As many of you know, I have been a bit obsessed with natural skin care. As I cleaned up my diet, the rest of my life just seemed to follow. I began to look at other sources of toxic exposure in my life: my cleaning product, my skincare products, and my make up. Little by little , I began to switch out more and more of the things that I used on a daily basis.
Confession time: I’ve had a really hard time giving up some of my favorite make up. I’ve tried several of the natural products on the market, but they just didn’t stay on like I wanted them too. I’m sort of a lipstick and mascara girl. Nothing else, but they have to look good.
But while doing research for my new book on natural skincare, I came across some scary facts:
- The average woman absorbs 5 lbs of make-up chemicals PER YEAR.
- The United States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.
- Only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have been tested for human safety.
- The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients, the US has only banned 11 to date.
Finally! A product that is safe and works!
After doing a lots of research and product testing, I have finally found a make up and skincare company that I love. Their make up looks and feels like the commercial make up I have been using, minus the crappy ingredients. Introducing Beautycounter!
I started out using the Beautycounter’s super clean sunscreen. I then fell in love with their awesome lipsticks and lip gloss. I’m a sucker for luscious lips. I recently also ordered their eye shadow and cream cleanser.
Oh, and they have a 60 day return policy!
