You may have heard of Sweet Minerals (SM) and wondered why would I want to try a different brand? I’m using a mineral brand already, isn’t it just the same? The quick answer is no it’s not the same. I’m going to give you 10 things that make Sweet Minerals different from those other brands. I joined Sweet Minerals because of these differences and it is why I believe in these products with my whole heart. Let me explain the difference for you.
1. Sweet Minerals Recipes are Hypoallergenic
Hypoallergenic means that our products are less likely to cause allergic reactions. I have found that this has been especially great for a couple of my customers. One, in particular, had not been wearing mascara for years, because it would cause her eyes to have an allergic reaction. She had tried everything from drugstore brands to other direct sales brands that claim to be all-natural. Thankfully, she decided to trust me and give Sweet Minerals mascara a try, not really believing it would work. But to her surprise, it was true to its claim and she is now a mascara wearing beauty. If you have tried other makeup brands and still not found success I dare you to give Sweet Minerals a try. If it does cause a reaction you have 45 days to return it for a full refund.
2. Sweet Minerals is Ideal for Sensitive Skin
What’s the difference between someone who is allergic to a product and someone who has sensitive skin? Allergies come from a very specific ingredient. Every time that ingredient is applied there will be a red, itching reaction. Sensitive skin means that you will, most likely, experience tightness and burning that increases each time you use the product. I am someone who has very sensitive skin and I have found Sweet Minerals to be amazing for my skin. I do feel tingling with some products, which just shows they are working (enzyme masks do this), I no longer feel burning from products. We use only the best ingredients and organic whenever possible. This minimizes the risk of a reaction for sensitive skin.
3. Sweet Minerals is Non-Comedogenic
Non-Comedogenic means that our products will not cause your pores to be blocked. This is so important to help with acne and other skin issues. We don’t want our pores to be filled with gunk (yes, that’s a technical term, LOL). I love that I can apply our skincare products as well as our amazing Flawless Face and have full coverage but not have to worry about breakouts. This is the first product that I have used that has covered so well yet not caused an acne breakout. And the other products I used also claimed to be non-comedogenic. If you are prone to acne breakouts but want full coverage, I dare you to give Sweet Minerals a try.
4. Sweet Minerals Products Resists Perspiration
How many of you have ever put on a beautiful face of makeup to only step outside in the heat and have it all melt off? This is actually the number one reason I gave Sweet Minerals a try and joined the company. I needed something that would not sweat off. It’s not terribly hot where I live but because of different health issues, I sweat a ton! But because of the minerals used in our products with no fillers, they adhere to your skin like a magnet. I can even sleep with my face on, not recommended by the way, and I’m still looking good in the morning.
5. Sweet Minerals Products Resists Water
Yes, you read that right! You can actually go swimming in our makeup and come out looking just as good as when you went in. As long as you just pat your face dry instead of wiping it (because that would be washing it) it will last up to 16 hours on your skin. Even if you work out and sweat a ton or you are at the water park all day. Check out this video below of one of our founders taking The Flawless Face through its paces at the waterpark!!
6. Sweet Minerals Contains Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Properties
Minerals are amazing things. Each mineral that is in our products not only helps one age range of people. They each help in a different way for everything from acne to age-defying and to mature skin. Let’s just take one mineral as an example: boron. Boron helps people with acne or younger skin because it is naturally anti-bacterial and helps blur large pores. It helps those in the 30-50 age range who need some age-defying by blurring fine lines. And then it helps those that are 50 plus and have mature skin by helping to blur wrinkles. I’m so sold on mineral makeup because of these anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that keep me looking young and heal my skin.
7. Sweet Minerals Protects from UVA & UVB Skin Damage
You may have heard of Titanium Oxide and Zinc Oxide. These are two natural sunscreens that create a physical layer that does not allow sun damage. I have tried some natural sunscreens that contain these two ingredients and they dried out my skin and felt gross. However, when they are in our Flawless Face they have no yucky feeling on the skin and are not drying. In fact, you can hardly tell you are wearing the Flawless Face.
I had an experience that truly proved to me that these two powerhouses help with the sun. I was at the lake all day for my children’s birthday. Like a pasty white girl, I put sunscreen everywhere. I didn’t do anything on my face since I was wearing The Flawless Face. Apparently, I did not apply it very well at my hairline. When I got home I had a very strange burn just at the top of my head by my hair. LOL That proved to me that it truly works!!
8. Sweet Minerals Offers an Amazing Guarantee
We’ve been talking about what makes our products so amazing, especially our flagship product The Flawless Face. Now I want to switch gears for these last few and share with you what makes the company amazing. Not only do you want a product that is natural, but you also want the company to be ethical.
One of the most amazing things that Sweet Minerals does is they offer a forever guarantee on containers and brushes. They also have a 45-day return or exchange policy on any of our products. That means you don’t have to feel worried about trying something new. If you find out that you have the wrong shade or that the skincare you invested in is not working for your skin type or that red lipstick turns orange on you, you can either exchange it for the correct shade or you can return it. I love the peace of mind that brings.
9. Sweet Minerals Has No “Rules”
Most direct sales companies have a long list of policies and procedures. They tell you where you can sell, how you can sell, what fonts you can use, what colors, etc. Some of them are so restrictive it can be scary to do anything. That is not the case with Sweet Minerals. Our fabulous founders are entrepreneurs themselves that believe in the entrepreneurial spirit. They have allowed us to treat our businesses like our own. I have been in direct sales for over 20 years and it is still hard for me to believe sometimes how much freedom I have with Sweet Minerals.

10. Sweet Minerals Has Passion
This last difference has a double meaning. Not only are we passionate about high-quality, natural, non-toxic, cruelty-free makeup and skincare, but we are passionate about helping others. That is actually what we call how we give back as a company, it is our passion. The main organization that we help is the Ronald McDonald House in Maryland. Each Ronald McDonald House as to raise their own money once they are up and running. This can make it hard since most people think that the donations at McDonald’s Restaurants help to keep them afloat. This is why we have chosen a single house to help. Not only do we help them financially but once a year some of our home office staff and the founders go and give makeovers and free makeup to the moms who are there with their children.
There are various ways that we collect money for our passion. We have s pennies for a passion that you can select at checkout to make a donation. There also is the Love and Kisses Lip Gloss where part of the proceeds go to charity. We are very passionate about helping women and in addition to the Ronald McDonald House we also help other charities.
