Any time I try a new product and end up loving it I have to let people know because if it's worth the money then it's worth sharing! I want to start by saying I've been considering a skincare routine for a LONG time. It's something that my friend Britt and I discuss frequently when we meet for dinner now that we are over 30. However, I have had a history of acne and other skin issues and I've always been hesitant to change anything that I do for fear of disrupting my very finicky skin. I've had the same "routine" (if you can even call it that) for years now and it keeps the breakouts at bay, so you can see my delay in changing anything up.
Recently though I have heard so many friends praise their Beautycounter skincare routine, and they said it has transformed their skin. Many of the girls in my book club love it, and it just so happens that one of the girls, Brianna Vincent, is also a Beautycounter rep. So if you're looking to buy, reach out to her and she will hook you up!
The first thing I noticed is the packaging, it's BEAUTIFUL, and as a photographer I LOVE that LOL...but obviously that's not most important here. Second thing I noticed was WOW there are a lot of steps. To my pleasant surprise though what I thought would take me forever usually only takes about 3-5 minutes total at morning and night, so really not that much time. The other thing I have noticed is that I really don't need a lot and I think the bottles will last me a while because I need less than even a pea-sized amount and it goes a long way.
Countermatch helps nourish skin, reduce signs of aging, and is good for those with combination skin like my own. It includes a cleanser, toner, serum, a morning all-day lotion, a night cream, and lastly an eye cream (which I was most excited about because I have dark circles).
To my pleasant surprise it wasn't sticky or greasy, using just the right amount it soaked into my skin well. AND...after just 3, yes THREE, days I noticed my skin tone began to even out, my dark spots started losing their contrast, and best of all no breakouts! Needless to say I'm hooked, if that's how well it works in just a few days I can't wait to see how my skin looks after weeks to months of use. Another thing to add about these products is they are safer for your skin with their more natural ingredients than most skincare products with harsh chemicals. The girls from book club have said one of the biggest benefits is that you don't really need as much makeup because if your skin looks good, who needs all of that foundation, highlighting, bronzing, etc...a huge draw for me because as a busy mom I find that having time to do full faces of makeup rarely happens.
So, if you are looking for a skincare routine and you're hesitant to try due to the price tag, don't hesitate on this one. Brianna also reassured me that there was a 60 day money back guarantee if you don't like the product for any reason, so really no harm in trying!
