Goodbye oily & acne-prone skin! Introducing Countercontrol

I'm thrilled to introduce our newest (and most affordable) collection... Countercontrol. Countercontrol is a powerful regimen for oily and blemish-prone skin without the irritation that can result from conventional treatments. Think teens are the only ones suffering from these skin issues? Think again! While approximately 70% of the population ages 15-29 suffer from oily skin or acne, about 50% of adults ages 20-40 struggle, too... and it's not limited to one ethnicity. Countercontrol is formulated with a proprietary blend called SkinBalance Complex, a combination of two extracts:

  • Natural salicylic acid from wintergreen helps exfoliate dead skin cells and restore the imbalance of bacteria to a healthy level

  • Rosebay willow helps reduce irritation and decrease sebum production

I have been testing this collection on and off since May... and I can officially say that the Clean Pore Cleanser (in the AM), All Over Acne Treatment (around my chin and nose), and SOS Spot Treatment will all be products I keep in my regular routine. I put them to the test this week with a hormonal breakout I had pop up. Within 2 days, I could cover it with foundation only - the red inflammation and pain had almost completely disappeared! MORE COUNTERCONTROL DETAILS

In an independent consumer study, after four weeks of using Countercontrol*:

  • 95% said skin looks clearer

  • 100% stated skin feels healthier

  • 100% said skin clarity is improved

  • 95% said skin looks less red

*Based on independent 24-subject consumer panel study after four weeks with twice daily usage of Clear Pore Cleanser, All Over Acne Treatment, SOS Acne Spot Treatment, Matte Effect Gel Cream. What are the main causes of oily skin and acne?

  • Overproduction of sebum

  • Thickening of the outer layer of the skin (aka buildup of dead skin cells - why exfoliation is key!)

  • Excessive and unbalanced bacterial growth

  • Skin inflammation

... often it's a combination of products AND improving gut health (aka food and healing leaky gut) that contributes to optimal results. What makes Countercontrol different? Unlike conventional acne and oil control products which can strip skin of both bad and good bacteria, leaving it red, dry and irritated, Countercontrol treats the main causes of acne while maintaining skin’s healthy microflora to keep skin in balance. Additionally, Countercontrol is formulated without potentially harmful ingredients such as harsh surfactants, benzoyl peroxide, and sulfur commonly found in conventional acne products.


I realize it is difficult to purchase a product you can't try and see in person. Rest assured, Beautycounter includes an AMAZING 60-day no questions asked FREE return label in every box, but I also provide samples as a consultant! Please click here to request your samples. Let me know what you want to try and where to mail them.

After answering a few quick questions, you will be recommended a customized, 4-piece skin care set available for a special 10% savings, along with two additional recommended products.

Of course, I will ALWAYS keep my skincare consultation form open because I personally still like connecting with a live person, but I'm thankful to provide this useful tool and savings to you as well!
