Beautycounter Product Spotlight: Cleansing Balm

IMG_9440

The Beautycounter Cleansing Balm is seriously MY FAVOURITE product! It has so many uses! It can be used as a facial cleanser, makeup remover, overnight mask and moisturizer. It’s great for skin brightening, elasticity, problem skin, eczema, you name it, it can help it! My clients have found it has dealt with troublesome dead skin and scarring!

The Cleansing Balm melts into your skin to hydrate while it cleanses, removing makeup and other impurities but never stripping away moisture. With vitamin C to brighten the appearance of skin and raspberry and cranberry seed oils to hydrate, the formula can also be used as an intensely nourishing face mask. Bonus? You also get our reusable 100% muslin cloth, softer and easier on skin than a traditional washcloth.

100% of women showed a significant increase in skin hydration after eight hours, with an average increase of 25%. (Results based on independent, 24-hour, 25-subject, single-blind clinical and consumer perception study.)

Our Ingredient Selection Process ensures safer and cleaner products that work beautifully. This rigorous process handpicks the best ingredients, such as an antioxidant-packed fruit trio. What’s not included? Approximately 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals on our “Never List” that we never use to formulate our products.

Introducing Beautycounter +

As you all know I am obsessed with Beautycounter! I haven’t found anything this good and made with safe ingredients, ever. When I decided to become a consultant I was happy to share with others because I just loved the products so much! Many of the people I have been sharing the products with love them too.

It is always exciting when Beautycounter comes out with new products! Beautycounter + is no exception. I was excited to get my hands on these items as they are treatment products designed to complement the already amazing skincare lineup.

Each collection is wonderful but, my favourite one is the Brightening + vitamin c. This collection uses vitamin c complex and enhances dull skin while boosting radiance. Great for age spots and good to create an all-around brighter complexion! The mask smells divine and the mist is so refreshing!

The balancing + charcoal is familiar but the addition of the mist takes it up a notch. The Beautycounter charcoal products are definitely items you want to have on hand weather you need help with acne or just want to keep blemishes at bay. These charcoal products have been incredible helpful to my combination skin.

Safer Regimens. Real Results.

Beautycounter’s high-shine Lip Gloss in Ruby pairs up perfectly with côte’s safer Nail Polish in shade B6 for an exclusive Valentine’s Day Duo every woman will love.

  • Beautycounter’s moisturizing Lip Gloss goes on smoothly with no stickiness. Its unique teardrop applicator delivers the perfect amount of sheer, infinitely wearable color and subtle shine.
  • All of côte’s polishes and treatments are free of the major harmful ingredients often associated with nail polish, so you get all the chip-resistant, long lasting shine without sacrificing your health.

This safer set of irresistibly flattering shades make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.

Set includes:

Color Sweep Blush Duo in Bloom/Tulip

• Delivers the perfect amount of healthy-looking, luminous color. These satiny powders contain Porcelain Flower Extract (a Thai bloom known for its antioxidant benefits) to help moisturize the skin, blending seamlessly. Two complementary shades—one slightly deeper than the other—can be worn alone, layered, or even mixed together.

Sheer Lipstick in Rose (My personal fave)

• This silky-smooth, long-lasting formula is lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing, for the perfect mix of sheer colour and polished sheen. Every shade was colour-tested to ensure that each hue complements all skin tones. Plus, there’s no synthetic fragrance—just a sophisticated hint of vanilla planifolia.

What you may not know about your personal care products

I have been on a personal mission for years to clear my life of as many toxins as possible. It is no easy task between the greenwashing of products with labels like “all natural,” or “green” meaning absolutely nothing, and the lack of regulation in the industry.

Did you know?
  • “Fragrance” is considered a trade secret, so companies don’t have to disclose what it is. Usually, it is a synthetic concoction that includes phthalates and synthetic musks, which are hormone disruptors, as well as chemicals that are allergens and neurotoxins.
  • Some chemicals are not intentionally added to products but are the result of chemical reactions happening inside the bottle of product (such as formaldehyde in shampoo) or during manufacturing (such as 1,4 dioxane in moisturizers or heavy metals in color cosmetics).
  • When manufacturing companies buy bulk ingredients from ingredient suppliers (aloe vera gel or grapefruit seed extract), they are often getting an already-preserved raw ingredient (aloe vera gel with added phenoxyethanol, or grapefruit seed extract with added methlyparaben). But the end product does not have to list these preservatives, so a product marketed as “preservative-free” or “paraben-free” may contain those chemicals after all.
  •  The European Union (EU) bans close to 1,400 ingredients from cosmetics. The federal Canadian government currently prohibits less than 600 substances for use in cosmetics through Health Canada. The Office of the General Auditor in Canada announced in the spring of 2016 that Health Canada, “…does not regularly test cosmetic products to verify the accuracy of product labels or to check for the presence of prohibited substances, microbial contaminants, and heavy metals.”

I had dabbled in safer products for years, testing out various brands and finding some success and some failures. I used many products that I thought were safe but upon further research, they included many harmful ingredients – marketing, am I right!?

I had sworn off makeup in pregnancy and it wasn’t until I discovered Beautycounter that I felt more comfortable to use more products again. There are a ton of safer beauty brands on the market and many are totally awesome! It is all dependent on what works best for you! For me, and many others, that has been Beautycounter! Beautycounter has a never list of 1500 potentially hazardous ingredients that they will NEVER use in any of their products! Beautycounter rates highly (EWG Certified or 1-3 on the EWG Skin Deep database) that’s good!
