Have I got a treat for you today! This post is for the moms. Oh moms… Let me share with you my TOP 10 FAVORITE 100% Pure products from Alex & Von.
Have you heard of 100% Pure products? No? Sit down, take a second, listen.
100% Pure formulates synthetic-free, fragrance-free, paraben-free and toxin free beauty products. They use the most concentrated formulas possible without the use of water, thickeners, emulsifiers or any other fillers. Inspired by her garden, Susie Wang created 100% Pure’s cosmetics line to complement her healthy lifestyle. Made with pigments from fruits and vegetables along with nature’s best resources, 100% Pure marries all-natural ingredients with high-end cosmetic formulas to create beauty in a class of its own. 100% Pure is the first and only cosmetics colored from antioxidant rich fruit and vegetable pigments (patents pending).
100% Pure products are never tested on animals. It is the company’s mission to help and save animals. They have rescued and placed 21 dogs in loving homes last year alone, as well as provided financial aid to those who need medical aid for their pets. 100% Pure’s long term goal is to open up an animal sanctuary to further help their mission to help animals.
Let me share with you my 10 favorites!
1. Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
This is one of my favorites! Coffee Bean? Caffeine? Yes!
Anti-inflammatory, caffeine rich green tea and coffee de-puffs and reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles. Concentrated with potent anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants, and nourishing rosehip oil. Truly, 100% Pure.
2. Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze
Gorgeous colors from fruit pigments in a moisturizing base of avocado and cocoa butters. 100% natural formula will give your lips a sheer wash of fruit pigmented color while nourishing your lips with vitamins and antioxidants.
