Mascara Review and GIVEAWAY!!!

OK, so generally I don't like to shop or promote huge businesses.  I really prefer to support smaller businesses.  I have always felt this way and even more so now that my hubby and I have our own business.  However, this review is an exception to my rule.

I have been on a mission to remove all bad things from our home, from food to toiletries and more without adding to our monthly spending budget.  That is no easy feat!  So we started little by little, first with food, then moving around the house to cleaning supplies, laundry and dishwasher detergents, hand soaps, and toiletries.  My make-up is the last thing I want to change because it only affects me, not the family.  My old mascara was shot and I thought it would be the perfect time to try something new and healthy!

I did some research to find that there are many organic mascara's out there, but the price point is pretty high, with some tubes costing over $30!  OK, so not too outrageous, but still.  Then I found Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara, ringing in at just under $10.  I figured it was too good to be true, but thought it was worth a try.  I am thrilled I did!

I really love it.  Physicians Formula promises that this mascara is 100% Free of Harsh Chemicals, Synthetic Preservatives, Parabens, Clumping, Smudging, Flaking, Fibers & Dyes.  That is a big promise!  Oh, and a little more...100% Recyclable Eco-Brush defines each lash with ultra-soft plastic bristles. I love that it is healthy and that it works well for me.

Check out the pictures below that I took before, during and after using this mascara.
