Liquid -The Body Shop - Extra Virgin Minerals Liquid Foundation

This full coverage foundation blended onto my skin nicely. Unfortunatly, it also made my combination skin very shiny after just a few hours and made me breakout. I won't be buying it again.
Very very very very messy - but it's worth it to avoid permanent damage to your hair. This colour makes my medium brown hair soft and just a bit reddish, which glows beautifully in the sun.
Skincare - Body -Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Gel Body Oil

This product just left my skin oily, and did nothing to help my eczema. It's not too surprising, as the main ingredient in this product is paraffinum liquidum (mineral oil). While not usually harmful, mineral oil isn't moisturizing either. It just sits there.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Hard as Nails with Nylon nail polish

Make sure to check your ingredients with this one. The basic "Hard as Nails with Nylon" contains DBT (dibutyl phthalate), which is known to cause birth defects. This ingredient was removed in the "advanced" formula. I used to love this nail polish, but it's not worth hurting myself over.
This is one the few truly clean products you can buy. It leaves my face soft and clean. Yes, it's a bit annoying to have to mix the powder into a paste, but I think it's worth it! Be sure to use this product soon after opening it and keep it dry. As it's preservative free, it could potentially go bad.
I like this lipstick (definitely more of a lipstick than stain), but it worries me that it contains BHA, a known carcinogen and endrocrine system disruptor. I emailed Bloom for their ingredient list, here's the full ingredient list for Bloom Lip Stain in Nude/Stain/Tint/Veil: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (Candelilla Cera) Ozokerite Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate Lanolin Alcohol (Lanolin) Beeswax (Cera Alba) VP/Hexadecene Copolymer Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate Tocopheryl Acetate Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil BHA Fragrance (Parfum), Limonene Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil (Citrus Nobilis) [May contain+/-: Mica (CI 77019) (and) Titanium dioxide (CI 77891) Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499) Red 6 Lake (CI 15850) Red 7 Lake (CI 15850) Red 33 Lake (CI 17200) Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140)]
