Today I want to talk about knowing what’s in your in skincare products and if you’re aware of it.
Let’s relate this to something familiar such as medications.. we all are aware that each medication usually comes with some crazy side effects- some worse than others.
Many skincare and beauty products have side effects as well. You can pull this list off the internet to find out the bad stuff that even some organic products contain.. the list is loooong.
In the above picture I have the company that claims to be the #1 skincare in America? Im not gonna lie, I’ll be straight up with you. I use to use some of these products.. my poor kids did too, worse yet I was also a consultant for them at one point. I can tell you from my point of view that it isn’t what it’s all hyped up to be. In fact I had used it prior while I was breastfeeding (I know you’re thinking what does that have to do with anything) until a friend of mine contacted me on Instagram and told me to read about it, breastfeeding mothers should not use their products?! Of course I stopped ASAP.
When I became a consultant I had been on my working website one day and noticed under the product description the craziest thing (I’ll post picture) and from that point on decided to steer clear.
I wondered to myself if anyone else even noticed this??? I’m not sure how many more of their products contain carcinogens, but I was done!! I educated all my friends and family on this as well.
Now here’s what drove me crazy! When I called in to tell them I no longer wanted to be a consultant for their company. I was asked why of course.. I told them the business wasn’t for me and that I can’t feel good about myself selling these products to people because of the ingredients. I guess they marked me as a target. Lol
I was told I have to fill out this form and send it by MAIL which will take 7-10 days to process. Funny thing when I read the form it gave me the option to fax or email it back and the process would be less than half the time if i were to send it. (Meanwhile I’ll be charged again for my monthly website fee) So, of course I scanned it and emailed it in. Three days later I get an email from them stating I haven’t completed my termination process?? Say what?! I told them I sent it in. I argued back and forth with this person (meanwhile it’s getting closer to another monthly fee) I sent it two more times and “CC’d” myself in the process. Finally, he claims he received it and I’m finally done with them!
A couple of weeks later I receive an email that now I’m not in compliance because of an old ad I had posted on Facebook while I was still a consultant. Supposedly I was breaking regulations and policy. Replied back with one of the prompts they offer “thank you for the information.” Several days later.. another harassing email from them asking me to confirm I have taken down all post. Seriously?? I took down whatever I could find. Replied back with how ridiculous this whole thing is becoming. Smh!!
I guess I should’ve done more homework on this company. Product ingredients aren’t safe and if you look them up on BBB the amount of complaints and negative reviews are crazy. Of course in their own defense they’ll say that’s only a percentage of their customers. Hey! You know what it doesn’t matter, we are human beings with only one skin to live in and you’re taking our money.
Moral of story: please be aware of the dangerous ingredients that are in your products you use and do your homework before joining a pyramid company.
I strictly use Korean products now and love the results I am getting.
