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.

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!

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!
