The Pure Puff ft. Gia Minerals

Delving into organic beauty products can be really overwhelming.  Whether it's skincare or eyeshadow, I want things that will suit my skin type and also perform well in terms of formula and pigmentation.  Gia Minerals has an entire line of beauty products to suit practically skin type and taste.  In today's Pure Puff we'll look at some of their skincare and cosmetics.

This cleanser is perfect for my sensitive skin.  It is gentle enough to use both morning and night, leaving my skin clean, smooth and refreshed without feeling stripped of its natural moisture.  It removes makeup and mascara easily too. (I do not use waterproof mascara at the moment.)  It has a very faint scent I could barely detect - definitely nothing to cause irritation on my skin.  The bottle has a convenient flip top that closes securely so you can easily pack it for travel without worrying about spills.


One of my favorite things is a multi-purpose product.  Not only can this setting spritz set your mineral makeup, as the name implies, but it can also be used as a toner!  In all honesty, that is my favorite use for this product.  It is incredibly gentle and feels so amazing on the skin that I just want to cleanse my entire face in it.  It instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin.  I even used it right after a workout to immediately cleanse my skin.  You can easily throw this in a gym bag or purse for a refreshing spritz on the go as well!



When I apply mineral foundation it's almost as if my skin is breathing a sigh of relief.  This foundation not only provided great coverage, but also felt incredibly lightweight on my skin.  I simply used a buffing brush to apply the product and it takes so much less time than liquid foundation.  Some powder and mineral foundations can leave skin looking flat or cakey but this left my skin looking fresh and natural all day.  I still had to blot mid-day, but my skin is very oily so that's typical for me.  Overall, my skintone was evened out, pores were minimized (especially on my nose), and it felt as if nothing was on my skin.  I love that feeling!

Eyeshadows in Renaissance & Bordeaux

These shadows are a small representation of the vast range of colors Gia Minerals has to choose from.  Colors are organized by color family on the site so its easy to find shades that suit your personal style!  I love a good neutral so Renaissance was the first shade that caught my eye.  It is a beautiful tan shimmer that can go with a multitude of looks.  It can go from day to night and it instantly brightens my eyes. I was really stunned by the pigmentation of this shade.  It has just as much color pay off as many high end, non-organic brands I have.  Bordeaux is a true fall color to me.  It is a rich wine shade that looks great paired browns and other neutrals for an instant pop of "oooh what's that?!" - technical terms here.  It can be layered for more intense color pay off or applied lightly for instant warmth to compliment a neutral look.  In short - I love this color!



For a finishing touch, I love a gloss.  It's simple, versatile and doesn't take forever to apply!  Azure is a beautiful warm nude that doesn't wash me out.  It is the perfect shade for fall because it will pair perfectly with smokey looks as well as subtle neutral looks.  It has a slight, barely noticeable shimmer and is suitable for day or night looks.  This is what I would call a "no-brainer" shade.  I would throw this on with practically any color combination for an instant polished look.  This gloss is not only beautiful, but it's packed with skin-loving ingredients such as jojoba oil, coconut oil, shea butter and vitamin E.  It is incredibly smooth and comfortable on the lips too - not sticky at all.  I see this gloss going straight into my purse as my go-to this fall and winter!
