|Raesin Image Cosmetics||
Raesin Images Cosmetics was founded in 1987 by Rae Kat Switzer, a Biochemist, Professional Makeup Artist, and Professional Image Consultant. Raesin Images Cosmetics manufactures a line of mineral makeup and anti-aging skin care products aimed at promoting healthy skin. Mineral makeup is not a new concept as the market may suggest. Archeologist digs have revealed the use of ancient tools and natural pure minerals used for makeup application from thousands of years ago. Natural plant mineral source colors were ground to produce the earliest versions of mineral makeup. Raesin Images Cosmetics promotes their line pf products as being 100% Pure Natural Cosmetics, an alternative to Bare Minerals, a leading competitor in the cosmetic industry. The company also claims to be the only manufacturer of “Cream Mineral Makeup.”
Raesin Images Cosmetics offers mineral based makeup for the face, cheeks, eyes and lips, as well as brushes used for makeup application. The line also includes anti-aging cleansers, toners, moisturizers, acne products, eye cream, serums and elixirs, masks, and what they call an alternative to Botox. Botox is an injectable fluid known to temporarily paralyze the muscles in the face to prevent the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. The company claims that all of the ingredients used in the products are FDA approved natural ingredients that will not irritate the skin or clog the pores, with no harsh detergents, dyes, chemicals, residue or fillers.
According to the Raesin Image Cosmetics official website, the key benefits of their brand is that the mineral makeup is made without Bismuth Oxychloride, which is known to cause itching and cystic acne. The makeup is also made without Mica which can also irritate and clog the pores. The mineral products are 100% chemical free with naturally occurring broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection against the suns rays. The ingredients used in the mineral makeup may include micronized titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxides, ultramarines, chromium green oxide, silica, aluminum starch, aluminum oxides and sericite. The cream mineral makeup contains cannabis seed (hemp oil), beeswax, grapefruit seen oil, coconut oil, caranuba, hazel seed, jojoba oil, vitamin E, rose hip oil, olive squalane and wheat germ oil. The anti-aging line may include AHA’s, BHA’s, Glycolic Acid, Vitamin C and Olive Squalane.
- Made with natural minerals from the earth.
- Raesin Images Cosmetics may provide effective coverage of blemishes and wrinkles.
- The products can only be purchased from the official website with a Paypal payment which limits the customer base.
- No before and after photos are provided to substantiate claims about Raesin Images Cosmetics.
- No stated return policy is available on the official product website for consumers who are not completely satisfied with their purchases.
- Raesin Image Cosmetics are, clearly, more of a makeup product/ concealer than a real wrinkle fighting treatment.
The Bottom Line
Raesin Image Cosmetics may appeal to those looking for a natural alternative to common makeup products. The official website offers a wide selection of makeup products available in many colors. Mineral makeup has a reputation for producing effective coverage for blemishes and other skin issues however there are no anti-aging benefits to the makeup itself. The Raesin Image Cosmetics anti-aging skin care seems to only include basic ingredients; however some of the ingredients may be drying and irritating to the skin and may not produce the long term benefits that consumers desire. When shopping for an anti-aging product line, search for items that include proven anti-aging ingredients such as Argireline, Matrixyl 3000 and Real Collagen in order to achieve the desired result.
