Benecos: Cruelty Free, Non-Toxic Natural Makeup {Giveaway}

Benecos Non-Toxic Makeup I was recently introduced to Benecos, a line of natural cosmetics from Germany. Benecos products are made with pure plant and mineral ingredients, they are paraben free and they are certified natural by the BDIH.

Lovetruenatural.com offers a fantastic selection of Benecos products and I got to try three items from their store.

Benecos Natural Duo Eyeshadow:

I received their eyeshadow duo set and I love that it works great for my sensitive eyes. I also like that it is vegan and made with pure mineral pigments. They use organic jojoba oil to make it light and comfortable to wear and I found the application is smooth and long lasting.

Benecos

Benecos Maximum Volume Mascara:

I have long lashes but they are a bit thin so adding some volume is something I am always looking for when applying mascara.  The Benecos Maximum Volume Mascara fills out my lashes and they look thick and beautiful after application.  Once again I love that I have no sensitivity issues when applying the product and the fact that it has Vitamin E.

The mascara is super smooth and I noticed there was no clumping to deal with, unlike some other volumizing mascaras I have used before. I also have to mention that the mascara has a very nice scent (almost sweet) and I love that.

Benecos Natural Lip Gloss:

I love using lip gloss to keep my lips moisturized and smooth.  The Benecos Natural Lip Gloss is made with organic sunflower oil and pure mineral pigments and it is NOT sticky or greasy.  I really like how smooth it is and the fact that I am nourishing my lips and looking good at the same time.

I am head over heels for the Benecos line of cosmetics and I can’t wait to try some of their other products.  I love not having to worry about chemicals and toxic ingredients and using products that are high quality and safe for myself and those around me.

Buy it: You can purchase Benecos products online at Lovetruenatural.com

Win it: One lucky US/CAN reader will win a mascara, lipgloss and eyeshadow stick set from Benecos (colors of choice). Enter to win via Rafflecopter below.
