This is my first ever Worry Free Wednesday and I could NOT be more excited! The products and tips and tricks I’ll be sharing on here vary so much, but the one thing they all have in common is that they reduce stress in my life!
Obviously we all have different needs, different standards, and different stress triggers, but hopefully from time to time, I’ll share something that helps you!
So first up for Worry Free Wednesday is…….
The charcoal cleansing bar, sold by Beautycounter, is seriously my new favorite worry free product! As advertised by beauty counter, the charcoal cleansing bar “detoxifies and absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. Made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.”
Y’all, the first thing I want to point out about this is that is literally does NOT dry out your skin. So why is that a big deal for Worry Free Wednesday? I have incredibly dry skin. Almost any skin product I have ever used has dried out my face even more than it already was. So I have always found myself in a dilemma. Do I use a product that really cleans my face but dries it out, or do I sacrifice the cleanliness of my face to prevent it from being dry?
I no longer have to make that compromise! I can have a detoxified face that isn’t dried out!
This might not seem like a big deal to some, but for me, it’s massive. I have never been able to use a face wash or cleanser without worrying about how it will effect me in the moments and hours following. I have seriously stood in the beauty section at Target reading labels on face wash for hours on end, only to regret my decision.
No more regrets. I am sold on the charcoal cleansing bar, and I am never looking back!
Okay, so what else makes this worry free?
The ingredients! Beautycounter is constantly working towards safe skincare with safer ingredients. The company is very honest and upfront regarding what is in their products. They don’t make claims regarding being 100% safe, chemical free, or completely organic. Instead, they share every ingredient and where it was sourced, and boldly state that they aim to be as organic as possible. They have a list called the “never list” that they use to determine whether or not an ingredient is allowed. The Never List includes over 1500 ingredients that have been banned by the European Union. Beautycounter will never use those ingredients.
So what ingredients made the cut for the charcoal cleansing bar?
Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water (witch hazel)
Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil (safflower plant)
Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract (green tea plant)
Tocopherol (Vitamin E) (rapeseed or sunflower)
So not only can I wash my face and not have to worry about it drying out, I can wash my face and not have to worry about dangerous ingredients being absorbed into my skin!
There are so many health benefits to activated charcoal, it’s no wonder this product is Uh-Maz-ING!
Oh, and if you are into masks, there’s even a mask to accompany the cleanser!
You can check it out yourself at Beautycounter and get one for yourself! One bar of soap, when used daily, can last up to six months (if not longer)!!! It’s hard milled, which is different than many soaps, so it just naturally holds up longer. And that’s just one less thing to worry about. No one wants to spend money on a quality product that runs out a week later!
