Why Use Natural Skin Care? Because.

March 2, 2011By 8 Comments

I was watching Extreme Couponing on TV the other night, and I saw some lady stock up on like 80 kazillian bunzillion bars of name brand soap and icky, icky, cheap, synthetic-y, conventional lotions. I couldn’t believe she was committing to a lifetime of gunky, toxic “beauty” products in such massive quantities. It was gross. Seriously, I wanted to gag myself with a dull, rusty, crusty spoon.

To quell my heart palpitations, I took a break to pamper myself with some wholesome, natural, vegan & cruelty-free beauty goodies. My arsenal of beauty products is a little out of control, and for this reason, I like to switch up my products often (sometimes weekly).

Over the past couple weeks I have been seriously digging this company called Because. I love the name, love their quality goods, and love the way the make me feel (luxuriously awesome). 😉 My faves:

Moisture-Retaining Hand and Body Scrub ($36): Even though I know I need to cut down my sugar intake (apparently, having 5 cupcakes for breakfast is not normal), I will never shun a good sugar scrub—evah! I’m an exfoliatin’ diva; I rock hand scrubs almost every other day, and I attribute a nice chunk of my serene happiness to this simple pamperin’ pleasure. I must say, of all the hand scrubs I’ve ever tried, this one is definitely the creamiest. It also smells soooo pretty; it has a sweet, subtle fruity scent that reminds me of something from my childhood (but I can’t put my finger on it). It contains raw cane sugar and berry seed oils rich in essential Omega fatty acids—perfect for healing dry, flaky dragon skin.

This dopeness gets even better when you couple it with Because’s Multi-Tasking Hand and Body Lotion ($44)—shazaaam, you’ve got baby booty soft skin! It’s packed with essential nutrients, skin plumping oils and powerful free radical resistance fighters. It’s hydrating, light, and has a subtle floral scent that’s pleasing and calming.

I will say that these products may be a lil’ steep for the average compassionate beauty junkie, but hey, if you’re gonna splurge—do it right!

What’s your favorite hand and body scrub?

    $44 for 5.1 oz. of hand cream isn’t a “splurge.” It’s for people with lots of money and not much sense.

    I just saw a vid on extreme couponing too (boston.com)! I’m all for a good deal, but most coupons seem to be for canned meat and other gross processed crud 🙁

    And seriously, who needs to have a 20 yr supply of toothpaste, even if it’s free?

    In the first video, I like how the person in line behind the couponer gives up on waiting 😛 Poor checkout peeps.
