I pulled the Hanged Man tonight, a card about sacrifice and letting go. While this tarot deck always seems to know what's going on in my life (spookily so), I also wanted to reflect on what this means to me in regards to my philosophy with skincare. One pet peeve I have about luxury Eco Beauty, (and there are quite a few as you may know!), is how PRECIOUS it has all become. Like these products are collectors items, keepsakes, heirlooms. Now there's nothing wrong with pretty packaging! I adore beautiful design and gorgeous branding. But natural skin care is meant to be somewhat ephemeral and transient... touched, melted, slathered, smelled, rubbed, spritzed... USED before it goes bad!! These plant based ingredients want to be loved before they fizzle out! But when something is enshrined like King Tut, with layers of gold, in a complex pyramid of heavy guage card stock, it's hard to really dig in there and actually use the stuff as it is meant to be. How can you truly get to the soul of a product and experience it with reckless abandon when it feels like a sacrifice to hit the bottom of the pot? And if the product isn't for you... how much harder is it to let go? This doesn't seem to me to be the heart and soul of green beauty. To me, the true value and the true beauty is in the juice... use it up! And let it go! Life is short!
I don't know, maybe this parallel is a stretch. 🤷🏽♀️🌌 .
