There are few things more terrifying than investigating the ingredients of your go-to cosmetic only to find out exactly how damaging they can be. Thankfully Beauty Lies Truth, an educative and activist beauty blog started by Sleigh Bells' Alexis Krauss and pal Jessica Assaf, has stepped in and is shedding the light on alternatives to chemically-loaded drug store buys. But revamping your beauty bag can be a time-consuming and expensive process, right?
Maybe not! Alexis and Jessica's next move is to create a one-stop shop dubbed #TRUTHBEAUTY where you can pick up all of your essentials for a reasonable price, and feel good about knowing what's inside of them.
To start, the pair have put together a Kickstarter, which is pretty much the definition of win-win: Your donation buys a beauty bag loaded with the best five skincare and beauty essentials that are all made by "badass women."
Packaged in custom, environmentally friendly cases by Baggu, the skincare essentials are available for men and women for $55, which is a bargain compared to the $102 retail price. There's also a bag of beauty essentials that ring in at $55 (compared to $112 retail).
