Physicians Formula Bamboo Wear

Source: www.physiciansformula.com

This Spring, Physicians Formula debuts their Bamboo Wear collection. (Check out the Shimmer Strips collection here.)

The Bamboo Wear makeup and accessories line includes refillable powders in a sustainable Bamboo compact case with mirror and brush. There is also a huge kabuki brush (they call it Bambuki, hehe.) Although this line is a bit limited- it's just the basics- the concept is great. Instead of buying new products with new cases all the time, why not just buy the refillables and REUSE the compact?

My local drugstore is carrying these products, so I had to check them out. They are offering the cases for Free (with rebate), so hurry now to get yours!

My thoughts- First, this compact case is definitely based on their OrganicWear compacts concept (using 93% less plastic than traditional compacts). Also designed to eliminate waste, this is made of bamboo instead and more sturdy for reuse. They also improved the brushes- this one is softer and not as scratchy.

Dilemma- Looking at the ingredients of the powder and bronzer refills, I am a bit disappointed. I suppose I am used to the OrganicWear products which are 100% free of harsh chemicals and all that good stuff, so I'm biased. So, my solution would be to use the powders from the OrganicWear line, but that would be wasting the compact that already comes with it. So, what to do?

Physicians Formula... if you're reading this, please make refills of your OrganicWear line for the Bamboo Wear case, please!

Overall- I like the concept of refillables for this line, but would really like to see the powders be organic! For now, I am the happy owner of the compact and will keep looking out for more Physicians Formulas products!
