On the hunt for the best place to start making your Switch to Safer? Look no further than our Beautycounter Favorites! Look, I know from first hand experience that it can be intimidating to know where to begin (and once your learn what’s in conventional products, you’ll have a hard time using those products again…), but we took a poll and these six products are our favorites and let me tell you why.

Oh, and before I forget, for each Favorite you add to your cart, you get a choice of a free gift- three favorites- three gifts… while supplies last, so don’t delay!

Back to what I was saying:

The Cleansing Balm is a workhorse. It does what it says it does- clean and moisturize your face- but wait- there’s more!

  • Removes makeup
  • Use as an overnight face mask
  • Soothe burns, cuts etc
  • Eczema relief
  • Use on cuticles for dry hands
  • Really, anything that seems like a good idea!

Look, the $80 price tag may seem steep- but I bought a jar in August that I’ve shared with people and am just now getting to the bottom of. I’ll happily pay $10 a month for that kind of performance…

The Charcoal Bar changed my skin. I’d love to tell you that now that I’m solidly in my 30s, my skin is naturally blemish free, but that’s not the truth… I use it every shower with the Nourishing Exoliator to follow and I’m please to say my skin looks amazing. If you have hard to gift guys in your life, this is a good one too- manly, but effective.

To go with the charcoal bar, I can’t live without Face Oil. Seems nuts, but my skin is even, soft, moisturized and blemish free. I rotate between the three- #1 Brightening for a boost of vitamin C, #2 Plumping for those wrinkles that are creeping in, and #3 Balancing for my teen areas. One bottle lasts months with daily use.

Sunscreen is a no brainer. We need it every day, rain or shine, 365 days a year (unless you’re not actually going to go near a window or go outside at all…). This one isn’t greasy, has now harmful chemicals, doesn’t leave you looking like Casper the ghost, and performs. A free gift for something you need anyway? Sign me up.

For a little more fun- the Tint Skin and the Lip Sheers deliver the quality you expect from high end brands without the potentially harmful, hormone disrupting chemicals. I’m a linen in the Tint Skin and love the Twig, Terra and Coral lip sheers. Hey- who doesn’t love a little pop of color without the lead?

Remember, each of these come with a 60 day, empty bottle guarantee, a free gift, and every Switch to Safer has a lasting impact on your health, and every dollar you spend tells the cosmetics and personal care giants that you care what’s in the products you put on your largest organ…

Happy shopping!
