Countertime: Age is an attitude and beautiful skin is a science. The Countertime Collection is designed to visibly reverse signs of aging and deliver high performance beyond clean skin-care results, thanks to our innovative plant-derived Retinatural Complex. This Complex is a safer alternative to retinol, and the powerhouse ingredient in Countertime. It is composed of Bakuchiol and Swiss Alpine Rose. Traditionally used in Chinese and Ayurvedic skin-care remedies, Bakuchiol delivers many of retinol’s skin benefits – Without irritation. Swiss Alpine Rose is grown at the highest altitudes of the Alps, this flower is known for its ability to protect itself against environmental stressors like dehydration and helps boost skin’s antioxidant defense. Countertime works by promoting skin’s moisture barrier, visibly plumps and firms skin, and improves resilience. Welcome to the new age of aging well.

Step 1: Cleanse with Countertime Lipid Defense Cleansing Oil. Dispense 2-3 pumps into hands and massage onto dry face and eyes. Apply enough warm water to form a light milk, then rinse clean.
