I am so gung-ho about Physicians Formula Organic Wear line!
I decided to try out their original Organic Wear mascara – it’s 100% natural, 100% free of harsh chemicals, synthetic preservatives, parabens, fibers and dyes, 100% cruelty free and the brush is 100% recyclable! Seriously, how amazing is that!? In my honest opinion I was a little hesitant at first – I have heard that all-natural mascaras don’t achieve the same effect as traditional mascaras and I’m all about ’em lashes. To add to that fact it carries a moderately hefty price tag – roughly $17 at Shoppers Drug Mart, though I later (and grudgingly) saw it for slightly less at Target.
After roughly a month of wear, however, all hesitations have been set aside because I am satisfied with the results and knowing that it’s all natural is a serious plus. The back of the packaging even gives you a run down of traditional mascara versus Organic Wear mascara. I love makeup in all its forms and many, pretty (very pretty) colours, but if you stop to think about just how many chemicals – among other things – go into makeup the result is pretty astounding.
I will say that, in order to achieve similar or close-enough-to results as a traditional mascara, about three coats are required. This is a good everyday mascara, though I might try something more va-va-voom for nights out. Thankfully, Physicians Formula also has Fakeout Organic Wear mascara that is supposed to achieve a similar effect to that of false lashes. I will definitely be testing it out, as well as their latest CC cream. All things considered, I’d say it’s definitely worth the money!
What do you think? Have you tried this mascara and, if so, what are your thoughts?
