Beautycounter has oils that I rave about – even though I have oily skin, they work so well for me. I’ve written about them here and here just for starters. Now they have a Countermatch line that’s just for skin that doesn’t need oil all the time. That means that it’s great for everyday because it’s not as heavy as an oil.
The line has a serum ($48), a lotion ($48), eye cream ($39), and a moisture recovery sleeping cream ($55).
I have the Countermatch lotion and it’s incredibly light and smooth. I would have sworn that it has silicones in it, but it’s actually formulated with silicones or any synthetic polymers. So the slip in the lotion is thanks to other ingredients.
Here’s the full ingredient list:
Aqua/Water/Eau, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, pentylene glycol, Prunus Domestica (Plum) Seed Extract, Glycerin, C12-16 Alcohols, Squalane, C10-18 Triglycerides, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Palmitic Acid, Olus/Vegetable Oil/Huile végétale, Arginine, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Phytic Acid, Behenyl Alcohol, Xanthan Gum, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Salicylic Acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Candelilla Cera/Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax/Cire de candelilla.
Actually the ingredients for every single product is listed on the Beautycounter website, which is another thing that I love about the brand – they are transparent, and they have standards for all the products that they come out with.
The Countermatch lotion is light and satisfying on my skin. I use it at night after my retinol and sometimes in the morning after my toner.
