil & eyebright extract! All of these ingredients are know for their healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Along with organic green tea and pomegranate extracts your skin will be loving the special new attention it is getting! You can also use this as full face concealer. The jar contains .30 oz of product and guess how much? $11.99! How awesome is that! I found my new concealer and it couldn't have come at a more perfect time! We have been strapped for cash and I wasn't sure what I was going to do since my other concealer was running out. So now I won't ever have to worry about it again since this one is so affordable.
If you aren't sure which shade will match your skin color (although I'm sure it should be easy from the options that are given) you can just order a sample! You can order a sample on almost every product found at Natural Joy Beauty! So, if I wanted to make sure that the concealer would have been a perfect fit for me, instead of trying the full size product, I could have ordered a sample for only $0.99!
The second product I got to try was also a huge hit! It was the 100% Organic Raw Unrefined Shea Butter by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques. I ordered this because I read on the site that it was really good for eczema and lately, Emma's skin has been horrible. It is so patchy and red. The first time I used it on her, the next morning there was a dramatic difference. We use it every night and Emma's skin is significantly clearer. We missed one night of putting it on and her skin started to turn red again so I know it is working miracles for her and she complains a lit less about it too which is always nice for a worried mom!
I was also sent a few samples of products that I will be ordering in full size! I got to try a little of the NEW ColourFusion Lip Glaze by Lauren Brooke Cosmetiques in Guava which is AMAZING! It is truly like lip gloss and lip stick mixed in one! The color and texture is just amazing! This is a definite ordering must! They also sent some of the Barefoot Butter by Essentially Basic Skincare which is great for cracked heel repair and eczema treatment and Lip Balm by Wild Willow in Almond! Both of these products are just as amazing as the others! And of course they are healthy for your skin!
The customer service is just as perfect to match! I worked with Joy and she was so helpful and really wanted to help with Emma's Eczema which is why she sent the barefoot butter also. I love when you get amazing customer service and amazing products. I don't think you can go wrong ordering from Natural Joy Beauty. Everything about this company is amazing! Can you say that I'm in love? Of course!
