First, what is in Beautycounter products? Actually, I'd like to share what's NOT in Beautycounter products. Our Never List is a comprehensive list of toxic ingredients Beautycounter does not use in their natural products.
You won't find toxins such as: 1,4-dioxane, Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), Formaldehyde (for-mal-da-hide), Parabens (methyl-, isobutyl-, proply- and others) (pār-a-bins), Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLS and SLES)- to list just a few on the Never List. You can see the complete list here -> Never List of ingredients we avoid.
If you're a fan of truly clean, natural products, you can rest assured that the ingredients are safe and our products are effective. Beautycounter's motto is Truth, Beauty, Transparency, No Secrets.
Not to mention, the VP of product safety is the former Director at Safe Cosmetics Campaign. Her background not only adds credibility to the products but a wealth of information on what's really clean and natural in the beauty industry. The mission of Beautycounter is to clean up the beauty industry.
With that, here's my personal review ...
#1 Routine Every Day Facial Cleanser
|Beautycounter Routine Clean Facial Cleanser|
SIZE: 4 fl. oz.
A gentle face wash for daily use. Organic coconut oil removes impurities and buildup. Aloe, green tea, witch hazel, and floral extracts promote the appearance of healthy, rejuvenated and toned skin. Purifying citrus oils add a refreshing scent.
Formulated without parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrances, PEGs, SLS or secrets.

What I like about this facial cleanser is that it's very gentle and so effective. I think it would be perfect for sensitive skin, problem skin, and all skin types. There's no suds or foaming and goes on like a light creamy texture. I use it all over my face, including eyelids, and it's incredibly effective in removing make up.
After I'm done with this routine wash, I pat my face dry, and ready for moisturizer.
#2 Every Day AM Hydrating Cream
|Every Day AM Hydrating Cream|
SIZE: 1.65 fl. oz.
Every Day is a lightweight, unscented face cream with organic coconut oil and aloe to hydrate skin. Açai berry, pomegranate, lavender and chamomile soothe and refresh.
*You can complete list of ingredients by clicking image above.
What I like about this product is that it's lightweight but adds enough moisture for my skin. I don't have dry skin and prefer lightweight moisturizer. I use this for day and night because I prefer simplicity. For someone who needs extra moisture, the PM cream would be perfect. Or add a couple drops of the Lustro pure facial oils to the day or night moisturizer. You can see the Lustro Facial Oils on my website. I'll write a separate article on these wonders :).
If you like a solid, lightweight daily moisturizer, this is perfect. It's non-greasy and looks perfect under my mineral make up. I love it.
Beautycounter offers a complete facial care line which you can see on my website but I wanted to keep this article simple with two of my favorite products. I'll share more of my favorite products in future reviews.
Next week, the Body Care lines including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and more will be available to purchase. I can't wait!
