Good Morning. This is a collab post. Brianna asked if anyone would like to do a products I would repurchase collab. I thought it sounded like great fun. Although I'm not exactly a "green beauty" blogger, I am very conscience of the ingredients I use on my skin, and in my makeup, and I'm more green than not. Some of the collabs will be videos, some will be blog posts, and some will be both. Be sure to check them all out by clicking HERE or at the end of this post there is another link
I have for you today several products that I would or have repurchased. I love these kind of posts because I think it really speaks of the products.You aren't going to buy over and over a product you don't like, doesn't do what it says, or doesn't work well.
I'll start with skincare. I do the oil cleansing method because my skin is so very dry. I use almond and jojoba oil, with a drop of tea tree and/or lavender. I massage it onto my face using my finger tips. I heat a washcloth up with water as hot has I can take it, then lay that on my face. After the cloth has cooled, I wipe away any excess oil, and repeat the process three to four times. I'm left with soft moisturized clean skin.
I also use either the almond or jojoba oil to remove eye makeup by placing it on a cotton pad, and holding it to my eye, then gently wiping away the eye makeup. I have repurchased all of these items many times. They can be purchased online at places like amazon.com or vitacost.com, or at a natural food store if you have one.
I know this says it is toothpaste, but I didn't love it as a toothpaste (I will use it as toothpaste tho, but I like my homemade toothpaste better), so I decided to see how else I could use it. The ingredients are great, so I use it as a face mask, and for a spot treatment for blemishes. Now there is menthol/wintergreen so you want to keep it away from your eyes, but it feels really nice. If you have ever used the Queen Helene face mask (which has horrible ingredients), it feels a lot like that on the skin. Apply to the face, leave for 5-10 minutes, then wet a washcloth with warm water, place it on your face, then wipe away the product. Repeat until all of the mask is removed. I noticed a reduction in pore size immediately, as well as soft fresh feeling skin. I purchased this at a local natural food store, but it also is available online.
I love this blush (still wish the ink wouldn't bleed). I love the color, the texture, the lasting power. It is the perfect shade I think. Available at The All Natural Face. I believe it is also lip safe.
Last, but certainly not least is my Physicians Formula Organic Wear mascara. I have repurchased this more times than I can remember. It lasts, doesn't flake, is buildable, and is available at the drugstore, or Walmart. Mascara is the one item that I put on even if I am wearing no other makeup, unless we are going to Kings Island, or a water park, then why wear make up. I feel like mascara instantly wakes up my face.
Just for comparisons sake. Here is the All Natural Face mascara on one eye and the Physicians Formula on the other. Two coats on both eyes on the top.

And you should be able to see why I love that mascara so much.
Be sure to check out all these other bloggers and see what products they would repurchase. I'm sure I'll find some new products to try! Thank you Brianna for getting this together. I had a lot of fun!
