Urban Minerals: Product Review

Urban Minerals
Today I am grateful to be 39.  Yeah, I'm serious!  Admittedly, I miss my perky pre-breast feeding boobies from my 20s, and I could do without a lot of the lines that have developed on my face.  But you know what?  I'm stronger and fitter than I've ever been, and more importantly, I am wiser than I was in my 20s and early 30s.  This wisdom has translated into more inner peace and greater self-acceptance.  And I wouldn't trade that for all the smooth skin and bouncy boobies in the world.

 I don't know about you, but it really freaks me out when I hear all the weird toxic shit there is in a lot of personal care products.  I just don't get why our government allows this.  Hello Health Canada!  Get the carcinogens out of our make-up and hair, and body products please!

If you are committed to using natural products, you are going to love this one.  Urban Minerals is a local company (in Toronto) that was started by Sarah Sumnauth, who handcrafts each jar of loose foundation she sells.  She offers 30 shades, but can also create custom tones to match the skin tone of any woman.

I was a bit hesitant to try it at first because my, ahem, mature skin, doesn't really need powder settling into lines and making me look older.  These days I'm into super moisturizing, smoothing products.  But I have to tell you a client of mine last week told me she didn't think I could be any older than 32.  That made my day!!

Anyways, I am pleased to say that Urban Minerals is quite impressive for a powder foundation.  I don't find it accentuates lines at all.  The coverage is very light, however, so if you are used to using something a lot heavier, this may not be enough for you.  But for anyone looking for an all-natural alternative to conventional cosmetics, this totally rocks!  You can order some here.
