Just for February, I'm feeling exceptionally proud of Beautycounter and want to share the love in FREE STUFF! Hurry, you don't want to miss this giveaway.......Shop my site NOW!



Lustro Face Oils
The FIRST person to spend $250 on my website will get a FREE Lustro Face Oil in the number of their choice!! A $64.00 value. If you haven't used a face oil before, you are in for a treat. It not only holds in moisture but it also works as a fantastic primer for makeup - Skin Tint makeup especially.




Three luxurious face oils with unique scents to incorporate into your beauty regimen. All Lustro Face Oils promote the appearance of beautiful, healthy-looking skin.








Vibrant Eye Perfector


The SECOND person to spend $250 on my website in products will get a FREE Vibrant Eye Perfector cream, a $55 value. This is the best eye cream I have ever used. It does not bother my contacts and the fine lines smooth away over night.


89% OF WOMEN REPORTED UNDER-EYE PUFFINESS WAS REDUCED AND FINE LINES WERE DIMINISHED.











Touchup Highlighter Pen
The THIRD person to spend $250 on my website in product will get a FREE Touchup Skin Concealer Pen in the shade of their choice! A $28 value! This highlighter pen is better than the YSL I've used forever.




Touchup Skin Concealer Pen is a formula with a higher pigment load so it can be used alone or on top of foundation to target dark circles, redness around the nose and mouth, and imperfections. Unlike many other concealers that move or shift, ours stays put for fuss-free, flawless wear. Plus, the click-pen and brush applicator make it easy to apply just the right amount, even on the go. Formulated with knotgrass extract to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and photo-aging so skin looks brighter, clearer and instantly more even.

My Story: Why I'm Passionate About Beautycounter

For the past 15 years or so, I've been on the Hypo-thyroid roller-coaster. For those that don't know what it's like to live with Hypo-thyroidism it's very much like PMS gone horribly wrong. Mood swings, weight gain plus the joys of brittle hair (or hair loss!!) and thin nails. Some days can feel like a day with the flu, some are a day out of the life of Sybil (google it, young ones) and some days are just normal - and those are GREAT days.

Like most people with Hypo-thyroidism, I have to take a daily synthetic thyroid hormone pill. For the rest of my life. That's the easy part. The hard part is dealing with the fluctuation of the thyroid. Think of the thyroid as the quarterback of your endocrine system (collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things). A bad quarterback means a bad game, no one on the team performs at its peak. The synthetic hormone keeps the quarterback in top shape.

However, things can cause the thyroid to fluctuate. Stress, diet, exercise and the chemicals we put on our bodies (called Endocrine Disrupters) directly affect the thyroid. The past two years of personal stress caused my thyroid function to worsen. As it is, every two months I have to go for a blood test to check my levels. I'm hoping to level it out by taking care of me.

Putting harmful chemicals on our skin puts the carcinogens and endocrine disrupters right into our system. Typically, these chemicals are processed through the liver. The liver is made to remove many harmful chemicals but the skin does not filter through the liver, therefore carcinogens go directly into our system. 

When my dear friend, Carrie, introduced me to Beautycounter and I did a little research on the company and its mission to put safe products into the hands of everyone, I was sold. Endocrine disrupting chemicals were in every product I was putting on my skin from shampoo to blusher. Tip to toe. I could eat clean, exercise and still sabotage it all with my moisturizer.

Beautycounter products are all 100% safe for use, harmful cancer-causing endocrine disruptive chemical free. And the products perform! I have gladly switched from my Keratase, Dior and Bobbi Brown products as Beautycounter outperforms each and every one. If I can use these products for my health and do my part for the environment, then it's a win-win.

I'll update my thyroid journey. If I can just get the exercise part of this kicked into gear.....

Shop now! If you have a thyroid disorder or are worried about putting carcinogens into your system you must try Beautycounter. Plus, there's that money-back guaranty thing but you won't need it. Really.

Early Onset Puberty from Everyday Products?

This is why I'm passionate about Beautycounter. Endocrine disrupters in our everyday beauty products harm not only the thyroid (my issue) but also our children. Early onset puberty and menopause is a direct result of chemicals we use on our skin every day. Try the Beautycounter Kids body set cause puberty sucks as I recall. 

Shop the Kidscounter Body set here and keep them kids for as long as possible:

I have a new favorite! Body Wash!

As a new consultant for Beautycounter, I'm trying each product so I can give an informed opinion of each one. Oh my gosh! The Wash body wash is incredible. It almost beats my favorite, the Clean shampoo!

It not only cleans ever so gently but effectively, smells great, is 100% toxic free but it BUBBLES like Mr. Bubble did when I used that as a kid. In the shower, it's a performer but in the tub? Just a little dab is like a tub of bubble fun for this adult woman who likes a soaker tub bath to de-stress. Amazing. And my skin was so soft afterwards! Smells citrusy good.

You must try this product. Like, now!

Look Familiar?

Look familiar? No, it's not the YSL Touché Éclat highlighting pen. It's Beautycounter's Touch Up Skin concealer and highlighter! It's not the $41 expensive designer brand, it's better. For $28 it gives  great coverage to hide the under-eye darkness while highlighting the cheekbones and any areas that need a lift.

It's a bargain and it performs! I get the lightest shade for maximum highlight. If I had to choose three products I couldn't live without, this is definitely one.

I'm Rocking the Tint!

I've been wearing Tint Skin Complexion Coverage for a few days now and I love it! It's Beautycounter's answer to tinted moisturizer but it is so much more! Not only is my face not dry (as it can be during the winter) but it is NOT OILY which is why I have stayed away from tinted moisturizers in the past. The oil slick.

I chose Linen for my naturally white pallor and it gives me a gentile warm glow. The coverage is light to medium, covering my trouble spot and yet it is so forgiving! It's not like a base coverage that leaves lines or, shudder, your face a different color than your neck. Yikes.

It's the perfect amount of coverage for me without leaving an oily shine. Comment now and I'll send you a sample of Linen Tint Skin! (limited to the first 3 to comment)
