This post is brought to you by Beauty Counter.
I am so glad that I was introduced to Beauty Counter; this is the first time I have ever really thought about how harmful the toxins in my beauty products are and how I should be committed to using organic products for my long-term health. Their goal is to, “…get safe products into the hands of everyone.” I have tested five of their products, seen above, for the past two weeks and absolutely love them! Going organic with your beauty products does not mean you are sacrificing in quality; the Concealer is just like the Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) concealer pen in terms of application and coverage quality; it goes on smooth, covering imperfections without looking “cakey.”
The Lustro Sugar Scrub is perfect for me because I have such dry skin and sometimes get these tiny bumps on the backs of my arms ( I know, so embarrassing, but true). Each time I have used it, my skin has been so smooth, free of the dry-skin issue, and I have not had to use lotion afterwards..amazing!! If you travel a good bit or love the outdoors, you would really like the Rosewater Uplifting Spray; I have been using it when I get hot driving around in my car, laying out by the pool, or pack it for a long-hike.. the, “organic rose essence and purified water combine to nourish skin and create a dewy glow.”
I have been using the Routine Clean Facial Cleanser with my Clarisonic brush…the, “organic coconut oil simultaneously removes buildup while moisturizing and softening skin.” Lastly, the Peony Lip Gloss is my new go-to lip gloss for the perfect finishing touch…this color looks great on all skin tones and is not sticky (something I hate about most glosses).
Every day, we are surrounded and impacted by thousands upon thousands of toxins and harmful chemicals in the environment, our food, and in home and beauty products. Do we ever stop to think about how this is influencing our long-term health? There are many things that we cannot avoid or directly control, but we can choose which products we purchase and ingest on a daily basis. Do your part today to positively influence your health and the organic beauty industry…our country is so far behind other countries when it comes to protecting us from harmful toxins!
