Are you looking to incorporate healthy cosmetics into your every day routine? I teamed up with EWG VERIFIED™ to help spread the word about how easy it is to make better beauty choices. With no research required, EWG VERIFIED, makes healthier shopping easier for you and your family. EWG VERIFIED™ products include cosmetics like foundations, blushes, eye shadows and eye liners, lipsticks and lip glosses; skin care products including cleansers and moisturizers; shampoos and soaps; and many more.
What does EWG VERIFIED™ mean?
Among other things, products must:
• Be free of EWG’s ingredients of concern
• Fully disclose all ingredients
• Follow good manufacturing practices
You can sign up for their newsletter to receive healthy living tips, shopping guides and promotions. Want to know which of your favorite products made the mark? You can check out a list here.
I was recently sent some new to me beauty products to test out and share my favorites with you. All of the products you see in the below photo have all been EWG Verified and have been marked with their official EWG symbol. EWG VERIFIED products are fully transparent, disclosing all ingredients – even disclosing all of the chemicals in “fragrance”. Let’s check out what was in the box (Stay tuned to the end – There is a giveaway to win ALL of the items!) (Side note – I haven’t tried every single product, but will share my thoughts on the ones I have tried)

This is my first time hearing about EWG, but I’m glad to know something like that is there. It can be so hard to get ahold of good ingredient information. I love the look of these products, too. That highlighter stick looks amazing!
I really like the highlighter. I have struggled to find the perfect one!
Emily Draher says
This is awesome. I try my best to make the best decisions possible when it comes to bath and body and beauty products, but sometimes it takes a TON of work to research and educate yourself. I love that EWG can do that work for me!
Brooke @ Blushing Noir says
This brand sounds so fabulous! That illuminator, though!
Very informative! I will definitely be visiting their website.
All of these products looks wonderful!! That lipstick, especially! <3
