Why The Maker Counter?

THIS is why The Maker Counter:


THIS is ridiculous. THIS is insane. THIS is marketing and mindless consumerism at its worst.

Replacing millions of beauty products with millions of natural, “green” beauty products is a bit ironic, don’t you think? As Carrie Bradshaw famously put it, “A squirrel is just a rat in a cuter outfit.”

In 2014, the options in skin care products are literally endless. The result? Nearly every client who enters Milagro claims to have sensitive skin — red, irritated, reactive, itchy, allergic.

Perhaps the answer isn’t more natural skin care products. Perhaps it’s less skin care products. Sometimes the best way to break an addiction is to go cold turkey. Let The Maker Counter be your detox. Only when you wean yourself from the strip-scrub-slather-cycle will you discover how truly amazing your skin can be . . . naturally. The Maker Counter may need a warning label. Possible side effects may include:

  1. Inability to swallow marketing B.S.

  2. Increased ability to spot ads that prey on your insecurities

  3. Newfound respect for your own skin

  4. Spare time to spend on things you love

  5. Spare cash to spend on whatever you want

  6. Spare energy and brain power to spend on the billion things that are more important than how young you look

Women deciding they don’t need what the beauty industry is selling? This could be dangerous.

Look out, folks. It’s about to get interesting.
