Check your Mascara for these Toxic Ingredients
I have recently been on a road to clean living! On my journey, I have used the Think Dirty App to scan my cosmetics for harmful toxins that could contribute to cancer or interfere with my hormones. I’ve been using CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion for years. It was recommended to me by a fellow blogger, and I immediately loved its ability to go on smoothly and wash off easily. However, when I scanned my mascara, my perspective changed. It was packed with terrible ingredients that have the capability to do some serious harm overtime and in conjunction with my other products!
There are Harmful Ingredients in CoverGirl Mascara!

Phenoxyethanol: The Environmental Working Group Nonprofit scores phenoxyethanol as a moderate hazard due to its proven toxicity to humans in high doses. There are restrictions on the amount that can be in cosmetic products but they do not account for your exposure using other cosmetic and cleaning products. (Resource)
Why is Endlessly Beautiful Mascara a Better Option?
I simply want to share my experience using their product. Instead of constantly applying (I wear mascara everyday) mascara that could cause damage to my body, I bought a new organic mascara that has the ability to heal and protect my lashes! Endlessly Beautiful mascara was my first choice because it is made with ingredients like Chamomile, Coffee Powder, & Vitamin E. My eye lashes used to bother me and they would often fall out. Since I’ve been using this mascara for a couple of weeks, I can definitely say that my eyelashes feel much more nourished and healthy!
Another plus? It smells great! The scent reminds me of cupcakes!
Endlessly Beautiful Mascara
After purchase, I received an email that included a PDF which outlined several beauty tricks that I found super useful! It also included the many ingredients and the benefits of each one! I had also been concerned about the size of the tube. When I received the mascara, I was a little bit surprised by how small the tube was. The email I received after purchase assured the buyer that it was not less product than commercial mascara but rather less packaging! Yet another aspect I liked about the this company was their environmental consciousness. More perks? I was able to wear Endlessly Beautiful all day without flaking, itching or smearing! This is the first mascara I’ve ever used that does not flake!
