So it’s my Birthday week, and I always believe it’s better to give than receive 🙂 Welcome to my very first Giveaway on the Blog!
This past weekend I hosted a Beautycounter Brunch for my friends Charity and Linda. It was the most lovely afternoon! I got messages from the women who made it to the party commenting on the positive energy that just floated in the air, how much they learned, and what a fun and enlightening afternoon it was! It was such a beautiful time that I want to continue the positivity by giving away one of the free products I earned from hosting the party (…which I didn’t even know I got…I just wanted to spread the word about this amazing company with my friends! Talk about an added bonus!)
If you’re not familiar, let me give you a quick rundown on this amazing company! Beautycounter creates SAFE beauty products and cosmetics. Safe you ask? Yep, I bet you thought what you are already using is safe…not necessarily. The US has NOT passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used in personal care products since 1938! That’s 78 years, which would have been the time my Grandmothers were young girls! That’s back in the days that kids were still given asbestos to play with and paint still had lead in it…are you as scared as I am?! Beautycounter has personally banned more than 1,500 harmful ingredients from their products – all while ensuring they are still high performing AND luxe – and that they are! Many women describe the products as “Chanel Meets Whole Foods”, and I can’t disagree.
I’ve always believed in quality beauty products. I’ve purchased my makeup from department stores since I started wearing makeup. I can’t say I’m the type that would sacrifice good quality for safety if the safe products weren’t as good of quality…sorry, not sorry, I’m honest…but with Beautycounter, I don’t have to sacrifice anything! Their products not only measure up, but stand ahead in my eyes because they ARE safer than what I WAS wearing.
Okay! Okay! I’ll get to the Giveaway already! I’m going to let you choose one full-size product from three of my favorites!
1.) Lip Sheer – One of Beautycounters Best Selling products! Lightweight, moisturizing, long lasting lip color! You pick the shade, but may I suggest my personal fave, Petal (shown here)
2.) Touchup Skin Concealer Pen – This product is AMAZING! I’m a Mom…Concealer is so necessary! I’ve searched and there is none I’ve found better, and I’ve tried A LOT!
3.) Squeaky Clean Kids Counter Body Wash – For the selfless Mama’s out there who care more about keeping their kiddos toxin-free than themselves, this one’s for you! Beautycounter has an entire line dedicated to children, and *UPDATE* a new even gentler infant line is coming out soon!

I’m going to close this post by sharing some of the photos from the Beautycounter Social. My crazy talented friend, Andrea, who has one of the most beautiful singing voices I’ve ever heard, was our fabulous makeup artist!
Not that these women aren’t already beautiful without the makeup, but c’mon, how gorgeous do they look all done up?! And free of all the harmful chemicals!! Getting your makeup done is always a special treat for a woman and I’m so thankful Andrea agreed to help us all out!
Thanks to everyone who came! If you are interested in ordering, the party is still open, and you can do so by clicking this Beauty Counter link 🙂
Be Blessed + Be A Blessing
