I’ve been using Beautycounter’s sunscreen on my face for over a year and absolutely love it. It goes on decently thick so you know it’s covering completely, but it rubs in well and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy. So when I had the opportunity to try out a some more products a couple months ago I jumped at the chance! Emily from Designed Elegance came over and we got to play and chat all things Beautycounter.
As a makeup artist, Emily was able to help me pick the right colors for my skin tone and I quickly picked out a blush, lip gloss, face mask and a body scrub. After trying out these additional products and learning more about the brand, I knew I wanted to get even more involved with Beautycounter. So Emily and I have partnered up, and I’m super excited to be now offering Beautycounter counter products on my own site!
To be 100% honest at first I wasn’t sure if I wanted to join Beautycounter as a consultant. What I did know was that I loved the products. And then when I learned more about their mission I realized that this is something I can really get behind. Did you know that it is actually LEGAL for US companies to use known carcinogens in their products? Products we put on our faces and bodies. Products we put on our KIDS faces and bodies. Yikes. That terrifies me. I want something better. All of Beautycounter products adhere to The Never List – meaning they ban more then 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients. That alone makes me feel so much better.
As a busy mom of now FOUR kiddos, I also love that it’s a one stop shop. There are so many beauty products out there, it’s nice to be able to go to one site and know I’m getting safer products for both me and my kiddos. Ones that perform just as well if not better then other luxury alternatives.
Some of my favorites include the face masks, cleansing balm, these lip sheers, and this body lotion. And for summer I honestly can’t live without this sunscreen, and I use this sunscreen stick on kiddos faces every day. I also tested out the Glow Shimmer Oil and it’s next on my list. A fun product that adds just a bit of bronze and shimmer to your body, perfect for a subtle summer glow.
But it’s not just about buying and selling products. These ladies went to DC, to Congress, urging them to pass better beauty laws. They mean business! I love their mission and passion to get safer beauty products into the hands of everyone. It is a mission I want to join.
If you are interested in learning more and trying some products I’d love for you to check out my site. And always feel free to reach out with any questions. It’s a learning process, for me as well, and I’d love to share the journey for safer products with you!
