I’ve got more in the wings on this subject forthcoming, but just had to share these utterly lovely holiday sets by Beautycounter. They are perfect for gift-giving, even if the recipient is yourself. (Ahem, the lip gloss has already found its way into my makeup bag. Shocker.)
The Travel Body Collection – You know how much I love the body wash and lotion, right? Remember this love letter? Well, I completely neglected to mention how much I love the shampoo and conditioner in that post. (Quelle horreur!) So so good, and this set is the perfect way to try out all the products without making a commitment to the larger sizes. Oh yeah, and a nice gift too.
Rose Neroli Body Oil – Two words for you. Rose. Neroli. Enough said. #amazingscent
Jet Set Bag Collection – What a chic set of white cosmetic bags. Perfect for the jetsetter in your life.
Sheer and Shimmer Collection – Okay, so this might be the MVP of the bunch. First off, the Twig lip sheer is the perfect nude for everyday or your ultra smoky eye looks, but you guys, let’s chat about that shimmer oil. A little bit on the legs, maybe on the collarbone and shoulders…this has the potential for super sexy.
Day-to-Night Lip Gloss Collection – Last, but certainly not least, this lip gloss collection is fantastic. The red is sheer enough to not overpower the face, and I adore the opalescent shade layered over all different shades of lipstick.
Happy (almost) holidays!

It really bothers me that you aren’t forthright about the fact that you’re a consultant for Beautycounter when you write these posts. Please start adding a disclaimer to them that you earn a commission from all sales people make when they follow these links. I’m not sure exactly why, but it feels very different than an Amazon affiliate link, or an rstyleme link.

I’m sorry you feel that way, Amelia. As I state clearly in my sidebar, my posts contain affiliate links…and I’m not sure why it feels different than a Reward Style or Amazon link to you because frankly, there is no difference.
AmeliaOctober 22, 2015 at 6:19 pm
Okay, I realized why it feels different to me. It’s because Amazon and Reward Style affiliate links are very straightforward, and transparent – you earn a small percentage from each purchase made via the link. Beautycounter, on the other hand, is an MLM, which is a significantly more exploitative business model. By not differentiating that, it makes it seem like you get the same small affiliate bonus from Beautycounter that you get from amazon or reward style – but that’s not the case! That, to me, really ups the ick factor. It may not for others, and fair enough. But it strikes me as dishonest, and given that I’ve been reading you (and following your affiliate links for years), I thought you’d like to know that you’re giving that impression.

I have heard mixed reviews on Beautycounter body products, but the travel set might be the easiest way for me to try before I buy.
Have you had any experience with Suki Skincare? It seems like they have a cult following for their facial products and are 100% natural/organic/no harsh chemicals, etc.

I haven’t tried Suki yet, but I’m slowly working my way through several organic lines right now. LOVING Mun at the moment: http://munskin.com/

You had me once I saw Mun’s packaging!!

I am a Beautycounter consultant and was a user of the products for 8 months prior to joining the company. For anyone who has the “icky” taste in their mouths because of companies that have given MLM’s a bad name, you’re not alone. I did too. I did a tremendous amount of research on the company before joining. What makes Beautycounter different (besides the pay structure-Beautycounter does not allow for consultants to ride the coat tails of their down line successes), is that you can purchase Beautycounter products in various ways. You can go directly to the Beautycounter website and no commission is paid to a consultant. So it’s like shopping on any company website. You can purchase products through J Crew and Goop.com as well. Going though a consultant doesn’t change the retail price you pay for the products.
Beautycounter is a company unlike any other and I certainly recommend researching before jumping to conclusions based on other company business models.
I have used products from drug store brands all the way to La Prarie and Beautycounter products have by far been the most incredibly high performing and safest products I have ever used.
I highly suggest trying as many products as you can because your skin will never look so good and you know you’re putting 100% safe ingredients on and in your body.
