All Bright Triple Acid AHA Toner

AHAs are all the rage right now, and with great reason! I know I've personally seen instant results from using AHA products, particularly the Reflect Effect AHA Smoothing Facial Mask... so I was super excited to give the AHA Toner a try.

This brightening toner is a fantastic pore-refining formula blended with AHAs, beta hydroxy acid, kombucha, and niacinamide. The goal? To help exfoliate skin and stimulate cell turnover (something I'm always working on as my cell turnover is naturally painfully slow!)

"Pore-refining" means it helps to improve and minimize the appearance of pores. I view this product as a great option for all skin types and all genders!

Key Ingredients:

Keep in mind, Beautycounter has a strict 1,800+ Never List of questionable or harmful ingredients that will never be used in their products. Each ingredient is screened against 23 health and environmental endpoints, so you can be confident the formulas are safe for use. You can read more here if interested.

  • Niacinamide + Salicylic Acid (beta hydroxy acid): helps improve the appearance of dark spots and brighten skin

  • AHA Complex: Blend of glycolic and lactic acids exfoliates dead skin to stimulate cell turnover

  • Phytic Acid: Gently exfoliates to aid in cell turnover to help skin breathe for a natural glow

  • Kombucha: Fermented black tea, which helps smooth skin and improve skin radiance

How to Use:

Pour onto a cotton pad and swipe over clean, dry face. Use 1-2 times a week, gradually increasing to once-daily use.

I've only been able to use this a couple times at the time of publishing. I used it in the morning on a cotton pad. There was some tingling (to be expected) but my skin looked more radiant and felt exfoliated. After a couple uses, WOW did it help my cell turnover (I've been searching for years for a product to help with this!)

The toner pairs nicely with the Countersun Daily Sheer Defense for Face sun protection (I'm fanatical about face SPF and wearing hats outside!)

Warning: Use only as directed. Avoid eye contact. If irritation persists, discontinue use and consult a physician. Cover areas where AHAs have been applied with sunscreen prior to exposure to the sun and for a week after use.

How to Incorporate into Your Routine:

To add into your routine, start just by swapping out your prep (2nd-toner or essence) step in the morning 1-2 times a week, and gradually increasing if you feel your skin needs more.

Here is an example of use with Countermatch (very popular line best for normal to dry skin)

All Bright C Serum

Since its launch in 2020, the All Bright C Serum has been Beautycounter's #1 seller by far and to date and has close to 8,000 five-star reviews!!!

Beautycounter All Bright C Serum

It is the only serum my semi-sensitive skin will tolerate!! It's a fabulous formula that I'd recommend to ANY one's skin routine - even my 85+ year old grandma uses it!

Vitamin C is a superfood powerhouse for skin and many products on the market are not stable, meaning the potency decreases over time. Not only is the version ultra-stable, it has 2 different forms of Vitamin C.

Why is it necessary? The C Serum is proven to help with:

  • Dark spot prevention

  • Even skin tone

  • Brightening skin

  • Providing hydration

  • Antioxidant protection

All Bright C Serum is clinically proven to even skin tone and improve skin radiance/brightness.*

*Based off a 32-subject clinical study after eight weeks.

After eight weeks:**

  • 100% said skin looked brighter

  • 94% said it reduced the appearance of dark spots

  • 97% said skin looked more youthful

  • 94% said skin t one looked more even

**Based on a 32-subject consumer perception study after eight weeks of use.

All Bright Brightening Facial Oil

Beautycounter All Bright Brightening Facial Oil

This is an oldie, but goodie Beautycounter facial oil product that has gone through so many transformations the last 8 years I've been with the company, but I think it finally found where it belongs!

This is simply an updated recyclable glass bottle - no changes to the already loved and effective formula.

Key Ingredients:

  • Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldeyl Ascorbate): Helps visibly brighten skin

  • Avocado Oil: Rich in vitamins B, D, and E for intense hydration

  • Black Currant Oil: Rich in omegas to help aid in healthy skin barrier function

My favorite way to use is to add a drop or two to my moisturizers in the AM or PM. I love the light citrus scent.

Start with AHA Toner, Get an Instant Glow with the C Serum, Hydrate and Replenish with the Brightening Oil
