Lil’ B is almost 4 now and everyday I see her trying to be more like me. She loves putting on her “lipstick” (it’s actually a tube of chapstick) and is always asking me to put makeup on her while I’m getting ready in the morning. I’m not ready for my toddler to wear makeup!!
I refuse to buy her the play makeup kits that you can find in the toy departments because they are probably laced with toxic chemicals. I’ve read several places that 60% of what we put on our skins is actually absorbed into our bodies; how scary is that? You can imagine how excited I was when I heard about Eco Princess Organics’ line of all natural and organic play makeup.
From the Eco Princess website:
Created by a mom who got fed up with all the highly toxic kid’s makeup sets. Eco princess is a line of all natural and organic mineral makeup designed just for kids. Each kit contains: two eye shadows 3 g each, one blush 3 g, pink shimmer lip balm, water based nail polish and two applicators. Purses are hand made and will differ slightly. Tested on princesses. Never on animals.
They have all of the ingredients listed on their site and there are no parabens, no lead, no TFFF/DBP three in their nail enamels, and made with non-GMO ingredients. I’m pretty happy reading the ingredient list and seeing words that I can actually say and that I know what they are (and that they are safe).
I’ve decided to save this special purse full of makeup for a stocking stuffer so I haven’t tested it out to see how well I like it on her. I have done a quick skin test on my arm and all of the products go on well and wash off with warm water so I’m confident that they would be safe for “special occasions with my daughter. I know we’ll get the most use out of the nail polish and the lip balm.
Do you let your little princess play with your makeup? What age did you let them experiment with it?
This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I received items from Eco Princess for the purpose of this review.
