Alva's Organic Deep Black Mascara - Review*

Boost Those Lashes!

This is my first product of two that was sent to me this month from the lovely people at MyPure. I decided to go for a mascara this time as I haven't found a good cruelty free vegan one so far, but that was until now! I ended up choosing the Alva 'Organic Deep Black' Mascara as I had seen quite a lot of good reviews on it and I wanted to try it out for myself.  

The Alva Organic Deep Black Mascara states that it boosts lash volume for exceptionally radiant eyes and is run-proof thanks to gum Arabic (acacia). It also provides more volume for lashes and brings exceptional radiance to the eyes. Alva also say that it's vibrant and is nourished by patented beta glucan, wild rose oil, natural vitamin E and candelilla wax.

Now bearing in mind that I haven't worn any make-up for the past four months due to not feeling the need to, as soon as I received my products I really wanted to try out my new mascara. So I curled my lashes with my eyelash curler and got to work with the new mascara. This is the only mascara I have ever smelt and thought 'yum!' after smelling it, I would describe the smell as a strong but non-lingering sweet marzipan and almond scent. I found the brush to be just the right size for me and it was comfortable to hold and easy to use which is always a good thing for a mascara. I also found that you don't need many coats of this mascara to give your eyelashes definition and extra length. Like previous mascaras I've used in the past this one doesn't seem to clump my eyelashes together and it doesn't go dry and flakey, like other vegan and cruelty free mascaras I have read about do. And when It came to taking the mascara off I found it so easy when removing it as it all came off in a just few wipes when just using water on a cotton pad!

So as you can see I found this mascara so good that I don't think I'll be searching around for another one!
