Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

I have been using Beautycounter for a few years. I can't believe how much it has truly changed my skin. Since being in quarantine, I've spent more time perfecting my skincare routine and I'm really happy with my results. I always like to thoroughly test/try out products before sharing them here. I've had several products empties, so I figured it was time to share my Beautycounter favorites with you! PS. I am not a Beautycounter consultant, I just REALLY love these products!

Beautycounter Favorites and Must Haves 

When it comes to skincare, it's really important to me that they are truly clean. There are so many products out there that claim to be clean but yet they're filled with fragrance. I personally can't stand skincare that has added fragrance. What I love about Beautycounter is that there aren't any added scents. Everything that you smell from their products comes from the natural ingredients.

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

In the past, I've always tried random skincare products here and there but have never truly had a routine. Once I found Beautycounter, I was hooked! I wanted to share the skincare products that are in my daily regimen and ones that I've had to re-purchase because I actually emptied them! Here are my top 10 products from Beautycounter that I can't live without!

The US only bans 30 ingredients in beauty products whereas the EU bans over 1400. Check out Beautycounters "the Never List" here. They also don't test their finished products on animals and many of their products are vegan.

Beautycounter Must Have - One - Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

 

The Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream feels so luxurious. I use this before my facial oil in my evening routine and can't live without it. It's super hydrating and supports elasticity which I need!

It increases my skins firmness and I can actually see a difference in my skin. Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream contains Bakuchiol which is a natural comparison to retinol without the harmful side effects like skin irritation.

It is very thick, so I personally only use this at night and a little bit goes a long way! I've had mine for 6 months and it is barely half way gone.

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Retinatural Complex: We took two of the most powerhouse plant-derived ingredients available and created a scientific breakthrough. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinol—without harmful side effects such as skin irritation and increased sun sensitivity—and Swiss Alpine rose boosts the skin’s antioxidant defense.
  • Tetrapeptide: Helps increase skin elasticity, minimize the appearance of lines, boost visible firmness, and smooth skin surface.
  • Fermented Sugars (Biosaccharide Gum-1): This blend of fermented sugars helps soothe skin while helping slow the visible effects of aging by optimizing hydration for renewed skin.

Beautycounter Must Have - Two - Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

The Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel is another absolute must have! This is like botox in a bottle! This is a leave on AHA/BHA peel that boosts skins clarity. It is quite gentle and doesn't cause any irritation for me. It does tingle a bit when you first apply it (especially after exfoliating).

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Glycolic Acid: improves skin texture, resurfaces, exfoliates.
  • Lactic Acid: stimulates cell renewal promoting a smoother, radiant-looking complexion.
  • Citric Acid: helps refine and renew skin.
  • Arginine & Fatty Acids: aid in conditioning and moisturizing skin.

It really does give you a glow in the morning! I use it 3-4 times per week and I give it around 3 minutes to absorb, then put on my favorite moisturizer. When I use this, I use it first after washing my face.

Beautycounter Must Have - Three - Counter+ No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

This is another holy grail for me. I LOVE a good facial oil and this one is perfect. It goes on really light and absorbs quickly. You can use it morning or night because it is so absorbent and light. I love that it contains vitamin C which helps to brighten my skin and is a great antioxidant. It smells so good too! I use this last in my routine.

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Vitamin C: helps visibly brighten skin.
  • Avocado Oil: rich in vitamins B, D and E for intense hydration.
  • Black Currant Oil: rich in omegas to help aid in healthy skin barrier function.

Beautycounter Must Have - Four - Counterstart Cococream Cleanser

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

I have been on the hunt for a perfect cream cleanser and this is it! My skin tends to be on the dryer side and the cleanser I was previously using totally dried my skin out. It's made from coconut oil which I am a huge fan of. It's great for sensitive skin. I will be purchasing this again and again!

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Coconut Oil: Gently breaks down impurities while hydrating skin.
  • Aloe Vera: Nourishes and soothes skin.
  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E): An antioxidant that protects skin from environmental aggressors.

Beautycounter Must Have - Five - Countersun Daily Sheer Defense For Face – SPF 25

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

Everyone needs a great daily SPF and this one is perfect. It goes on super sheer with no white cast. I use it daily on my face and the back of my hands. It's another must have for me! It protects against UVA, UVB, and HEV blue light rays.

It also absorbs SUPER quickly which is a must! I also use this on my girls and I always keep it In my purse. It's also reef friendly so I'll be packing this with me on our trip to Hawaii.

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Non-Nano Zinc Oxide: a physical, mineral sun protection technology that works by reflecting UV rays
  • Chicory Root Extract: supports skin’s barrier function to lock in hydration
  • Vitamin E (Tocopherol): provides powerful antioxidant benefits that defend against environmental stressors to keep skin healthy looking
  • Squalane: derived from olives, draws moisture into the skin, leaving it happily hydrated

Beautycounter Must Have - Six - Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

This eye cream is from the Countertime line and feels so luxurious (just like the tetrapeptide super cream). It's made from plant-derived Retinatural Complex and Persian silk tree extract which helps reduce dark circles and crows feet. It also helps firm skin around the eye area. This is another product where a little goes a long way! I've had this for around 6 months and it's barely half used. You definitely get your moneys worth!

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • Retinatural Complex: We took two of the most powerhouse plant-derived ingredients available and created a scientific breakthrough. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinol—without harmful side effects such as skin irritation and increased sun sensitivity—and Swiss Alpine rose boosts the skin’s antioxidant defense.
  • Persian Silk Tree Extract (Albizia Julibrissin Bark Extract)Proven in independent clinical studies to brighten the eye area, fade dark circles, diminish puffiness, and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet.

Beautycounter Must Have - Seven - Counter+ All Bright C Serum

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

Last, but certainly not least is the most amazing vitamin c serum you'll ever try! It contains two forms of vitamin c and has visibly reduced my dark spots and evened out my skin tone. Antioxidant rich turmeric helps protect against new spots. It also smells amazing! I use this after cleansing (on days I don't use the peel) and in the morning.

If I were to only purchase one of these products, this would be it! 

Beautycounter Favorites - My Clean Skincare Must Haves

Here are the featured ingredients:

  • 10% Vitamin C blend:
  • 5% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): Antioxidant that reduces the appearance of dark spots and boosts skin brightening, to reveal more youthful-looking skin.
  • 5% Bis-Glyceryl Ascorbate (Vitamin C): Moisturizes skin while providing antioxidant benefits known to protect skin from damaging environmental stressors. Helps improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Curcuma Longa (Turmeric) Root Extract: The serum’s vibrant hue? That’s thanks to turmeric, an antioxidant superstar that helps even skin tone and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit Extract: This powerful antioxidant helps reduce the appearance of dark spots while brightening, to visually improve signs of skin fatigue.

I hope this helped to hear an unbiased review on these amazing Beautycounter products! I truly love these and they have made such a huge difference in my skin. It's so nice to finally have a regular skincare routine. Please let me know if you have any questions on anything I have covered here or if you need help picking out products for your skin type. I do have other favorites that I didn't cover here as well!
