Powerful Beauty with Byrna Tracy

Achieve Powerful Beauty with Bionic Beauty™

If you remember way back when, I reviewed Luv4Country soaps (I love luv4country!). Anyhow, Bryna Tracy (the owner and founder) of Luv4Country has kindly agreed to be a spotlight contributor for Bionic’s Powerful Beauty series.

Saving our planet by way of using eco-friendly beauty products has always intrigued me. When I read labels on mass-produced products, I am always amazed at the chemically enhanced ingredients that have no place in our waterways and soil. When I purchase for myself and my family I am consciously aware of reading the ingredient labels to ensure that it is safe for myself and my environment. I feel this makes me more powerful in our ever changing world.

Byrna’s response is so unique in this series. I love how she turned the beauty statement outward. Due to my sensitive skin and my quest for more and more knowledge about skincare ingredients, I’ve always been a label reader. But as a beauty blogger, I’ve become even more obsessive since now I feel a duty to my readers. I’m also trying to live greener, bit by bit and reading labels like Byrna says is a great way to inform yourself. Plus you can learn which companies to support due to their green and eco-friendly practices.

Do you read labels when purchasing skincare and cosmetics? Or base it solely on reviews, packaging, or other criteria?

Catch up on the rest of the Powerful Beauty features. And remember to check back each Friday for another dose of how to Achieve Powerful Beauty!

I am definitely a full-on label reading, for everything I buy (including food). I like to know what I’m putting on and in my body – even if I don’t always make the greenest decisions.

BTW, stop by for HUGE LOVE for BB on my site today!

I’m a total label reader, especially when doing reviews. I have pretty tough skin, but I know so many people who have sensitivities(some are extreme) that it’s become second nature to look for specific things before buying. I’m finding that well made products don’t usually need all that extra crap anyways!

You both know I’m a label reader. When you’re darn face is allergic to half of the most common skincare ingredients, you learn to read very carefully. Okay, maybe half is exaggerating. But I’m allergic to glycerin & its byproducts, any sort of citrus or citrus oil, and all forms of parabens. Thankfully my body isn’t as picky. Sheesh. How did I get so lucky???
