If you were stuck on an island and had only one makeup item, what would it be? One of the popular makeup choices is mascara. Being stuck on an island is no reason to sacrifice long, luscious lashes.
Most women wear mascara every day. With it being used around the delicate eye area, it is important to be sure that you’re using a safe, healthy formula. The run-of-the-mill mascara you find contains petro-chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde releasers, mercury, and phthalates. These are all toxic ingredients that you do not want flaking into your eyes.
Mercury, in particular, is a neurotoxin that scientific studies have shown to cause damage to the nervous system. Placing any amount of mercury near my eye is just too close for comfort. Fortunately, there are cosmetic brands that have mascaras formulated without these harsh ingredients.
I have been on the hunt for a healthy mascara that works just as well as some of the conventional mascaras that I had grown accustomed to. I recently purchased the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara and fell in love.
Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara contains none of the before-mentioned toxic ingredients including sulfates, synthetic frangrance, GMOs, or triclosan . It also is made with argan oil which is great for conditioning your lashes.
It comes with a huge applicator brush which is perfect for thickening lashes. I applied two coats without any clumping. It lasted my entire ten hour day without flaking, smearing, or smudging. Best of all, I felt good about not having a potentially harmful product on my eyes.
