Growing up, my mom was a health and healthy lifestyle advocate.
We would drive miles and miles to a natural food store with dirt floors and pick up bulk food at a co-op. It was no question, that if the meat had antibiotics in it, we didn’t get it. We also made our own calcium pills from egg shells and HAD to drink the full glass of carrot juice, no chaser! I remember shopping with her and a butcher was laughing at my mom when she asked if there were any antibiotics in the meat. I even felt uncomfortable that she ALWAYS asked what the ingredients were or the mode of food preparation, especially when it was’t listed. In addition, she ALWAYS used clean beauty, lipstick without junk she said, and never were allowed to use conventional baby soap. All that to say, she was not only before her time, her actions are respectable. She was our advocate. She wanted to give her 4 children a legacy of good health and a healthy constitution, and guess what, I do too.
A PR company sent some Beauty Counter lipstick , and I guess you could say that changed everything. I didn’t just love it, I LOVED it!! It wasn’t just the perfect color, it was moisturizing, and minty. I only regret that my son got into it and the better half of it sits on his shirt. Since we eat 9 lbs of lipstick in their lifetime, I care about the amount of toxins in my lipstick. This is fortified with jojoba and castor seed oil. If you’re curious, they list the ingredients by the product description.
Atalie is going on 13 years old and there is NO WAY I am giving her junk in the form of toxins and things I can’t even pronounce.
Clean beauty is the future.
Did you know that Beauty Counter restricts 1800 ingredients from their products? That’s almost 2,000 ingredients you don’t want to put on your face or skin. Which is your largest organ. Whether you’re a cancer fighter, survivor, or concerned parent like myself, Clean beauty is the future. As far as makeup goes, I’ve always been a fan of the barely there and healthy glow makeup look. If someone is caked in foundation, you can see that, and I’ve worn it before and it feels like an unhealthy mask, I can’t wait to take off. I won’t name names, but the last time I used conventional foundation by a very well loved brand, I was sitting in church, 11 am or so, and my skin was tightening and I found myself looking in my bag for a facial spray because my skin was SO DRY. I want my makeup to have minerals in it, I want my makeup to help my skin not hurt it. I want my makeup to have vitamins that make my skin G L O W. because when skin in healthy it already glows with minimal makeup.
I now am a Beauty Counter distributor. Which means I get sneak peaks of cool products, discounted product, and commission to support my family. ASK ANY QUESTIONS.
I’m still learning about the toxic free revolution that Beauty Counter that has hit the beauty industry. My only regret is that, I started too late.
