I loveeee sharing my favorite products with you guys. Buckle up because you are going to be getting the full scoop on my clean beauty transition.
When transitioning to clean beauty, I think it’s important to highlight the top products that I absolutely love and give you a little run down on each, why I love them, what they have done for me, and why they are important for all skin types. These are the “if I was stranded on an island and could only take 5 products”.
Countercontrol Clear Pore Cleanser I love this because it targets my hormonal acne. It deep-cleans without dryness. It is designed to target blemish-prone skin, removes oil, makeup, and other impurities without harsh surfactants that can strip skin of moisture.
Twice daily, apply a small amount to a wet face and massage gently in a circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry. (Most of the time, I double cleanse but it is not necessary)
This is huge for me. My skin has never felt more clean + makeup free. Obsessed with this entire regime! You can find that here. With hormonal acne, imbalance was the one thing that I was searching for- I needed balance and maintenance for clear skin. THIS was the answer to all of that. I am so happy with this regime.
All Brightening Vitamin C Serum 10% blend of two forms of vitamin C instantly brightens skin and helps reduce the appearance of existing dark spots, while antioxidant-rich turmeric and camu camu extracts help protect against new ones.
Use All Bright C Serum as a “treat’ step with any regimen. After cleansing and toning in the morning, use your regimen’s regular serum, then layer All Bright C Serum on top.
Apply to face & neck- follow with moisturizer
In the past, I used medical grade 20% vitamin c. As soon as I put it on, it stung and I felt like my face never truly got use to it- I thought the stinging was the bottle working it’s magic, so I thought. I used it for months with more and more irritation and acne. Reading the importance of using a vitamin c, I wanted to continue to give it a chance. When I finally ran out of the bottle, my skin cleared up instantly. I switched over to Beautycounter vitamin c serum, which gave me a fresh feel and was very cooperative with my sensitive skin. Within a few weeks, I saw immediate results and my face felt amazing adding it to my regime.
Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel multi-acid complex, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and boosts clarity without irritation or over-drying. This is soooo important with my sensitive skin.
This resurfacing peel clears away dull surface cells and help soothe to reveal a brighter, healthier looking, renewed complexion. Game changing product on my shelf.
Apply 1 to 2 pumps to clean face and neck, and leave on overnight. May tingle upon application – but that just means it’s getting to work girl!!!
Allow product to fully absorb (3 to 5 minutes), then follow with a moisturizer. Use every other night
After a month use, I saw smoother skin, glowing + bright skin, less acne scaring, skin felt resurfaced, minimized pores and coloring.
Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum (retinol treatment alternative) rejuvenating treatment visibly increases skin firmness and elasticity, while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Using a plant-derived Retinatural Complex, it helps enhance the skin’s moisture barrier function to optimize hydration for a radiant complexion.
So excited to add this to my regime.
Dispense 1-2 pumps into hand. Smooth onto face, neck in upward strokes. Use morning and night.
I was seeing the benefits of medical grade retinol but I did not even know what I was putting on my face- it was strong, harsh and toxic. I needed a clean alternative. The Countertime regime and serums are amazing alternatives that benefit your skin and are just as effective. My skin glows and I did not think I would ever say that. I am so happy to find this alternative.
Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask It is a spa in a bottle. This clay mask balances and absorbs excess oil and draws out impurities. Salicylic and lactic acids aid in a gentle exfoliation, giving skin a smooth, polished look with a minimized appearance of pores.*
*Such a good gift to someone…. or just yourself!
let me scream this for all the people in the back– “YOU NEED THIS MASK!!!”
Apply an even layer to clean skin.
Let dry for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Use 2 to 3 times per week.
Can also be used as an overnight spot treatment.
Well, it’s quite simple.
It pairs great with a bath, a large glass of wine, and I am a big fan of self care. If we are without spa treatments during this pandemic, this is as close to it as you can get.
We all need this magical bottle of goodness.
It is so hard to pick a top 5- especially when so many products contributed to the photo below and the progress I have made this year switching to BC.
