the 15 safe beauty products I can't live without!

In honor of Beautycounter's HUGE sale that is going on right now - an unprecedented sale, I may add (seriously this is the first time they've ever done this!) - I thought I would round up 15 of the Beautycounter staples I just can't live without!

Right now for a limited time (ends Monday!) you can get 20% off your Beautycounter order with code: LOVE at checkout!  There are a few exceptions like bundles, kits, sunscreen and the new Overnight Peel - but everything else is ON SALE! If you've never tried Beautycounter NOW is the time to try at such a great price. If you are a regular shopper with BC, this is the perfect time to stock up on your favorites and tried-and-trues!

I personally started making the switch to safer products about 12 years ago, before my daughter was born. Once I started learning what ingredients were being used by the beauty industry I was shocked. And disappointed.  Back then it was SO difficult to find great "SAFE" products. These days with companies like Beautycounter that rigorously screen their ingredients and even have a list of 1500 ingredients called their "NEVER LIST" that they are committed to never using - shopping for super high quality products that are SAFE has never been easier!

Don't forget that this sale ends Monday - items will likely sell out quickly! So shop early for the best selection.  Use code: LOVE at checkout for 20% off your entire order (exclusions: kits, bundles, sunscreen and Overnight Peel).  These are 15 of the products that I use (almost!) everyday and absolutely LOVE.


top row, from left: 
Rosemary Body Oil, this is perfect for dry skin in the summer and winter... I love it in the summer because my skin looks GREAT in tanks and shorts after I apply it!
Rejuvenating Serum, you have likely already heard me rave about this product. I use it morning and night before moisturizer and LOVE the way it makes my skin feel.
Nourishing Night Cream, this is a simple but effective night cream that leaves my skin silky smooth until morning. It's a fair price for a great product!
Cleansing Balm, if you've never tried a cleansing balm it's a game changer! It softens and smooths skin and is GREAT for dry patches on your face (or really anywhere on your body!). Plus, it removes makeup gently.
Nourishing Exfoliating Cleanser, if you are looking for a gentle exfoliation, this is the product for you! No harsh or gritty ingredients and it won't dry your skin out. This product is extremely gentle with great results.

middle-ish row, from left:
Nourishing Eye Cream, the entire Nourishing line has great no-fuss products that WORK. This eye cream included... I don't go a day without eye cream and I love that this stuff is the perfect amount of moisture.
Rejuvenating Toner Pads, I use this morning and night after cleansing (I was out of them for a hot minute and MISSED them dearly!).  It's a great way to clean up any leftover makeup or residue and since I'm prone to breakouts it exfoliates while it cleans as well. Plus, it smells amazing!
Plumping Oil, okay ignore the funny name - this is my favorite face oil - EVER. It smells amazing and is just the perfect amount of moisture for my face when I need a little extra something. It's great for use after masks or just one drop at night. The irony of face oils is that they never leave your face oily. It's amazing!
Overnight Resurfacing Peel, this item is excluded from the 20% off but is worth mentioning all the same. It's gentle and effective and simply applying it before bed 3-4 times a week reduces fine lines, increases texture and helps keep acne away. I know, because it WORKS for me! This stuff is amazing!

bottom row, from left:
Peppermint Lip Conditioner, I keep this next to my bed and slather it on every night, and a few times throughout the day as well. It's like lip balm, but better. And peppermint flavor!
Brow Pencil, I'm kind of dramatic about my brows lately. I mean, who isn't these days. This brow pencil has a brush on one end (brilliant!) and an easy to use pencil on the other that gives a nice natural fullness to your brows. Plus it's easy to wipe off if you make a mistake (um, like me. All the time)
Liquid Eyeliner, I'm a huge liquid eyeliner fan and have been for, like, ever. I love that there is finally a SAFE liquid eyeliner! It's easy to use and has a great bold black color. Can't recommend this enough!
Blush, in Nectar, Beautycounter just relaunched their powder cosmetics (blushes, eyeshadows, luminizers) and they are AWESOME. This color has the perfect pink color with a little shimmer for a great natural pop of pink to the cheeks. 
Luminous Highlighter, in Halo, This is another brand new product that goes on so easy and looks super natural.  I apply it to my brow bone and very tops of my cheek bones for a little healthy glow - without all the harmful ingredients!
Dew Skin, This is a lightweight tinted moisturizer with SPF in it and I LOVE it. You can wear another layer of foundation under this or wear this on it's own. I love that it's not cake-y or heavy and makes your skin look naturally glowy. (I wear color #2!)

Other honorable mention... their lip gloss is THE best. I've never tried a color that isn't flattering!

Let me know if you have ANY questions about any of the products - I'm happy to answer them!
