Safer Beauty Product Life

Hey everyone!

My name is Ashley. I just wanted to explain how I started on my journey. I swear I hit 30 and my body decided it hated me lol. I started having all these health problems. Migraines, hair loss, fatigue, weak muscles and much more. I saw so many specialist. I finally went to a functional medicine doctor. In functional medicine, they don’t just treat the symptoms, but try to figure out what is causing the symptoms to occur in the first place. I found out that I had very high mercury levels. I started a detoxification process. I did a lot of reading and listening to podcasts on diets because I was worried about the impact of what I was eating on my body. I stumbled upon the idea of clean skincare. I was paying so much attention to what I was putting inside my body, but was ignoring what I was putting on the outside. Your skin absorbs ingredients just as much as your stomach digests food. I didn’t realize that what you put on you skin could be harmful for you and for the planet and that the industry was so unregulated.

Why I switched to clean beauty products:

The last law enacted for cosmetics was in 1938! This law, the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act of 1938 enables the Food and Drug Administration to oversee the cosmetic industry, but has not been updated since and is only about two pages long. The United States only bans 30 cosmetic ingredients, meanwhile Canada bans ~600, and the EU bans ~1,400.

One of the reasons why I switched to Beautycounter is that they make the precautionary principal easy. Their products have stricter standards than even the EU! They make up their own Never List which includes ~1,500 ingredients that they never put in their products and includes the ~1,400 ingredients the EU already bans. Until our government catches up, With Beautycounter it is easy because I don’t have to go to product websites and look up individual ingredients one by one. They disclose ALL of their ingredients and do not hide behind trade secrets. Beautycounter makes their own Never List. They ban all of the ingredients the EU does plus another ~100 more.

Beautycounter is Certified by the Environmental Working Group:

Beautycounter ranks highly on the Environmental Working Group’s (EWG) website and has received their certification. The EWG is a “non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment.” One of my favorite resources is the cosmetics database. You can search any product or ingredient here and see how it scores according to EWG. It provides an overall score out of 10 with 1 being the safest, and then gives a score for each of the ingredients in the product with their own ranking and the reasons behind their ranking.

Safer Skincare Reduces My Exposure to Health Risks:

Watching one of the strongest women I know lose her life from breast cancer was one of the hardest things. She left behind three young children who had to grow up without their mother. Preventing cancer is huge for me, majority of breast cancers are caused by environmental and/or lifestyle factors.
I also still struggle with other health issues, such as fatigue.

Beautycounter purposely chooses ingredients that have no known health risks. They do not, however, assume that the absence of data means an ingredient or chemical is safe, and will consistently review emerging data and even commission their own studies when there is not enough information out there. They even have a partnership with Tufts University to research understudied chemicals and ingredients. This is one of the biggest reasons why I switched to Beautycounter.

Safer Skincare Protect Animals and their Habitats:

What we put on our bodies can greatly impact animals and their habitats. It may not seem like it, but as it gets absorbed into our skin, it also gets washed off in the shower and down the drain, or if we swim, in that body of water.

-Chemical sunscreens contains ingredient that cause coral bleaching (corals are animals!). Places in Mexico and the entire state of Hawaii have banned chemical sunscreens.
Beautycounter was actually part of the lobbying effort for the ban in Hawaii.

-Researchers have found large accumulations of the plastic micro-beads that you find in face and body scrubs in streams and fish

-Triclosan, an ingredient in anti-bacterial soap, toothpaste, and shampoo negatively impacts aquatic organisms, particularly green algae.

-Actual coral bleaching caused by sunscreen

Sustainable Products:

Beautycounter’s makeup wipes. Founder Gregg Renfrew would not make makeup wipes that would end up in landfills. Almost all makeup wipes are not biodegradable. Beautycounter made makeup wipes that you can compost. These are one of my favorite products. Beautycounter’s makeup wipes are one of the few that are biodegradable and compostable.

Sustainable Packaging:

Potentially harmful chemicals are prolific not only in cosmetic products, but also their packaging. Beautycounter maintains their own Packaging Material Restricted Substance List (kind of like the Never List for packaging) and even works with a research institute on leaching studies of packaging materials and plastic resins. They use paper instead of plastic when possible, which is all certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), and glass bottles made in North America over plastic.

I found products that are not only safer to use but work! I’m obsessed with these products!

Not only am I obsessed with the products but I’m obsessed with this company. What they do, what they stand for.

I know once you try these products you will love them just as much as I do. That’s why I’m sending free samples! All you have to do is text me your address and what skincare concerns you are having.

My Top Picks

All bright c serum

Brighten up with this game-changing serum. This ultra-potent 10% blend of two forms of vitamin C instantly brightens skin and helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots, while antioxidant-rich turmeric and camu camu extracts help protect against new ones. The formula also helps defend skin from the damaging effects of environmental stressors—revealing a more youthful-looking complexion.

Charcoal mask

Ten minutes 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. Perfect for those concerned with congestion and oily skin.

Resurfacing peel

Goodnight, dullness. Good morning, glow. Featuring a proprietary multi-acid complex, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and boosts clarity without irritation or over-drying. With glycolic, malic, and botanically derived lactic acid, the formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe to reveal a brighter, healthier looking, renewed complexion.

Lotus glow cleansing balm

This multi-tasking cleansing balm, perfect for day and night use, hydrates while it cleanses, removing makeup and impurities with nourishing ingredients that won’t strip away your skin’s natural moisture. (Bonus: it can also be used as a mask for a hydrating overnight facial.) With a blend of lotus extract, jojoba seed oil, and avocado seed oil, Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm soothes and destresses skin while increasing luminosity.

Dew 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. With continued use, skin will feel firmer and look more luminous*.

Join the tribe!

Create your dream life by locking arms with the most powerful and fast growing team!

There is a sign up that’s only $50. Beautycounter wanted to give women the ability to start a business at a lower price point, so the digital only enrollment fee is $50. That includes your own website, marketing materials, customer support, extensive training, and marketing they do on your behalf, e.g. emails they send out, digital advertising, etc. It’s a bargain given the quality of their website and marketing materials.

You also have the option to buy a starter set when you enroll, which is a group of best-selling products for 40% off retail price. Those sets are invaluable as you launch your business since people are 6x more likely to buy something once they can try it. You’ll want a variety of products to show at get togethers, to let people borrow and to make samples since everyone has different skin. And even when in-person get togethers aren’t happening as often right now, they help a LOT for any virtual events you do or just showing people how you use the products.
You can buy a set when you enroll or for 30 days afterwards, but not after that point. But again, they’re optional and you’re aren’t forced to buy one. However, I see faster business (and paycheck) growth from those who do buy one.

What about selling minimums? 

You have to sell $1200 in qualifying volume sales (orders from others + your own purchases) every 6 months. Six months is PLENTY of time to hit those numbers if you consistently work to grow your business. Most people hit that in the first 3-4 months.
The $1200 minimum includes your OWN purchases.

What if I don’t hit the minimums?

Nothing bad happens!! You don’t have to pay back or give back anything. The worst case, if you didn’t hit your minimums, is that you’d be converted to a band of beauty reward member which still has great perks.

You can do it!

Anything takes work. And what that takes is — consistency. And that’s what it takes to be successful with Beautycounter — consistency. You can’t try just one thing and give up if it doesn’t work. You try something else and you have to figure out what works for you.
you’ll be surprised at how much people proactively reach out to you once they know you’re a consultant. Most people WANT to use safer products but don’t know where to start, and Beautycounter makes it easy.

Is this an mlm?

Yeah, it is. I earn a percentage of the sales from people who sign up underneath me. But, I only get 5-9% of their sales vs. 25-35% of my own. So, I’m much more motivated to grow my own business than just ride off of theirs. And, the way it’s structured, I HAVE to still do my own work. You can’t just build a giant team, do nothing and make money off them.

If you don’t want to build a team, you don’t have to. And then it is absolutely no different from any other commission job out there.

Beautycounter does not have any of these requirements which are apparently common with others:

No autoship of products (for consultants or customers)

Customers have a choice who they shop through — or if they don’t want to shop with anyone at all, they don’t have to

No monthly minimum purchases for consultants

I don’t know of ANY other company getting the press and recognition that Beautycounter does. Beautycounter is a highly rated B corp. which is an extremely hard certification to get. They are ranked with Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Athleta and others as a company that uses business for good. It’s a pretty small group that earns the distinction and I like supporting companies who try to make a difference while also making a profit.

What are the commissions?

You get 25-35% of every order the percentage increases as the total amount you sell increases.

 Do I get a discount or free products?

Sure do. You get 25% off retail price on your own orders and opportunity to earn free products depending on how hard you work each month.

you actually like doing it?

Being a consultant has honestly been one of the most rewarding things I’ve done. I love helping people find safer options for skincare and makeup, and I love hearing back from people that they love the products.

Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm

Its a miracle in a jar!

If you’re new around here and haven’t heard of Beautycounter, we’re a safer skincare and beauty company with a social mission to change the legislation around the cosmetic industry. Our goal is that someday we won’t have to worry about what’s on labels. For now we’re providing safer, cleaner and highly effective products. Believe me when I say that, as someone who’s struggled with breakouts my entire life, my skin has never looked better than it does now!

Beautycounter Cleansing Balm Ingredients

Raspberry and Cranberry Seed Oils: these are nutrient-rich and so amazing for our skin!raspberry and cranberry seed oils are packed with Vitamin C to help brighten skin give you a more even, glowing complexion

Shea Butter: This helps deeply moisturize your skin, and is a big reason that in a study, 100% of women who tried the cleansing balm noticed an increase in hydration after just 8 hours! How crazy is that?! It also helps to combat inflammation, making it great for anyone with breakout-prone skin or those with eczema or rosacea.

Jojoba Seed Oil: Jojoba oil is closest to our skin’s natural oil or sebum which makes it excellent for skin care! It helps to hydrate the skin and is great for all skin types.
Avocado Oil: Avocado oil is packed with beta carotene and vitamins A, D & E to help hydrate our skin, boost collagen production and also help protect it from harmful UV rays.

Grapeseed Oil: Grapseed oil is high in omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E which make it especially amazing for your skin. It can help protect against free radicals that make our skin age prematurely.


Remove Makeup: Put an almond-size amount onto your skin and massage gently. Take a warm rag and wipe away your makeup to reveal clean skin. Works on eye makeup too, but be careful to not get it in your eye because it stings a bit.

Treating Eczema: I’ve seen so many amazing before and after’s of people using the cleansing balm on their eczema. Owen gets dry spots all the time and this reminded me that I need to try it out on his sensitive skin!

Facial Cleanser: My favorite use! Since using the cleansing balm as a nightly cleanser, I’ve seen huge improvements in my overall skin’s tone, clarity and brightness! I’m sharing my tutorial below.
Hydrating Mask: If your skin needs a little hydration boost, put the balm on clean skin and let it sit for 10-20 minutes. Remove with a damp cloth

Replenishing Overnight Mask: Okay, if 20 minutes isn’t enough for you and you need mega, serious hydration. Put it on clean skin and wear it overnight. Rinse with a warm cloth in the morning!

Heal Dried, Cracked Skin: Any dry skin you can think of, put some balm on it—elbows, heels, cuticles, hands, lips—you name it, it’ll work!

Soothe Chapped Skin: This is more for winter, but oh my, does my skin get chapped on cold, windy days! Using this heals it so quickly!

To Heal Acne: I’m always skeptical on products for breakouts, but I’ve been so impressed with this. It gets deep in your pores and cleans them so well without over-drying. It calms inflammation, hydrates and heals. It’s seriously a miracle-worker for anyone with breakout prone skin!

Stretch Mark Prevention & Healing: I didn’t use this with Owen, but I will the next go around. Using a small amount on your stomach throughout your pregnancy can greatly help to reduce stretch marks, though not completely—everyone’s body reacts differently to pregnancy.

Apply to Skin

Use the included scoop when scooping it out of the jar. This ensures that you’re not transferring any bacteria from your fingers into the container. A little goes a long way with this product which makes it extra worth it because it lasts a long time!
massage the product gently into your skin applying gentle pressure for at least a minute.

Charcoal mask

Clean out your pores!


Face masks are an excellent addition to your beauty routine. Here’s why: face masks are a concentrated, targeted way to combat pesky skin issues. Applying a face mask to your skin is essentially lathering a concentrated amount of good-for-your-face ingredients on so that your face can soak them up throughout your masking experience. When you choose the right face mask for your skin, you are able to target your specific skin issues, addressing them in a more rapid manner than you can with other forms of skincare.

What I love about Beautycounter is that their products are all free and clear of 1,800 potentially harmful ingredients  and are rigorously screened for safety.

Beautycounter Charcoal Mask

What Is It?

The Beautycounter Charcoal Mask  is an activated charcoal face mask that does an amazing job of clearing congestion, breakouts and keeping your skin looking clear and glowing. Just about anyone can use this, but it’s especially great for anyone who has oily skin or deals with breakouts and congestion.
The ingredients in here are designed to help clear your pores and leave your skin feeling amazing, and it does just that!

Beautycounter Charcoal Mask Key Ingredients

Kaolin Clay

Kaolin clay is helps remove excess oil and sebum from your skin without drying it out too much. This is so important because you don’t want to strip your skin of its natural oils.

Activated Charcoal Powder

Activated charcoal is one of the BEST ingredients for anyone who is concerned with congestion, oiliness or breakouts. Charcoal powder helps to clear skin by drawing out impurities, oil, dirt, and gunk from pores. Exactly why it’s such a rockstar ingredient for clearing skin.

Lactic & Salicylic Acids

These gentle acids are so beneficial for your skin. They can help resurface the skin, smooth the texture and give your skin a more radiant look.

Green Tea

Lastly, green tea is another great ingredient here. Green tea is full of antioxidants and is a great ingredient for anti-aging.

How To Use The Beautycounter Charcoal Mask

Before using any mask, make sure to clean your skin really well. I always remove my makeup first with the lotus glow cleansing balm  and then deep clean my skin with a cleanser.
Next, apply a thin layer of the charcoal mask with clean fingers. Let it dry for 10 minutes before rinsing. You can literally see it working while it’s on. It starts dark and as it dries, it turns lighter grey. You can see where it’s pulling out excess oil from your skin too. Gross, but satisfying too!

Resurfacing Peel

Overnight face peel

I have really dark and big pores, especially around my nose (with frequent blackheads) that I always hated and try to cover up with a concealer. I never really felt comfortable without some kind of makeup to cover up my blemishes and dark spots.
I’ve tried a bunch of things to improve my skin texture in the past, from facials to chemical peels, and they would work for a little while then my skin would go back to how it was before. You know dry, uneven in color, and dead looking without the dewy glow that I was striving for.

My Initial Doubts

When I first heard about the Overnight Resurfacing Peel, I was skeptical, especially coming from a company that only uses safer ingredients. How powerful can this product be? I’m always a bit slow to try out new products, especially when there’s a huge hype about it, thinking that it’s just a fad that’ll pass.

But I decided to give it a try!

The Results

I actually saw my skin glow the morning after the first time I used it which made me so excited!

Some huge differences to note:

-My skin tone is so much more even in the second photo.

-Can you tell how much the texture of my skin improved? SO MUCH SMOOTHER.

-You can see how much my pores have reduced and are less visible, especially on and around my nose area.

-The acne scars on my chin are dramatically reduced

There’s no doubt I will continuously use this product for further improvements. And the best part? I haven’t felt this great in my skin in a while. I’ve even been going makeup free recently because I feel so confident about my skin,

What is in the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?

There are 15 acids derived from plants, including resurfacing acids, which gently remove the top layer of your skin. This layer is typically the most damaged with dead cells (making our skin look gray with more pigmentation and finer lines), and are the most stubborn to come off.  There are also soothing and hydrating acids in the peel so your skin doesn’t dry out while using the peel.

Major key ingredients and their benefits:

Glycolic acid: improves skin texture, resurfaces, exfoliates

Lactic acid: stimulates cell renewal promoting smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin

Malic acid: decreases the appearance of fine lines

Citric Acid: evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of dark spots

Hyaluronic acid: hydrates skin and helps it retain moisture

Fatty acids: including omegas 3 & 6, maintain skin’s barrier to prevent moisture loss, smooth skin, and provide antioxidant benefits

How do I use it?

You’ll want to use this peel at night 3 times a week after you cleansed your face of makeup and oil. You then add 1-2 pumps to your hand and gently apply a thin layer to your face and neck, then wait 4-5 minutes for it to absorb into your skin. You then follow up with a nourishing and hydrating cream moisturizer

How long is the recovery time?

There’s no recovery time! This is a no-peel peel. The acids gently exfoliate the skin to slough off the top layer of skin without being visible.

What skin issues is it good for?

Almost everyone can benefit from this peel, but it’s especially great for:

-acne scars

-dark spots

-u-neven pigmentation

-large pores and blackheads

-Fine lines and wrinkes

Can you use it with rosacea or eczema?

Yes! Because it’s so gentle, people with these skin issues actually found improvements in their skin after using it. The peel contains raspberry oil which is extremely soothing and great for reducing inflammation.
I do recommend you use a hydrating night cream afterwards if you suffer from rosacea or eczema. We have amazing hydrating products at Beautycounter!

Is it safe for pregnant and breastfeeding women?

Yes, but I would talk to your ob-gyn to see how they feel about it.

Who shouldn’t use the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?

Anyone with a super sensitive skin. I would first do a spot test that I mentioned in the answer to the previous question. However, many people who do have sensitive skin have reported that they are able to use the peel with no issues.

Anyone with sunburns or cuts

Anyone who’s done a professional chemical peel recently. I would wait full 60 days before using this peel.

Anyone currently using exfoliating or harsher products that are prescribed by a dermatologist. Talk to your dermatologist first before using it.

Is it vegan?

Sure is.

How long does a bottle last?

Depending how often you use it and how much (some people also use it on their hands and their shoulders to reduce dark spots), it should last about 4-6 months.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to contact me!!

All Bright C Serum

Beautiful glow to your skin

Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum review! Also sharing the benefits of incorporating this 10% blend of vitamin C for overall brighter skin & antioxidant protection throughout your day! 

Benefits of Beautycounter’s C Serum:

A unique blend of two ultra-stable forms of vitamin C delivers a supercharged 10% potency that instantly brightens your skin & helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots & or sun spots.

This C serum absorbs quickly into your skin allowing other products such as moisturizer to be layered on top.

Leaves skin glowing, delivers an instant radiance boost, & helps to even skin tone!

Clinically proven to*:

Even skin tone

Improve skin radiance/brightness

*After 8 weeks, 100% of users on a 32-subject clinical study said the C serum brightened their skin. 94% of users said it reduced the appearance of dark spots. 97% said skin looked more youthful & 94% of users said their skin tone looked more even

How is the All Bright C Serum different from other vitamin C serums on the market?

Beautycounter’s C Serum contains two forms of Japanese vitamin C for an ultra-potent & stable 10% blend! They use 5% bis-glyceryl ascorbate & 5% tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, which are effective at lower doses. Vitamin C can be very unstable, especially in its purest form, L-ascorbic. This means most vitamin C serums on the market lose stability & effectiveness quickly due to L-ascorbic being present within the formula. Using a vitamin C serum that has lost its effectiveness is essentially tossing money down the drain, so stability is key! There’s also a very fine line of including too much or too little vitamin C. Too much vitamin C (around 20%) may cause skin irritation & too little (around 5%) won’t deliver performance wise. Beautycounter’s 10% vitamin C blend really falls in the sweet spot of being effective & non-irritating!
This C-Serum is also formulated without the use of 1,800+ harmful or questionable ingredients. It’s also formulated without any dyes or synthetic fragrances. As with every other product, Beautycounter rigorously screens & tests each formula to ensure it’s safe for human health!
Finally, Beautycounter’s vitamin C serum is potent but doesn’t cause irritation. Most brands that offer vitamin C serums, sometimes try to up the percentage of the vitamin C present in the serum to make up for the fact that it might lose it’s stability. Not only does this not work, but a high level of vitamin C can be extremely irritant to the skin. Beautycounter has truly mastered the balance of potency, effectiveness, & zero irritation with this All Bright C Serum.

What are the key ingredients & benefits of this C Serum?

Vitamin C – Brightens skin, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, sun spots, while also helping to increase natural collagen production!

Turmeric – This antioxidant superstar helps improve overall radiance & the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles!

Camu Camu Extract – This powerful antioxidant helps brightens, evens skin tone, helps reduce the appearance of dark spots, & delivers an instant boost of radiance!

How often should you use a vitamin C Serum?

A: You can apply Beautycounter’s All Bright C Serum every morning!

Will this C Serum make my skin sensitive to the sun?

A: No, this C Serum will not make your skin sensitive to the sun. If you do have sensitive skin, it’s always recommended that you perform a small patch test first. There is also no photosensitivity with this serum either.

Anti-aging skincare line

Beautycounter's skin-care line called Countertime  is made specifically for aging skin. It includes a proprietary plant-based substitute for retinol, a popular but potentially harmful skin-care ingredient.

the products were gentle, hydrating, and easy to layer.

My skin did appear plumper, firmer, and better hydrated overall.

Beautycounter, known for its clean beauty  and strict policy of eschewing potentially harmful ingredients, has its first-ever skin-care line engineered specifically for aging skin: 
For aging skin, Beautycounter's main concerns were strengthening the skin's natural barrier, increasing its ability to defend itself against environmental stressors, and visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles by fortifying the skin's elasticity and firmness. 
In most skin-care lines designed for aging skin, you'll find retinol in the ingredients list. According to Harvard Health, retinoids are the most used anti aging compound. Their benefits include reducing fine lines and wrinkles by increasing collagen production, improving skin color by stimulating new blood vessels, and fading age spots and softening rough patches. However, Beautycounter decided to forgo adding retinol to Countertime due to concerns over its safety — citing internal and external studies that have shown potential toxicity  and general skin irritation (the latter a mainstream consumer complaint). 
Removing retinol from a debut collection designed specifically for aging skin leaves a big hole in the recipe. To fill it, Beautycounter tasked its lab of researchers with concocting something new that could safely and effectively fill the void. Flash forward many failed Frankensteins and lab tests later, and Beautycounter found success with a new retinol dupe it's calling the Retinatural Complex. Beautycounter credits the Complex with keeping skin plump and hydrated, increasing the feeling of firmness, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, boosting the skin's barrier function, improving texture and tone, and protecting against oxidative damage which can cause chronic diseases.
Countertime products come in good-looking glass containers rather than plastic to cut the line's greenhouse gas footprint by an estimated 38%. Beautycounter
The Retinatural Complex leans on two under-the-radar anti-aging plant essences: Bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine Rose.
Bakuchiol is a vegan, non-irritating retinol alternative, as explained by Allure in 2018. But, before then, it was used in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic skin-care remedies for centuries. Like retinol, clinical testing shows it increases cell turnover by stimulating collagen and diminishing skin concerns associated with aging like fine lines, wrinkles, photodamage, and skin laxity — all without the potentially harmful or irritating side-effects. 
Swiss Alpine Rose, on the other hand, grows at the highest altitudes of the Swiss Alps, and it's best-known for an uncanny ability to protect itself against environmental stressors and dehydration.

Data from an FDA study indicate that retinoid ingredients may speed the development of skin tumors and lesions on sun-exposed skin. FDA, Norwegian and German health agencies have raised a concern that daily skin application of vitamin A creams may contribute to excessive vitamin A intake for pregnant women and other populations.” In other words, retinol and its derivatives may be a skin irritant and could make you skin more sensitive to the sun.

Because of retinol’s safety concerns, Beautycounter made their own blend of ingredients that are just as powerful as retinol, but safer. Meet Retinatural, a complex of bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine rose (Rhododendron ferrugineum), which is contained in every Countertime product.

Retinatural is as Powerful as Retinol
Retinatural is not only safer, but just as effective as retinol. A study in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science found that despite the fact that bakuchiol is not like retinol structurally, it can mimic and even exceed the benefits of retinol for anti-aging. The conclusion of this study stated “Based on these data, we propose that bakuchiol can function as an anti‐ageing compound through retinol‐like regulation of gene expression.”

-you want to brighten up dull skin, improving evenness of skin and minimizing pore size
-you have combination skin (some dry, some oily)


A Bit about Beautycounter

If you aren’t familiar with Beautycounter, it’s more than just skincare and cosmetics, but a movement for safe products. They have banned over 1,800 chemicals commonly used in American cosmetics in their products and implement the highest standard for quality and regulation. The company is pushing for new legislation to update cosmetics regulations that havent been changed since the 1920’s!
Many common ingredients are actually toxic- linked to cancer, infertility and other issues. Beautycounter believes that beauty should be good for you, and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice health for high performing products.

Countermatch Line

“Our Countermatch Collection is formulated to match the natural structure of the skin and deliver long-lasting moisture—for an everyday glow.
This line is geared for normal to combo skin types who are looking for healthy hydration, smooth texture, radiance and age prevention.
***This line is best for those who are just starting to show signs of aging. If you are already advanced in aging or are very dry, then the Countertime Collection may be a better option for you.

Similar to the Adaptive Moisturizer, this formula is lightweight, but a powerful hydrator. In addition to hydration, this cream also reduces fine lines, makes your eyes appear more awake, less puffy and reduces shadows.

Face oils

Which face oil is best for you!

Which Beautycounter Face Oil Is Right For you!!

No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil

This product is ideal for all skin types and those who have concerns with dull and uneven skin tone.
This will help to boost moisture while improving the look of fine lines, and dull skin. Vitamin C helps to brighten skin naturally while avocado oil helps for intense moisture. Avocado oil is rich in vitamins B, D and E. Lastly, black currant oil is rich in omegas which helps to improve the radiance of the skin.

No. 2 Plumping Facial Oil

The No. 2 oil: is great for all skin types who are concerned with dry skin, loss of elasticity and fine lines.
This oil will help to firm and plump your skin while helping to improve the skin’s elasticity. It will also help with hydration immediately, but also long-lasting as you continue to use this product. Instantly notice a radiant glow when you use the no. 2 face oil.

Argan Oil is a MAJOR oil for anti-aging and reducing the appearance of fine lines. It also boosts hydration making it a powerhouse oil.

Jasmine oil helps to also boost hydration and gives its signature floral scent. Lastly, Rose Hip oil is a powerful antioxidant and fatty acid which makes it useful for scars and fine lines. This helps to keep cell walls strong so that they don’t lose moisture. People have claimed that this oil can also help to treat old acne scars!

No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil

The last oil is best for all skin types who have concerns with skin clarity, calming and balancing. If you’re oily, this can be the ideal oil to try out of the three.
If you’re oily, Ylang Ylang is one of the main ingredients in this facial oil which can help to regulate oil production while still being hydrating. 

The no. 3 oil: also has a delicate herbal scent that gives this facial oil its signature smell. Wild chamomile helps to calm and soothe skin, while Rose Hip oil as we learned earlier, helps to keep cell walls strong and can reduce the look of scars and fine lines. Marula oil also helps to improve skin texture which helps to round out this No. 3 balancing facial oil.

How To Use Beautycounter Face

These oils  are to be used you cleanse your skin and before you apply a moisturizer. You likely won’t want to add a moisturizer on top of this unless you’re adding an SPF or are just insanely dry. I recommend trying the oils to see how they change your skin texture and moisture as you may find you won’t need a moisturizer anymore. Especially at night!
Ideally, double cleanse and tone and then apply 4-6 drops of your oil to your fingertips and then PRESS it into your skin. All three should absorb fairly quickly into your skin. Be sure to let it absorb before applying more products afterward. So brush your teeth, floss, do something else while this soaks in.

Face oil is only for people with dry skin. 

Not true. While it’s great for people with dry skin, it’s also great for people with oily skin. If you have oily skin, your glands are overproducing oil because they feel like they have to. Jojoba, rose, and grape seed oil can actually help regulate this problem. In time, balancing out your skin to stop the overproduction. It can help clear your pores of excess sebum, reducing inflammation and irritation.


 People associate oil with oily skin and therefore, with breakouts. Also a myth. Naturally derived face oils don’t give you acne, synthetic oils do. That’s a huge part of why I always use beautycounter products. With a mission to create safe personal care products.they’re the only brand has vetted every single ingredient to make sure it’s not doing any harm to me or to the environment. If you think drugstore or Sephora products can guarantee you that, think again. Some may, but read the labels

Skin twin foundation

Breathable Foundation


Makeup, and especially foundation, is to me an important switch to make, and the biggest reason is because of the fact that your foundation actually sits on your face pretty much all day. Which means there’s more time for those products and ingredients to be absorbed into your bloodstream....

Conventional foundations often contain emollients and emulsifiers known as polyethylene glycols (PEGs) that may be contaminated with known carcinogens. Not to mention if you’re looking at foundation products with SPF in them, you’re also  potentially absorbing harmful chemical sunscreens, or nano particles along with things like PEGs.

In our foundation products, we achieve safer status by using non-nano zinc oxide as our mineral sunscreen agent (an effective mineral that has not been found to be harmful to the ocean ecosystem).

We also avoid chemical sunscreens linked to hormone disruption, and avoid nano particles which are extremely small, understudied particles. In our foundations, we use a safer combination of plant-derived skin conditioners and emulsifiers, rather than PEGs, to create a flawless look.
Each batch of color cosmetics are also tested for heavy metals to ensure it meets our strict safety measures.

Heavy metals are not widely tested for in the cosmetic industry as of right now, but they pose serious health concerns. They’re typically UNINTENDED contaminants that unknowingly attach themselves to the intended materials being sourced. Many “natural” cosmetic companies will claim their products as safe, but fail to test the heavy metal levels in their products, therefore they may unwittingly be selling a potentially unsafe product to the marketplace.

We are highly selective also when it comes to what pigments we will use. Even though the U.S. currently allows 65 colorants to be used in cosmetics, we prohibit a vast majority of them due to safety, and stick with the 18 that we believe are safer.


Hyaluronic Acid

First, let’s talk about its anti-aging perks. It contains Hyaluronic Acid, a popular anti-aging ingredients and a moisture magnet that’s often used in skincare. It helps skin glow and appear plumper, both immediately and even more with continued use. Both Beautycounter foundations (Skin Twin and Tint Skin) contain hyaluronic acid, but Skin Twin has 10x more.

Jojoba Esters

These are derived from the desert-dwelling jojoba plant and helps moisturize, soothe and soften skin.

Hydrophobic Pigments

These pigments provide long-wearing, buildable, second-skin coverage. These type of pigments are what help make it feel and look so natural!

Safer Ingredients

Skin Twin does not contain mineral oils, cyclic silicones, or synthetic film formers, all of which are common in foundations and may be linked to harmful effects to human health. You can read more about Beautycounter’s “Never List” here and use it to check your current foundation.

Safer for the environment:

Another thing I love is that that this foundation comes in a glass bottle. Glass has a higher recovery rate, creating a better chance your empty bottle will be recycled into a new product in the future. Moving Skin Twin into glass (vs. Tint Skin’s non-recyclable tube) will avoid an estimated 235k plastic tubes from entering landfills and waterways in just one year. And since the new glass bottle is sourced from North America, the packaging travels an estimated 5,000 fewer miles to get filled.

Beautycounter Skin Twin Colors:

Another benefit of Skin Twin is the shade range. Skin Twin has 18 shades! Your sure to find your perfect match!

My review:

I was never much of a liquid foundation user but I absolutely love this foundation!

✅ It's not cakey or thick

✅ It's lightweight

✅ It gives flawless coverage

✅ It's not oily

✅ Powerful skin care benefits that can actually help breakout prone skin

✅ Buildable

How to use:

To use it, you’ll just add 1-2 pumps to the palm of your hand and then use your fingertips, a foundation brush or damp beauty blender to blend it into skin. Continue to apply until you have the coverage you want. I usually need just 2 pumps and then maybe a little extra around my eyes! Be sure to shake well before you use it.

I know switching to safer products is an investment

Because we don’t use toxic fillers/preservatives in our products, they are HIGHLY concentrated. This means that a little goes a very long way!

Trust me when I say: less is more. In fact, I’ve found that I spend LESS using Beautycounter products because I’m getting results by using these smaller, recommended portions (and I even use less than some of the pictured portions), whereas I used to have to use a ton of product—which I now know were full of junk—to even come close to seeing some sort of positive result. I was overcompensating for something then...and I get that now.

Just wanted to share this as some of you are new to Beautycounter. You truly get what you pay for here, plus...don’t forget that you’re ultimately investing in your HEALTH when switching to safer! Worth it. And I mean...we’ve got discounts + deals, a payment plan option, plus an amazing perks program! Even more worth it!

Also, I’m not sure about you all but I can admit that it’s always been easier for me to invest in nice things like a laptop or a better iPhone or toys or nice clothes for the kids but totally forget that I should really also put the same kind of investment into my SKIN. I mean think about it: your FACE is the first thing people see and it’s what they remember. That really motivated me to INVEST in clean products and make it more of a priority.

Dew tinted moisturizer

The best summer makeup product

dew tinted moisturizer

I was initially attracted to this product for two reasons: the name (“dewy skin” is so literal that it’s enticing) and a big, beautiful, red stamp of approval from Allure. It’s also SPF 20, and uses black currant, peony-flower root extract, and vitamin C to “enhance skin brightness and sodium hyaluronate to promote firmer, smoother-looking skin

Many tinted moisturizers  are slippery and runny on purpose, to help users blend them in with ease. But when you pump out Dew Skin, it feels fairly dense and thick. My first thought was that it would surely go on cakey. So then, how is it going to give me the ultradewy, sheer coverage I was promised? My doubt vanished. This product does not make your skin feel icky or pore-cloggy. It actually makes your skin feel nourished, and alive.

Two pumps of this tinted moisturizer made my skin look like I was the most well-rested, radiant girl in the world. It gave me the kind of hydrating glow I’ve only ever really seen after walking out of an expensive facial

Here’s how I use Dew Skin: After I’ve finishing my skin care and lathered my face with moisturizer, I use my fingers to distribute two pumps evenly across my face. Sometimes, I’ll take a third pump and dab underneath my eyes with my ring finger, to give a really soft, light under-eye coverage

I should note: This is very light coverage, and it’s not going to cover up a blemishes. After you put it on, you can do some pinpoint concealing, or completely color-correct your under eyes. But it will give your skin a natural-looking wash of color, making you look — yes — super dewy.

Lip care

Lead in lipstick? Millions of women put on lipstick every day without ever considering whether dangerous chemicals lurk inside the tube.
Research by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found lead and other toxic metals in a surprising number of lipsticks.
A Poison Kiss and Other Research
Lead in lipstick was presumed an urban legend until 2007, when the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics released the report A Poison Kiss, with the results from an independent laboratory that tested 33 popular brands of lipsticks for lead content.
Our findings:

61 percent of lipsticks contained lead, with levels ranging up to 0.65 parts per million.

Lead-contaminated brands included L’Oreal, Cover Girl and even a $24 tube of Dior Addict.

FDA’s Reaction
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration promised it would conduct an investigation, but dragged its feet. It took nearly two years, pressure from consumers and a letter from three U.S. Senators, but in 2009 the FDA released a follow-up study that found lead in all samples of lipstick tested, at levels ranging from 0.09 to 3.06 ppm – levels four times higher than those found in the Campaign study. The FDA found the highest lead levels in lipsticks made by three manufacturers: Procter & Gamble (Cover Girl brand), L’Oreal (L’Oreal, Body Shop and Maybelline brands) and Revlon.
So far, the FDA has failed to take action to protect consumers.
An expanded FDA study in 2010 found lead in 400 lipsticks at levels up to 7.19 ppm. Five of the 10 most lead-contaminated brands in the FDA study are made by L’Oreal USA. See the brands FDA tested here.
No Safe Dose 
The recent science indicates there is no safe level of lead exposure. Lead is a neurotoxin and can be dangerous at small doses. Medical experts are clear that any level of lead exposure is unhealthy.
Health Concerns
Exposure to lead has been linked to a host of health concerns:

Neurotoxicity: It has been linked to learning, language and behavioral problems.

Reduced fertility in both men and women

Hormonal changes and menstrual irregularities

Delayed onset of puberty in girls and development of testes in boys.

Other Toxic Ingredients in Lipstick
Lead is not the only concern in lipsticks. A study by University of California researchers found nine toxic heavy metals, including chromium, cadmium, aluminum, manganese, and lead in testing of 24 lip glosses and eight lipsticks.
Cumulative and long-term exposure
The cosmetics industry has ignored the findings of toxic metals in lipsticks, arguing that it’s not a source of concern because the dose is so low per application. That is essentially the argument made by the FDA as well.
But, what both the industry and FDA are ignoring is the issue of cumulative exposure; that is, exposure to a little bit of a toxic chemical over a long period of time can add up to harm. A chemical like lead builds up in the body over time so low exposures repeated daily can add up to a significant exposure.
For example, in the University of California study, researchers found women applied lipstick from two to 14 times every day. In terms of chemical exposure, that translates into ingesting or absorbing as much as 87 milligrams of product a day.
Now consider that exposure over the course of a lifetime of applying lipstick; that’s a significant level of lead to ingest, particularly given the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation that people avoid all sources of lead exposure, including lead-containing cosmetics.

Sun screen

Protect your skin from the sun

Sun screen


Chemical sunscreens is a combination of chemicals like oxybenzone, octinoxate (octylmethoxycinnamate), homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and avobenzone, many of which are endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors are scary because they’re most harmful in small doses, as they mimic the hormones that our bodies create daily and can interfere with everything from our reproductive systems to our metabolism. They’re particularly bad for young ones whose systems are rapidly developing.


Active Ingredients:  mineral sunscreens will list zinc and/or titanium dioxide only. Be wary of the term “mineral-based,” which often means zinc and/or titanium dioxide has been mixed with chemical sunscreens.

Water-Resistance: A sunscreen can claim to be water-resistant only if it has undergone a forty- or eighty-minute test. If water-resistance is not stated clearly on the label, most likely the sunscreen will wash or sweat off.
Broad-Spectrum: This is important, as it means that the sunscreen blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Even if the active ingredients are mineral, make sure that the formula is not otherwise loaded with toxic ingredients. Red flags include anything ending in -paraben, pthalates, sodium laureth sulfate, and fragrance.

Our sunscreen COUNTERSUN is mineral based and formulated with non-nano zinc oxide which sits on top of the skin and bounces/reflects the sun’s rays. They are safe for the entire family!

The majority of the sunscreens on the market are chemical sunscreens. They contain SPF filters such as oxybenzone and octinoxate which absorb and scatter the sun’s rays and contribute to the collapse of coral reefs

For a sunscreen to be effective, it must have a broad spectrum claim meaning it protects against both UVA (aging rays) and UVB (burning rays). Good news, countersun blocks both.

The bad news: not all mineral sunscreens are created equal. Many mineral sunscreens on the market contain PEGs, mineral oils, synthetic fragrance, and cyclic silicones.

Check your labels

Remember, sunscreens are water resistant and not waterproof. For a sunscreen to be effective you must reapply every 2 hours. Hats and rash guards are also a good idea for those hot beach or pool days.

One final thought, don’t forget to protect your face. Wear Daily Sheer Defense for the Face over your moisturizer or a tinted moisturizer like our Dew Skin even on cloudy days. Up to 80% of the sun’s rays can sneak through the clouds.

Beautycounter’s sunscreen:

A hydrating, lightweight zinc oxide formula that works for everyone, from babies and sensitive-skin-sufferers to outdoor-sports enthusiasts. The broad-spectrum water-resistant formula protects against UVA, UVB, and blue light, and it’s infused with antioxidants and aloe vera. It sinks beautifully into skin and smells faintly of tangerine and lemon.

☀️A higher SPF does NOT equal better. SPF of 70 is NOT better than an SPF of 30!

The difference between an SPF of 30, 50 and 100 is very small.


.☀️SPF 30*** blocks 97% of UVB rays

☀️SPF 50*** blocks 98% of UVB rays

☀️SPF 100*** blocks 99% of UVB rays

.Essentially, *higher SPF = MORE* harmful sun filtering chemicals ( endocrine disrupters and chemicals that actually interact with UV rays and form free radicals in the body).

The ingredients in a sunscreen targeted at UVA and UVB rays don’t harmonize well together so when you increase chemicals in a sunscreen to target UVB rays, you’re really losing the protection with the UVA rays ——- SPF 30 is just right!

Let’s chat about the sun’s rays: UVA vs UVB

When speaking about sun damage there are two to watch out for.

👵UVA = Aging Rays
Present all year round. Penetrates glass and clouds and deeper into the skin to cause free-radical damage that contribute to premature aging.

🔥UVB = Burning Rays
Are the primary causes of sunburn, easier to recognize as we can see and feel the damage as it occurs.

Why you want a broad spectrum sunscreen? An effective sunscreen must be Broad Spectrum (provides protection from both UVA and UVB rays). The Broad Spectrum protection claim ensures that the sunscreen provides defense against both sunburn and premature skin aging.

Did you know the difference between UVA/UVB?

Body oil

You need this body oil!

I’m a big fan of Beautycounter Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary.  Not only does it smell amazing, but it contains a whopping 13 botanical oils.  Let’s just take a minute to marvel at that. It has a refreshing, uplifting citrus smell.  I’m not a big fan of rosemary in general but I do love the smell of this body oil.  Aside from it being from Beautycounter, where I know it has been super tested for toxins and screened vigorously for harmful ingredients, what I am most impressed by is the sheer number of beauty benefits that I can get from these oils.

Some of us do use mascara daily, and it can flake off and migrate into your eyes and onto the skin under your eyes, where ingredients can be absorbed into the body. And a lot of conventional mascara have concerning ingredients, such as:

Coal tar dyes are just some the harmful ingredients in mascara that you will want to avoid. These dyes contain heavy metals and are carcinogenic. Although you only put the mascara on your eyelashes, some of the harmful ingredients can still be absorbed into your bloodstream. To avoid coal tar dyes, look at the label for FD & C Blue no. 1. Also, you may find them listed as five digit number that is preceded by a Cl. While looking for these ingredients in the ingredient list may seem tedious, it will help you avoid these harmful dyes.

Retinyl acetate (aka vitamin A acetate) is a synthetic form of vitamin A that is used as a moisturizing ingredient (or “skin conditioner”) in some mascaras. EWG gives it a whopping 9 on their hazard scale. The FDA classifies retinyl acetate as a “known reproductive toxicant”; it’s also a possible carcinogen.

Parabens are a family of preservatives that are found everywhere, although many companies are now making paraben-free products. Parabens mimic estrogen and are implicated in breast cancer. No causal relationship has been proven, but because we’re exposed to parabens from many products, I recommend avoiding them wherever you can—including in mascara.

Diazolidinyl urea is a formaldehyde-releasing preservative with an EWG score of 6. In addition to the fact that formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, exposure to formadehyde-releasers can cause people to develop allergies to those ingredients and formaldehyde in general. Another formaldehyde releaser to watch out for in mascara is imidazolidinyl urea.

Propylene glycol is a skin conditioner known to be allergenic and potentially toxic to non-reproductive organs. As a penetration-enhancer, it can make the skin vulnerable to other harmful ingredients.

Triethanolamine is used in some mascaras as a pH adjuster and emulsifier. It’s considered a skin toxicant or allergen, may be harmful to non-reproductive organs, and can be contaminated with nitrosamines.

Be suspicious when you see fragrance or “parfum” listed on a any label, including mascara. Many nasty chemicals can hide under that umbrella, including phthalates, which are hormone disrupters and possible carcinogens.

Beautycounter’s think big All in one Mascara!!!

This obsessively clean mascara achieves ultimate lift, length, and volume—without potentially harmful ingredients—and supports stronger lashes, thanks to intensely nourishing tripeptide technology. Its soft, molded brush makes application effortless, so you can easily define lashes from roots to ends with rich, smudge-proof color. Go ahead, think big.


Clean and effective: The carbon black-free formula delivers bold color and instant volume, lift, and fullness.

Lash-care conditioners: Tripeptide technology strengthens for stronger, longer, and fuller-looking lashes.

Precise, effortless application: A soft, molded brush dispenses the perfect amount of formula and defines each lash from root to tip with ease.

Featured Ingredients:

Tripeptide technology: A blend of lash-care conditioners helps lashes appear longer, fuller, and stronger.

Panthenol (provitamin B5): Nourishes and conditions lashes, while biotinyl-tripeptide helps support stronger, healthier-looking lashes.

Rice bran, calendula, and carnauba waxes: Help to build creamy volume with a weightless feel.

True black pigment: Gives lashes dramatically rich black color without the use of carbon black, which we prohibit as a potential carcinogen and organ system toxin.


Acne prone skin is NO problem with this skincare line!

The countercontrol line  is formulated to treat oily and blemish-prone skin and reduce the appearance of pores. Beautycounter uses their own SkinBalance Complex in this line, which is formulated with wintergreen and rosebay willow to mattify skin and deep clean pores without leaving your skin red and irritated. After 4 weeks of using the Countercontrol line, consumers reported clearer, healthier skin, improved skin clarity, and less redness.

Step 1: Cleanse — Countercontrol clear pore cleanser: exfoliating cleanser is one of my favorite Beautycounter cleansers. Along with the SkinBalance Complex, this cleanser also contains aloe vera to soothe skin and jojoba beads to gently exfoliate away dead skin cells.

Step 2: Prep — Countercontrol instant matte toner: This toner removes excess residue, reduces the appearance of pores, and leaves skin with an overall matte complexion.

Step 3: Countercontrol all over acne treatment: This daily acne treatment can be used over your whole face and contains salicylic acid to reduce blemishes.

Step 3: Treat —Countercontrol sos acne spot treatment:This is my go-to spot corrector when the rogue blemish pops up. The lightweight gel contains maximum-strength salicylic acid to treat a breakout without drying out the skin.

Step 4: Protect — Countercontrol matte effect gel cream: This is a lightweight oil-free, non-greasy moisturizer that can mattify skin for up to 8 hours without clogging pores.
