Beauty Counter


My skin has always been an issue for me.  As I have gotten older, it is so frustrating because I am still getting acne (hormonal) along my jaw line.   I have used every product on the market and finally found something I love!


I was given the opportunity to sample a Beautycounter Pouch.  The pouch contained Routine Clean Cleanser, Gentle Exfoliator, Day Hydrating Cream, Night Hydrating Cream, Rosewater Spray, Anytime Eye Cream, and Calendula Lustro Face Oil.   (this Calendula oil is for oily/acne skin…there is a jasmine for mature skin, and a ylang/chamomile blend for sensitive skin.)

Beautycounter is an amazing, (very new) company.  Their mission is to provide safe products sans a bunch of chemicals.   Check this information out:

There is a strong connection between our health and what we’re exposed to in our daily environment. There are more than 80,000 chemicals on the market today and we know little about the safety of many of them. Consider these facts:

  • On average American women use 12 beauty products a day
  • These beauty products expose use to over 100 chemicals!
  • 1938 was the last year government passed any law on the safety of cosmetic ingredients.

Beautycounter provides safe, chic and effective products. What’s sets it apart is the fact that they are 100% transparent, no hidden secrets or ingredients. They pride ourselves on our strict ingredient screening and our honest message. They work to educate consumers and empower them to make healthier choices.

  • Is it safe?
  • Do we need it?
  • Does it work?

I followed the directions perfectly…wash twice a day with the cream cleanser, spray face with rosewater,  a pump of hydrating cream mixed with a drop of oil, then the eye cream.  (I used the exfoliator 3 times this week.)  I will be the first to admit…I didn’t want to put all that moisturizer on my face.  And wash it with a “cream” cleanser?  And the oil?  No way.  It seemed so counter productive to put oil on an oily face.  Not so much.  Before, I was stripping away the moisture from my face and it was producing more oil.  and zits.

The proof is right here in the pictures of my face.  My skin is now dewy and elastic!   I took these with no make up on.  (that was scary)  The before picture was taken last Wednesday (2/5/14) and the after picture was taken only a week after.  (2/12/14.) I plan on using these for a month and I’ll post more results then.

Hey Girl…





My husband actually likes when I do wear yoga pants all day though.  (clean ones) He even wrote it on our advent calendar when we had to write what we were thankful for.   (He knows who butters his bread.)

I am not married to Ryan Gosling.  (not yet anyway.)  I am married to a pretty awesome guy who puts up with my craziness.  My “Hey Girl” photo cards would look something like these:




























Hope your Monday is filled with laughter!  Stayed tuned this week for two awesome giveaways!  🙂
