What are the best gifts of all? The ones that come with meaning. When you give the gift of Beautycounter, you’re not just giving a beauty product. You’re giving something essential to everyone you love. A sense of care and protection that lasts far beyond the holiday.  In this Beautycounter Holiday Review and Video… I’ll show your the gifts that mean the very most. Here’s to safer beauty.  

The new holiday sets launched last week and I ordered EVERY SINGLE THING! Why? Christmas gifts!!! Plus, I seriously wanted to get most of it for myself because they sell out fast! Like video? See me unveil the sets HERE in this Beautycounter Holiday Review and Video or you can shop HERE now.

These are amazing sets featuring limited-edition shades and triple-saturated color cosmetics alongside mini-sets of cult skincare favorites – and they’re all free of known toxins, parabens, and phthalates.

Also, can we talk about the packaging? No wrapping necessary – just pop on a bow and you’re set. (And those custom-designed tins! Swoon!)


And the price points mean there’s something for everyone! Whether you’re looking to start your holiday shopping early or wanting to grab yourself a treat, these are SO worth checking out ASAP.

Grab a gift for yourself – these sets are majorly discounted from retail!

This is the biggest holiday launch yet with the biggest sellout risk – so don’t wait until Black Friday to shop.


Must-Haves That Are Perfect for the Safer Skincare Newbie 

Charcoal Essentials  $49

The Beautycounter “gateway” products. The charcoal mask is one of my favorite skincare products of all time – it’s perfect for spot treatments, for smoothing the skin, and for keeping pores small and clear.

The charcoal bar is a fantastic detoxifying cleanser that helps remove impurities without stripping the skin.


Best of Beautycounter $89

This set of four best sellers is formulated to hydrate, purify, brighten and balance skin-all while easily tucked into your toiletry kit, gym bag or work tote.

Set includes: No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil, Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion, No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask and Cleansing Balm. 


Instant Awakening Trio $89

The perfect pick-me-up for dull, tired skin (mama’s rejoice!) This trio contains everything you need to reveal your most radiant skin, perk up tired eyes, and enjoy a dewy, pearlescent finish-all over. Set includes: Eye Revive Cooling Masks, Instant Glow Illuminating Cream and Overnight Resurfacing Peel.


High-Performance Makeup without the Junk 

Take it from a former MAC and Sephora devotee: These long-wearing makeup sets are industry-leading in pigmentation, saturation, and safety! What we put on our bodies should be safe – without sacrificing performance.

All color cosmetics are batch-tested for heavy metals and none of the products contain the harmful ingredients in traditional high-performance options.

And the packaging is pretty phenomenal, too (your eyeshadow palette should make you happy every time you see it).

The kicker for me in switching to Beautycounter cosmetics was their industry-leading screening process for heavy metals in color cosmetics. All minerals used in all makeup carry contamination risk, whether your product claims to be “natural” or not, but Beautycounter screens each batch 3 times to ensure metals levels are as close to undetectable as possible. Nobody else in the industry does this.

In researching other brands that claim to screen for metals, not a single one of the other brands I contacted – not one – actually screens every single batch. Instead, they screen once, tell us their products are “tested,” and never screen again. Every batch is different, so this claim is no guarantee for safety. Batch testing is a must.


Transforming Duo $30

The perfect pairing for a naturally beautiful pout gives Dior Lip Glow a run for its money.  This new, universally flattering Transforming Lip Tint creates your custom hue upon application. Layer it with the new Crystal Gloss for high impact shine, or wear them separately.

First Light Highlighter Palette $49

Highlight your best features with finely milled pearlescent powders in three naturally luminous shades, best-selling halo and new shades, Golden and Sunkissed- for a variety of glowing looks. Comes in an elegant mirrored compact.

Necessary Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette $89 ($116 value)

This palette is incredible! There are 18 new neutral shades – 9 cool tones and 9 warm shades, perfect for every skin tone. It includes matte, satin, and metallic and shimmer finishes with pigmentation that will put high-end conventional palettes to shame. Beautycounter recently reformulated their shadows with cocoa seed butter for a safe, smooth, lux application!



Stocking Stuffers

Break these apart and stuff all the stockings or hoard everything for your favorite person this holiday season! (And it’s perfectly fine if your “favorite person” ends up being you.)

Glow and Go Mini Oils

$30 ($51 value)

Not sure which oil is right for your skin? This mini set is a steal under $30 and comes with all three facial oils. Plus, a cancer patient undergoing treatment at UCLA receives a set for each one sold. It’s my mission to sell one a day for the rest of the year and help 75 patients feel pampered!

Hand Cream Trio $30

I’ve never been a fan of hand cream until I tried Beautycounter’s formulation. It’s lightweight, never greasy, absorbs quickly, and keeps my hands from chapping all winter.

Looking for the perfect gift for men, kids, teen or baby? We’ve got those too!

    1. Color cosmetics are where I feel Beautycounter truly shines and their lip products are the best I have ever tried, safe or otherwise!
