As part of my quest to live a more sustainable life, I’m trying to replace my regular beauty products with more natural versions. Some are easier than others… I’m still looking for a great shampoo and conditioner for example! But I’ve struck gold with my latest buy: PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Blusher.

PHB ETHICAL BEAUTY PRESSED MINERAL BLUSHER FINISH
All of that would be pointless though, had they not made such an impressive product! This blusher is a gorgeous colour. It gives a slightly radiant sheen, without being at all sparkly. It has SPF15, but I’d always recommend having an SPF in your moisturiser and foundation too.This blusher has a really strong colour pay off – in fact the first time I used it I was kind of shocked as it was so bright!
I was used to my old blusher, where you have to put on loads to get any colour at all – so was a bit gung ho about applying it. If you get into this situation, just rub some cotton wool over your cheeks to remove the excess, and add some loose powder.
Now I know how strong the colour is, I go carefully. As with all make-up, you can always add more, but it’s tricky to take it away. You need to buff it into the skin with your blusher brush. As you can see from the photo above, it does make a bit of ‘dust’ as you dip your brush in, so do take care if you have a white carpet!
I’ve got the hang of it now, and wear it every day.I like a nice subtle flush, like I have here, but you can easily get a really strong colour as there is such a high concentration of pigment in the blusher.
PHB ETHICAL BEAUTY PRESSED MINERAL BLUSHER DETAILS
PHB Ethical Beauty Pressed Mineral Blusher comes in eight shades. I love it, and am looking forward to trying some more products in this range. I initially ordered Peach, but when it arrived it looked too dark and warm for my skin tone, so I sent it back and swapped it for a more pinky colour. Buying make-up online always carries that risk, but as I hadn’t used it, it was easy to exchange. The Camellia shade is really flattering and I think it would suite fair skin like mine, but as there are seven other shades, ranging from pale to dark, cool to warm, so I think most skin tones would find a good match.
It costs £14.95 which is line with other premium beauty brands, but I think it is good value as you have to use so little it will last for years. Added to that all the eco credentials listed above, I think it’s definitely worth it. I ordered it through Love Lula, which is one of my favourite online beauty stores, and gives you points when you make a purchase, which are then converted into money off your next purchase.
