MY ONE  MUST HAVE SKINCARE PRODUCT AT 28 
(Keep reading if you like free products!) 

Did you guys know I turned 28 this past August? Well, over the past couple of years I've gotten pretty serious about my skincare routine. Give me ALL of the eye cream! Today  I want to share the one product I honestly won't go without.  The Beautycounter Overnight Resurfacing Peel. I added this to my nightly skincare routine about five months ago and it has completely changed the way my skin looks AND feels. When someone ask me what is my MUST HAVE Beautycounter product, the peel it is. 

Just to give you an idea of the Overnight Resurfacing Peel is, it is a leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and boosts clarity without irritation or over-drying. And I might add that this product, like all of the Beautycoutner products, smells Ah-mazing! With glycolic, malic, and botanically derived lactic acid, the formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter complexion. I use this after washing my face with the Nourashing Cream Exfoliator, about three times a week! 

How does it work? To start: nine resurfacing acids work together to renew the epidermal cells by removing dead skin cells from the stratum corneum. Next: a combination of six soothing acids re hydrates and replenishes skin. This peel is safer than most others because it is formulated without synthetic fragrances, PEGs and formaldehyde releasing preservatives commonly found in other peels. 

How to use: 

Apply 1 to 2 pumps to clean face and neck, and leave on overnight. May tingle upon application. Allow product to fully absorb (3 to 5 minutes), then follow with a moisturizer. Use every other night.               
Here's a little breakdown of the benefits of the key ingredients. 


Glycolic acid: improves skin texture, resurfaces, exfoliates
Lactic acid: stimulates cell renewal promoting smoother, brighter,
younger-looking skin
Malic acid: decreases the appearance of fine lines
Citric Acid: evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of
dark spots
Hyaluronic acid: hydrates skin and helps it retain moisture
Fatty acids: including omegas 3 & 6, maintain skin’s barrier
to prevent moisture loss, smooth skin, and provide antioxidant
