Beautycounter Products Review

Posted by in Reviews | 0 comments








Beautycounter is a movement for safer beauty! Currently the industry is self regulated, which means basically unregulated, with the last federal law being passed in 1938 regulating personal care products….78 YEARS AGO! We are a huge stand for getting ingredients potentially harmful to human health out of ALL products, not just ours! We also have the strictest ingredient screening process in the industry currently banning over 1,500 ingredients and are EWG verified. We have the dynamic duo – high performing AND safe products which includes: skin & body care as well as a full cosmetic line.


When you purchase from us, you are making a much bigger impact.

As soon as I found out about the mission of Beautycounter, I felt excited to make a massive social impact. My goal was to find a job I wanted to jump out of bed every day to do and that has happened!! I love bringing together powerful women, leading a movement, having complete freedom, & knowing that what I do every day makes me a better mom to be and creates a safer world for everyone!

Other things to note:


  • Beautycounter is very stringent with their approved ingredients and specifically don’t use roughly 1,500 ingredients in their products. View their selection process here.
  • Over 80% of our products are natural or plant derived. 
  • Beautycounter doesn’t use GMO’ and only sustainable sources, they batch test for heavy metal contamination (which is unheard of and not required) for our makeup, ask for certificates of purity. Source almost all of our materials in the US. They also share EVERY ingredient they use, are 100% transparent, and are EWG verified which speaks volumes.




About Melissa 



What really drives me is a desire to inspire women to live an abundant life in all areas. I believe that we all have the ability to design the life of our dreams and should stop at nothing to achieve that. Growth is never ending and my priority is to continuously take myself on & live outside my comfort zone so I can guide others to do the same.


I have over 11 years experience in B2B sales and recently left a very successful career as a medical device representative to pursue my life dreams. There was a fire inside of me that knew I was meant to make a huge difference and do something much bigger with my life.


This started with a 2 month honeymoon around South America and, upon return, turned into a full time commitment to being an entrepreneur sharing the mission and products of Beautycounter. This allows me to make massive social impact while having complete freedom of time and earning a living! Truly a dream.


I also volunteer my time as a life coach for the Self Expression and Leadership Program at Landmark Worldwide and recently created and lead an impactful women’s workshop called “Create Your Ripple”. I embrace the Colorado lifestyle to the fullest and constantly seek adventure. I hold a B.S. in finance from University of Tampa where I played 4 years of collegiate softball as a pitcher.

Like many of you, I’m a wife and mom—and, like many of you, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. As I applied sunscreen, lotion, and any number of beauty products on myself and my kids, I never thought for a second they might not be safe: After all, I thought, we live in a country that regulates everything. So imagine my surprise when I learned that when it comes to the personal care industry, that’s simply not the case. Companies are allowed to use harmful ingredients and make their own judgments about safety.

And so I started Beautycounter, a company devoted to progress. Here you’ll find a wealth of empowering information about ways we can all make the world healthier, along with safer products you can trust. Because we all deserve better. Our vision is bold; real answers are never timid. Help us put truth back in beauty.



Are Your Products Vegan?


Most of our products do not contain ingredients sourced from animals such as musks, oils, and egg- and milk-derived ingredients. There are a few exceptions, which are listed below—lanolin, carmine a beeswax. Our Peppermint Balm Lip Conditioner and Calendula Balm Lip Conditioner contain lanolin, a natural wax derived from sheep’s wool. Lanolin is boiled out of wool that has already been sheared, and no sheep are harmed in the production of lanolin. We use high quality lanolin from sheep in Australia and New Zealand. It has been filtered and contains no unsafe biological material.


We use carmine as a red colorant in some of our color products. Carmine is a rich, natural pigment that comes from crushed beetle shells. It has been used for hundreds of years, and is safer than some synthetic reds. We also use beeswax in some of our products, and hope to establish relationships with US beekeepers dedicated to keeping bee populations healthy. As always, we will disclose all ingredients on our website and on our packaging. Vegans, people with allergies, or customers with other preferences/concerns can choose to avoid certain products with ingredients that are not right for them.
