Thank you, CVS for sponsoring this post on Vida Noel
Hey, Loves! Wow, it has been a minute since I have been able to hop on here and get a good post up! Mommy life of two is insane, but lets chat more about that later! Today I am so thrilled to be partnering up with CVS to talk to you all about my journey to clean beauty. Growing up I was FASCINATED by watching my mom get ready for the day. She always did her hair first, makeup second, and her outfit of the day last. I remember how I would sit there and stare at her perfecting her infamous cat eye which I to this day do because of her (sorry, Ariana Grande). Even with her flawless makeup routine, nothing fascinated me more than her skincare routine. My mama drilled into my brain from a young age that your skin is the most important thing to take care of next to your body as a whole. Your skin is with you forever!
One of the BIG rules my mama taught me is always, ALWAYS take your makeup off at night. Her line was “if you do not take your makeup off at night you will age a year”. Obviously that line is a stretch but definitely not too far off! She taught me how to care for my skin and to start young. I owe her everything for being the one to help me age flawlessly!
Now that I am a mother (of TWO!) myself, I can definitely see how life can age the skin. Becoming a mother has definitely added a few fine lines to this face but has also made me realize not every product out there is “good” for me. I started getting into clean beauty (and being clean in general) about a year or so ago. After learning what kind of chemicals and toxins are being put into our everyday products it shocked me to do better. I needed to do better not only for me but for my family. It is unfortunate we need to keep a close eye on what is being sold to us but I am thankful for places like CVS that are helping consumers buy clean beauty products.
Here are some of the many clean beauty products you can find at your local CVS! The green clean beauty sticker on all of the products helps you identify which ones are clean, I love that!
Beauty 360 is one of my favorite brands that can be found at CVS. I use the mask once a week to really clean and purify my face. I have a really oily “T-Zone” so I love to use the pore strips twice a week to really clean my pores. It always amazes how much gunk is stuck in my face even after how much I clean and wash it!
When it comes to a healthy and clean beauty routine, all it takes is one step forward in the right direction! Anytime your current products run out that aren’t “clean”, replace them with products that are.
Here is a list of the products shown:
There is nothing more satisfying than feeling confident in the skin you’re in! I cannot stress enough how important it is to start caring for you skin and investing in it. Clean beauty does not have to put a hole in your wallet which is why I am so thankful to CVS for helping the everyday woman care for her skin.
Be sure to watch for the “green sticker” the next time you are in your local CVS store! You can also shop on cvs.com.
