With the launch of our new Brilliant Brow Gel, we’ve got brows on the mind and wanted to go straight to the guru, Kristie Streicher. Kristie is a co-founder of STRIIIKE, a cult-favorite beauty salon in Beverly Hills that she runs with her sisters, Jenn and Ashley, who specialize in makeup and hair, respectively. (Talk about triple threat!) Having worked with countless celebrities, Kristie has achieved brow-guru status—she’s best known for her feathered brow and believes in the power of the hair you leave, rather than the hair you tweeze (read: waxing is a no-no in her book).Continue reading “A Conversation on Brows with Kristie Streicher”

When the weekend hits, sometimes all you feel like doing is throwing your hair in a basic ponytail and calling it a day. But taking your updo to the next level doesn’t have to require a lot of effort—and with the right music and styling tricks as motivation, it can even be a ritual you look forward to.
Oils might not be the first skin solution you reach for when temperatures rise, but they can also be good in warmer weather—they’re actually lighter than the majority of creams. A few tiny drops will absorb instantly and seamlessly, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, balancing out oil production, and soothing dehydration. The end result: Plump and radiant skin that feels nourished, healthy, and hydrated.
But all-over application isn’t the only way to use these glow-getting products. We asked our Chief Artistic Officer, Christy Coleman, for some face and body oil tips that you might not have considered. Read on for her genius advice!

For one month, we’re detoxing with the beauty darling of the moment, charcoal—and we want you to join us! Take the 30-Day Spa Challenge alongside the Beautycounter Team and post your progress along the way. We’ve created a simple, 4-week routine for you to follow that includes our favorite deep-cleansing classics, including the charcoal mask and cleansing bar.

When used regularly, mineral-rich charcoal delivers a deep, purifying clean that nourishes, soothes and refines the skin. Absorbent yet non-drying, it draws out impurities and toxins, leaving a brighter, clearer and more even complexion. Like all of our products, our charcoal mask and cleansing bar are sourced with safer ingredients vetted by our rigorous Ingredient Selection Process.
