BeautyCounter is the latest sensation of the internet, and it’s not just a trend, it totally lives up to the hype. Let me ask you something. Do you know what kind of chemicals you are putting on your face everyday between your skin care routine to your make up? I’ll be honest, I didn’t, but when I looked at the chemicals I was putting on my face, I was appalled. I had no clue. Things that can cause Cancer, reproductive issues, among other serious illnesses all jam-packed into tiny little eye shadow palettes or in a tube of lipstick. It’s insane.
BeautyCounter is a company who’s mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. They have a “Never List” of approximately 1500 ingredients that you’ll never find in their products, many of those ingredients you’ll find in of your make up you are currently using. BeautyCounter’s approach is to be transparent so you know exactly what is in your products, no secrets, no harmful ingredients. Ever.
I’ve recently had the opportunity to try a few of BeautyCounter’s make up products, and I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I ended up liking them. I tried their Tinted Skin (Foundation), their Lengthening Mascara, their Lip Sheer (Lipstick), Lip Gloss, and their Cleansing Balm.
I’m impressed with all products. The Tinted Skin covers well and doesn’t feel like it is caked on. The Mascara, although a lengthening mascara, provides a decent amount of volume which I love and my lashes don’t clump together. And the Lip Gloss is amazing and is actually a moisturizing Lip Gloss, which is something I was wondering about in my video below. Fun Fact: BeautyCounter Lip Glosses are safe because some are made with Butylated hydroxy-toluene or BHT, a toluene-based preservative and fragrance ingredient that is linked to Cancer and Organ Toxicity. BHT is on BeautyCounter’s Never List!

I didn’t feel like pictures were really enough for this post, so for the first time EVER I have posted a VLOG. I wanted to bring you a true first impression of these products. In this VLOG you will see these products for the first time as I’m seeing them for the first time. I’m new to the Vlogging game so there is a lot of room for improvement here, don’t laugh too hard. Also, there’s nothing like watching yourself on video and realizing your flaws, like how many times you say the word So, Okay, Um, and Like. *Face Palm* Let’s not count how many times those words were said because I’m pretty sure it was somewhere around 28,634 times. Yikes. Also, It’s pretty lengthy, so if you make it to the end, I applaud you, but it’s really worth it to see all the products, I even use the Cleansing Balm at the end which is a total game changer.
In the video I mentioned the brush of the mascara, and like a total vlogging pro I was unable to get my camera to focus so here is a close up of the brush if you were wondering.
Okay, now to the good part! Christina (my BeautyCounter Consultant) is nice enough to let me give away a BeautyCounter Lip Gloss or Mascara! It’s the winner’s choice!
