Gressa Skin ‘Non-Toxic Glamour’ and an Ode to Green Beauty

My journey into the world of “clean beauty” was a slow one, as my blog’s archives will prove. Only after reaping tremendous benefits from an all natural skin-care routine, was my curiosity then piqued to include healthier options into my makeup bag. I wasn’t quite ready to sacrifice on the performance of conventional cosmetics, so I set off on a mere “exploration” and made the decision to slowly integrate green beauty into my routine, if and only when I found a product that lived up to my beauty standards. Gressa Skin and the release of their Non-Toxic Glamour line of cosmetics created in me a die-hard green beauty buff.  Safer cosmetic alternatives that outperform their chemically laden counterparts are obtainable, as I have personally witnessed in Gressa’s line. Okay, enough rambling and onto the reviews.

Bare is a pinky-nude with slight shimmer and shine. This flattering pink is pigmented enough to wear alone, and a perfect every day shade. It wears well and conditions lips long after its worn. The Lip Boost is the only lip product you need, and I’m never without mine.
