A Beauty-ful, Beautycounter Holiday


Holiday Has Arrived at Beautycounter!

Ahh, fall. Pumpkin spice, falling leaves, football season, pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and…

Every company drops their Holiday line for that year. I love it!!

I love oohing and aahing over new products. I just even love looking at beautiful photos of them, like you’ll see here.

There’s something for everyone in this year’s collection.


These are amazing sets featuring limited-edition shades and triple-saturated color cosmetics alongside mini-sets of cult skincare favorites – and they’re all free of known toxins, parabens, and phthalates.


Also, can we talk about the packaging? No wrapping necessary – just pop on a bow (if you want!) and you’re set.

There’s more…


Those were just a few of the highlights in this year’s Beautycounter Holiday gift collection.

You can check out the whole collection here!


This year, give the gift of better beauty – for those you love, or for yourself. High-performing products minus the dangerous ingredients.


The kicker for me in switching to Beautycounter cosmetics was their industry-leading screening process for heavy metals in color cosmetics. I support the move for beauty companies to include safer options in their products, but look beyond the claims and make sure you’re getting what you’re asking for and not a greenwashed product. All minerals used in all makeup carry contamination risk, whether your product claims to be “natural” or not, but Beautycounter screens each batch 3 times to ensure metals levels are as close to undetectable as possible. ***Nobody else in the industry does this.*** 


In researching other brands that claim to screen for metals, not a single one of the other brands I contacted – not one – actually screens every single batch. Instead, they screen once, tell us their products are “tested,” and never screen again. Or, they take their suppliers’ word for it that the ingredients have been thoroughly tested. Every batch is different, so this claim is no guarantee for safety. Batch testing is a must, and Beautycounter does it!


Remember, Band of Beauty members receive 15% back in product credits and free shipping over $100. Beautycounter consultants always receive a generous 25% off!

Happy Holiday season!
