When it comes to make up, I have re-evaluated my priorities when my daughter started to become interested in make up. Being more informed now than ‘back in my teenage years’ where medicine was prescribed for acne prone skin, we know now that skin absorbs what you put on it, right into the bloodstream and our bodies.
And this is when I came across this wonderful brand from the US called RMS Beauty I recommend for everyone starting with your teenager. A brand created by renown make up artist Rose-Marie Swift, who after her own health problems arouse because of the use of toxic make-up in her job, she wanted her collection to be non-toxic, to offer wellness and beauty in one. Determined to not only heal herself but the millions of women unknowingly purchasing hazardous beauty products off the shelves Rose Marie started her own line, RMS Beauty. Centred around showcasing your skins natural glow, the entire line is made with raw, food-grade, and organic anti-aging ingredients.
Here are some of our favourites (my daughter and me share the things we like):
Two in one at least, the concealer covers, minimizes pores as well as hydrates the skin minimizing the pores.
The same shades go on lips and cheeks, hence RMS call it lip2cheek, all using certified organic ingredients, free from gluten, GMO, soy and nanoparticles.
RMS Beauty’s balm, infused with certified organic vanilla, multi-purpose salve will soften and smooth lips, cuticles and the delicate area under your eyes with its blend of natural oils, butters and Beeswax.
The luminizer, number one seller in Japan, is the quickest way to illuminate the skin. As seen online, take your beauty cues from fan Gisele Bündchen and dab it on your collarbones and shoulders too.
Formulated with coconut oil and cocoa butter, enriched with Beeswax, RMS Beauty is safe to use, leaving your skin feeling nourished and refreshed. Their simple recycable glass jars come in the perfect size for handbags, airplane moments and busy Mums and teenagers on the go.
We are grateful to have people like Rose-Marie Swift out there who care for our beauty and soul and for the environment.
