Do you really want beauty advice from someone who looks like a hot mess most of the time?
Yes, you do. And here’s why.
Working with some of the best green beauty products and retailers I have pretty much tried it all. And I am honest about what is amazing, what is just OK, and what my clients should just toss!
And while I may not glam it up for a walk to Whole Foods, one thing I can boast is great skin. And it’s not just genes. I rely on natural beauty products that kick the butts of their conventional counterparts. And nothing is too “crunchy” either. In the words of Absolutely Fabulous’ Edina Monsoon, “It takes more than a cold flannel and some Body Shop oatmeal scrub for me, you know. And I can’t meet clients smelling like an old bowl of porridge, can I, sweetie?”
No need for long explanations, as the Web sites will fill you in on the details and full disclosure of ingredients (especially relevant with all the greenwashing going on by big beauty companies!) If they are listed here, it means they are 100% Paige-tested-and-approved!
