I like to think of myself as an intentional buyer. I do love convenience but more importantly I want to know that my
family is making a minimal footprint on this beautiful earth we have stewardship over, that the products we are consuming in and on our bodies are contributing to our well being, and my favorite: that my purchases can make a lasting impact on someone somewhere in the world. This is another one of those areas that I have wished someone would just hand me a list of the healthiest most ethical companies and save me some time! Well, after years of searching for that list and lots of research I’ve got a few faves of my own I’d love to share with you.
For us, this journey started around 5 years ago when I started learning the dangers of parabens and I made a goal to be a paraben free household in a year. I couldn’t financially justify throwing out all the products we’d been using and start over so I began with one product at a time. As one product ran out I’d buy more intentionally the next time, looking for products that fit the new standard AND were affordable.
So I’ve introduced a new post category, “Friday Faves”. Each time I’ll share with you a great product, book, food, business (and more!) that can bring a little more health, ease, quality time with your babes and affordable luxury to your lives!
This first one is just for you because, ladies, you are spectacular beautiful women who pour yourselves out for others day in and day out and you deserve to have eyelashes that touch your eyebrows without spending a fortune on lash extensions.
Thrive’s Liquid Lash Extensions was the first of their products I saw offered, but now they have a full line of healthy makeup. I’m gradually switching all of mine over… blush just arrived and lip gloss is on the way!
Why buy from Thrive Causemetics? Their products are paraben free and sulfate free (known cancer causers, BOO), 100% vegan and cruelty free, and for every purchase they donate services and products to women going through cancer treatment!
Get your doe eyes on, girls!
