In my early career, I was lucky enough to be a Fashion + Beauty Editor. It was a dream job. I loved traveling to the shows and the gorgeous clothes, but one of the biggest perks was the free beauty swag I got almost daily.
We got everything: Skincare from every famous cosmetic house you can name. Cleansers, serums, eye creams, and oils. Oh, it was fun! But in the 90s "Green Beauty” wasn't really a thing yet, so almost everything we used had a chemical soup of ingredients I wouldn’t touch with a barge pole now!
To celebrate the launch of Heales Apothecary, we thought it would be fun to let you into my real-life bathroom to see the products I’m using now. This is all me. My no makeup, fifty-four-year-old face. No retouching, no filters (and yes, maybe the slightest hint of a fuzzy mustache) but whatever…COVID.
DISCLAIMER: You know those women who say, “I can get ready in five minutes?” Yeah, I’m not one of them. But I’m OK with that. I’ve gotten quicker over the years (especially in the morning). But I take my time with my evening beauty regimen. It feels like a little self-care ritual to me and helps me wind down.
