WHAT?! The line of Beautycounter products for men hasn't been released yet (hopefully soon). But that doesn't mean that men can't use the products that are available.
I'll be honest, I have never really been big on using personal products. Pit-stick, toothpaste, moisturizer, hair styling product, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, and sometimes chapstick in the winter. That's it. I don't wear cologne, use aftershave, or even shaving cream.
But since discovering Beautycounter and exploring many of their products (see what I mean here), I'm kicking myself for not using many of these things before. And that's why I came up with my Top 10 Beautycounter Products for Men & Women.

Top 10 Beautycounter Products for Men & Women
|1. Sunscreen Lotion (finally available in Canada!) Holley prefers the sun stick over the lotion, but I love this lotion! I'm sooo glad that it's finally available. What an easy way to protect against premature aging!|
|2. Charcoal Bar Look at this bar. Rubbing charcoal on your face and/or body. How much more manly can you get? This soap is amazing at drawing out toxins from your skin without exposing you to harmful ingredients.|
|3. Face Oils I like all three of these (brightening, plumping, and balancing oils). I can tell you that after using these face oils for only a couple weeks I looked years younger and my face feels so much softer and more supple.|
|4. Face Mask (charcoal) I like all 3 masks, but the charcoal one is my fave (a.k.a. “No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask”). Partially because it's more fun to paint my face with the darker mask (you can find multiple videos here), but also because it is so effective at drawing out excess oil and impurities. It's helpful with acne, not just on your face, but any other skin that is affected by acne.|
|5. Body Butter in Citrus Mimosa One of the few personal products that I use semi-regularly is some form of skin moisturizer and I found this body butter very pleasant. It's light, not greasy, and the scent is fresh and energizing.|
|6. Lip Balm in Peppermint This also comes in Calendula scent. I live in a dry area and I'm guilty of being chronically dehydrated. My lips are often dry and this lip conditioner is really helpful and soothing.|
|7. Protect Lip Balm SPF 15 I'm not sure if it's just in Canada that this is an issue or what, but I have a hard time finding sticks of lip balm that contains sun protection. Thankfully, this is now available on both sides of the border! And it doesn't melt in the car!|
|8. Rejuvenating Eye Cream This is the crucial age-defying product that is a must! And even if you got no sleep the night before, this can make it look like you're rested and ready for the day! It took years off my face with only a few days use!|
|9. Cleansing Balm What a magical product. This is an oil-based cleaner that does… everything! It's hydrating, good for body acne, removes makeup, pulls out impurities therefore good as a spot treatment, and tons of other uses. Plus it lasts forever!|
|10. Body Wash in Citrus Mimosa This clean body wash was the answer question: What is in My Soap?!? Also, the citrus mimosa scent is a great way to start the day, as it's so energizing and refreshing!|
|1. Facial Mist OK, I'll admit that these don't come across as being the manliest of products, but honestly? They are amazing after using the face masks. I've gotta tell you, they are super refreshing. You'll see what I mean.|
|2. Sugar Body Scrub in Lemongrass I love it. This body scrub is great for exfoliating rough, dry skin. If you have acne on your arms, neck or back, this is really helpful in getting you smooth skin. Ladies, you're going to want to touch your man's skin when he uses this. Not to mention the fresh scent of lemongrass.|
|3. Style Sea Salt Spray The Texture Sea Salt Spray was able to replace one of the other products that I was already using every day. It's clean, simple, and gives a good amount of hold for styling. I'm really happy that I've found this product.|
