Night-Time Skincare Reboot

Good morning, friends! I’v had a number of people ask me questions about these Beautycounter products that I’ve added to my nighttime skincare routine. I’ve updated this story with a little more information, but feel free to reach out to me if you’d like more details!

Right before the holidays, I started to look more closely at Beautycounter, a line of skincare and makeup that has been mindfully developed to lessen the number of chemicals used in creating them. Having just watched my mom overcome cancer this last year, I’ve definitely become more aware of what I put in and on my body.

While no company is perfect, Beautycounter is working towards creating skincare and cosmetic products that are toxic free. Being the product girl that I am, I decided to give it a whirl.

To be honest, Beautycounter has surprised me. I tend to be skeptical of companies like this…I wish I knew why. But so far, I’m in love with their lipsticks! (That’s big coming from a very picky me!! My favorites right now and going into spring are First Date and Garden Party I’m also crazy about the Overnight Resurfacing Peel and the Brightening Vitamin C Oil. Every night after I wash my face, I apply a couple of pumps of the peel and a couple of drops of the oil.

The Overnight Resurfacing Peel removes the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a brighter complexion and after just a few uses, I noticed a difference. I’d recommend using it three to four times per week at first to start and building up as you see fit. It also comes in a travel size if you want to sample it or have it on hand for easy packing! This is everyone’s favorite Beautycounter product and if you’re going to try just one, this is IT!

The Brightening Vitamin C Oil is amazing, too. The Vitamin C helps brighten your skin and leaves me feeling glowy in the morning. It’s hydrating, but not too heavy and lasts a long time because you only need a few drops to cover your whole face. If you have oily or breakout prone skin, the Balancing Facial Oil would be perfect for you!

In the last couple of weeks I’ve been using it, I’ve seen a huge difference in how smooth and hydrated my skin feels by morning without making it feel sticky or greasy.

If you have any questions about other Beautycounter products I’ve tried, please let me know! I promise that I will only tell you about the products I love most.
