You guys, it’s been YEARS since I properly took care of my skin.
I went from college student who didn’t know any better and used whatever was on sale and had colorful packaging, to a nature-loving, hippie-esque 30-something who was disappointed by most natural brands and eventually just stopped using skincare and makeup in general.
And even though you could call me a bit of a tom-boy (or a lot), I’ve always liked using various skincare and makeup products.
Since I started using Beautycounter products several months ago, my girly side is definitely coming out! I’ve found myself wearing makeup more, and have been enjoying watching my skin improve with every product I try. And I’m more committed than ever to wearing (non-toxic) sun protection during long days spent outside this summer! I actually enjoy using skincare products again- ones that I feel good about using and know aren’t undermining my health… and it’s quite refreshing, because I ain’t getting any younger!
And “natural,” “non-toxic,” and “safer” talk aside, these products work REALLY well. They were developed with incredible thought and care, with every ingredient having a purpose, which I love.
Beautycounter is a phenomenal brand that you will definitely be seeing more of in the future- their mission to get safer makeup and skincare products in the hands of everyone is something I love supporting!

The new goods! Beautycounter+ is a brand new line from Beautycounter that just came out- there are three new “sets” all with a different purpose, and all containing a facial oil, mist, and mask.

No 1 Brightening
The No. 1 Brightening Collection is the one everyone is raving about the most- it is citrusy and will reawaken dull skin and boost radiance. It’s the perfect pick-me-up for the spring season and to refresh dry winter skin!
I’ve been using this collection all week and can’t believe what a radiant glow it leaves my skin with- an immediately noticeable difference! The first time I tried the mask, after washing it off I literally exclaimed out loud, “wow, look at my skin!” The people at Beautycounter really nailed this one!
No 2 Plumping
I LOVE LOVE Peonies- we have nearly a dozen Peony plants on the homestead, so when I saw that the No. 2 Plumping Collection was inspired by this flower, I knew I had to try it! It has both Peony and Jasmine extracts to help restore and firm moisture-depleted skin. It is intended to give a more youthful appearance, restoring skin’s elasticity and smoothing the appearance of fine lines. And the smell is incredible!
No 3 Balancing
The No. 3 Balancing Collection was developed to refine oily and uneven skin. This is the same charcoal mask you’ve seen from Beautycounter before, just with new packaging! This is a great set for anyone with oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.
You can get these products in several ways- all are available a la carte, or you can get each set in a larger size, or a mini size… and yes, when you purchase a set there is a discount built into it!
