Why Beautycounter?

I want to start this post with a little history of me. If you're new to my blog then you don't know  much about me and my journey.

Back in September 2014, we got pregnant and were over the moon. At our 8 week ultrasound, there was no heartbeat and we were devastated. A couple weeks later, I went to a different doctor for a second opinion and they thought it was a blighted ovum. Then a week after that, I went back for another ultrasound and they found that I was experiencing a Complete Molar Pregnancy {you can read up on that here}. I was scheduled for an emergency D&C the next day and we were able to start our 6 month wait of being able to try again.

I went into a depression after all of that and found solace with a group of ladies experiencing my same heartache in a support group on Babycenter. If you are experiencing a Molar Pregnancy, please consider going to the Molar Pregnancy group, because it truly helped me get through my depression. On there, I met someone who I instantly connected with. We have so much in common, our stories align so very closely. She started to sell Beautycounter because of her experience and brought me on board.

I've had a rough go through this whole trying to conceive journey, but ultimately I have two healthy, beautiful girls to show for it. Now that we have our girls, I want to make sure that I'm as healthy as I can be so that I can stick around to see them grow and flourish. I started to think about all of the unhealthy things we use on a daily basis. That includes our makeup and skincare {or if you're like me, you just didn't use any skincare}. My friend inspired me to look deeper into what I was using and consuming and I came to the conclusion to make the switch to safer.

It took me a good 2 years of contemplation before I finally made the switch. I haven't looked back since. I'm not selling it to make money or preach to everyone about their skincare choices. I'm just trying to spread awareness and help if you want the help. I just want to put safer skincare options out there and hope that people catch on. I know that my kids need a healthy mommy so that's what I'm trying to provide them!

This is using Dew Skin and a little bit of blush. My skin feels and looks so much healthier now! 

Until next time!
