My Green Beauty Event with Beautycounter (and GIVEAWAY!)

I was thrilled to co-host a Green Beauty Event this past week with my dear friend and fellow blogger Karianna Frey from Best Bib and Tucker Blog.

We brought in ShiftCon panelist Lindsay Dahl from Beauty and the Beast: Navigating the World of Green Beauty to share with everyone some education on the cosmetics industry. Lindsay has been an activist for over 10 years and ran successful state level bans on toxic ingredients in consumer products in Minnesota, where they became the first state to ban the toxic chemical BPA. She is currently the Director of Policy & Partnerships at Beautycounter.

Not only did we learn a lot about the state of the beauty industry (click here to read about that) we were treated to some wonderful Beautycounter products to sample. As a company dedicated to transparency and safe ingredients I know I can trust their products whole heartedly.

A few favorites I have been trying are:


Routine Cream Cleanser – It doesn’t strip the skin like some other cleansers I have used. But surprisingly it still gets off all my makeup without the need for makeup remover.


Lustro Face Oil 1 – This is their least scented of the 3 face oils they sell. I am not a huge scent person and I don’t find this overpowering at all. I am using this in place of my night cream. It’s amazingly smooth and leaves my skin silky and soft but not oily. Super luxurious!

Day to Night Lip Gloss Holiday Collection – The lip gloss is quite nice. Not too tacky yet stays put for the whole morning. I love that the colors are sheer with just a tint of color. I tried to take a pic of me with the red gloss for you all.

I am looking forward to testing out their eyeshadows, eye pencil and concealer as well. I’ve been trying multiple brands of these items and still haven’t found something I feel comfortable using for the long haul.

Want to GRAB some of these amazing products? You can purchase Beautycounter products through our social by clicking here. And feel free to shoot Lindsay or I an email if you have any questions!

  1. Love this! The routine cream cleanser sounds amazing. It’s hard to find something that’s sensitive for your skin but gets all of your makeup off!

  2. What a fun evening it was! Thanks for the great recap and glad you like lipgloss!

  3. The face cleanser sounds interesting

  4. Love this giveaway !!! Definitely the lip gloss. As a new mom, I don’t have much time for a lengthy beauty routine, but I do have time to put on some fun lip gloss!!!

  5. The lip gloss for sure- my favorite color is a sheer red!

  6. The make up remover! I’m just starting to get into makeup and I’ve been looking for products that fit into the rest of my products– green, non toxic, and natural where possible. I don’t have a cleanser yet so I’m just scrubbing my face. 🙂 It’s a slow process to learn about all this stuff, but I’m loving it! I wanted to come to your event that night but had bible study. Thanks for the giveaway– I hope you get tons of traffic!

  7. The lustro face oil looks fantastic.

  8. The Lustro Face Oil looks like it would keep my face hydrated all winter.

  9. I want to try the lipgloss the most.

  10. I would have to say that I really would like to try the Lustra Face Oil 1
