Healing-Scents Mineral Make up
Product Ingredient Philosophy
Our philosophy is simple: We include ingredients that are either beneficial or benign that make our skin look softer and prettier, our eyes brighter, and our lips more smooth. We do not use ingredients whose sole purpose is to improve the look or texture of the product in the jar; that is simply not our mission. So if our liners look handmade, or our powders not so silky as Brand X, that's okay with us!
Our mission is to:
a. Help our customers look and feel prettier in a natural way.
b. Protect their skin from sun damage and pollution.
c. Rejuvenate and restore damaged skin, as well as keep it soft and hydrated.
d. Avoid toxic or irritating ingredients, even natural ones.
e. Create long-wearing, wearable cosmetic products that make beauty rituals simpler, and fewer for busy women.
The ingredients that we exclude are: dyes, lakes, carmine, synthetic fragrance, talc, bismuth oxychloride, petroleum derivatives, sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate, methylparaben, propylparaben, UREA, and others.
Makeup by its very use is “toxic” to our skin. It is designed to cover the skin densely to hide imperfections. I started offering makeup because my regular customers as what I used….when I reply: “my makeup” they ask that I sell it. I rarely wear makeup. I believe real is better than covered.
We are rated a 1 on the EWG's database. Mica, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are not toxic…. Mica is rated a 2; our zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are rated a 1. This is not a toxic product.
If you want a makeup without mica, zinc and titanium oxide; you need to order from Coastal Classic Creations or one of the other companies. I am not trying to keep up with the huge companies. I make products I know work and trust to be safe. I do not say my products are “organic” only that they are real and natural and work. I do not have the expertise to work up a formula directly with cornstarch, kaolin clay and iron oxides. My belief is that the excess blending that it takes to put these together, will “micronize” all those particles making them fall into the pores and enter the dermal layer.
The Mascara, Eye Liner Pencils, WaterColors Nail Polish are from Honeybee Gardens.
I purchase thel oxides and a foundation base from Essential Wholesale and or From Nature With Love. The Mineral Foundation and Mineral Colors are my own formulations.
My Tinted Face Screen kit
This is an item we have been testing and playing around with for a long time. -- Tinted sunscreen for the face --Use as liquid foundation also.
It is too difficult for us to try to get the perfect shade....so that is what the kit is for!
Kit includes: 2 oz. Live Long Sunscreen; 2 oz. labeled empty jar; 1 oz. Mineral Foundation Powder.
You will need to decide which 1 oz. color of the Mineral Makeup Foundation would be best for you.
I used a Light Cappuccino for myself--much darker than my normal shade of Fair/Fawn blend.
Detailed directions for mixing Face Screen: In a clean bowl; put about 1 1/4 oz. sunscreen. Add 1/2 Tablespoon of Foundation powder. Mix well using a wire whisk (best option); a fork works also. Test color. Slowly add powder and/or sunscreen to create your perfect color.
It usually takes about 1 Tablespoon or more of Foundation powder to 1 1/2 to 2 oz. Sunscreen to tint it well. Carefully put in labeled jar.
I will use this as makeup--finish with just a brush of the mineral foundation powder; then rice powder over it.
Once you have practiced these directions; you can make your larger size sunscreen have more tint by adjusting the ratios.
From a customer email:
Hi Kathleen, I love your products. Your mineral foundation is the best. I was using bare minerals, however your goes on better and lasts longer with better coverage.....Thank You, Donna D
Comment from Linda M.
Beats 100% Pure hands down. We have muscle tested every product we try and all are good and beneficial.
Kathleen here. BareMinerals Foundations has Bismuth Oxychloride. This "mineral" causes skin irritation; can irritate acne and rosaecea. One of their new formulas says "soil minerals"....a way of hiding all those chemicals they are adding to their foundations.
Mineral Foundation Powder
This wonderful lightweight silky mineral powder is amazing as a concealer (simply use wet), foundation and powder. We suggest using the residue of the foundation in the lid of the container to dip into. Simply tap off any excess powder from your brush before application. To use as a spot concealer, simply wet the tip of a small makeup brush and dip ever so slightly into the lid of the container and apply to face.
As a powder, first apply Blemish stick or Acne Gel on problem areas. Apply Forever Young Face Cream to rest of face. Let soak in and set for 10-15 minutes. For a light to medium coverage, apply to face with a soft and fluffy powder brush.
As a foundation, in order to achieve a medium to heavy coverage, we suggest using a foundation brush or sponge. Applying with a damp sponge will give you still darker, heavier and more intense coverage.
If you really enjoy liquid foundations, our little trick is to mix our Unscented Ultimate Lotion to a little bit of the powder and blend to the desired color and consistency and then apply to the face.
Mix first, if you apply the powder to a freshly (and still wet) moisturized face. You will get a heavier coverage.

This is Cosmetic Grade Rice Powder. Excellent as a setting powder/mineral veil.
Rice powder is lightweight, translucent and offers oil-absorbing properties. Leaves the skin with a porcelain shine-free finish.

Fair -- Fairly-Natural (new) -- Neutral -- Golden Glow -- Undereye Yellow
The Fairly-Natural is an even blend of the Fair (pink) and the Neutral (tan) to give a tone in between the two.
Cover that imperfection without having to wear foundation by simply dabbing this skin toned concealer on with a camouflage brush or a clean fingertip and feather the edges.
We have added a 20 ml size. This is a special request item and may delay your order 2 days.
----- I love your concealer--was out for a while and I use it as a eyelid primer--tried some Bare Minerals and I was so allergic--my eyes watered the whole 2 1/2 weeks I used it. (They took it back:) Holly V.

Here's proof that a truly natural mascara CAN be amazing! Our silky, lash-defining mascara is totally weightless yet provides all day color. The smooth light-as-a-feather base boasts zero clumping due to the absence of clay in the superior lash-conditioning formula. Bat your eyes and flutter your lashes without flaking and smudging. Perhaps best of all is that this botanically-enriched mascara is paraben free. Water-resistant, work-out proof. Not water-proof.
Espresso - Chocolate Truffle –Black Magic
1) Apply one coat for a natural, eye-defining look.
2) Drama queen? Apply two coats. Unlike traditional mascaras that clump after one coat with lashes stuck together (making application of a second coat nearly impossible!), our mascara remains light and silky. You can easily apply that second coat to get a more dramatic look without harming delicate lashes.
Love the brush from your commercial mascara? Wash it out with hot soapy water. Use to separate lashes after applying the natural mascara.
This is the best, most natural mascara I have every found that ordinary people can afford.

Side By Side Dual Sharpener with Flip Top Lid
From Honeybee Gardens. Colorful little sharpeners with the added benefit of a flip-top lid to make sharpening your pencils a neat and tidy experience. Choose from pretty pink or perky purple. Material: polystyrene and steel.
Here are some tips for sharpening your pencils:
1) Never press the pencil into the sharpener. Place the tip gently into the sharpener and twist, allowing the blade to do all the work. The JobaColors Eye and Lip Liners are a bit softer than most formulas, allowing it to glide easily on the skin without pulling the delicate tissue. Therefore, more care needs to be taken when sharpening.
2) Never sharpen to a sharp point.
3) Always make sure you twist 360 degrees, and only do this once. Check the pencil. If it is not sharp enough, twist 360 degrees again. This ensures an even tip.
4) Use a good, sharp sharpener. Ours works great!
