Mineral Hygienics: The Only Make-up You'll Ever Need

While browsing the make-up isles, you're thinking of all the things that you're looking for: foundation, concealer, primer, and powder. You see a multitude of those products as you look through the sections, so you begin to narrow down the things you want from your make-up: cruelty-free, not pore clogging, good coverage,  long lasting, few ingredients, sun protection, and the ability to make your skin look younger.

Nothing in the isles, or the store, has all of the things you're looking for, so you end up leaving with a vast array of products...and your bill has just gone sky high. Sound familiar?

Now what if I told you that you could get all of those things, including a primer, concealer, and foundation in ONE product? Welcome to Mineral Hygienics.

I have struggled with finding the 'right' make-up since I began wearing it at 13. Only using cruelty-free products cuts down on a huge chunk of the selection, and with skin like mine, acne problems were made worse by using most make-up. For the past eleven years, I have used hundreds of different products. Some made my face feel heavy, others looked oily, and most just didn't give me the coverage I wanted.

I'm really really fair you can see the blue of my veins. I swear, I look like Louis in "Interview with a Vampire" when I go into the sun, and I burn just as badly. Most of the products I have tried in the past wouldn't offer me the sun protection I needed, and the coverage was never enough to hide my dark under-eyes and blue veins.

So I was a bit skeptical when Mineral Hygienics claimed to be able to do just that. After all, it's just powder! No liquid, no applicators, nothing. Just a pot of powder, and a kabuki brush.

Despite the humble look of it, this is the BEST make-up I have ever used. I'm going to be so upset when it's gone. It covers, it's light, and best of all, it only takes me a minute to put it on! I can throw it on early in the morning, wear it all day, and it still looks just as good as when I put it on. Having oily skin, I thought that the powder would lump together and get gross after a while, but it just stays flawless!

Mineral Hygienics is made with only four all natural ingredients. That's right FOUR. It doesn't take much product to cover your skin either. Since it's a mineral make-up, it also won't clog your pores, and has actually helped my numerous  skin problems! Want proof?

Take a look at my own 'before' and 'after' photos.

 The first photo was taken in the morning, right after waking up. It's bad...I know. This was taken the day before I started using Mineral Hygienics. The second image was taken after two weeks of wearing the product. Not only that, but this was about 1 a.m., after getting home from a Civil War era ball! After a night of dancing, my make-up has stayed perfect.

Not only can you not see my horrible dark circles, you'll notice my acne problems have cleared up as well! Since there isn't anything to clog my pores, my skin can begin to look healthier and younger.

If you're looking for a make-up that has everything you could want, and is still easy and simple to apply for a woman on the go, Mineral Hygienics is perfect for you.

Love and Lightning Bugs,
