I stumbled upon this at Walgreen's when I was in Vegas last week for the Engage 09 wedding conference. Now, seeing as I'd left my mascara at home in Costa Rica (toddler + makeup bag = mommy's makeup goodies scattered throughout the house) I took a chance and bought the eco-friendly Physician's Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara. I thought, 'hey, all natural mascara? Why not!". Plus, it was on sale.
I admit I wasn't expecting much. Kinda like buying a fun pair of shoes but not really holding out much hope they'll be comfortable or last more than a few wearings. But, I'm happy to report, that I'm really loving this mascara! No clumping, it looks natural but definitely 'pumps up' the volume and I've received compliments on my lashes wearing it. It hasn't flaked nor has it bothered my contacts. While it's not water-proof (so I don't recommend it for your wedding day), it holds tight and doesn't smudge.
All ingredients are 100% natural, of which 47% are organic. Nice. It's free of synthetic solvents and petroleum by-products, is fragrance-free and hypo-allergenic. Even the container is made of 100% recyclable materials.
Eco-friendly, easy to use, works well, only $9.95 AND, if you purchase during 2009, you can receive a rebate! Being green just got a whole lot easier on the pocketbook.
