5 Reasons Why Subscription Boxes Are a Must Have if You're Converting to Green Beauty
Becoming educated on how toxic most of our conventional beauty products are, I decided to embark on this natural, nontoxic journey with more than just my food. Health and wellness were already a big part of my lifestyle, being a Pure Barre instructor and yoga teacher. I realized that if I was being conscious of what I was putting into my body and how I moved my body daily, then why wasn't I more concerned with what I was putting onto my body too? Skin is our largest and most complex organ! Absorption rates on our face and scalp are 5-10 times higher than on other parts of the body (think of how many products we apply to our face and scalp daily, yikes). It seemed like the natural next step for me to take, but I had no clue were to start. When converting, it can be super expensive and overwhelming. There are a ton of brands in both conventional and clean beauty spaces that claim to be natural and nontoxic, but in fact contain ingredients that are linked to cancer and hormone disruptors. Never being into subscription boxes before, I was surprised to find myself so interested in them after switching to clean beauty. I have been subscribed to two different boxes for over a year now, subscribing to my first box back in June of 2016. If you are looking to slowly start swapping out your conventional products for cleaner, healthier alternatives then consider these 5 reasons why a subscription box (or two) might be the way to go!
2. Cost Effective
As mentioned before, it can be extremely expensive when converting all of your products over to natural beauty. By subscribing to a green beauty box, it gives you the opportunity to purchase products for about half the price, and who doesn't love saving money? This idea is such a cool and helpful tool to get the most bang out of your buck so you can really have the freedom to try more brands/products. Inevitably, giving you winning products to swap your toxic ones out for! Typically, the value of a subscription box is twice as much (if not more) that what you actually pay for the box.
If you are just beginning, or have been on the green beauty journey for a while, subscription boxes are always a good and helpful idea. Your wallet will thank you, and I promise you won't be disappointed with the curation of the boxes. As mentioned previously, stay tuned for a future post reviewing the two boxes I subscribe to and love!
