i’ve been talking a lot lately about what goes in to my body but i’m starting to get more and more curious about what is in the products i’m putting on my body.
actually i started getting curious about 24 hours ago.
well actually like 12 hours ago.
whatever last night i went to an event hosted by jb and me (holland/grand rapids mi) about the farmhouse fresh beauty and skincare line.
i have been a long time user of their pumpkin mud mask because i liked the way in tingled my face and made it pink. plus it smells like pumpkin dessert. but i don’t eat. i didn’t say i didn’t try but no i do not eat it.
my friend and store manager laura was putting the event on and sent me an invite and i never miss a beauty night. i’m a product junkie (or as my friend barbalicious said last night, you are a sucker for everything). and it’s true. i am. add beauty products to my list.
so laurie and laura taught us about the nasty cancer causing garbage that we can find in many of the products that we know and use today. i am afraid to look up what’s in my lipstick. i bet i eat like 4 sticks of lipstick a year and that’s no joke. nars, please tell me your lipstick is crap free!
here is what freaked me out. do you know that the lotions and serums you put on your skin have the capability to contribute to certain forms of cancer. wtf. i hate cancer. and the more people i know who get cancer. i Fing hate it even more. i’m not about to be knowingly putting stuff on my body that has been proven to cause cancer.
enter farmhouse fresh. like i said before i bought the mask before because i liked the way it smelled and felt but it’s truly truly a great product. all of their products are made of 99.6% natural ingredients. most important, the products are sulfate and paraben free and everything is made right in the USA in texas.
the more we learned about the parabens and sulfates in product the more i was like… crap. i could feel the wrinkles and crows growing on my face and i felt this overwhelming sense of ick. you know when someone describes symptoms of a disease or condition and you sit there and think ” aw shit i have that! ” ” yea i smell burnt toast and taste pennies”. that is what it felt like. and honestly i’m too scared to go home and potentially give up some of my favorite products.. but it might have to be done.
i’m sorry i keep going off on tangents. we got to experience the full facial line as well as the scrubs, oils and creams. here is a list of everything we sampled:
- sand your ground mask and scrub
- wine down recovery serum
- three milk ageless moisturizer
- honey lavender salt scrub
- agave nectar body oil
- honey heel glaze
- woopie cream
the products were amazing. i have a small but bendable rule. i can’t buy a new product until the old one is out. i think once my face wash and moisturizer are done i’m making the switch. i limited myself to two products although i am definitely going back for the honey heel glaze next week. it was amazing. and it literally smells like honey.
i took home the honey lavender salt scrub – smell intensely fresh and amazing and leaves your skin feeling like it’s a newborn babies bottom. i also grabbed the agave nectar oil. i have been reading a lot about the benefits of oils for your skin (not the aromatic ones that are all the rage right now). it leaves your skin smooth and kind of captures that softness that the scrub leaves with you.
other than the fact these products are all natural and garbage free the price point is super affordable. all the products are under $30 for the large container. (the large jar of oil was only $18) for a long lasting all natural product that is a steal people. almost their entire line can be found locally at jbandme or online at farmhousefreshgoods.com
curious – has anyone else been doing any research about parabens and sulfites in their skin care/ make up lines? i’d love for you to share your findings!
