Let me know if you’re interested in trying some of Beautycounter’s amazing products.

If we don’t have samples, I will try to make some for you! 

Here are a few of my favorites:

SAFE Products!



Who knew that there were SO many bad ingredients in our beauty products today?? 
I honestly didn’t think about it much until becoming pregnant. It has really enlightened me and made me want to learn more about what ingredients are exactly in the beauty products that I use! This includes shampoo, conditioner, lotions, toners, makeup, baby balm and so many other ingredients. 

I’ve recently started as a consultant for Beautycounter. This is a company that heavily screens there ingredients that are put into their products. It’s actually quite impressive! If you know me, I am a pretty low maintenance type of person. I don’t really normally wear make up, I use the bare minimum as far as products not only in my hair but on my skin which includes make up. However, after being involved with this company, I have definitely been more inclined to use Beautycounter Products because I know that everything in them is safe for not only me, but my baby as well! 

Tomorrow, join me live on my Facebook page, Beautycounter by Erica Petty!  I will be online at 11:00am PST to share a little bit about myself, why I joined Beautycounter, and also to showcase a couple of my favorite products! 

P.S. In the photo, I used Beautycounter makeup!

The Best Moisturizer!


You wouldn’t believe that oil is actually good to apply to your face and body – but it truly is!  100% organic, cold-pressed all natural Argan oil!

I’ve used this stuff for awhile now and there are so many uses for it.  Apply directly to your body, hands, face or even mix in with lotions you love.  It helps with split ends, frizzy hair, and of course moisturizes!  Best of all, it doesn’t leave any oily residue or film.  Try it out. It beats those chemicals and unknown ingredients you can’t seem to pronounce! 🙂
