I am going to be honest with you. I have never really looked into what types of ingredients are in my skincare and makeup, nor have I really cared to research because who has the time? A few months back I attended an event put on by a dear friend of mine that is a Beautycounter consultant and a fellow blogger. It was eye opening and I was hooked. I immediately wanted to be a part of the mission. I am now a Beautycounter consultant and I am going to tell you why.
Did you know that there are only 30 ingredients that the US has banned to be used in products? THIRTY. 3-0. That is terrifying to think about. It has been 81 YEARS since the US has banned any harmful or potentially harmful ingredients. That’s right. The last time a harmful or potentially harmful ingredient for products was banned was in 1938. Your mind is spinning right? Confused as to how the Government could turn a blind eye to dangerous chemicals that people are going to put on their bodies? Me too. Because most of those government officials are using products as well. They could follow in the steps of the EU and ban over 1,400 harmful/potentially harmful. Or like Australia that bans over 600. Nope. Not the US.
Enter Beautycounter, the beauty company that is revolutionizing the industry. This wonderful company is on a mission to get safer products into the hands of consumers. Remember those numbers I told you about above? How the US only bans 30? Well, Beautycounter has their list, the Never List. The list of over 1,500 harmful ingredients that Beautycounter REFUSES to use in their products. They put the time and care during research and development to bring consumers the safest ingredients possible in their skincare and makeup. How fabulous is that?
I love everything about this company. Everything. Since I made the switch, my skin has completely transformed. Beautycounter produces product that is, not only safe, but it absolutely delivers results that you want. Their products are also very concentrated! Meaning a little bit goes a long way. Meaning you don’t have to worry about purchasing more product in one month because you had to use an obscene amount to get the results that you want.
Going to that event opened my eyes. What on earth was my body absorbing from the products I used from the drugstore and department stores? What harmful ingredients was I putting on my children? The thought makes me cringe. I have my own health issues (hashimotos disease – that is a story for a whole different blog post) and I never realized that the products that I was putting on my skin could contribute to how I feel or problems I may have later on down the road. That’s why I joined the #BetterBeauty movement. To be a part of something that is good for me and everyone. I’m on a mission to open peoples eyes the way that mine have.
Now that you have learned a little about the company and my why, I want to share to some of my favorite products, that I use religiously, with you!
If you would like to join the #BetterBeauty movement, I would love to have you on my team! Join here!
