Afterglow Cosmetics is an all natural mineral cosmetic line that does not use synthetics, preservatives, dyes or fillers in any of their products. The company primarily focuses in the area of cosmetics rather than skin care, and includes foundation, blush, eye shadow and liner, mascara and lip products. The products are certified organic when possible, formulated with the highest quality ingredients and using environmentally friendly methods for manufacturing and packaging.
The Afterglow Cosmetics website does a good job of providing consumers with sufficient information to allow them to make savvy decisions about their cosmetic purchases. The website is very easy to navigate, and provides complete ingredient lists for all of the products. Consumers can also find customer testimonials and a 30-day money back guarantee policy that allows them to try out the cosmetics risk free. The website also includes information about how to apply the products and how to choose the most flattering shades depending on skin tone. There is also ample information available about the benefits of using mineral makeup.
Unfortunately, Afterglow Cosmetics does not include any skin care products in its line, which means consumers will not be able to find items from this company that will address anti-aging needs. The closest product we could find was the Organic Aloe Concealer, which may prove to be somewhat effective in hiding fine lines and some types of skin blemishes. However, hiding the effects of aging will not be nearly as effective as diminishing their appearance from the inside out.
Patented ingredients that can accomplish this task include argireline, which will relax facial muscles that lead to lines and wrinkles, and matrixyl, which can stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Another effective anti-aging ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which will hydrate the skin and help it retain moisture to smooth the surface and reduce the appearance of fine lines. It does not appear that the Afterglow Cosmetics line includes any of these ingredients in their formulas.
- The Afterglow Cosmetics website contains ample information about the products.
- The products come with a money back guarantee.
- The Afterglow Cosmetics line does not appear to offer any type of skin care products at the time of this review.
- There are no Afterglow Cosmetics products that will address the specific issue of aging to the skin.
- We were unable to find proven anti-aging ingredients in any of this company’s products.
The Bottom Line
If you are looking for a line of all natural cosmetics that will look and feel good on your skin, Afterglow Cosmetics might be the perfect solution for you. However, if your goal is to find skin care products that will specifically address the visible signs of aging on the skin, you will need to look to other companies to answer your skin care needs.
