Erth mineral eyeshadow review

I received these eyeshadows from Erth Mineral Makeup sometime ago but didn’t experiment with them until about a month or two ago.  Initially, I found the violet, sea & moss in the same order as the picture above too light for my liking but recently, I’m loving these sparkly shades for a soft and sheer hue.

Having used Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil for eight weeks now, it’s time I review the product and also let you know how this product stacks up against Renew Certified 100% Organic Rose Hip Oil which I was using end of last year.

Facts on Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil
Trilogy Certified Organic Rosehip Oil is extracted from the seeds and fruit of certified organic, wild-grown rosehips and contains a powerful blend of natural nutrients including 80% essential fatty acids (oleic, linoleic and linolenic), vitamin E and the antioxidant lycopene, all well known for their ability to promote skin repair and rejuvenation of skin cells.

The right order to apply skincare products

2359305854 c31dcf3094 o The right order to apply skincare products

I have received several emails regarding the right order to apply skin care products especially regarding prescription topicals and here are information from two sources I have gathered.

The first, is from the book “Your Future Face” by Dr Dennis Gross, who is a dermatologist as well as the founder of the M.D. Skincare product line.  According to Dr Gross, one of the keys to maximizing the benefits of any product in our daily skincare regimen is to apply products with a thinner consistency before the thicker more creamy ones, no matter what their active ingredients are.  This is because products with heavy consistencies can block lighter-weight ones from penetrating the skin and doing their job.
