Well, it has been a few months since this pandemic was officially declare, and while everything around us has been rapidly changing, one thing has stayed the same. Our love for self care and desire to be aware of what we are not only putting into our body, but what we are putting on our body. With that being said, since we are now home from college, we have not really been as focused about our makeup routine, but have shifted over to perfecting our skin care regimens and our shelves.
Now onto what we have been using these past few months to stay ~glowing clean~ and of course cheerful.
Counter+ Charcoal facial mask
This mask is a Beautycounter must have. It’s a simple and effective way to brighten up your complexion, clear up breakouts, fight acne, and so much more. The Charcoal Facial Mask works in a way that is especially good for congested complexions, and the mineral rich Kaolin clay and charcoal powder helps to absorb impurities to help balance your skin.
The mask also includes salicylic acid, which is designed to smooth and brighten your skin by stimulating exfoliation, as well as sodium hyaluronate, which supports skin’s water retention.
If you aren’t able to go to the spa right now, this combined with the Counter+ Charcoal Mist (which you can get for free as a Band of Beauty Member!!) plus the Charcoal Cleansing Bar is the perfect way to have your own special night at home.
Overnight resurfacing peel
While the Overnight Resurfacing Peel has been one of our favorites for a long time, this has become even more popular in quarantine.
A peel may not be in your regimen already, however, It should be. AHA/BHA’s in a peel help to loosen the layer of dead skin and clear them away, but does not irritate It. The Overnight Resurfacing Peel makes your skin tone more even, feel softer, and boosts radiance.
This can be used alongside a regimen, every other night, and goes right before a moisturizer. What we love most is putting the Countermatch Sleeping Recovery Cream on top of It.
Even better, there are no synthetic fragrances or PEGs and It has the perfect combination of resurfacing and soothing acids to hydrate, replenish and protect your precious skin.
counter+ eye revive cooling masks
After a long day of school, or work, or for all the mom’s out there…homeschooling, there is nothing better than a glass. of wine and these new eye masks. They are formulate with a cucumber extract and aloe which are ingredients that are supposed to help the skin around your eye feeling soothed and refreshed.
Not only do these masks reduce puffiness but they instantly wake up the circles under your eyes, either after that long day, or before it even starts!
countermatch refresh foam cleanser
Not only does has Beautycounter created the softest cleanser that hydrates your skin as you wash your face, but it is hands down one of the most effective cleansers I have used when It comes to washing away dirt, makeup, and other environmental stressors.
The Refresh Foaming Cleanser contains squalane, plum oil, and phytic acid to wash away the impurities, but leave you glowing immediately after use. Squalane comes from olives and brings the moisture into the skin and restores elasticity, while the plum oil which is rich in vitamin E provides important nutrients to keep your skin healthy. Lastly, the phytic acid gently exfoliates to encourage cell turnover and help your. skin breath.
The combination of these ingredients has created the ideal cleanser which we 100% recommend.
