I’ve spent the last year simplifying everything in my life. I love the minimalist movement and only owning what I use and love. There is something very freeing about that! Well, it’s about time I have simplified my beauty routine.
The chemicals that are in beauty products in the US are outrageous. In the European Union, they have more than 1,300 chemicals BANNED in personal care products. The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938.
I want to know what I am putting on my skin. I only want to use wholesome, natural ingredients.
This is why I LOVE the company Beautycounter. They have a “never list”- a list of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals that they never use as ingredients in their products. That’s amazing.
I received the Charcoal Cleansing bar from my friend Gabi and instantly fell in love with it.
First of all- it’s black. I think that’s so cool and just a statement piece in the bathroom, for sure. Second, it’s made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil. It’s perfect for use on your face or body. The bar contains a special type of charcoal powder called Binchotan, which helps to thoroughly cleanse skin and draw out dirt, oil, and impurities.
Like I said, I instantly loved the bar. I have very sensitive skin- and tend to break out easily. This bar calmed my face down, brightened it up, and did it all without drying it out one bit. My favorite thing is the clean feeling in the face after. I know this bar deeply cleans because my face feels cleaner than ever after using it. My husband loves it too- and that shocked me!
Also, another thing I discovered was to use the bar to wash my make up brushes! This is so amazing and leaves your brushes feeling AMAZING.
I can’t recommend this bar enough. It works great and it is made from the best ingredients. Do yourself a favor and simplify your beauty routine and only use the BEST INGREDIENTS for your skin.
