In the hunt to find natural and/or organic beauty products, 100% Pure made sure to grab my attention with ingredients that were right up my alley!
100 % Pure strives to provide us with products that are free of any of the harmful toxins that are common in other cosmetics. Their mission is to create cosmetics made with high quality, environmentally conscious ingredients that are also not detrimental to our skin or body. Their factories are run by solar energy and the packaging is made by using 100% recycled paper. And did I mention, they are 100% cruelty free?! It doesn’t get any better than that!
Eager to try one of their products, I decided to start with the Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream in size 1 fl. oz. / 29ml. Here is my quick review:
The product is packaged in a cylinder shaped tube – cute, simple, and easy to open. The tube comes with a pump. I wasn’t really thrilled about the pump though, because it takes a while for the product to pump out. I’m unsure of whether it was luck of the draw (maybe I received a damaged tube) or if all of their 1 oz. containers have this problem. I am definitely going to purchase again so I will let you know what I find.
The smell is just AMAZING! It smells like a vanilla chai latte or something! The smell is just faint enough that is doesn’t bother me like other cosmetics that have heavy fragrance. I used to get headaches from smelling those products all day. Not with this one!
The texture is smooth with a very light consistency making it the perfect cream to apply under eyes before applying makeup. I have oily skin and this product does not leave my skin oily at all.
When I first started using the product, I didn’t experience immediate satisfaction. Maybe as a result of my impatience, brands need to wow me almost immediately with results to keep me interested, lol. But for some reason, I just kept at it. I applied morning and at night before bed. After about 2 weeks I started noticing real results – I understand that may be fast to some of you. I was beginning to see a more even tone and tighter skin in the area spanning from under my eyes to my cheekbones. It also made under my eyes seem bright and more alive! Aside from the pump, I am very happy with this product. If you are suffering from bags or dark circles under your eyes, I highly recommend that you try this product out. And if you’ve already been using it, feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comment box below!
