Do you use lotions? Sunscreen? Makeup? Take a look at these numbers…
I’ve partnered with Beautycounter, a brand who’s mission and products I have fallen in love with. The mission is to put safer products into the hands of everyone!
It all started having tried the Beautycounter makeup remover wipes. I felt like they actually washed my face instead of lathering more chemicals onto it. I loved the wipes and purchased some (including some eye cream), but my current makeup worked just fine so I figured that was good enough.
Soon after, I found out of was pregnant with baby #2. I signed up for The Bump so I knew what size fruit baby was throughout the pregnancy (very important, ha!). They send emails periodically and I received one that stated, “Skincare Ingredients to Avoid During Pregnancy.” I went through my makeup, shampoos, lotions, creams, sunscreen and EVERY SINGLE INGREDIENT was found. I did more research. I was disgusted. These ingredients are proven to cause serious health problems not only with me, but also my unborn baby. I was unknowingly lathering harmful substances onto my face and body every day. I immediately returned to the Beautycounter website and purchased safer options. “Heck, I may not like them but its worth a try.” Let me clarify, I was a drugstore $3 eye shadow girl. I bought what I needed and that was that. I’ve watched maybe one YouTube video on how to do a cat eye and that was as exciting as my makeup routine got.
But when my Beautycounter box arrived I was like a kid on Christmas. It was 9pm when I got the chance to open it and I took out all the makeup and tried it out. Y’all. I loved it. Not only the product itself, but the feeling that it was SAFE and extensively researched. No researching needed on my part.
Fast forward a few months and it was weighing on my chest that I didn’t want to keep silent of this gem I had found. I wanted to shout it to the world, my family and my friends (and I wanted the discount, haha!). I have joined with Beautycounter to promote clean skin care and get safer products into the hands of everyone.
If you want to learn more about better beauty, or are simply looking to switch up your skin care/makeup routine, please shoot me an email and I will be happy to direct you to the best options!
