Green Room Thursdays — Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm
Are you addicted to the NARS Multiples or the Tarte Cheek Stains? Then you’ll appreciate Revolution Organics’ Freedom Glow Beauty Balm, an all-in-one cream color packaged in a retractable, portable tube. Of course, this multi-purpose balm is more than a magic color stick — aside from delivering a nice hint of color, it also hydrates and soothes the skin thanks to its unique formula, which consists of 100% natural and 85% certified organic ingredients. Among these ingredients, you’ll find: organic coconut oil, which moisturizes and restores a youthful appearance to skin; organic aloe leaf extract, which gently soothes; cold-pressed organic olive oil, which conditions and softens; organic shea butter, which moisturizes and smooths; organic castor oil, which boasts antibacterial properties; organic jojoba oil, which provides long-lasting moisture and helps to naturally balance oil production; naturally-derived safflower seed oil, which is believed to help the skin regain its elasticity and which has been used as an anti-acne treatment; natural soybean oil, which moisturizes the skin; natural sunflower seed oil, which helps the skin retain moisture; and vitamin E, which softens skin and protects it from free radicals.
The Freedom Glow beauty balm is currently available in three shades: Blushed, a sheer fuchsia shade that, when properly blended, looks like a petal-perfect rose pink; Sunkissed, a tangerine shade that transforms into a light peachy coral when worked into the skin; and Bronzed, a sheer sepia brown that blends into a tan color. All three shades have a bit of an iridescent sheen to them, but don’t expect as much as you’d find in your typical NARS Multiple. Also, the color practically melts onto the skin, so be careful not to be too heavy-handed when gliding the stick over cheeks, decolletage, etc.
Pictured below, you’ll find swatches of the three shades, as well as photos of me wearing the Sunkissed hue. How’s this for an organic alternative to creamy cheek color?
