Friends! i decided to become a beauty consultant for a brand that i am extremely excited about thanks to @whitney_shaw who is a great friend and now my mentor. stay tuned because i am going to have a launch social soon 🙌🏼 *wine and good food included* 🍷 go check out the video on my facebook page for more information on the company, their products, and our mission 👍🏼 i think the thing that struck me the most when learning about these products is that the us only bans 33 chemicals from beauty, skincare, body care products - beautycounter bans 1500! that's insane!
Brush bath time!
great tools = amazing results
100% vegan, triple sealed fibers, super soft, luxurious brushes that are designed to avoid absorbing product!
take good care of them and they will last for years!! want to see how i care for mine? join my group for that and more! (link in bio)
I just received a video of a woman using a very popular bath soap to degrease a pan!! so, you might be washing your body with a soap that is powerful enough to remove grease built up on pots and pans!! the cosmetic industry is not regulated, so it's up to us to investigate and make better choices!
Repeating this one more time. always has been and always will be necessary. woc are not marketing strategy or afterthought. why i do what i do. inclusion does not mean exclusion. ooo polish was created for women of color skin tones and is created and ran by an naija ikwerre woman and her helpful igbo husband and always will be lol 🙂
Giveaway: it is no surprise that i am obsessed with @lilylolousacanada non-toxic mascara. so i want to share it with you.
i ordered a second mascara to giveaway, because you need this in your life. why???? cause it's awesome and we need to protect our eyes from the harsh chemicals found in mascara.
conventional mascara can have some nasty stuff in it. i am talking carcinogens, major irritants like fragrances & formaldehyde releasing preservatives... such as dmdm hydantion, diazuli dinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea, methebamine. formaldehyde causes cancer. this is not a debate. many people do not realize they are allergic to it & suffer from "allergic contact dermatitis/eczema". dry chapped itchy skin or watery eyes....stay away from it.
some mascaras will have thimerosal: this is mercury based & is used as a preservative & antiseptic.
as for fragrances/parfum in mascara?? because you will often see it when coal tar dyes are used. they have a bad odour that needs to be masked & they contain heavy metals. they are labeled as fd&c or d&c followed by a colour & a number (fd&c red no. 6). finally, they are continuously tested on animals because of their known carcinogenic properties. don't forget to avoid mascara with parabens, petroleum distillates and phenoxyethanol. all wreak havoc on our systems.
i can go on...
so this is why you want lily lolo's non-toxic mascara. if you are afraid, don't be, it will b**w you away. proving there is no need for toxic conventional mascara when something as safe & glamorous as this exists.
to enter: follow me and tag three people you want to see this post, so that they too can learn of the dangers of conventional mascaras. let's take care of each other.
winner will be announced may 1st.
please note that this is a giveaway i purchased with my own money & am holding because of my love for lily lolo mascara & non-toxic beauty products. i am not a dr or a dermatologist. just a research j****e who loves credible resources. i encourage you to research as well.
