Beautycounter’s Overnight Resurfacing Peel has the nickname of “Botox in a bottle” for good reason, yet it’s a clean beauty product! It’s the product that made me fall in love with Beautycounter and also what made me decide to become a consultant. It brightens skin, fades discoloration, smooths fine lines and minimizes pore size…it’s a workhorse of a product that makes this tired mom of 3 little ones look a little more fresh-faced than I feel sometimes. It’s the product I wax poetic about on Stories and recommend to everyone. Read on to learn about this clean beauty treatment, how to use it, and how it can fit into any skincare routine for virtually any skin type!
So what exactly is the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?
“Featuring a proprietary multi-acid complex, this leave-on AHA/BHA peel improves skin texture and boosts clarity without irritation or over-drying. With glycolic, malic, and botanically derived lactic acid, the formula clears away dull surface cells, while arginine and essential fatty acids help soothe to reveal a brighter, healthier looking, renewed complexion.”
Glycolic Acid: improves skin texture, resurfaces, exfoliates.
Lactic Acid: stimulates cell renewal promoting a smoother, radiant-looking complexion.
Citric Acid: helps refine and renew skin.
Arginine & Fatty Acids: aid in conditioning and moisturizing skin.
How do you use the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?
It’s recommended to use the Overnight Resurfacing Peel every other night, and that’s how I use it. In the evening I’ll wash my face, pat on my Countertime Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence, and when the essence is still wet on my face I’ll apply one pump of the Overnight Resurfacing Peel to my face and neck and any residual product I’ll apply to my décolletage and the backs of my hands. (You certainly don’t need to use an essence or toner, just apply it onto a clean face if you don’t have one in your routine.) Next, I wait 3-5 minutes for it to fully absorb and then I’ll move on to applying my anti-aging night cream and eye cream overtop. DO NOT WASH IT OFF UNTIL THE MORNING, since it works its magic and deeply exfoliates while you sleep. In the morning I’ll wash it off with something that does a good job of sloughing off dead skin, like the Countercontrol Clear Pore Cleanser (it has gentle little beads in it) or I’ll use a spinning facial brush with the Charcoal Cleansing Bar.
No matter what products you’re currently using (Beautycounter or another brand), the Overnight Resurfacing Peel can be worked into your routine. Just apply as a step between cleansing and moisturizing and you’re good to go!
What are the benefits of the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?
The Overnight Resurfacing Peel gives you brighter skin, it fades discoloration (including melasma, which was my primary concern when I first started using it), it helps smooth fine lines, it minimizes pore size, and it improves skin texture and firmness.
Who can use the Overnight Resurfacing Peel?
This product is good for pretty much all skin types! You can use it if you have rosacea, acne, dry skin, oily skin, dull skin and mature skin. It really is the most versatile product that Beautycounter has to offer. It’s also pregnancy and nursing safe, and I have confidently used it during both of those phases.
How can I purchase the Overnight Resurfacing Peel and how much does it cost?
The full sized bottle of the Overnight Resurfacing Peel costs $63 and if you use one pump every other night it should last you about 9 months. You can also get it as part of the free welcome gift (includes a mini version of the Peel and a mini Charcoal Facial Mask) if you sign up for the Band of Beauty membership and spend at least $50 on products when you sign up.

And if you’d like me to delve into another Beautycounter product in this same manner please let me know the product you’d like me to discuss next. Thank you! (I’m thinking the Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm, the Facial Oils and the All Bright C Serum all deserve posts like this and I’m planning to work on them next.)
