A beauty product that is good for my skin and even better for the environment

Beauty doesn't have to cost a lot, nor does it have to be in fancy packaging. In fact, beauty can actually be good for the environment, good for the animals, and good for your skin.

I have been searching for a new foundation and have tried just about every organic, all natural makeup line there is without spending a fortune. Although many of these products looked good on the outside, once they came in contact with my skin I didn't like it. Either the color was always wrong or the makeup caused my skin to breakout.

Being a huge fan of LUSH Cosmetics and their wonderful bath and body products, I spent some time looking over the other products available. Well, what do you know - they make a foundation!

Not just any foundation, but a colour supplement that works three ways. Dab on as a concealer, blend with moisturizer for a tinted glow, or use alone as a full coverage foundation. Last weekend I went over to LUSH Cosmetics at Fashion Island to check is out. The staff there is so friendly and always spends time answering all my questions. I never feel as though I'm rushed - like they need to move on to the next person.

I was matched for my color and happily bought a jar of Colour Supplements in Dark Yellow (along with some other things). The price is reasonable, the packaging is recycled, it is mineral-oil free, and best of all ... no animal testing or animal products of any kind.

Infused with fresh rose petals to calm redness and a natural sunscreen, titanium dioxide, this is hands down one of the best foundations I have used in a very long time.

I have worn it both alone and mixed with my moisturizer for 3 days now. My skin tone is even, no redness, no pigmentation, and I don't even feel like I have makeup on. Kudos to LUSH Cosmetics for offering a beauty product that is good for my skin and even better for the environment.

Don't be fooled by fancy packaging and big name ingredients. Keep it simple. Keep it natural.
