Beautycounter: My New Routine

I’ve been searching for awhile for a new skincare routine. Before now, I had a hodgepodge of products that I used all together and was relatively happy with the results.

Well, now that’s completely changed! Some of you might know/remember Reagan Hardy Howell from Southern Proper (yes, she was one of the founders!) and I was a campus belle for them in college.  She has since left SoPro and is now a full time mommy + Beautycounter consultant. So as you’d imagine when such a successful businesswoman reached out to me about another brand, Beautycounter, I couldn’t resist trying it out!

Before we even get into my new routine – it goes without saying that when their branding reminds me of Chanel and packaging is lined with red (hello Louboutins!) – I have found my kind of skincare just by looking at it (kidding, sort of!), but it is beautifully done.

It’s no wonder that Vogue, InStyle & J.Crew have all been raving about it. Beautycounter has been receiving a lot of attention lately and for good reason.  All the ingredients are 100% toxin and paraben free and NEWS FLASH – just because some products may say “organic” and “natural” doesn’t mean they are free of chemicals. BC also has a mission to get safe products into the hands of everyone, whether that be CVS or Neiman Marcus.

And I don’t know about you but considering the skin is our largest organ, I intend to take pretty good care of it. (You can read more about their story & mission here.)

My Routine – Essentials Face Collection


#1. Routine Clean Cream Cleanser – I use a dime-size amount and massage into face or use with my Clairsonic and rinse.

#2. Rosewater Uplifting Spray – I spray 3x on my face. Need a mid-day pick-me-up? This is perfect and quite refreshing!

#3. Everyday AM Hydrating Cream +Lustro Face Oil 1 – I blend 1-2 drops of the oil & 1 pump of the cream in my hand and apply to face.

#4. Anytime Every Cream – I apply a small amount to the eye area and I’m ready for the day!


#1. Gentle Exfoliator Polishing Cream – Some evenings, instead of the cleanser, I use this 3 times a week.

#2. Repeat Steps #2-3 from Day (Rosewater/Oil) but replace the AM cream with the Every Night PM Hydrating Cream

#3. Finish again with Anytime Eye Cream.

Now, some of you might not be too keen on investing in non-drugstore skin care but it’s important to note that BC’s products are used sparingly and last 4+ months so …you do the math (well, worth it!).

    When I clicked over to Beauty Counters Website I feared the price tag, typically non drugstore products are way out of my budget. But these prices are very reasonable! I’m not sure I can part with my face wash as I rely on it to keep my breakout free (10% salicylic acid) but I would love to try their moisturizers and cream!

    • Kathleen, these products are so gentle on your skin, especially the face wash. Give it a whirl, and please let me know if you have any questions. I’m more than happy to personally consult you and help you select something. 🙂
