The kind folks at Suzanne Somers Organics send me a gift card to purchase products from her new line of organic make up in order to facilitate this review.
I was so impressed with an ad that I saw recently about Suzanne’s line of organic cosmetics that I just had to try them.
More than natural, more than organic, Suzanne’s cosmetics are all Certified ToxicFree®. They contain no PEGs, no parabens, no synthetic fragrances, no chemical emulsifiers, no animal testing and completely gluten-free. You can learn more about her commitment to botanical active ingredients for the highest quality products to nurture your skin and the environment – all while providing incredible anti-aging benefits by visiting her website at www.suzannesomers.com
I chose a kit that contained three products for my skin color and I will review them below.
The first product that came in the kit was the Sheer Flawless Foundation in Porcelain-Light. I am extremely fair (you’d never know looking at me both of my parents were 100% Italian but they were) and I burn very easily so I stay out of the sun. People tell me it has served me well as they don’t believe I am 62 years old, however, other parts of my body are aging and it shows LOL.
The foundation went on very smoothly and covered well. I don’t have the best facial skin, I’ve always had an issue with breakouts from a teen, but I do my best to stay away from product that contain tons of chemicals (and most make up products do) so when I found out that Suzanne’s line has no chemical additives I was thrilled. Her foundation contains natural organic ingredients like soothing Aloe Leaf Juice, Tea Tree, Jojoba and Grape Seed Oils, antioxidant-rich super juice blend includes Pomegranate, Goji, Acai, Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry. Nothing but good ingredients to nourish your skin. Her foundations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances – I can’t even pronounce most of those things that she left out of her cosmetics but I can pronounce and I know exactly what is included in Suzanne’s line.
The next product that came with the kit is the Perfect Finish Concealer in light-medium shade which was recommended for my skin tone. This camouflaging concealer combines organic shea butter and Jojoba with soothing Lavender and Vitamin E for smooth, coverage. I used it under my eyes as I’ve recently developed dark circles which I’ve never had before. I have to assume it has something to do with one of the medications I take but this concealer is wonderful. It went on smoothly and evenly unlike other’s I have tried that crack and cake up.
The next product in the kit was the Sheer pressed Powder in light-medium shade. This pressed powder is amazing. So sheer and light you cannot even tell it’s been applied. Unlike other brands that I have tried in the past that make you look like a ghost, Suzanne’s pressed powder worked amazingly well all day to keep the foundation from running or fading. Unlike most pressed powders – which use harmful chemical petroleum binders that suffocate the skin and settle into lines and wrinkles – Suzanne uses rich, organic Jojoba Oil combined with mineral powders, allowing the skin to breathe while creating a flawless finish on a range of complexion tones.
The kit also included a wonderful “powder brush” and a zippered case to keep it all in.
I found the products reasonably priced and they are easy to order on line at Suzanne’s website www.suzannesomers.com You can also find other products that Suzanne manufacturers and sells at that same website address.
I do have one negative – I’m sorry Suzanne! The make up has a distinct smell and that’s probably one of the natural ingredients. It’s not a bad odor it’s a clean smell but I tend to shy away from anything with scents. I’m really very sensitive to them. It’s not horrible and I don’t think it would stop me from purchasing these products again because I really like the line. However the scent seems to fade as you apply the products to your skin.
You all know I am 100% honest when I do a review and I tell it like it is. These are my “personal” observations about the products. As I always tell you when I do a review your experience (and opinion) with any product may be different than mine.
