How many of you chose “get healthy” as a 2017 resolution? I would venture to say that most of you did, but that it was only in the realm of your food intake and exercise, right? Have you ever thought about what you’re putting ON your skin? I’ve never been the person who is super concerned with the type of food that I eat. Do I try to make good decisions? Of course! But the reality is – that for me, and my family right now that’s it hard. I know, I know, I know….I can hear all the healthy people now saying “Sarah, it’s not that hard”….I challenge each one on you to come and spend ONE day in our house. We are lucky if we can get our eldest to eat, let alone eat something new and different. You know the whole “choose your battles”? Well the food battle is not one that the hubs are I are tackling right now. We have paci’s and potty-training to handle first.
What I did find out though, is that there is an option for safe personal care products for me and the family. I definitely did not go searching for this, it kind of just fell into my lap – I even tried to push it off my lap, but that didn’t work! Skeptical is an understatement when I tell you I seriously wanted nothing to do with even trying the products! They sat on the counter for 24 hours before I thought that I should maybe try them. So being the awesome mom that I am, I tried them on my girls first, because let’s be for real….I was set with my products, they worked and I was not about the mess up my mojo. I know, mom of the year, ha ha!
I. WAS. FLOORED when I saw what the kids line did for my girls with one use! SPJ’s dry, wanna-be curly hair was now so soft with bouncy curls, PKJ’s fine, limp hair was bouncy and full of life! After another day of use, their skin was the softest it’s even been. Next up – the hubs, because remember I didn’t need anything! He has super sensitive and dry skin, to the point where his scratching gets annoying (I know I sound like such a brat, sorry honey), so I asked him to try the body wash. He shouted from the shower “wow this stuff is really good,” he could tell after ONE use that it made a difference. At this point I HAD to try these products, so I bit the bullet and went for it.
And then I became a Beautycounter consultant! I wanted to shout from the roof tops about the amazingness of these products, I wanted all my family and friends to know about them. But, it’s not just about the products. Yes, they are amazing, but the company itself is making changes. Did you know that prior to the latest law that was passed in regards to anti-bacterial soap last year, that there hasn’t been a law passed in the US pertaining to the personal care industry since 1938! That’s 78 years!!! The FDA allows companies to use chemicals known to be extremely harmful in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day, day after day, and to make their own judgments about safety.
I might not be able to win the food battle right now, but I can win the personal care product battle! The funny part is, it’s not even a battle anymore. The girls LOVE to take a bath and they always want to put lotion on!
I’ve had amazing success with my business so far, and it’s because the products sell themselves. They work! It’s amazing the number of people I speak with that didn’t realize that there’s so much that’s un-regulated in the personal care industry. As soon as they learn that the mission of Beautycounter is to get safer products in the hands of everyone, they want to become a part of that. I have amazing customers that have made the switch to safer products and team members that are helping to spread the mission and educate their family and friends.
I can honestly say that my skin has completely changed, for the better. I used to have topical medicine that I used for rosacea, and I was a Clinque girl because they had a product line specifically for it. Well guess what? I longer have to use the medicine, and my rosacea – yeah it’s gone! But in all seriousness, this company is amazing and it’s going places, fast!
