After noticing the increase in eyelash fall out during the removal of my mascara, I have been on the lookout for a natural alternative of mascara that functions as well as the commercialized ones but without the harsh chemicals. I have tried a few organic brands of mascaras before and found them to be average and a little pricey for their less than stellar performance. But I think I may have finally found my holy grail of natural mascaras in Dr. Hauschka’s Volumizing Mascara.
My eyelashes are relatively long, but over the years they seem to be not so densely packed as I remembered them to be as compared to when I was younger. I’m not sure if I’m just being insecure and paranoid, but it seems that as I got older in age, my eyelash drops easily. This happens when I wash my face or remove my eye makeup. I wouldn’t rule out the possibility of me being too rough when washing my face, because I tend to be that. But I’ve also heard complaints of other people’s eyelashes dropping due to certain eye cosmetics they’ve been using.

Jane Iredale is probably one of the earliest, if not the earliest cosmetic company to introduce a full line of makeup based on minerals. I read a lot about their products back when mineral makeup was the rage but the funny thing is, I never got to try them until now. If I recall correctly, I wasn’t too keen on some of the ingredients I saw and so I basically gave the products a miss back then.
