My Favorite Beautycounter Products for Christmas

There’s no better gift than the gift of clean beauty.

And Beautycounter is the current frontrunner in the clean beauty industry! Since its inception in 2013,  Beautycounter and founder Gregg Renfrew have made huge improvements to the American beauty scene. By changing legislation and sourcing cleaner, more-mindfully sourced ingredients, their company is making waves to improve and protect the health of Americans. Just Google the company and you’ll find a whole host of articles detailing their achievements.

But this year, I wanted to share something fun with you: a roundup of their holiday collections as well as my current favorite products! This will help you get a  jumpstart on your holiday shopping, not to mention help you create your own Christmas wish list. I know there are quite a few products I’m eyeing for December 25th! One of my dear friends and former freshman roommate, Katie Hammond, is a Beautycounter consultant and rocking the side hustle. She is also a full-time Physical Therapist and a huge supporter of living an active, well-balanced lifestyle. Check out her blog and Instagram! We’ve been friends since 2011, and I truly am so thankful for her friendship these past NINE years! If you want to support her side business as a consultant, feel free to shop with her this holiday season!

My Ride-Or-Die Products

ONE
Brilliant Brow Gel – $24
Defined brows are a total game-changer. I literally use this gel EVERYDAY to groom and tame the brows. Even if I’m not gonna wear a full face of makeup, I at least use this brow gel to define my face. Flake-proof, foolproof, and easy to use, a tapered applicator allows for precision.

TWO
Skin Twin Foundation – $45
A new product for 2020 that’s quickly become a favorite. This foundation features breathable, buildable coverage with hyaluronic acid to visibly plump the skin. I wear shade 210, but if you need help picking your shade, feel free to reach out to Katie directly (@strongersaferbeauty on IG) and she’ll help you find your skin twin.

THREE
Luminous Powder Highlighter – $39
Every time I use this in my makeup routine, I get compliments on the definition it brings to my face! Made with ultra-fine pearls that instantly brighten with a luminous glow. Available in two shades, I personally love the Topaz!

FOUR
Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum – $79
I use this nightly for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. If you’re in your 20s, now is a great time to introduce anti-aging products into your regimen. Love the scent and texture of this formula! Will definitely be adding this to my Christmas list this year!

FIVE
Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm – $89
One of the most versatile products that Beautycounter makes! Can be used for makeup removal, overnight facials, and even as treatment for summer sunburns.

SIX
Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask – $49
I use this mask once a week to draw out impurities and deep cleanse. I’m prone to oily skin and this helps combat pore congestion. Made with salicylic and lactic acids which aid in a gentle exfoliation, giving your skin a smooth, polished look while minimizing the appearance of pores.

SEVEN
Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel – $63
This peel is MAGIC! Been using the same bottle for the past couple years and constantly amazed by the results. This leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture while boosting clarity. Made with glycolic, malic, and botanically derived lactic acid, the formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe to reveal a brighter, healthier looking, renewed complexion.

EIGHT
Counter+ Charcoal Cleansing Bar – $26
This cleansing bar was one of the first products I ever purchased from Beautycounter. Still one of my favorites! Great for facial cleansing, but also great at detoxing your armpits when switching to cleaner deodorants. Formulated with Binchotan charcoal powder to help detoxify and absorb impurities in skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion.

NINE
Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion – $49
Great everyday facial lotion that won’t irritate your skin or clog your pores. Lightweight with a formula that adapts to your skin throughout the day providing up to 24-hours of hydration.

TEN
Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream – $69
Combat the under-eye shadows and crow’s feet of 2020 with this high-performance eye cream the revitalizes the eye area for a youthful, brighter appearance. I use this every night in my bedtime skin routine and can’t imagine what my face would be without it.
