My pal Dilara is definitely the most environmentally responsible friend I have. She even makes her own laundry detergent! She’s also a natural product aficionado, so who better to review the Bioelements All Things Pure line? Here’s the skinny:
I recycle. I eat locally-grown produce and meat. I was bringing my own bags to the grocery store before it was fashionable. I’ve been known to smear an avocado on my face for the sake of beauty. Needless to say, when I got a hold of Bioelements All Things Pure line, I couldn’t wait to try it!
The Bioelements All Things Pure line is certified by the Natural Products Association. That means each of these products meets the standards for natural ingredients, safety, responsibility and sustainability. While some beauty products boast about not testing on animals, these guys go above and beyond that by vowing not to use artificial colorants or synthetic fragrances. They also package their items in glass bottles instead of plastic which is much more environmentally friendly and protects the longevity of the product. The box itself outlines the ingredients one by one along with a description of its beauty benefits. And get this—all the products have about 12 ingredients or less. With so many scary stories you hear in the beauty industry, it makes me feel good to know that I know what I am putting on my face each day.
Very rarely do I find an entire line where I find all the products are to my liking. I’ll be honest–the cleanser didn’t seem like much to me at first glance, but after one use I was a believer. It not only removed the day’s dirt but it took off my eye make up too! My favorite product in the line was the Eye Oil. For my desert of a face, this stuff was a much-welcomed oasis. Make sure you only use this one at night though. As the name states, it is oil so if you try to put eye make-up on afterwards it will slide right off! One pump gives you much more oil than you need for both of your eyes so I would massage the extra on the rest of my face or my neck. But then one night I had an epiphany and rubbed it into my cuticles. Hello hands! Following it up is the luscious moisturizer with just the perfect amount of weight to it. My only qualm is you would need to pair the moisturizer with an SPF or only wear it at night since it does not contain any sun protection. Bioelements also has a scrub included in the line that does a great job of exfoliating. However, even though it is gentle, I would suggest only using it once a week.
Whether you are looking for a product that is natural or environmentally-friendly—or both—this is a great skin care line. Even if you aren’t to the point where you bring your own bags to the supermarket, I am sure you will appreciate pure, honest products that are effective.
