Beauty + Yay! It’s a Giveaway: Beautycounter

What’s better than a Friday? Giving away free stuff on a Friday. Pretty awesome, right?

Beautycounter Product Review

I’m pumped to be giving away some serious Beautycounter swag (a little jealous too – I had my eye on this set) thanks to my friend Meredith, more on that in a minute. When she initially contacted me about the line, I was intrigued. Since I am both shallow and honest, I will say that my initial lure was on account of their simple, clean packaging. Such a sucker for a nice typeface.

Yes, I know my initial lure was supposed to be the lack of harmful chemicals and yes, I am all about that but to be honest, it’s not something that keeps me up at night (maybe it should but ain’t nobody got time for that). But since I am willing to give just about any beauty product a try, I started off with a couple best-sellers: the Rose Water Spray and the Countertime Enlightening Treatment Pads.

The rose water spray is great but I am a little obsessed with the treatment pads. First off, I am all about anti-aging stuff and so despite being slightly out of the demographic there, I always gravitate to the anti-aging stuff. Gotta keep those wrinkles at bay. So back to the treatment pads, you’re supposed to use them morning and night but I just like to use them in the morning instead of a full face wash. They leave your face feeling fresh, clean but most importantly, NOT DRY or tight. I’m almost out of my initial order and I’m going back for round two. Here’s a tip if you order some: cut the pads in half. You don’t really need a full pad every morning so you’ll get double the use out of it.

My next addition to my routine was the Countertime Restorative Night Cream. I alternate between this one and a thicker Erno Lazlo one. I love that it’s not too thick and also smells great (sometimes night creams can smell weird or maybe it’s just me that thinks so). Oh yeah and that it doesn’t contain harmful chemicals. I’m pretty attached to my current face wash routine but I’ve tried the Beautycounter essentials when traveling (their samples are the perfect travel size) and really liked them. Just can’t give any extended thoughts on what I think of the whole routine.

    have been wanting to try this stuff! Key for me is a great moisturizer that smells normal if not great!

    • Baili – I would love to send you a small sample set of our Essentials face line if you would like to try it! I think you will love the feeling and light/fresh scent as well as the fact that it’s void of toxic/harmful chemicals. If you would like to try it, just shoot me an email or Facebook message and I can mail them to you!

  2. Gotta love those new beauty product finds!

    But I couldn’t live without my Lush face wash + moisturizer.

    • Josh – love your blog! Men love Beautycounter products too — you should totally check out our body line (body lotion and shave cream are two of my husband’s favorites!) and the Lustro Face Oils! I’m also happy to pop samples in the mail of our face products if you want to give them a whirl. Just shoot me an email or Facebook message. 🙂

    With three littles, the key to my daily routine is simplicity~ Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer and mascara is all it takes 🙂

  4. Chelsea says:

    I have recently tried the beautcounter line & was pleasantly surprised with how much I loved the products. Definitely will be giving it a try for longer than the samples last!

  5. Kim Pincombe Cole says:

    Right now I’m hooked on oil cleansers & serums. I’m really curious about those Beautycounter Enlightening Treatment Pads though!

    • Hi Kim!

      I am so with you…I LOVE oils and serums! Our Lustro Face Oils are amazing and each is tailored to a different skin need. #1 – calendula is great for sensitive skin, #2 – jasmine is great for dry/mature skin, #3 – ylang ylang & chamomile is great for “angry” skin — breakouts, rosacea, oily, combo. I also love our Radiance Firming Complex (serum) which is clinically proven to help with lines!

      The pads are amazing as well — I agree with Danielle on all she said. They leave your skin feeling fresh without the tight/dry feeling toners can sometimes have. I have samples of many pieces of the essentials and countertime lines but not the pads. However if you buy and don’t like, we have a 60 day money back policy. If you want to try the samples of cleanser/serum/moisturizers though, please shoot me an email!

  8. Leah H. says:

    I love my Clarisonic and cannot imagine life before it. Also, I have been on a huge Origins kick lately.

  9. Tara says:

    I love just about everything Kiehl’s makes.

  10. Emily says:

    I have to say beautycounter products are amazing! I could never imagine using anything else, since I’ve been introduced to such a great line! I have tried different products from this line and have been impressed with each and every one!! Reaping some health benefits while improving my skin!

  11. Alison M says:

    I am very intrigued by your post on these. I love Ole Heinreikson skin care but I’m always looking for something fabulous. Yes, some nightcreams stink!

  12. Kate says:

    These look great! Key to my beauty routine is making sure I wash my face and get all my makeup off each night!

    • Kate,
      I couldn’t agree more! I cannot go to bed without a clean face! I LOVE LOVE our Countertime Nourishing Cleansing Balm to get off all my eye makeup. It’s amazing and works better than anything I have found before. Our routine cleanser actually works really well too but i’m a sucker for balms. 🙂 I’m happy to send you some samples to try if you would like! Just send me an email with your address at Thanks!

      • Bridget,

        I couldn’t agree more! As I said in a comment above, I LOVE LOVE our Countertime Nourishing Cleansing Balm to get off all my eye makeup and cleanse my face at night. It’s amazing and works better than anything I have found before (and it moisturizes too!). Our routine cleanser works really well too but i’m a sucker for balms. 🙂 I’m happy to send you some samples to try if you would like! Just send me an email with your address at Thanks!

  13. Madeline says:

    The key to my beauty routine is getting my eyebrows filled in right with a mix of products.

    A great face wash is key to my beauty routine. 🙂

    I’m with you, love the simple packaging! I’m always on the hunt for gentle effective face products.
