Beautycounter

Safe, beauty and personal care products, all in one place.

Your body can absorb up to 60% of anything you put on it, meaning that thing things you use on your body like lotion, face cream, make-up are all being absorbed by YOUR body.  That means that what you put ON your body is almost as important as what you put IN your body.

I have been hunting for safe beauty products since 2013, and have had a lot of trouble finding a company that has a quality product that is accessible.   I started this journey a few years after I had cleaned up my food and diet, when we decided that we were going to start a family and I began doing more reading and research on all of the things to avoid while you’re expecting.  Which begs the question, why would you use something that is potentially toxic to you even if you’re not planning to start a family or growing a baby!

The beauty industry is regulated by the FDA; however, the latest regulation was passed in 1938….that was a LONG time ago and things have definitely changed since then.  How else can you explain products with lead in them still being sold, in beauty products like lipstick, which you know is getting into your body!  I love the Beautycounter is committed to safety, you can learn more about everything that goes into ensuring the quality of Beautycounter products as well as have full transparency on what is in them, and what is not!

I found out about Beautycounter in the beginning of 2016 and have now had the opportunity to try their products and learn more about the company.  Their primary goal is education and safety, along with providing high quality products that are fully transparent.  I encourage you to to check out their products, at Beautycounter.  In addition to being completely transparent about all of their ingredients, they also have all of their products tested by a third party, the EWG, and all products are highly rated.

Want to check them out, here are a few of my favorite things!

Mascara – this has been one of the hardest beauty products for me to replace, and Beautycounter makes an amazing mascara.  You will not be disappointed!  Hint, I use coconut oil to take my eye make-up off, you can also use other products but I’ve found this to be cost effective, easy, and nice to my skin.

Charcoal Soap – this is a favorite that often sells out, it is amazing how this bar really pulls the impurities out of your skin!  I use this to wash my face and am a fan of the combination of the charcoal to pull the impurities and the coconut oil base to clean and moisturize the skin.

Facial Oils– if you are afraid of putting oil on your skin because you’re afraid of it getting more oily, you couldn’t be more wrong!  I love the facial serums, they absorb quickly, are non-greasy, and hydrate your skin like nothing you’ve ever tried before.  All three serums smell amazing too.  Try  the Soothing Face Oil (#1) with Calendula to help soothe irritated skin and act as an anti-inflammatory (this is the best selling facial serum),  Try the Hydrating Face Oil (#2) with Jasmine for dry skin, to improve elasticity, and Try Balancing Face Oil (#3) with Ylang Ylang and Wild Chamomile for help re balancing your skin.

Sunscreen – While I’m a big fan of getting your Vitamin D naturally if you’re going to be out in the sun for a while you will probably need some sunscreen to protect your skin from getting burned.  Try the sunscreen or the sunscreen stick – both formulas are lightweight, water-resistant sunscreen is formulated with non-nano zinc oxide, so it blends seamlessly into skin without leaving white streaks, protecting you against both UVA and UVB rays, with an EWG rating of 1!

Tint Skin Foundation – I use this to help even out my skin tone, I’m not a big “make up” person so I am not one to  usually go with a foundation.  This helps to even out my skin tone and isn’t heavy or feel like I’m wearing a lot of make up – a win-win!

Baby Soothing Oil – I love this, a little goes a long way and keeps your baby or toddler’s skin amazingly soft.  It doesn’t leave their skin greasy at all either, which is something I found with my home-made lotions that often happened.  This product doubles for you mom and is great on your skin too, and as an alternative make-up remover!
