Helping make the world safer for women and girls is in Beautycounter’s DNA. We aim to be bold in upholding our core values by defending women’s and girls’ right to live free from harm, no matter what form it takes. We believe that all women and girls should be able to live their lives fully and confidently without fear. That’s why we’re proud to have supported The Girl Effect with a $100,000 donation inspired by our 100 Lashes campaign earlier this year.
“I’m the ultimate problem-solver and painfully persistent and dedicated,” says Rachel Blumenthal, mother of two, and founder and CEO of Rockets of Awesome, an up-and-coming children’s clothing company. “The biggest challenge was knowing that if I didn’t make it happen every day, nobody else would.”
Boarding a plane soon? You’ve probably noticed that flying leaves your skin more dry than usual and can cause breakouts. That’s because recirculated air in plane cabins creates an environment that pulls moisture out wherever it can, including your skin. So whether you’re planning a getaway to hit the slopes, jet-setting internationally, or flying a few states over to spend the holidays with family, your skin is going to feel it.
This holiday season, we’re obsessing over lovely layers and perfect pairs… for your lips. Lip Sheer + Lip Gloss will give you a rich pop of color and even more options to play with. Together with Christy Coleman, our celebrity makeup artist and Head of Innovation at Beautycounter, we’ve crafted subtle and bold combinations that are universally flattering.
From runway to your way, learn how to recreate this season’s beauty trends with our newly-revealed palettes, Winter Dream and Winter Warmth. One cool, one warm, each palette is packed with a mix of best-selling and never-before-seen eyeshadows, blushes, and one totally new highlighter we’re calling Feather for its subtle, luminous sheen.
Face it, what’s in your facial cleanser really does matter! You wouldn’t want to remove the ‘bad stuff’ (makeup, dead skin, sweat and dirt), and then rub harmful ingredients from your face wash back into your clean skin. The skin on your face is thin and delicate, effectively absorbing whatever it comes into contact with. That’s why it’s important to be mindful of the ingredients you’re putting on your face and to always choose safer, cleaner formulas.
The holidays are fast approaching! Have you made your gift-giving list yet? As excited as we get about making wish lists, we think there’s definitely something to the saying that it’s better to give than to receive. Every holiday season at Beautycounter, our staff gets so excited about who is going to get what because it means we get to share what we love with the ones we love—beautiful, effective, safer products. This year, we’ve upped the ante with a holiday shop filled with gorgeous gift sets for everyone on your list, all wrapped up in festive ruby-red packaging. To make it easier for you, our staff reviewed all of their favorite, most giftable products and compiled their own list of cleaner cosmetics and skin care for everyone on your list. So, without further adieu, we give you the Beautycounter Gift Guide. Happy gifting!
Today, Beautycounter CEO Gregg Renfrew attended the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions (HELP) hearing, Exploring Current Practices in Cosmetic Development and Safety. Beautycounter sent the letter below to offer our perspectives on the significant challenges safer and natural beauty brands face, and to once again call for dramatically increased regulation of cosmetic ingredients. While there is still much work to be done, we are taking great steps toward our mission of getting safer products into the hands of everyone. Together, we can accomplish anything.
The days are getting shorter, the air crisper, and, inevitably, our skin drier. As much as we love the turning of the season, this is the time of year when we find ourselves scrambling to drench our skin with as much moisture as possible, and fast—holiday travels are just around the corner and airplane travel + winter make for the worst skin-drying combo. Lately, we’ve been turning to our Cleansing Balm a lot. Packed with nourishing butters, oils, and vitamins, it’s a best-selling facial cleanser and makeup-remover for good reason. But we’ve found plenty of other uses for its ultra-hydrating super powers, too. Try these six surprising ways to get the most out of your Cleansing Balm and beat the cold.
To say it’s been an exciting time here at Beautycounter would be an understatement. Last Monday, we launched our Limited Edition Beautycounter for Target Collection in 1,500 Target stores across the U.S. and online at Target.com, and it’s been a total whirlwind ever since. “We wanted the Target guests to have the best of what Beautycounter has to offer,” Gregg Renfrew said. “I hope that the Target guest walks away, first and foremost, realizing that we are a company on a mission to get safer products into the hands of everyone. I want people to be empowered with information about the need for safer ingredients, and know that there’s an opportunity to build businesses and create entrepreneurs on the Beautycounter platform.”
So if you haven’t already, drop into your nearest Target store and check out the collection before it’s gone!
