Organic Makeup for Moms as Easy as 1,2,3

Lately I honestly don’t know what is more impossible, getting beauty sleep or finding time to put on makeup. Without either I look like a walking zombie. To combat this I have been following a very simple three product in three minutes morning routine that leaves me feeling moisturized, protected and presentable.

  1. Prickly Pear Antioxidant Sunscreen with Tint from Sweet P’s Organic Skincare – an awesome 4 in 1 beauty product (moisturizer, tint, sunscreen and antioxidant). Feels great on your skin and contains high amounts of vitamin A and C, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
  2. Eye Brightener from Terra Firma Cosmetics – tightens, brightens, and smooths the skin around your eyes.
  3. Shimmery Cocoa Berry Lip & Cheek Tint from 100% Pure – Contains anti-aging vitamins and antioxidants and was designed to be used as a cream blush and a lip tint.

Antioxidant Sunscreen with Tint Ingredients: Prickly Pear Juice, Organic Jojoba Oil, Vegetable Stearin, E-wax, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, om-cinnamate, ecocert preservative, oxide and mica organic minerals

Eye Brightener Ingredients: Water, Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel, Carbomer, Pullulan (from natural starch), Palm Christi Oil, Boron Nitride, Mica, Lauryl-Lisine Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol

Shimmery Cocoa Berry Lip & Cheek Tint Ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Honey Beeswax, Grapeseed Oil, Vitamin E (a-tocopherol), Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate), Pigments of Cranberry, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Raspberry, Cabernet Grape, Plum, Strawberry, Cherry, Peach, Apricot, Blueberry, Cocoa Bean, Carrot and Tomato, Strawberry Extract, Mica

Look who is wearing mommy's lipstick

At least with these ingredients I don’t have to worry about Ivey playing makeup.

Pure Organic Shea Butter from Organic Essence

This is my all time favorite Organic Essence product for the following reasons:

  1. High quality cold-pressed, organic, pure shea butter that is truly a multi-purpose beauty staple (note: watch the video below to find out how I use it)
  2. It is natural and “baby safe” since no solvents or chemicals are used in its production.
  3. A biodegradable jar that functions just as well as glass or plastic, but will break-down via home composting.
  4. Fairly traded – by purchasing this product you are helping support 600 women in Ghana.

Still not sold on how great this product is? One of my fellow blogger, Truth in Aging, wrote an amazing review of this product which you can read here. This gal knows her stuff!

Shea Cream from Organic Essence

This Shea Cream is a powerful moisturizer that really combats dry and stressed skin. Because of its high shea butter content a little goes a long way. Great as a massage cream, all over body moisturizer or even a make up remover. Available in refreshing and relaxing scents: Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemongrass Mint and Vanilla Orange. Since it is USDA Certified Organic there are no parabens, fragrances, or petrochemicals.

And the best part…
A biodegradable jar that functions just as well as glass or plastic, but will break-down without a trace.

Full Discloser: Organic Essence was kind enough to provide me samples of three of their shea creams for testing purposes but I continue to use (and purchase) these product because I love them.
