Hello friends! I am so excited to introduce you to my sweet friend Colleen (who also happens to be my cousin's wife). Colleen has recently begun her journey with Beautycounter and I am thrilled that she offered to write a blog post about these amazing products.
But before we get into all of that goodness, I wanted to share a little bit about Colleen. Colleen is a home schooling mama to 6 beautiful children! Five girls and one boy that looks EXACTLY like his dad! Oh and she also has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering! God Bless her soul!
Take it away Colleen...
I never had a regular "beauty regimen" and I barely wear makeup BUT at this point in my life, I was realizing that I needed to make a change with noticeable signs of aging. I don't enjoy pictures being taken of me nor do I like to look in the mirror. That is tough and I don't want my girls to see this negative self-image. After seeing many of my peers, who I don't associate with makeup at all (other homeschooling moms) selling Beautycounter, I decided to give the products a try. I had never noticed any difference with other products, BUT NO JOKE, after one night with the Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream and I was HOOKED! Not only are all the products incredibly high performing but they are also safer and cleaner!
There are 84,000 Chemicals on the market and ONLY 1% Have Been Tested for Safety! Most people don't know the products they are using on their skin contain ingredients linked to serious health conditions. Beautycounter has set the gold standard for safety in the personal-care industry. How? They omit 1,800+ questionable ingredients in their formulations that are currently used in the industry. And it doesn't stop there! Collectively we are using commerce as an engine for change and advocating for stricter guidelines and regulations to shift the personal-care industry away from using harmful and questionable ingredients.
After testing out the products and wanting more, I decided to join the mission (for the amazing discount) and to help get cleaner, safer products into the hands of EVERYONE!
Here is a round up of some of my very favorites:
Countertime Collection - Featuring a breakthrough plant-derived Retinatural Complex, this collection is designed to visibly firm, brighten, and plump the skin. Welcome to the new age of aging well.
Cleansing Balm - This multi-tasking cleansing balm is worth every penny! It is perfect for day and night use, hydrates while it cleanses, removing makeup and impurities with nourishing ingredients that won’t strip away your skin’s natural moisture. (Bonus: it can also be used as a mask for a hydrating overnight facial, sunburns, rosacea, rashes, the list goes on and on)!
Charcoal Facial Mask - Ten minutes to a purified complexion: this nutrient-rich kaolin clay mask with activated charcoal purifies and balances, absorbing excess oil and drawing out impurities. Salicylic and lactic acids aid in a gentle exfoliation, giving skin a smooth, polished look with a minimized appearance of pores. Perfect for those concerned with congestion and oily skin.
