My 5 Favourite Beautycounter Products + 3 Holiday Collection MUST HAVES
Safe, effective and beautiful.
Those three words epitomize what I want from my skin care and beauty products. Why? Because, I’ve realized that if I was learning what food was best to put into my body, I needed to know what ingredients and products were best to put on my body too!
For the past 15 years, my chronic illnesses journey has seen me try various diets and medications. This has all led me to read food labels carefully, research ingredients, be careful what I put into my body and ultimately make changes in my diet to live a healthier life. Many of you know I have a love for skin care and even worked in the skin care industry on and off for 5+ years. This led me to develop a deep knowledge of what goes into our skin care and beauty products.
So, a month ago I became a Beautycounter consultant because Beautycounter sets itself apart. Their mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone. Currently, the EU has banned or partially restricted 1400 ingredients from personal care products. Here in Canada that number is less than 600 and in the U.S. it’s 30.
But now you have the option to swap your skin care and beauty products for safer versions with Beautycounter.
Beautycounter has The Never List™, which includes over 1500 ingredients they will not produce their products with. They go above and beyond by screening each potential ingredient for its ability to cause cancer or toxicity in the body and disrupt hormones. They also test each ingredient in a product TOGETHER to ensure no harmful substances develop. Amazing, right? 80% of the ingredients are organic or plant-derived. (PS – Natural doesn’t always mean good for you!)
Since joining, I’ve been able to try many of the products (the product line keeps growing!) and have developed a few favourites which have now become staples of my skin care and beauty routine. Plus, the Holiday Collection just launched so I’ll list a few of my most-wished-for gifts!
