How to Transition Your Skin Care from Winter to Spring
With spring just around the corner, we can finally say goodbye to the chilly winter months and prepare for sunnier days ahead. It’s the time when we’re officially in spring cleaning mode, thinking of travel plans and checking in on those resolutions…it’s also one of the times we should check in and reassess our skincare routine. While we may have needed to heavily moisturize and exfoliate through the dryer months, now we can look ahead to dewy, glowing skin – but we do need to do some prep work!
It also happens to be the perfect time to spring clean your skin-care routine. We’re shelving our heavy serums and creams and coats, and bringing out the lightweight, warm-weather favorites. (Tinted moisturizer, welcome back.)

Ready to let your skin breathe? Spring starts here…
The Go-To Cleanser
Counterstart Cococream Cleanser
Spring into your fresh-faced new routine with Counterstart Cococream Cleanser. The ultra-nourishing formula is infused with coconut oil and aloe vera, and never strips or dries out skin. It’s strong enough to cleanse away dirt, oil, and impurities, but gentle enough to use every day.
The Must-Have Moisturizer
Counterstart Cocoboost Moisturizer
You’ve ditched the heavy hydrators…now what? Locking in lightweight moisture is a breeze with Counterstart Cocoboost Moisturizer. This non-greasy blend of coconut oil and aloe vera soothes skin and absorbs quickly.
The Better Brightener
A new season calls for radiant skin—and our powerhouse vitamin C serum will be your new glow-to. Its supercharged formula instantly brightens skin and reduces the appearance of dark spots (while turmeric and camu camu help prevent new ones).
The SPF Essential
Countersun Daily Sheer Defense for Face – SPF 25
Warmer weather = more sun exposure, which makes clean SPF (already a year-round essential) non-negotiable. This daily facial sunscreen’s lightweight formula protects skin from UVA, UVB, and HEV blue light rays without leaving a chalky cast. And it’s reef-safe, so as the weather heats up, you can keep your skin and our oceans safe.
The Sheer Glow
We’re guessing your skin could use a breather. Ditch the heavy foundation and embrace a radiant, dewy glow. Dew Skin’s sheer, luminous formula features a blend of black currant seed oil, peony root extract, and vitamin C—so you get skin care plus makeup all in a flawless flash. Bonus—it even fights sun damage with SPF 20 mineral sunscreen.
The Glow Up
Reflect Effect Overnight Resurfacing Peel
Goodnight, dullness. Good morning, glow. 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.
The Sweep & Shimmer Eye
Light lids up in a blink with this cream shadow that effortlessly delivers glowy, buildable color. The instantly illuminating shades are made to glow how you want to—easily going from a sheer wash of color to a seriously smokey look—in hues that complement a variety of skin tones. Bonus: The weightless, crease-free formula is infused with safer, soothing ingredients designed to care for eyelids.
Add a Gloss for Shine & Moisture
This gloss delivers high-impact shine and conditioning lip benefits, while taking transparency to the next level with ingredients that care for your lips—and the greater good. Formulated with a blend of waxes to lock in moisture (with no stickiness), this gloss delivers cushiony color and a sophisticated scent thanks to responsibly sourced vanilla. This is shine, redefined.
