I first heard about Beauty Counter through my sister-in-law Kate, who is now a Senior Consultant with the company. The brand’s empowering message spoke to Kate for several reasons, and once I heard her personal connection and commitment to Beauty Counter, I decided I need to learn more.
Beauty Counter is working to make the world healthier, along with safer products you can trust. Because we all deserve better. Their vision is bold— and I like bold. I thought I would give a few products a try and essentially help put the truth back in beauty with Beauty Counter. By giving my input on how I liked each product I’ve tried thus far, I hope you are able to find something you like or want to try differently in your skin care routine. We all have so much to learn about the products we use, and spreading the message that we need to educate ourselves before trying products is a huge key to success in this market. Using my platform to speak out is the sole purpose of blogging to me.
I was not paid or sponsored to write this post. All opinions are my own. I am not attempting to sell the products or help anyone else sell the products, but because I genuinely wanted to see what all the HYPE was about!
1. LUSTRO FACE OIL 3
The Lustro Face Oil 3 was the first product I tried from Beauty Counter and I fell in love with it. Not at first I will admit, but eventually when I saw for myself results on my forehead and neck from using the oil to moisturize and smooth fine lines in the evening. I originally didn’t like feeling all oily, but I woke up feeling refreshed, as if my skin had seen a new and brighter light than the day before. This product is simple and easy to incorporate into your existing night time routine. All you need to do is press 3-4 drops of the oil into your moisturizer before applying to your face and neck. It’s a silky formula that absorbs easily for ultimate hydration. I fully recommend this one!
2. LUSTRO SUGAR SCRUB
Say hello to your new favorite spa. This product is like bringing the spa to your house, it’s that good. The Lustro Sugar Scrub smells absolutely delicious, as it’s made with brown sugar to rid away any dull skin, and evening primrose, sweet almond, apricot kernel, and sunflower oils, to leave skin looking supple and smooth. I was using this product ALL the time prior to surgery to get my skin healthy and glowing. Once I get out of my cast, you better believe I will take a whole bath in this scrub. Not literally, but I will use it all up and quick. What I like most about this product is that it allows me to relax and feel like I am being pampered. Instead of not knowing what is being put on my body at a spa or salon, I know exactly what this scrub is made of and what it’s impact will be. I’ve found that educating myself on chemicals in the products I use, is vital to the long term result. Not to mention, it’s vital to my health.
3. HYDRATE EVERYDAY BODY LOTION
This is one product that has taken me a little time to adjust to. The Hydrate Everyday Body Lotion is a lightweight product, that is far less heavy than any product I have ever used. It doesn’t leave me feeling cakey or like I’ve unevenly applied. Simply because of how lightweight it is, I feared I was not using enough each time. Now that I know my body is adjusted to the product, I see the impact and the power of the moisturizer and I like it a lot. Not every product you try is going to suit you, but I think your body needs to be given the appropriate amount of time to adjust to something before you toss it out. Lastly, my favorite part of this product is the refreshing citrus scent it has. It’s not too bold or too dramatic. It’s just the right note of citrus to enlighten your skin and your senses.
4. ROUTINE CLEAN CLEANSER
Another bit of honesty here, I have never used a cleanser before. I have always had the skin type that needs a bar of unscented soap and a washcloth to get the job done, and done without a breakout. Recently I decided to give a few different daily cleansers a try, and this Routine Clean Cleanser was one of them. I must admit that I was shocked by how much more make up this cleaner washes away than anything else I have tried. It really digs deep (scary but good) and cleanses the skin. While it’s working away, taking off the day’s make up, it’s also soothing and conditioning the skin naturally. That’s a BONUS in my book. It has organic coconut oil in it which helps to remove buildup while softening the skin. Ding Ding Ding… This is a winner!
All in all I would say this is a POSITIVE review. Again, not because I am trying to sell the product or help anyone else sell the product, but because I genuinely wanted to see what all the HYPE was. After a few weeks of trial and error, I feel like each item is something I will continue to use in my skin care routine. I think I have found a few favorites in the bunch, but all-in-all, Beauty Counter is changing the game and they are packing some major heat. Their all natural approach is winning over so many health conscious folks, that it just may stick around for the long haul. I sure hope so anyways!
