Our eyes are not only one of our most expressive features, but they are also one of our most sensitive. Ever used a foundation or moisturizer that made your eyes water and sting? It is especially important when selecting mascara to find one that is gentle and non-irritating.
After going through many drugstore brands, I finally picked up a little tube of Mineral Fusion mascara from my local health food grocer, Fresh Thyme. With summer here, I chose the waterproof option in a gorgeous black/brown shade called Cliff. So far, I’m loving it. Applies smoothly; doesn’t clump; doesn’t smear. It also gives a soft, silky look rather than a harsh artificial one.
You can learn more about the company Mineral Fusion here and their entire product line, which is free of parabens, gluten, artificial colors, phthalates and other harsh ingredients. In fact, I’m anxious to try more of their products.
Good to know:
- EWG rating of 2
- Available in health food stores such as Whole Foods, Fresh Thyme, etc.
- Average price $18 per tube.
- Why do I like it? Gentle and non-irritating; applies beautifully.
