I have always lacked in the self-esteem department but during my younger years, it was the worst. I was always depressed, sometimes suicidal, and rarely wanted to leave the house. It was a sad life, especially when I went shopping. The beauty standards set in place by major corporations and the media then, and even now, made me feel even worse about myself. They definitely don’t make you feel like You Are Amazing.
I have made a lot of improvements on my self-perception, but there are still many standards we try to live up to. We want to be prettier, thinner, taller, have better skin, hair, nails.
You Are Amazing
What we really need is someone to tell us we are amazing just the way we are. And that’s where the company You Are Amazing comes in. You Are Amazing is a purpose-led brand with a mission to empower girls and women to be strong and confident. For every purchase, they donate to the Girl Up Foundation, a UN foundation to develop, engage, and inspire the world to stand up for the empowerment of girls everywhere.
I received these products for review purposes.
You Are Amazing offers affordable ($1.99 to $9.99) beauty products that are Paraben and Phthalate free and never tested on animals. The products are made in the USA and focus on fragrance.
Now, you’d expect anything this cheap to lack in the smell department, or at the very least fade quickly. That’s just not the case here. Each of the product I tried left an amazing scent all day long. The lotions are creamy and leave my skin soft and smooth and the fragrance is noticeable throughout the day.
The Mango Papaya body spray is my favorite, the scent is intoxicatingly good and makes you feel like you’re on a tropical island. I do not leave the house without a spritz or three.
The body wash lathers up great and rinses away clean while leaving a subtle hint of fragrance on your skin. I have super sensitive skin and this didn’t cause any problems which is a big deal for me. It actually did a great job of hydrating my skin.
