I’m sharing 5 of my must-have Beautycounter skincare products that I’m never without! These products are clean and effective.
As a top leader with Beautycounter products, I stand by these clean and effective products. Gone are the days of “crunchy” beauty. While coconut oil has its time and place, and I love a good DIY product, I’m grateful for squeaky clean personal care products that perform just as well as luxury brands on the market.
At Beautycounter, we’ve banned more than 1,800 ingredients setting a new health and safety standard— all while ensuring our products perform, and that they’re as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick or oil in the market. I didn’t only fall in love with Beautycounter because their products are safe and high performing, but I wanted to work with a company that is working towards real change. Beautycounter is dedicated to making changes on the legislative level and creating a safe skin care movement. They are taking action in Washington and working to reform the current laws, in hopes that other skin care companies will follow their strict safety guidelines.
Beautycounter is dedicated to product performance, as much as product safety. After trying countless non-toxic cosmetic brands (you don’t even want to know how much money I’ve spent on this!), I can tell you that this combination of non-toxic ingredients and products that work is extremely rare.
Some natural cosmetic brands use only 100% organic ingredients. This is as pure as makeup can get, but often, the performance is lacking. While Beautycounter uses both synthetic and organic ingredients, they never compromise on the safety of the ingredients. Beautycounter has developed a groundbreaking and rigorous ingredient screening process, looking for data on skin irritation, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, cumulative exposure (are we exposed to this chemical from other sources) and more.
Every single Beautycounter product is rated between 0-2 on EWG’s Skindeep database, which is my go-to resource for researching product safety.
These products work extremely well and are comparable to the luxurious brands I am used to purchasing at department stores. Except, they are void of all the harsh chemicals. My skin has honestly never looked better!
These are a handful of my must-have Beautycounter skincare products:
1. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer
This sheer-coverage tinted moisturizer helps even skin tone as it protects against sun’s damaging rays with SPF 20 mineral sunscreen. The formula features a blend of black currant seed oil, peony root extract, and vitamin C to help brighten while leaving skin looking radiant. It’s ideal for any minimalist makeup routine!
2. Overnight Resurfacing Peel
This is the gateway Beautycounter product for many people and one of my top 3 skincare products! Don’t be fooled by the name – you don’t actually peel when you use this. It’s similar to a serum that exfoliates dead skin cells to help minimize pores, fine lines, and acne scars while improving skin tone, texture, dullness, and literally makes your skin glow! It is amazing for all skin types.
3. All Bright C SerumThis brightening vitamin C serum is the daytime companion to the Resurfacing Peel. Think of the two products as BFFs, they are the ultimate glow duo! This game-changing serum has an ultra-potent 10% blend of two forms of vitamin C to instantly brighten skin and help reduce the appearance of existing dark spots. It also includes antioxidant-rich turmeric (which gives it a gorgeous yellow color) and camu camu to help protect against new dark spots and promote an even skin tone – a.k.a. sunshine in a bottle!
4. Charcoal Facial Mask
Ten minutes is all you need to a purified complexion: this nutrient-rich kaolin clay mask with activated charcoal purifies and balances, absorbing excess oil and drawing out impurities. Salicylic and lactic acids aid in a gentle exfoliation, giving skin a smooth, polished look with a minimized appearance of pores. It’s perfect for those concerned with congestion and oily skin. I love this mask for “Self-care Sunday.”
5. Countersun Daily Sheer Defense For Face
A must for summer or any outdoor activities! Formulated with non-nano since oxide, this lightweight facial sunscreen protects against UVA, UVB, and blue light rays while leaving no chalky white cast.
