Good Clean Beauty: Over 100 Natural Recipes for a Glowing, Beautiful You by Caroline & Isabel Bercaw
I recently started having allergic reactions to darn near anything I put on my upper eye lids. They puffed up, felt heavy, turned red, the skin got dry, it burned & was itchy. My eyes watered & hurt. I'd get my eyes to heal & slowly reintroduce one natural commercial eye product at a time for several days & then bam! back to swollen eye lids. I know I can live without makeup, but I am like many women who feel more confident with my eyes done up. I can forgo anything else, but not my eye makeup. I already make many of my own organic hand butters, salves, & lip balms, & decided to see if I could make my own organic makeup as well.
After finishing this book, I am getting the most use out of the eye makeup aka Eye Shadows section, & the Makeup section - mostly for the blushes & highlighters. The intro. in the book states that this is for home use. No preservatives or other steps that are required for commercial use which is highly regulated (so don't use these recipes to sell stuff).
Overall, I am very glad I took a chance on this book. I am happy for the simple recipes using totally natural ingredients. I have autoimmune disease & I believe my newly developed eye problems are a result of this. I have to be very careful about everything that I am exposed to. This book has given me many fresh ideas & options to try out sans preservatives & other ingredients in commercial products that can cause a negative reaction.
