Most hype medias by Amy Arends (amyarends1)

New product release (totally dropped the ball on this one) I'd like to introduce you to your new best friend: Hand Savior Radiance Boosting Serum + Hand Sanitizer. I have started hand sanitizer with me literally everywhere I go - I have one in the car, I have one in my bag, I have one is Sadie's walking fanny pack (side note: sometimes Derek wears this and it makes me giggle 🤭) When Beautycounter announced that they were releasing a hand serum that also would fight off the germs - I added it to my cart instantly. I have been using this for several weeks and I am in love + my hands are happy to have some extra loving.

Helping one person might not change the whole world. But it could change the world for one person 🌍 Be kind. Help others.

It's not a mountain view, but Spring in Iowa is pretty gorgeous 🌳 {life gets a whole lot more enjoyable when you start embracing the moment}

High five or 5k ✋🏻 The last couple of months, each run has been miserable from start to finish. I would constantly be checking my time and distance just to figure out when I could be done. I honestly am not sure the last time I have felt good on a run. I felt in a groove and a pace I felt like I could run forever. #runnershigh first thing in the morning is an amazing feeling and one of my favorite ways to start the day 🌄

Fragrance: the new f-word. My husband loves documentaries. They are literally one of his favorite things to watch. I personally am not a huge fan & will typically find anything else to do so I don't have to watch them 🤣 But several years ago, he asked me if I would watch #stinkmovie with him, and because I love him and he asked so nicely I said of course. Eye opening & honestly terrifying to say the least. Some products on the shelves of our stores are not safe — by design. Did you know synthetic flavor or fragrance are engineered scent or flavoring agent that may contain any combination of 3,000-plus stock chemical ingredients, including hormone disruptors and allergens. Fragrance formulas are protected under federal law's classification of trade secrets and therefore can remain undisclosed. Go check your beauty products, cleaning supplies, and air fresheners. I bet you will be shocked by the number that contain "fragrance" as an ingredient. For your (& your family's) health — switch to safer products. If Beautycounter is the brand you would like to try, I'm here to help and make suggestions. But I really just want you to get safer products into your hands, take the time to learn what you are putting in and on your body.

//resistance bands// I've had them sitting in my closet for years, but I've never used them. But when the gyms closed and I started working out from home, I pulled them out. Swipe to see some of their benefits ➡️

My mission with Beautycounter has never been to encourage people to buy things they don't need or would never use. My mission is to help my friend+family swap out harmful products they are currently using for safer options. The 𝐅𝐑𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐃𝐒 + 𝐅𝐀𝐌𝐈𝐋𝐘 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐍𝐓 kicks off today. This is one of the best sales of the year & the perfect time to stock up or make the switch. ✨15% OFF* SITEWIDE✨ Want more? ✨20% OFF* SITEWIDE when you spend $250+✨ www.beautycounter.com/amyarends Beauty is in the Eye 👁️ of the Bolder
