What’s So Great About Naturopathica?

Why Naturopathica?
In a booming beauty industry we are bombarded with the latest and greatest things, promised great results all bundled up with a hefty price tag (complete with a wing and a prayer). We try these products because who wants to be the only one in the circle with crows feet and a Nana neck!? Eventually we are let down by the hype finding it left our faces inflamed and irritated (and our wallets deflated)!
I have been an Esthetician for 10 years and grew up in and around the beauty industry (my mom was my first beauty consultant). I have used A LOT of products. I like to stay in front of what is “in” and keep up with the “latest”. There are very few things I will put on my skin routinely. I have always preferred “natural/organic” products. There are definitely some good ones out there but, my skin SINGS HALLELUJAH when Naturopathica is applied.
I am prone to breakouts since the birth of my daughter, they weren’t lying when they told me she would steal my beauty (and she is really darn cute so I see where it’s going…but seriously).  I started using Naturopathica and noticed a visible change in my skin within days. Redness and irritation are no more! I love makeup and used to not be able to leave the house without being doused heavily in powder. These days if I’m in a pinch I’ll throw on some mascara and roll out. It is really life changing and the more I use and get to know the products the more I love Naturopathica!
I could ramble on all day with success stories about myself, my clients and friends with these products but I am going to list some fun facts straight from Naturopathica. There is so much awesome information about these products! If you care about what you are putting on your skin and into your body read on and immerse yourself in the knowledge of Naturopathica!
