Non-Toxic Savvy Mineral Makeup Premium Starter Kit

Did you know that the average woman puts over 500 chemicals per day on her body?! 80 chemicals even before breakfast?!

And since our skin absorbs 60-70% of any topical products we use-- then we need to know what we are putting on our bodies. Don't you agree?

There is a NEW Savvy Mineral Makeup Kit #nontoxic #naturalbeauty #youngliving

But before we go talking about non-toxic makeup can you do me a favor? Check out the EWG's Skin Deep Database or the Think Dirty App to see where your cosmetics rank on the toxicity scale. Just be sure you're sitting down, okay? It can be a shocker. 

Most cosmetics have ingredients like parabens, talc, bismuth, lead, mercury and mineral oil. Just google those. Go ahead. I dare you. 

If you checked the EWG site/Think Dirty App and you looked up all those things, you are probably pretty disgusted with the entire cosmetic world, right? I know I was. I gave up makeup for a long time because.... ew. But not anymore!!!

What's in the New Savvy Minerals Premium Starter Kit #youngliving #PSK #naturalmakeup #naturalbeauty

Something amazing happened! Someone I actually know launched a makeup company and then my favorite natural company bought it! OMG! I have been geeking out about this for I don't know how long. Anyways, TODAY is the launch of their new makeup bundle!! AAAHHHH!!

It's got great foundational products so you can kick your old chemical-filled makeup to the curb! But let me tell you what Savvy Minerals do NOT have...
  • Savvy Minerals are free from: talc, lead, bismuth, mineral oil, parabens, lead, gluten and mercury!
  • Savvy Minerals are made in the USA (the brushes are made in Italy).
  • Savvy Minerals are cruelty-free and mostly vegan (the lipsticks and lip glosses have beeswax so they are not considered vegan).
  • Savvy Minerals by Young Living uses Arrowroot Powder and Kaolin Clay. Both are calming to the skin, help to absorb excess oil and moisture on the skin and make the skin feel silky smooth. This is important because most mineral makeup uses bismuth, which is a metal mineral that - when worked into the pores - aggravates the pores and causes irritation and breakouts.
  • Savvy Minerals last ALL DAY LONG… seriously, ALL DAY LONG!  You’ll look as fresh at midnight as you did at 9 a.m.!

And the best news is that it's launching as a Premium Starter Kit! That means you get these amazing products as a bundle for about $100 off, you get membership perks so you can buy more makeup, beauty products or essential oils at a 24% discount, and you get an amazing team to help you with your goals. 

That's pretty awesome, right?

Which Savvy Mineral Foundation Color Should I Use?

So you wanna get Savvy? Go you.

I am in love with the Savvy Mineral Makeup because it's actually chemical free, vegan and never tested on animals! Even the majority of awesome green companies like Beauty Counter still have some chemicals in their products simply due to the nature of cosmetics.

But since Savvy Minerals is a mineral makeup line-- they have some of the best ingredient profiles I've ever seen! 

Which Savvy Mineral Makeup should I use?

But a lot of people are worried about picking the wrong color, especially if they don't know anyone in person who has all the colors! But trust me, it's easier than you think.

  • The Savvy Mineral Foundation is super forgiving
  • The foundation can be blended with other foundations to give you a custom color
  • The powder is buildable so you can get a supernatural daytime look or a more full-coverage look for date night.

The two most popular colors are "Warm 2" and "Cool 2" if that says anything! Next up "Dark 1" for people who have olive complexions. After that-- "Dark 4", the darkest color. 

Which Savvy Mineral Foundation Should I Use? #nontoxicbeauty #mineralmakeup #naturalbeauty

Here are some tricks and tips for finding your perfect foundation color from my diamond leader, April Pointer. 
  • Check Your Veins: Push your sleeves up and look at the veins on the inside of your wrist. Are they blue or green? If they look more blue, you likely have cool undertones. If the veins look greenish, you’re warm.
  • The Jewelry Trick: Think about whether you look better in silver or gold jewelry Typically, girls with cool undertones look better in silver and platinum metals, and warm-toned women look better in gold.
  • The Neutral Test: Think about what neutral shades flatter you best. Does your skin, eyes, and face look better in bright white and black hues, or ivory, off-whites, and brown/tan shades? The former means you’re probably cool-toned, and the latter, warm.
  • Eye and Hair Color: Your natural eye and hair colors can help figure out your coloring. Customarily, cool people have eyes that are blue, gray, or green and have blond, brown, or black hair with blue, silver, violet and ash undertones. Conversely, warm-toned women usually have brown, amber, or hazel eyes with strawberry blond, red, brown, or black hair. Their hair tends to have gold, red, orange, or yellow undertones.
  • The Sun’s Effects: When you’re out in the sun, does your skin turn a golden-brown, or does it burn and turn pink first? If you fit into the former category, you’re warm-toned, while cool tones tend to burn.
Does that help you make your decision? If not, remember that the cool colors are a little pink and the warm colors are a little yellow. If you want to cut the pink, you may want a more yellow-ish foundation or vice versa. 

And remember, you can always mix Savvy Minerals Foundations together to create a custom foundation shade. I really like warm 2 and warm 3 in the summer, but I'm a straight warm 2 in the winter and sometimes I even add a little cool 2.

Remember, if you want a more full coverage look, you will need the misting spray and maybe even a primer if you are looking to cover up acne scars or rosacea. Young Living recommends the Art Intensive or Sheerlume Brightening Cream as primers.

If you're ready to get started with Savvy Minerals, I recommend the Savvy Premium Starter Kit. It's a great way to save money and ditch many of your foundational makeup products that are commonly full of chemicals in one big swoop!

Easy DIY Mini Lotion Sticks

Sometimes creative ideas come to me and I think, "Gosh, Sherri. You're brilliant." This is not one of those moments.

I've spent two years with my original lotion bar (which I love) and I kept thinking FOR TWO YEARS that there has to be a better way and that I was missing something to make them uber portable. And then it hit me... put it in an absolutely adorable mini container.


That was the result of two years of contemplation. Not my best moment, but nonetheless I am in love with the results of these Mini Lotion Sticks! I hope you will be too.

DIY mini lotion bars make a great gift or to carry in your purse
