In case you missed this post, I have recently hopped on board Beautycounter as a consultant for my love of their skincare and makeup products. Investing in better, safer beauty especially after welcoming a little girl into our lives was an easy decision and with the little bit of “spare” time I do have, I wanted to tell others about it! Just as a quick reminder, and for those who haven’t heard of Beautycounter, our mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. The growing collection includes safer skin care, hair care, bath & body products, kids’ and babies’ products, anti-aging treatments, and high-performance makeup. You can always shop or explore direct from the site! Consultants are just here to educate and spread the word 🙂Today, I’m here to share my Top 5 Favorite Beautycounter items (edition #1, lol) as I am sure this will change over time! And believe me when I say choosing just 5 was not an easy feat, especially when we are talking skincare AND makeup!
One of my favorite items specifically from this line is the clear pore cleanser. It cleans just enough to leave me feeling squeaky clean & refreshed but not too much that it over-dries (which is key as then I will overproduce oil!). It has tiny jojoba beads that gently slough away dead skin cells. Plus it is infused with a yummy citrus scent! While we are on this topic, any with oily skin and is in the market for a new moisturizer should consider the matte effect gel cream. Oil free and keeps moisture locked in all day – I don’t have enough good things to say about it.
#2 Color Intense Lipstick
I’ve never been someone who wore a lot of lipstick. The constant re-applying and rubbing off, smudging, etc was just too much! However Color Intense is the most low-maintenance lipstick on the planet!Beautycounter even calls it our “one-swipe lipstick”. Yes – one swipe and it doubles as a stain, leaving the color on all day/night. It is also made with natural peppermint oil for a little extra oomf. My favorite colors are the 9-5 and Backstage!
#3 Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel
A Beautycounter MUST HAVE! This overnight resurfacing peel is like a facial in a bottle. The formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter complexion. For someone with new and old blemishes poking through, I feel like this peel helps with cell turnover – encouraging those dark spots to say bye-bye. I typically use this product 1-2x a week, this goes on clean skin and a moisturizer should be layered on top, wash off in the morning.

#4 Satin Powder Blush
If I could only choose one makeup item to wear the rest of my life, it would be blush. So, thank God Beautycounter’s satin blush didn’t let me down! It is specially designed to deliver buildable color payoff without questionable ingredients. I’m a big fan of the color Nectar. It is peachy – brownish in color so combine a bronzer and blush into one in my opinion. Can’t go wrong!
#5 Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye cream
I just recently added the Countertime eye cream into my regiment and already noticed a brighter look to my eyes in the morning. This cream, along with most items in the Countertime collection feature a plant-derived Retinatural Complex (created using two of the most powerhouse plant-derived ingredients available and created a scientific breakthrough. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinol). As I learned through pregnancy and nursing, retinol is not safe. So bring on this new new!
That’s a wrap for the top 5 Beautycounter items I am loving right now. I carry samples in all of the skincare lines so never be shy — ask away or fill out the skincare quiz for some direction! I’m all about sending people samples to try before committing too.
Our mission is to get safer products in the hands of everyone.
