Winter is not too gracious for skin and I bet you can feel it and notice on yourselves… Since the temperature in Texas is bellow 30 F, I was happy to be able to try Beautycounter cosmetics including moisturizer for two weeks now. Effects? Read bellow!
You may think it is another company like Avon with consultants trying to sell you low quality, toxic products. In this case the only similarity is that you may become a consultant, but you don’t have too. Beautycounter’s mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone and they’re really doing it. The online store is available for everyone, at any time. Formulas are clean and explained on their website. No hiding and no lies about ingredients. How about that? 🙂
From 3 products that I received from Ashley who reached out to me via Instagram (check out her profile @frostbeautyco) I definitely loved the moisturizer the most.
What I’ve got
Lash power couple:
Volumizing Mascara: 6 ml / 0.2 fl oz
Instant Eye Makeup Remover: 30 ml / 1 fl oz (20$ value)
Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion full size: 50 ml / 1.7 fl. oz. (48$ value)
Let’s start from moisturizer, because I’ve liked it the most. It naturally adapts to your skin’s hydration needs, without using silicones or synthetic polymers. The result? Smoother skin in 2 weeks. I was using it recently everyday and I love everything about this moisturizer (OK, maybe except the regular price that is 48$), but it’s worth it!
Light as a cloud
The lotion is super lightweight, so it doesn’t leave any sticky layer on skin. It’s great to use under makeup during the day if needed, as well as for night. I like the packaging that comes with pump which gives you just perfect amount of the product every time (I use 1-2 pumps for face and neck). I also like delicate scent that comes from plum oil (plum oils smells like almonds).
My skin feels way better hydrated and smoother. I did not notice any acne even though formula contains plum oil – it does not clog pores at all!
Lash power couple
Mascara is suppose to give volume, but it didn’t do much to my lashes to be honest. I don’t know if anything can beat 4in1 by Tarte, so I’m very picky now. For those who love VERY delicate and natural look- go for it, elegant packaging, good brush is what you need and Beautycounter has it!
Makeup remover – it works, however I’m not a big fan of water + oil formula because it makes my eyes feel oily and ‘unclean’ after using, so this is not my favorite product. It also has pretty strong, floral scent that makes me wanna sneeze. Only if you like flower scents and kind of oily cleansers formulas you’ll be pleased with this product.
To sum up, I’d definitely buy the lotion! I think it’s one of the best natural face moisturizers I’ve ever used.
