The day has come to talk, Beautycounter. A lot of you know the bits & pieces of my allergy struggle the past few months. Unfortunately, it’s snowballed into more than a pesky lil mosquito. I decided I’ll open up more about that subject soon! I have to think about exactly how & what I want to explain, as it’s a pretty sensitive subject…
One thing I always thought would be an overwhelming task, was to change out all of my foods + all my products to be safer. It’s intimidating! Not to mention expensive & a bit dramatic. I thought I did better than a lot of others, as far as safe food & safe products go, so that was enough. Likeee, I eat organic carrots mmmkay? I’m good.
But recently I’ve become uber aware of everything that’s going into my body (because allergies, boo) & a side effect of that has been my increased awareness of what I’m putting ON my body. What I put IN my body & ON my body organically became equally important.
Before I had a chance to overthink or stress over safe products, I found myself naturally being cautious of what was going on my skin & subtly making changes. With barely a hiccup. That’s the long story for why I finally wound up shopping at Beautycounter. For those that aren’t yet aware, Beautycounter’s Mission is “to get safer products into the hands of everyone.” Here’s some scary information for you to digest: “Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30 to date.” (via)
Super chill, right?
But my point here is not to scare you, because that doesn’t necessarily work. Like I said, I wanted to try a few products because of my allergies & it’s taken off from there.
I’m sharing the products I’ve been using for a month or more so you can get an honest opinion on whether or not you decide to start rotating a few of them through your beauty routines.
