Let’s Talk Charcoal

I am the first to admit that I love jumping on the trendy train (please see the 90’s nostalgia that is my wardrobe right now).  Chances are, you’ve seen the charcoal hype here and there.  Whether it be Youtube videos of people painfully peeling off their charcoal masks/top layer of their skin or those facebook advertisements for charcoal toothpaste showing a girl grinning through black suds, you’ve totally seen it.  My favorite product I’ve found is the Beautycounter Charcoal Bar!

Here’s why:

  1. I love Beautycounter.  I will be singing praises of this skincare/beauty line for posts to come.  Beautycounter bans over 1500 ingredients from their products meaning they are safe on your skin.  No sulfates, parabens, fragrance or anything that could be hazardous to your health.
  2. I could absolutely tell a difference with the appearance of my skin. My face felt clean without that dried out I-can’t-lift-my-eyebrows feeling.  My blackheads on my nose definitely got better over the first month of using, as well.
  3. The ingredients include organic green tea and coconut oil. Who wouldn’t want to have that on their face?
  4. I’ve been using my Charcoal Bar for over three months now and still have more than half of the bar left.
  5. The bar super cool looking.

Welcome to Balanced Life of a Happy Wife

One time, a boy name Brian made a girl named Abbie baked brie with raspberry preserves on top. Even though she was really trying to monitor her cheese intake, she gladly gobbled away and knew that Brian was more than just a pretty face and good cook.

Flash forward almost 2 years later.

They are still eating cheese (in **some** moderation) and planning their wedding.

Wedding planning and life in general can be a whirlwind at times.  It is often difficult to find balance between making healthy choices and life getting ahead of you.  Follow Balanced Life of a Happy Wife while I make wholesome and delicious recipes in the kitchen, clean up my beauty and skin routine, and share my fashion favorites, all while wedding planning, dog parenting, and being the best me I can be.
