Happy Sunday Loves! I had an awesome opportunity to collaborate with a friend to try out some of BeautyCounter's Products. Before I received the products I've never heard of the brand and I'm so happy I can now share the word with all of you! BeautyCounter's mission is 'to get safer products into the hands of everyone.' I am helping you and them by telling you about some of their great products. 

There are many beauty products out there and lets all be honest we don't use just one brand. We have many brands we use for our skincare, lips, eyes, body wash and hair. Typically, because not every brand sells all of these products. BeautyCounter offers a variety and the best part about them is that they do not contain toxic ingredients. We all know that skin care is not cheap and every woman's dream is to stay young forever. We buy so many skin care creams to look young, but have any of us stopped and turned the box around to actually see what we are we putting on our face? 

BeautyCounter has developed the 'Never List' which is more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals that are not banned in the US. For example, a lot of the cosmetics and skin products we typically use, we should not use them if we are pregnant. That is a huge red flag!  If its not good for us to use while we are pregnant, its probably not good for us to use ever! 

When I opened up the packaging it was just so classic and chic! I love gold and navy, so immediately I had heart eyes. The lipstick packaging was by far my favorite. One of the many things I love about this brand is the scent of the products. They are very light and airy with hints of vanilla. 

 Charcoal Bar: $24

Everything that BeautyCounter says about this product is 100% true! It has active Binchotan charcoal powder, combined with witch hazel and it helps to purify and balance your skin. You can use it on your face and body. I loved that I could wash my face with the same product in the shower and not have to worry about my skin drying out or breaking out. It made my complexion brighter, and smooth.If you ever need a fun different gift for a fellow beauty lover I would highly recommend this product!

I was eager to try the mascara, because the product that I am currently using has been a favorite of mine ever since I read it on another blogger's page.  For all of you ladies out there that wear contacts this is a safe product!  I have friends that complain about their eyes itching from certain products.  I did like this product for everyday wear especially for work. It doesn't smudge, clump or flake which was very nice. It gave me good length and volume but I wish it had a little bit more of a heavier look. I typically like a thick mascara that I only have to apply two coats. With this mascara I felt like I had to add a few more but it all depends what you are looking for. I know many people like a thinner mascara they don't feel on their lashes. This is defiantly one of them, You don't even feel like you are wearing any. 

I have been putting this eye cream on before bed. Ive had a lot of trouble lately sleeping so of course that means dark circles and puffy eyes. Using it for the last couple of days I have noticed a decrease in the dark circles. It's a very light cream that did not make my eyes feel oily or heavy. I'm excited to continue to use this product and see how it works for me! I will make sure to keep you all posted. This would be a great product if you are just starting out with using an anti-aging cream.

This, ladies, was my favorite product. I can't tell you enough how much I love it! From the cute gold packaging to the amazing vanilla scent, to the way it moisturizes your lips and conditions them. Can you tell I loved it? The shade is a very light pink with a hint of berry I would say. Its perfect for a day to day look or try these tips below to change the look of it! We all know we have ten lipsticks and glosses in our purse. One for work, one for a more bold going out look and then a chapstick for these colder winter months that are approaching. You only need one with this product!

  •  Layer this color to intensify the color 
  • Try it under lipgloss for a more lustrous look 
  • Use it as a blush; Yes you can also use it as a blush! Just  gently rub it into your cheek bones 

Here are a few other colors that I am going to buy for the wall and winter. I love this scarlet red color

In addition to the products I had the privileged of trying here are some of their other products they have. I would love to hear if you have tried any and what you think!
