Eco: Mineral Foundation

23 May 2010 Tags: , , , One Comment

Since I tried the bare id minerals a few months ago I wanted to try another brand of mineral foundation. Don’t get me wrong, the bareminerals were okay and didn’t irritate my skin (the prickly brush is another issue) but it wasn’t doing my skin wonders either, so I went looking for a more natural formulation that is recommended for red, irritated skin. The first mineral foundation I tried since then was Eco’s mineral foundation powder shade 10. First off, the colour was perfect for me, unlike the guess work that went into my id-minerals purchase. I think that even a slightly off shade of mineral make-up can sometimes look okay but this shade was perfect. I didn’t realize that the other stuff didn’t match me too well until I tried Eco. Since I have a slightly oily t-zone I tried the matte formulation, and I don’t get even a spot of shine all day.
From my research I have found that Australian mineral make-up is highly regarded, we have some excellent, independently produced brands and Eco is one of the shining stars of Australia’s mineral make-up scene. It’s made in beautiful Byron Bay with natural ingredients and not only didn’t irritate my skin but it also masked and soothed redness while I was wearing it. My skin could breath and actually felt like I wasn’t wearing make up at all (which is also the natural look it gives)
One of the best things about Eco is it’s refillable containers. Instead of buying a whole new foundation when you run out you can buy a cheaper refill, which helps your hip pocket and the environment. I have been loving Eco mineral foundation. Since switching to minerals I haven’t turned back. They are perfect for troublesome skin on either the dry or oily spectrum. I adore it and I’m proud that Australia makes such quality mineral make-up.

    [...] Best Mineral Make Up I have two products in mind for this category, both are fantastic but quite different. I have decided to go with Minerelle’s mineral foundation powder compact because not only does it feel great and protect problematic skin – it also looks fantastic and is one of the best products for masking rosacea (which is persistent skin redness). I wholeheartedly recommend this to *anyone* suffering rosacea and to anyone else actually. It is on the pricey side, but definitely worth it. The compact lasts ages and the coverage is so effective you don’t need to pile it on. It keeps the skin matt without drying it out. It also provides excellent protection from environmental allergens as well as containing ingredients that act as a physical sun block to protect the skin from the sun. I should mention that the other mineral make-up I was considering is eco minerals. Again, a lovely feeling product that covers well and protects the skin. I chose Minerelle as my favorite based on the convenience of the packaging and the way it is designed specifically with rosacea in mind – however eco minerals is just as good but for different reasons; they provide refills and use ecologically sound packaging, which may be a priority for you.
