Clean beauty products have been important to me since my early 20’s, but over the past year I’ve gotten really picky about the products I’m using. I am excited to share 10 of my favorite Beautycounter products with you and hopefully you’ll find a few that would be a great clean beauty swap for you, too!
What makes Beautycounter different?
Beautycounter is committed to health and safety standards that go far beyond what we legally require in the United States. They have a list of over 1,800 questionable or harmful chemicals (they call it The Never List) that they promise to never use as ingredients in their products.
This includes the over 1,400 chemicals banned or restricted in personal care products by the European Union, plus additional chemicals screened by Beautycounter and found to be of concern.
Beautycounter is proud to be the leading company to be advocating for stricter laws on beauty products and more health-protective legislation across North America. You can read about how they are advocating here.
Being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease changed my perspective on everything, and it gave me the drive to ask important questions and advocate not only for my health, but to also make sure I know what products I’m using in my home and putting on or in my body. I’m proud to not only use Beautycounter, but to also be a Beautycounter consultant and help others learn how they can make simple swaps that have the potential to make a big impact.
My 10 Favorite Beautycounter Products
- Countermatch Refresh Foaming Cleanser
In the fall of 2020 I was having a reaction to the skincare I was using and I had to figure something else out. I took the skincare quiz on the Beautycounter website and it said the best match for my skin would be the Countermatch, and they were right!
I really like the way that this cleanser works and not only does it do a good job removing my makeup and leaving my skin feeling clean, it also doesn’t leave it super dry. I actually use the entire Countermatch collection and it leaves my skin feeling really great.
If you are looking for anti-aging, check out the Countertime collection that many use and love!
2. Charcoal Facial Mask
This is the holy grail of face masks. Seriously, my all time favorite. The activated charcoal balances and purifies all while gently exfoliating and leaving your skin silky smooth and removing impurities. I also love to use this mask on my armpits if I feel like I need more detoxification there (aka… if my armpits start to stink) since I use a natural deodorant.
3. Counter+ All Bright C Serum
Think sunshine in a bottle. This one makes you glow. The All Bright C Serum is a 10% blend of two forms of vitamin C that brightens skin and helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots. It also has antioxidant-rich turmeric and camu camu extracts that will help protect your skin against new dark spots.
4. Beyond Gloss
This is the first Beautycounter product I tried, and I fell in love. I love how these glosses feel and the colors are beautiful. My favorite shade is Magnolia Shimmer.
5. Daily Shampoo
This shampoo does a great job and is simple and I feel good about it having cleaner ingredients than most shampoos on the market. This is also a great option for kids and we have it in all of our bathrooms in the house!
6. Hydrating Body Lotion
This is a great, lightweight body lotion that goes on smooth and leaves skin feeling nourished. It’s a moisturizing blend of safflower seed oil and jojoba butter
7. Counterman Energizing Charcoal Body Wash
I absolutely love this body wash for the man (& boys) in my house! Plus, we have a 10 year old who is at the age where his body is changing so having a safe and clean option for him to use is awesome. It works really well, and the fragrance is not overpowering at all. The fragrance is from essential oils and also natural materials defined by International Organization for Standardization.
8. Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel
Don’t let the name of this one scare you… your skin won’t peel and you actually don’t wash it off either. You put this on at night before bed, and wake up to baby soft skin. This product is one of the ones that people start with that get them hooked on Beautycounter! I love to do the charcoal mask and then follow with the peel once a week for a real treat for my skin!
9. Think Big All-in-One Mascara
I admit to being a mascara snob. I am super picky, always have been in regards to my lashes. Beautycounter passes the test! This is a great mascara that I really like and it leaves my lashes looking long… just the way I like them!
10. Cheeky Clean Cream Blush
I had no idea I’d like cream blush, but I do. It’s really forgiving, which also surprised me. It stays on well and gives me just a kiss of color which I appreciate. You can also add more if you prefer more color as it’s easily buildable.
I wear Chai-Dusty Rose.
