I was super excited when I found out that Beautycounter was offering a significant discount on its skincare regimens (20% – 25% off; more below on how to obtain this discount plus an additional one for first-time customers) now through February 1, 2018, because, while I love the quality of all their products, their skincare line in particular has produced huge results for me. I thought it would be the perfect time for me to tell you all why I decided to partner with Beautycounter and the impact that it has had on my skin and even my self-esteem.
The Challenge of Finding Safe and Effective Skincare Products
I have always had problem skin. When I was young, I struggled with oily skin and constant breakouts. Desperate to find a solution, I tried any drugstore and department store products I could find, but to no avail. Moreover, the harsh chemicals in those products often created new issues for me, such as redness, peeling, and even headaches.
As an adult with combination skin, I now deal with both breakouts and extremely dry patches, making it very difficult to find products that address one condition without exacerbating the other. Also, after my experience as a teenager, which left me with skin damage and irritation that took a long time to dissipate, I was extremely reluctant to try new products even though the products I was using did not provide a real solution. As a result, I developed dark spots and uneven skin texture that made me feel very self-conscious about taking photos. You can even see that in my Instagram feed—up until November 2017, when I started using Beautycounter’s skincare line, I very rarely posted photos of myself for that reason.
Then, in late October 2017, I learned about Beautycounter and was impressed by the company’s mission and philosophy and knew I had to give it a try. I was a huge fan of the fact that Beautycounter has banned the use of more than 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals (by comparison, the European Union has banned more than 1,300 chemicals from the product formulas of personal care products for this reason, while the U.S. has only partially banned 30 to date) but still remained committed to creating products that perform.
Feeling assured that I would not suffer any side effects from just trying out the products, I ordered the following:
• The Nourishing Regimen, which includes a daily use cleanser, a gentle exfoliating cleanser, and a nighttime and daytime moisturizer set;
• The Cleansing Balm, which is a multi-purpose product you can use to remove make-up, as a moisturizer on cold days, and as a hydrating mask; and
• The No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask, a kaolin clay mask that absorbs excess oil and exfoliates without drying your skin, but can still be used as a spot treatment for acne.
This combination of products began producing dramatic results for me after just two weeks. The Nourishing Collection cleansed and moisturized my skin just enough to keep oiliness at bay without blocking my pores. The Cleansing Balm ensured my skin stayed supple and hydrated even on the coldest days, when I would usually develop the worst dry patches. The Balancing Facial Mask was the perfect spot treatment, nipping pimples in the bud without irritating the surrounding skin. The fact that skincare products without any of the usual harsh chemicals could work this well blew my mind, and caused me to partner with Beautycounter, because so many of my friends and family had the same frustrations with their skin but also were scared of the potential repercussions of using new products. I really believe in the Beautycounter skincare line based on my own experience and strongly believe it can provide a safe, but effective solution to your skin issues too
