Even though I don’t wear much makeup (or hardly ever on a daily basis), one of the #1 main things I have to have in my minimalist, severely lacking, pathetically sized make-up regime is blush.  I would liken my love of blush to be akin to Kathy’s love of lip gloss, and lip balm.   Though unlike her I don’t have a billion containers of blush lying around.   Especially since greening my make-up collection most of it is powder and I don’t really want to take the risk of my blush exploding in my handbag.    But I need blush.  It makes me feel alive and happy, in an otherwise, very pale existence.  I love having a sun kissed look.

But then! Oh!  Revolution Organics came into my life in the form of Freedom Glow Beauty Balm.   It’s a lip color, it’s an eye color, it’s a blush!   It’s a multi purpose bit of heaven in a tube.   Made from cold pressed olive oil and organic beeswax, it goes on really smooth and blends in perfectly.   So I don’t ever worry about looking like a kewpie doll.    I haven’t used it on my lips yet (I’m horrible with remembering lip color or gloss), but the sun-kissed color I purchased is perfect for giving you the rosy look to your lips, whereas bronze would be perfect for a night on the town.

Revolution Organics has great products that are nearly guilt free (the highest rating in skin deep on any of their products is a 3, which isn’t bad at all), and they’ve really cornered the market with this product because I haven’t seen anything like it anywhere else.

Get it: You can order Freedom Glow Beauty Balm, directly from Revolution Organics website.  The price is a little steep at $34, but it’s a quality product, and I’m considering ordering another just to have one to keep in my handbag.

Skin Deep Rating: 3

I have several lip gloss reviews coming up and wanted to kick them off this the new glosses from Revolution Organics.  I learned about Revolution Organics a few years ago when I fell in love with their 22+ Uses All Over Body Balm.  Their motto is “Guilt Free Glam” and with good reason.  These products not only deliver but they do so without toxins and chemicals.  I know I’ve said it before but I am a lip gloss girl.  I have thousands of them.  Good, bad and great ones. So when I learned that Revolution Organics recently added lip gloss to their arsenal of products I was skipping with glee.

The technical stuff: These are made with natural and 85% certified organic ingredients.  It’s free of chemicals, mineral oils, petroleum, sulfates and parabens.  It’s packaged in recyclable, biodegradable materials and uses mineral pigments to create the lush colors. I was really impressed with the ingredient content in these glosses because it’s hard to find a gloss that delivers the way lip glosses we were used to, using only natural ingredients.  But Revolution Organics has figured it out.  Using plant proteins and extracts they actually promote healthy lips with antioxidants while keeping them hydrated and moisturized.  They also don’t test these pretty products on animals.

The beauty stuff: They come in 5 great colors and they are all sheer but colorful enough to wear every day (or night). Judging by the vibrancy in the tube you’d think it painted on like a lipstick but in reality it smooths on a sheer rich color that isn’t too over powering. My favorite for my skin coloring is Integrity which is a pretty rose with a subtle gold shimmer.  I can get away with the bright hot pink too for a night out.  It’s pink enough to compliment without making me look like a clown.  The clincher? They aren’t sticky. So many times have I bought a “natural” lip gloss only to put it on and it feel like plastic wrap on my lips. These are truly natural and truly comfortable to wear.

What I also appreciate is their packaging.  I’m a sucker for great packaging.  And while I try to buy only natural and safer cosmetics and skin care for myself, I admit I feel a pang of envy when I see a line with great packaging – wishing it wasn’t laden with petroleum and parabens. But with Revolution Organics – you get the best of both worlds.  Natural and safe and looking chic at the same time.  Revolution Organics is one of my top choices. I’m a customer for life.

Get it: You can purchase their new Freedom Lip Glosses from their website Revolution Organics or from other online retailers like Saffron Rouge or Upurea.com

revolution organicsAs a working mom on the go, I am always interested in finding safe products that are multi-purpose. So when I found Revolution Organics I went crazy over their All-Over Body Balm.  This hefty tube of balm has over 22 possible uses.  How can it get better than that?  I’d rather replace the tubes of hand lotions, lip balms, cuticle balms and baby cream in my diaper bag with this ONE  handy compact tube.  It has a light citrus scent and really is a wonderful moisturizer.  I use this as a lip balm, rub it on my hands and cuticles, relieve wind chapped kid cheeks and it can help with frizz when you’re in a pinch.

Revolution Organics uses no synthetic ingredients, parabens, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals and they don’t test on animals.  They are also certified USDA Organic which is only reserved for products with 95% organic ingredients.  Now that’s something I can live with!  After trying and failing with many Certified Organic products either due to their lack of performance or the overpowering smell (Aveda Organics I’m talking about you) I have really fallen in love with Revolution Organics.

They also offer a few other gret products including an All-Over Skin Creme (I keep in on my desk for hands and elbows during my workday) and a yummy All Over Lip Balm that I’m dying to try.

Get It: Pick up any Revolution Organics products at Saffron Rouge, Lilou Organics or on Beauty.com
