Countertime Carry-On Set ($135)
Take your favorite age-defying routine on the go in portable, refillable, TSA-friendly minis that come inside a stylish, reusable pouch. This set includes the entire Countertime regimen — each product is formulated with Retinatural Complex for retinol-like results (without potential skin irritation or sun sensitivity). Proven to visibly firm, brighten, and plump the skin, this mini set welcomes you to the new age of aging well.
Retinatural Complex: We took two of the most powerhouse plant-derived ingredients available and created a scientific breakthrough. Bakuchiol has been shown to provide skin-care results that are comparable to retinol—without harmful side effects such as skin irritation and increased sun sensitivity—and Swiss alpine rose boosts the skin’s antioxidant defense.
After just four weeks of use*:
- 97% said skin texture felt smoother
- 88% said skin looked more youthful
- 91% of participants said skin felt renewed and looked revitalized
- 88% said Countertime reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
