Foundations -100% Pure -Bamboo Blur Powder

This product is the bomb! My skin always looked oily at the end of the day but doesn't with this. I also use their liquid foundation which also is matte and helps with overall oiliness. The combination of these two products gives me the skin/makeup look I've always desired with my oily skin.

I have this in Poppy. A true neutral red seems almost impossible to find in a formula without carmine or FD&C red, but this is it! I do find that this stays most color-true and long-lasting when applied over multiple layers blotted in between. The scent is a subtle but refreshing berry.

Masks -100% Pure -Does It All Sheet Mask

Wonderful product! I do a sheet mask/face mask once a week for relaxation and absolutely loved this one. My skin was looking dull and tired from work and winter months, this sheet mask rejuvenated my skin right up. It gave me a nice glow the next morning. The glow lasted about a day but better than nothing! I can see it being especially great for emergencies / when needing a bit of a pick -me -up.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vegetable Glycerin, Rice Ferment Filtrate (Sake), Potassium Olivoyl PCA, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Vitamin C (Abscorbic Acid), Xanthan Gum, Caffeine, Vitamin E (Tocopherol), Vitamin A (Retinol), Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Oil, Helichrysum Italicum (Everlasting) Flower Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Cistus Ladaniferus (Cistus) Oil, Cananga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose hip) Flower Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Kinetin, Resveratrol

Masks -100% Pure -Deep Hydration Sheet Mask

on 1/27/2019 12:21:00 AM

foto

I love doing masks once a week- I find it relaxes me for the 20 minutes that I have it on (like a little mini spa treatment :)). This particular mask is in the style of Korean sheet masks with great organic ingredients infused like aloe and hyaluronic acid. I find this particular mask didn't seem to do very much for my skin. Usually the ingredients sink into and penetrate my skin pretty well, but this one seemed to just stay on top of my skin and it felt like I ended up washing off all the nutrients. I do find that hyaluronic acid does not sink into my skin, any product I've tried with it tends to sit on top of my skin. So if your skin loves hyaluronic acid, this might be a great mask for you.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vegetable Glycerin, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Extract, Panax Ginseng (Ginseng) Root Extract, Beta-Glucan, Ceramide 3, Potassium Olivoyl PCA, Xanthan Gum, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Vitamin A (Retinol), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Oil, Helichrysum Italicum (Everlasting) Flower Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Cistus Ladaniferus (Cistus) Oil, Cananga Odarata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose hip) Flower Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil

Treatments (Eye) -100% Pure -Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

foto

I suffer from puffiness under my eyes every so often, and this is the product that I reach for when that happens. Puffiness can be caused by different factors - some for which this may work and others it may not. Mine is connected to allergies, mostly pollen. When it flares up I just dab a bit of this on at night before bed and by the morning I can see a difference, perhaps 20-30% reduction in puffiness which I would guess is mainly down to the Green Tea and Green Coffee extracts (the other ingredients I've used both separately and in other products - with little results on reducing puffiness). 

I don't use it during the day due to the lack of SPF. For me the nightly application works just fine. The formula is quite moisturizing and smells really nice too. And of course it's organic, boasts a fantastic ingredients list of good quality botanicals and is vegan certified too. What's not to like? :)

BB Cream -100% Pure -BB Cream SPF 15

on 1/17/2019 4:42:00 PM

I have two issues with this product that forced me to return it: the texture and color.

This is thick and tough to apply. I tried using a foundation brush first, but the formula just dragged and wouldn't blend properly. Then I used my fingers, which was much better. It seems to leave a nice effect on your skin if you can manage to apply it evenly, with light to medium coverage & a glowy satin finish. But as a PPP, the lightest shade (10 Luminous) is still too dark and orangey. It actually looks closer to a medium shade. I've found this is true of every foundation/tint/base in 100% Pure's lineup -- they just don't make good shades for really fair skin tones.

I typically love doing face masks once a week- kinda like a mini spa treat ;) This mask is alright- didn't feel that it really made any huge difference to my skin. Had a pleasant scent but didn't really notice any difference to my skin afterwards.

Masks -100% Pure -Wrinkle Smooth Sheet Mask

on 1/7/2019 10:49:00 PM

Love this product! I accidentally bought a whole pack of them but I don't mind as I like to do sheet masks once a week (sort of as a more affordable spa treatment). I'm in my early 30s, no wrinkles yet so I can't comment on whether it helps with that or not. What it does is make my skin look super refreshed afterwards so I love it for that! It has a pleasant fruity scent, a bit too fruity for my taste but not overpowering. It's wonderful to relax with and just lie down (it's similar to the Korean sheet mask) with it once a week. I have refreshed and glowy skin the next day! I tend to use it on Sunday nights so that I look all refreshed on Mondays!

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vegetable Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Ubiquinone (CoQ10), Caffeine, Potassium Olivoyl PCA, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Xantham Gum, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Vitamin A (Retinol), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Seed Oil, Cistus Ladaniferus (Cistus) Oil, Canaga Odorata (Ylang Ylang) Flower Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens (Geranium) Flower Oil, Rosa Canina (Rose hip) Flower Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil

Masks -100% Pure -Anti-Acne Sheet Mask

on 12/29/2018 10:14:00 PM

Love this mask and I just have to share! I'm in my 30s so not really prone to breakouts but I did have blemishes on the side of my cheeks recently. Been there for the past month, red and glaring. This mask is in the style of Korean sheet masks but with far better ingredients. It's a sheet that's placed over your face for about 20 minutes (I left it on for 30). It did a great job! The blemishes did not disappear per say, but they became less active and are starting to disappear. I definitely think this mask helped kick start the healing process- it's full of great ingredients like aloe, rosemary, salicylic acid, witch hazel, etc. Would definitely repurchase!

Ingredients: Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vegetable Glycerin, Rosamarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Carum Petroselinum (Parseley) Extract, Hammelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Potassium Olivoyl PCA, Salicylic Acid, Xantham Gum, Ceramide 3, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Citrus Pardisi (Grapefruit) Fruit Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Laminaria (Algae) Extract, Melaleurca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil

Liquid -100% Pure -Fruit Pigmented Healthy Skin Foundation

I was really excited to try this foundation , I love that it has natural ingredients and is cruelty free. Yet , I have noticed that each time I have used it I have new break outs :( I didn’t want to think that this foundation was the cause of it but I think it is and that makes me so sad because I really wanted it to work for me. On the side , the packaging is really cute and I’m glad that it does seem to work for a lot of people though so don’t get discouraged by my review 💕 If anyone has recommendations for natural, cruelty free B.B. cream or foundation for acne prone skin please let me know!

Masks -100% Pure -Caffeine Mask

on 12/25/2018 5:53:00 PM

Absolutely love this mask! I came back from a trip to Maui, Hawaii super sunburned and this mask helped cool down my skin, soothed it and refreshed it. The mask is a "hydrogel" material and is 95% organic aloe and 5% plant cellulose. It has ingredients like Coffee and Yerba Mate Tea infused into it. It made my skin go back to "normal", after the ardour it had gone through after days of hiking and blazing beach sun. Wish I could buy it more often but it is a bit on the pricey side.

Ingredients: Aloe Barbendesis (Organic Aloe Juice), Coffea Arabica (Green Coffee) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Arbutin Extract (from Bearberry), Camellia Sinesis (Organic Green Tea) Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus (Seaweed) Collagen, Sodium Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Illex Paraguariensis (Yerba Mate) Extract, Plant Cellulose, Glycerin

Bronzers -100% Pure -Cocoa Pigmented Bronzer

on 9/8/2018 11:20:00 PM

REVIEW FOR "COCOA GEM" BRONZER (lightest of the 3 bronzer shades available)

CONS
- Very poor packaging. I'm not one to usually care for packaging.... unless it's really bad. The packaging broke/fell apart the first time I used it. There is a lid that you take off and a pot inside of a container (that is supposed to be secured to the container). The pot and container it's in separated, so it's now quite flimsy.
- The lightest color (cocoa gem) barely shows up on my VERY VERY PALE/FAIR skin. It's nice in that it is subtle, but I have never in my life had to go back over so many times to build color up with a blush or bronzer .... or anything really.
- 6 months expiry date (as opposed to the usual 12 or 24 month expiry date for powder bronzers that aren't all natural or organic
- Not readily available in stores. Ordered online and had to pay extra for shipping
- Does not stay very long on skin! Wears off fast and easily!....maybe it's just this lighter color I've chosen, I don't know about the darker shades but this one wears off SO SO fast
- Price

PROS
- All natural ingredients
- Very subtle color (I was looking for something to match the Trace Gold MAC color I've been using)
- Matte finish (which isn't really a pro or con for me, but ended up working well with a new, more radiant foundation I've been pairing it with)

Overall
- I might just buy this again, but in the next color up to see if I like that one. Not too keen on paying for shipping again. Wish this brand was available somewhere in stores

Mascara -100% Pure -Fruit Pigmented ultra lengthening mascara

on 9/6/2018 10:18:00 PM

Love this mascara in "Blueberry"--a deep glossy navy blue that accentuates blue eyes. Have bought over and over. Natural look with good pigmentation and water-resistant (not waterproof). Did not flake or smudge. Didn't irritate my eyes when wearing contact lenses. Love the ingredients and that it's cruelty-free.
Cons: Seemed to dry out quicker than other mascaras. Little pricey for mascara that dried out so quickly.


Treatments (Face) -100% Pure -Super Fruits Concentrated Serum

on 9/6/2018 9:04:00 PM

I would buy this product again if I could afford it. 100% Pure keeps bumping prices up. The packaging is pretty but worthless. This serum leaks out of the side of the bottle like crazy. It makes me wonder how long the potency of this product will last, as I'm the product is exposed continously to air. The serum itself, feels great, absorbs good and does give the skin a little plump. This IS NOT a dry oil. Don't expect the skin to eat it up on contact. A little bit goes a long way and too much will make your face wet. This is best used under another product (cream, foundation, etc). One thing I love about this product is how well it helps after a chemical peel. It's very soothing and seems to increase healing. That's the best use I've found for it.
