Taking care of my skin by putting safer skincare products on my body is as important to me as the food I put in my body. Click here to read my personal skin story, where I share why I personally care about safer skincare and why I am a Beautycounter Consultant.
Below are the items I use on a daily basis for my skincare and make-up. Click here to join my Beautycounter Facebook Group where I share product updates, safer skincare info and education, and special sales.
I love sharing my favorite Beautycounter products, and I would love to help you make the switch to safer beauty products, too. Even if it is a slow transition – one product at a time – small steps are better than none.

My Favorite Beautycounter Products
Listed in the order I apply. I don’t use all of these every single day since I vary my routine, but these are the products I use consistently.
Countercontrol Clear Pore Cleanser — I love this cleanser! This is the cleanser both Nick and I use daily. I use it with my Clarisonic in the shower and feel like it leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean.
Rejuvenating Toner Pads — Toners “prep” your skin for the following products, i.e. serum/peel/moisturizer. These can also be used in a pinch when you need to freshen up and don’t have time to do your full regime.
Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion (or Instant Glow Illuminating Cream from the Instant Awakening Trio) — This face lotion is a best-seller for good reason: it’s so lightweight yet is ultra hydrating and adapts to your skin’s need via fancy bio-mimic technology. I love the light almond scent. Plus, it can act as a primer before applying makeup and is a great base layer before applying Dew Skin/Tint Skin. I’m obsessed with the Illuminating Cream from our 2018 Holiday Collection, which is a pearlescent version o f the Countermatch lotion.
One-Step Makeup Remover Wipes — also great post-workout! Must have these guys stocked at all times. So handy when I’m too lazy to wash my face. They’re huge and moisturizing and get the job done. Plus, they’re compostable!
Overnight Resurfacing Peel — read my review here. I think everyone should have this product. It’s incredible. It helps with dullness, large pores, scars, spots, everything. And it’s safe for sensitive skin, too. I use it 2-3x a week.
Countermatch Recovery Sleeping Cream — Great for the winter, and dry/cold weather. I love to use this after the Resurfacing Peel.
Additional Skincare Favorites
No. 3 Balancing Facial Mask — I use this charcoal mask about once per week. It helps to draw out gunk from your pores and combat excess oil. I also use it as a spot treatment on blemishes.
No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil — I love all of our facial oils, but tend use #1 the most. I like to add a drop or two to the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion for extra hydration and glow.
Cleansing Balm — Basically the ultimate multi-tasker: cleanses skin, melts away makeup and can be used as an overnight mask. I like to use this in the winter (apply a thin layer after using the Resurfacing Peel to wake up with exfoliated, nourished, glowing skin!).
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer — I wear No. 2, this is my daily must-have as it has SPF 20 and it the ideal lightweight, tinted moisturizer. I’ll usually apply it after the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion or Illuminating Cream.
Tint Skin Hydrating Foundation — I wear Linen and usually mix it Dew Skin.
Mattifying Powder — This immediately absorbs oil and reduces excess shine (and sets makeup, I use on top of my Dew Skin/Tint Skin
Luminous Powder Highlighter — I use Halo, it adds a little something to my simple makeup routine (and is beautiful layered over blush, too).
Color Define Brow Pencil — I use Medium.
Body & Hair Care
Sugar Body Scrub — The lemongrass scent is to die for!
Body Butter — Love the richness and fresh, citrus scent. Can also be used as a hand and foot cream.
