My FAVORITE skincare and makeup line is better for your health & it’s on sale!!!

Do you really know how safe your personal care products are? Switch to safer options and get 20% off my FAVORITE skincare and makeup!

 If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I LOVE Beautycounter products. They are significantly safer than any other skincare and makeup products on the market and the results are amazing without sketchy ingredients. My skin has NEVER looked better with or without makeup – and if you’re a long-time reader, you know that I struggled with severe breakouts for years. So the fact that I get compliments on my skin all the time, even from men and complete strangers, is AMAZING.

I am SO happy that Beautycounter is doing a sale — which they have NEVER done before — so others can try it. I’m not exaggerating when I say Beautycounter changed my life. I used to hate going to work since I was so ashamed of my skin. I wanted to stay home and wallow in my bad skin alone, which is embarrassing to admit but true. 🙁  And now I LOVE MY SKIN. That confidence is worth a LOT. And knowing the products I’m using are better for me long-term is worth even more.

Beautycounter promos are usually a free gift with purchase, but they’re actually doing a discount which is amazing.

From now until August 13, you get 20% off your order with promo code LOVE.

If you think about it, why wouldn’t use be careful about what you put ON your body? You eat healthy, you workout, so why would you slather harmful ingredients all over your skin to be absorbed into your bloodstream? Once you think about it and once you learn what’s in most beauty products, you can’t really unlearn it. And yes, even “fancy” well-known brands and “natural” brands use ingredients that can be harmful to your health. But Beautycounter is working to change that.

This is a great time to try Beautycounter if you have been thinking about it for a while or want to add more products to your collection. Be sure to enter the promo code LOVE at checkout to get the discount. Supplies are limited so I’d suggest shopping sooner than later. (This sale will be posted on Beautycounter’s social media channels tomorrow and I think things will sell out fast once that hits.)

Okay, let’s get into some of my very my favorite products! You can see everything I use on this page.


I personally love the Countermatch line – it’s so hydrating and makes my skin so soft. I also mix in some of the Rejuvenating products, including the Radiance Serum, since it was a game changer for my skin and it’s MUCH safer than retinol products (read my review here). Yes, you can mix and match lines!

If you’re not sure what products would be best for your skin type, check out the chart below. Or, fill out this quick questionnaire and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible with recommendations.

My Skincare Must-Haves: 

#1 Brightening Oil – 7 plant based oils that will not make you break out! They are full of antioxidants and fatty acids to fight aging. The brightening oil has added vitamin C for additional protection. This won Allure’s Best of Beauty!

Cleaning Balm is AMAZING for dry and dull skin! It’s a cleanser (think oil cleansing), makeup remover, intense moisture overnight mask and so much more. I LIVE by this in the winter months and when I visit Utah and my skin gets extra dry. You use a very small amount so it lasts FOREVER.

Charcoal Balancing Mask – This clay mask balances the skin by absorbing excess oil and drawing out impurities, and it reduces the size of pores. I love the way it feels when I apply it too – it tingles just a little and I love it!

Makeup Remover Wipes – These are MUST HAVE for post-workout and I always keep a package in my gym bag. They are super gentle and remove all makeup (and alllllll my sweat). There’s no need to rinse afterwards and they leave skin soft and hydrated, not stripped and raw like most face wipes. My husband uses these at night to wash his face too. 🙂 I reviewed them here.

If I had to pick only ONE skincare product to start with, I’d go for the Radiance Serum since you could add it into your existing routine.

Beautycounter Radiance Serum Review


I never considered myself a makeup junkie but I LOVE BEAUTYCOUNTER’S MAKEUP. It’s natural-looking, it blends easily which makes it easy to use and the colors are so flattering. Here’s some of my favorites:

Dew Skin is a lightly tinted moisturizer with SPF 20. This is my face sunscreen that also provides moisture and a bit of color. (Read my review here! It was my gateway Beautycounter product!)

Tint Skin Foundation provides more coverage than Dew Skin. Tint Skin is the first foundation I’ve EVER liked.

Nectar Blush is my favorite blush color. It’s basically the same color as the popular Orgasm blush from NARS that I used for years, but with much safer ingredients.

Ultimate Nudes is my go-to eyeshadow palette since it’s super versatile and has so many shades. They also have three smaller palettes if you want something a little less. (You can see my eyeshadow tutorial here!)

Liquid Liner is my newest obsession. I wasn’t a liquid liner person before this one, and it’s amazing how much it makes my eyes pop. I’m still working on straight lines 🙂 but this is the easiest one I’ve ever tried. If I can do it, YOU can do it. And it lasts through sweaty Crossfit workouts and humid runs!

Lipsheers and lipstick – Tommy will tell you that I have WAY too many but they’re just all so good!! My favorite sheers are Twig and Petal, my favorite Lipstick Intense is Backstage and my favorite gloss is Rosewood (it’s not nearly as dark as it looks!).

If I had to pick only ONE makeup product to start with, I would go for the Dew Skin.

Okay, this is a LOT of information, I know. But, I hope it’s helpful and I hope it helps you start to make the switch to safer products, or continue to use safer products if you’re already using products that are better for you and your family’s health. Again, Beautycounter has NEVER done a sale like this so don’t miss this promo. And keep in mind that they have a 60 day return policy – I have full confidence you will LOVE what you get, but if you don’t for any reason, you can return products for a full refund, no questions asked.

Email me if you have ANY questions – [email protected] – or leave a comment below.

I hope you have a great day! And yay for pretty skin and makeup!

    Do you have any pictures of your face before Dew Skin and then with Dew Skin only? I’m trying to get a better idea of the amount of coverage. I think I will want a little more than it provides, but the Tint Skin doesn’t have SPF :(. Thanks!

  • Maeve

    Terri, I live in Canada and am having difficulty processing my order because the Beautycounter site does not seem to allow for non-US shipping addresses. Does the company not ship internationally? Please tell me it does! 🙂

  • Molly

    Thanks for the info! Which of the collections is considered the most moisturizing for dry skin (I still can’t figure out from the friendly chart, not sure why ;)? Also, about how long does the dew skin last used 1x day?

    • Teri [a foodie stays fit]

      Hey Molly! For extra dry skin, go for Countermatch! And if you still need extra hydration after that, you could add in a face oil.

      Gosh, I’d say the Dew Skin lasts 3+ months?? Maybe longer? You only use a small amount!

  • Lindsay

    I have been struggling with zits on my forehead now for a little while thanks to all of the sweating from summer running and my visor … but whenever I have used products on my forehead it either gets super dry OR super oily (quite the conundrum)! Do you think I just need to get some of the face wipes for post workouts?

    • Teri [a foodie stays fit]

      Hey Lindsay! I would definitely try the face wipes post-workout. They shouldn’t make your skin super dry or super oily since they’re very balanced and designed for all skin types. Let me know if they help once you try them out! We could look at whole skincare routine too, which may help balance it overall, not just post-workout.
