If I told you that some of your beauty products have been linked to cancer, hormone disruption, infertility, and other health issues would you believe it? Would you do something about it? Well, I am!! I have joined Beautycounter, an incredible company dedicated to getting safer cosmetics and skin care products into the hands of everyone. Not only are their products SAFE, but they perform like your currently products, or better.
Today, I wanted to share with you why this movement to safer beauty is so important to me and why I have come to adore Beautycounter. I’m also going to share a few of my favorite products that I use everyday!!
When hearing statistics like: The FDA bans 30 harmful ingredients from our beauty products, but in the European Union nearly 1,400 cosmetic ingredients are banned, it is upsetting!! We deserve better. All Beautycounter ingredients go through an Ingredient Selection Process they have created to make their products safe and they have earned the trust of thousands of women around the United States and Canada. Beautycounter uses “The Never List” which is made up of over 1,500 harmful or potentially harmful ingredients that will NEVER be in any of their products. Constant research is being done to keep this list up to date.
Just like eating healthy and exercising, you need to take care of your skin by using safe products!! Your skin is your biggest organ and your first line of defense!! As a nurse, I know it is so important to take care of your body and take responsibility for what I put in my body and on it. Fortunately, we have a choice. We can choose what products we use and I am choosing Beautycounter. I love their mission and everything they believe in. They do SO much to make sure we have safe and amazing products available for us, our Moms, our kids, best friends, nieces, nephews, and everyone that is so important to you!!!

Where to Start
Not sure where to start? I know it can be overwhelming!! I was in your position at one point, realizing the products I have been using for years could be harming my body and I had NO idea!! So scary!! But, lucky for you, you have a choice and you can choose better products for yourself by switching to Beautycounter. Where to start though?? I think the best place to start is with the Clean Swap that Beautycounter talks about. The products that are the worst offenders for harsh ingredients include eye and face creams, facial masks, body lotion, lipstick, mascara, and shampoo. Beautycounter offers safer alternatives that still perform just as you need!!
My Beautycounter Favorites
1. No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask – This facial mask is amazing it helps bring out impurities leaving your skin soft and clean. The charcoal ingredient minimizes the appearance of pores!!
2. Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion – A light daytime facial moisturizer!! I use this every morning and it leaves your face moisturized, without an oily appearance, all day long.
3. Cleansing Balm – This might be my all time favorite product. This cleanser removes dirt and makeup and moisturizes at the same time. You simply massage a small amount on your face, wait a few minutes, and remove with a damp cloth. Or for an overnight moisture mask, leave on all night and remove in the morning.
1. Sheer Lipstick – This lipstick is feels so moisturizing and adds a light even color that isn’t too bold!! Available in 13 colors, this color is Rose. If you love your bold lipstick colors that the Color Intense Lipstick is for you!!
2. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer – Available in 5 shades and so amazing!! This tinted moisturizer adds a light color to your skin without a makeup feel and protects all day long with the 20 SPF. I am using shade No. 3.
3. Touchup Skin Concealer Pen – I just tried this concealer for the first time this week and it is the BEST concealer I have ever tried!! I am seriously so thankful for this product! I get horrible hormonal breakouts on my chin around my period and this concealer covered them up without looking like caked on makeup!!! I 100% know you will love this product!!! I have shade Medium 1 and in the winter I will probably need the shade Light. I also love that it is a pen, so easy to throw in a clutch or your purse when you’re out and about and have a break out or dark tired eyes!
4. Color Pinch Cream Blusher – This is another product that I just recently tried and fell in love with it!! This blush gives an unbelievable natural color to my cheeks! This color is called hibiscus. Available in two other pretty colors for different skin tones!
Beautycounter also offers a Flawless in Five makeup package that is totally worth the investment!! You receive 6 products for 25% off!
For all you that have kiddos, there are amazing products for them as well!! Shampoo, Conditioner, Lotion, Baby Oil, Diaper Cream, just to name a few. Check out all the family products here.
