  • What should you look for when choosing skincare?
  • Why fancy cleansers are a WASTE of your money
  • Why some preservatives aren't necessarily bad


“Unfortunately, a lot of the products that are in big cosmetics are intended to create some sort of a temporary visual effect so that you think you're getting results, but in the long run, it's not doing you any good because they want you to keep buying products.” [5:26]

"It's not uncommon to see a preservative in a hydrosol. Not all preservatives are bad. It is a water. So, anytime you have a product with water, that means that the potential for microbial growth is there. So, I don't want people getting caught up in this notion that their skincare has to be preservative free, and then get something that hasn't been preserved properly. [29:31]
