Mineral Hygienics Review & Giveaway

1 comment    

Although I was looking forward to trying out Mineral Hygienics mineral makeup, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical. They claim that their makeup is "perfect for all ages and skin types", that it "provides complete coverage that feels as light as air", as well as giving "a natural luminosity that lasts all day long." Yes, I was skeptical!

When the samples that I was provided for this review arrived within a few days, I was pleasantly surprised. I was equally pleased after opening the box. This is how my items were packaged:
I love the black crimped shredded paper with the delicate pink bag containing the cosmetics nestled inside.

These are the FULL-sized "samples" that I was provided to do my review:

Kabuki Brush, Light & Fairly Light Foundation, Cool Kiss Bronzer, & Translucent Finishing Powder.

It also came with these:
From top to bottom: "Tips, Tricks, Colors, Brushes, How to's...Everything You Need to Know...", Application Guide, and Product Information Guide.

When I was younger, I used to work at a cosmetic company as a trained color consultant, customer service rep, and I also handled consultant orders. Needless to say, I wore quite a bit of makeup while working here. I did get it at a discount, after all! I wish I could find one of my older pictures to show you just how much! As the years went on, I had children and started wearing less and less to the point where I was only wearing tinted moisturizer on my Rosacea red cheeks along with a bit of foundation and powder with a bit of mascara if I went out. As a trained consultant, I KNEW the importance of wearing a foundation to keep pollutants out and moisture in. I KNEW the importance of SPF protection. But, I was no longer heeding it!

I needed to know immediately if this product really worked like it was supposed to. My curiosity was getting the better of me. So, I opened it all up. My cameras have died on me so I'm using my cell to take pictures. They aren't the best and somehow, because of the angle of the phone, the lighting is different in the before and after picture. The pictures were taken within a matter of minutes of each other though. I could really tell a difference in my cheek area especially!

This is what my face looked like before-hand:
 This is what it looked like after applying the Mineral Hygienics:

There is still some noticeable redness from the Rosacea, but I think if I had used the Belmish (counteracts Redness) Wonder Concealer, it would have almost covered it completely.

I have nothing but good to say about Mineral Hygienics. I am hooked. I thought it would take a long time to apply it with all the buffing, but it literally only takes several minutes to apply the foundation, enhancer, and powder. I have an oily T-zone which normally requires several powder touch ups throughout the day. The first day that I used the mineral makeup, I had to reapply the translucent powder on my nose. From then on, I have not had to touch it up AT ALL! My makeup looks as fresh at night before I go to bed as it did right after I applied it. I also forgot to wash my face before going to bed one night (I know, I know...shame on me), and in the morning my face still looked natural and glowing and didn't feel goopy at all. Normally when I wash my face, my snow white washcloths are covered in makeup from the foundation. Not so with the Mineral Hygienics. Most of the minerals are absorbed into the skin, so there is hardly anything to come off onto the washcloth. I have 2 younger children who both frequently touch my face. With the minerals, I wasn't worried about them rubbing it off. My son got my face wet while wearing it, and it stayed put. It also didn't rub off on my clothing at all like regular foundation has a tendency to do.

I also want to state that this company has some of the best customer service that I have experienced in a long time! I asked more than a few questions about the product and all of my emails were answered in a very timely manner and all of my questions and concerns were addressed way beyond my satisfaction.

Another thing I want to point out is that the minerals have no shelf-life. Since they are all pure minerals, there are no fillers or additives in the foundations to "go bad". Sounds good to me!

The Mineral Hygienics Difference

What makes Mineral Hygienics better?

This is the most sought after question… and the most important!

This answer is simple, but requires a little reading. Every makeup company says they are the “BEST”. So we are going to break down all the claims and let you decide!

Most professionals will agree that mineral makeup is leaps and bounds better than traditional makeup for most individuals. With that said, The focus on this page will be about “mineral makeup” in general, but can be applied to traditional makeup as well.

The Claim: Long Lasting Coverage

How Long is Long?
  • Mineral makeup in general:
    This is one of the most common benefits of mineral makeup. It lasts so much longer and continues to look so much better than traditional makeup, so this feature gets a lot of attention. What you don’t know is: How long it lasts?
  • The Mineral Hygienics Difference:
    Ask anyone that uses Mineral Hygienics how long our foundation lasts when compared to other brands. The most heard phrase will be: “Twice as Long” Most mineral makeup starts to get heavy and separate around 3:00 O’clock in the afternoon. Our foundation lasts till the very second you are ready to go to bed. Go ahead; wear it in the tanning bed over lunch. You still won’t have to touch up anything!

The Claim: Allows your skin to breathe

Can you breathe under water?
  • Mineral Makeup in General
  • The Mineral Hygienics Difference:
    Our makeup allows your skin to breathe all day because it doesn't absorb your oils and moisture. This keeps you looking perfect til bedtime.

The Claim: Fewer Ingredients

What does "Fewer" mean to them and you?
  • Fewer might mean more!
    While most mineral products have fewer ingredients than traditional makeup, this doesn't always mean that it is healthier for your skin. Many mineral products have 10-20+ ingredients in their product. Some actually have more than a traditional liquid. From an ingredient standpoint it is important to see what ingredients are actually being used. Pay particular attention to Bismuth Oxychloride, a very common ingredient found in most mineral makeup. To read a quick article on bismuth oxychloride Click Here.

    B.T.W. Just in-case you want to count ingredients, Mineral Hygienics only has 4! Lowest in the industry!

The Claim: SPF Protection

True and very similar for most brands
  • Virtually every mineral product is made from Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. Both of these ingredients are highly regarded to be the best form of protection from sun, other than wearing clothing and staying out of the sun completely. They all have SPF Protection! You can verify this information on Wikipedia. (Click on the pink words)

The Claim: You'll have a Natural Glow!

Sparkles are not "NATURAL"
  • Mineral Makeup in General
    The the natural glow that mineral companies talk about is not natural at all. This claim was made up to compliment an ingredient that gets bad attention. Bismuth Oxychloride reflects light and can make your skin shiney.
  • The Mineral Hygienics Difference:
    When we say that we provide a perfect air brushed finish, that is what we mean! Our minerals do not make your face shine. They are designed to mimic the color of your skin and make you look naturally beautiful! If you want to add a little bit of fun, grab a bronzer, blush, illuminzer, and eye shadows. They will bring out the extra spark you are looking for!

The Claim: Perfect for Sensitive Skin

Your makeup shouldn't add to your problems
  • The Mineral Hygienics Difference
    We have new customers ordering from us everyday that have tried all sorts of different brands. They all make them itch, give them redness and even cause acne. After switching to us, with in a week almost all of their problems are gone!
