It’s that time of the year again…

Beautycounter’s Friends + Family is back!!!

WHEN: Today – August 12, 2019


  • Beautycounter hardly ever offers percentage-off sales like this one. Their promos are typically a free gift with purchase with a minimum order of $100+, so a straight-up discount with no minimum is a BIG DEAL!
  • It’s a great time to restock on your go-to favorites or try something you’ve been eyeing. Have you tried the Overnight Resurfacing Peel yet?!
  • Beautycounter has an amazing return policy! You get 60 days for a full refund on anything you purchase – no questions asked and free return shipping. You can’t beat that!!

With the sale kicking off today, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my updated beauty (and makeup) routine. As you’ll see, I’m definitely not fancy when it comes to beauty products. I like to keep it simple, but I also want products that will perform well.

My Simple Beauty (& Makeup) Routine for Acne, Melasma, and Anti-Aging (Beautycounter)
I’ve tried A LOT of products over the years for my various skin woes – acne (since puberty!), melasma (since Quinn was born), and anti-aging (since my late-30s) and these products are truly the best. The majority are Beautycounter with a few other favorite brands mixed in. Some of them I’ve used for years and years and others (Countertime) are fairly new, but kicking butt as far as results go!
