So, you’ve decided to improve your health and wellness and make the switch to clean beauty and skincare. We are so glad! But, we also know you may already feel overwhelmed, wondering where to even begin. A total overhaul all at once can be daunting on many levels. We totally get it. Don’t lose heart: we truly believe that it's the small, simple changes we make again and again that create a lasting difference. So, join us on our guided, Positive Product Swap journey. The goal is to make one swap a month, and by the end of a year, you'll be amazed at what you’ve created on your clean beauty journey.
positive product swap no. 1: mascara
Making the switch to a clean mascara is one of the first swaps we recommend because the lash area around the eyes is highly absorbent, making it an easy target for potentially harmful ingredients. Mascara can also flake and make its way into your eyes or onto other parts of your face and be a source of irritation, especially for those with sensitive skin.
Most of us have different needs when it comes to mascara. Some of us want to lengthen lashes, some want to add definition, while others really need a mascara that is waterproof. Luckily, we have mascaras that check each one of these boxes. Browse our recommendations for mascaras that are safe, effective, and sure to tackle your eyelash goals.
