Coming Clean: A Breast Cancer Survivor Discovers Clean Beauty She Can Trust

Hi!  I’m Rebecca.  October is very important to me because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I’m a Triple Negative Breast Cancer Survivor.  I just recently celebrated my 5 year anniversary of being cancer-free.  I get nervous saying that out loud (as much a want to scream it from the rooftops!).

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was 35 years old, living life with my husband and two sons (ages 7 and 3 at the time).  I was excited about just getting hired at my new job that I was about to start as a Speech/Language Pathologist when it all came to a grinding halt.

My life saving treatment included a double mastectomy, eight rounds of some of the toughest chemo therapy there is, and reconstruction.  Before cancer, I always tried to look and feel pretty.  But there just isn’t room for that when you’re fighting for your life.  Nothing is pretty about it.  Nothing.  How do you put mascara on your one little eyelash that is holding on for dear life?  How do you draw eyebrows when there are absolutely none there at all?  Do you wear a wig, a hat, or scarf on your bald head today?  And let’s not forget the main event: my chest.  What was that? These are the things you see on the outside, but what about the parts you can’t see, like what is going on inside your body and your mind? It was a completely life-altering time.

I’m so very lucky that I have the best family and friends who swooped in to do things I will never forget.  Their love literally held me up in the toughest battle of my life.  I’m not so sure I’d be here if it weren’t for every single one of them.

Right after my mastectomy and just as I was starting chemo, I found out about “Unite for HER,” a beautiful foundation with a beautiful founder (Sue Weldon) who knows what it’s like to fight the fight.  UFH provides complementary therapies (yoga, massage, clean eating and cooking, clean beauty, counseling, the list goes on and on) for those going through breast and ovarian cancer at no cost to the recipient.  I learned a lot about “good for you” nutrition and beauty—like the safe, clean makeup products from Inner Beauty Cosmetics — through UFH.  They educated me (and continue to do so) in keeping my life healthy.  They do such wonderful things and continue to have a little piece of my heart.

Because these two companies align in their shared vision for delivering safe cosmetics to all women— including those battling cancer and cancer survivors — Inner Beauty is donating a portion of their proceeds to Unite for HER this month.  How amazing is that?!

I’m very interested in clean beauty products. I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but let’s be honest, I’m 40 and I want to look and feel my best without compromising my health.

I didn’t win the fight of my life to put things in and on my body — including conventional beauty products — that cause cancer!

I heard about Inner Beauty Cosmetics from my friend and wanted to give it a try.  The Skin Tint Foundation and Skin Care Creamy Concealer work so nicely together to give me that easy, “no makeup” look that I’ve been looking for. They feel so good on my skin.  I feel like I’m glowing!  My favorite product is the Stay Calm® Lip Balm + Primer. I put this on first and then add the Shine Infusion™ Nourishing Lip Oil on top.  This gives my lips that healthy, natural look.

I’m so excited that I have found a brand that makes me look and feel pretty and that I know that is clean and safe for sensitive bodies like mine.  Thank you, Inner Beauty, for your great, safe makeup products and for your generosity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month!  You have made a difference in my life… in multiple ways.
