Gregg Renfrew's Beautycounter Hot List



"I'm completely obsessed with our newest product—the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion ($48). This patent-pending moisturizer sold out in less than one day. Make sure you get on the waitlist!"



"Our Cleansing Balm ($80) is my desert-island product. It's perfect for people who travel as much as I do. You can easily take it through security because it’s a hard oil, not a liquid. And it does triple duty—a cleanser, a makeup remover and an overnight mask for ultra hydration."


Lip Sheer

"My favorite piece from our cosmetics line is the Lip Sheer in Twig It ($30); it was in the very first collection of lip sheers we launched and continues to be one of my favorites. In a pinch I can use it on my cheeks for an instant glow."



"Our No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask ($48) has become a cult favorite (much like our Facial Oils), and it's super fun to do with girlfriends or with your kids at night."



"Because it’s summer, I just can't leave out our incredible SPF line, especially our All-Over Sunscreen ($32) and Body Stick Sunscreen ($34). Instead of using potentially harmful sun blockers like oxybenzone, we formulate with non-nano zinc oxide, an effective mineral that hasn't been found to be harmful to the ocean's ecosystem. It also doesn't leave you looking like a ghost—it rubs right in!"
