What’s in my Makeup? Physicians Formula Organic Wear Mascara

Physicians Formula Organic wear mascara is formulated from 100% organic products, and the mascara brush is also recyclable. If you want me to spoil a review, I have to say that this is 100% a let-down.

I read countless reviews online that said this was a great mascara (besides the somewhat tacky packaging) and that for the most part people loved it. So I didn’t feel too bad spending $10 on this product, as it’s about the same price as Covergirl or Rimmel and it’s entirely Organic.

So here I am, super excited to try the Organic wear mascara…and I remove the brush from the tube only to find that the formula is extremely dry. It’s actually so dry that it was flaking into my eyes as I applied it. Upon reading some more in depth reviews, I found that it’s common for people to get a bad batch that’s dry and flaky; I was one of them. So where’s the quality control?

Needless to say, I’m super disappointed that I spent $10 on a mascara that flakes into my eyes whilst applying, and ends up smudging from merely blinking. I wasn’t expecting the mascara to last all day, and I understand that preservatives are limited in organic products and therefore the shelf life may not be as long.

In part, it’s due to my ignorance in not checking to see if there was an expiry on the package, possibly the store’s fault for leaving a package on the shelves for too long, and physicians formula for a product that is dry on the first use.

I have some Visine and coconut oil. So I think I’ll try adding some of that to the formula to see if it helps the consistency at all, even though this shouldn’t be needed. I really loved that this product has an extremely low score (1/10) on EWG’s Skin Deep website and I was hoping this would be my HG mascara. Clearly, I’ll have to find something different for next time.

TL;DR
After reading awesome reviews I expected the Physicians Formula Organic wear mascara to apply amazingly. Upon opening, the bottle was dry and the formula flaked into my eyes while applying/ blinking throughout the day. Even though it has a low score on EWG’s Skin Deep website, I doubt I will repurchase.
