In this blog post, we’ll share our top 3 Natural Alternatives To Harmful Beauty Products.

When it comes to beauty, words like “natural”, “organic”, and “environmentally friendly” aren’t just a trend: they are the way of the future.  Being conscious of what we’re putting on our bodies and into the environment is becoming increasingly important these days.  In fact, many people are now wondering if their chosen beauty routines (such as eyelash extensions, eyebrow waxing & tattooing, and traditional makeup) may not be the best choice for them anymore. 

Here are 3 Natural Alternatives To Harmful Beauty Products.:  

Switch To Eyebrow Threading Instead Of Waxing

Making this one simple switch is a huge step towards a more natural beauty routine, and away from harsh chemicals and skin irritants.  Threading is a virtually painless method of hair removal, using an organic cotton thread to gently remove individual hairs and clean up your overall brow shape.  It’s environmentally friendly, mess free, virtually free of waste, quick, and safe for your skin.  Try our Bombshell Brows Threading service and discover for yourself what organic hair removal is all about! 

Switch To Brow Henna Instead Of Eyebrow Tattooing

Eyebrow tattooing can be both painful, as well as dangerous. The potential for skin infections and exposure to harmful bacteria is enough to make us think twice about putting our face under the needle.  That’s why we prefer our all natural Bombay Brow Henna service.  Brow Henna is a natural pigment that stains the brow hairs and the skin beneath the hair, leaving a powder-like matte finish.  With henna, you can get your desired eyebrow shape, mapped and measured to suit your face shape by a professional brow technician.  The colour lasts up to two weeks on the skin, and on the hairs for up to six weeks. Shades range from blonde to black, so that you can achieve your desired brow look to suit your complexion.  

Switch To Lash Lift & Tint Instead Of Lash Extensions Or Mascara 

Eyelash extensions can cause unwanted damage to your natural lashes, as well as put you at risk for irritation and bacterial eye infections. Mascara packaging and containers are a huge contributor to plastic waste, and the chemicals found inside of your tube can be harmful to your health.  Instead, try our Blink Lash Lift & Tint service, for a gentle and natural long lasting alternative to mascara or extensions.  It works to enhance the thickness and length of your natural lashes, making them appear longer, curled, and more defined, and your results will last anywhere from six to eight weeks. Our Blink Lash Lifting Lotion contains nutrients and vitamins such as Biotin, Vitamin B3, Cocoa Butter, and Hydrolyzed Silk, to strengthen and condition your lashes, while creating the ultimate lash lifting treatment without damaging your natural lashes.
