Happy Friday, all! Let’s head into the weekend discussing a popular beauty brand, shall we? Beautycounter seems to be everywhere these days. I first heard about the brand through fellow bloggers, and now Target even is carrying a limited edition line. I recently was contacted by Heather, a Beautycounter consultant, to see if I was interested in trying a few products. After all the hype, this was a no-brainer! I’ve been testing these products for a few weeks now, so it’s safe to share my favorite Beautycounter products and a giveaway at the end of the post!
I will admit that since getting my skin under control, I wasn’t exactly keen on introducing new products to my routine. What if I had a bad reaction or the products caused me to breakout? Luckily, Beautycounter products are safe for sensitive skin and free of harmful chemicals.
Heather sent over a sample pack of the Nourishing Collection – formerly the Essentials Collection. First of all, you know a product is on-point with their branding and packaging when even sample sizes are cute!
It was nice to have a decent amount of each product to work my way through a complete daily skincare regime. My two favorite products by far are the Nourishing Cream Exfoliator and Nourishing Eye Cream. The exfoliator makes my skin feel fresh and smooth without being too harsh or irritating. I regularly try a lot of eye creams, and this is by far one of the best ones that I’ve used. The consistency almost reminds me of a silicone-based primer – it’s creamy, but it slides on and blends seamlessly into the skin. I also haven’t had any issues with my under eye concealer creasing, so that’s always a plus.
The biggest surprise to me was that Beautycounter also has makeup products! I tested a sample of the Tint Skin Complexion Coverage Foundation, which unfortunately just isn’t for me. It is described as a buildable sheer-to-medium coverage, but I found it to be very light coverage at best. It looked slightly cakey when I tried to build it up for more coverage, and I ultimately was oily within a few hours.
I did, however, fall in love with the Lip Sheer in the shade Twig. Hello smooth, creamy lipstick goodness. I thought this was going to be more of a lip balm with a slight color to it, but its instead become my new go-to daily lip color. I can’t even begin to describe how moisturizing it feels on the lips – it applies like a dream! And, the color is opaque enough to be worn on it’s own or with a little lip liner. I definitely will be picking up a few more shades in this product.
