Beautycounter Review

Let me just start out by saying this is not a sponsored review in any way. I purchased all these Beautycounter products over time with my own money – as I was interested in the company, the mission and the beauty products offered. A few of them I have used for a while. Recently when Beautycounter partnered with Target, I decided to add to my collection and try a few other things from the line.

I’ve been really trying to put more of an effort into my skincare. I have a little routine when Charles comes home every night from work – I give him time alonewith the boys and either take a shower or just go upstairs and unwind for a minute. This includes washing my face and alternating between various skincare products I’ve been using.

Today, I thought it would be fun to share with you what I’ve used from Beautycounter line and my thoughts! Check it out and let me know what YOU think!  b

First up is the Nourishing Face Oil. Let me just say that I NEVER thought I would like this product. Putting oil on my face? Sounded weird. I only got it because I had SO MANY people recommend it to me – and I’m thrilled they did! This stuff is amazing. I look forward to putting it on everyday, it makes my face feel amazing. I’m obsessed with it – and a little goes a LONG way so I know I’ll be using this for a while, but when it’s gone I’ll be getting some more for SURE!

This is a luxurious blend of five radiance boosters – it is super lightweight and the concentrated oil deeply nourishes skin with antioxidants and vitamins like Macadamia seed oil and Grapeseed oil. The perfect primer for makeup, it is easily absorbed, sinking into skin for lasting moisture, leaving you with a dewy, supple-looking and luminous compexion. Ideal for all skin types. After cleansing, lightly massage 2-3 drops into bare skin, or add a couple of drops to your moisturizer.


Next up is the Purifying Charcoal Mask – Holy Hell this stuff is amazing! Seriously – stop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and go order this. It will change your face. I have used it a few times since I got it and I am obsessed again.

The Purifying Charcoal Mask features a unique blend of clay, charcoal and sodium hyaluronate that works to gently exfoliate, draw out impurities, and soothe skin. The mineral-rich formula helps improve your skin’s overall condition by refining the appearance of pores and increasing elasticity. Ideal for normal to oily skin types. Apply a generous layer to clean skin. Leave on for 10 minutes, and rinse with warm water. Use 1-2 times per week and/or as an overnight spot treatment. Follow with Nourishing Face Oil for a radiance boost.


Seriously, I’ve never experienced anything like it! It dries on your face and pulls out the impurities, as you can see from the photo below – the dots around my nose is a problem area and the charcoal mask was getting to WORK! Wash it off and you will feel like you have a whole new face, I swear I saw an immediate difference after my first use.


A little extra pep in my step and I seriously feel like my skin hasn’t looked or felt better – considering I’ve had two kids and I’m regularly exhausted! Ha!

I also tried the Color Story from Target because I was really interested in the cream blush and BONUS! I got to try a lip gloss as well!. I love this perfect hint of pink – Lip Gloss in Peony and Cream Blush in Hibiscus. The cream plus is so soft and easy to put on. I’ve loved easily putting it on my cheeks to give me a hint of color!

Irresistibly soft and smooth, but never sticky, the Lip Gloss applicator delivers just the right amount of sheer color and subtle shine. Brighten cheeks with the natural color of our Cream Blusher, made with jojoba ester and carnauba wax. This light formula conditions and hydrates skin, making it perfect to apply on the go.


See – just a little bit of a glow. I love a good rosy cheek!


The Color Story comes with the Lip Gloss in Peony {on the right, below}, which I have been wearing non-stop. It’s the most beautiful shade. A previous Beautycounter purchase was the Lip Sheer {in the left photo, below} – I have one in Nude {pictured} and another in Rose, which I couldn’t find when I took these pictures. I’m sure it’s hiding out in the bottom of my purse somewhere. The sheers are just so wonderful to wear – they taste amazing {vanilla!} and wear so easily on your lips. Really recommend!

Lip Sheer: This silky-smooth, long-lasting formula is lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing for the perfect mix of sheer color and polished sheen. Every shade was color-tested to ensure that each hue complements all skin tones. Plus, there’s no synthetic fragrance—just a sophisticated hint of vanilla planifolia. Layer Lip Sheer to intensify the color, or try it under Lip Gloss for a more lustrous looklips

I also have the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer – the one thing I wear of my life is tinted moisturizer with SPF. I brush my teeth and I put on my tinted moisturizer – its part of my daily routine. I feel like it makes my skin look even and the moisturizer is always a good thing. Plus, I never would buy one without SPF in it – it’s an added bonus that is necessary for me. It’s so soft and lightweight – love it!

 Our tinted moisturizer leaves skin with a luminous glow. Dew Skin Moisturizing Coverage SPF 20 provides lightweight, sheer hydration that evens skin tone while protecting the skin from sun damage. Black currant, peony flower root extract, and vitamin C reduce the appearance of age spots and enhance skin brightness, while sodium hyaluronate promotes firmer, smoother-looking skin. 


Some more Cleansing

I have also recently tried the Cleansing Balm which is rich, soft and delicious. It leaves my face feeling soft, hydrated and fabulous. This was another one that was HIGHLY recommended to me, so I thought I would give it a go – so glad I did! Everyone needs a good cleanser in their life!

Made with vitamin C to brighten the appearance of skin, and raspberry and cranberry seed oils to moisturize, our Cleansing Balm melts into your skin to hydrate while it cleanses, removing makeup and impurities, but not stripping away moisture. Includes a 100% cotton muslin cloth that’s softer and easier on skin than a traditional washcloth. Ideal for normal to dry skin types.  Use nightly. In light, circular motions, massage an almond-size amount into skin, applying gentle pressure to cheeks, forehead, and eyebrows for increased circulation. Dampen cleansing cloth in hand-hot water and use it to gently wipe off balm. Thoroughly rinse skin with cool water and follow with Nourishing Night Cream.

The Cleansing Charcoal Bar is another little surprise that is unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It leaves my face feeling squeaky clean, fresh and bright! If you ever need a fun gift for a fellow beauty lover, this is really different and effective! I didn’t know how much I would really love the Charcoal products – but they are fabulous!

Our Charcoal Cleansing Bar detoxifies and absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. Made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.


So there you have it – a few of my favorite Beautycounter things! I have a few of their other products on my radar that I hope to add to my collection soon – specifically the Rosewater Mist! But I hope my reviews were helpful!

If you are interested in trying anything out, I totally recommend checking out some of the Beautycounter for Target items – they are the perfect size for a test run, and let’s be honest, Target is amazing for sending you home with a million extra things you didn’t even know you needed! So be sure to check it out when you are there next!

And once the product is out of Target – since it’s limited edition – hit up my friend, fellow sorority sister {delta delta delta} and Beautycounter extraordinaire – Elise Holt! She’s a consultant for Beautycounter like I am a Stella & Dot stylist {and another mom to two boys!} – I love to support other direct sales mamas out there! If you are in the market for anything Safer Skincare + Cleaner Beauty, be sure to check her out on Facebook for her current deals + specials!
