Some of My Favorite Things…

I moved recently.  Anyone that has ever moved before knows just how much it can throw off your routine until you settle into the new place, and this move was no exception for me. I didn’t cook at all for the last couple weeks and felt the toll the exhaustion and stress of moving was taking on my body. I noticed a big difference in my skin too. I was recently introduced to a beauty line, Beauty Counter, that has been so helpful since my skin breakouts recently that I had to share with you all!

I’d like to note that any product you see me market on my blog is a product that I truly love, because I only promote things that I think will benefit others like they benefited me. These particular products by Beauty Counter are especially great because they are made with all natural products and essential oils. The line was created by a mother who just wanted to find safer products to use on both herself and her family.

If you didn’t already know, there are about 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products — only 10% of those chemicals have safety data. The United States has not passed a federal law to regulate the ingredients used in personal care products since 1938. The European Union has spent the past two decades banning or restricting more than 1,300 ingredients. The U.S?… Only 11. Women absorb almost 5 pounds of toxic chemicals a year by using beauty products and 60% of what we put on our body goes right into our bloodstream. Our skin is our largest organ- we must take care of it!

Here’s one reason why I love Beauty Counter… they believe that our health should NEVER be compromised for beauty.
AMEN to that!
My favorite products so far have been their Soothing Face Wash, Radiance Firming Complex, and the Uplifting Day Cream. I love the way they all smell too!
