Switching over to green products can be extremely difficult. After all, what is green? Green really has no definition, at least not the way that organic does. There is no such thing as certified green. However, when we think of green, we think of organic, recyclable, and using minimal packaging. In essence, this is truly what green is. It’s good for the environment and for your skin too, which is exactly what a good green beauty product should be. All three of these qualities (organic, recyclable, and minimal packaging) are important when you’re shopping for green products. Firstly, organic ingredients are much gentler than regular ingredients (you know, the ones you can’t pronounce). Secondly, recycling is extremely important. When you buy a green product, you should know that when you’re done with it, that it can be completely recycled. Finally, green beauty products should use minimal packaging. Companies that use plastic wrap, boxes, and more are simply wasteful. Quite honestly, all you really need is the container the product comes in.
I recently decided to switch over to more green household products, including my beauty products. I honestly thought finding green beauty products would be nearly impossible, but I actually found a brand that creates numerous green and organic beauty products: Miessence. Miessence can be found all over the Internet, especially at one of my favorite websites: BuyGreen.com. BuyGreen.com is chalk full of green and organic products, from household necessities, to yes, beauty products! Since I’ve tried Miessence products before, that when I needed new mascara, I knew the brand to go to. Miessence has their very own organic mascara. It’s made with jojoba oil and shea butter and has the thickening and strengthening properties of beeswax. Not to mention, all the ingredients are organic and long-lasting, which is what I was looking for in a good mascara. I decided to buy the Miessence Mascara from the BuyGreen.com website for $22.95 in pure black.
Upon receiving my Miessence Organic Mascara, I decided to try it out to see if it lived up to its promises. I decided to add it into my beauty routine. I put on all my other makeup before I applied my mascara. I opened the tube, which comes with your normal mascara wand and swiped it over my lashes, both the bottom and top. I was surprised at first. It was clumpy like normal mascara. The Miessence Organic Mascara went on incredibly smooth and sleek. Finally, it actually lasted all day! I was so surprised. Since I am a contact wearer, my contacts tend to make my eyes water, which in turn makes my mascara run occasionally. Luckily, my Miessence Mascara lasted all day. No running, no clumpy, just thick, beautiful lashes.
Overall, I would rate this product a 5/5. Firstly, Miessence Mascara is 100 percent organic and recyclable. It’s also a great mascara in general. It stayed on all day with no running and my lashes looked gorgeous. I would recommend this product to anyone searching for green and organic beauty products that really work.
