As I’m marking each email with a #greenbeauty sale that arrives in my inbox, I am almost a bit hesitant to share them with you as I did last year in a big post of savings as a different kind of message is cropping up.

So, this is me, patting myself on the back, saying, “Jade, old chap, I know you’ve been stressed over school and hating on yourself for the little things, but it’s okay. Have some cookies. Or better yet, some May Lindstrom Clean Dirt that smells like the best cookies and has the most amazing ingredients. Now you’re a super poor college student and can never spend money on anything else again, so you better enjoy it. And more importantly, love yourself. You do your skin no favors if you don’t love and accept yourself.”
