Kermit was spot on — it isn't easy being green. But, it is important for the planet and for our health.
Recently I made the switch to "clean" cosmetics. They can be a bit tricky to find (and more expensive), but I've loved everything. My newest acquisition — cheek tint from 100 Percent Pure. This company uses fruit extracts in its products. Get aload of the ingredient list for the Sugar Plum cheek tint: fruit Pigments of plum, pomegranate, red wine, cranberry, strawberry, blackberry and raspberry, Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), shea butter, grapeseed oil, cocoa butter, honey beeswax, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), natural strawberry flavor.
I'd spread that on my toast.
The tint — which smells as lusciously berry-ish as you'd imagine — smears on fairly sheer and leaves a nice flush, on lips, too. I'm anxious to try more.
