I am sad to announce that I have thrown in the towel--the chemical life is for me! I just couldn't control my want for luxurious beauty items that concealed wonderfully, prevented future wrinkles, and made my eyes so freaking sultry. I honestly thought I could make-do with the natural products I had found and started using. I wasn't completely pure--every once in awhile, my old bottle of Pantene hiding in the corner of my shower would lure me with its yummy scent. Some days, I just couldn't take my hair smelling of flower child.
I think, though, that the final straw was when I started using a Neutrogena "natural" moisturizer. When I saw it in the store, I trusted it, as Neutrogena is "dermatologist approved" and all. Let me tell you, over the last month or so, I have broken out more than I have in the last 2 years and my skin was all kinds of uneven. So today, I chucked what was last of the fail-ogena and happily bought my old, trusted Oil of Olay moisturizer. I also bought a lot of un-natural loot while I was at it, but that's another post for another time.
(Me, with the failed product...sad face.)
