So What Is Beautycounter and Why Do I Keep Talking About It?

I've spoken about my reasons on why I switched to using only clean beauty products in my past few posts but haven't really shared why I keep talking about Beautycounter.

So if you want to find out everything there is to know about Beautycounter is, keep reading!
⚠️PS: This post will contain a lot of important information so it will be a long post but totally worth reading.

WHAT IS BEAUTYCOUNTER?

Let’s begin with the easy part. Beautycounter is a clean beauty brand with a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. They are leading a movement to a future where all beauty is clean beauty because they believe in this simple thing: BEAUTY SHOULD BE GOOD FOR YOU. They’ve created their own high standard of creating clean products where they eliminate over 1,500 questionable ingredients from their formulations. — this is called The Never List.

Not only does Beautycounter create clean beauty products for us to use, they also fight and advocate for a cleaner future. It’s not enough for them to JUST create high-performing non-toxic products. They’re fighting for stricter laws and regulations for cosmetic safety. Did you know that The U.S. has not passed a major federal law governing the cosmetics industry since 1938?! That’s a freaking long time and a lot has changed since then! Beautycounter has made it their business to be the leading company advocating for more health-protective legislation across North America.

As if you needed more reasons to love Beautycounter but here we are. Beautycounter is EWG verified and is proud to be a Certified B Corporation, which means their products are not only safe for humans, they’re safe for Mother Earth too.

WHY DO I KEEP TALKING ABOUT BEAUTYCOUNTER?

At first I was just impressed with their makeup. They looked Instagrammable, they performed well, and they’re clean! Win-win-win right?! But the more that I learned about the brand, what they stand for, what their mission is, I felt the need to be part of their #betterbeauty movement too! It’s not enough that I’M the only "SAFE” one. It’s not enough that I’m only doing this for my daughter.

Everyone deserves safer and better. That’s why I keep talking about this whole #cleanbeauty movement because I want more people to care. I need my friends, family, and followers to not only use safer beauty products; I need them to care enough to talk about it. And Beautycounter is the best place to start. They carry pretty much everything you would need for your #cleanbeauty transition, and if you want to really get involved, I’ll tell you more about it below.

WHAT DOES BEAUTYCOUNTER SELL?

SKINCARE - I’ve heard great things about BC’s skincare line. I’ve also seen results so I’m excited to venture more into their skincare line. I’ve only tried one skincare product and it’s their bestselling Overnight Resurfacing Peel. SPOILER ALERT: It’s amazing!
MAKEUP - Beautycounter makeup is my jam. That’s why my photos are all BC makeup. I love pretty much everything that I own. READ QUICK REVIEWS HERE. If you want to see these products in action, check out my Instagram highlight reel for #cleanbeauty.
BATH & BODY - I haven’t tried any of their bath & body products but same with skincare, I will definitely try them out soon!
BABY CARE - I love that they created clean products for our kids too! Our peace of mind is everything, amiright mommies? I got a bath set for Adeline but it seems like it’s not available as a set on the website anymore. These are what I got for my daughter: 1, 2, 3.
COUNTERMAN (for Men) - My husband still hasn’t hopped on the skincare train but I will gift him some Counterman products this year. I believe that men should take care of their skin the same way they take care of their cars. 😂

HOW TO SHOP BEAUTYCOUNTER PRODUCTS?

There are three ways to buy Beautycounter Products: Shop straight from the website as a normal customer, Shop as a Member, Shop as a Consultant.

SHOP AS A NORMAL CUSTOMER - This is pretty straight forward. You go on beautycounter.com, add items in your cart, and checkout! Easy peasy but you don’t get any perks.

SHOP AS A MEMBER - If you want all the clean beauty stuff with the perks, becoming a Band of Beauty Member is the best option for you!

PERKS OF A BAND OF BEAUTY MEMBER:
Product Credit - Every time you shop, receive 10% off your subtotal in product credit to use towards your next purchase. 
Free Shipping - Receive free shipping each time you place an order of $100 or more. 
Welcome Gift - Receive a free Countermatch Adaptive Body Moisturizer ($39 USD value) as our gift to you when you become a member and spend $50+ in product purchases.

SHOP AS A CONSULTANT - You don’t have to be a consultant if you don’t want to. If you’re happy with just buying all the clean beauty products and calling it a day, getting the BOB Membership is for you. But if you want to really become part of the Beautycounter movement, and are passionate about sharing safer and better options to the people around you, being a consultant would be your better option.

REASONS WHY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE A BEAUTYCOUNTER CONSULTANT:
25% off discount on Beautycounter products
It’s a great way to earn extra income (up to 35% commission on retail sales)

You gain a supportive sisterhood through a team.

I am a Beautycounter consultant and I love the 25% off discount every time I shop on BC, but I also do see this as a serious business. I love that my passion and mission can go hand-in-hand with my business. I love that I get to share to my followers and readers safer and cleaner beauty options through Beautycounter. I love that I get to provide for my family by just choosing to live a cleaner lifestyle. It’s a great business, and I hope I’m able to do this for a long time.
