Happy New Year! I realize it's been 2012 for over a week now, but I just got my internet back... again. (One of my biggest regrets of 2011 - signing up for Verizon. I've now switched companies.)
Last year I became more aware of the effects ingredients in my personal care/cosmetic collection could have on my health and more conscious of the choices I was making whenever I made a purchase. I ended up concentrating on on bath and body products, and now I am really happy with the products I use in the shower and on my face and body as part of my skin-care routine. I plan to continue to use these products in 2012. Most of them come from Rainwater Botanicals and Trader Joe's.
This year, I hope to take a closer look at the makeup I use. I made better-educated purchases of makeup last year, but not perfect ones. I am not a purist, and I feel comfortable using up the remainder of any products I have in my current collection. However, I hope to limit my makeup purchases in 2012 to only the cleanest items.
In fact, I hope to limit my purchases in general. I've amassed enough eye shadow to last me the next decade! I go through my skin-care products at a pretty decent rate, but I need to chill on the cosmetic buying.
I'm staying away from making any resolutions this year as they tend to fall by the way-side before February rolls around. What about you though? Do you have any goals for 2012?
