“Good looks, good looks and good looks!” As much as we love Poo, we can’t allow her words to influence our purchasing decisions. Consumers of today value what’s in a product rather than how good it looks on the outside. More than focusing on pretty packaging, beauty brands need to be transparent and honest with us about the ingredients they put into their products. No more are we willing to settle for beauty products that have chemicals, artificial colouring, fragrances and preservatives in them. It’s time to choose cleaner and safer beauty ingredients for our skin. Say hello to MyGlamm Clean Beauty!
MyGlamm just dropped a limited edition Clean Beauty line to celebrate the strengthening of their commitment to clean beauty. Therefore, all the makeup products from the MyGlamm Clean Beauty line are vegan, cruelty-free and PETA-approved. In fact, they’re so pure even Grazia hearts them! However, the feature that takes the cake is the fact that this limited-edition line is free from nasty ingredients. Yes, divas, the MyGlamm Clean Beauty line is carefully crafted from natural ingredients and designed with a toxic-free formulation.
After all, ain’t nobody got time for ‘em nasties!
