Being a Beautycounter Consultant: Why I Decided to Join + All About The Mission

If you’ve spent any time reading my blog, you know how important it is for me to lead a healthy lifestyle. I spend a ton of time learning about nutrition and fitness. It only makes sense that I have the same views toward skincare. But being a Beautycounter consultant? That wasn’t something I saw coming. Let’s chat. When I entered my 30s, I made a point to invest in my routine. I experimented with many products, some inexpensive and some luxury, but didn’t really fall in love with many. I felt like every product was lacking something.

About a year ago, I downloaded the DIRTY app. This handy tool links with the EWG and allows users to scan products for harmful ingredients. Wait, harmful ingredients in beauty products? Oh yes. There are TONS. It’s straight up frightening. Not so fun fact: The European Union has banned 1400 of the chemicals scientifically linked to cancer, hormone disruption, birth defects, and more. The United States, however, remains steadfast that buyers can make their own choices. Um, thanks?

Horrified by what I found out from the app, it was time for a Skintervention. After all, if I was going to spend all that time reading ingredient lists on the foods I ate, why wouldn’t I do the same for products I was putting ON my skin?

I scanned every product I owned. Those with multiple dangerous ingredients were immediately tossed; some were kept with the intention of using up and then replacing. I knew it might be an expensive process to overhaul all of my skincare so I wanted to be smart about it. Around the same time, a couple of friends mentioned Beautycounter products to me. “I keep hearing that!” I’d say, whenever someone mentioned how much they loved the charcoal mask. But what the heck is this company and why are people obsessed?

The short answer: Beautycounter is a beauty brand with the mission of getting safer products into the hands of everyone. Banning over 1,500 ingredients, they are setting a new standard for beauty products.being a Beautycounter consultant never list ingredients to avoid

them too. Fast forward about 2 months and here I am, a Beautycounter consultant. My blog has been a platform for me to talk about what I love, whether it be a food product or fitness routine. And now I have something that I’ve made a mission to share: Safer beauty for all.

What I can promise is this: I’m not going to be up your bum trying to sell you products you won’t use. I will never bullshit you. This blog is not going to turn into a beauty site. I’m going to do what I always have done: share with you what I love and believe in. And boy oh boy, do I love this stuff.

I had been holding off on posting this until I was 100% ready to answer any questions you might have. I got really lucky with my timing because Beautycounter *just* announced a special you won’t want to miss.

    I earned my dietetics degree decades ago and was really into fitness at that time too, but they of course didn’t have the knowledge back then about the harm all our chemical products were causing. I’m so glad you’ll be focusing on safe products as I am also constantly learning to stay current. Perfect theme this month too with our Earth Day awareness.

    • aw, thanks!! and yes it ties perfectly in with Earth Day awareness!
