I'm not perfect. And not when it comes to clean beauty either.
I adore sharing new products I'm smitten with, DIY recipes, and powerhouse ingredients that amp up the volume on your green lifestyle. But we all have weaknesses, and I'm no exception. I use an exfoliator that only has one ingredient I recognize: water. I could whip up my own sugar scrub with ingredients in my kitchen in about 1 minute, so why do I keep using my Strawberry Lemonade & Paraben Body Scrub? I can't stand waste. It's why I've befriended the to-go box and composting.
Okay. I'll throw it out when I get home.
Ever painted on the seductive smokey eye and needed more sizzle? Same. Fake eyelashes were one of my favorite choices for a punch of pizazz. I've ranted about it before, mascara was more trouble than it was worth. Fake lashes were easier. But you know that little tube you use to glue them to your lids? Not a pretty cocktail of chemicals, that one.
And then there's lipstick. It takes some time to find the right shade for your pout. And sometimes, once you leave the glare of fluorescent lights, your purchase doesn't look like you thought it did. You have to go back and start all over again. I have a few tubes that I'm not ready to toss; too much time was spent getting it just right. Once I polish them off I'll opt for the squeaky clean Ilia, Vapour, RMS or Hemp Organics lipsticks.
Your turn. I want to hear about what you can't bear to part with. What product just has no replacement? And what brand do you have some unexplainable, inane attachment to?
