I have been enjoying these products for a few months now. The cleansing milk is wonderful to use after I use the one-step makeup remover wipes. The moisturizing lotion is great and I do use it after the shower all over my body. These are both must have products for me now. Have you tried them? Would you like to try them? Shoot me a message and I’ll get you some to try or purchase them using the button below and if you are not enjoying them after 60 days from the ship date, return the product with no hassle.

And, the Statement look comes with a Precision Liquid Liner – what?! 
Which you can also buy separately, of course. It’s amazing. I tried it and it applied amazingly and STAYED ON SO WELL – only coming off upon removal. My mom (who is 70 – sorry mom!) even tested it when she was recently here visiting and it applied beautifully for her, too. I gave her my tube since I’ve decided lately I’m into the no-liner look again, go figure.

Optimized for easy, precise application and featuring a rich matteblack formula, this liquid eyeliner is perfect for creating everything
from thin, sharp lines to thick, dramatic wings. Plus, its longwearing formula lasts up to 12 hours.

 

Want to know why Beautycounter cosmetics (and specifically the new pressed powders) are different from what’s on the market? Read on…

WHY DID WE REFORMULATE OUR POWDERS? 
We reformulated our powders to significantly increase performance but still meet our safety standards. The new powders have better payoff, which is the intensity of the color upon application, and are long-wearing. Additionally, the new powders are manufactured in the USA.

WHAT MAKES THE NEW MAKEUP POWDERS UNIQUE? 
Our powders deliver on four key criteria. We call them the ‘4 Ps’:
• PAYOFF: one-swipe full-color intensity. We select safer, artist-grade pigments that deliver rich color payoff.
• PRECISION: Our formula goes through a triple-milling process that grinds the ingredients to the most perfect, most precise particle size. The result is silky-smooth, blendable powders with even application.
• PERFORMANCE: long-wearing color. Our formula contains ‘Butterpowder,’ which is a natural binding ingredient that helps the powders attach to skin and stay on all day.
• PURITY: we screen every batch of our powders for heavy metals, to ensure we deliver higher-performing, significantly safer formulas. Additionally, all the new powder formulas are vegan, and the compacts are made with FSC-certified paper.
The eyeshadow, bronzer and highlighter compacts come with removable mirrors so that the package is recyclable and the mirror can be used separately later!

HOW ARE BEAUTYCOUNTER’S POWDERS SAFER THAN TRADITIONAL POWDERS?
We are very selective of the ingredients used in our formulations, in accordance with The Never List™. Additionally, we screen raw materials and our finished products to ensure they meet our strict safety standards. When it comes to colorants, out of the 153 cosmetic colorants allowed in the EU, and the 63 cosmetic colorants allowed in the US, Beautycounter prohibits the vast majority from being used in our products. We currently use 18 colorants in our cosmetics, 10 of which are “naturally-derived” and 8 of which are “synthetic” colorants. Through our rigorous screening and testing process, our commitment to transparent and ethical sourcing, and our proactive involvement at every step of the manufacturing process, we are able to fulfill our promise and provide you products that meet our standards of safety and performance.

WHAT IS BEAUTYCOUNTER’S PROCESS FOR SCREENING HEAVY METALS?
Heavy metals are naturally-occurring; therefore, some natural colorants carry the potential risk of heavy metal contamination. To help manage this risk, we are very selective with the colorants we use, and we test them rigorously. We test not only our pigments, but also each batch of our finished color cosmetic products to make sure they meet our stringent internal standards for safety.

DO THE NEW MAKEUP POWDERS CONTAIN TALC? 
Yes, the new Beautycounter makeup powders contain talc. Talc is a highly prevalent ingredient in makeup powders in general because it is absorbent, an anti-caking agent, and a skin protectant. We also choose talc because when compared with similar ingredients with the same cosmetic function, talc has lower heavy metal levels. The cosmetic industry standards require that cosmetic grade talc not contain any asbestos material. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) reports that talc is safe to be used in cosmetics up to 100% as long as there is no damage to the epidermal layer of the skin. Further, Beautycounter tests our raw materials to ensure that all of our products are 100% free of asbestos.

HOW DOES BEAUTYCOUNTER ENSURE THAT THE MICA WE USE IS SOURCED ETHICALLY?
We have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct that helps us engage with our suppliers, and improve practices throughout the supply chain. As part of this process, we have ensured compliance by securing documentation from our mica suppliers that they do not engage in child labor practices.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE NEW POWDER HIGHLIGHTERS AND THE CREAM OPTIONS:
The differences between these two products are the finish and the application. Illuminating Cream Highlighter delivers a dewy sheen, while Luminous Powder Highlighter delivers a powder sheen. Illuminating Cream Highlighter can be applied directly to bare skin or on top of liquid foundation, and blended with fingertips. Luminous Powder Highlighter should be applied with a brush, such as Fan Powder Brush, on bare skin or on top of Mattifying Powder.

Is The Moisturizer You’re Slathering on Your Face Regulated?

Is the moisturizer you’re slathering on your face regulated? Do you even know?

Lets say I woke up this morning and wanted to create a homemade batch of moisturizer. Lets say my friends loved it which then inspired me to make more and sell it online. I even used my super cool printer to make those awesome labels. Do you know that I could go ahead and start and there is no paperwork needed. I don’t even have to go through the rigorous FDA pre-market approval process.

Would you still want to use my homemade moisturizer?

How can there be no paperwork needed? It’s because cosmetics, which are monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have limited to no regulation that require companies of any size to comply with.

Now of course the FDA does require some labelling, but that means that some companies can easily avoid listing a product’s ingredients by claiming that by doing so would give away trade secrets. Further more, manufacturers don’t have to report health complaints to the FDA.

Now before I continue, lets me ask this again.

Would you want to use or even buy my homemade moisturizer?

Let me be honest, I know if I were in your shoes, I would probably be hesitant in buying to trying the moisturizer. Good news, I have a solution to your moisturizer needs that you can trust.

Beautycounter Cleansing Made Safer ~ Take Two

DOUBLE UP

Cleansing Made Safe

Try doubling up on your beautcounter cleansers for ultimate skin care benefits. Start with one that removes makeup and sunscreen, then follow up with another to draw out impurities from deep within pores.

Doubling up on my beautycounter cleansers is something I have been doing for some time now. On Sunday I like to give my face a good clean, really refresh my skin which helps me feel ready for  Monday and the upcoming week. On Sunday I actually clean my face using three of the cleansers. I use the beautycounter charcoal bar to clean off my makeup (this was before the One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes were available). Anyways After getting the makeup off, I then apply the Beautycounter + No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask.

You can learn more about the beautycounter masks.

The mask  helps refine and smooth my skin. It helps absorb any excess oil that may have been on my face. The beautycounter no 3. balancing facial mask detoxifies my pores, purifies my skin, helps clarify complexion and helps my mu skin look clearer and more even-toned. After the mask has been rinsed off I usually then use the Rejuvenating Face Cleanser. Again this is just on Sunday.

Other times (about twice) during the week  I use the Nourishing Cream Exfoliator and then the Nourishing Cream Cleanser. I first start with splashing my face with water, and then I use a small amount about an almond size and massage in a circular motion. I then rinse thoroughly with warm water, taking care to avoid the eye area. After I exfoliate I use the cream cleanser. Anyways there are options with it comes to pairing your cleansers.

To make it easy, here are a few more I’ve put together for you.

Nourishing Cream Cleanser + Nourishing Cream Exfoliator ~ Gentle was away the day and reveal radiant-looking skin.

Nourishing Cream Cleanser ~ Soothe and nourish skin as you wash away makeup and other impurities with this ultra-gentle daily cleanser. Lightweight yet deeply moisturizing, the creamy formula contains witch hazel to tone skin, and coconut oil and aloe to help hydrate.

Nourishing Cream Exfoliator ~This gentle yet super-effective exfoliating cleanser sweeps away impurities to uncover fresh, radiant skin. Non-abrasive jojoba beads help slough off dry skin, while organic coconut oil and aloe soothe and hydrate.

DID YOU KNOW? Korean and Japanese women have been practicing double cleansing since the 14th center. 

 

Cleansing Balm + Rejuvenating Face Cleanser ~ Treat your skin to intense hydration while you cleanse.

Cleansing Balm ~ Cleansing Balm melts into your skin to hydrate while it cleanses, removing makeup and other impurities but never stripping away moisture. With vitamin C to brighten the appearance of skin and raspberry and cranberry seed oils to hydrate, the formula can also be used as an intensely nourishing face mask. Bonus? You also get our reusable 100% muslin cloth, softer and easier on skin than a traditional washcloth.

 Rejuvenating Face Cleanser ~ Lightly lathering and sulfate-free, Rejuvenating Face Cleanser features a softening blend of fruit and berry seed oils that gently cleanse and moisturize skin. Gentle cleansing agents help remove makeup and impurities, while antioxidant-rich plant extracts such as green tea help soothe and calm skin.

 

TIP Double cleanse in the evening to get the most out of your favorite serum, night cream, or facial oil. 

One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes + Charcoal Cleansing Bar ~ This extra easy cleansing detoxifies your skin in minutes.

One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes ~ Remove makeup and cleanse your skin in one step. Using a naturally derived micellar formula, each super soft wipe traps makeup, dirt, and impurities, then gently whisks it away with no need to rinse. Aloe Vera delivers hydration, while cornflower water soothes delicate skin. Gentle enough to use on face and eyes every day. These breakthrough wipes are also biodegradable – just dispose in your home compost.

Charcoal Cleansing Bar ~ Our Charcoal Cleansing Bar detoxifies and absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. Made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.

So if you have not tried doubling up on your beautycounter cleansers, try it now. You may find it is exactly what your skin needs. I know mine needs it occasionally.

Counterman Products

Discover Counterman

The Counterman perfect shave set was an exclusive preview of the Beautycounter men’s collection coming Spring 2018, this matte-black, travel-friendly tin contains everything he needs to prep, shave, and smooth skin. Start Fresh Exfoliating Face Wash gently cleanses and exfoliates with biodegradable jojoba beads. Clean Shave Shaving Cream conditions without harsh ingredients. About Face Moisture Lotion calms and soothes. Soft Tough Beard Oil softens and conditions facial hair and helps prevent skin irritation. Set also includes.a shaving brush made with super soft animal hair-free taklon bristles.

I am looking forward to the Spring 2018 launch of Counterman. 

One of the 2017 holiday gift sets was the Counterman Perfect Shave Set. The set retailed in the US for $68 and Can $82. It included…

Start Fresh Exfoliating Face Wash 50ml / 1.7 FL OZ

Clean Shave Shaving Cream 50ml / 1.7 FL OZ

About Face Moisture Lotion 50ml / 1.7 FL OZ

Soft Tough Beard Oil 15ml / 0.5 FL OZ

My husband was fortunate enough to get a counterman shaving set for Christmas. Let me say that he is in love with the counterman products. He has even shared the counterman products with several of his buddies who have never had such an easy shave, no breakouts or irritated skin and are beyond excited for the launch of this product in the Spring of 2018.

My husband was kind enough to let me take photos as he used the counterman set for the first time for me to share with all of you. Since he started using these products he has not stopped. I know you might be thinking that these bottles are not very big, but he so far has gotten them to last over 3 months now. Similar to most beautycounter products, you don’t need a lot. I would recommend no more then the size of a dime is needed. Of course this may vary based upon the size of the face.

A little amount goes a long way

Step 1: Rinse your face with the Beautycounter Counterman Start Fresh Exfoliating Face Wash. This is my husbands number one favorite product. He has not breaker out since he began using this. Prior to using the Counterman Start Fresh Exfoliating Face Wash he would use Beautycounter Charcoal Bar. He would still occasionally break out, but since this face wash, he has had a clean face.

Step 2: using the Shaving Brush, apply the Beautycounter Counterman Clean Shave Shaving Cream.

 

I think I mentioned that you don’t need a lot. This small amount of the Counterman Clean Shave Shaving Cream worked for my husband. He did say though that he uses the brush to really lather it on his face. By using the brush the shaving cream forms that frothy white mass of bubbles that men are use to with other shaving creams.  

 

Step 3: Applying the Beautycounter Counterman About Face Moisture Lotion. this is my husbands second favorite counterman product. I never expected him to enjoy putting lotion of his face so much. I can see why he enjoys it so much, because I have got to say, feeling his face after he has shaven with the counterman products, his face is smoother then out ten month olds bottom. Or so the expression goes. Let me just say with out going going in to TMI (too much information) that his face is smooth and I LOVE it. And again you can see he is not having to use a lot.

Step 4: Using the Beautycounter Counterman Soft Tough Beard Oil. So lets be real here, I just showed you photos of my husband with a none beard face and I have gone on about how smooth his face feels after a shavings. So of course how can I share with you what he thinks about the Counterman beard oil. Well I can’t share what he thought because of the obvious he does not have a beard. However I think I mentioned he has shared these products with many of his guy friends and some of them have beards and they have shared with me that they are beyond impressed with how smooth there beard feels after using it. I guess normally these guys would use conditioner like what they use in the shower, but this beard oil from what they have said is beyond better then conditioner.  

So there you have it. The Counterman products are amazing and this was just a taste what is to come in Spring of 2018 when the Counterman line launches. I am so excited for the launch and for once me the wife won’t be the only one.

There are many ingredients allowed in beauty and skin care products that we believe should never be used: harsh sulfates, formaldehyde-releasers, arti cial fragrances, PEGs, mineral oil, and carbon black. Ready to come clean? Start by replacing six of the worst o enders. Beautycounter o ers alternatives that deliver the performance you look for with cleaner ingredients.

Order Now

1 | HIT REFRESH

Many traditional eye and face creams are made with preservatives which can potentially release formaldehyde and wreak havoc on the immune system. Formaldehyde? Now that’s an eye-opener. Countermatch Eye Rescue Cream and Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion are naturally preserved with phytic acid from green rice.

2 | NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE

Traditional facial masks can be formulated with PEGs, which are widely used in cosmetics as thickeners or solvents, that can possibly be contaminated with trace amounts of dangerous chemicals. Your masks should have nothing to hide. At Beautycounter, all our masks contain naturally-derived glycerin, which helps condition and soften skin.

3 | THE DIRT ON BODY LOTIONS

With more skin to cover, body lotions o er the most exposure to potentially toxic ingredients, like mineral oil. Permitted in beauty products, mineral oil is a conditioning agent that may be contaminated with trace amounts
of toxins and can su ocate skin. Let your skin breathe easy. Beautycounter Hydrating Body Lotion contains a moisturizing blend of marula and mongongo oils which are rich in essential fatty acids to revitalize and nourish skin.

4 | COLOR MADE SAFER

As lipstick is applied on your mouth, it’s no surprise we ingest what we put on, including arti cial fragrance. Arti cial fragrances can be a blend of ingredients that are not required to be disclosed by U.S. law and can include trace amounts of phthalates (potential endocrine disruptors). That leaves a bad taste in our mouths, too. Beautycounter Sheer Lipsticks are vibrant in color, transparent in ingredients, and scented only with
natural vanilla.

5 | EASY ON THE EYES

Carbon black, a pigment used in mascaras to create
the deep black color, has been linked to a range of adverse health e ects. Mascara shouldn’t be that scary. Beautycounter Volumizing and Lengthening Mascaras are pigmented with naturally-occurring iron oxides.

6 | GOOD HAIR DAYS START WITH SAFER INGREDIENTS

Harsh sulfates, such as SLS and SLES, are found in many shampoos and can cause skin irritation. Your scalp deserves a lot better. These Beautycounter shampoos feature PureFoam Cleansing Technology which is derived from beetroot sugars to deliver the rich lather and cleansing performance you love in a gentler way.
