Psst…so, I have a little confession to make. It’s something that I’ve been shaking my head about for days…are you ready?
I, Kate Parsons, Holistic Esthetician, Makeup Artist, ingredient junkie and health-concious consumer, got sucked into the glimmer, sparkle and shine of a pretty box. I saw how it sat on the shelf in its shimmery white compact. I was hypnotized words like ‘pure’ and ‘natural’. The plush pinks, the beautiful bronzes and the pearly highlights came together like a kalediscope. I wore it, I loved it. I felt soooo good.
Week 2. Bam! Breakout central. Yup, confession numero uno: I TOO break out. Number two: I got duped. I forgot to check this product for skin-safe ingredients because the marketing said things like “natural” and “pure”, the packaging was so pretty and the product glided on like silk. When I finally realized my new breakouts were primarly on my cheeks, I flipped it over to look at the ingredients. Yup, didnt have to read far….the second ingredient was not safe for acne-prone skin. Bummer. But not surprised.
So, I’m back to blushing, bronzing and highlighting with my old-faithful, acne- safe, Osmosis Colour! (Pictured above. The “one we shall not name” is under it.) The moral? Check your ingredients, my friends. Better yet, book a visit with me and I’ll show you how to analyze all your cosmetics!
