My two-year anniversary of linking arms with Beautycounter is this month – what a fun surprise this leg of my business has been!

I love sharing about Beautycounter because not only do I stand behind their mission, safety standards, and commitment to transparency when it comes to the ingredients in personal care products, but the products are honestly the best I have ever used!

As I inch closer to 40, I’ve certainly leveled up my skincare game.

I went from not using any skincare products consistently to adopting a regular regimen that combats the signs of aging without the use of retinol. And, going back to the reason I switched to Beautycounter in the first place, I feel confident about using zinc-based mineral sunscreens that work on myself and my boys.

These products have boosted my skin in all the best ways.

After Birch was born my pregnancy and postpartum melasma was insane. While hopefully those spots would have faded over time, having a solid skincare regimen has helped to speed up that process. My skin not only looks better but it feels better too. 

My Top 10 Favorite Beautycounter Products

Whether you’re a minimalist when it comes to your morning makeup routine or you’re brand new to the safer side of skincare, this list of my all-time favorite Beautycounter products has something for you. 

1. Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream

This night cream is like buttah – and glides on. I can still feel it on my face in the morning – a nod to how well hydrated it keeps my skin overnight. I think this has made a bigger difference in my skin’s hydration than any other product. 

This night cream combined with the Overnight Peel (see #2) is a great place to start; with these two products you’ll see and feel a difference.

2. Overnight Resurfacing Peel

This is the Beautycounter gateway product for many people! Don’t be fooled by the name – you don’t actually peel when you use this, and you don’t wash it off. It’s more of a serum/safer brightener that helps lines and dark spots fade, improves dullness, minimizes pores and acne scars, and is great for all skin types. I think it’s made the biggest difference in combating signs of aging. It smooths texture most of all!

Remember these before and afters?

This was after using a complete Beautycounter regimen for just THREE WEEKS back in April 2019. I credit the Peel for a lot of the difference – it’s like a new surface.

3. All Bright C Serum

This is the daytime friend of the fan favorite Overnight Resurfacing Peel, and it’s designed to brighten and even skin tone. Not only does it work to fade brown spots and hyperpigmentation, but it actually inhibits melanin synthesis to prevent dark spots from appearing.

Vitamin C can degrade quickly in beauty products, and Beautycounter worked for years to develop this combination of two forms of vitamin C in a super stable formulation that delivers visible results. It’s a must-have for that instant glow!

4. Countertime Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence

This is my favorite product of the entire Countertime collection! I’ve always had a love for toners, and this is seriously the best toner I’ve ever tried.

Although it’s not technically a toner – it’s an essence that “lends vital nutrients to the skin’s moisture barrier instantly boosting hydration and radiance.”

It’s just thick enough that when you sprinkle it into your hands, it doesn’t fall through your fingers, making it easy to pat on your face after cleansing. 

It’s like a drink of water for your skin. If you have dry skin like me your face is thirsty as hell getting out of the shower, and this is your ice-cold drink of water to deliver much-needed moisture.

5. Melting Body Balm

This rich, luxurious body balm smells like coconut and pineapple had a baby with a Monoi flower scent. It looks like a thick balm, and then melts into skin as a nourishing oil.

I am obsessed with using this on my upper arms, which get extra-dry in winter, and I get whiffs of it all day! The scent alone was enough to hook me, but it delivers bonus benefits as a hand cream, lip balm, baby balm and more. 

6. Beyond Gloss

I’m a gloss girl and Beautycounter’s glosses do not disappoint. They’re ultra-shiny (never sticky), have a light vanilla scent from responsibility-sourced organic vanilla, and the teardrop applicator picks up the perfect amount of gloss. Layer over your favorite lipstick, or wear alone – you can’t go wrong! 

Favorite shades: Magnolia Shimmer, Bare Shimmer, and Spice!

7. The Clean Deo

Looking for a clean deodorant? The brand new Beautycounter Clean Deo is effective, smells great, is free of aluminum, and comes in a refillable package to minimize plastic waste.

My favorite scent is the Fresh Coconut. Plus, it really works – I’ve put it through the ultimate sweat test many times over.

8. Rose Glow Illuminating Cream Highlighter

Like a simple makeup routine? Try this illuminating cream highlighter stick that makes application quick and easy. It adds a subtle shimmer and rose color all in one.

All three shades are stunning, but I personally find myself using the Rose Glow the most – it’s the best all-around makeup color. The compact tube makes it convenient for travel to add add a hint of shimmer to your cheeks that catches the light when you move. 

9. Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer

This is perfect for those of us who are no-fuss. It’s a moisturizer with light coverage and sunscreen all in one.

If you hate the feeling of foundation or fear the caked-on foundation look, this product was made for you! If you’re looking for a bit more coverage, the Skin Twin Foundation is what you want! 

This is what I wear every day and I don’t leave the house without it on. Since it feels like a lightweight lotion, I can throw it on anywhere when I’m running around. I love that it has the SPF built in so the application is super quick and easy when I’m chasing the kids around outside or out on a walk.

10. Countersun Daily Sheer Defense Face Sunscreen

This fast-absorbing, lightweight sunscreen layers seamlessly over your daily moisturizer and under makeup. It provides protection from UVA, UVB, and blue light rays, without a chalky white cast.

I am obsessed with this face sunscreen – I keep one in both my makeup organizer for everyday and soccer bag when there is no shade in sight.

We also love the sunscreen mist for family beach days – it really is the best non-greasy zinc sunscreen ever. If you use those big “cloud of chemicals” spray sunscreen bottles (I used to) this is a great replacement for that.
