So this week my curiosity has peeked when it comes to investigating toxic products in my house. After investigating Baby Wash, Cleaning products I’m not onto Makeup. Makeup is something I wear everyday and products you put on your face absorb into your system. Therefore I was super interested to seeing how the products I use, and popular brands rated on the the Thinkdirty app. A reminder a rating of 0-3 is the safest!
Maybelline Fit Me Liquid Foundation = 9
Revlon Nearly Naked Foundation =9
NARS sheer Glow Foundation =8
Bobbi Brown skin Foundation Mineral = 8
Covergirl Matte Liquid Foundation= 8
The Body Shop Minerals Liquid Foundation = 8
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation =8
Mac Longwear SPF Foundation =5
L’oreal Paris Magic Liquid Powder Foundation= 4
Mac Mineralise Foundation- 4
Natio Mineral Loose Foundation= 3
Well the results are certainly surprising it appears that the price of the foundation doesn’t seem to reduce its toxicity. The term ‘mineral’ doesn’t guarantee that the product is safe, and brands such as ‘the body shop’, that market themselves as safe and natural, clearly aren’t. The same brand can have products that range in toxicity so its best to check your specific type. However, I wasn’t surprised NATIO was a safe product but I was surprised to find that the foundation that I use (NARS) came up as one of the worst- note to self- go makeup shopping tomorrow!
