The product: Boots No7 Stay Perfect Mascara – Black
What it’s good for: Defining and lengthening your eyelashes without clumping or smudging. Lasts all day and when you’re ready to take it off, you simply hold a cotton pad soaked in warm water over your eye for 30 seconds and then gently wipe away the little tubes of color that were covering your eyelashes. I actually don’t even use a cotton pad – just my fingers (gently) and warm water!
Key natural ingredients: kaolin & beeswax
The price tag: $9.99
My favorite perk: I have two!
#1 – I actually found this magical wonder of a mascara when I was on EWG’s Skin Deep® Cosmetics Database looking for a healthier mascara. Stay Perfect scored a 2 (the closer to 0 the better/healthier).
#2 – Until I found this mascara, I rarely ever removed my mascara completely on the first try. I typically opted for an oil like jojoba as my mascara remover since it did the job and was nourishing rather than drying and harsh like a lot of makeup removers. With every previous mascara I’ve tried (including natural versions), I would always be taken a q-tip the next morning and removing leftover mascara from underneath my eyes. I used to hate it when I would have a hint of darkness under my eyes all day that only later would I realize was mascara, not lack of sleep.
With Boots No7 Stay Perfect Mascara, I have NEVER had any mascara left behind, but just as importantly, taking off my mascara each night could not be easier. If you’ve been frustrated with the effort it takes to remove your eye makeup and you also want to choose a healthier option then you should definitely try this mascara!
