My Beautycounter Picks for Summer Skincare:
Dew Skin -This benefit-packed tinted moisturizer delivers lightweight hydration, a hint of sheer coverage, SPF 20 protection, and a luminous dewy glow.

Countersun mineral sunscreen mist and mineral face stick -Guard against sun’s damaging rays with this innovative, continuous mist sunscreen. Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and antioxidant-rich California Poppy, this physical formulation provides an effective shield from UVA, UVB & Blue Light rays, while being gentle and pleasant feeling on the skin. Sprays on white to help guide application, blends in easily and dries quickly without an oily residue.
  • Air-powered
  • Sprays at any angle
  • Reef-friendly
  • Why is it safer?
    Technology: At Beautycounter, we prohibit chemical SPF filters due to their high potential for skin irritation. We prefer to use physical sunscreens, more commonly known as mineral sunscreen.
    Formula: We use non-nano zinc oxide and evaluate its particle size to ensure there is no potential risk of respiration when sprayed and does not enter the blood stream to cause harmful effects to the body. We never use Octinoxate or Oxybenzone, ingredients known to contribute to the collapse of coral reefs around the world, making our sunscreens safer for both people and our oceans.
    Packaging: We’ve chosen a non-aerosol, bag-on-valve actuator system. While it delivers the convenience and even application of an aerosol, it is actually air-powered. So, no potentially harmful propellant chemicals are sprayed into the atmosphere or onto skin.
Lip conditioner -Nourish and protect lips with this ultra-moisturizing lip balm, formulated with soothing and softening avocado oil, shea butter, meadowfoam seed oil, and jojoba oil. It's also infused with calendula and chamomile oils, calming ingredients that help protect chapped lips and give the formula its subtly sweet scent.

Cleansing balm - What can't this wonder balm do?! If you find you've had too much sun, rub this onto red burned skin and watch the repair happen before your eyes. This will take the redness right out of your skin while simultaneously soothing it.

Countersun after sun cooling gel - This is a BRAND NEW product and I can't wait to try it! This lightweight after-sun gel cools on contact to help soothe skin post-sun exposure while boosting hydration (and its monoi scent is like a vacation in a bottle).

Style sea salt spraySuitable for all hair types, this lightweight spray helps create beachy waves, enhance curls, and restore shine with Himalayan pink salt and red algae extract. Spritz in on damp or dry hair for touchable, tousled texture.

Beautycounter just announced the Get Sun Set promotion- now through Tuesday with every $125+ purchase you will receive a free Summer Sun Set ($35 value) which includes a 3oz Countersun mineral sunscreen mist & 1oz Countersun mineral sunscreen lotion. These are the perfect size to slip into a purse for on the go activities!

My favorite natural cleaner {DIY}

When I "downsized" my cleaning products in favor of all natural and to reduce our exposure to toxic ingredients I ended up with a very pared down arsenal of supplies. Thankfully these basic pantry staples pull double duty by making cleaning easy and super affordable. As soon as I was well enough I cleaned everything with this simple mixture and rested well knowing the germs were eradicated and that my family wasn't subjected to harmful fumes and chemicals. Affiliate links used.

Recovering from Pneumonia // a wellness update

I didn't realize how sick I was when I found myself sleeping all day on a Sunday two weeks ago. Having now just recovered from the worst sickness I've experienced thus far in my adult life, I can tell you taking my health for granted is now something I have a new perspective about! But I'm getting ahead of myself, let me back up and tell this tale from the beginning.

The Spring Book Report

The Spring Book Report on Work it Mommy blog
I have not shared my book reviews in what feels like ages, my apologizes. Between Spring Break Family visit and the sickness plague that befell us, I'm just now catching up with life. In any case, here's a big book dump! Affiliate links used. A small commission may be received if you purchase an item through my links with no extra cost to you. Thank you for supporting my blog!

Stitch Fix #8 Spring Refresh

Guys. My house has been under quarantine. Or at least it feels like it was. I had promised to share this amazing Fix last week but poor Kinsey had an ear infection and a cough that seriously wiped her out. Thankfully she is well again and so here I am! Thank you for bearing with me :)

Reunited and it feels so good // Spring Break 2019

Wow. What a whirlwind the last two weeks have been! I say that with reverence because we packed so much into a week’s span that I gave myself the other week to recuperate, haha.

As you know, my mom and gramma spent a week with us but as a surprise, Brian’s mom, step dad and brother and sister also came to visit! For two days, all our California family were here in Arkansas together! The irony is not lost on us.

I joined Beautycounter as an Independent Consultant // Here's WHY

Last week I took a huge leap of faith and said "yes" to becoming a Beautycounter Independent Consultant. I'm not one to jump blindly into anything so this may come as a surprise (I know it surprised me!) but sometimes taking action on something you believe wholeheartedly in isn't that big of a risk. Affiliate links used.
