Should I Be Using a Clean Mascara?
If you’re anything like us, mascara is just one of those beauty essentials we never go without. And as we’re kicking off a new year, we’re deff thinking about ways to clean up our daily makeup routines, which includes switching to products that are efficient (hello, time savers) and clean (look good, feel good, repeat). For you, if this entails ditching your traditional mascara, do not fear you’ll be missing out on the va-va-voom level of lashes you might be used to building:
1. You’ll be doing your eyes a favor. You may avoid the chance of exposing your highly sensitive eye area to ingredients that can be harsh or irritating. Plus, if you are a contact lens wearer or deal with issues like dry eyes, you know the struggles of finding a mascara that lives up to your expectations. Our eyes take care of us each day, so it’s important to take care of them back with trustworthy products that feature carefully selected ingredients. Upgrade to a toxicologist-audited mascara formula that is also paraben-free, silicone-free, and made without potentially harsh ingredients.
2. You can rock lashes with wow-worthy length using a clean mascara! The search is over for a cruelty-free mascara that uses plant-based fibers AND can deliver defined-looking lashes with serious lift.
