Learning About Clean Beauty Over Masks + Mimosas

Did you know that there are over 1,400 chemicals banned or restricted in personal care products by the European Union?

The United States has only partially banned 30 chemicals from our personal care products and has not passed a law since 1938.

Yeah…I know…..crazy, right?!

So of course I jumped on the opportunity to host a Beautycounter event at my house for my friend Cassie who recently started selling these fantastic products.

Armed with Quiche Lorraine, fresh fruit, mimosas, and skin care I invited a few of my best girls over to relax and try some products out. Luckily, Brooke, Danielle, and Judy are super adventurous and are always down to learn about cleaner options. I mean just look at these interesting facts below. And I know many of you wanted to come to my party but couldn’t or realized it after the fact so I wanted to write this quick blog today so you could learn a bit too and shop. Cassie will take good care of you!

Beauty should be good for us! And if you are anything like me, well I want good-for-me products but I also still want beautiful luxe packaging and branding and Beautycounter just nails it!

My current Beautycounter favorites (will update this regularly!)

No. 1 Balancing Facial Oil: The Balancing Collection was the first group of Beautycounter products I tried yesterday and this product in particular stood out to me. This citrus-scented facial oil quickly absorbs and penetrates to awaken and replenish skin. Lightweight and silky smooth, it features a proprietary blend of seven natural oils.

Overnight Resurfacing Peel- Goodnight, dullness. Good morning, glow. Formulated with 15 botanically-derived acids, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots without irritation or over-drying. Glycolic, lactic, and malic acids clear away dull surface skin cells, while hyaluronic acid and essential fatty acids soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.

Balancing Facial Mask: This mask is amazing! I love the slightly minty smell, the way the mask hardened without pulling on my skin, and how clean and refreshed my face felt afterwards. If you’re already cleansing and moisturizing, but are looking for a product to kick your skincare up a notch, this (or the full Balancing Set/Spa Set) might be a perfect fit.

Plumping Facial Mist- Spray on and plump up. Active-infused and alcohol-free, this revitalizing mist preps skin, sets makeup, and refreshes throughout the day. Replenishing peony root helps plump skin, while rye seed minimizes the appearance of fine lines. Perfect for all skin types, especially those concerned with dryness, loss of elasticity, and fine lines.

Hand Cream in Citrus Mimosa- This lightweight moisturizing cream hydrates and softens hands with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, organic sunflower oil, vitamin E, aloe, calendula, and chamomile. It massages on smoothly, absorbs quickly, and leaves a subtle, refreshing citrus scent.

Tint Skin Foundation: I’m super picky about foundation (who isn’t?) and was pleasantly impressed by this one. A lightweight, creamy foundation that actually cares for your skin, this formula goes on seamlessly and blends effortlessly to cover imperfections and visually even out skin tone. Buildable and natural-looking, it leaves you in control of the coverage: For light coverage, apply with the Retractable Foundation Brush; for medium coverage, apply with the Flat Complexion Brush. It comes in 10 flexible shades, each of which is formulated to suit a range of skin tones. (So you don’t necessarily have to change shades as the seasons change.) It also includes sodium hyaluronate, a natural moisture magnet, to promote smoother-looking skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Touchup Concealer Pen- Dark circles, redness, and other imperfections are no match for this buildable, medium-coverage concealer. In addition to providing flawless coverage, it’s formulated with knotgrass extract to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and photoaging—so skin looks firmer, brighter, and instantly more even. The click-pen design and brush applicator make it easy to apply just the right amount exactly where you need it.

Red Color Intense Lipstick- In celebration of their 6th Anniversary, they are proud to offer a bold lipstick that embodies the mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. Perfect for all skin tones, this safer formula delivers vibrant red color and a satin finish with a touch of fresh peppermint flavor. Who doesn’t need a perfect red lippy?!!

Cassie is offering a special today! When you make a $100 or more purchase you get $10 back from her! You will not regret it. I am such a fan ya’ll.
