Three months ago I joined Beautycounter. I did it because I wanted to switch my skin care and make up products to more natural choices and they were running a special to join for $20 to get the discounted pricing. Since then I’ve bought multiple products to try and am really pleased with them for the most part!
I’m not a queen of green living by any definition, but have found that slow changes over time do work for me. Two years ago I focused on our water (we added a whole house filtration system and bought a Berkey for our drinking water). Last year I focused on cleaning products, and now use Branch Basics for the majority of my household cleaning. This year is about cleaner skincare and I’m excited at how Beautycounter makes that a pretty easy and attainable goal.
I’m not a “go all in person” with these types of changes. Instead, I slowly switch over to products as I run out of my old products. Over the past three months, I’ve had a chance to switch over a few of my most used products and these are my honest reviews of the products I’ve tried thus far!

Countermatch Refresh Foaming Cleanser This comes out as a thick cream and gets somewhat foamy for me, but I do feel like it helps get my face to that super clean feeling and gets off a majority of my eye makeup, too. I like that it leaves my skin feeling fresh and not tight.
Counter+ All Bright Vitamin C Serum I was super excited about this product because I heard people rave about it, but after a month of use I still didn’t really feel like my skin looked brighter. However, after asking about that on Instagram, I quickly learned that the main role of vitamin C serum is to nourish your skin and prevent future damage, like a vitamin for your face. So I’m sticking with it.
Countersun Daily Sheer Defense for Face I like that this is a physical block (using zinc) and as with any natural physical block, it feels slightly sticky when I first apply it. However, that goes away after about two minutes.
Counter+ Charcoal Facial Mask I love this stuff. Once a week (usually Sunday evenings) I use this mask and I love how it pulls impurities out of my skin (it’s visible!) and leaves my face feeling so, so soft. Highly recommend.
Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel Huge fan of this stuff! I have noticed a visible difference in my skin since adding this into my nightly routine (after washing, before moisturizer and eye cream). My skin looks brighter and more nourished.
Countertime Tetrapeptide Supreme Cream Another big winner in my book, especially in the cold months. It’s thick and luxurious and adds a ton of moisture to my skin.
Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream I know we are all supposed to wear eye cream (especially if we are in the generation that wore goucho pants) but it drives me crazy that I never see any big differences with using eye cream. However, I like the way it feels just fine and will continue to use it because “they” tell me I should.
Lip Conditioner in Peppermint I really like the smell of this stuff. It works well and the girls like it too, so I keep it with me at all times because winter weather is sucking the life out of our lips.
Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick (in Rosewood) I don’t wear a lot of lipstick, but really liked the shade of rosewood. It goes on really smoothly and feels moisturizing. Plus I love the that the top is magnetic; it makes it fun to close. Ha. I like how it looks and feels on that one day a month that I wear it!
