There is so much I adore about this world and so many reasons that I love travelling around it. Eating as many cuisines as possible – I mean, you knew that was going to be at the top of the list – learning and discovering new cultures, learning about yourself and making memories that absolutely no amount of money can buy… but the one thing that I truly love the most, the thing that gives me all of those “ahhh, I’m home, this is my happy place, I’ll just stay here then yeah?” vibes, is the Ocean.
There is something so chaotic but simultaneously calming about the Ocean, it’s the place that puts everything into perspective and helps me completely zone out and figure out where I need to be going in life (my answer to that neverending question is nearly always “to the fridge, then to the laptop with the Grey’s anatomy loaded”) but despite me being the Ocean’s very own biggest fangirl, I’ve never ever thought about the fact that just going about my day to day life I could be unintentionally causing a huge threat to it, and considering that today is World Ocean Day, I thought it would be the perfect time to start.
I had absolutely no bloomin’ idea that most of my “harmless” cosmetics products contained microbeads. You know those things that you’re like “oooh lovely, I’m totally going to be an exfoliated goddess after using this so move over Victoria Secret’s angels?” (no, is that just me then?) they’re actually tiny pieces of plastic that are causing such a threat to our planet’s ecosystems and wildlife, it’s even led to California banning microbeads in cosmetic products alongside the launch of a campaign that I feel so passionate about – which, in case you’re a bit confused by my slightly geeky science lesson, is actually what I’m talking to you about today – called #BeatTheMicrobead.
One brand that has always been, and will always be free of plastic microbeads is Trilogy, and I am so unbelievably happy about this as not only do I have the most amazing exfoliator – the gentle facial exfoliant, containing natural and biodegradable alternatives to those pesky little plastic things – to tell you about today, but I’ve also fangirled an embarrassing amount about the brand as a whole numerous times before (in particular about the Makeup be gone cleansing balm *insert heart eye’d emoji’s here*). So thank you Trilogy, not only for making the most babein products that makes my skin feel sassier than Beyonce, not only for providing products with natural ingredients that are kinder to our skin and our world, but also for helping to promote World Ocean Day as I for one definitely didn’t even know it existed. Now for my fangirl – don’t say I didn’t warn you – of the Trilogy gentle facial exfoliant.
