Why I switched to Savvy Mineral

Young Living, Oils, Savvy MineralMeaghan White

I used to always buy cheap makeup from CVS, which always ended up making my skin breakout, so then I switched to a more expensive brand, thinking it would be better for me…. NOT! After I downloaded the “Think Dirty” app, I found out that even my good make-up was FULL of toxic chemicals. While a small amount of each chemical isn’t terrible, using it for an extended period of time has the potential to cause cancer. So I decided to switch to Savvy Mineral make-up once I heard all the amazing things about their brand.

After using their products for several months now, I have seen an improvement in my skin! I no longer get breakouts and my completion has a beautiful glow to it!

Every Savvy Minerals product was carefully crafted so you can feel fabulous about yourself and what you’re putting on your skin. Their Products are developed with an unwavering standard of purity and quality, giving you a full variety of naturally derived products made without cheap fillers or synthetics—and that’s a beautiful thing!
A few fun facts:
✨ Savvy Minerals are free from: talc, lead, bismuth, mineral oil, lead, mercury, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic colorants!
✨ Savvy Minerals are made in the USA (the brushes are made in Italy).
✨ Savvy Minerals are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and mostly vegan (the lipsticks and lip glosses have beeswax, so they are not considered vegan).
✨ Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the skin and make the skin feel silky smooth. This is important because most mineral makeup uses bismuth, which is a metal mineral that - when worked into the pores - aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts.

Here are a few of my favorite products to use so far.

1.Mineral Bronzer Powder-

First on the list is their Mineral Bronzer Powder. Made with mineral-based ingredients and free from chemicals like talc, bismuth, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, or synthetic fragrances. They are also vegan friendly and not tested on animals. The colors of their blushes and bronzers are just beautiful and add to your natural skin glow.

2.Mattifying Primer-

First I use the Mattifying Primer in the summer to keep the shine away. Formulated with Manuka and Tea Tree essential oils. It gives my skin a matte finish and all day during the hot summer months.

3. Eyeshadow (Determined) -

I finish off my eyes with an eyeshadow. Made with a finely ground mineral base, and made without fillers, synthetic fragrances, or parabens, so they meet our superior standards and are gentle enough for sensitive skin.

4. Lip Stick ( Muse and Wish)-

My lips stay free of cracks all day because each lip stick is essential oil-infused. They have a variety of colors that I would like to try more of, but for now my two favorite are Muse(brown) and Wish (pink).

5. Poppy Seed Lip Scrub -

Before putting any makeup on, I massage the scrub into my lips in a circular motion, and the poppy seeds and moisturizing formula which gently exfoliate and cleanse my lips to help remove dry skin. It has four different types of butters including cocoa butter, mango butter, avocado butter, and shea butter which leaves your lips feeling so soft and free of dry skin.
