COUNTERTIME REGIMEN

Tighten. Brighten. Enlighten.


I have been using this collection for a few weeks now and it is so easy. When you first get the box, it actually identifies the number / order you use each product. It smells wonderful, goes on smooth and an amazing collection to add to the beautycounter family. Here is a brief outline of the order to use the products in. 

Featuring plant-derived Retinatural Complex, this regimen is designed to visibly firm, plump, and brighten skin. Welcome to the new age of aging well.


Real Results

After just four weeks of use*:

91% of participants said skin felt renewed and looked revitalized 

97% said skin texture felt smoother

88% said skin looked more youthful 

88% said Countertime reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Here at Beautycounter, we believe that age is an attitude and good skin is a science. Our Countertime Collection is designed to visibly reverse signs of aging and deliver highperformance clean skin-care results, thanks to our innovative plant-derived Retinatural Complex.

Key Benefits

Optimized Hydration: Strengthens barrier function and supports skin elasticity. 

Visible Regeneration: Smooths and refines the surface of the skin.

Antioxidant Protection: Defends against daily environmental stressors.

Why Is It Safer?

Our plant-derived Retinatural Complex is a scientific breakthrough made from two powerhouse ingredients: bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine rose. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinol—without potentially harmful side effects—and Swiss Alpine rose boosts the skin’s antioxidant defense.

And, the Statement look comes with a Precision Liquid Liner – what?! 
Which you can also buy separately, of course. It’s amazing. I tried it and it applied amazingly and STAYED ON SO WELL – only coming off upon removal. My mom (who is 70 – sorry mom!) even tested it when she was recently here visiting and it applied beautifully for her, too. I gave her my tube since I’ve decided lately I’m into the no-liner look again, go figure.

Optimized for easy, precise application and featuring a rich matteblack formula, this liquid eyeliner is perfect for creating everything
from thin, sharp lines to thick, dramatic wings. Plus, its longwearing formula lasts up to 12 hours.

 

Want to know why Beautycounter cosmetics (and specifically the new pressed powders) are different from what’s on the market? Read on…

WHY DID WE REFORMULATE OUR POWDERS? 
We reformulated our powders to significantly increase performance but still meet our safety standards. The new powders have better payoff, which is the intensity of the color upon application, and are long-wearing. Additionally, the new powders are manufactured in the USA.

WHAT MAKES THE NEW MAKEUP POWDERS UNIQUE? 
Our powders deliver on four key criteria. We call them the ‘4 Ps’:
• PAYOFF: one-swipe full-color intensity. We select safer, artist-grade pigments that deliver rich color payoff.
• PRECISION: Our formula goes through a triple-milling process that grinds the ingredients to the most perfect, most precise particle size. The result is silky-smooth, blendable powders with even application.
• PERFORMANCE: long-wearing color. Our formula contains ‘Butterpowder,’ which is a natural binding ingredient that helps the powders attach to skin and stay on all day.
• PURITY: we screen every batch of our powders for heavy metals, to ensure we deliver higher-performing, significantly safer formulas. Additionally, all the new powder formulas are vegan, and the compacts are made with FSC-certified paper.
The eyeshadow, bronzer and highlighter compacts come with removable mirrors so that the package is recyclable and the mirror can be used separately later!

HOW ARE BEAUTYCOUNTER’S POWDERS SAFER THAN TRADITIONAL POWDERS?
We are very selective of the ingredients used in our formulations, in accordance with The Never List™. Additionally, we screen raw materials and our finished products to ensure they meet our strict safety standards. When it comes to colorants, out of the 153 cosmetic colorants allowed in the EU, and the 63 cosmetic colorants allowed in the US, Beautycounter prohibits the vast majority from being used in our products. We currently use 18 colorants in our cosmetics, 10 of which are “naturally-derived” and 8 of which are “synthetic” colorants. Through our rigorous screening and testing process, our commitment to transparent and ethical sourcing, and our proactive involvement at every step of the manufacturing process, we are able to fulfill our promise and provide you products that meet our standards of safety and performance.

WHAT IS BEAUTYCOUNTER’S PROCESS FOR SCREENING HEAVY METALS?
Heavy metals are naturally-occurring; therefore, some natural colorants carry the potential risk of heavy metal contamination. To help manage this risk, we are very selective with the colorants we use, and we test them rigorously. We test not only our pigments, but also each batch of our finished color cosmetic products to make sure they meet our stringent internal standards for safety.

DO THE NEW MAKEUP POWDERS CONTAIN TALC? 
Yes, the new Beautycounter makeup powders contain talc. Talc is a highly prevalent ingredient in makeup powders in general because it is absorbent, an anti-caking agent, and a skin protectant. We also choose talc because when compared with similar ingredients with the same cosmetic function, talc has lower heavy metal levels. The cosmetic industry standards require that cosmetic grade talc not contain any asbestos material. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) reports that talc is safe to be used in cosmetics up to 100% as long as there is no damage to the epidermal layer of the skin. Further, Beautycounter tests our raw materials to ensure that all of our products are 100% free of asbestos.

HOW DOES BEAUTYCOUNTER ENSURE THAT THE MICA WE USE IS SOURCED ETHICALLY?
We have developed a Supplier Code of Conduct that helps us engage with our suppliers, and improve practices throughout the supply chain. As part of this process, we have ensured compliance by securing documentation from our mica suppliers that they do not engage in child labor practices.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE NEW POWDER HIGHLIGHTERS AND THE CREAM OPTIONS:
The differences between these two products are the finish and the application. Illuminating Cream Highlighter delivers a dewy sheen, while Luminous Powder Highlighter delivers a powder sheen. Illuminating Cream Highlighter can be applied directly to bare skin or on top of liquid foundation, and blended with fingertips. Luminous Powder Highlighter should be applied with a brush, such as Fan Powder Brush, on bare skin or on top of Mattifying Powder.

Is The Moisturizer You’re Slathering on Your Face Regulated?

Is the moisturizer you’re slathering on your face regulated? Do you even know?

Lets say I woke up this morning and wanted to create a homemade batch of moisturizer. Lets say my friends loved it which then inspired me to make more and sell it online. I even used my super cool printer to make those awesome labels. Do you know that I could go ahead and start and there is no paperwork needed. I don’t even have to go through the rigorous FDA pre-market approval process.

Would you still want to use my homemade moisturizer?

How can there be no paperwork needed? It’s because cosmetics, which are monitored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have limited to no regulation that require companies of any size to comply with.

Now of course the FDA does require some labelling, but that means that some companies can easily avoid listing a product’s ingredients by claiming that by doing so would give away trade secrets. Further more, manufacturers don’t have to report health complaints to the FDA.

Now before I continue, lets me ask this again.

Would you want to use or even buy my homemade moisturizer?

Let me be honest, I know if I were in your shoes, I would probably be hesitant in buying to trying the moisturizer. Good news, I have a solution to your moisturizer needs that you can trust.
