Countermatch Collection - Skin Hydration & Age Prevention

It’s time for beautiful, hydrated skin. It’s a new year and a chance for a brand new routine for skin that at its peak performance.

Lately, have you been feeling like this?, “ I want my skin to look healthy and glowing, and also feel smoother and moisturized. My cheeks are sometimes dry and I want something easy to use.”

Let’s take a moment to explore Beautycounter’s Countermatch collection.

Who’s it for?

Normal, dry, combo, and sensitive skin. Think dull and dehydrated skin that needs a pick me up (and maybe just a little age prevention care too).

 

What’s so special about it?

New breakthrough Bio-Mimic Technology. What’s that? Well, it means “each product harnesses the unique life-giving properties of plants to match the composition of skin” (science jargon).

Again, what’s that you say?

Basically, there’s an ideal water, nutrient, and oxygen level for skin when it’s at it’s peak performance. Beautycounter scientist studied nature to find incredibly plant-based ingredients that would provide these ideal levels for your skin. The result is that every Countermatch product delivers precisely what skin needs and nothing it doesn’t.

 Let’s get nerdy for a moment and see how they did it:

  • Water // for hydration and suppleness > from green olives, coconut, and candeilia wax

  • Nutrition // for vibrant and healthy skin > from beet root, aloe, and palm

  • Oxygen // for glowing, radiant skin / from green rice (it helps skin cells breath)

 The cool part of Bio-Mimic Tech is that it continues to adjust hydration levels throughout the day!

 

 

Give me the benefits in a nutshell

  • Hydrates skin

  • Boosts radiance

  • Adapts to skin’s needs

 You’ll notice it feels different (like, incredible!). All because it instantly absorbs and skin immediately feels smoother and hydrated.

You say it’s safer, why?

Many skincare products on the market are not testing for human safety. Actually, its about a 80% of ingredients that are not testing and are potentially harmful!! Beautycounter only uses clean ingredients, here’s a few things that make their products safer for your health:

  • No harsh sulfates (such as SLS and SLES), which are commonly found in many face cleansers. Sulfates can cause skin irritation. Instead, Beautycounter uses jojoba seed oil to deliver the cleansing performance you love in a gentler way.

  • No commonly used mineral oils, silicone, or synthetic polymers, which are potentially harmful ingredients are used to make skin “feel” like its providing smooth skin. Instead, Beautycounter uses plant derived ingredients (such as squalene) to hydrate the skin.

  • No formaldehyde, a potentially carcinogenic preservative commonly used in creams which has also been linked to detrimental effects on the immune system. Formaldehyde can also be listed as formalin, formic aldehyde, merthaldehyde, methanol and oxomethane.

  • No PEG’s, which are commonly used in moisturizers. PEGs are often contaminated with measurable amounts of ethylene oxide and 1,4-dioxane, which are both carcinogens.

  • No synthetic fragrances, which can legally contain any combination of 3,000-plus stock chemical ingredients, including hormone disruptors and allergens.

Juanita’s faves from this regimen

I absolutely love what I’ve tried from this line. The Adaptive Moisture Lotion is my favorite moisturizer from all of Beautycounter. In fact, its my favorite moisturizer from ANY company at the moment. I’m just loving how my skin feels with it, so smooth and hydrated. In winter I absolutely recommend using the serum underneath it to combat dryness.
