After trying out a good amount of beauty products throughout the years, I found it to be difficult to find products that are effective, containing only safe ingredients, and make me feel confident and beautiful.

When I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s last year ( an auto immune disease that affects the thyroid), it became even more important to me to find non-toxic products that were also high performing. That all changed when I started doing my night-time facial routine with the Countertime line from Beauty Counter. 

Beauty Counter has grown as a company providing high-quality products that are beneficial, and ACTUALLY good for you!

BeautyCounter is a mission based company. The mission of BeautyCounter is to make women feel their best self without worrying about what’s in their beauty products. They want to get clean beauty in the hands of as many people as possible.

How awesome is that?

Let me first say: Their products are awesome! And I really don’t want you to be scared off by the price tag either – The products will require you to use only a little and therefore last a very long time. If you invest in it twice a year, you’ll be good to go! And I would say that makes it a bargain and well worth it, considering the radiant glow you’ll acquire! 

Counter time products are a safe alternative to retinol. I usually follow this routine when getting ready for bed: 

After washing the day’s sweat off of my face, I start with a cleanser. For that, I use the Countertime Lipid Defense Cleansing Oil, which feels wonderful and nourishes my skin with everything that it needs. 

This I follow up with their amazing Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence, a much better version of a regular toner; bringing that above mentioned glow to your face! 

Then I will apply the Countertime Ultra Renewal Eye Cream, which is a serious favorite of mine! After just a few weeks of using this product, my eyes started to brighten up and to look much healthier (and may I say, younger!). 

Because I live in Florida and my skin usually doesn’t get dry, I skip the niggt cream and only go for the serum. I use Countertime Tripeptide Radiance Serum, which is one of their bestsellers for a good reason! Your skin will feel and look firm, hydrated, and reduce wrinkles in a heartbeat. 

It’s by far the most sensual and luxurious line I’ve ever tried, and that’s also how it make me feel after a long day filled with school pick-ups, work, Instagram, and all the other things that busy women deal with on a daily basis. We owe it to ourselves to take those 15-20 minutes at the end of the day to pamper ourselves.
