Physicians Formula Natural Origin CC Mascara Review

Physicians Formula Natural Origin CC Mascara2

Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin CC Curl + Care Mascara ($9.95) is a new curling boosting mascara that promises 24 hours of wear paraben formula.

The mascara is formulated to add curl and volume to lashes but also is 100% Natural Origin with lash nourishing and conditioning ingredients.

Take a peek!

Physicians Formula Natural Origin CC Mascara

I get a little confused by products like Physicians Formula Natural Origin CC Mascara because we have so many variations at this point of the Natural Origin Mascara formula currently in rotation and all of them look and feel identical to me.

This does have a curved brush fro application which adds a hint of curl to lashes but not as much volume. The brush is able to curl under the lash line and pull lashes upwards and under for a fluttery finish but the formula doesn’t necessarily hold curl. This doesn’t leave lashes clumpy, stuff, or crunchy and on my drier eyes wore for a solid eight hours and easily removed after without smudging or flaking.

Overall, Physicians Formula Natural Origin CC Mascara is a one trick pony formula for me that delivers some curl but doesn’t necessarily offer any real volume or lenght. It unfortunately doesn’t stand out as a must have product but might be worth checking on should you grab it on sale.

    I was looking at whether or not I should purchase this product! I’ve been looking for a mascara that doesn’t cause my eyes to get dry and red–which I never had until I started wearing mascara every day 🙁 I also need it to be waterproof because my eyes water like crazy when I yawn. I would still like to wear mascara every day but I haven’t found something that doesn’t irritate my eyes. I’ve used the Covergirl Clump Crusher, Maybelline One by One, Benefit’s They’re Real! (liked it but does not stand up to my watery eyes), L’Oreal Power Volume Collagen Waterproof Hydrofuge Mascara (was totally not waterproof even though it claimed to be), Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara (again, not waterproof even though it claimed to be), and Maybelline’s the Falsies mascara (not in waterproof so smudged like crazy). Should i just not use mascara every day? Is it something in the waterproof mascara formula that bothers me because regular mascara doesn’t irritate my eyes.

      this is actually has a good formula for sensitive eyes cindy and I had no issues with fading/flaking it’s just the formula didn’t do what I wanted/needed…I needed a bit more volume and length 🙂 I don’t really know Cindy, it could be anything causing the irritation and it’s entirely up to you if you do not want to use mascara daily, doesn’t seem a good idea if it is irritating your eyes, perhaps discuss options for formulas with other sensitive eye users or your eye doctor. I don’t have sensitive eyes so I’m not really sure on a recommendation for a formula that will completely eliminate your issue and unsure what ingredient it would be causing the problem. Sorry!

        That’s cool. I’ll try asking my optometrist since I have an eye check up in a couple of weeks. Thanks for helping though. 🙂

      Cindy, Have you tried Origins mascara? It’s supposedly great for people with sensitive eyes. However, I don’t know if it’s waterproof. I love Benefit’s They’re Real. My eyes water too and so far I haven’t had them smudge on me. The key is, and what I do, is wear mascara on the top lashes but not on the bottom lashes.

      • Cindy

        Which is the specific one you recommend/heard about? I usually only wear mascara on my top lashes since my bottom lashes are pitiful, even with mascara on them >.< I might just be applying too much or something.

      I would try Almay. Everything they make is supposed to be hypo allergenic. I’m not a fan of Almay but I sell loads of it. You won’t find an organic mascara that’s waterproof though. They’re impossible to make.

      • Cindy

        Ah darn. I guess I will try one by Almay. Or just give up on mascara and try false lashes instead.

  • Karen

    My favorite mascara is “They’re Real” from Benefit Cosmetics. Have you tried it? It really does make my eyelashes look thick and long like I am wearing false eyelashes 😀

    Have you tried it?

  • Elena S

    Cindy, I on occasion have dry sensitive eyes and swear by Clinique mascaras.

  • Monica

    Not a fan of this even though I love everything Physicians Formula. I always recommend L’oreal’s Power Volume Collagen in Waterproof (I work in cosmetics at a drugstore). Benefit’s They’re Real is amazing but I wear false on top every day. Not a fan of Canmake’s GoKobuto even though I wanted to be.

  • lara / the glossarie.

    this smudged horribly on me! (i do have world’s most watery eyes) i was so sad because i wanted to love it.

  • Maria A

    I have the green and one day my eyes were watery and it got into my eye and stung/burned like a mofo. I just can’t get over that. No other maascara has ever done that. Any thoughts? It wasn’t a bad batch b/c same thing happened with another one. : ((( It works great but that was the downside for me.

    • Emily S

      I experienced the same thing! I’m thinking it has something to do with the orange water as orange is quite acidic.
