{Beautycounter} Review

I’m sure many of you have already heard of Beautycounter products, but for those of you who haven’t, it’s a skin care, hair care and makeup line that focuses on using 100% clean ingredients. Their main goal is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. They formulate their products while following a NEVER LIST that includes thousands of questionable or harmful chemicals that they will never include in any of their products. Over 80% of their ingredients in their products are plant-derived, natural or organic.

I had the privilege of trying several of their skin care and hair care products for the first time this past weekend! I tried several things meant for anti-aging skin, and I think they worked great as preventative products against fine lines and wrinkles.

No 2 Plumping Facial Mask

It’s made with kaolin clay, which is meant to deep clean the pores. “Plumping peony root helps restore skin’s elasticity, while konjac root smooths the appearance of fine lines.” I was impressed with how smooth and clean my skin was after only one use. I only got to try it the one time, so I can’t say it helped the elasticity of my skin, but their site states that after 4 weeks of use, 83% of people felt their skin was more supple. It retails for $48, and I can say truly a little bit goes a long way. I think the one bottle could easily last you 6 months. I recommend this mask for anyone wanting to prevent or correct aging skin.

No 2 Plumping Facial Mist

Like the Plumping Mask, this facial mist also includes peony root, which works on plumping the skin. It’s meant to balance out your skin, and can be used as a makeup setting spray. It’s alcohol-free so it can be used to refresh your skin as many times a day as you feel like using it. It smells very light, which is important to a lot of people who can’t handle anything strong. I recommend this for any skin-type and for anyone wanting to bring more balance to their skin. It retails for $35 and can last anywhere from 3-6 months, depending on how often you’re using it.

No 2 Plumping Facial Oil

This is one product that I was skeptical about using, because I have combination skin. I figured it would benefit either someone with very dry skin, or someone with very oily skin. It actually felt very good! It’s lightweight and doesn’t just sit on the surface of your skin. It sinks in deep to moisturize without feeling too oily. It is meant to help balance out your oil production so your skin knows how much to keep producing. It is made with seven different natural oils, including jasmine for replenishing moisture and argan oil for fighting the appearance of fine lines. It retails for $68, and all you need is two small drops to cover your entire face and neck. The bottle should last you 6-9 months! I recommend this for anyone wanting to prevent or correct deep set wrinkles.

Nourishing Cream Exfoliator and Nourishing Cream Cleanser

These two products come from the same line, meant to bring nourishment and moisture to dry skin. The cream exfoliator is made with jojoba beads, which are round, so they roll on the surface to give a deep exfoliation without scratching or damaging the skin. While working it in with small round circles, sloughing off dead skin cells, at the same time it is also cleaning out clogged pores, leaving your skin radiant and clean. The cream cleanser is very gentle but is also strong enough to remove makeup, so you don’t have to use a pre-cleanser. The cleanser retails for $26 and the exfoliator retails for $34. I recommend these products for anyone with delicate skin, dry skin, or combination skin.

Lip Conditioner With Peppermint

This is my new beauty addiction!!! It feels AMAZINGGGG! It left my lips feeling softer than I’ve ever felt. Plus the peppermint brought a slight tingle, which I loved. It not only FELT good, but it LEFT MY LIPS feeling good for days afterward. It retails for $20 and will last you anywhere from 6-9 months! Use it like a lip mask maybe 2-3 times a week. It would also make a great stocking stuffer.

Daily Shampoo and Conditioner

I am convinced that this shampoo and conditioner dry hair faster than any other shampoo and conditioner I’ve ever used. They smell so good, and leave your hair very soft. I didn’t have to use ANY product in my hair after I used them. They work well at removing any buildup and keep hair clean for a long time. I was able to go 4 days after using them before having to shampoo and condition again. And I probably could have stretched it a day more. They retail for $22 a piece and should last you 6 months. They’re good for any hair type!
