Since over one year I’m using mineral make up cosmetics. I chose them when I found out that all L’Oreal brands were tested on animals!
So I started to look for good, organic, cruelty-free products.
Currently I’m using Bare Minerals goodies, but lastly I came across on the internet on Jane Iredale cosmetics. They also belong to mineral make up family which I already started to love and regarding to their description they really treat your skin in the possible best way.
For me this brand is totally new although it has been on the market since 1994! The brand was created in USA by Jane Iredale who wanted to come up with totally new idea that time – cosmetics based on micronized minerals, without fillers and binders (such as talc or mineral oil) and without chemical dyes or preservatives (like e.g. parabens or phthalates) that could be used also by medical esthetic industry after any beauty treatment.
Just read what Jane Iredale’s team is saying: ‘’The most beautiful cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin. That’s why everything we develop is a true extension of skin care. Our makeup is not just a refinement of conventional makeup; it’s a new technology. It’s so effective it is recommended by plastic surgeons, dermatologists and skin care professionals.’’
As the brand has become extremely popular, you will find a whole range of products now – starting on foundations, shadows, liquid liners, blushes, mascara, primers, concealers and finishing on facial sprays to set up mineral make up base.
The Jane Iredale line “is a highly-sophisticated blend of minerals and pigments that are micro-pulverized, using proprietary technology and processes to form microscopic flat crystals. These crystals overlap each other on the skin to form a filter that allows the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from air-borne pollutants. The staying power of the minerals is so great that they rarely need a touch-up during the day. And because these silky-feeling powders are water resistant, they won’t crease or smear even during the most strenuous exercise.”
So a part of medical esthetic specialist, these products could be offered by beauty specialists and their salons too. This brand has finally entered to Ireland thanks to iiaa international who provide whole range of these products on UK and Irish market. Unfortunately is not easy yet to find them here as you need to call them and ask about Irish place to buy them. Hhhmmm I don’t find it very handy;/ hopefully this information will appear quite soon on their web page Till know you can by them of course on line but as I’ve never tried them before I would definitely would like to test some colors, texture and also additionally be advised by beauty specialist regarding to the right chose. So for now online option is not for me! Do any of you know where I can get them in Dublin? If yes, please let me know as I’m really interesting in trying them on my skin! Why?
See below a brief of Jane Iredale’s cosmetics adventages to understand why I really want to try them so badly 🙂 :
√ Made of micronized minerals, no preservatives, no fillers, no blinders, no chemical dyes
√ Contain water resist SPF 20, formulated with the chemical-free sunscreen actives titanium dioxide and zinc oxide
√ Non-comedogenic (doesn’t block pores) and oil-free
√ 4 in – base, foundation, powder and concealer all in one
√ Not tested on animals (certified by PETA), suitable for vegetarians, contains beeswax and carmin in some products – which may be not suitable for vegans
√ Minimum allergy risk – don’t contain sensitizers that other cosmetics do. In fact, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are anti-inflammatories and may help calm the skin. Additionally all of this products have undergone sensitivity testing in an FDA-approved laboratory with no sensitivity recorded
√ Pigments made from micronized minerals only
√ Just a little of cosmetic is needed to get good, natural coverage
