Non toxic makeup WOC

Well Hello There!

We are more than one full month into 2019 and we even survived a “snow day” here in Atlanta! Ari waited ALL day for the snow to appear — and well — it didn’t. Not even any rain really.

I hope that 2019 is treating you well and that you are holding on to those resolutions even if you decided not to make any (like me and my non-resolutions) I’m sure you had some areas you want to improve lingering in the back of your mind.

This is a quick recap of what’s been happening on the clean beauty scene this past month! It’s basically what I include in my newsletter — you should definitely subscribe right here!

If you are short on time, and really who doesn’t feel that way these days. I’ve given you a recap of sorts below!

  1. Beyonce’s Makeup artist was talking about us! Beautycounter that is😉. Read for yourself here!

Let’s Talk Clean Beauty

Beautycounter’s DEW SKIN tinted moisturizer was mentioned in Marie Claire by Beyonce’s makeup artist! You can read the article here!

My Fav Take-Away From the Article…

The article was great and there are many informative ideas shared but, for the sake of brevity, THIS is my absolute favorite.

“Achieving the radiant glow of your dreams is all about having a skin-first, makeup-second mindset. “


Mic Drop! 

You maybe wondering, how can I adopt this “Skin-First, Makeup-Second Mindset”? We make is so simple.

  1. Take our Skincare Quiz — Find what’s right for you in less than a minute!
  2. Try Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage. Sheer Coverage, Sun protection + A Luminous Dewy Glow. And hear this —NO. WHITE. RESIDUE.

Valentines Day?!
It’s coming, and I Have Got You Covered.

For the Man or Men in your life? { Try our new COUNTERMAN LINE }  A line of safer, results-driven skin care for the good guys in our lives.

I recommend starting with either a COLLECTION or REGIMEN because it will…

  • Allow Him to Try Several Products and let HIM choose which He likes best.
    { Don’t you EVER forget about our 60 Day Return Policy, not that you’d ever want to make a return 😋 }
  • Allow you to spread the CLEAN LOVE even further. Simply divide a collection between all the guys in your life. { Think dad, brother, son, friend etc. }

For the LADIES, I recommend a little pampering. Or a lot!

Our NO.3 Balancing Facial Charcoal Mask would be perfect. Gift a spa experience to a friend or yourself, enjoy 2 to 3 times a week for intensive treatment and instant results.

  1. Light beautiful a Non-Toxic candle.
  2. Apply your Charcoal Mask.
  3. Sip a beverage of your choice.
  4. Grab A good book and enjoy!

Or, like in my case, just slather it on in the midst of you daily chaos. ☺

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 »
