There are a lot of products on the market these days claiming to be greener and safer to use around you home.

Honest Review of Beautycounter: Nourishing Line

If you are reading this you are probably looking to do an overhaul on your skin and body care products. You know that there are tons of chemicals in many of our everyday beauty products and you want to start to eliminate your exposure to these unnecessary toxins.

Over the past few years I have been trying to switch over to healthier, non toxic products in our home. This goes from our cleaning supplies to my makeup. I found I was a bit more on top of this when I first had my babies. Wanting everything to be as non-toxic as possible and spending more than we could really afford on household cleaning products that were green, but safer.
