I’m a firm believer that facial oils and masks should be a part of every woman’s anti-aging routine!
I’m excited to share this as I’ve been enjoying the array of Beautycounter Facial Oils and masks for the past six months. Who knew my skin would love these oils?!
There’s an oil for brightening and lightening, one for plumping, and one for balancing the skin. There’s also a targeted mask to enhance your results, or to use on its own.
The oils are light and absorb quickly to feed and balance the skin, never feeling heavy or “greasy.” This is the magic in the Beautycounter facial oils, they feel fabulous and make your skin glow!
I use the facial oils after I use the masks, under my moisturizer, or alone – there are many ways to use them effectively, and they smell wonderful!
Since I’ve been using all three of the Beautycounter Facial Oils, I’ll share why I love each one and give you some tips on which one is right for you.
If your skin is dull, has an uneven tone, redness, brown spotting or just needs a boost for a more youthful glow – the No. 1 Brightening Oil is a miracle worker!
I spend a lot of time in the sun (always with SPF protection) but the sun still sneaks through, and I’ve always had issues with hyper-pigmentation with some pinkness as well. For these issues, Vitamin C is my friend!
The Brightening Oil lightens, brightens and evens the skin tone. This citrus-scented facial oil penetrates and absorbs quickly to replenish and awaken dull, tired skin.
Silky smooth in texture and lightweight, the Brightening Oil contains a blend of seven natural oils to improve radiance and to moisturize.
With antioxidant Vitamin C and omega-rich Marula oil, it’s the perfect blend for lightening and brightening!
Tip: Use the No. 1 Brightening + Vitamin C Mask 2x a week for instant lightening results! You can use up to 3x a week for more stubborn spots.
My face is always instantly lighter and with an even, healthy glow when I use the mask followed by the oil.
It’s great to use before a big night out (or just an average Saturday night if you’re a homebody like me!) These products always make me feel so pampered.
And cold climates – this is a MUST HAVE! The protective layer from the cold wind outside and dry heat inside wreak havoc on the skin.
It plumps, hydrates and nourishes dry skin, firms, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the spot!
Dabbing on wrists and behind ears, it also doubles as a natural, calming fragrance.
Fragrant jasmine oil puts back lost moisture, while omega-rich Argan oil reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
If your skin is dehydrated, it’s going to show all the imperfections, so drink some additional water and apply this oil and you’re going to see your face transform! It’s also a good idea to seal it in with a moisturizer on top.
The Rejuvenating Night Cream is my favorite to use over the Plumping oil since it has the most potent anti-aging ingredients of all the Beautycounter creams. Tons of Vitamin C!
Tip: Use the No. 2 Plumping + Peony mask prior to the oil twice a week to increase firmness and elasticity!
Sometimes people with oily skin end up stripping the skin so it’s not so oily, but then your skin over-produces oil to try to balance itself back out so you’re actually making the condition worse.
Give your skin the moisture it needs and it won’t have to work so hard!
This oil contains softening meadowfoam seed oil which restores balance, while wild chamomile and ylang ylang flower oil soothes and calms the skin.
Even those with normal skin types can use this oil for a flawless and balanced look either alone or under makeup that will last all day.
This is actually my favorite oil for daytime use under my makeup, my skin just drinks it up and it’s smooth and lightweight.
My favorite day cream to pair with the No. 3 Balancing Oil is the Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion since it’s very lightweight and adjusts your hydration levels as your environment changes.
It’s one of their best sellers and you can read my personal review of Countermatch here.
Tip: Use the No. 3 Balancing + Charcoal Mask 2x a week to draw out impurities, shrink pores, smooth and refine the skin. I love using this one after the beach or volleyball when my face is a mess from sunscreen and sweat.
Why I Love Beautycounter Products
They have a “Never List” of over 1,500 harmful or questionable chemicals they will never use in their skin care.
We have enough toxins in our environment, why put them into your skin??
These are luxurious, pampering products that bring results!
I’ve noticed that my hyper-pigmentation spots have gotten much lighter since I’ve been using the Brightening mask and oil, and more plump, smoother skin overall since I’ve incorporated these oils into my daily routine.
Or, use a little of the Balancing charcoal mask on T-zone, and Plumping and/or Brightening wherever you feel you need it! Sometimes I get a little carried away! 😉
Recommendation & Where to Purchase Beautycounter
Beautycounter is not a retail product so you have to purchase online from a consultant (like me).
There are a few different options if you’d like to try the Beautycounter Facial Oils, Masks or the Spritzers and highly recommend trying these products if you need a treat for your skin!
They are effective for anti-aging and work immediately to brighten, lighten, plump or balance – whatever your need is. And the fact that they don’t use any harmful ingredients is a huge plus!
All three of these collections are also offered in spa sizes, which are bigger than the holiday size, but smaller than the full-sized, and also contain the spritzers! And then there’s always the full-sized collections.
