TerraGloss by Alba
The best allergy product makeup choice I've tried
Ever tried to find an allergy product in the makeup aisle? It's pretty hard to do. Makeup continues to be one area where I have had to buy very expensive alternatives, and have often been very disappointed.
As a result, when I see something interesting in makeup at the health food store, I'm likely to try it. It's not just that I do these product reviews for a living; it's also that I like to look nice, and I'd like to do that without putting my skin or health at risk.
I'm particularly picky about my lipstick. After all, anything that goes on your lips is going to go in your mouth. So, I check ingredient lists carefully to be sure that I'm not ingesting things I don't want, including allergens.
When I noticed the new TerraGloss lipglosses from Alba, I noticed right away that the display rack said that the products were "free of artificial colors, petrolatum, mineral oil, phthalates or parabens." I liked that right away. The tagline for the product was "safe, smart cosmetics." That appealed to me too. However, I also had to like the gloss! I bought the sienna color.
Right away, I noticed how smooth this allergy product was on my lips. It definitely moisturizes. However, the gloss also has a lovely shimmering color to it - definitely not the tired colors of many healthy products. This gloss has pizzazz. It also contains both vitamin E and shea butter, to really keep the skin of your lips in good condition.
Did you ever use flavored lipgloss when you were a teenager? I did. These glosses have natural vanilla flavor. Hey, if you have to wear something on your mouth, it's always a bonus if it tastes good!
My husband, like many men, is not really a fan of lipstick. He likes the way it looks, but he doesn't want to walk away wearing it. However, this one passed the kiss test! He liked it because it didn't feel fake or have an unpleasant or artificial taste.
I might just wear lipgloss more often.
