Getting Started with Beautycounter

Hello!  I'm so glad you found this little corner of my website. While my website mainly focuses on photography, I have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you other content!  A new journey of mine that I would like to share with you is Beautycounter!

I have been excited about Beautycounter for the past year or so, trying a few samples of products here and there, and doing lots and lots of research.  Let me tell you, I am a researcher.  If I am interested in something, I dig in and spend way too much time looking into whatever it may be (traveling, food, health, products).  In this case, it was Beautycounter and I just finally decided to take the leap and became a Beautycounter consultant!

"Our mission is to get safer products into the hands of everyone."

Throughout the past many years, I have been focused on changing my health habits to nutritious food, focusing more on real, unprocessed, organic, free range, and grassfed foods whenever possible.  I have been switching personal care, laundry, and cleaning products for natural ones that actually work, with a lot of trial and error.  This also applies to skincare and makeup.  

Everyone has their own skin concerns.  Mine?  Acne and sensitivity.  Oh, how much I absolutely hate Acne.  I've been dealing with it forever and it has become even worse in my adult life.  While there are other things I am doing internally with food, what I'm putting on my face definitely matters as well.  Many natural products I've tried have been majorly lacking, even though I was so hopeful - they caused even more breakouts, left my skin feeling more oily, and the makeup was either super light and I felt like I had to put on multiple layers to even see a difference or it was super cake.  No matter what kind I used, it would come off quickly and didn't look I had makeup on after 10am.  I have found that Beautycounter works.  My oiliness has come way down (even in the heat of summer!), my skin seems brighter, more even-toned, feels overall so much more clean.  

The makeup is so great as well!  Most days I prefer light coverage to help reduce the appearance of my acne and redness, blush for a pop of color, and eyes makeup.  I am not typically one to put anything besides chapstick on my lips, however I have been using the more neutral lips sheers and glosses!  I love the color palettes Beautcounter offers, the make-up stays on throughout the day and the products have the perfect amount of color when you put them on!

So what else is unique about Beautycounter?

Did you know that the personal care industry has very little regulation in our country? Companies are allowed to put in known toxins [ingredients] that are liked to hormone disruption, fertility issues, cancer, asthma, and more. And they aren't required to disclose these ingredients with you. Sounds wrong, right?

Beautycounter is a front runner in the movement to create and educate about safe skincare and are committed to get high quailty, high performing, safer skincare and makeup in the hands of everyone.
