The Active Good in Clean Beauty Products – And Why It Matters

ByGeraldine OrentasSep 15, 2022


I'm obsessed with skincare, so I was super excited to try Kosas after seeing them go viral on TikTok. Since I tried their complexion products I have ditched my prior base makeup routine. What inspired me to make the switch?

Kosas’ clean makeup products double as skincare. I’d always had sensitive skin, or so I thought. I’d assumed it was “just me” until I made the switch and my skin started clearing up and glowing. I realized that my skin had actually been reacting to carcinogenic ingredients in most makeup. Kosas’ ingredients are completely clean, which means they are completely free of silicones, mineral oils, talc, and any other ingredients that irritate or damage the skin. They’re also packed with skin-loving ingredients and the formulas look and feel so amazing and comfy on my skin!

Yep, I’m hooked on using Kosas – here are the three things I love the most about these clean beauty products:

This SPF Foundation Cleared My Skin and Gave Me The Dreamiest Glow

The glow is real with the Kosas Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation! I mentioned it has skin-improving qualities and that’s because it’s made with clinically-proven ingredients like powerhouse hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, peptides, squalane, vitamin B5, arnica, and caffeine. I’m obsessed with how these incredibly effective and versatile ingredients work together to boost my skin: squalane hydrates, arnica soothes and depuffs, and niacinamide firms and brightens my skin texture and helps to retain moisture. These transformative ingredients allow the Kosas Revealer Skin-Improving Foundation to live up to its name.

After using the products for a week, I am noticing my skin is visibly brighter, plumper, and more clear. Plus, it has SPF 25 and I’m a big sucker for foundations with sun protection!

Kosas Concealer is Also An Eye Cream, and My Under Eyes Are Sooooo Smooth

The Revealer Concealer is offered in 25 skin-loving shades. As someone with prominent under-eye circles, I was excited about this creamy, buildable formula with real skincare benefits. The formula contains caffeine and pink algae extract to provide long-term brightening effects, arnica, provitamin B5 to soothe, and peptides plus hyaluronic acid to plump the area.

It’s the concealer + eye cream + spot treatment match-in-heaven I was looking for.

The arnica was a game changer because it prevented me from picking –  I simply applied a dot of concealer to my pimples and blemishes. Over time, my pimples disappeared, and no scars or blemishes were left behind. Where has this concealer been my entire life?

Clean makeup = healthy skin

The Kosas Tinted Skincare Lineup also comes with a Cloud Set Setting Powder. After using this, my skin was glowing and thriving, even after hours of running errands in humid South Florida.

As a health and skincare enthusiast, I love that I’m wearing makeup that’s doubling up as skincare. Together, the Kosas Tinted Skincare Lineup helps protect, brighten, and reduce shine, everything I need for flawless, healthy-looking skin that keeps glowing.

Putting My Skin Health First

Using Kosas has taught me that simple is better – and that what a product is full of is just as important as what it’s free of!

As I mentioned before, I no longer have “sensitive skin” like I had with other brands. Now I can get ready with skin-improving ingredients that make me look good while also benefiting my health. Plus, I’ve simplified my routine with 3 easy products! I love that they offer a great shade-matching tool and a super helpful support team if I ever have any questions. What’s not to love?

I have told all of my friends to make the switch to Kosas too – after all, their health matters to me and I want them to learn the importance of choosing healthier beauty products.
