Review: Tarte ReCreate Foundation with Wrinkle Rewind

Pros                                                                              Cons                         
-Effective, easily blended                                               -Rated a 5 (Moderate Hazard) on EWG 
-Broad spectrum SPF coverage                                     -Price ($37)
-No parabens, mineral oil, or phthalates                         -non-signer to the Compact for Safe Cosmetics  
-No fragrance
-Recyclable packaging

Conclusion: I'm kind of sad that this product didn't get a good score on the EWG Skin Deep database because I really like the way it looks and feels on my skin, and I generally trust Tarte as a green company. And though this foundation is a bit expensive, a little goes a long way, and the coverage lasts all day, so the bottle will probably last me months! However, when I do run out, I'll probably look for a product that scored better with EWG and that doesn't contain potentially harmful chemicals like Aluminum Starch Octenyl Succinate, Alumina, or Gold.
