Hi friends! How’s the day going so far? I hope you’re having a great one! We’re just hanging out here at home, I’m looking forward to catching a barre class on demand and heading to the pool later. The usual. 🙂
For today’s post, I wanted to feature a Beautycounter product that I’m LOVING lately, and this is coming from a person who is super picky about foundation: our newest Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation.
Here’s a little bit about Skin Twin:
Skin Twin is skincare and makeup in one: it’s buildable coverage but also contains hyaluronic acid to plump and smooth skin, plus moisturizing benefits all in a recyclable glass bottle. It gives you coverage, protects your skin, and can improve texture all at the same time. The hyaluronic acid can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time and most users notice immediate results with first-time use. When I first heard about all of this, I was like sign.me.up.
Like I mentioned before, I’m really picky about foundation. I feel like too much of the wrong type is aging, and that I benefit from a “less is more” mentality. I’ve loved the Tarte BB cream for years, but it’s extremely matte, so I’d often mix it with our Dew Skin foundation (on the shinier side). The Skin Twin is like the best of all worlds. It’s moisturizing so it doesn’t dry out my skin and doesn’t add weird creases. It’s buildable if you want more coverage, and isn’t too matte or shiny. I also love that it’s not too oily or greasy. I’m prone to milia under my eyes -little white bumps if things get too oily- and I haven’t had this problem with the Skin Twin. It’s just enough to even out my complexion without feeling like I’m caked in makeup.
Skin Twin Foundation Key Ingredients
Hyaluronic Acid: Known as a moisture magnet, hyaluronic acid delivers supercharged hydration for visibly plump, glowing skin immediately, and with continued use.
Jojoba Esters: Derived from the desert-dwelling jojoba plant, this lightweight, non-greasy emollient helps to moisturize, soothe, and soften skin.
Hydrophobic Pigments: Specially coated and color-true, these pigments provide long-wearing, buildable, second-skin coverage.
How we’re committed to safer and more sustainable products with Skin Twin:
We source safer ingredients: no mineral oils, cyclic silicones, or synthetic film formers–which may be linked to harmful effects to human health.
All products are subject to stringent safety testing. Each batch is tested for heavy metals to ensure it meets our strict safety measures. We’re highly selective when it comes to pigments; out of the 65 cosmetic colorants allowed in the US, Beautycounter prohibits the vast majority–only using 18 colorants in our color cosmetics.
Glass bottles! Moving Skin Twin into a glass bottle will avoid an estimated 235k plastic tubes from entering landfills and waterways in just one year.
Beautycounter Skin Twin Match
One of the most exciting things about Skin Twin is that we offer 18 shades so it’s easy to find a shade to match your skin tone. If you need help, you can use our handy shade finder here. For reference, I use shade Medium 340.
