SATURDAY, AUGUST 20TH 2016
After driving in the car for over an hour in a half, we finally made it! One of my favorite clients, Star had invited me to her home for a cosmetics party…
A month ago, she was in the Club House telling me about this cosmetics line that she had just been introduced to. She was explaining to me that the cosmetics being sold today aren’t safe for our skin. Little do we know, they are full of toxic chemicals that the company’s behind the products refuse to tell us about. They do such a tremendous job at marketing the ingredients as being “natural” or “organic” but don’t fully explain how the products are made or what exactly they’re made with. It was a little disturbing to know that most of the products that I have been using on my skin every day were actually harming me.
Of course, I was the last person to arrive but I walked in right before it actually got started. There were so many different products set up around the room. I was like a kid in the candy store! But before we could test out the products, we had a quick little session about what Beauty Counter is and their mission as a company.
“The United States has not passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938”.
I learned so much about the company as a whole and their overall mission. They plan to get safer products in the hands of everyone by educating people on the products through social gatherings. Beauty Counter aims to source ingredients from sustainable, non-GMO suppliers. They do not test products on or ingredients on animals nor human beings. Unlike other makeup lines, they’re very transparent on what their products are made out of as far as the known components of fragrances, flavors and intentionally added preservatives. Now, they’ve only been around for about 3 years so they don’t have every single product yet but there is more to come.
Products on the way:
Beauty Counter will also be in all Target locations soon for a limited time so look out for us!
Towards the end of the presentation, Erin, one of the consultants asked if anyone was interested in joining their team. This seemed like a really great opportunity for me and the perfect time to join. I thought it would go hand in hand with Trunk Club and it would be an excellent way to help grow my business. An opportunity was knocking and I HAD to take it!
I’m excited to see what this will bring. I’ve already been talking about it to a few of my coworkers and family. I never thought I’d be working in sales and look at me now.
I also decided to purchase the Rosewater Uplifting Spray. BEST PURCHASE THUS FAR!
Organic rose essence and purified water combine to nourish skin and create a dewy glow, leaving skin instantly refreshed. Perfect for a midday pick-me-up or when you’re on the go and even great for setting your makeup. Meanwhile, a few spritzes on your pillows impart a light rose aroma as you sleep.
