Target, the Bomb Balm sale, and More

Hi Everyone!

Ahhh, September! I hope that back to school and the seasonal change is all treating everyone well :-) It is always bitter sweet to say goodbye to summer, and I am hanging on as long as I can, but cheering on my favorite teams (Go Vols! Go Packers!), wearing my favorite comfy pants, chowing on our family favorite Honeycrisp apples, smelling all foods with pumpkins, and eating soups and stews all make for a better transition. Brady started Kindergarten (half day), and I am not teaching for the first time in 11 years allowing me to drop off and pick up and spend so much more time at home with Blake as well as Brady. I have been savoring every moment, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to do so. JT and I are super excited to leave for a an amazing bucket-list week in Peru next week! I look forward to following the footsteps of the Inca and hiking Machu Picchu, walking the streets of ancient Cusco, eating Ceviche, drinking Pisco Sours, and speaking Spanish! Thanks to Nana and Boppa for taking care of our monkeys and house while we are away allowing us to make this dream of mine happen.

I enjoy hearing from all of you, and I want to express my gratitude to each of you for your continued support of Beautycounter's mission as well as of me and my small business whether it be that you read my newsletters, lift me up with likes and comments on my personal and business Facebook pages, recommend me to your friends, or switch to safer products yourself by shopping on my page- I am eternally grateful. This has been an educational, informational and personally challenging endeavor and adventure!

XOXO~ Jaime

It's all happening!!! I can't tell you how long I have been waiting for this. It definitely feels like I have been talking about it forever. :-)

We are LIVE on Target's website and will be available at a Target store near you! Different stores are handling distribution of product differently- if you stop by your store and see the product you had your eye on is no longer there, it is possible that the store may have more stock that they will replenish overnight. Also, check online :-)

** Rush to Target (or and choose #betterbeauty with Beautycounter (visit to check out which stores we will be in)

** There will be a "gift with purchase" code enclosed with each product you purchase. Go to and redeem for a free gift from Beautycounter (SCORE!)
(And another bonus- Text BEAUTY to Target (827438) and get a coupon on your phone that gets you a $5 Target gift card with any beauty purchase over $20- good through 9/17)

**While at Target, snap a selfie with the Beautycounter display! Post your selfie with the hashtag #BCforTarget on social media and tag me! You will be entered to win a Lip Gloss in Fig from me! Tell your friends to run to Target. If they redeem on my site as well, you may be rewarded! AGAIN!

**Target collaborations tend to sell out fast! (Think Missoni & Lilly Pullitzer!). There will only be a limited number of each product at Target, so don't wait! These are affordable, smaller sizes of 16 of our same luxurious products and a specially formulated face oil made just for Target (a total of 17 fabulous pieces). It's the perfect way to try Beautycounter. If you are already a fan, these smaller sized products make great travel size options for your purse!#switchtosafer

What are you hoping to score??!! I am so more than willing to help you decide what to try if you need some help choosing. Reach out!

I snagged myself two of my favorite magic Cleansing Balms because the size is ideal for travel not to mention a purse, backpack, desk, or diaper bag. I also bought the small size Routine Cleanser and Day Cream set that I can't live without, the perfect size Rosewater Mist for my purse and travel, AND the Target only exclusive Nourishing Face oil- again for the size but also I love and use the other 3 oils so much I figure I will love this one, too!

The Magic Starts Here on SALE while supplies last

You've heard me say it before. This Nourishing Cleansing Balm is the bomb! Over the last year it has quickly gone from a once a week use to several times a week, sometimes as an overnight mask and sometimes to cleanse. I love how it makes my skin feel after using it- so soft and hydrated. LOVE! Right now, you can find the Cleansing Balm in a small size at Target as part of our capsule collection. If you already love it, or know that you will, it is also on SUPER SALE at Beautycounter. This baby is now only $55!!! That is a huge savings from $80. This deal is while supplies last or through September 30. The jar is large, and even with more frequent use, it lasts quite a long time. My last one lasted almost a year- this one will go quicker because of my obsession (I use it on sunburn and bug bites, too). I am thinking maybe 7-8 months for this jar.

Click here to shop now! And if you haven't joined our Band of Beauty membership program yet, check that out too! If you have ordered from Beautycounter 2 or more times or if your first order will be over $100, this program is for you! Details are here.

And the Awards Go To....

We are simply rocking 2016! It's been a big year and all of the accolades and attention are so well deserved!

Thanks Glamour for recognizing our hydrating Lip Conditioner for a 2016 win. I keep one on my nightstand and one in my purse! Shop it here: Lip Conditioner Peppermint

And you have definitely heard me raving about our game changing Lengthening Mascara- I simply love how it defines and lengthens my lashes and lasts ALL DAY LONG!! And Allure agrees with me! Thanks to Allure for the Best of Beauty award! Shop it here: Lengthening Mascara

September New Consultant Incentive

At Beautycounter, we think BIG. We look forward to the day when our children won't have to check the labels for toxic ingredients in the products they use every day.

After all, our health and the health of those we love, is everything. I am building a team to share this story—and put safe products in the hands of everyone. Whether you can spend five hours a week or 50, want to make $100s or $1,000s, join me. Together we can make a difference. I can promise you, it will be rewarding.

Whether you are already a valued Client who is familiar with our products or someone intrigued and would like to become involved, I would like to invite you to join me as I continue to educate others about safer skincare. The Target partnership indicates the growing awareness of consumers who are looking for safer products, and we need people like you to help us spread our message. I would love for you to become a Beautycounter Consultant in time to take advantage of the busy fall selling season. Now more than ever is the perfect time to consider the Beautycounter business opportunity and I would love to help you get started!

Join me here.

To Read

" The most common complaint we hear from women who switch to natural? "Oh, that made me break out." Harper says that breaking out is common when you go natural, but it's not the product that's causing it: "If your skin is full of toxins, you may experience breakouts — especially skin prone to oil and general imbalance — but what's happening is that your skin is literally detoxifying its buildup of toxins," she says. "People confuse reactions with this detox adjustment period." Read more with the link below.

"One study that found a health benefit when people ate less sugar and more vegetables was dismissed because that dietary change was not feasible.

Another study, in which rats were given a diet low in fat and high in sugar, was rejected because "such diets are rarely consumed by man."

I can't decide if I am surprised or not based on all that I have learned about the personal care industry. Read more below.
