Beautycounter: Why I Love it SO Much



I made the switch to safer beauty in October. When we were in Charleston in November, I had strangers asking me about my skincare routine at bars. That is truly bananas to me! This girl has never had nice skin - it's always been generally fine, mostly dull, a little dry. It's rare I break out in my 30s and I do feel lucky about the state of things after two children and being in my 30s - especially after all of the artificial tanning I did in high school and college. I was also on Accutane in high school to avoid scarring from acne, and everyone knows how horrible that is, so this getting complimented on my skin is still totally shocking to hear. If you would have told me I'd be comfortable posting a makeup-free photo on my blog (SEE ABOVE) 6 months ago, I wouldn't have believed you!

You might know that Beautycounter is safe beauty. I don't feel like using these products puts me in a state of compromise whatsoever. They're clean, safe, and absolutely effective. The homework has been done for you. They feel, look, and perform at such a high level, it's frankly a bonus to me that they're safe. I do OKAY at trying to make safer choices for myself and my children, especially around the house, but my diet could use some work - this felt like an easy choice and an easy change to make. Beautycounter's goal is to change all makeup and skincare products, not just sell their makeup and get ahead.


I signed on as a Beautycounter Consultant in November. I was on the fence for a loooong time, undecided if I wanted to start working in direct sales again after my Mac & Mia experience. Really, I thought, if I can make back what I spend on the products I love so much, then it's definitely worth it for me! So that's my plan - I don't know what will come of it, but what I really know is - I love these products and it feels like a very natural extension for me to share them with you. Since starting, I hosted a few pop-ups. I was honestly shocked at how many women had been wanting to try Beautycounter but didn't know where to start. I figured I'd put together a blog post explaining what I use and love, and also put together what I think is best to start with if you don't want to dive in head first.

SKINCARE:
  • Cleansing Balm: this honestly qualifies to me as a must-buy. It melts your makeup off and leaves your skin so hydrated and smooth. You can even use it as an overnight mask. I use this religiously, it's one of my absolute favorites. Its pricey, but it lasts, and it's so wonderful.
  • Countertime Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence: this contains retinatural - something OTHER than retinol, which is what makes it safe for use during pregnancy and helps fight wrinkles in a SAFE way. This is a part of my morning and evening routine and I love the balance it provides.
  • Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel: there's no peeling happening, only serious hydration. I use this every other night between serums and moisturizers and it's just love. When I wake up, my skin is so hydrated and smooth - this has been a total game changer to me.
  • Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum: Used on the nights I don't use the overnight peel. This does a good job of softening lines and evening out your skin tone. 
  • Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream: a little goes a long way with this, it's going to last you! I love it as the last step before bedtime - it's thick and luxurious and awesome.
  • Countermatch Adaptive Moisturizing Lotion: I use this as my morning moisturizer and it's so light and easy to use under makeup.
So you know, you can purchase the whole Countertime Collection at a discounted price when you buy the whole set!

MAKEUP:
  • The Flawless in Five is the way to go. Right now if you buy one you get a free retractable foundation brush which looks heavenly. This is provided to you at a discounted rate and has you ready to roll on those stressful mornings.
  • Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer: I wear this daily. It's lightweight and contains SPF so it's easy to throw on under bronzer for early mornings at preschool drop off or the gym. I wear the second shade.
  • Radiant All Over Bronzer: I've always been a little heavy handed with my bronzer but I love this one! I always get compliments on looking tan and frankly... I'm not. I wear the dune shade.
  • The Velvet Eye Shadow Palette is a great replacement of the Naked Palette (which isn't clean). It's so awesome and I wear this really any time I'm putting eye shadow on.
KIDS:
  • Kids Bath Collection: I genuinely love the smell of these products, they're sharp-looking, and don't you want to be absolutely positive there isn't anything bad in your kids' bath products? Easy peasy, plus a great gift.
  • Baby Bundle Collection: another great gift. I plan on giving this to any friends who give birth in the future - such an easy thing and again, you know it's safe. The guesswork is gone.
BAND OF BEAUTY MEMBERSHIP:
  • If you plan on buying a lot of Beautycounter products the Band of Beauty Membership is super worth it for you. For $29, you get a free gift (usually worth more than it costs to join! Currently it's the melting body butter which I put on my elbows and hands EVERY night during the winter!), and a year of free shipping on orders over $100, as well as 10% back in product credit. You will NOT be automatically charged or have recurring billing - this isn't that type of membership and there's no funny business.
So that's that! I hope I did a good job of explaining what my absolutely critical products are and why I decided to hop on board with Beautycounter as a Consultant. Feel free to order through my link (make sure it says you're shopping with Molly Knorr!), and if you have any questions, email me or DM me on Instagram. I am so happy to help you!
