3 tips for making the switch to clean beauty

Making the switch to non-toxic products can seem like a daunting task. You could be left wondering which products to switch over first or how much of an investment you should be prepared to make. These concerns can often prevent people from even making the switch at all! Here at three simple tips for detoxing your products and making the switch as painless as possible!

  1. Don’t try to switch everything at once! Here at Shimmer, we offer a range of products from cosmetics to personal and home care items. We offer a range of price points and collections but this can sometimes be overwhelming for someone just started out on their non-toxic journey! Start off by making a list of the products you use most often and focus just on those!

  2. Replace your products as you run out. Instead of stocking up on all new everything, switch brands as you would normally buy replacements.

  3. Be open to trying a few new products before finding your forever replacement. One of the most common products that people find difficult to switch brands is deodorant. When switching to a clean deodorant, your body will need some time to adjust. Don’t give up! Just like you probably tried a few drugstore brand mascaras before you found one you love, you might end up trying a few clean brands.

Stop by Shimmer and we’ll give you a tour of the store and a quick overview of our products to help you make smart buying decisions! Testers are available for the majority of our products, so you’re welcome to take them for a spin before committing. Store hours are Tuesday and Wednesday 10-5, Thursday 10-6, Friday and Saturday 10-5 and Sunday 12-4.
