(Disclaimer: I purchased this product myself. I am not being paid to do a review on this product.)
I’ve been putting off this review for a while, because I kept hoping that I would start to like this product…but that was not the case.
I was on the hunt for a new mascara, and I decided it was time to purchase a more “natural” alternative without spending a ton of money. So, I headed to my local CVS and I found Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara. Now, I have heard mixed reviews on the Physicians Formula Organic Wear line, mostly questioning the “EcoCert Certified Organic” Certification. But it is the best organic alternative that you can find in a drugstore, so I gave it a shot.
What I love about this product:
– The packaging. I think the brush handle is cute!
– It doesn’t smudge. Though I didn’t see anything about this mascara being waterproof, I didn’t have any issues with it getting all over my face. I didn’t wear it standing in the rain, or cry a lot while wearing it, so maybe it doesn’t hold up in those situations. For regular everyday wear though, it works well.
What I don’t like about this product:
– It clumps horribly. Even after I wiped the brush with a tissue to remove any excess, I still had tarantula eyes when I put this on! I had to run through my lashes again with a clean mascara brush to try and even them out.
I got so frustrated with the clumping issue, I went back to my old Cover Girl mascara until I figure out another option.
