My Top Picks from the Beautycounter Friends & Family Sale

Who doesn’t love a sale??  That’s one thing you will never, ever hear me say!

Beautycounter just kicked off their Friends and Family Sale this week and it’s the sale us clean beauty lovers have been waiting for all quarantine!! The sale only happens twice a year, usually at the beginning of Summer and again in the Fall and this one runs until June 23rd.

It’s the kind of sale where you stock up on all your essentials.  The kind of sale where you take the plunge and try something new because it’s on sale.  The kind of sale where you might be able to snag some really great deals!

This time around everything is 15% off (some exclusions) PLUS there’s a sale section where everything is 30% off.  No promo code needed, all products are already marked down!

If you’ve been thinking about checking out some safer beauty products and trying out something new from Beautycounter this is definitely the time to do it!  For those of you not sure where to start or just need some ideas here are my top picks from the Beautycounter Friends and Family Sale including some must-have beauty essentials that I love!


Countersun Sunscreen

Ok it’s summertime so you know I need to start with my favourite safer sunscreen!  This is the time to stock up on these for summer!  I love these mineral sunscreens because they are not only safe but work really well too! They are lightweight, go on smoothly, don’t leave a whitish/grey cast, and they’re water resistant too! And at a SPF 30 they work well and protect the whole family!  Choose from the Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30,  the Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Stick SPF 30 (this is a fave with my kids) and the Countersun Mineral Sunscreen Mist SPF 30 (also available in tinted).


Countertime Collection

This is one of Beautycounter’s latest skincare regimens and it is luxury safe skincare at it’s best!  Touted as the safer alternative to La Mer, this line is getting some rave reviews and results!  Made with Retinatural Complex, an exclusive blend of Bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine Rose this line is the cleaner and safer alternative to retinol. I currently use the Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream, the Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum and the Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream (say that three times!) as a night cream!  If you want to start with just one of these products I’d say start with the serum – I don’t think I could live without this!! I wake up in the morning with a glow!!


Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion

If you’re looking for an all around all season great daily moisturizer this is it.  I’ve been using this one for the last couple of years and I love it.  It has bio-mimic technology so it adapts to your skin and gives it as much moisture as it needs.  I have very dry and sensitive skin and this has been wonderful for me!


Overnight Resurfacing Peel

This magical serum has a cult following and for good reason!  This overnight serum is made up of 15 botanically-derived acids that lightly and gently exfoliate the top layer of dead-skin cells revealing a brighter and clearer complexion.  Not sure why it’s called a “peel” so don’t let that concern you as it works for most skin types. It honestly is a game changer!


Charcoal Mask and Charcoal Cleansing Bar

The Charcoal Cleansing Bar is a fantastic cleanser that really helps your skin feel clean and detoxed after you use it. This is my go to throughout most of the year but in particular in the summer time where my skin may need a bit more of a detox! And don’t be fooled it actually will last you about three months!  The Charcoal Mask is also fantastic at drawing out impurities in the skin, exfoliating and soothing it especially when you have blemishes.  Both are especially great if you have oily skin or breakouts but I find are gentle enough even for my sensitive skin.

No. 3 Balancing Spa Set

If you’re needing a little me time and self-care these days, this set is an instant at home spa kit!  You get everything you need for your facials with a mini version of the Charcoal Mask, Facial Mist and the Balancing Facial Oil.  This is also a great set if you are looking to try out some new products – especially since this is at 30%off!

Hand Cream Trio

These are another great pick at 30% off! It’s a set of 3 small hand creams that you can give as a gift or keep for yourself!  I know my hands can use a little TLC these days with all the handwashing and hand sanitizer I’ve been using!

Sheer Lipstick

These are my go to every day lipstick.  I love that they are very sheer and just give me a hint of enough colour but are also so easy to wear that you can just swipe on without a mirror.  Available in 11 different shades there’s definitely one (or two) that’s a match for you!  I have a few of these and I can tell you they are also super moisturizing!


Colour Pinch Cream Blush

Cream Blush is kind of new for me but I have to say I really do love the Colour Pinch Cream Blush – I’m loving the Hibiscus shade.  It’s super easy to apply and love that it gives you a nice dewy glow especially as a little pick me up in the summer over your tan.

Satin Powder Blush

Now if you’re looking for more of a matte or satin blush, you need to check this one out!  It has to be my favourite clean beauty blush out there and I’ve tried a few!  it comes in 7 different shades so there is something for everyone.  I love Melon, Guava and my absolute favourite is Nectar.  It is a total clean beauty dupe for the cult favourite Nars Orgasm blush – honestly it gives you that same golden pink glow!


Iconic Velvet Eyeshadow Palette

I’ll be honest while I haven’t been wearing a ton of makeup these days, this is one eyeshadow palette I will be picking up again.  I love the variety of colours and the different kinds of looks you can get with this one, and to be honest I’m starting to run low on a few of my favourite shades so this is definitely the time to restock. Especially since t’s on sale for 30% off and once it’s sold out it’s really gone!


I could go on but I think that’s the main ones, at least the ones I’m loving right now!   To shop the sale go to Beautycounter and let me know what you think of my picks and if you have any of your own!

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this particular situation and it does indeed provide me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, coming from everything that I have personally seen, I simply just hope when the actual comments pile on that folks stay on point and don’t get started on a tirade regarding some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I can not necessarily agree with it in totality, I regard your viewpoint. Greetings from Decaar Türkiye
