By all appearances, Almay Pure Blends is a great product for someone who is environmentally/health conscious and doesn't want to put harmful chemicals in her body.The good points:The label states the lipgloss is 95.8% natural, hypoallergenic, and contains antioxidants- acai, lotus and orchid blend. The product is also talc and paraben free. Its packaging is also minimal- just a few pieces of plastic. The product comes in a variety of natural shades, and the gloss is shiny and very true to color. Each tube contains 0.46 fl oz.The bad:Unfortunately, this lipgloss smells like Play-Doh that's been handled by 30 kindergarteners! Not sure how it even made it out of product testing. For a product that is applied directly under the nose, this is a BIG problem. Perhaps the strong odor is due to the lack of fragrance in the lip gloss (an original reason for purchasing the item). Maybe all lip gloss smells like this, but other manufacturers cover it up! Almay should reconsider their formulation and add some essential oils which can improve the scent. This seems to be a problem with all colors (Heather and a nude shade tested). Bottom line: Don't waste your money.
