I have to do housework. Yes. I. Do. Much as I like to indulge in beauty and blogging, my real life offline involves getting my hands dirty at times and handling laundry detergent, dish washing liquid and bathroom cleaner. I don’t really give a lot of thoughts to these items because most of the time, I’ve got my gloves on when I’m doing my housework. Using products that are green and made with naturally derived, biodegradable ingredients aren’t on my radar; the idea is nice but I’m not so certain if they’re equally nice on my pockets too. So when I was introduced to Method, a range of environmentally-conscious household and personal care products, my first question was “are they expensive?”
Do you wear any lip products? For some, lip products are a must either for beautifying or medical reasons. It can be a lip balm to soothe your cracked lips, or a pretty lip gloss/lipstick to freshen and brighten up your look. But because this particular cosmetic is applied on such a delicate area, where the skin is most permeable and there’s a high tendency to ingest whatever is applied on it, do you think it should be made 100% safe for consumption, just like food?
I’ll admit upfront that I know very little about dental care but I’ve been toying with the idea of switching to a herbal toothpaste recently. The only thing that is holding me back is, there aren’t that many herbal toothpastes available on the store shelves here, and this is not an item I feel compelled to incur shipping cost for. But perhaps more importantly, I wonder if it’s all that wise to switch to one that is fluoride free.
I’ve been reading quite a number of reports of how some people got their eyes stung after using certain facial cleansers and I really had no idea what that meant until recently. You see, two of the cleansers that I’ve been asked to try had stung my eyes. These are products in the natural category, said to contain certified organic ingredients, and I was rather surprised they caused irritations to my eyes. I don’t have sensitive eyes and I don’t recall any facial cleansers, even those in the non-natural category, stinging my eyes like these two.
