Makeup Bag

I use a handful of products daily, and until recently I had no idea the toxicity levels that each item held. I found this cosmetic search engine, Skin Deep, from a web news letter I receive. It was scary to see how toxic my daily routine is. I sharpied the "hazard score" on each package to remind me how much junk I am exposing myself to. I know I should toss these products into the garbage can, but I can't talk myself into wasting that much stuff. When its time to replace, and buy new I'll be sure to check Skin Deep before I purchase anything.

My make up bag scores are:
L'Oreal Paris True Match Concealer - Hazard Score 2 out of 10
Cover Girl Remarkable Mascara- Hazard Score 7 out of 10
Lumene Blemish Treatment Stick- Hazard Score 5 out of 10
L'Oreal Paris Wear Infinite Eyeshadow- Hazard Score 7 out of 10
Olay Regenerist Daily Cleanser- Hazard Score 6 out of 10
Target Brand Facial Moisturizer- Hazard Score 4 out of 10

In the future I'd like to keep my scores below a 3, but until then I'll be here using up my toxic products. Yikes!
