What is the Best Foundation that I Have Found?

By  | 

Hey every girl has her favorite right?  I know I do.  Have you ever heard of 100% PURE? Let me tell you a little background on 100% PURE.  Founded in a Napa, California farmhouse in 2005 and now based in Silicon Valley, 100% PURE  is a natural cosmetics beauty firm focused on providing healthy skin care, color cosmetics plus bath and body products.

Completely free of all harmful toxins, 100% PURE is a healthy and pure line of nourishing personal care items made only with the highest quality ingredients. Natural and 100% cruelty-free, 100% free of artificial colors, artificial fragrances, synthetic chemical preservatives and all other toxins. Beauty, as pure as it is powerful. Truly, health food for your skin.

If you have been following me, you know that I was diagnosed with cystic acne back in 2012, and since then I have changed my lifestyle starting with what I put inside my body. Everything goes in our bodies, from the food we eat, to the products the we put into our skin all can be harmful, just as they can be good.  I decided to try 100% Pure because I am big on organic products.  Overall, they have worked better for me, than anything else that I have used.   I love Fruit Pigmented Healthy Foundation, Mousse aka Super Fruit Healthy Foundation.

Why do I love this foundation?

It’s rich and creamy, and provides full coverage made of fruit dyed makeup that conceals all imperfections so you really do look like you have perfect skin without feeling heavy.  It’s creamy, and it mattes nicely at the same time…I know right, how is that possible it really does set great after applied.  It is one of the few foundations that I use, that does not require a setting powder, although I use it…it really is not required.  It leaves my skin feeling really soft.

The formula itself is enriched with antioxidant packed super fruits, vitamins and other nourishing nutrients.  Colored from the pigments of fruits and vegetables rather than being colored from minerals or synthetic dyes, this stuff is safe for your skin.

What are the ingredients?

Pigments of Prunus Persica Fruit (Peach), Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Fruit, Daucus Carota Sativa Root (Carrot), Punica Granatum (Pomegranate), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa Bean), Lycium Chinese Fruit (Goji Berry) and Solanum Lycopersicum Fruit/Leaf/Stem (Tomato), Camelia Sinensis (White Tea)* Leaf, Cucumis Sativus Fruit (Cucumber Juice), Aloe Barbadensis (Organic Aloe Juice) Leaf Extract*, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai Berry) Fruit Oil, and Punica Granatum Fruit Extract (Pomegranate Oil), Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Oryza Sativa (Rice Starch), Euphorbia Cerifera Cera (Candelilla Wax) Extract, Extracts of Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf, Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf, Citrus Grandis Seed (Grapefruit Seed), Linicera Caprifolium (Japanese Honeysuckle), Hydrastis Canadensis (Goldenseal) and Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Bark ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: 15% Titanium Dioxide

Great results have come from use of the product.  Because of the natural ingredients, it comes on easily, and it goes off easily without clogging my pores.  I highly recommend this foundation, and I am glad that they are making more colors for women of color. Lately, it has been the only foundation that I use.  It is safe, it’s green, it’s a healthy foundation. If you are wondering how do I get this stuff?

I have always been in love with all things beauty. From a little girl I would say that one day I would be a Cosmetologist. I did it, I became a Licensed Cosmetologist in 2006. I have learned so much about how to wear makeup, how to style the hair, and how to maintain the overall health of hair that I decided to create a blog. Being beautiful creates confidence, and flawless hair and makeup can help us all create that image we want to be. I want to help you step out of the box, try new makeup looks, and new hair ideas, new skincare regimens to make life better. You can live colorful, cosmetic, and be creative everyday give them some maxwell house coffee mmm, mmm good, and leave the tea home lol. Enjoy!
