One of my favorite things about living a greener life is connecting with like-minded people and finding new products on this journey. It’s really hard to just stop what you thought was normal and completely change your lifestyle, and you can’t perfect it overnight. However, I am so thankful that I made that change a little over four years ago. Since then I have changed the way I eat, exercise, and what chemicals I allow in my household and on my family’s bodies. I highly suggest downloading the Healthy Living app on your phone and plugging in all of the products and foods that you eat! It’s a real eye-opener when you start realizing that you aren’t as safe as you thought you were, and you are the one that is putting yourself in danger by the products that you use. Over the last almost three years, I started using Beautycounter products. Little by little I have switched my beauty and body products over to Beautycounter, and I am so happy with the change! In early December of last year I became a consultant, and ever since, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the products and how they work.
I have talked about Beautycounter products before on my blog and you can read more about them here, here and here. Today, I wanted to share four of my ‘must-have’ Beautycounter products! I am so in love with these particular products and they have become a must in my daily routine.
The first product that I cannot go without is the Every Night PM Hydrating Cream. This product hydrates your skin while you sleep. It contains Aloe, Organic Coconut Oil, Geranium Extract, Green Tea Extract and Lavender Extract. Every Night PM Hydrating Cream works well with all skin types. I was curious how my face would react to the coconut oil. I have a high sensitivity to coconut oil. It never irritated my skin!
The next Beautycounter product that I consider a ‘must-have’ are the Enlightening Treatment Pads. These are non-abrasive, and I wasn’t sure the pads would do anything since most exfoliating pads are modeled after Brillo pads. However, my skin does look more even and bright! After using, my skin felt a little tight but then dried into a soft, non-sticky matte finish, so there are definitely products at work on the pad. I have even had a few girlfriends comment that my skin looks brighter (having your friends notice is truly the best test!).
For my hair, I LOVE the Sea Salt Spray by Beautycounter! This incredibly volumizing, lightweight, and long lasting spray will give your hair touchable texture without drying it out. This styling formula is infused with Himalayan pink salt, red algae extract, and clay which can create those beachy waves. Hair sprays often contain hormone-disrupting phthalates in their synthetic fragrances. as well as polyethylene glycols (PEGs) that may be contaminated with measurable amounts of carcinogens and dioxane. Every ingredient in Beautycounter’s products represent a higher standard of safety in skincare and cosmetics.
My last ‘must-have’ Beautycounter product is the Mattify Skin Finishing Powder! The Mattify Skin Finishing Powder is a lightweight, translucent powder that blends invisibly to absorb shine, reduce the appearance of pores and fine lines, and set makeup. Unlike a powder foundation, it’s designed to be worn over your foundation, tinted moisturizer, concealer, or bare skin. In one universal shade that suits all skin tones, the Finishing Powder gives skin a naturally smooth and even finish, leaving behind no white residue.
I hope that at least one of these products has jumped out at you to try! I would love to share more of my Beautycounter knowledge with you and help you understand why it is so important to use products formulated for your health and beauty. Together, we can change the way we live and lead healthier lifestyles for ourselves and our future generations.
