My Bubbly and Beautycounter Party

Everyday Celebrations

When I first posted that I had become a Beautycounter consultant, I mentioned that I was committed to doing “direct retail” in my own way. I like the person-to-person aspect of Beautycounter’s sales model, but the idea of hosting a bunch of parties with people I don’t know? Kind of gives me the heebies jeebiesĀ (#introvert). That said, I am definitely not opposed to the excuse to host my own party! That’s why, a few weeks ago, I had some friends over for a “Bubbly and Beautycounter” afternoon. We lucked out with pretty mild weather, plenty of prosecco, and peonies in stock at Trader Joe’s :) Consider this the online version–welcome to my back porch!

I wanted to include a low-key way for people to try products they were interested in, so I set up a little “samples bar” featuring my favorite products. Guests could grab a treat bag (pre-filled with little sample containers) and a card they could use to reference after labeling their chosen samples, and then pick and choose anything they were interested in. No pressure, just fun :) The most popular choices among this crew were the Nourishing Cream Exfoliator, Balancing + Charcoal Mask, and Tint Skin Foundation.

So very grateful for these sweet friends! From left to right, that’s Stephanie (and Charlie’s BFF, Jackson), Ashley, Nicole, Morgan, me, Abby, and Rachel :)

You can shop the samples bar below! As always, if you have any questions about Beautycounter or are looking for a safer beauty product to address any particular skincare/makeup needs, leave a comment or shoot me an email :)






  1. Is Beauty Counter still doing the Target line or has that ship sailed? I remember that I wanted to look into that but then I forgot all about it! :)

      Unfortunately, that was only for a limited time–I wish it was still available! Let me know if I can recommend or help you find any of the products you were hoping to try on the Beautycounter site! :)
