I’ve read in various articles that our skin absorbs 60-70% of what we put on it. Yeah, that’s A LOT. Therefore I’ve recently become more interested in clean green cosmetics. That is, products with as many sustainable natural organic ingredients as possible. Those ingredients having been ethically sourced or wild crafted, and of high quality therefore potent. Products that use packaging made from recycled materials or is recyclable. I had converted a long time ago to natural shampoos, conditioners, body washes, face cleansers and toners from the health food store (all without sodium lauryl sulphate in particular because I found it dried me out unnecessarily), but had yet to find something that worked in every other area – namely moisturizers and make-up. I basically forgot about it until now – I think I’m becoming more aware since having a child. It’s a great time to think about green beauty because over the last little while, it looks like a bunch of high quality luxury green products have made their way into the existence.
My first order from Fresh Faced arrived Monday night from Toronto – I am crazy excited to try everything out. Purchases $75+ get free shipping, and the absolute best part is their sampling program. I tend to be a cautious shopper – I like to try products on my skin, give it a good whiff, think, read reviews on it, and repeat a hundred times. With no luxury green boutique around, how am I suppose to try things out? Thankfully at Fresh Faced, you can order samples from a wide range of products for only $0.75 each, up to 10 samples per order! I think that’s just amazing. Needless to say, I ordered 10 samples. And they throw in another 3 based on their sample stock – yes!! Shipping was also fast: I placed my order on a Wednesday, it was shipped out on Thursday, and at my doorstep the following Monday evening :D
As I said, I’m crazy excited to try everything out and share in future posts!
