Switch to Safer on a Budget

The main concern about switching to safer is that safer products are too expensive. I totally get it because I remember the first time someone told me about Beautycounter, I actually went to the website, decided it was too expensive to try and ordered the cheapest cleanser possible. I’ve done this with other brands as well but as I have continued to try brands and seek safer options for my whole family and my household, here are some lessons I’ve learned….

Consider the product’s longevity

Let’s just say that your current facial cleanser is $15 and it lasts for 4 weeks. You’re spending $3.75/week on your facial cleanser. Now what if you purchase a cleanser for $49 and it lasts for 3 months? You would be spending about $.25 more per week on your cleanser but getting WAY better age-defying results AND you can trust the ingredients’ safety! Your skincare may be more of an initial investment but you definitely get what you pay for!

My Daily Beautycounter Products’ Longevity

Beautycounter Counter+ All Bright C Serum

I use this consistently EVERY MORNING! It takes me at least 4 months to got through an entire bottle!

Beautycounter Charcoal Cleansing Bar

I use this every time I shower on my face, pits and body! I can get almost 6 months of use out of this one bar.*

Beautycounter Skin Twin Creamy Concealer

This concealer is a go-to, every morning product for me and my first tube lasted over 5 months**!

Start Small: One Product at a Time

Whenever I start a conversation with a group or client, I always discuss these two topics:

  1. What is your current daily morning/evening routine like?
  2. What skincare goals would you like to accomplish?

This allows me to evaluate which products that client needs to consider starting with or trying first Some clients are ready for a full, 4-5 step regimen…..others admit that they don’t even wash their face consistently let alone use an eye cream. Wherever you land, my advice is start small. Beautycounter offers a skincare quiz to help pinpoint which regimen would be best for your skin. Once we have an idea, based on skin type and desired results, it’s pretty easy to discuss a game plan on how to work up to a full regimen. Why? There are four steps that everyone needs to consider daily to have the healthiest skin…Cleanse, Prep, Treat & Protect. The goal would be to evaluate if what you’re currently using is both safer & high-performing (are you getting the results you want?) and then decide what to add to your first order!

Look for First Time Client Offers & Other Discounts

Most brands will offer a discount for first time clients, which is always a bonus! You might have to subscribe to an email list but I would totally do that for a discount! I also recommend checking into reward programs….if you’re obsessed with a product, might as well get rewarded for ordering it, right?!

How to Reach Me:

*Charcoal Bar TIP: place your charcoal bar in the microwave for a few seconds at a time until it is soft enough to gently divide in half with a butter knife. I keep the half I’m using in the shower in a soap holder placed farthest away from the shower head so it doesn’t get too moist.
**I was able to get several extra days out of this tube with the use of the 6″ Spatty for Lip Gloss.
