If you are into natural beauty, you are in serious luck because Young Living Essential Oils recently launched its first ever cosmetics line – Savvy Minerals by Young Living
When I received my first order of Savvy Minerals, I was like “How in the world do I apply powder to my face?” See I was used to the liquid makeup, I would just put some on the palm of my hands and hop I was on my way! That was before I met Young Living, of course! Savvy Minerals by Young Living has truly changed my perspective on makeup! Not only it is healthier for my skin but it really only takes 5 minutes to put on my face in the morning.
Though many companies call themselves “natural” or “green,” Young Living lives up to the claim: You can find an ingredient list for every product on its website (the new Savvy Minerals eyeliner has, literally, three ingredients), plus in-depth descriptions of the company’s farming and sourcing practices. Most importantly, though, the products work — not always the case when it comes to plant-based beauty.
The products are safe, which is a huge reason why I went for Savvy Minerals. I need to make sure that everything I am putting on my face – and on my body in general – is safe. There is a lot of ‘safe’ makeup out there that I haven’t found really work, to be completely honest.
The mineral foundation, for example (available in 10 shades) features kaolin clay, which gently absorbs excess oil to combat breakouts, while the finishing spray is infused with aloe vera and glycerin (the former soothes irritation and the latter helps to lock in moisture). It’s not the most affordable line on the market (prices start at $20 for the Misting Spray and top off at $60 for the Veil translucent powder), but for plant-based beauty that pulls double duty, it’s worth the splurge.
