Beautycounter: I introduced you to this amazing, mission-focused company in this article. I’ve been talking about it on Facebook and I’ve gone on and on about it on my YouTube videos. Honestly, I am smitten with this company and their products.
Admittedly, I am new to the company and have not been exposed to each and every product, but of those I have used regularly and for at least several months, there are some standout winners in my book. As I have the opportunity to try more products and can speak about them personally, I will be adding to this page. For now, I want to share my #1 favorite product with you. But check back often, because this list will grow!
#1 – Aptly named the No. 1 Brightening Spa Set. This set of products contains a facial oil, mask and mist. Not only does each product smell great and feel nice on my skin, they have made a tremendous difference in my skin tone.
Take a look at the pictures below: In the picture on the left where I’m enjoying some ice cream sans all makeup, what looks like a shadow on the side of my face is really a great big patch of hyper-pigmented skin (there’s a matching patch on the other cheek). I could have lightened this with some pretty harsh products from my dermatologist, but instead, I’ve been using the No. 1 Brightening oil daily, the mask once or twice a week, and the mist after I wash my face.
Can you tell a difference in the after pictures? I do have on eye makeup and lip sheer in those pictures on the right, but nothing on my face!
My tip regarding these products: After I smooth my moisturizer plus the oil all over my face, I simply rub the backs of my hands with whatever is remaining on my fingers. And, some of those pesky “age” spots on my hands have lightened as well.
This is what the Beautycounter website says about these products, “Antioxidant-rich vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of age spots for a brighter, more even complexion. Perfect for all skin types and those concerned with dull, uneven skin tone.”
Bottom line, I enjoy using this set of products because they’re gentle on my skin, I love the light, citrusy scent, and I am noticing a dramatic improvement in my skin tone!
I recommend the set of travel sized products that I’m showing in the photograph, but you can buy a full-sized set as well or each product individually. If you’re working with a budget that only allows you to buy one product for now, go with the oil. You will not be sorry.
