BEAUTY GIVEAWAY! Beautycounter Safer Products for Busy Moms

Hi moms! I’m excited to share this skin and makeup video tutorial with you. Get ready with me! In this video, I’m using Beautycounter products. Have you heard of this brand? Some of you may have seen it in Target, it was briefly available in stores. It grabbed my attention because the company’s mission is on safer beauty and the packaging is super cute!

As a mom of two little boys and as an aesthetician, I’m always aware of chemicals and ingredients in our family’s food, skincare, and my cosmetics. It’s no secret that all of these things play a role in our overall health and wellness. So I was delighted to meet Danita Pina who is a Senior Beauty Consultant for Beautycounter to learn more. She introduced me to her 5 favorite products (and to her adorable son Dillon). She explained to me why she’s passionate about the company. I know all of us moms will agree that we have a responsibility to ourselves and our kids to make the best decisions possible for our families’  health. Safer is always better!

Decades of studies indicate that serious health issues (including but not limited to asthma, cancer, and infertility) are on the rise and are due in some part to our ongoing exposure to toxic chemicals. Beautycounter is committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what’s required by U.S. law. They’ve banned the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals through their “Never List”. Click here if you’d like to read the full list. It’s eye-opening that the The Food and Drug Administration allows the use of chemicals known to be extremely harmful in the products we put on our bodies and on our kids’ bodies every single day. (reference beautycounter.com) 

Knowledge is empowering and I was eager to try out the products Danita gave me. Safer beauty? I love it! I found that the products were very easy-to-use, multi-tasking (which is always a plus for me), and were effective! Thank you Danita for introducing me to Beautycounter.

Here’s what I tried: 

  1. Purifying Charcoal Mask  – Used to draw out toxins, reduce pore size, and increase elasticity. 
  2. Tint Skin Foundation in Linen – Ultra hydrating with sodium hyaluronate.
  3. Lengthening Mascara in Soft Black – Contains shea butter, rosemary, sunflower oil for conditioning.
  4. Eyeshadow Due in Malt / Shell – Contains porcelain flower extract which is an antioxidant to help moisturize delicate skin around the eye area.
  5. Sheer Lipstick in Currant – Can be used as a lip tint or a blush, Natural vanilla extract replaces synthetic fragrance.

      I love mascara, too! Have you ever tried a lash primer? I know it’s an extra step, but it helps to thicken & nourish lashes.

    My must have beauty product is maracuja oil and mineral sunblock! The oil has done wonders with keeping my face even toned and moisturized and sunblock is just essential for anyone who wants to have fun in the sun!

      Sunblock is essential!! You might like the Beautycounter sunscreens, they contain aloe, green tea, and blood orange extract tobmlisturize and protect skin. And YES on the oil! I’m currently in love with the Beautycounter+ brightening oil with vitamin C. Makes for smooth skin which is the canvas for any makeup you use!
