For me, becoming more and more eco conscious and friendly, and reducing my waste allowed me to also become much more of a minimalist.

A lot of people want to switch out their cosmetic products or products in general, but don't really know what to switch them out for, or are too hesitant to make the switch due to thinking that these commercial products that they use are far superior to any other products, and more so compared to more natural products.

Do the math and you will see just how...
