So my resolution for 2014 (I only made one, so as not to lose focus...and I because I'm a bit of a quitter) was to only purchase beauty products that are cruelty free. The first week was a breeze (as I did not need anything).
Then came the eighth of January. I was out of chapstick. I didn't have one on me at work, and by the end of the day my lips were chapped big time. I tried to drink lots of water and even spread some hand lotion over my lips. It did not help.
I was at the drugstore and looked around at the lip products. My eyes spied Maybelline's Baby Lips. I had tried it before and really liked it. I picked it up. I held it in my hand. Then I realized I couldn't purchase it. I fought with myself in the beauty aisle. I had the whole angel/devil shoulder dilemma going on. "Just get it...it's one little thing." said the one..."YOU will know...every time you put it on" said the other.
I put it back. I ended up with a Burt's Bee's product. I don't love it, it's only okay. My options were limited in this particular store at this particular time. It's okay though, because in the end I felt good about my choice, and I now have something to keep in my desk at work...so I won't have the same problem again any time soon.
Do you have any resolutions this year?? How are they going?
Good luck to you!
