If you’ve been reading my blog for any amount of time or follow me on Instagram, then you know I’m all about moving towards a more sustainable life whether it be finding the best, affordable, clean beauty products, clothes, or products to use in my home, so this week I decided to become a consultant for Beauty Counter. I’ve actually been using their products for a few years now (I use their Dew Skin, tinted moisturizer with SPF, pretty religiously and have tried a bunch of other products, too) so I figured why not take the next step. While I don’t plan to use only Beauty Counter products and will continue to share all of the beauty products I use and love, I do use almost entirely clean beauty products whether it be for skin care, makeup, or hair care, and I’m excited to try a lot more of the super clean products that Beauty Counter has to offer!
From everything I’ve read, I would (and do) spend my money on the best, clean products I can afford that are going to either stay on my skin the longest or are going to make the most impact on my skin. So, while I have upgraded my face wash (I currently use this one from Indie Lee and am planning on ordering this Beauty Counter one for clear skin), I would rank that below purchasing a good quality serum (I’d choose one with Vitamin C like this one), cream (I want to order this eye cream– it has Bakuchiol in it, a natural alternative to Retinol, that I’ve been wanting to try for months but this eye cream looks great, too!), or a good resurfacing facial peel like this one (I use this exfoliating scrub from Acure a few times a week and it’s under $20 but it doesn’t replace a peel). I do want to upgrade my moisturizer, too (I would go for this everyday one or this one with SPF but I also want to try SuperGoop), but as I’d rather get a few of the other items on my list and think serums and creams are the most important places to spend your money, I’ll probably continue to use a less expensive (but still good) clean one like Skin Food from Weleda.
I tend to mix and match a lot of beauty products but I know my own skin (and can only speak from my own experience with my own skin). If you are someone who typically likes a routine or are looking for (and can afford) a full regimen (and are interested in an anti-aging regimen or have dry skin), try the Countertime regimen (this one includes the eye cream). As a general rule, remember to apply skincare products from thinnest to thickest!
