Why this Beautycounter Products Deal is Worth It

Face mist, face mask, and face oil for healthy, glowing skin. - Why this Beautycounter Products Deal is Worth It by popular Chicago beauty blogger Visions of Vogue

I’ve talked about it a little but Beautycounter has a “Clean Swap” promotion happening that ends tomorrow. And it’s AMAZING. You can get great quality Beautycounter products that don’t have any toxic chemicals for free. Here’s what this promo is all about.

My recommendation: The best way to take advantage of this Beautycounter products deal is to buy the Band of Beauty Membership, shampoo, mascara, and lipstick. Then in your shopping cart, select the face oil, a conditioner, and Countermatch lotion. You will also see a free gift of my favorite charcoal face mask ($49 value) get added to your cart automatically! Your order total should be $116 and you will get 15% of credit toward your next order making it under $100! And I love all of these product recommendations.

This is the third post in my new Ingredient of the Week series and I’m talking about phthalates! Luckily, they aren’t found in too many products anymore because the concerns about high toxicity are pretty widespread. Brands have worked hard to remove them, sometimes replacing them with a chemical equally harmful but not as well known. If you use plastic containers, hairspray, nail polish, or perfume, you will want to keep reading though.
