I'm almost 40...
I am 38 years old and in less than two years, I will be celebrating my 40th birthday. To be completely honest, this doesn't scare me at all. In fact, I welcome this milestone because of all the amazing things that have come along with the aging process that I have experienced over the past ten years. For one, I am WAY smarter than I was in my 20s. I also have better eyebrows. And healthier skin.
When I was younger, I was obsessed with using the best products on my body, whether it was the latest summer scent from Issey Miyake or a $300 jar of Creme de la Mer. I truly believed that if it had a good name, it was not only good for me, but sure to make me look and feel my best. I was very wrong in that thinking. I have tried everything - and I mean everything, in the hopes of discovering one (or two, or maybe three) amazing products that really worked to give my skin the most youthful, glowing results.
Like anyone else, I am skeptical of companies that claim their product is a miracle in a bottle. However, all the pretty packaging and testimonials can usually sway me to try anything at least once. That's exactly what happened with Beautycounter. Initially, I loved the sleek packaging, safer ingredients and direct selling model however, it was their coveted Facial Oils that really caught my attention. I needed to try these high performing products and so I did. After 9 months of using Safer, Cleaner beauty, I decided to join this relatively new company because I loved their products and did not want to have a "What If" moment five years from now. That said, I am still very happy with my decision to take the job but I have definitely found my favourite products. One product in particular has been a total game changer for my skin.
The latest serum to be revealed by Beautycounter has been a best seller since the moment it launched. The Overnight Resurfacing Peel is formulated with 15 botanically-derived acids, is a leave-on AHA/BHA peel that improves skin texture and minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and dark spots without irritation or over-drying. Believe me, this stuff really works! Glycolic, lactic, and malic acids clear away dull surface skin cells, while hyaluronic acid and essential fatty acids soothe and nourish to reveal a brighter, more youthful-looking complexion.
At only $75 CAN per bottle, I can tell you with all honesty that this is literally the best bang for your buck in terms of a skincare product that is not only uber safe for your skin, but will also make a noticeable difference in the shortest period of time. For anyone stressed about turning 40 (or 50 or 60), now is the perfect time to take action and sit pretty at your next birthday party. Choosing safer skincare has never looked or smelled so good.
