health!

Just as I chat about how important it is you understand what you put IN your body, it’s just as important to understand what you put ON your body. DYK: there are more than 80,000 chemicals available on the market today (thanks to Beautycounter for the information!). Even more upsetting is the fact that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA; they are the agency in charge of overseeing and regulating all food and drug, including cosmetics, in the United States) does not have the means to remove all the harmful ingredients found in our day to day products. I am not one to take makeup advice from, but I am a big supporter of high quality skincare. There are three companies that I stand behind for amazing skincare products: Revival Body Care, CocoKind and Beauty Counter. Just like most women, I have tried sooo many products with disappointment. I have pretty bad rosacea so my face is extremely sensitive. I finally came across these 3 brands and I won’t be looking back.

beautycounter

I love everything about this company. The drive, the hustle, the compassion for others and most importantly, the high quality products. They are at the forefront of pushing for safer products (of note, the United States has not passed a major federal law regulating personal care product ingredients since 1938!!). Beautycounter is setting the standard for health and safety products beyond what is required by US Law. Beautycounter has prohibited the use of more than 1,500 harmful chemicals in their products (remember, only 30 chemicals have been banned to date in the US whereas European Union has over 1,400 banned chemicals). On the website, they provide an ingredient glossary that allows the consumer to understand and know every.single.ingredient. used in the products. You can’t be any more transparent than that!  

cocokind organic skincare

Cocokind is certified Organic and socially conscious skincare line handcrafted in San Francisco by some badass women. Cocokind products are also cruelty-free and never tested on animals. Instead, the natural and organic products are always tested by the Cocokind team. Yes please! I came across this line while shopping at Whole Foods and I have been obsessed ever since! Some of my favorite products: Organic Sea Moss Exfoliator and Organic Rosewater Facial Toner – these two products are definitely some of my favorite skincare products used to date. I use the Organic Sea Moss Exfoliator 3-4 times weekly on my face and the Organic Rosewater Facial Toner I use multiple times daily.

Revival Body Care

If you can’t tell by now, I am huge Clevelander and I love to support local businesses. Revival is a local line of all natural skin (+ lip and hair) care that uses only Organic, Fair Trade, 100% vegan ingredients. This means the products are without use of chemicals, toxins, artificial colors, fragrances or fillers. Can I get an Amen!? Another reason I love Revival is because so much thought is behind every ingredient used in their products, with explanation. If you go to Revival’s site, it explains what each product is, the ingredients found in that particular product and why it is used as well as the benefits. Did I mention it’s handcrafted in small batches in Cleveland already? :) My personal favorite products: Body Scrub (Coffee & Rosehip + Green Tea & Coconut are my go-to’s), Boho Babe Sea Salt Spray and Cinnamon and Sugar Lip Scrub.

FRÉ Skincare

FRÉ Skincare is the first ever skincare line designed for women who work out, or for skin that often sweats. It's like this skincare line was designed specifically for me. As a former college athlete and someone who continues to stay active, I swear by it. Best of all, FRÉ is designed to be incorporated as a daily skincare routine. FRÉ products are all natural and never tested on animals. Last but not least, with every skincare set you buy, FRÉ plants an Argan Tree (know as the "Tree of Life"). Planting Argan trees has a multi-layered impact by creating sustainable development, protecting the environment and empowering women who harvest Argan oil in Morocco. If I haven't convinced you yet to try this, use my discount code BETH1 for 15% off your FRÉ order!
