chanel meets whole foods and yep another give away

beautycounter

beautycounter

beautycounter is a skin care and cosmetics line whose mission is to get safe products into the hands of everyone. the line was born in an effort to create a safe yet effective line that everyone can use no matter your age or skin type. but it needed to work obviously and be safe; hence chanel meets whole foods.

i was lucky enough to try this relatively new beauty line and the word that kept popping into my head when trying to describe it was “clean”. I just felt clean whether it was using the body lotion or the am or pm face lotion.  katie bell, a consultant here in birmingham was kind enough to sit down with me and give me the 411 on beautycounter and also give me some statistics of  everyday cosmetics that are sitting on your counter right now. it will make you want to drop everything and head to Europe (but that is a whole other story)

as a breast cancer survivor, katie wanted to “clean up” and as she explained “food was easy” but the items we put on our skin was another story. did you know that our cosmetics are not regulated by the fda and that while europe bans over 1200 ingredients from its skin care products for being unsafe the united states only bans 11. yep? i know. may be it’s because there have been no laws regulating our skin care products since 1938. shall i go on…

 beautycounter consists of both skin care and cosmetics. i was fascinated by the skin care and the results that i’ve seen. the skin care consists of two different lines. for example, the essential line is a coconut base which can be used for all skin types. however the one that i focused on was countertime, their anti aging line, which helps lighten the skin and even skin tone. hello 40’s this one is for me.

but i’m not the only one that loves beautycounter; jcrew features their essential lotions on their website and gwyneth paltrow features beautycounter on goop.com.
