UPDATE: My 2017 list is here!
Just last year, I became more aware of the types of ingredients that go into beauty products and started to read product labels.I was so shocked that almost all the drugstore products contained many harmful ingredients.
Ever since that happened, I threw away quite a fair bit of skincare and beauty products that contain harmful ingredients. It really wasn’t easy, to see all my $$$ thrown into the bin. But I can say that I do not regret it at all, my skin has improved tremendously since then.
Since then, I’ve repurchased only clean products and by clean I mean products that are free of parabens, phenoxyethanol, mineral oils, alcohol, silicones (really hard to avoid in moisturisers), sulfates, and etc.
