My Favorite Beautycounter Products & a Giveaway

Happy Friday, all! Let’s head into the weekend discussing a popular beauty brand, shall we? Beautycounter seems to be everywhere these days. I first heard about the brand through fellow bloggers, and now Target even is carrying a limited edition line. I recently was contacted by Heather, a Beautycounter consultant, to see if I was interested in trying a few products. After all the hype, this was a no-brainer! I’ve been testing these products for a few weeks now, so it’s safe to share my favorite Beautycounter products and a giveaway at the end of the post!

I will admit that since getting my skin under control, I wasn’t exactly keen on introducing new products to my routine. What if I had a bad reaction or the products caused me to breakout? Luckily, Beautycounter products are safe for sensitive skin and free of harmful chemicals.

Heather sent over a sample pack of the Nourishing Collection – formerly the Essentials Collection. First of all, you know a product is on-point with their branding and packaging when even sample sizes are cute!

It was nice to have a decent amount of each product to work my way through a complete daily skincare regime. My two favorite products by far are the Nourishing Cream Exfoliator and Nourishing Eye Cream. The exfoliator makes my skin feel fresh and smooth without being too harsh or irritating. I regularly try a lot of eye creams, and this is by far one of the best ones that I’ve used. The consistency almost reminds me of a silicone-based primer – it’s creamy, but it slides on and blends seamlessly into the skin. I also haven’t had any issues with my under eye concealer creasing, so that’s always a plus.

The biggest surprise to me was that Beautycounter also has makeup products! I tested a sample of the Tint Skin Complexion Coverage Foundation, which unfortunately just isn’t for me. It is described as a buildable sheer-to-medium coverage, but I found it to be very light coverage at best. It looked slightly cakey when I tried to build it up for more coverage, and I ultimately was oily within a few hours.

I did, however, fall in love with the Lip Sheer in the shade Twig. Hello smooth, creamy lipstick goodness. I thought this was going to be more of a lip balm with a slight color to it, but its instead become my new go-to daily lip color. I can’t even begin to describe how moisturizing it feels on the lips – it applies like a dream! And, the color is opaque enough to be worn on it’s own or with a little lip liner. I definitely will be picking up a few more shades in this product.

    I saw the Target Beauty Counter collab last weekend. After recently having a nasty breakout thanks to a new hairspray I’ve been on the search for better quality everything. While I was at the store I did a quick google search and didn’t find any information that was really helpful. So I’m super excited I found your post. Thanks!

    i have heard of beauty counter but never actually tried anything. i’m trying not to buy new products at the moment, but that lip product looks AMAZING on you!

    Hi ladies– I just wanted to point out that if you have been to a Target store recently, you may have noticed our limited edition “Beautycounter for Target” collection. It’s the same great line of products but in smaller sizes! Every Target Beautycounter item comes with a “gift with purchase” promotion. Right now it is a FREE face oil ($68 value) with any $100 purchase! For Miss in the Midwest readers, you can stack that offer on top of the ones listed in the blog and snare a lot of free products this week! Please email me with questions: [email protected]

    I have the Beautycounter Hydrate body lotion in Citrus Mimosa and I love it, it smells so good.

      One of my favorites! You should try out our bath collection– same great citrus mimosa scent.

    I’ve heard so many good things about the brand and was so tempted when I saw some of the skincare at Target with their collab! The lip product sounds so nice and looks like a great neutral shade!

      You should definitely pick up some goodies at Target (a lot of Targets are sold out so you may need to go to EACH purchase comes with a gift-with-purchase. Right now it is a $29 mascara with a $50 purchase. I highly recommend the Charcoal mask 🙂 Email me if you have more questions or aren’t able to find any products and I can help you out: [email protected]

    I love the Twig lip color! I like something with some color but not too bold

  9. 9.23.16

    That lip color is really pretty on you, and I love the packaging! That’s often been my draw back with foundations and concealers- they tend to always be a touch lighter than I would like!

    The Nourishing Cream Cleanser seems great. I love products without harmful chemicals! Thanks!

    I’ve heard great things about their lip sheers and am dying to try one! I love their undereye cream as well and have been trying out their Countertime line which I’m still on the fence about. Thanks for sharing your review!!

      If you haven’t already tried the Cleansing Balm, it’s amazing. The balm contains Vitamin C, which brightens skin, and raspberry and cranberry seeds to moisturize. Hands down my favorite Beautycounter product! I use it in conjunction with the Rejuvenating Line (formerly Countertime) and have noticed such a difference in skin tone since I added it to my daily routine. It’s 30% off right now, too 🙂

    How did I miss this post when I checked Bloglovin’ this morning? This sound like a neat brand. I appreciate you tried it out for a couple weeks first and gave an honest review. Love the lip color on you.

    I would love to try the Rejuvenating Day Cream (really the whole Countertime Collection). Need to slow down the aging process. 🙂 ([email protected])

    I ADORE BeautyCounter! So much so I became a consultant a few months ago! I use the nourishing line and am also obsessed with the Twig lip sheer. Enjoy your goodies girl! <3

      Same here! I loved their mission so much that I had to get involved 🙂

    I had not heard of this product line before, and I’m especially interested in the lipstick – really pretty, sheer color!

    You know I love BC! Have you tried the Dew Skin? You might like that since the tint skin didn’t work for you. I love the Twig lip color though. It goes on so smooth!

      Heather Dahlen said:

      I’ve found the Tint Skin goes on best after using a couple drops of the Soothing or Balancing Oil! Dew Skin is fantastic, especially for summertime.
