Green Beauty Must-Haves with jane iredale
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of jane iredale – THE SKINCARE MAKEUP™. All opinions are 100% mine.
A few years ago, I decided to embrace living intentionally with what I purchase, consume, and use in my daily life. That also includes the beauty products I put onto my skin. As a self-care advocate, I believe a big element of self-care and overall wellness involves what you put onto your skin.
Even though I don’t talk about it much on the blog, I am a beauty and skincare junkie. No matter how busy I get, I am always diligent with my skincare routine. Even the thought of sleeping with my makeup on makes me *cringe*. Over the years, I’ve slowly been working my way towards a greener beauty and skincare routine because I want to nourish my skin with ingredients that are simple and safe (you know, minus the parabens and all that jazz).
That’s where jane iredale comes in. As a beauty brand I’ve been wanting to try for years, I was excited to be given the opportunity to try jane iredale’s PurePressed Base® Mineral Foundation and Hydration Sprays. Today I’m sharing my experience with their products and why I immediately fell in love with them. If you’ve been wanting to add some greener products into your beauty routine, jane iredale makes it easy to start!
For me, being intentional with my skincare means it needs to have good ingredients AND require minimal time and effort to use (aka getting out of the door quicker). jane iredale products totally meet and exceed all of my beauty requirements. For one, jane iredale’s products contain clean ingredients that offer sun protection, antioxidants, and botanicals that nurture and protect your skin. Their products are also cruelty-free with no animal testing, including third-party animal testing. They also do not sell their products in markets where testing on animals is required.
Another pro is that these products are multi-functioning, easy to use, and totally hassle free (as in, no mess in your makeup bag when you’re traveling). Let’s talk a little bit about these beautiful products, shall we?
PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation
The PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation is a lightweight yet buildable compact foundation which means you can use it for sheer or full coverage. I’m all about products that serve multiple purposes, and the PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation doubles up as a concealer PLUS it has sun protection which is something I always look for in a foundation.
It’s also water-resistant so it’s not going to slide off of your face. For those of you who hate the feeling of makeup, it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything on your skin. PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation works well for all skin types and comes in 24 shades to match your tone. They even managed to create a shade that works with my extremely pale, combination skin.
The Hydration Sprays can be used to set your makeup and create a long-lasting, flawless finish. Each has its own unique aromatherapy and skincare benefits.
D2O Hydration Spray – Ylang Ylang helps to hydrate and plump skin cells
POMMISST Hydration Spray – Pomegranate Extract acts as a powerful antioxidant and UV protector
Balance Hydration Spray – Balance your skin’s natural oil production and pH with Orange Essential Oil, Orange Peel Extract, Green Tea Extract, Grapefruit Peel Extract and Algae Extract.
All of jane iredale’s Hydration Sprays are ECOCERT Natural and Organic certified. I like to use them after I’ve applied my foundation and in the middle of the day for a makeup refresher. They also smell absolutely incredible, so it feels like being in a spa every time you spritz your face.
A Quick How To Guide
It takes *honestly* less than a minute to get flawless coverage when you’re getting ready with jane iredale products. Here’s how:
Step One: Simply apply the PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation with the Handi Brush using downward strokes. To use the powder as a concealer, or for full coverage, simply use the Flocked Sponge to gently press and roll the product wherever you need the coverage.
Step Two: To set your powder, spritz with the Hydration Spray of your choice.
