My Skin Looks Great - And Thanks!

Let me start with the thanks. I really appreciate the comments everyone leaves on this blog. I wish I had been able to find something like this blog when I started my Paraben Free journey. It's hard knowing what is a good product and what should be avoided. I still spend hours online and in the store reading labels and even I get bitten now and then.

A couple of posts back, I talked about how my face has been itching and breaking out while using Everyday Minerals foundation. I stopped using their product the day of the post and my skin has already cleared up. Amazing. I have been using Spell's Harmony Foundation and it's a world of difference. It has better coverage than the EM and I can do my entire face in a couple of swipes. I was spending quality time and probably a lot of brush irritation to get the same result with the EM.

I'm not certain what the difference is in these foundations. On the surface, they have the same ingredients. The only difference I can see is the forms of Mica that are used. Spell uses Sericite and Silk Mica.

Spell Harmony
Foundation: Sericite Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Silk Mica: may contain: iron oxides, ultramarine blue

Everyday Minerals Foundation: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499). May contain: Ultramarines (CI 77007).
