Beautycounter has been discontinued! Read about what happened to Beautycounter (and when it might come back) here. In the meantime, I have lots of great recommendations for Beautycounter product swaps linked in this post. Also, be sure to join my email list so you can be the first to know when your Beautycounter favorites come back.

Every year, Beautycounter rolls out exclusive gift sets for the holidays, and every year I’m SO excited to try everything and I gift them as well. I also like to break some of these sets up into smaller gift; Ttere are a few that make the perfect stocking stuffers if you split them up or make cute teacher gifts paired with a coffee gift card.

This year, the Clean Eau De Parfum Duo set is my TOP pick. Beautycounter has never launched fragrance before, so this is VERY exciting, and you can read more about it below. I also love the Hand Cream Trio and the Polish & Plump Facial Trio. I fully anticipate that they will both sell out based on the holiday products that sold out first in the last few years.

As a Beautycounter consultant, I got to shop and try the products early and I’m sharing a few of my favorites! You can see the full collection here.

Ready to see what’s included this year? Let’s dive in!

Beautycounter Holiday Gift Guide

Clean Eau De Parfum Duo

Beautycounter has finally launched PERFUME! Beautycounter has been working on creating a scent category for years, and this perfume duo is the very first launch. Both scents were created in partnership with a fine fragrance house, and they’re EWG verified, safe for even the most sensitive skin, and even I don’t react to them (and I react to many clean perfumes, including Phlur).

There are two scents in this duo: Sun Spill and Miles Away. Sun Spill is an uplifting citrusy floral scent and Miles away is an herbal green scent. Do NOT miss this duo!

Mini Beyond Gloss Vault

Beautycounter’s Beyond Gloss is a great gloss when you’re on the go since it applies perfectly without a mirror and a little goes a long way. This set includes four NEW colors: Daisy Shimmer (a sheer opalescent shimmer), Toffee Shimmer (a bronze gold shimmer), Petunia (a true rose color), and Posy (a cool plum shade). They’re mini sizes, and even the mini will last you months. They’re perfect for your purse, clutch, or car. This is one of those sets that I’ll split up and gift individually! I’ll give them to a few friends of mine with a card. Or give the full set to a beauty junkie who’ll be excited to try all the colors. (This is a great option for nieces!)

They’re all great for fall and winter, and the shades are designed to look good on all skin tones.

Lashes & Lips Makeup Duo

Next up is the Lashes & Lips Makeup Duo which includes Beautycounter’s famous a Thing Big All-in-One Mascara and their Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick in a brand new shade. This set also comes with a reusable makeup bag! Reusable Makeup Bag. While I don’t personally use this mascara, it does have a loyal following. (All oil-soluble mascaras transfer onto my skin so I can’t use them; I only use tubing mascaras, which I explained in this post.) The Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick is another cult favorite. It’s like a blend of lipstick and gloss. And this brand new shade, Transformer, was made to enhance the natural color of your lips.

This set would be a perfect gift for a teenager who’s just starting to wear makeup. Or a beauty junkie who would want some minis to keep in her purse.

Hidden Gem Makeup Set

I was really excited when I saw that the Hidden Gem Makeup Set included my very favorite cream blush + Beautycounter’s famous priming serum. While I really like the priming serum, the blush is the part I’m most jazzed about. When I tell you it lasts forever, I mean forEVER. These have the best staying power, natural finish, and can also be used on your lips in a pinch. Their cream blushes blend the easiest of any brand I’ve tried (and I’ve tried a lot) so it’s a good way to venture into cream products.

The priming serum is a favorite of many Beautycounter junkies because it is a makeup + skincare combo. Not only does it improve the wear of your foundation, but it also makes your skin look plump and smooth all day.

Main Squeeze Lip Jellies

Eeekkk the Lip Jellies are BACK! If you’re new here, these have a cult following and they’re my favorite minis ever! These baby lip glosses are ultra-glossy and have the perfect sweet scent/taste. They aren’t sticky and are so fun to apply since they have a bit of nostalgia to them. They don’t have as much as the glosses but give more of a tinted sheen.

This set comes with 5 shades: confetti (an iridescent shimmer), Oat Latte (a milky peach), Sugarplum (a sheer berry), Lollipop (a sheer, bright pink/red shimmer), and a returning favorite, Sorbet.

While this set would be a perfect one to split up into smaller gifts, I know I’m going to end up keeping them all for myself. I also have to mention that the packaging is SO fun for this set too.

Shimmer & Glow Makeup Duo

I am really excited about the Shimmer & Glow Makeup Duo set. It includes Beautycounter’s talc-free highlight powder in a brand new shade Cava (shimmering rose bronze) along with the fan favorite cream eyeshadow in a new shade, Blaze — a shimmering pink champagne that draws light to your lids. Both of these products are the perfect addition to a makeup junkie’s arsenal, especially for fun holiday festivities.
(Here are some cocktail dresses for holiday parties!)

Brighter Days Skin-Care Set

If you’re a Vitamin C fanatic (like me), then you will LOVE the Brighter Days set. This includes both a mini of the All Bright C serum and a mini of the our All Bright Triple Acid AHA Toner. The toner is designed to refine your pores and make your skin glow (it’s incredibly effective), and the All Bright C serum is the best daily vitamin C serum I’ve tried. It’s helped reduce my dark sun spots SO much (I shared a before and after here). You could easily gift this set to anyone on your list who loves skincare, but I’m keeping it for myself so that I can have travel sizes of my favorite products.

Countermatch Carry-On Set

The Countermatch Carry-On Set is by far the most requested set we’ve had in a while. People who use and love Countermatch products have been begging for a travel-sized set since Countertime got one last year. I’m so happy they made this! Not only is it great for Countermatch lovers but it’s the perfect set to gift to a teen who’s just starting a skincare routine! Countermatch products are designed for normal or combination skin and use gentle ingredients to cleanse, hydrate, and balance.

Keep Cool Radiance Duo

he Keep Cool Radiance Duo set is a fun option for a skincare junkie. This set has a full-size bottle of the best-selling Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum which is what I use in my skincare routine. It helps improve the skin barrier function, increases skin radiance, and decreases the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I love how gentle it is too (it’s the perfect serum to alternate with your more aggressive retinol products). Then, you also get these brand new Refreshing Facial Globes to help depuff and improve absorption. They work best when they’re chilled, so just put them in the refrigerator.

Sets like this are super fun to give because I don’t think anyone on my list would buy those Facial Globes, which makes them such a fun and “extra” treat. It’s always fun to receive things like this and get to try them without having to buy them for yourself.

Polish & Plump Facial Trio

The Polish & Plump Facial Trio is a powerhouse set. It would make 3 really good gifts or one GREAT gift for one lucky friend or family member. This set includes a mini Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm, mini Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask, and a mini Mighty Plump Ceramide Water Cream. All THREE of these products are best sellers and worth buying on their own, so to get them as minis, all together, is just super fun. I could rave about all three separately for paragraphs, but I’ll just let you read my full blog reviews of each (linked above).

Long story short, if you only get one set, it should be this one.

Goodnight & Glow Duo

The next set is the Goodnight & Glow duo which comes with a Mini Overnight Resurfacing Peel and a mini Reflect Effect Overnight Resurfacing Body Peel. The Overnight Resurfacing Peel is one of the best products Beautycounter makes and truly restores + renews your skin. It’s a safer alternative retinol and what I’ve been using since I got pregnant. The Body Peel is the same thing, but for your body instead of your face. It’s a GREAT option for anyone with Keratosis pilaris.

Sugar & Silk Body Set

The Sugar & Silk Body Set is one of the easiest sets to gift because it’s not skin-type specific! Everyone loves a luxurious bath set, and this one comes with a body polish (my all time favorite body scrub) and a body oil (which is super luxe and smells amazing).

Good Scents Hand Cream Trio

Every single year this limited edition Good Scents Hand Trio set sells out. The hand cream trio is not only an easy gift idea, but the packaging looks so high-end and fancy. AND this set is pretty affordable too! I tend to split these up and gift them along with a small coffee gift card.

Triple Quench Body Butter Set

Brand new to the gifting lineup this year is the Triple Quench Body Butter Set. Similarly to the Hand Crean Trio, I bet this will sell out! Body butter makes a perfect gift for your hair stylist, your nail tech, your mail lady, etc. This is limited edition, so you have to get it now!

Gifting tips

I mentioned above that I like to split these sets up to create smaller gifts. Things like the hand cream or body butter go well with a Starbucks gift card, and the lip gloss is great with a sweet note mailed to friend! There are lots of ways to make these sets smaller, but then again, who doesn’t love a full set of fun skincare goodies? :).

And no shame at all if you keep them for yourself. In fact, maybe go ahead and order 2 so you can keep one ;).

Shopping tips

1. When I first joined Beautycounter as a consultant, I didn’t really believe when they said holiday products would sell out. But… after five holiday seasons with the company, I now know that they do. So if there is anything you KNOW you want, shop sooner than later.

2. I would also be sure to add Band of Beauty to your cart before checking out — It’s kind of like Sephora rewards… but better. You get free shipping on $100+ orders for a year and you’ll also get 10% product credit back on every order (it adds up fast!). You’ll get a free gift with your first order if you spend $50.

3. Be sure to select TeriLyn Adams as your consultant at checkout so I can help with any order questions that come up! I so appreciate it!

4.  Make sure you’re on my newsletter to updates on any promos launching during the holidays, e.g. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals – sign up here.

5. You have 60 days to make returns, no questions asked. So, if you aren’t sure something will work for you, no worries! They even cover return shipping.

    1. Hi Teri, do you use the beautycounter eye makeup remover when you’re wearing eyelash extensions? I see that it has oil in it and I thought you couldn’t use oil-based products while wearing extensions.

      • I did use it while I had lashes, but only to remove eyeshadow and eyebrow pencil. I used a cotton pad and was careful not to let it touch my lashes or lash line. But my lashes are gone now so now I’m using it freely! 🙂
