With Fall in full swing, and especially since we’ve had our first snow of the season, I have been changing up my skin care regimen. Many of the products I’ve been using are new on the market or old favorites, but they’ve ALL been working towards keeping my skin acne free, keeping me looking glowy, and repairing my skin from the summer sun (I’m still waiting for my freckles to fade). Did I list your favorite? If not, please tell me about it in the comments section…I’m always looking for new miracle products to try! In the meanwhile, take a looksie at some of my favorites- there are many higher end and lower end on here sure to satisfy your need for luxurious or simple products.
This product is supposed to be a major exfoliator without the harsh abrasion, getting rid of dead skin skills to show a more youthful skin tone. It’s to be used 1-2 times a week. I’ve been using this once a week, pumping the liquid onto a cotton ball and applying it to my face and neck. I’m not wild about the pump top, which is hard to use and squirts the (expensive) liquid halfway across my bathroom. I have noticed a major difference in the glow factor of my skin though, more so than with other products I’ve used for removing dead skin from my complexion. The first time I used this, I got a skin compliment from someone, so I’ll call that a win! For $90 I will be sad when I’m out of this.
Once upon a time, I bought a large size of Advanced Night Repair. I couldn’t buy groceries that week because it was so expensive, but my skin’s never been better. There was a mini sample of this in my gift with purchase recently, so I get to give it another go. I apply this serum at night and put some moisturizer over top to seal it. I swear my skin glows when I wake up in the morning after using this. It is THAT good. Is it $55 for a tiny bottle good? Let’s put it this way, one of these days when I am feeling rich I will happily go and buy a big bottle of it but until then I will be stingy with it and use just an itty bitty bit of it to stretch it out as long as possible. In my rich future fantasy life, I apply it to my whole body every night.
This is a light oil-free serum that helps soothe and calm irritated skin. There are botanical extracts and lots of things involved that will take down inflammation and redness. It is a bright green liquid that reminds me of algae when I put it on my face! It’s really fun to use actually. It’s kind of a watery formulation and hard to tell if it’s really helping my skin because I am not normally super red, but I plan to start using it after I use my PMD system which I’ll be talking about shortly….
I’ve been using two beauty tools lately, the Light Stim and the PMD (personal microdermabrasion). I will tell ya’ll what I really think in a different post so you can determine if it’s something you might want/need for your own skin. They are both expensive as eff but the problems they treat are more expensive to fix in other ways. More on that later.
This is a facial cream that promises to show you advanced anti aging- lines and wrinkles will lift away, cells will repair themselves, and the skin’s texture will be improved. Did it live up to its claims? I don’t have a ton of wrinkles but I do have pesky little fine lines in some places on my face. I did feel that my skin plumped out and I could no longer visibly see my fine lines. My skin was incredibly soft and moisturized, and perhaps the most exciting change I noticed was my skin seemed to be brighter after use of this product. It is very creamy and the application is great- you push on a pump and it lets out just enough product for one use. I was lucky enough to have a PR sample, but if I were to buy it at retail it would cost me $150. I don’t think I’d shell out that kind of money for the results I saw, but if my fine lines were deeper and more of a concern for me (basically- if I was about 10-15 years older) I would consider it. Many people on review websites are claiming this is a miracle product so perhaps if your skin is in desperate need of a cream for deep wrinkles, this could be for you.
