It’s no secret I love the Physician’s Formula Organic Wear Mascara.
Apparently, so does everyone else, because it is consistently out of stock at pretty much every drugstore and Target I venture into, and fairly hard to locate online.
So I needed a Plan B for natural mascara. Especially because I throw out my mascara every 4-6 weeks and I had held onto my one tube of Organic Wear Mascara for over 10 weeks. I knew I could go back to the Tarte all natural mascara, but I really wanted a drugstore mascara.
Enter Almay’s Pure Blends Voluminizing Mascara, which is also paraben-free and made up of 97.5% of naturally-sourced ingredients (in comparison the Organic Wear Mascara boasts 100%). The wear of the Almay is similar to the Organic Wear, though I think the Almay makes my lashes a little more coated. It doesn’t run or flake, so that’s good news.
And, most importantly, it’s at every CVS between my office and home AND on drugstore.com.
As for which I would pick between the Almay and the Organic Wear? I think Organic Wear might have a tiny edge, just because I really loved the way my lashes felt when I was using it, but I like Almay almost as much and I love that it’s so much easier to find.
