Back to the title of this post: Lipgloss is indeed the “gateway product” for many people trying to go green in their beauty routine. It’s the first thing that Jordan and I tried when we began this chemical-free, organic journey. It started years and years ago, when I read something about how women eat an enormous amount of lipstick in a lifetime. So when I saw a new gloss containing “vitamins,” I bought it for Jordan. Soon we realized that it wasn’t just about an opportunity to consume an admittedly tiny amount of extra vitamins; here was a chance to eliminate toxins, parabens, and, especially lead, from the makeup product we “eat” the most of. Of course, we know now that all make up and beauty products are absorbed through your skin as if you were eating them, but we started small. And here we are, 4 Earth Days later, giving away 7 fantastic lip glosses FOR FREE!
Here’s what we’re giving:
Jane Iredale NEW PureGloss in Snow Berry (reviewed here by Emily)
Jane Iredale NEW PureGloss in Red Currant
Jane Iredale NEW PureGloss in Beach Plum
Vapour Organic Elixir Plumping Gloss in Coax (reviewed here by Jordan)
