Holiday makeup Skincare

Holiday Drop

I can’t believe I am about to announce this

There are less than 40 days until Christmas!

Go ahead, have a mini-panic attack.

Now, take a deep breath in… and exhale.

I’ll show you some amazing gift sets and the best part is that you don’t have to go out to buy them.

Just click and they will magically show up at your door. 

Could it BE any easier? (cue my Chandler Bing voice)

Are you ready? Because I’ve been dying to show you all the new goodies! 

Beautycounter sure delivered on their holiday sets this year! New formulas, new scents, new shades, and now we even have beauty tools! I’m going to dive right in and share the sets that have already been launched. I’ll start with the items that make the BEST stocking stuffers.

Polish & Protect Lip Duo $34

Pamper your lips this winter with our conditioning treatment. Our lip polish is a sugar scrub that has organic sugar, grapeseed, sunflower, and jojoba oils. I use mine alongside my nightly skincare routine. Take just a pinch of sugar scrub and gently rub on your lips to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells- leave on for a few minutes so that the oils can do their work. Rinse off with warm water, dry them, and follow with the Better Balm (yes, it is better than those other balms that don’t work). Our balm is made with Murumuru butter which seals in moisture, and organic sunflower wax which hydrates and conditions. I put the balm on before bed and wake up with the softest lips. The polish is peppermint scented and the balm has a lightly sweet citrus scent. 

 

Golden Hour All-In-One Palette $65

This is a limited-edition get-glowing palette. It includes 4 eyeshadows, 1 blush, and 1 highlighter. It is also Beautycounter’s FIRST talc-free formula. Talc has never been proven to be harmful to our health, however many clients have requested talc-free makeup. Because Beautycounter listens, they were able to develop this high-performing palette using mica combined with other raw materials to create a talc-like finish. I’ve been using this palette for a few weeks now and I can’t tell much of a difference from our other powders, other than it’s not as highly pigmented so I do have to use a bit more of the product than I would with our previous eyeshadow palettes. The colors in this gorgeous palette are curated perfectly and look so great on all skin tones. 

 

The Jellies-Shimmers $39

Last Holiday, these little sweeties were a hit! I had clients requesting them back all year. Guess what? They’re back! They now come in all-new flavors including Cocoa, Caramel, Honey, Peppermint, and Sorbet. The Jellies are slightly sweetened with stevia and they have added some shimmer to them this time around. These remind me of the Lipsmackers from my childhood (I have a vivid memory of actually eating the chocolate flavored one! lol). These are non-sticky, lightweight, ultra-gloss finish, and so moisturizing. My kids love them! A cute beenie and these Jellies make a great gift for any child or teenager. 

 

Good Scents Body Butter Trio $49

Aromatherapy meets hydration with this limited-edition trio. This set of creamy goodness comes in 3 delicate scents: Calm, Uplift, and Balance. Personally, I’m not a fan of strong scents. Bath and Body Works is a concoction of toxic chemicals that make my head hurt. All of our scents are naturally derived, many coming from essential oils. Our body butter is made with sunflower seed oil, shea butter, and saccharide isomerate (a plant-derived hydration booster that also strengthens the skin’s barrier). So, not only are our formulas safer, they work better because we use the most beneficial ingredients. 

 

Good Scents Hand Cream Trio $34

Just like our body butter trio, this limited-edition set of lotions come in the same beautiful scents: Uplift, Calm, and Balance. The formula for these has grapeseed oil, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, and squalane (for hydration). These hand creams are the perfect size for your purse. Put one by each bathroom sink, or give them away as gifts to those who host your holiday gatherings. 

 

Countertime Radiant Skin Set $89

Beautycounter finally launched some beauty tools! I’m excited about this one. Face rolling is a technique dating back to seventh-century China. When it’s done correctly, its benefits are the same as getting a facial massage at a spa. Use the roller in upward strokes starting at the chin area and up the cheeks, temples, and forehead. Not only does it feel wonderful, but it also promotes circulation, decreases puffiness, relieves tension, and helps with serum absorption. The set also comes with our Tripeptide Radiance Serum from our Countertime skincare line (anti-aging skincare). This serum works hard to increase your skin’s firmness, improve elasticity, strengthen the skin barrier, decrease the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles, and increase radiance. That’s a whole lot of goodness in one bottle. This could be the most perfect gift for moms everywhere. 

 

Good Glow Body Duo $59

Give your skin some TLC with this set! Our improved Sugarbuff Body Polish now has finely-milled organic sugar to gently exfoliate. The scrub smells divine thanks to the revitalizing scent of lemongrass. The Body Glow Illuminating Lotion features our sustainably sourced mica for a subtle, yet illuminating sheen. It’s lightweight, absorbent, and has a lovely citrus chamomile scent. Pamper yourself with a DIY spa in your own home because this set is perfection. 

 

Bright Side Duo $75

Our best-selling, brightness-boosting treatments for 24/7 glow are now sold in a duo. The Counter + All Bright C Serum offers instantly brighter skin and promotes even skin tone. With an antioxidant-rich formula, the C Serum defends your skin all day from environmental stressors like pollution. It’s made with a potent blend of 10% vitamin c that is shelf-stable. I love it and use it every morning on top of my Countermatch serum. Next in this set is our most loved product, the Overnight Resurfacing Peel. This little bottle is a game-changer for your skin. Its multi-acid complex promotes cell turnover for a smoother complexion. It boosts skin clarity and radiance, it’s gentle yet effective, non-irritating, and it leaves your skin softer, smoother, and brighter! Put one pump on at night after you cleanse your skin, then leave it on overnight and let it work while you sleep. Rinse off in the morning. Sounds easy enough, right? Your skin will love this duo. 

 

Ultimate Renewal Bath Set $89

Bring the spa home with this UH-MAZ-ING set. Dry brush anyone? I’m new to the dry brushing technique but it has great benefits. Use it just like it sounds, brush your dry skin with gentle strokes to exfoliate dead skin cells, and to promote micro-circulation. The Sugarbuff Body Polish in this set is also found in the Good Glow Duo. Revitalizing lemongrass scent wakes up your senses. It is made with organic, finely-milled sugar that gently exfoliates the skin. The Luminous Body Oil in this set is a nutrient-rich, nourishing blend of botanical oils. It is non-greasy and absorbs easily. The scent is soothing rosewater. This is the ultimate pampering holiday set (and my absolute favorite). If you’d like to find this under the tree on Christmas morning, just give your husband my contact info and I’ll take it from there!
