This Is The One Product That Keeps My Skin From Looking Dull During The Winter

If your skin is anything like mine, then you already know the cold weather is no friend of ours. Just a few days out in the dry, frigid air and my skin that I so thoughtfully care for is dull and screaming for help.

Given my commitment to good skincare, I’m no stranger to nourishing, hydrating facial oils and creams. But after a few particularly cold days, my skin needed something more to give it a serious brightening boost. I turned to Beautycounter, one of my favorite brands. Their Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel is clinically proven to boost skin radiance and help improve skin texture using only clean, safe ingredients, so I decided to put it to the test.

I should mention here that I am not normally a fan of any product or treatment with the word “peel” in it. I still vividly remember that episode of Sex and the City where Samantha gets a peel right before Carrie’s book launch party and what it did to her skin. I can’t shake the memory, so I always approach any kind of peel with extreme caution.

Luckily, I’m happy to report that after about three weeks of using Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel my skin doesn’t look like Samantha’s did (nor did it ever during the course of my test run). Instead, despite it’s name as a peel, this product goes on like a creamy, slightly milky serum that never burned, dried-out or irritated my skin. In fact, I usually apply it right before bed and by the time my head hits the pillow it doesn’t even feel like I’ve put anything on my skin. That’s how lightweight and non-irritating it is.

I started noticing a difference after about two weeks of using this peel every two days or so. My skin looks brighter and feels bouncier as soon as I wake up, but after I wash my face it’s like I don’t even need moisturizer. That’s how healthy and radiant my skin is after a night with this goodness on it.

The magic ingredient that make this peel so effective? A non-drying, non-irritating multi-acid complex that clears away dull surface cells to reveal a brighter complexion. It sounds simple, but it’s actually extremely complicated to check all the boxes Beautycounter has managed to check with this peel. Made with clean, safe ingredients? Check. Doesn’t dry out your skin? Check. Won’t burn or irritate your skin? Check. Actually works? Big check!

If you’re so over dull skin, don’t even think twice about adding Beautycounter’s Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel to your skincare regimen. It’s pricey, but you only need to use a small amount to see a big difference.
