This year, I made a New Year’s resolution to take better care of my skin. I wasn’t really sure where to start, because I had been using the same over the counter moisturizer since college. I found there were some products that sounded good but they were really expensive. I also didn’t want a line that was packed with chemicals and bad ingredients, not only for my own sake, but also for the baby. When I hold Tommy, his head and face are always right near mine (in addition to wanting to kiss his cheeks all day long!). Then, mid- January I got an email from one of my best friends, Kaylin, saying she was starting to sell Beautycounter products. She included a video and stats on the products, explaining how safe they are. I headed to the site and I was pleasantly surprised at the prices. I decided I wanted to try them. I told her what I was looking for and she suggested some products to try. Now I am hooked. Their products make my skin feel and look so much better. Typically my skin gets very dry in the winter, but with the Beautycounter products, I saw a big change.
I started with:
Routine Clean Cleanser: I use this as my face wash now. At $24 it’s about double what I was buying over the counter, but because a little bit goes a long way, it’s lasted more than double the amount of time.
Enlightening Treatment Pads: Love these! They make your skin feel so clean and refreshed.
Everyday AM Hydrating Cream: I do not like moisturizer that feel heavy or greasy, and this one definitely does not. It also smells great.
I just tried the one of the Lustro Face Oils, and that’s going to be my next purchase from the line.
I was so pleased with the Beautycounter products I bought for myself, I decided to try the kids’ line too. Like my products, a little bit goes a long way. These may seem to cost more than what you normally buy for your kids, but they last a lot longer. I’d say I use less than half the normal amount of shampoo on the girls. The products smell wonderful and best of all they are SAFE! Kidscounter products use mild cleansing agents and essential oils instead of harsh surfactants such as SLS or SLES and synthetic fragrance. Unlike so many kids’ bath products out there, Kidscounter does not contain any ingredients that have been linked to health harm. They are also nut and gluten free.
Here’s a little more about Beautycounter:
Beautycounter makes personal care products which are free from harmful chemicals.
- The US has not passed a Federal Law regulating the ingredients in our beauty products in 75 years! There are thousands of ingredients proven to be harmful that are still allowed in the products developed here.
- The U.S. only bans 11 toxic chemicals while The European Union bans 1,300. Beautycounter bans nearly 1,500.
- There are 12,000 ingredients used in all personal care products, 80% have NEVER been tested on human health.
- 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women in the US will be diagnosed with cancer in their lives. Of these only 10% has a genetic link to the disease.
- The average American puts between 12-20 products on his/her body every single day. It’s not about one chemical but about the hundreds of chemicals adding up in your system day after day, year after year, decade after decade.
- Our skin is our largest organ, absorbing over 60% of what you put on it.
Beautycounter products are effective and designed with the idea that you don’t have to compromise your health by putting toxic chemicals on your skin to get results. For moms, it’s great to know that they are safe for pregnant and nursing women.
I highly recommend these products.
