Alright folks… summer is officially here! I made a video this past weekend on my Safer Beauty by Kel page to share my Top 10 favorite summer products with Beautycounter and since today is my 1 year anniversary with the company I thought I’d follow that video up with a blog post! But first, what is Beautycounter? I’m glad you asked 😉 In a nutshell, it’s a mission to get safer products in the hands of everyone! We are an education-based company that creates safe and effective personal care products (skin care, babies/kids products and bath and body along with cosmetics) where every ingredient used is meticulously tested for safety. It is our belief that you shouldn’t have to worry about the ingredients in your every day products, but sadly due to the lack of regulation in our country, only a handful of harmful ingredients are banned. Only 30 to be exact. Other countries ban hundreds and often times thousands of ingredients that we allow on our shelves, in our homes, and on our bodies. When you consider the fact that what we put on our skin enters our blood stream within 30 seconds, that is a BIG deal! The kinds of ingredients we ban from our products are known to cause hormonal, developmental and behavior issues and many are even cancer. This is why I have fallen in love with the Beautycounter mission and have joined it to help effect change for better beauty! So without further ado, here are my summer top 10 and why!
1- Lustro Shmmer Oil. Why? It gives your skin, face abd hair a bronzed glow that looks natural and guess what, it doesn’t make you smell like chemicals either.
2- Citrus Rosemary Body Oil. Why? First and foremost it keeps the bugs away! Not to mention it smells wonderful and makes your skin feel silky smooth and moisturized.
3- Citrus Mimosa Body Lotion. Why? It smells like a natural creamsicle (enough said) and the texture is a perfect mix between non-greasy and incredibly moisturizing. Lack of toxic ingredients = your skin actually absorbs the product instead of it sitting on top of your skin.
4 and 5- Charcoal Bar and Mask. Why? These products work together to detox your skin by drawing out oil, dirt, makeup and sweat from your pores. Results smaller pores and a clearer complexion. Not to mention your face will be cleaner than ever before! Use the mask for deep cleaning and the bar for maintenance.
6- Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer. Why? You get a light coverage, moisturizer, SPF, and anti-aging ingredients such as vitamin c, peony root and black currant all in one. Oh and it also won a Best of Beauty award with Allure Magazine in 2015 🙂
7- Caramel Cream Blusher. Why? I love the color that this nude/peach creamy formula gives to my cheeks. Makes me look sun-kissed instead of caked with makeup. Bonus- you can use it on your lips too if you’d like!
8- Matte Bronzer. Why? Gives you a very “natural not orange at all” tanned look and absorbs oil/shine making it a 2 for 1 bronzer and mattifying powder!
9- Bare Shimmer Lip Gloss. Why? It’s our newest product, rosegold color that I just can’t seem to get enough of. Plus it’s moisturizing and not sticky at all… I’m in love!
10- Sea Salt Texture Spray. Why? Gives you natural beach waves with little to no product or effort. It also doesn’t make your hair dry or crunchy. Smells like the real beach too, not a fake one.
