Mascara and Lavender Oil

For all the Mascara lovers out there, I love this little tip.

Is your mascara feeling a little dry or that it is starting to dry up and you are not ready to give up the tube?!? Add a drop of Lavender Essential Oil to your tube and make it moist and extend mascara life. Not only does lavender promote hair growth, but given that it is antimicrobial, it helps in killing bacteria that can buildup on your brush.

Make sure you are using a reputable company’s essential oils and mascara. The essential oil industry is an unregulated industry much like the cosmetic and skincare industry and so much junk is popping up everywhere. From all my research the two safest and highest performing are from Beautycounter and doTERRA.

Lengthening Mascara – Wink big.
Made with natural fibers, this advanced formula increases volume by 385%* to create fuller, more dramatic-looking lashes. The hourglass brush curls, separates, and plumps for high-drama glam–without clumping, flaking or smudging. Cleaner, plant-derived ingredients, like carnauba wax and rice bran wax, replace harmful emollients, while bataua oil helps soften lashes. $36

Lengthening Mascara – Lust-worthy length.
Newly reformulated for easier removal and zero flaking. Add alluring length and definition without the harmful ingredients. Smudge-proof, this new formula stays put all day, yet can be removed in the blink of an eye. Nourishing botanical ingredients, such as organic bataua oil and carnauba wax, help condition lashes.

Easy on the Eyes
Carbon black, a pigment used in mascaras to create the deep black color, has been linked to a range of adverse health effects. Mascara shouldn’t be that scary. Beautycounter Volumizing and Lengthening Mascaras are pigmented with naturally-occurring iron oxides.
