My 10 Beautycounter Faves (while there’s 20% off for new customers!)

Beautycounter has been my go to for 2 years now.  Initially I placed an order feeling totally overwhelmed by cleaner makeup options but knowing I cared, anyone else?!

I was so thankful to find a company that looked like were pushing forward in the things I cared about: being a company led by values not just profits but for social change and industry overhaul, cleaner and safer well sourced ingredients with a skin tone range to be available to everyone, care for the planet and people in the creation process, but also creating products that actually worked and were high quality. All in one place.

Over the last 2 years I’ve come to love a lot more than the 3 things I started with, and really seen a bit more inside the company (I’m in the top 1% of their affiliates/consultants because you all shop so much so I get a bit more of an inside look!) and I’m only more and more impressed by the business, stringency in ingredients and sourcing, and the way they work.

So while there’s 20% off for new customers here are my top choices for what I’d choose!

HOW TO GET 20% OFF

Just go to Beautycounter, fill your cart and use the code CLEANFORALL20 to get 20% off all individual items (it doesn’t include bundles and sets as they already have a discount always!

You can also get a free peel and mask on me if your order is over $100, getting commission I love to use it to get a little more for their money and this is on way I can. See my note at the bottom!

MY FAVES

Countertime Items – This is my go to day and night skincare. It’s their line for maturing skin, for helping with fine lines and wrinkles and giving extra hydration as skin tends to dry as we get older. I LOVE it, especially the eye cream. It all has a safer retinol alternative “bakuchiol” and I can really tell the difference in my skin when I use it day and night and when I don’t!

 

Countertime Eye Renewal Cream – This is in the collection but it has to be a fave on it’s own cos so many people just buy this one. It lasts me 7+ months and what I really notice is how it changes the colour and tone of my under eye area. I’m a religious user morning and night! (plus the oil cleanse makeup remover is my go to when my kids cover themselves in things that won’t come off their skin!)

Overnight Resurfacing Peel – It’s probably everyone’s favourite skincare product, it doesn’t actually peel off, it’s a gentle but super effective mix of peeling acids and soothing acids. I first bought it deep in to colic land with Roey when I just couldn’t get my skin to look vibrant and not grey. People also choose it a lot for helping with sun spots or helping reduce acne scars in combo with the brightening oil and see really good results. But if you’re ordering over $100 don’t pay for this, add the band of beauty, have me pay back the cost of the band of beauty – and get this for free! Just send me your confirmation receipt after shopping. Literally no strings, it’s just a way I get to help.

Skin Twin Hydrating Foundation  – this was one of the first three things I bought and I love it. A glass bottle the lasts me about a year and it’s a light coverage (with hyaluronic acid which is produced by our bodies and I love for my skin for lots of things) but with being light it’s also buildable so it’s great multitasker for me.

Vitamin C Brightening Serum –  I use this every day, it’s 2 very stable kinds of vitamin C so it won’t degrade which can happen with vitamin C products. Vitamin C does wonders for skin stimulating collagen production. It’s also an antioxidant and can help protect skin from environmental factors, it goes on my skin most days.

Brightening OilOn the days I don’t want a 4-5 step regimen this is my go to, a vitamin C oil that really brightens my skin and moisturizes in one quick step for quick easy morning skin love when I’m going make up free.

Caramel Cream Blush – One of my newest loves as a really quick and easy multitasker. I use a swipe on my cheeks to give definition and a bit of colour, and on my eyelids and lips too. It’s brill!

Lip Intense – I’m a lipstick person. I wear it most days and these ones are all stringently tested for heavy metals (you can read all the testing, results and standards HERE if you’re like me!) I love Girls’ Night for a bright red, Little Black Dress for my perfect everyday red, B Fearless in the paper tube for an everyday pink, and Twighlight for a bolder bright pink.

Lengthening Mascara – This is the thing I had the biggest battle with finding a better option for in the clean makeup world and I LOVE this one. I’ll be honest it’s the only product I see get mixed reviews, but personally I adore it, I can sweat, cry and wear it for a day and it’s perfect. But it’s where I love the 60 day return policy. If you don’t love it you can return it no questions.

Shave Cream for Jared – They have a full Countertime Men’s line but Jared’s pretty simple in terms of products and just uses the shaving cream but we love it.

Multitasking Cleansing Balm (for the kids) – I only tried this cos I got it for free, but it’s now my go to for Roey’s dry skin, for wind chapped faces, and kid rashes. It’s a fave for people with rosacea and eczema but for me it’s a kid go to that will last the full year.

One more thing: HOW TO GET A FREE PEEL + MASK

This is my top BC tip and most people end up doing it! They have a membership program I think of like Amazon Prime because there’s no monthly commitment and no autorenew, just free shipping over $100 ($125 CAN), 10% credit on any purchase, and a free gift when you sign up. It’s $29 to join but whenever you add it to an order over $100US/CAN I always pay back the $29 as something I get to do to help with the numbers. You never actually have to shop again if you don’t want to. The freebie gift is the peel which is my number 1 skincare product for brightening my skin and keeping it not looking dull, and the charcoal mask I use for hormonal breakouts. So if you’re already shopping over $100 make sure you add that HERE and fill in your order details here to get the $29 back from me! Literally no strings, it’s just a way I get to and love to help.

I HOPE THAT HELPS!

Make sure you use the 20% off code, and let me know if you have any questions or want to know my thoughts on any product, I’ve tried tons of them now  – then make sure to add in band of beauty and get the $29 back from me to get the most for you money too!
