Why I joined the clean beauty movement during uncertain times:
1.) The Discount!!!!! As a professional makeup artist of over 20+ years, I RARELY pay full price for makeup. Most companies offer a PRO discount to artists with credentials and so I’ve received deep discounts on luxury brands since 2003. Notice I mention luxury brands, I’m a makeup and skin care snob and wouldn’t join a company that didn’t deliver real results, all while assuring my health and safety. Win!
2.) It was FREE to join!!!! Not only was the usual Consultant Fee of $98 waived, I also received a darling canvas tote bag, my FAVORITE product the Overnight Resurfacing Peel (full sized worth $69), and also a full sized lipstick “9 to 5” in a natural shade! To me this was a no brainer and no better time to partner with this movement. The $98 Consult Fee is waived until April 30th, get IN!!!!!!!
3.) Calculated Risk!!! If you look at huge brands, many were started by risk takers who went against the odds: Henry Ford, Elon Musk (Tesla), Sarah Blakely (Spanx), Gregg Renfew (Beautycounter), to name a few, and while I’m not starting my very own company, I’m taking a risk in that my husband and I are BOTH unemployed with no jobs on the horizon. Money is TIGHT to say the least! Because the Consult Fee is waived I felt peace about taking a calculated risk spending money in uncertain times on products I already loved, needed to replenish, and trusted implicitly.
4.) Tutorial Requests. In the past 5 weeks of this quarantine 2020, I’ve had several people each week reach out and either ask for specific tutorials OR encourage me to do them to help others since we’re all home, bored, stir crazy, and a growing weary of the no-makeup-dirty-hair-yoga-pant look! This way instead of sending people to several different places to find/order products, I can streamline my product suggestions while earning income for my family.
5.) One Stop Shop!!!! This might be the most important reason so I felt it important to end on. I am SO sick and tired of wasting time, energy, and money on clean beauty products that are inferior to my tried-and-true luxury brands. I’m tired of investigating labels and ingredients or searching for safe products on EWG’s Skin Deep Database only to find that they can’t possibly keep up with the thousands of products on the market with more being added each day. I originally joined Beautycounter back in 2015 when I learned of all the toxic ingredients that the FDA allowed in our beauty and personal care products. I was shocked! Ever since, I’ve always had Beautycounter products in my regimen here and there but because I used so many other companies, I was certainly piece mailing and just grew tired of it. Companies create their products to all work beautifully together. When you use a serum from one company and a moisturizer from another you just won’t achieve the same results as when you stick to one company/one regime. I already know and trust Beautycounter and wanted to use their products from head to toe: bath/body, hair, SPF, Men, skin care, and makeup. One-Stop-Shop!!!!!
I will be adding some natural makeup tutorials here on my blog so stay tuned. I’m here for any questions and will even link my website for your convenience. http://beautycounter.com/michellespieler
