Why Beautycounter: Glowing Moments 2016

img_9342

I will be the first to admit that this “wholeistic” lifestyle/mommy blog of mine has been overrun with posts about Beautycounter in the last couple of months. It’s for good reason though as this brand of safe beauty products has been life changing for me. Not only have they improved my skin while being made of completely safe ingredients, Beautycounter has  offered me an opportunity to share my passion for safer products! This is an easy mission to share when these  products work so, so well.  It has also been a chance to earn an income as well, however I want that to look like! Not only does Beautycounter produce amazing products, their mission is to improve the industry as a whole and get safer products into the hands of everyone!

Beautycounter, a conscious personal skin care brand that offers a luxurious line of skincare, makeup and other personal care products. Their mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone.

This makeup is fabulous, especially their Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation. It’s light, hydrating while being completely full-coverage and safe! It actually feels good for my skin!

I have been on the hunt for better personal care products for years!! I haven’t found anything that can compare to this line of products

Some other notable items

Lip Sheer: Buttery sheer lipstick with build-able colour.

Lengthening Mascara: It is hard to find a quality mascara with less-harsh ingredients. Beautycounter has done it!

Lip Gloss: A safer and non-sticky alternative. Layer over lip sheer for a subtle shine and for extra moisture.

Mattifying Powder: This product is awesome! Wear it under foundation to soak in shine and oil and over foundation as a finishing touch and/or highlighter!

Matte Bronzer: The no.1 bronzer is very popular! Great for conturing and giving your skin that sun kissed glow (I know I need it)!

The power of grey: beautycounter charcoal bar and mask

img_7226

I have been using charcoal and clay in my skincare and even in my dietary routine for some time now. The Beautycounter Charcoal Bar and Purifying Charcoal Mask are amazing for acne prone skin. These products purify your skin while smoothing and enhancing your complexion. You can use the Charcoal Mask as a spot treatment as well. I find that both of these products work to prevent my breakouts while balancing my complexion and minimizing the look of my pores and scarring. My skin feels renewed and refreshed after each treatment.

Charcoal Bar
Our Charcoal Cleansing Bar detoxifies and absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. Made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.
Purifying Charcoal Mask
A mineral-rich mix of kaolin clay and charcoal, Purifying Charcoal Mask works to gently exfoliate, draw out impurities, and soothe. The formula helps improve skin’s overall condition by refining the appearance of pores and increasing elasticity. Offers a purifying treatment for congested skin and a 10-minute spa-grade facial. For the deepest clean, prep skin with Charcoal Cleansing Bar.

BEAUTYCOUNTER | Better products for the busy mom

IMG_6626.jpg

I am always on the hunt for better personal care products. My preference is to use products that are free from toxins which will not affect my health, now more than ever as I am breastfeeding. Our skin is our largest organ, therefore, what we put on it ultimately goes into our body and I want to make sure that what I am putting on to my skin is just as good as anything I would ingest. That being said, I want natural products that perform well and do what they claim they are supposed to do.

While I am not super big into wearing makeup, I do have a certain routine that I follow and a few must have products but, I really am not one to go over the top, I simply want products that work well and won’t have any negative effects. And, as  busy mom, I want products that are safe and give an impact with little effort.

Recently I discovered Beautycounter, a beauty product/personal care product company with a mission: “To get safer products into the hands of everyone.”  Of course, this was something I could get behind and as I learned more, I was really looking forward to trying their products. I was a bit skeptical at first, it was a big promise and many better products I had tried didn’t always live up to what they were supposed to do. But, the more I looked into Beautycounter, the more I was intrigued. Their mission not only includes education about why their products are better but also why it is so important to not include thousands of ingredients that are often lurking in everyday personal care items.

At Beautycounter, we’ve banned more than 1,500 ingredients, setting a new health and safety standard— all while ensuring our products perform, and are as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick, or oil in the market.

Their website includes an ingredient list as well as a never list of harmful ingredients that will never be included in Beautycounter products.

And while Beautycounter is definitely not the most bare-bones natural in regards to ingredients, they definitely offer great products which include much less in the way of harmful ingredients. Good news though, most of their products test fair-good on the EWG’s Skin Deep database. 

Here is what I’ve tried so far:

Beautycounter Nourishing Cream Cleanser

I love the feel and the smell of this cleanser. I like that it is a lightweight cleanser and it really leaves my skin feeling refreshed. It cleanses but is light and watery so it does the job without leaving a residue. I contains witch hazel, coconut oil, and aloe, and seems to be a perfect combination for my skin with ingredients providing cleaning and soothing at the same time.

Beautycounter Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation

This is on my list of top foundations that I have ever tried. The foundation is light weight, full coverage, and it gives great moisture which can add to that dewy look! I really love the feel of this foundation and it definitely improves the look of my skin.IMG_6626

Beautycounter Sheer Lipstick in Twig

This is like a lipgloss/lipstick. It lasts fairly well and has some shine to it. It also moisturizes your lips which I really like. I am generally more of a matte lipstick person but I like this look for something simple during the day. I like the colour I chose as it’s neutral with a bit of a pinky hue so I think it goes with everything.IMG_6625
