Ever since we started not feeling well about two years ago (more in this post and this post), we have been trying to make an effort to switch over some of our beauty products to more natural ones. We had honestly never thought about what we are putting on our body (just what was actually going in it). When you really start doing some digging, you realize there are a lot of products that are not as "safe", and we have really become our own advocates when it comes to our health because you're the only person who can really vouch for yourself!
One of our friends told us about a website called ewg.com, where you can look up any product and how safe it is! We didn't/haven't switch everything over just yet-- mainly our deodorant, makeup, skincare, body lotion, body wash, and sunscreen. We are not perfect with it, and will probably never be, but it is a start!
We found out about a company called Beautycounter, and were honestly pretty skeptical just because we had seen it on social media and hadn't tried it, but we decided to give it a shot and fell in LOVE! First off, we love what they stand for.
Most of the makeup we had been using (some, not all) had some ingredients that we didn't want to be putting on our skin daily. Beautycounter has something called the The Never List™, which is made up of more than 1,50o questionable or harmful chemicals they will never use in their products. When we started our health journey, we read up on how Europe and other countries have wayyyyy more restrictions when it comes to products used in personal care products, which is crazy!
