What does "Clean at Sephora' mean exactly? What ingredients are in our skincare? What do they do? Why are these ingredients bad for my skin?
Lately I've been more conscience about what products I'm putting on my face - especially for skincare. I'm not one to read the ingredients because 99% of them I have no idea what they are. It gets confusing because I thought all alcohol in skincare was bad but apparently some are good and same goes for acids.
So now Sephora has come up with a way to make it easy for us to know what we are putting on our face.
With the 'CLEAN AT SEPHORA' Stamp it makes it so much easier for me to choose what skincare item to try next.
At first I had no idea what this sticker meant - "it says clean at Sephora - it must be good right?!". But it wasn't until recently that I did some further digging into the meaning of this stamp of approval.
WOW nasty right?!
Let that soak in... all these ingredients have been added to cosmetics for years and only NOW are we are rewarding companies for not including them. It seems crazy that this didn't happen sooner. But what about those products that don't have the stamp??? All I know is that I am very happy that Sephora is now making the consumer more aware at the ingredients by making it as simple as a green sticker.
Okay now that we got all that nasty stuff out of the way and learnt something about what NOT to put on our faces, here are a list of my all time fave skincare products from the 'CLEAN AT SEPHORA' section.
