I’ve always loved trying new products, and I recently got a few new Beautycounter products that I wanted to share with you.
Also, stay tuned until the end of this post because I am offering a FREE gift with purchase from now through Monday, June 19.
For the past several months I have been using the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer, which I really like! It is lightweight, has sunscreen in it, and leaves your skin with a dewy hue, which is perfect for summer. However, I had been wanting a little more coverage and have been wanting to try the Tint Skin, which is their true foundation. After just a couple of times using it, I love it already. It definitely has more coverage, which I like, applies easily, and doesn’t leave a cakey appearance afterwards. I purchased the ‘Sand’ color, which is slightly darker than I would usually go, but I wanted something darker for my summer skin.
Lip Gloss – Peony
I have a slight obsession with lip gloss. I started this habit that I “need” to apply lip gloss after brushing my teeth each time. It is kind of a silly/random habit, but it has caused me to have quite the lip gloss collection. Up until I purchased this Lip Gloss in Peony from Beautycounter, I have been using some chemical-laden lip gloss from Victoria’s Secret. Gross, I know, so I was very happy when this safe lip gloss came in the mail. The peony color has the subtlest hint of color, which is perfect for everyday wear. I also particularly like the applicator–kind of random, but the tip is bent, and the bristles on the brush are really soft. I love that Beautycounter pays attention to the little things in their products.
No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil
This winter I posted about my love for the Soothing Face Oil. It was the only thing that cleared up my dry skin after trying far too many other products. Shortly after purchasing the Soothing Oil, they discontinued it, which was a bummer, so I picked up the No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil now instead. I honestly had a hard time choosing between the three facial oils but ultimately chose No. 3 because I often do have combination skin during the summer, which helps calm and ‘balance’ those two extremes. I do love this facial oil just as much. It works so well to combat to soothe and softens kin. To be honest, I don’t love the scent as much as my previous Soothing Oil. By no means do I think the Balancing Oil has a bad scent–but rather just not quite as pleasant as the Soothing Oil.
Daily Shampoo & Daily Conditioner
I didn’t really have a lot of hope for the Daily Shampoo or the Daily Conditioner from Beautycounter. I just hadn’t heard rave reviews on them like I had for some of the other products. But, holy cow, I really, really like this stuff. The smell of my shampoo and conditioner is a big selling point for me. Both products have a more subtle scent, which is nice, but not quite as fragrant as other brands I’ve tried. BUT I know these products are a lot better for my hair and skin. What I especially love about this shampoo and conditioner is how soft my hair feels when blow drying it and after it is dry. I don’t know that I’ve used any other shampoo and conditioner that has left my hair this soft–and I’ve used some higher-end products before. So needless to say, I would give these two products two thumbs up.
I can’t stress enough how much I love Beautycounter’s line of products and would honestly continue to use them even if I wasn’t a consultant.
First and foremost, they are safe–free of 1500 harmful chemicals! I’ve made a lot of changes in my life these past few months with trying to reduce the chemicals that enter my body–being mindful of air freshener use, cleaning products, hands soap, etc. I’ve made these changes slowly over the past few months and plan to continue to work to reduce my expose to chemicals in my home and daily life.
Secondly, these are truly quality products. You get what you pay for! I am all about paying a little more for products that work well and do what they say they are going to do. I have yet to be disappointed by any Beautycounter products. But if you ever are, they have an awesome 60 day return policy.
Sooo. . . .here’s your chance to try some of their products as well. If you purchase $100 in Beautycounter products (before taxes and shipping charges), I will send you one of the following products for FREE:
- A beloved Charcoal Cleansing Bar (A Beautycounter favorite.)
- Or a Protect Stick Sunscreen (Face), which is perfect for carrying in your purse, diaper bag, or beach tote. (This Sunscreen Stick was even part of Rachel Zoe’s Box of Style this summer.)
