Clean makeup is a tall order. Trust me when I say I tried plenty of losers before I found my winners!
100% Pure - Makeup/Body products
Products I love: Eyeshadow, bronzer, blush, foundation, concealer, liquid eyeliner, mascara, lip liner, lipstick shampoo, nail polish
Customer Service: Top notch. Not only do they have a great members program, but customer service is quick to respond and fix any shipping errors. They regularly have great deals and specials.
Price: Not cheap ($20-$40 range) but 100% worth it and their products are very generously sized. Even with daily use, most of their foundations will last for 3 months at least, and mascara for 2-3 months (many of my products have lasted much longer!).
Araza Natural Beauty - Makeup
Products I love: 7 in 1 Coconut Foundation, Green Tea Concealer, Jojoba Mineral Powder, and Coconut Lip Gloss.
I literally use these products every single day! And for anyone dealing with acne or scarring, the three of these face products together do an amazing job of covering flaws (highly recommend a blender sponge for the foundation as it can be a little thick).
I'm not a big lip gloss girl, but especially in winter when my lips are drier, it's great to have something with color and moisture.
Samples: Yes. SAMPLES. So cheap. Rather generous (particularly the eyeshadow and lip gloss). How do you not try a few at $2.50 a sample?!
Primal Life Organics- Body products/Skin care, etc.
This company blew me away when I first discovered them. They have everything from deodorant, tooth powder, sunscreen, face products tailored from acne to anti-aging, baby products, etc. Every single item is 100% natural, concentrated, and contains 0% water or fillers.
These products are overflowing with natural high quality oils/essential oils and 100% deliver on what they promise. All I can say is, "hold onto your wallets", because you will have a hard time saying no once you see everything they offer! This company impressed me so much, that I'm now apart of their affiliate program.
Quality: Top notch! Most of it is certified organic and "clean enough to eat".
Samples: YES. I love companies that sell samples of otherwise expensive products. Check out their samples for: Toothpowder, deodorant, C-ex serum, banished serum, beyond moisturizer, coffee bean serum. You won't be disappointed.
Price: Expensive. However, since they do not use any water or fillers, their tiny bottles are hugely concentrated and will last a LOT longer than you would think. Most of their skin care products will last 3 months.
Overall, I figure they are still cheaper than skin lines like Rodan & Fields, but without all of the questionable ingredients and chemicals. As someone who has fought acne for over a decade, I can tell you that you will never regret investing in your skin.
Eden's Garden - Oils/Essential Oils
This company is one of the latest jewels I've found, and quickly becoming a favorite. It's a smaller, woman-owned business that produces their own oils in small batches so they can control the quality.
I started mixing a lot of my own products (oil based face washes, body oils, face serums, etc.), and realized that quality oils were essential. This company delivers - High quality oils at a VERY reasonable price.
Quality: Dare I use the words "wonderfully decadent"? Their Tamanu oil, for instance, is actually a thick buttery oil... compared to a tiny bottle I got off of Amazon that was thin and clear. The quality in these oils shine through.
Price: Very reasonable. A 4oz carrier oil is usually between $7-10. One bonus with this company for essential oil lovers, is that they offer essential oils in multiple sizes (5ml, 10ml, 30ml, 100ml).
Meaning, if you don't want to spend $60 on a regular sized bottle (typically 30ml) you will never finish, you can just order a smaller size and save your money.
