Beauty Bites: 100% Pure Cosmetics (and Giveaway!)

I'm all about trying out new beauty goodies, and this week, it's 100% Pure. For those who may not be familiar, 100% Pure lives up to the name in every sake - it's 100% green (all the packaging is made from recycled aluminum and paper and all the printing on the packing is even made from non-toxic soy & vegetable ink!), it's 100% cruelty free, and all the products are made from 100% biodegradable formulas. Needless to say, 100% Pure is healthy for us and the earth. Not bad, right? So, it's no surprise that I was pretty excited to try out some products from the line.
Argan Oil Hydration Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30

I like to keep this one in my bag, for all the on-the-go moments. Not only does it heal dry areas, but it has SPF 30, which is so important for my moments in the sun. I have to admit that I sometimes forget to wear sunscreen on my face, so having a product that acts as a safeguard against the sun and a moisturizer is key. The product is a bit on the heavier side, so I apply small amounts and build up.

Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

I am a sucker for eye creams. Right now, I've started using this one, which I was told is 100% Pure's most popular one! I've only been using it for a few days, so I can't yet give you the scoop on my results, but I will say that in the few days I've used it I really do like it. It's creamy and soothing - my under-eye puffiness does appear to lighten up after use, so I'm excited for what my skin will look like after four weeks of use. Fun tip: I like to pop my eye creams and eye patches in the fridge for 10-15 minutes before applying. This is my secret beauty step for days I wake up with crazy bags after a night of no sleep. Try it and thank me later :)

Fruit Pigmented Powder Blush in "Healthy"

I love this soft shade - it's perfect for giving my skin a subtle hint of pink. I try to keep my blush on the softer side (unless I'm trying to make a statement), because I have naturally rosy cheeks, and when I get warm, I get tomato face. Not cute. So, just as personal rule, I keep my cheeks soft and define my cheekbones with a warm bronzer. This shade is called "Healthy" and it's a coral bronze color, which is exactly what I need. What's super cool about this blush is it's colored with fruit and vegetable pigments - how rad is that?

Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze in "Raspberry"

Okay, by now you know that I love lip tints. I wear lip glosses more than I wear lipstick (just preference), and I find that glazes are the perfect in-between. This one is my new favorite. It glides on smoothly, and moisturizes like crazy. The glaze is fruit-pigmented and made with a base of avocado and cocoa butter. So, not only am I nourishing my lips, but I'm also treating them with vitamins and antioxidants (hello, softer lips!).
