Countertime is one of the most recent line added to the skincare line, consisting of a face wash, enlightening treatment pads, radiance firming complex, uplifting day cream, nourishing cleansing balm, restorative night cream and vibrant eye perfector all of which are to help and assist with “reversing” the aging process. This line was developed because so many of the traditional anti-aging products out there contain retinyl. Retinyl (not to be confused with Retinol) produces free radicals that can damage DNA. According to the Cosmetic Database, “it as a moderate hazard ingredient. It warns of potential side effects including cancer, developmental and reproductive toxicity, violations, restrictions and warnings, cellular level changes, and organ system toxicity.” You may read about Retinyl from “Truth in Aging“.
This product line is free of the widely-used toxic preservatives that you will normally find in today’s skincare line.
Soothing Face Wash is great for even those with Rosacea, a fresh scent that gently cleanses and nourishes your skin yet strong enough to remove make-up!
Enlightening Treatment Pads are used to reduce large pores as well as the signs of aging from daily stressors in approximately 4 weeks of use.
Radiance Firming Complex combats wrinkles and discoloration and approximately 72% of women reported an increase in firmness after 8 weeks of use.
Uplifting Day Cream promotes firmer-looking skin and boosts the skin’s natural defense against environment stress. Uplifting Day Cream does not contain retinol or retinyl palmitate (forms of vitamin A), two of the most common ingredients in anti-aging products. When vitamin A is exposed to UV light, it can produce free radicals that damage DNA, cause gene mutations and may play a part in causing cancer.
Nourishing Cleansing Balm is THE most popular product and is currently low in stock but should be available for shipping towards the end of December 2014. This has many uses from a face wash, to a eye make up remover, night moisturizer/mask, a botanical Botox, or to provide extra TLC to the dry skin on my feet, knees and elbows…or a diaper cream for the kids
Restorative Night Cream Restorative Night Cream promotes beautiful, healthy-looking skin by locking in moisture as you sleep.
Vibrant Eye Perfector a BEST seller, helps to reduce puffiness and fine lines.
Cleansing Cloths come in a pack of 3 which can be used with the Nourishing Cleansing Balm, they are much softer than traditional washcloths and can be used over again.
