As some of you know already, I’m an Educator for Beautycounter. If you’re like me, I never really thought about harmful ingredients in products before. To be honest, it didn’t even phase me. I assumed everything was safe. It had to be since it’s allowed to be put on our bodies…right?! Then I found out how there’s really not much of any regulation here in the U.S….. ingredients linked to health issues, infertility, and hormone disruption allowed in products! That’s just crazy! After I knew better, I wanted to do better. Not only looking for skincare, makeup, kids products, or bath products with safer ingredients but also switching other products my family is exposed to. It’s a slow process but it’s a great feeling taking steps in the right direction. A little bit at a time. It’s about PROGRESS, not perfection.
As I switch products over, I want to share them with you all! As an Educator for Beautycounter, our mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. That means not only Beautycounter products! One product I’m swapping is nail polish. Not only for myself but Mariah as well. She sure LOVES getting her nails painted. I was exposed to côte from Beautycounter and boy am I in LOVE! Beautycounter actually partnered with côte during Valentine’s Day and had a côte nail polish available with a lip gloss. It was such a fun duo!
Check out the côte website HERE. All of côte’s polishes are created free of the major toxins and allergens that are often associated with nail polish: formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), toluene, camphor, formaldehyde resin, TPHP, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens and gluten. All are made cruelty free with the highest quality vegan products to produce the safest toxin-free nail polish available! When you’re getting pampered, you shouldn’t have to worry…right?! Totally makes sense! Especially, how many times Mariah wants me to pain her finger and toenails!
These colors below are their best sellers…
They have so many other amazing colors though. 116 to be exact. 🙂
Here’s one that I received from when I attended Beautycounter’s incentive trip. I love that Beautycounter gifts us with amazing products like this! Love the packaging… so much info in a little package!
I wish all companies can provide us cleaner safer beauty!
I love the color!! It went on so smoothly.
Mariah was sure excited to test out this new nail polish! This girl even wanted to “model”….haha!
I recently ended up grabbing these 2 colors below, and I can’t wait to try it out!! So pretty right?! Once the Protective Base & Top polish is available, I’m going to grab that one so it lasts even longer. Right now it’s out of stock. 🙁
I encourage you all to make a switch as well! We need to support companies like this who are creating products that have our health in mind but making sure the quality is top notch. I even plan on taking this to my nail salon when I go and bring my own lotion too. 😉 Remember, it’s about progress…trying to do better. Not trying to be perfect!
**Starting this month, any size order placed will be in a monthly drawing to win a goodie bag which includes 3 products (Beautycounter or non Beautycounter products) that has our health and environment in mind. You guessed it… a côte nail polish will be included in this month’s giveaway. YEAH!!
