Review: 100% Pure Skincare and Cosmetics #100PercentPure #Skincare #Makeup

(product photos courtesy of www.100percentpure.com)

A little while ago I was sent items some from 100% PURE to test out. I received an eye cream, a night cream, a couple of lipsticks and some lip glosses. At first I did not think that these products were going to be as good as most of my regular products. After all, 100% PURE is known for being 100% all natural and frankly, most of the all natural cosmetics I have encountered have not been that good. I was pleasantly surprised though how nice these items were. The lipsticks are pigmented, creamy and go on very well. The night cream is rich and luxurious. The eye cream really helped with my puffiness and dark circles. Read on below for my reviews of all of the products they sent me. 

Multi-Vitamin + Antioxidant Ultra Riche PM Treatment $55.00



This is a super, ultra rich evening cream that is a multi-vitamin powerhouse. I was able to try it out but it will not be available until April. It contains Vitamin C and the repairing Vitamin A. The nightly dose of these nutrients work to repair daily damage of the skin. It has the maximum percentage of vitamins possible without being irritating to the skin. This product is 100% PURE's thickest, most luxurious skincare product. You will definitely notice a difference in the skin when you wake up. It has Vitamins E, A, C, D, K and B complex which work together to brighten, strengthen, moisturize, retain moisture, reduce fine lines and stimulate collagen production in the skin.

I used this on my skin and found it to be a great product. It definitely works on helping to give skin anti-aging benefits. I love how rich and thick this cream is. It is a great cream to have for the night. All of the ingredients in this cream are anti-aging powerhouses and work intensely to help reduce fine lines and brighten up the skin. Used regularly, this cream will make skin look amazing.  

 

Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream 1 fl.oz./30 mL $25.00

I am truly lucky. The only thing I have to worry about right now with my eyes are dark circles and puffiness. This cream takes care of both of those problems. It is rich in caffeine laden green tea and coffee which helps to improve the appearance of puffy under-eyes and brightens dark circles.


The results of an independent 4-week clinical study showed the following:


  • 83% saw immediate reduction of puffiness
  • 97% saw reduction of puffiness with continued use
  • 73% saw an immediate reduction of dark circles
  • 87% saw reduction of dark circles with continued use
  • 87% say they look more 'awake, rested and refreshed
  • 80% say that it instantly helped reduce the look of lines and wrinkles around the eye area
  • 97% say skin around their eyes softer and smoother
  • 93% say it reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with continued use
  • 100% say it improved skin hydration and moisturization
  • 93% say it improved skin firmness/elasticity
  • 93% say that the eye cream absorbs well
This eye cream is anti-inflammatory, rich in caffeine green tea and coffee. It reduces the appearance of puffy eye and brightens dark under eye circles. The cream has concentrated potent anti-aging vitamins, anti-oxidants and nourishing rosehip oil to make the area appear more awake and more youthful. 

I suffer from dark circles and eye puffiness. This cream did help with both of these bothersome problems. Immediately I noticed a difference in the puffiness. It took that away within days. After a couple of weeks I noticed that my dark circles were fading fairly fast. I would recommend this cream for both of these problems. If you are looking for something for fine lines, supposedly it helps those too but I cannot say whether or not it does as I don't have any. It did make my eyes look better, more awake and refreshed.

Bright Eyes: Mask to De-Puff and Brighten the Under Eye Area $7.00 per mask

This mask is highly caffeinated to brighten and de-puff the under eye area. It is extremely hydrating, quenching thirsty skin with a blast of water delivered to dehydrated skin cells. The mask is made with "hydrogel" material, which is composed of 95% organic aloe water and 5% plant cellulose made to intensely hydrate. The longer you leave it on the thinner it becomes because the water gets absorbed into the skin. The hydrogel assists in delivering active ingredients onto the skin. 

To use, apply the mask onto clean skin, onto the under eye area. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and follow with your normal skincare regimen. Do not rinse off. Use 1-7 times per week (yes, it can be used daily if needed). 

This mask immediately makes the eyes look super. It takes away all puffiness and dark circles. Eyes look brand new again and feel great. If you suffer from dehydration, then this is for you too as it really helps to put moisture back into the skin. Crinkles will be gone and eyes will feel refreshed and soft. Fine lines will be gone too. It is a super mask.

Fruit Pigmented Pomegranate Oil Anti-Aging Lipstick $29.00




I received two of these to try out, Calendula and Foxglove. Calendula is a nude peach. Foxglove is a light plum. What is so nice about these lipsticks is how super creamy and highly pigmented they are. These lipsticks are anti-aging, super moisturizing concentrated with pomegranate oil, shea butter and colored from fruite pigments to keep lips super soft and youthful. Anti-oxidant and vitamin packed too. Truly 100% pure. No synthetic chemicals, synthetic dyes, chemical preservatives or any other toxins in them. I really like the feel of them on my lips, they stay on a long time too. These are very nice lipsticks to have. All of the colors are very natural and pretty.

These are beautiful lipglosses. They have sheer pops of color from fruit pigments and glimmer from semi precious stones that give lips a gorgeous sparkle. They are only slightly sticky and look amazing on the lips. I was able to try out Crystal and Rainbow Aura. Crystal is a sheer, very light pink and Rainbow Aura is a medium berry pink with shimmery multicolored crystals in it. I love the way they look on the lips too. For this kind of gloss you get pretty good wear too.

Lip Caramel has much more pigment than Gemmed Lip Gloss. These are intensely saturated, gorgeous colors that come from fruits, roots and achiote seeds rich in pigments. All in a base of lip softening pomegranate oil and cocoa butter. For those who desire gorgeous rich fruit pigmented neutral or intense color with a high shine finish, these are for you. The best way to wear them is to apply to clean lips. Reapply to intensify color as needed. I was able to try out two colors: Rum Nougat and Red Velvet. Let me tell you, they are beautiful on. Rum Nougat is a gorgeous light brownish pink and Red Velvet is an intense, bright red. 

I love wearing these because they are so similar to lipstick but with a lighter feel. You get all the benefits of wearing a lipstick but in a lighter form. It is also similar to a gloss but with more pigment. So it is a cross between a lipstick and a gloss.

So there you have it. 100% PURE is 100% great. Their products are amazing. I am very happy with the eye cream, eye mask and the makeup that I tried. So happy in fact that I do plan to keep on wearing it and I would like to order some things. I did not think I was going to be so happy with what I received. I do think you should take a look at what they have as it is phenomenal. Their products are vegan, and cruelty free.
