Hands down, one of my favorite Beautycounter products is the Overnight Resurfacing Peel!
For months, I heard nothing but great things about this product. When I finally snagged one for myself a few months ago, I couldn’t believe I waited so long to try it out.
I’m obsessed with this stuff! If you struggle with uneven skin tone, acne marks/pigmentation, fine lines, or dullness, then read on my friend!
This article will review the Overnight Resurfacing Peel from Beautycounter.

I’ve struggled with acne, uneven skin tone, and post-acne marks for years (like 13 years but who’s counting ?).
Fortunately, I’m finally at a point where my acne only flares up a bit during my period or if I veer off my eating pattern and meditation routine.
But before this year, I spent thousands of dollars on professional skin care, creams, and cleansers. At one point, I was having a professional chemical peel about every other month to try and control my skin issues. Professional chemical peels are very strong and caused my skin to peel (no surprise there) pretty badly for 5-7 days.
A health scare caused me to stop using harsh chemicals on my skin (read about my story here) and switch to safer skin care products.
While my acne has improved quite a bit, I still struggle with hyperpigmentation and red marks from past breakouts and occasional period zits.
The first week of using the peel, my face felt so soft that I almost thought I was pregnant because my skin had never felt that way before – LOL. (Not preggo – at least not at the time of writing this ?)
I now use this salicylic acid peel about 3 to 4 nights per week.
Ta-Da! All done. Then I head to sleep and wake up the next morning to glowing, smooth skin.
This peel works in two main ways. First of all, it contains 9 resurfacing acids that work together to remove dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.
Some of the key resurfacing acids include salicylic acid, glycolic acid, citric acid, and ascorbic acid. The salicylic acid peel is plant-derived and works to reduce blemishes by unclogging the pores from the debris that usually lead to breakouts. The citric acid and ascorbic acid (commonly known as vitamin c ?) work to even your skin tone, reduce dark spots, and brighten your skin.
Then, the resurfacing peel combines 6 soothing acids to rehydrate and replenish your skin in order to prevent that nasty over-drying and peeling effect seen with most chemical peels. The most important ingredient in this regard is hyaluronic acid which hydrates the skin, helps it retain moisture, and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
This peel is for women and men concerned with dullness, uneven skin texture and tone, dark spots, and lines and wrinkles.
This product is a leave-on, nighttime treatment.
Apply 1-2 pumps to a clean face 3-4 times per week. Allow the product to absorb (I brush my teeth while it sits for about 3 minutes) and then follow with your moisturizer. Follow your usual skin care routine in the morning!
Because of the soothing and hydrating acids in the resurfacing peel, it also works for people with dry skin as long as you follow usage with a moisturizer! Start by using the product once a week and increase slowly to what works best for you.
Make sure to wear sunscreen, though, as your skin may be more sensitive to sunrays the next day. I like our Dew Skin Moisturizer with 20 SPF for this.
I noticed a change in my skin’s texture after just two uses of the peel! But some people report that it takes a few weeks before seeing obvious, maximum results.
The Overnight Resurfacing Peel is $63. I’ve had my bottle for over a month now, and haven’t even made a dent into it! Most people say it lasts them about 6 months, depending on how often you use it.
That is a STEAL compared to the $150-200 I would spend on my bimonthly chemical peels.
