Beautycounter Facial Oils and Masks – Which Ones are Right for You?

Rachel Vrabel Last Updated: October 28, 2017 1

Beautycounter face oil 1I’m excited to share this as I’ve been enjoying the array of Beautycounter Facial Oils and masks all summer long! Who knew my skin would love these oils?!

If you haven’t tried facial oils, or are afraid to, don’t be! You just have to choose the right one and I guarantee you’ll LOVE the results. Facial Oils and masks should be a part of every woman’s anti-aging routine.

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.

Beautycounter No. 1 Brightening + Vitamin C Facial Oil

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.Beautycounter lightening mask

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.

Beautycounter No. 2 Plumping + Jasmine Facial Oil

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.

This is my welcome friend if my skin feels dry or drab, or the fine lines and forehead wrinkles look more prominent than normal. Beautycounter face oil 2

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!

Beautycounter No. 3 Balancing Oil + Ylang Ylang Facial Oil

beautycounter balancing oil reviewsIf you have combination skin, tend to get oily in your T zone, or have acne prone skin, the No. 3 Balancing Oil will restore your skin’s balance and help even your skin tone. It works like a charm!

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.Beautycounter Balancing mask results

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

Beautycounter ingredientsBeautycounter is leading the pack on the safer skin care revolution.

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.

There’s nothing more relaxing that drawing a bath, lighting some candles and choosing a mask based on how my skin is feeling.Beautycounter face mask 2

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!

If you’re a skin care junkie like me and you want to try all three of the oils before deciding on one, take a peek at the Facial Oil Mini’s in the 2017 Holiday Collection, these small jars are a great way to try each one and only $21!

They also offer a Multi-Masker Set of all three masks for $51.

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.

    Hi Rachel, thanks for such a thorough review! I’d been debating between the Brightening and Balancing Oil so I ordered the mini set to try them all! I’ve already been using the BC Countermatch lotion and love these products!
