This sunscreen is amazing. It is moisturizing, so on my oily skin I use this without moisturizer underneath. I love the way this blurs my pores and really gives enough coverage for me. It goes on so nice, and blends well. Feels a little greasy initially but does soak into skin so that soon after applying I don't notice it being greasy at all. Everyone who wants zero waste moisturizing sunscreen should try this! I got the tan and works well for my olive skin in winter, though I may try dark for summer.
I was worried about trying this product due to a lot of other sunscreens in the past leaving a white film on my face and being difficult to apply. This sunscreen though, is everything I have been looking for in a product, applies easily and smoothly, and doesn’t leave any white or greasy film on my face! It actually also kind of acts like a BB cream and provides a little/light foundation like coverage on the face. I would highly recommend this product.
Well I really wish I would have known about this sunscreen months ago! It is incredible, I love that it is a solid stick that goes on smoothly. It smells like vacation/summer because of the coconut and jojoba oil and doesn't feel too greasy on my skin. I like that it's tinted a bit too, so I don't look like a ghost like with my other zinc based sunscreens. The packaging is my favorite, it is sturdy enough while still being compostable, I will never buy a different sunscreen unless they stop making this one.
So happy to move towards sustainable makeup. These cases are wonderful! The magnets are SUPER strong too. In fact, these are so beautiful my boyfriend thought they were too pretty to get "ruined" in my makeup drawer!
I got this eye shadow because I love the idea of a local-ish company run by women. I like the zero-waste packaging. The union is beautiful and really brightens up my eyes! I loooove it. I'm not a big make up wearer but I find myself wanting to wear this eye shadow! I would absolutely buy more.
Great powder. Love that it's plastic free AND refillable.
I was looking for an eco-friendly, more natural powder foundation to replace the one I've bought from a major cosmetic brand in the past. I was nervous that this wouldn't work, but it matches my skin perfectly and works beautifully. Would recommend!
This is the second time I bought this foundation. It covers so well!
I love this! I'm 50 w/combination to oily skin. It's full coverage and i only grab a blending brush two times throughout a 10 hour day to blend out my creases due to my oily skin. Yet, 30 seconds to 1 minute later, and WITHOUT adding more poweder, i look super fresh & ready again.
Additionally, it has not broken out my skin either. WIN!!!
Works well for my black eyebrows because the lighter color fools the eye into seeing more coverage, without looking too drawn on.
I love the silky way this brow balm goes on. The wooden container is fun to handle and I'm glad I can keep using the same container with refills.
I REALLY like this product.. before, I had been using ELF brow gel and had been using that for years. Elate's brow balm is really nice, gives my brows a more defined, dark look, and I love that they have non-plastic, eco-conscious packaging; I'll be sticking to this product from now on. It works great, would definitely recommend.
This is a really nice blush and I love that it's a creme. I got the shade, Elate, and it's definitely too bright for me; I wish I got a more neutral tone like Bliss. Otherwise, I have no problems with it; love that this company sticks to organic ingredients and sustainable packing. Will be trying another one soon.
Great blush. There was a little moisture on the mirror when I first opened the compact(s), but after wiping it away it hasn’t returned. Guess it’s not a surprise, this product isn’t powder which I am used to. The moisture is a plus for my skin, also the color is really long lasting:). Will definitely be back when it runs out.
I was skeptical about this make up brand but now I have their concealer, eye shadow, mascara, eye liner, and foundation. I love it all, but this one surprised me the most. I thought it would melt off my face but I recently took my engagement photos in the sun for two hours with this make up and it stayed on perfectly. Highly suggest.
I was really unsure based on reviews i read if i would like this tinted sunscreen or not. I was looking for a good and hearty sunscreen (30 spf) AND something to replace other tinted cosmetic items in my make up kit to get me closer to my zero waste goals. I have a more oily and sensitive skin type that breaks out easy with the wrong products. I am happy to announce that it works great and with no breakouts! With a little concealer and a light dusting of Elate pressed foundation and a bronzer i am ready to rock everyday! I definitely recommend melting it a bit in cooler weather between your palms before putting onto you face, but it works great and looks super natural. The coverage is SUPER light. If you need more coverage for your look, i think you could layer you standard liquid foundation over it too! I highly recommend this product! I have an olive skin tone, but i think someone with a lighter complexion could use this too. Like i said, the coverage is light. However, it is tinted, so you don’t get that weird blueish tint some sunscreen causes. Also, this is the ONLY moisturizer i use during daytime hours layered over my serums, as it is very hydrating. Hope that helps folks thinking about trying for the first time!
I've purchased this exact product before but from a different store, so when I bought this from ecocollective, I already knew what it would be like. The size of this tin is perfect - small enough to throw in my bag when I'm headed outside, whether to the beach/lake or just to the park for a picnic, but large enough to have a good amount of product inside (and so it doesn't get lost inside the bag :) I also now use my old empty tin in my bathroom to hold my aluminum crystal deodorant & shampoo bar from ecocollective! The product itself goes a long way - it's a really thick texture, so I've found that I don't need to use much of it to cover my face and shoulders. I used to use this as my everyday face moisturizer a few years ago, but it's definitely too thick and a little greasy for that, even for my dry Black skin. Now, I use a different daily moisturizer that has aloe vera (which has a weak natural SPF I think? Need to do more research), and for days when I'll be outside, I layer this tinted moisturizer/sunscreen on top, especially for my cheekbones/nose/shoulders where I burn the most. This layering technique works MUCH better for me and my skin. The sunscreen has a unique but nice smell, and the tint is very subtle, blending in to my skin nicely (note: I'm a mixed race Black person with medium skin tone). I liked this product enough to buy it twice, but I will probably try out some other ones when this one runs out.
I loved that this sunscreen was not in plastic and was searching for something lightweight for my daily use on my face. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that I would buy again. The tint is good, although it looks dark at first, it blends in to a nice neutral color (I have a fair complection). But the feel of the product is thick, oily and sticky. I have definitely used better all-natural sunscreens. It's wearable but not great.
The Rosebud color has no hint of pink or mauve. It's very plain beige so very warm vs cool toned. I found the formula to be too drying, too.
Color and quality are on point!
