Let’s talk makeup! I am so, so, so far from being an expert on this topic you guys- but I have recently been in the process of switching over all of my makeup to Savvy Minerals chemical free makeup and have been absolutely loving the results, so I wanted to take the time today to share all about it with you!
“Lead, a neurotoxin, was found in 75 percent of all (products) tested — and ALL products contained the metals manganese, titanium and aluminum.
“Just finding these metals isn’t the issue; it’s the levels that matter,” S. Katharine Hammond, professor of environmental health sciences at UC Berkeley and lead investigator of the study, said in a press release. “Some of the toxic metals are occurring at levels that could possibly have an effect in the long term.”
The researchers say lipsticks and lip glosses may pose specific risks for consumers, because they are swallowed and absorbed little by little by those wearing them.”

Every Savvy Minerals product was carefully crafted so that you can feel absolutely fabulous about yourself and what you’re putting on your skin. Products developed with an unwavering standard of purity and quality, giving you a full variety of naturally derived products made without cheap fillers or synthetics—and that’s a beautiful thing!
If you haven’t scanned your makeup with the (free) Think Dirty app- do it! You are WORTH making this switch!
-Savvy Minerals are free from: talc, lead, bismuth, mineral oil, lead, mercury, parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, synthetic fragrances, and synthetic colorants!
-Savvy Minerals are made in the USA (the brushes are made in Italy).
-Savvy Minerals are cruelty-free, gluten-free, and mostly vegan (the lipsticks and lip glosses have beeswax, so they are not considered vegan).
-Savvy Minerals by Young Living uses Arrowroot Powder and Kaolin Clay. Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the skin and make the skin feel silky smooth. This is important because most mineral makeup uses bismuth, which is a metal mineral that – when worked into the pores – aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts.
-Savvy Minerals last ALL DAY LONG… seriously, ALL DAY LONG! You’ll look as fresh at midnight as you did at 9 AM!
All Savvy Mineral Starter Kits include:
1 misting spray
5 ml lavender oil
(there are currently 4 kits available based around 4 different foundation colors)
I have been using the “Warm 2” palette since this spring and can’t praise it enough! The embrace lip gloss is one of my favorite products in the world- along with lavender infused mascara and putting the foundation over the base of my glow serum (you can find that recipe in this post!)

I’m beyond thankful to have safe and healthy products to use, not only on myself, but my two daughters as well. I don’t have to worry about if they lick off their lip balm or gloss- I don’t have to feel nervous putting makeup on their eyes or their delicate skin. And I can feel confident as they grow into beautiful young women, that they will have the tools and products at their fingertips to help them gracefully grow into lovely ladies with products that won’t disrupt their hormones, health, and bodies.
I’m on the very best team, and every single person on our team is the nicest, full of all the oil life knowledge. If I don’t have an answer, someone on our team does, and that’s the kind of community I’m proud to be part of. We’re here to learn together, grow together, and focus on wellness for ourselves and our family!
