I was recently introduced to Beautycounter Skincare products by my aunt a few weeks ago. Many of you know I’m always on the lookout for amazing skincare products. I struggle with breakouts quite a bit so I love finding new products that won’t make me break out. There are so many products out there that use ingredients that aren’t the safest, but I’ve never taken the time to do any research on the products I’m using. Well…thanks to Beautycounter I now know only about 10% of the 10,000 chemicals commonly found in personal care products have safety data. Yikes! Good thing Beautycounter has banned more than 1,500 ingredients and sets their product standards to the absolute highest so you know the products you’re using are 100% safe!
I’ve been using a few Beautycounter products over the last few weeks like the Color Sweep Blush Duo, Hydrate Body Wash and Lotion, and Touchup Skin Concealer Pen. BUT…my absolute favorite product is the Peppermint Lip Conditioner! I used to put on Balmy Nights from Victoria Secret (anyone remember this lip balm?!) a long time ago, but have never found a product quite like it until now. My lips feel so soft every morning when I wake up after wearing the peppermint lip balm each night.

My name is Brooke and I started using BeautyCounter’s Routine Clean, Exfoliator, Everyday Moisturizer, Number 3 Oil, Tinted Moisturizer, and Foundation by recommendation from my consultant.
After immediate use I started to develop tiny white bumps covering my entire face. I spoke with my consultant who suggested it was my skin “detoxifying” and just to give it time. We followed up regularly and the condition only slowly worsened. She checked my hair products and other makeup products suggesting some outside chemical was the bad actor.
Fast forward two months later and I come completely COVERED in HUGE, RED bumps. MY ENTIRE FACE. Apparently I was allergic to the products, and then developed a SEVERE bacteria infection from it. I have never EVER had more than maybe 5 pimples on my face at a time? I am now completely covered in them, and I wake up to at least 5 new ones per day. My consultant realized her mistake – TWO MONTHS TWO LATE – and booked me an appointment for a dermatologist.
That was one month ago. I am on an oral antibiotic, prednisone (a steroid), and using a facial antibiotic to try to clear up this ridiculous horrific looking infection.
BeautyCounter has reimbursed me for all of my orders… but really they should be paying my medical bills at this point. I am telling you – the products RUINED my skin and is taking now over a month for me heal !! I can’t leave the house. And I have NEVER had an issue like this before.
STAY FAR, FAR away from these products if you have sensitive skin. They use a pyramid scheme to sell their products, and consultants have no idea what they are talking about. My customer service agent also made it clear that this was not the first case they had in which the products destroyed a client’s skin.
