Everyone is shopping early this year
You’ve probably caught on by now that shipping is been taking longer now and everyone is doing 90% of their shopping online (okay, I don’t actually have the real statistic), but you get the point. 2020 has changed everything…
Beautycounter puts out an incredible limited-edition holiday collection year after year, and this year they, appropriately, focused on self care.
Self Care Gifts For Everyone On Your List
There are new shimmery (talc-free and responsibly-sourced mica) makeup shades, our best-selling safer skincare products in easy-to-gift boxes, our coveted hand creams (for all of that hand washing), mini clean deodorants (OMG, finally!), and much more. Let’s dive into these self-care gift sets..
Safer Self-Care Gifts
The Clean Deo Minis
This is a “soft launch” of our new deodorant that’s been anticipated for years! Get a taste of each of the four yummy scents with the Clean Deo sampler! The full-size Clean Deo is scheduled to launch in January, which means this is the perfect way to try it before you pick a full-size favorite. I’ve been using it since the beginning of the summer and I. Am. A. Fan! First clean deo I have ever loved enough to permanently switch.
Long-lasting and aluminum-free, the formula (which won’t stain clothes) neutralizes odors and keeps underarms feeling fresh. Four scents include: Crisp Sequoia, Fresh Coconut, Soft Lavender, and Clean Rose.
Note this photograph is the full-size one – the minis are petite and great for sampling before you buy a big one this January!
Softening Hand Duo
The perfect hostess gift: a limited-edition hand wash and lotion in a fresh neroli scent. The set, which comes in elevated frosted glass bottles, cleans hands without over-drying and provides fast-absorbing hydration for soft, pampered skin. Plus, the bottles are huge!
As a scent person, I just love these! I wish they were available all year round. This year’s trio features three scents: Calm (sweet spice), Balance (similar to last year’s Mandarin Violet), and Uplift (a gentle lemon lavender). I love to break these sets up and give them as gifts together (a body butter + a hand cream), or pair them with other gifts like mugs and scarves.
Hand Cream Trios
The same scents as our body butters, these are great mixed and matched! Buy a set of 3 of each, and give them to 3 teachers or 3 hostesses in your life. These are universally loved!
Ultimate Renewal Bath Set
This luxurious set features a dry brush for micro circulation and exfoliation, a Lemongrass Sugarbuff Body Polish and a Luminous Hydration Body Oil. Know anyone who needs some 2020 TLC (maybe you)? This set is the ultimate self-care gift.
Good Glow Body Duo
This is a similar, smaller set with the same Body Polish + Illuminating Body Lotion that has responsibly sourced mica as an illuminizer!
Counterman Fresh Essentials
Thomas’s skin has improved immensely since using products from the Counterman line, and even I use the shaving cream and charcoal body wash regularly – it smells so good! This set with a shampoo, body wash, and (new) charcoal deodorant is a great gift for any guy in your life.
GREAT SKINCARE GIFTS
Countertime Radiant Skin Set
Our popular Countertime Radiance Serum with a special tool: a zinc alloy facial roller to ensure serum is delivered deep into pores.
Polish & Protect Lip Duo
A nourishing balm in a pretty tube plus a peppermint sugar lip polish. I keep the polish in my shower and might accidentally eat the sugar crystals when I use it!
Special Edition Cleansing Balm
The multi-tasking Cleansing Balm is a must for extra dry skin. It can be used as a makeup remover, cleanser and hydrating overnight mask. This Special Edition is double the size of the normal version, but NOT double the price – such a deal!
CLEAN MAKEUP GIFTS
Luminous Lids Cream Shadows
A quick swipe of these shimmering cream shadows gives eyes a cheery twinkle. Four lustrous, silky shades glisten with responsibly sourced mica. Shades include Soft Gold, Onyx, Amber, and Amethyst.
Golden Hour All-in-One Palette
Beautycounter hasn’t had a complete face palette in a few years and this one is GORGEOUS! It has four eye shadows, a blush, and a highlighter. I am for SURE keeping this for myself! The shades are perfect for the cooler months, and the highlighter will keep you glowing year round. There’s even a tiny mirror hidden inside, so this palette is also great for keeping in your purse or travel bag.
10% of the proceeds from the sales of it are being donated to Kailash Satyarthi Children’s Foundation dedicated to eradicating child labor and child exploitation.
Winter Warmth Duo
This set delivers a shimmer that will have people complimenting your glow! (It happened to me the first day I wore it!) The shimmery Highlighting Powder is a weightless talc-free formula and a rose gold Cream Eyeshadow illuminates the lids.
Beautycounter debuted the Jellies last year and I was shocked by how much I liked them. They provide a nice shine, I love the flavors, and they’re easy to apply without a mirror. I planned to give them away as gifts and then kept them all myself (and then bought more to last me all year)! This year’s shimmery scents are: Cocoa, Honey, Peppermint, Caramel, Sorbet. These all have a hint of sparkle! They also come in the Brights in delicious, Stevia-sweetened scents (minus the shimmer): Orange Cream, Raspberry, Sweet Plum, Fresh Mint, Red Pear.
Beyond Gloss Trio
Our brand new Beyond Gloss in three shades – one for clear shimmer (Iris), one for everyday pink (Lilac), and one for Zoom parties (Wildberry). They all have the yummy Mandarin Violet scent – I am obsessed!
Bright Side Duo – SOLD OUT
This set was so popular it sold out!! But you can still buy the two products inside, as they are our two most popular products for a good reason: the Overnight Resurfacing Peel and All Bright C serum. This duo works for all skin types and can be added to any skincare routine. This is a great gift for moms, friends and sisters – these are the products I recommend to anyone who asks me where to start with Beautycounter. Read more about them here!

Is it possible to place an order living abroad? Does Beautycounter ship to Switzerland?
Kath Younger says
Unfortunately they do not have international shipping yet, so the only way to do that would be to have an American friend send it to you
Any idea what became of the crisp sequoia scent? It’s not available on the BC website.

I think it was for the holidays only, but it might be back next year.
