My Top 10 Beautycounter Products
updated summer 2018
I’ve been using Beautycounter products as part of my skincare and cosmetics regimen for over years now, and it’s safe to say I’ve tried almost every line from the product. However, there are a handful of products that have become total staples for me – meaning I have emptied many a bottle and repurchased over and over. And over again. I adore these products and will SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS.
Let’s get started.
Body Wash in Citrus Mimosa – This body wash is everything I have been looking for…um, dramatic? Maybe, but it deserves my accolades. I have spent so much time (and money) at local natural food stores trying every. single. bar. soap. And every. single. body. wash. And nothing wowed me at all. This body wash, however? Is perfect. It foams up nicely, has a lovely light citrus scent that smells fresh and is not overpowering in any way (can’t deal with heavy scents), and only takes about a nickel-sized dollop on my puffy sponge thing to clean my entire body so it lasts for a long time. Game changer.
Hydrating Body Lotion in Citrus Mimosa – Okay. So body lotion usually falls into two categories for me. 1. It’s absorbs well but leaves my skin feeling a little dry, or 2. Is creamy and luxurious, but doesn’t absorb well, leaving my skin greasy and ugh-o-rama. This lotion, however, is totally creamy, yet completely absorbs, so I’m not forced to walk around my bedroom for 15 minutes naked before putting clothing on. The scent is the same as the body wash. Light, citrus, fairly unassuming…just they way I like it.
Body Oil in Citrus Rosemary – You guys know I love my oils, right? This body oil smells divine – the scent is rosemary citrus, and wowza, it just feels so luxurious on the skin. I’ve never been a body oil only kind of gal (I like creamy, what can I say?), but this is great as a summer moisturizer on its own. However, the way I love to use it is in the winter when I’m drier than usual. I mix a couple of drops with the body lotion and it’s like a mega concoction of hydration. The oil is in full-out rotation from January to March, believe you me.
Citrus Mimosa Body Bar – Um, are you catching on here? I kind of have a thing for the citrus mimosa scent. And I am trying to transition completely to bar soaps opposed to body wash.
Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist SPF 30 – This sunscreen is my personal fave for non-toxic options. Smells good, sprays evenly, and doesn’t contain Oxybezone. (Protect our ocean reefs!)
Nice Do Shampoo – I have one word for you. DREAMSICLE. Yes, the Kidscounter line of products smells exactly like a Dreamsicle from my youth. Orange and vanilla, baby. The greatest scent combination known to man. Honestly, the only problem with this line is that my kids might drink it. The shampoo is great – lightweight, rinses easily, doesn’t sting the eyes. Pretty much the kid shampoo trifecta.
Not a Knot Conditioner – I adore this conditioner because it moisturizes, but doesn’t weigh the hair down. Both of my kids have fine, straight hair, and most conditioners end up making their hair look dirtier than before their bath. This one doesn’t leave hair looking stringy at all, which is a huge factor for me.
Velvet Eyeshadow Palette in Romantic – I love me some cool-toned eye shadows and these make me feel so lovely. (Beautycounter totally revamped the performance of their eye shadows, and they are light-years ahead of the previous version.
There you have it – the products I repurchase again and again. I hope this is helpful, and if you have any specific questions, please leave them in the comments!
