100% Pure Love

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to transition to more natural beauty products.  As my old stuff is used up, I try and replace it with something more natural.  I haven’t transitioned very many products yet, but there are two that I have started using that I really like.  One is my favorite natural soap that I posted about a couple of weeks ago.  The other is my day face lotion:

The label is a little worn off but this is a bottle of Organic Pomegranate Antioxidant Hydration SPF 20 by 100% Pure.  100% Pure products are made without synthetic chemicals, preservatives, or artificial anything.  The products are made with food-grade ingredients and they never test on animals or use any animal ingredients (other than cruelty-free honey).  Read their About Page for more detailed information.

I found out about 100% Pure last fall in the Kind Life forums.  There’s a great thread over there on cruelty-free, all natural beauty products.  I was looking for an all-natural, vegetarian face lotion for day-time use and was actually having a difficult time finding one with SPF.  I’m not sure if it’s the nature of sunscreen that makes it difficult to use in all-natural products or what.  Maybe it’s difficult to make sunscreen without chemicals? 

Anyway I was very excited to find the pomegranate lotion at 100% Pure that included SPF 20.  I ordered it from Drugstore.com.  You can also buy it directly from their website.  The price is the same either way – $26 for 2 ounces.

At first I wasn’t sure I liked the consistency of the lotion.  It has a different feel to it, probably because it doesn’t have any chemicals or fillers!  But it wasn’t long before I was used to it, and now I really, really like it.  It’s not greasy at all and goes on smooth.  I think it’s helped my skin glow a little more.  🙂  I’ve been using this bottle for at least 4 months now, maybe more.  I can’t quite remember when I bought it.  It does cost a little more than drugstore brands, but I think it’s worth it.  Two ounces doesn’t seem like much, but it’s lasted me awhile. 

Since I liked this lotion so much, now I’m excited to try other products from 100% Pure!  I really want to try the Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream and the Fruit-Pigmented Cosmetics.

Has anyone else tried other 100% Pure products?  If so, can you recommend anything?  If not, what other natural face care products do you like?

Note:  I was not paid in any way, shape or form by 100% Pure to write this post.  The company did not send me a free bottle of lotion to try.  I bought this with my own funds and wanted to share it with you all!  If I am ever paid by a company to review a product I will be sure to say so up front.
