Hi, all! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now that the tryptophan has finally worn off, it’s shopping time! And whether you’re shopping for yourself or your loved ones, why not get or give the gifts of safer beauty!? How do you do this, you ask? The answer is Beautycounter!
If you haven’t heard of Beautycounter, let me quickly drop some knowledge. In a nutshell, Beautycounter provides toxin-free alternatives to your skincare, body care, hair care, and makeup routines. They’re committed to a health and safety standard that goes well beyond what is legally required in the United States.
Everything is based on The Never List™. The Never List™ is made up of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals that are never used 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. Add this to their Coalition to address the lack of US cosmetic safety laws, and you have yourself one freaking amazing mission!
And the best part is, the products work! Not just work, they work very well! So really Beautycounter is doing all the leg work for you. And you get to look smart in front of your family and friends as you’re gifting them these awesome products! Or as you’re using them yourself. Either way, it’s a win-win!

Beyond all of the beautiful Holiday Gift Sets, here are some of my all-time favorite products:
Cleanser (daytime): Rejuvenating Face Cleansing – I love, love, LOVE this cleanser! It’s super gentle, and will completely change the texture and tone of your skin, and it smells SO GOOD!
Cleanser (night): Cleansing Balm – Another amazing product. This stuff is incredible, and I’ve never heard anyone use it and not love it and the results. It’s one of the pricier items from BC, but a little goes a really long way. I’m just not a little over halfway through the one I bought in December. It can also be used as a moisturizing mask, for dry elbows and heels, for dry hair ends. The list goes on and on!
Cleansing Alternative: Charcoal Cleansing Bar – this might be one to consider mixing it into your routine to get some of the impurities out of your skin and help ward off the breakouts. It’s also great for the men. My husband loves this stuff.
Day Cream: Nourishing Day Cream – this is super light and effective
Night Cream: Rejuvenating Night Cream – also super light, so you don’t feel like you’re wearing a mask of moisture to bed. For more intense treatment, the Cleansing Balm (listed above) can also be used as an overnight treatment.
Eye Treatment: Rejuvenating Eye Cream – I live for this stuff! I call this a good night of sleep in the jar! It’s a lifesaver.
The No.1 Brightening Oil – This one is life. I just started using it a week ago, and I saw results within the first few days. It also smells ah-may-zing!
I’d also consider either of the rest of the products in these sets (or a mix of):
- No. 1 Brightening Collection
- No. 3 Balancing Collection – specifically the Balancing Facial Mask, which can be used as a spot treatment, or as a mask a few time a week. LOVE THIS!
Nourishing Rosewater Mist – Everyone loves this stuff! It’s refreshing and good to have at your desk or in your purse when your skin (and you) need a pick-me-up! Also a great refresher when you get off of a plane!
Volumizing Mascara – this is a newer product that they added! It increases lash fullness over 300%!
Ultimate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette – I die! This set is incredible. There are matte, satin, and metallic colors, and they are all super rich and go on effortlessly, but still provide vibrant color. It’s also just so pretty to look at!
Illuminating Trio – I don’t personally use this, but have seen those that do and seen the tutorials for it, they look incredible on, and the whole process is easy peasy!
Flawless in Five Set – this set includes the tinted moisturizer, touch-up skin concealer pen, Brow Pencil, Mascara, Blush Duo, and Lip Gloss (you select the shades for all). It’s a great entry into BC makeup for a super discounted cost.
If you join Band of Beauty ($29 annually), not only do you get free shipping over $100, you also get a 15% Product Credit with every order, and right now you also get the Nourishing Cream Cleanser ($26 Value) as a free gift.
Have you checked everyone off of your list and picked out some things for yourself? If not, please reach out to me! I’m always happy to talk about these products, make recommendations, etc. I’m here if you need me! Happy shopping, all!
