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.
And since I just LOVE to share with ya’ll I am giving away the following:
