Physicians Formula landed on our shores here in Ireland back in June this year, but I have only recently been able to try some of their products out. The company was founded way back in 1937 by Dr. Frank Crandall. He had started off by developing a unique line of cosmetics for his wife who had sensitive skin. To this day the brand stay loyal to that promise and produce high quality hypoallergenic cosmetics and skincare and are one of the biggest brands in America. Here are a few of my favourites:
Happy Booster Blush & Mineral Wear Face Brightener *
I received this blush a few month’s ago in a Chic Treat Club box and I have found myself using this nearly everyday. The packaging is just the cutest and it’s also really sturdy, so no smashed up powder in your makeup bag! There are different blush tones mixed with highlights and gives a gorgeous glow to the skin. It also supposably had a mood booster in it too, but that I don’t believe in so much!
The Mineral Wear face powder is just amazing! It is part of their Mineral Wear range and has a bend of precious mineral gems to give a soft-focus look. I use this to set my foundation, usually just around my t-zone. No matter how many times I apply this, it never cakes and makes my skin look airbrushed and polished. This is a great dupe for MAC Mineralize Skin Finish, and gives the exact same result – if not better! There is also a mirror underneath the compact so its perfect for touch ups throughout the day.
2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner & Serum*
Oh dear god, this is just THE best liquid eyeliner pen EVER! I have always kept away from liner pens as I found them so fiddly and I could never manage a straight line. This is just so amazing, that I have never once made a mistake while using it! The nib is just the perfect length and it is flexible enough to ensure perfect precision. Once it’s on it wont budge and is waterproof. It also contains a serum to help boost your lashes from the root. I will probably keep buying this forever!
Organic Wear – Fake Out Mascara*
How pretty is this packaging? Again, this is from their “Organic Wear” range. This contains 100% Natural Origin lash extension fibers and 70% of the total ingredients are from Organic farming. I will admit I did find the wand took a bit of getting used to. The bristles are very short and the formula is dry, but it does give great definition and length. I didn’t find it done much to volumize but it is a great everyday mascara and perfect if you wear contact lens or have sensitive eyes.
All-in-1 BB Concealer*
This is such a nifty little concealer and the coverage is amazing. The texture is silky smooth and it covers all blemishes and dark circles perfectly! It feels so moisturising on the skin and never creases under my eyes which is a huge bonus! The only downside is the packaging. You twist the bottom to release some product into the brush, but too much always comes out! I also dislike brushes like this but I usually just apply to the back of my hand and use my fingers to apply to my face. I really do love the product though, and it’s a good one to throw into your bag for touch-ups.
Physicians Formula is available is selected pharmacies throughout the country, and more are being added every few months. This is a brand that I am really excited to try more of and it’s even better that all their products are under €20!
Much love x
