Here is a quick 100% Pure Review.
Over the last ten years I have transitioned to more natural, vegan, non-animal tested cosmetics, skin, and body care. I am so grateful that I can still be girly, dress up, and wear make-up while still feeling good about what I’m putting on my skin.
I often get e-mails from people asking me what’s my favorite natural cosmetics and skincare company. Although I have many that I like, one stands out above the rest.
My absolute favorite company at the moment is a small company based in the San Francisco Bay Area called 100% Pure. They have two retail locations in Berkeley and San Jose, California. They also sell their products on the web, with some killer weekly deals and free shipping on orders over 50 dollars.
The company 100% Pure lives up to it’s name because their products are truly 100% pure – no synthetic chemicals, chemical preservatives, artificial fragrances, artificial colors, harsh detergents or any other unhealthy toxins.
The company focuses on antioxidants and you’ll find ingredients in their products like: Pigments of Peach, Apricot, Carrot, Pomegranate, Cocoa Bean, Boysenberry, Blackcurrant, Blueberry, Raspberry, Acai, Goji Berry and Tomato!
100% Pure products smell good enough to eat (not recommended), because the wonderful aromas in 100% Pure products are from real fruits, pure essential oils, and pure absolutes.
Only natural preservatives are used such as Japanese Honeysuckle, Thyme, Oregano, Goldenseal, Rosemary, Lavender and a high concentration of vitamins and antioxidants, so on each product there is an open jar symbol with a number on it. That number indicates how long you can use the product once it is opened.
My favorite products are the fruit pigmented tinted moisturizer (they also have a great foundation if you need more coverage) which gives your skin a natural glow and the dark chocolate tinted mascara that smells like chocolate and makes your lashes thick and full. I also like their fruit pigmented powdered blushes (my favorite color is healthy) and their fruit pigmented island kiss lip palette which contains 6 different shades of lipstick.
In the picture below I stepped out to give the dogs a walk and I’m wearing the tinted moisturizer and the masacara. I like that the tinted moisturizer evens out my skintone without looking like I’m wearing any make-up!
They also have a great selection of gift sets and online gift certificates that I’ve given out as presents to friends and family with rave reviews. Everyone that I have told about 100% Pure thanks me and ends up being a loyal customer.
I hope you enjoyed my 100% Pure Review and I hope you’ll go ahead and treat yourself on Valentine’s Day! Please forward this article to friends and family and if you have had any positive experiences with 100% Pure products please comment in the comment’s section below.
P.S. In the spirit of full disclosure I was given a few samples from the company for free, but since then I have ordered their products for myself, family and friends because I like them so much! I’m a self professed 100 Percent Pure addict! I also decided to become an affiliate as well and the links in this blog post are affiliate links.
