I decided to write this post because I’ve been getting some questions about my skin and what products I use. Honestly, my skin isn’t perfect, but it looks and feels healthy. And I love that I have peace of mind knowing that the products I’m using now won’t harm my health. I do believe that skincare comes before makeup, so if you want to know my current ride-or-die clean/non-toxic skincare products, keep on reading!Read More
I’ve spoken about my reasons on why I switched to using only clean beauty products in my past few posts but haven't really shared why I keep talking about Beautycounter.
So if you want to find out everything there is to know about Beautycounter is, keep reading!
⚠️PS: This post will contain a lot of important information so it will be a long post but totally worth reading.
There's a reason why my nurse told me to remove my nail polish when I gave birth to my daughter, and I'm sure you know that reason very well too! IT'S TOXIC!
I don’t remember the last time I wore nail polish on my fingernails for this reason, and honestly, I MISS IT! There’s just something about beautifully painted nails that make me feel good about myself; like I’m a woman who sees the value in taking care of herself! I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way. Well, lucky for me and my fellow nailaholics, there are safer options out there and I’m glad more and more brands are getting rid of a number of harmful chemicals from their nail polish formula! Londontown is one of these brands!Read More
Switching to using ONLY clean makeup" sounds pretty overwhelming and scary at first, I'm not going to deny that.
It is daunting for sure because it means you’re gonna have to commit and make sacrifices along the way . The road to #cleanbeauty is a tough one, but it’s actually not as hard as we think. I’ve been using ONLY clean makeup for two months now and so far, everything’s going well. I haven’t gone crazy (yet), considering that I am a makeup junkie. Today I’m going to share some tips on how to get started on making the switch!Read More
Did you know that most makeup products that are out in the market right now carry harmful chemicals that may even cause cancer, infertility, depression, asthma, diabetes, and chronic fatigue among many other things?
My mom and my grandmother passed away because of cancer, a disease that “just happens”, and my dad passed away from this rare disease that we also don’t know what causes it. What if these diseases were just effects of years of constant exposure to these thousands of harmful chemicals that we so conveniently put on our skin and bodies? Isn’t that a scary thought?!Read More
Did you know that The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938?
Over the past two decades, the European Union has banned close to 1,400 chemicals in the product formulas of personal care products and restricted the levels of over 250 more in such products. The United States has only partially banned 30! 3o!!! With all of that said, it’s scary to think that there are thousands and thousands of harmful chemicals in the products we use daily, from soaps, shampoos, house cleaning products, baby products, our skincare and makeup products, so on and so forth. And guess what? Brands still continue to produce products with these chemicals knowing that they are bad for us!Read More
In case you didn’t already know this about me, I am a skincare junkie!
I believe that skincare should be a top priority over makeup. Based on experience, my makeup just looks so much better when my skin looks and feels amazing. You feel me?

Nowadays, in my makeup routine, less is definitely more!
To my fellow mommies, you know exactly what I mean. We simply have got no time to do a full face of cake-face! Amen? I’m not gonna lie and I’m a little ashamed to admit this, but I had a really challenging time cutting down the makeup products that I use on my face! I was so used to a full blown makeup look that I forgot to work with what I got: my natural beauty!Read More
