It wasn’t long ago that I introduced you to a beauty brand that I’ve been drooling over – Beautycounter. Headquartered in Santa Monica, over the last few months Beautycounter has been making a splash in the Canadian market. Since it is a US based company, I’ve anxiously been awaiting the launch of many of its US best-sellers, in Canada. I’m so happy that I finally got my hands on some of these products!
Since charcoal is the newest obsession amongst beauty brands, mainly because of its purifying and detoxifying qualities, I was excited to try Beautcounter’s has two new products, the Purifying Charcoal Mask and the Charcoal Cleansing Bar.
Beautycounter Summer Launches
Citrius Mimosa Body Bar: Infused with a clean Citrus Mimosa scent, Beautycounter’s luxurious body bar contains organic shea butter and antioxidant-rich organic marula and mongongo oils. The finely milled formula lathers to gently cleanse, hydrate, and soften skin. I’ve been using this in the shower on my face and body and the scent really is intoxicating! This was actually the first product I wanted to try, as I’ve always been looking for a good body bar. This one’s quite large and solid (about 2-3 times the size of a dove soap), so it lasts ages.
Purifying Charcoal Mask: A mineral-rich mix of kaolin clay and charcoal, Purifying Charcoal Mask works to gently exfoliate, draw out impurities, and soothe. The formula helps improve skin’s overall condition by refining the appearance of pores and increasing elasticity. It a beautiful purifying treatment for congested skin and a 10-minute spa-grade facial. For the deepest clean, prep skin with Charcoal Cleansing Bar below.
Charcoal Cleansing Bar: The Charcoal Cleansing Bar detoxifies and absorbs impurities in your skin without drying it out, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. Made with antioxidant-rich, organic green tea and hydrating organic coconut oil, the gentle formula can be used daily on your face and body.
Sheer Lipstick: This silky-smooth, long-lasting formula is lightweight yet ultra-moisturizing, for the perfect mix of sheer colour and polished sheen. Every shade was colour-tested to ensure that each hue complements all skin tones. Plus, there’s no synthetic fragrance—just a sophisticated hint of vanilla planifolia. Layer Sheer Lipstick to intensify the colour, or try it under Lip Gloss. I’ve been obsessing over the newest shade – Terra a gorgeous neutral with pink undertones.
Lip Gloss: The Beautycounter’s moisturizing Lip Glosses apply smoothly—with no stickiness. Its unique teardrop applicator delivers the perfect amount of sheer, infinitely wearable colour and subtle shine. My faves? Dahlia and Buff!
