Forever Pure Review & Giveaway**Closed**

I have some really awesome products to share with you tonight from Forever Pure! I was sent a mixture of skincare and makeup products and I have to say that I was blown away by how great they felt and how well they did under the Georgia heat and humidity that we are famous for down here!
Here is what I was sent to review:
1.)  BB Cream
2.) Green Apple Eye Serum
3.) 100% Natural Lip Gloss
Let's start with the BB Cream. I have to tell you that this was a very rich and luxurious feeling cream and it reminded me sort of like a primer. It had an awesome calming effect on my skin and got it ready for the foundation or powder that I switch back and forth on depending on what I am doing that day.
Key ingredients and their purpose:
~Skin rejuvenating peptides Argireline known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
~Aloe gentle moisturizers used to soften and hydrate the skin
~Powerful & proprietary combination of fruit extracts antioxidants for anti-aging
~Vitamin A – known to improve skin texture, smooth skin texture Vitamin E rich in anti-oxidants.

Those key ingredients make this BB Cream do exactly what it has to live up to it's name. It is an anti-aging cream, a primer and a moisturizer all rolled into one! So, you can just use this one step and by pass the other two, save some time and money! It has a pleasant scent so it's not one of those medical smells that I sometimes run across.

The next product is the Green Apple Eye Serum and I really did love this one ALOT! It actually had a faint green apple scent to it that made it have a really pleasant scent.  This is a very powerful eye cream that can do several things. You won't need much so go slow on the pumping until you get the right dosage mastered. It really did feel awesome going on and it was cool to the feel under my eyes.

Forever Pure's description:
Our Green Apple Eye Serum helps diminish fine lines and dark circles. It can be used day, night and under make-up. It was formulated to firm and tighten skin around the eyes, as it moisturizes and renews tender skin. Our serum protects against elastin deterioration caused by aging.

Now, this Lip Gloss is really something to brag about! It's Gluten Free because of a rice bran oil that is a form of Vitamin E, it's natural and it has a natural SPF that comes from Red Raspberry Seed Oil! Now, I am not sure what the color is since it's not marked on the tube but it looks a lot like the Twilight Bronze.
The best part of all, it is free of lots of the bad ingredients! Take a look: No ingredients such as FD&C dyes, lakes, chemical preservatives, synthetics or petroleum by-products. They are just handcrafted lip glosses packed with moisturizing botanicals such as Shea Butter and are saturated with pure, crushed mineral pigments. Then they are scented with Natural Tangerine Citrus Flavor Oil. The flavor oils they use are 100% natural and do not contain alcohol or synthetics.
I really loved all of the products that I got to use from Forever Pure. And that is not the only products that they have. Gosh, they have an extensive line of makeup including eye shadows, blushes, foundations, bronzers, mascara, clay masks and they even have shaving cream products and hair care products.
Check out what made Christine open her own business:
I have always suffered with allergies and have very dry, sensitive skin.  I have always had a difficult time finding products that I was able to use that wouldn’t irritate my skin or accentuate and worsen the dryness.  I love ‘makeup’ and I love helping others find the perfect products for their skin so they can feel and look beautiful.  I love to wear makeup but I like it to look natural and just enhance my complexion.  I have always taken care of my skin and have always had an interest and passion in health, beauty and wellness.  
With all of the toxins and chemicals in everything we eat, put on our skin and come into contact with, it was important for me to only offer products that are not only safe but also good for your skin.  Nutrition for your skin is just as important as nutrition for your internal organs is.  Our skin is our largest organ and everything we put on it or come into contact with is absorbed into our blood stream.  It is not only important to eat healthy but also to use products that are safe and healthy for us as well. 
I recently found out that I have a gluten allergy so I went looking for products that not only are all natural and organic, but also are gluten-free. I have several friends who suffer with Celiac Disease so I wanted to be able to offer them an alternative to the cosmetics they are currently using.  I found mineral cosmetics several years ago but haven’t had a lot of success as they tended to accentuate my dryness and irritated the skin on my face.  After extensive research and testing of several brands by different manufacturers, I finally was successful and found one that offered exactly what I was looking for. 
It was about this same time that I decided I wanted to start my own brand and offer these all natural, organic, gluten-free cosmetics and organic skin care products to my friends and family as well as any new friends I meet in the future.  Since I have been using these products my face looks younger and healthier and my irritated areas are almost non-existent.  I get compliments on how ‘nice’ my skin looks.  This is due to these amazing products that I am now able to offer to you.
I saved two products to use in a giveaway because I wanted at least one of you to experience how awesome I thought this company is. I have a compact and a mineral crème foundation that I will be giving away.
