If you follow me on Social (FB/Insta), you have likely already heard me raving about the new Beautycounter Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask. Many of you have tried it, love it, and have asked me, “Where does this fit into my Countertime Routine?”
It’s an excellent question, and, as always, I have the answer! If you do your mask in the evening, see below for your Beautycounter Countertime with Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask: AM Routine! This should be your morning routine on Tuesdays & Thursdays.
How to use: Dispense 2-3 pumps into hand and massage onto dry face and eye area. Add warm water to form light milk, then rinse clean. Use morning and night. Washcloth optional while rinsing. Pat dry.
*Let Essence dry thoroughly.
How to use: Gently, but quickly, spread a small dollop over clean, dry skin.
Set a timer for 10 minutes. Do not leave on longer than 10 minutes.
Wet hands and gently, without rubbing, remove the mask by continuing to rinse with water and lightly going over your face with your fingers in a circular motion.
Important: Please choose 2 mornings/evenings per week and use consistently. For example, I use my Reflect Effect Mask on Tuesdays/Thursdays and my Overnight Resurfacing Peel on Monday/Wednesday/Friday.
After your mask is removed, you will reapply your essence. This time, though, the essence will be still be wet on your face when you proceed to the next step.
Apply serum immediately to face still damp with Essence.
How to use: Dispense 1-2 pumps into the hand. Smooth onto face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use morning and night. Rub remaining into hands!
Pro Tip: Brush your teeth with a non-toxic toothpaste while the serum soaks into your skin. I also floss after I put on my 2nd treat step to give it a minute to soak in before my moisturizer
How to use: Apply the product with your ring finger. Gently pat around the eye area until fully absorbed. Use morning and night.
Note: if the Countertime eye cream is too heavy for you to put makeup on right away try the Countermatch Eye Cream for daytime and the Countertime eye cream at night.
How to use: Dispense 1-2 pumps into the hand. Smooth onto face, neck, and décolletage with upward strokes. Use daily in the AM.
5. Sun Protection
I take a break, letting all of that soak in, and enjoy my breakfast. Before I start applying any makeup, I put on Countersun Daily Sheer Defense For Face – SPF 25. Wearing an SPF is essential even in the winter because it blocks blue light from computers and cell phones (which damages our skin) and sun (UV) exposure from windows and time outside.
As always, if you have any questions, please ask. If you have any Before/After results to share, I love to see those too!
