Beautycounter’s Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion is lightweight and helps the skin adapt to varying conditions by adjusting hydration and oxygen levels as you need it.
With breakthrough plant based Bio-Mimic technology, it has the ability to exactly match the skin’s structure to give it exactly what it needs, when it needs it.
Doesn’t this sound fantastic? A hydrating lotion that conforms to your ever-changing environment? I thought it did, so I decided to give it a try!

Beautycounter Never List – Safer Beauty
If you’re not familiar with Beautycounter’s safer beauty standards, let me fill you in! This company leads the pack with their vision to get safer beauty and personal care products into the hands of everyone!
Beautycounter has a NEVER LIST of over 1,500 banned chemicals that are either harmful or questionable that they will never use in their products.
Pretty awesome right? I thought so, and quite frankly I’m tired of reading labels with confusing ingredients, and I’m not a scientist!
Beautycounter products are made WITHOUT any of the following (to name a few of the top offendors!)
- Parabens: preservatives commonly used to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. Parabens are endocrine (hormone) disruptors, which may alter important hormone mechanisms in our bodies.
- Phthalates: a class of plasticizing chemicals used to make products more pliable or to make fragrances stick to skin. Phthalates disrupt the endocrine system and may cause birth defects.
- Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate: SLS and SLES are surfactants (sudsing agents) that can cause skin irritation or trigger allergies. These chemicals are often contaminated with a toxic byproduct (1,4-dioxane).

My Experience using Beautycounter
So I have four months under my belt so far using Beautycounter products, and I’ve tried them all! I’m a bit of a skin care junkie and there is something special and unique about each product. I’m impressed with the entire line.
The Rejuvenating line contains more powerful anti-aging ingredients (including Vitamin C which I love), but the Nourishing line is coconut oil based and oh so gentle and soothing and great for sensitive skin or rosacea.
But what if you want just one cream to carry you through the day and night? This is where the Countermatch Lotion shines!
Countermatch Lotion for both a Day and Night Cream
What attracted me to the Countermatch Lotion was it’s adaptability.
My environment is constantly changing – I’m working in my home office (where my husband keeps it cold and dry with a dehumidifier), I’m going to the gym, I’m playing beach volleyball, hitting the grocery store, etc.
This is a lotion that I feel I can use either am or pm for a smooth look that remains consistent throughout the day and night.
It doesn’t turn “greasy” when you get into a little humidity, and it keeps my skin hydrated in my freezing office!
The Countermatch Lotion has a silky, smooth feel and glides over the skin effortlessy.
Its fragrance is light and natural, almost like if you picked up a plum seed and smelled it! It’s super hard for me to define smells, and I don’t like overly fragrant skin care (I have sensitive eyes).
Countermatch Lotion is gentle and does not irritate my sensitive eyes. It gives my skin the perfect hydration level, and I don’t even feel like I need a serum underneath it.
It moisturizes, hydrates, calms, and it comes in a pump which I love! A pump keeps the product fresh and the bacteria out.
My skin always looks fabulous when I use this lotion and it has plenty of anti-aging ingredients to keep my wrinkles at bay and my skin looking healthy, vibrant and youthful.
It creates a perfectly smooth base for makeup, and it’s wonderful as a night time ritual that will meet your anti-aging needs.
Where is Beautycounter Sold and How much is the Countermatch Lotion?
Beautycounter is not a retail product so you won’t find it in stores. You can purchase the Beautycounter Countermatch Lotion here from my Beautycounter online store.
My picture will come up, just click “start shopping.” The price for a 1.7 oz tube (with a pump) is $48.
I’ve been looking for a skin care line to match not only my personal needs and wants in a skin care, but what my followers on Women’s Blog Talk have been asking for.
It’s becoming more and more important to women to choose safer skin care. Why would you choose otherwise?
The Beautycounter Countermatch Lotion is a great choice for all skin types. It’s hydrating yet adaptable to any condition so it’s perfect for all environments.
It can be used as both a day cream and a night cream and is packed with powerful anti-oxidants, vitamins and nourishing ingredients which will leave your skin more vibrant, radiant and refreshed!
