Healthier Skincare & My Skin Story

I haven’t truly opened up on Lexi’s Clean Kitchen about the years I have spent struggling with my skin.  My skin has always broken out and been super sensitive. For as long as I can remember I have been self-conscious about going out without wearing make-up, and just feeling badly that my skin was STILL an issue.

I figured this was just the way it was and that sadly my skin wasn’t going to ever change.

As I got a bit older, I became more and more upset about my skin. I would constantly say, “I’m in my mid-to-late twenties and my skin still looks like I’m a teenager.” If any of you have struggled with skin issues in your adult life, you can attest that it is such a frustrating journey.

I always knew I wasn’t using the best products that I could be using on my skin, nor was I totally taking care of my skin the best way that I could. But I kind of ignored all of that and attributed everything to hormonal issues. And while I have and do struggle with some hormonal stuff, I knew I could probably be doing more to help my skin on the surface.

Then, a few of my favorite blogger friends that I truly trust told me about BeautyCounter. I had heard a lot about the products for the past year or so, but never ended up trying them out. But I’m tired you guys. I was tired of my skin looking bad and continuing to spend money on the same products that weren’t working for me. So a few months ago I placed my first order, with some guidance from friends who use the products as to what to buy. I’ve spent the last few months experimenting with them and I couldn’t be happier so far. My skin has really turned itself around! I feel comfortable going out without makeup, and feel so much better about the products I’m using on my face and body.

For the past year or so I have been transforming our home away from non-toxic and harmful products, and I am beyond excited to have found a line of skincare and make-up that works like the real deal, without any of the chemicals that are in conventional products.

I am truly beyond excited to share with you what I’ve tried so far, and how you can get your hands on the products yourself!

These are the products that I personally use on a regular basis. If you have any questions about these specifically, don’t hesitate to ask. I’d be glad to share about their weight, texture, coverage, and anything else you may be wondering about!

What makes the products different?

Beautycounter has banned more than 1,500 ingredients, all while ensuring that their products perform like conventional products, and that they’re as indulgent as any luxe shampoo, lipstick or oil in the market.

✓ While Beautycounter’s products aren’t 100% natural, they do forbid the most awful of the commonly used toxic ingredients. They have a NEVER LIST, which includes some of the 1500+ ingredients that you’ll NEVER find in their products, such as Parabens, Phthalates, and Formaldehyde.

✓ Beautycounter has developed a rigorous ingredient screening process, looking for data on skin irritation, carcinogenicity, reproductive toxicity, and more.

✓ Every single Beautycounter product is rated between 0-2 on EWG’s Skindeep database, which is the most amazing go-to resource for product safety!

I am here to be transparent with all of you, just like I do with my recipes and the food I eat (and don’t eat). I do still use beauty products OTHER than Beautycounter. I’ve made this particular page specifically as a running list of the products that I’ve been loving by Beautycounter, but I do mix other products- both beauty and skincare, into my regime! With that said, if I try a Beautycounter product that I don’t like, I’ll be sharing that here, too.

Also, please remember that I’m here to help! I am passionate about making my home and life less toxic, and want to help you do the same. If you’re interested in learning more about the products, have any specific questions about the products I’ve used, or are curious about how to join the company, please feel free to send me an email at 

Lastly, if you purchase any Beautycounter products through one of the links on this page, I officially become go-to resource for all your questions, and concerns. I’ll never bug you, but know I’m here for you!

  • Why no retinol or retinyl palmitate? Thought these were good vitamin A products that help with skin cell turnover?

    • Hi Barbara!

      Both of those products are a 9 (high hazard) on the Skin Deep database. You can check out more information through that link.



    • Retinal A is ok for skin if you never go in the sun! I didn’t know this until I started working with Beautycounter as a consultant. I guess if you use Retinal A on your skin, and go in the sun your chances of getting skin cancer goes up.

    Hi Lexi,
    I am excited to have found this, like you I am taking chemical cleaners out of our home. I would like to do the same with our skin care etc. I am excited to try these products. One of my biggest problems is under eye puffiness, I have tried so many different products that just don’t work. So I will be looking at the under eye cream.

    Thank you!!

  • I would love to know your routine–I also say that I’m 27 and still have the face of a 13 year old!! SO frustrating!!

  • I am going to order a few things through beautycounter..glad I can use your link. was you use any of the tinted moisturizers? I was going to purchase one as well but wanted to get thoughts. 🙂 Thank you!

    • You will love the products Kristen, and orders placed by next Thursday over $50 will receive Charcoal mask samples from me! I JUST ordered the tinted moisturizer a few days ago, so I can’t say for sure just yet, but people absolutely love it! If you need other recommendations though, let me know!

  • Lexiii!!!! Congrats on your spankin’ brand new cookbook!!! Also, can I still become a consultant if I do not have my own website?

  • I have mature skin with hormonal problems and would love to find a natural skincare line. Do they have sample sizes of various products to purchase?

  • Hi Lexi! I’m working on cleaning up my skincare, and have issues with sensitive skin, redness, and breakouts. How do I figure out what products at BeautyCounter will be the best ones for me to use? I don’t see any kind of skin care finder on the website, but maybe I overlooked it. Thanks!
