Can you believe 2020 is almost over? I am SO ready for the holidays and I am super excited for the new BeautyCounter Holiday Collection, most of which launched TODAY!
As some of you may know, I’ve been using BeautyCounter for my non-toxic make up for a little over a year now…
When I decided to truly make the change and start my journey to a non-toxic lifestyle, it was extremely difficult to find clean make up products with the high performance that I was accustomed to.
Unfortunately, at least for me, all-natural products just didn’t always cut it when it came to make up. And if you’re reading this, you’re probably in the same position that I was in a year ago; when I found myself having to compromise quality for something nontoxic. It isn’t fair, huh?
Aside from their Never List (click to see more of what’s on the list), something I love about their mission is that they want to make clean beauty available to everyone. They are a certified B corporation, collectively working with other companies and nonprofits to create a positive change in the world… Not just by offering safer products, but by using sustainable packaging and sourcing responsibly.
So before I get started on what’s all in this year’s collection, let me remind you that all of the products are available for a limited time only! I don’t know about you, but I HATE when I miss out on something that I regret not purchasing. I think you know the feeling…
If you see something you like, be sure to order it right away! Because once they sell out, they are GONE.
Band of Beauty
Additionally, if you end placing a larger order, I highly recommend adding the Band of Beauty Membership. It’s only $29, you get a free welcome gift, free shipping over $100, 10% back on every purchase redeemable for more product so it pretty much pays for itself. Only the benefits last all year long!
The 2020 Holiday Collection
Bath & Body
This two piece set is great to split up! You get the Body Glow Illuminating Body Lotion. It’s formulated with sustainably sourced mica that creates such a natural sheen on the skin, but it does NOT stain clothes which is amazing! It’s lightweight and leaves your skin soft and glowing.
It’s also created argan and avocado oils as opposed to propylene glycol (PEGs) or ethoxylated emulsifies which always run a risk of cross-contamination with carcinogens. The mica also rigorously tested for heavy metals and trace contaminants.
In this set you also receive a Sugarbuff Body Polish, which is a new and improved formula. It’s made with finely-milled organic sugar to gently exfoliate the skin! No synthetic fragrances or polyethylene beads which can contain harmful ingredients and add toxins to the ocean water.
This is also great to split up for teachers or stocking stuffers! It’s a light weight, non-greasy formula in three limited-edition scents: Calm, Balance, and Uplift!
BeautyCounter hand creams are always formulated without petrolatum, cyclic silicones, and synthetic fragrances. As always, our essential oil-based fragrances are tested for all trace contaminates. BeautyCounter is committed to transparency that discloses all of our fragrance ingredients, so you know exactly what is in our products!
This could also be great to split up, especially for those healthcare workers or teachers (those who probably wash their hands 8946525619816x a day). It is rich and so super moisturizing, and they come in the same limited edition scents as the hand creams.
And as a bonus surprise! BeautyCounter is gifting us the Special Edition Cleansing Balm. It is a huge tub at 125 ml. It is a little more than normal but you get nearly double the amount of product!
This is one of our most loved products, it not only cleanses your skin as it removes make up, but you can use it as a face mask as well!
This little kit is perfect for the upcoming winter! I always struggle with chapped lips when the weather seems to change overnight.
It comes with the Lip Polish and the Better Balm which are formulated without mineral oil, paraffin, acrylic acid, petrolatum, and propylene glycol.
All you have to do is gently massage a small amount of the Lip Polish onto your lips, then rinse off with warm water and apply some Better Balm.
The Better Balm is made without PEGs, retinol and parabens – none of the yucky stuff!
This is perfect for the mom in your life – even if that person is you!
You get the CounterTime Tripeptide Radiance Serum and a luxury Turn Back Time Facial Roller.
The serum is a full-size bottle (normally $79 on it’s own)! The roller pairs perfectly with serum, helping to promote product absorption and distribution while stimulating the skin.
This mimics a facial massage to help alleviate tension in facial muscles, deliver increased circulation, and reduce the appearance of puffiness, promoting healthy, energized, and youthful-looking skin. Facialists/estheticians swear by these!
The zinc alloy material has cooling and depuffing benefits to soothe and wake up tired skin. Stick it in the fridge to cool before use then starting at the chin, roll up and out toward the cheeks. Then continue rolling outwards from from the middle of the forehead, from the inner to outer corners of the eyes, and from the base of the neck towards the chin.
This is another great option to split up! These are travel sized versions of our best-sellers, recommended for all skin types.
One is the Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel. It’s made without synthetic fragrances, PEGs, or formaldehyde releasing preservatives that can be found in many other peels. Often times companies use high levels of resurfacing acids that can cause irritation so BeautyCounter uses both resurfacing and soothing acids to help cell turnover and improve skin texture. Gently but effectively!
The other product is the Counter+ All Bright C Serum, one of our newest and most popular products out! This is formulated with vitamin C, vitamin d, turmeric and camu camu. It is clinically proven to even out your skin tone and improve radiance.
Seriously, it’s a good one.
So, when I think of BeautyCounter, I think of safe make up. I know they have so much more than that but truly, it’s what brought me to them in the first place!
But why is it safer?
Safer Ingredients: No mineral oils, no cyclic silicones, no synthetic film formers, no retinyl palmitate (vitamin A)—which may be linked to harmful effects on human health. Also no BHT or plasticizers both of which may be linked to harmful effects to human health and environmental impact concerns
Stringent Screening & Safety Testing: They test each batch for heavy metals to ensure it meets their strict safety measures. BeautyCounter is also highly selective when it comes to pigments! Out of the 65 cosmetic colorants allowed in the U.S., they only using 18 colorants in the color cosmetics – the only ones that meet their standards.
These were also available last year during holiday!
There are 5 different jellies – Raspberry, Red Pear, Orange Cream, Fresh Mint and Sweet Plum. They are sweetened with stevia and perfect for breaking up and gifting multiple people as stocking stuffers or added goodies. These are great for younger teens as well!
The Jellies – Brights: $39 (7.80/each, available OCT 28th, members only until November)
This is a second set available this year, 5 different jellies which included Cocoa, Caramel, Honey, Peppermint, and Sorbet!
This is great for all the ladies in your life. You can split this one also and they come out at about half of the original cost! There are 3 new colors, a clear, berry, and a soft lavender – in a limited edition Mandarin Violet scent.
These provide a BeyondShine Filter Effect, which is a unique light-bending technology that captures a rainbow of colors and filters it to provide for multidimensional luster and an ultra-glossy look, without the stickiness.
The BeyondSmooth Conditioning Complex helps to lock in moisture to leave lips looking and feeling soft and smooth. And our innovative applicator is a teardrop shape to help pick up the perfect amount of product and hug the contours of your lips for seamless coverage.
This amazing palette is basically 6 products all in one. It comes with 4 eyeshadow colors: stain champagne, reflective white, satin ruby, and reflective pink. You also get a blush, rosy pink with a little bit of sheen, a gorgeous highlighter which is a warm golden pink!
It features a silky, buildable and blendable formulation with universally flattering shades. It has a built-in mirror for on the go and it is also our first talc-free palette!
Winter Warmth Duo -$45 (available OCT 28th – members only until November)
This is one of the sets that I am the most excited about! It is perfect for adding a warm glow to the skin even in the dead of winter. You get a highlighter in rose gold and a cream eyeshadow in pink nude.
I LOVE a subtle shimmer on my eyelids and cheeks. The limited edition cream eyeshadow is not one you want to miss!
Cream Eye Shadows – $39 (9.75/each and available OCT 28th, members only until November)
These are a “come-back” this year, sooo many of you wanted them again! You get a set of 4 shimmery and creamy eyeshadows: Soft Gold, Onyx, Amber, and Amethyst.

I know that for me at least – I struggle sometimes sharing about something as “unimportant” as make up, when there are bigger issues to be concerned about. However the reality is that we’re still using these day-to-day products in our lives and now more than ever it is so, so important to care about what’s truly in them.
2020 has been such a tough year for all of us and I couldn’t think of a better way to end this terrible year than to treat your family (or yourself) to a little love and self-care!
I think the importance of health and wellness both physically and mentally, has truly become so much more apparent. And there’s no reason that we shouldn’t be able to make better decisions about the products we use for our self-care.
With, 2021 fast approaching… I hope that with whatever it might throw at us, you make yourself and your well-being a priority!
