You NEED this TOXIN Eradicating Facial Bar! The Power of Charcoal!

I have a confession to make. Promise not to be judgey?

I used to wash my face with hand soap. Not the good stuff I’m using now, but plain old, bad for you HAND soap!

OK, now that that’s off my chest let’s move on.

Now that I’m 30 something I’ve gotten a bit more sophisticated with my skin care regimen (If you’d like a regimen recommendation take this quiz) I’ve transitioned from only caring about how I appear outwardly to caring 100% more about my health. OH and prevention!

Taking preventative measures to preserve my health and the quality of my skin have become my focus. Why wait until the wrinkles settle in, or dryness causes loss of elasticity or the these harmful ingredients allowed in our products take my health away? There’s no reason to wait! Read More »

I’ve been using Beautycounter (BC) for over a year now. Becoming a consultant definitely has its perks, like being able to sample IT ALL!

beautycounter natural organic makeup

Making the choice to use cleaner beauty and skin care products was mostly easy. I had to get over the fact that the good stuff, requires more money. But, my health and the health of my family is worth it to me. It was much like making the switch to organic foods.

After all I’m going to spend the money somewhere, might as well make it count!

Now, not all of my products come from BC but I make a very conscious effort to make sure the products I use most days of the week are SAFER and CLEANER. Same with our foods — not ALL are organic but I always try to buy the dirty dozen organic … and dairy and meats.

It’s hard to believe the number of ingredients that are allowed in our cosmetics here in the US. Only 30 are banned here in the states, 600 in Canada and 1400 in the European Union…

at Beautycounter we ban over 1500 harmful or questionable ingredients!!!

Last week I shared WHY I choose Beautycounter over other “natural” brands, you can check that out HERE!

Let’s get to the fun stuff!

I recently started my very own business with Beautycounter as a consultant. I am motivated, & invigorated to be a part of such a movement although a bit nervous — it’s an obvious choice for me.

Who doesn’t want the best for their families especially their children who are completely reliant on us for all their needs.

We buy organic foods, we Berkey filter our water, we limit sugar and food colors we use safer cleaning products, deodorants, body wash, and toothpaste. I even make our lotion (when I have the time), we drink from stainless steel bottles and have been decreasing our use of plastic in general. Of course we recycle. In the grand scheme of things my list is extremely short. There’s so much more we could be doing but — One. Step. At. A. Time. Otherwise I’d just give up and crawl in to a hole!

I say choose your battle… THEN go all out! Once you’ve won that battle move to the next! Read More »

I Tried Three Foundation Applicators, Silicone, Brush & Foam. Here’s What Happened.

Becoming a mom has transformed me into a health junky of sorts. Over time I’ve made small, but consistent changes to the foods I put into my body, and now, I’m slowly making better choices about the products I use on my skin.

I was introduced to Beauty Counter’s line of products by a friend. It took me a year or two, but I’ve finally started using their foundation. I think I love it! I heard they will be coming out with more shades for us brown girls soon! In addition to wanting more natural less toxic makeup, I was ready to upgrade to what I call “grown up” products. The drugstore brands have served me well externally, but you can’t judge a book by its cover and now my internal health is my priority.

I’ve always used a foam wedge, to apply foundation and I love the results—  but I came across two other options and decided to try! Here’s what happened! Read More »
