This Beautycounter Mattify Skin Finishing Powder is the perfect lightweight, oil absorbing powder for those who don’t like to wear a lot of makeup.
(The only product I am wearing on my face, besides eye makeup is this powder. It’s AH-MAZING)
Why Beautycounter? Is there really something to this whole safer skincare craze?
Food is only one piece of the puzzle when it comes to total health and wellness. It’s time we all start going beyond the food and making better choices in all areas of our lives.
After I started really focusing on the quality of food I was eating, and actually reading labels and ingredient lists (and not just skimming), it opened my eyes to ingredient labels of all types. I started reading the labels of my personal care products, cleaning products, skincare products and even my makeup. I didn’t know what most of the ingredients were, and forget about trying to pronounce them. But I wanted to know more — more about the products that I was putting on my skin, which happens to be the largest organ of the body.
I started looking up some of the products in my bathroom on the Environmental Working Group website and reading about each individual ingredient. I was shocked by what I was reading. Many of the ingredients in my every day personal care products were linked to cancer, allergies/immunotoxicity, organ system toxicity, developmental and reproductive toxicity and much more. I knew there had to be a better way… a safer way.
Switching to a non-toxic, chemical free home
In 2014, I started transitioning to a non-toxic, chemical free home with essential oils. They replaced many of the items in my medicine cabinet, first aid kit, and even my cleaning and laundry cabinets. Through essential oils, essential oil infused products and essential oil DIY recipes, we drastically cleaned up our lifestyle. Cleaning up my beauty and skincare routine seemed like a logical next step.
So in 2016, after a lot of research, I joined Beautycounter and the rest is history. To tell you the truth, I only signed up as a consultant simply for the discount. I never envisioned that I would feel so fired up about sharing this message. More than I care about makeup and skincare, I’m passionate about eliminating toxins from my home and from my life. It’s scary to think of how many environmental toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis. I certainly don’t need to add to that with my makeup, skincare, cleaning, medicine cabinet etc. It is just an added bonus that Beautycounter make safer products, that actually work!
Beautycounter Mattify Skin Finishing Powder
Before joining Beautycounter, I silently watched for many months before jumping on board. Their mission to bring safer skincare into the hands of everyone is something to behold. They are definitely a purpose driven company, built on integrity. I can’t stress enough how important this is to me. I am a firm believer in voting with my dollars. That being said… Once I decided to jump in, I did so with both feet.
I was intrigued by the Mattify Skin Finishing Powder even though I have not worn foundation or face makeup of any kind in more than fifteen years. (I only wear eye makeup). I don’t like my face to look cakey, or to leave my makeup on other peoples clothing when I hug them. Also, I just don’t really like the feeling of anything on my skin. It makes me feel like my skin can’t breathe. I like that fresh, natural look, but without looking shiny or greasy. That is where this powder came into play.
I ordered it and honestly wondered if it would die a slow death in my product graveyard. I can be kind of a makeup hoarder. I am IN LOVE with it. It makes my skin so even and soft, without giving it a white, caked on powdery look. I simply use it to absorb excess oil and grease on my face, much like how you would use a dry shampoo for your hair. In fact, you can even brush this through your hair and it will work exactly like a dry shampoo. BONUS!
Even, Radiant Looking Skin with a simple oil absorbing powder
If you were to ask Jon what the #1 question I ask him while out in public is, he would say “Do I look shiny?” If we were asked that question on a couples game show, we would nail it!! I seriously ask him all the time. Like I said, I want to look fresh faces, but I don’t want to blind people with my shine.
I apply it before I leave the house and then keep it with me in my purse in case I need to reapply it throughout the day. My face stays fresh and radiant looking – no greasy shininess. You have no idea what a win this is in my book. Of course there is the extra added benefit of it being an all natural product. Folks, if safer skincare is wrong, then I don’t want to be right.
