If you were stuck on an island and had only one makeup item, what would it be?  One of the popular makeup choices is mascara.  Being stuck on an island is no reason to sacrifice long, luscious lashes.

Most women wear mascara every day.  With it being used around the delicate eye area, it is important to be sure that you’re using a safe, healthy formula.  The run-of-the-mill mascara you find contains petro-chemicals, parabens, formaldehyde releasers, mercury, and phthalates.  These are all toxic ingredients that you do not want flaking into your eyes.

Mercury, in particular, is a neurotoxin that scientific studies have shown to cause damage to the nervous system.  Placing any amount of mercury near my eye is just too close for comfort.  Fortunately, there are cosmetic brands that have mascaras formulated without these harsh ingredients.

I have been on the hunt for a healthy mascara that works just as well as some of the conventional mascaras that I had grown accustomed to.  I recently purchased the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara and fell in love.

This mascara contains none of the before-mentioned toxic ingredients including sulfates, synthetic frangrance, GMOs, or triclosan .  It also is made with argan oil which is great for conditioning your lashes.

It comes with a huge applicator brush which is perfect for thickening lashes.  I applied two coats without any clumping.  It lasted my entire ten hour day without flaking, smearing, or smudging.  Best of all, I felt good about not having a potentially harmful product on my eyes.

Definitely, check out the Josie Maran GOGO Instant Natural Volume Argan Mascara .  You’ll be stuck on that island looking beautiful and feeling healthy.  For more healthy beauty tips visit Lilikoi Looks on Facebook.

Have you ever tried to decipher the ingredients of your beauty products?  If so, you probably felt you needed a degree in chemistry to understand exactly what you were using on your body.  Then comes the realization that the world of beauty and the world of all things natural and organic are very far apart.

Aveda has helped bridge the gap between these two worlds by providing one-stop shopping for natural beauty.  They manufacture a full line of makeup, hair care, and skin care products.  The entire line is naturally derived from plant products.   Aveda also offers salon and spa services for those who aren’t too keen on do-it-yourself treatments and prefer to be pampered.

If you’ve ever checked out my YouTube channel you know that I’m always doing reviews on outstanding healthy beauty products.  One of my hobbies is to try out new beauty products, especially some of those that people seem to be raving over.  Once I get my hands on a product I’ll test it out for at least a few months.    From there, I will issue my thumbs up or thumbs down opinion.  From my tests and trials, I have found some products that I can’t live without now. 

I am extending myself to the Lilikoi Looks community.  Do you have a cosmetic item that you’ve been wanting to get the real scoop on?  Send me a comment and I’ll review it for you.  Before you go out and buy that hot new beauty item that you just keep hearing about consult with Ms Toi.  Let me review your cosmetic in question so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting when you make your purchase.
