This post is also a rave for Serious Skin Care, Aloette DHC products and 1 Murad product!!!
So it's been almost a month of me using their products. For a month is plenty of time for me to know if a product will work for my skin. It allows me to see if it will cause breakouts and what the products will do for me.
I've been using their Skin Renew Kit
I just placed a 2nd order for the kit because it's cheaper to get the products that way and it has everything I love.
The only two products I don't really use is the A-Cream SPF 30 with Peptides and the A-Force with Peptides. Still it's cheaper to get the kit and I figure this summer while by the pool I will use them more.
Anyways, you all know I don't dance around and make things seem like cotton candy and bubblegum. I tend to really hold back on face products. I like to give them enough time to work or not work. At first my face went through some purging. Nothing really bad but when is purging a beautiful thing? I stuck to the routine and now I just love how my face looks. BTW the purging was for 2 weeks.
Of course many of know that I am using cold water to wash my face which is really helping with oilies and my pores.
This skin care routine has brought back the life and glow to my face. It's not a "you've been using chemicals on your face red glow" that I usually get from products. It's a rosy cheek fresh faced glow. I finally have color back in face. When I turned 28 my face just lost all it's color. Hitting 30 made me realize I needed and wanted that glow back.
I have been testing out different products only to become very unhappy with the results.
While my skin is not in perfect condition it's not the mess it was back in Jan.
I also use 2 products from DHC which have really helped too! My face tends to hate toners. Any toner I've ever used just tears at my skin and makes the acne worse. I had switched to using the Evian water spray but it just didn't seem to do enough. I had used the DHC micro spray
once before and thought I would give it another try. The first time I had it I only got to use it about 3 times because I lost it on a trip. It's not just water. It also has green tea, thyme, and houttuynia extracts. I use it day and night after cleansing or anytime my face feels it needs a refresh.
The other product isAcerola Gel.
This baby is packed with Vitamin C and since it's a gel it doesn't make my face oily. I've been very pleased with using this as my daily moisturizer.
The products that I use by Aloette have helped ease fine lines and keep my skin balanced after using Retin A gel given to me by my derm. The aloette has NOTHING to do with the results of less acne and a brighter complexion but it has helped with moisture balance and fine lines.
- SSC A-Wash
- DHC micro spray
- Murad Lighten and Brighten Eye Treatment (this has nothing to do with the results of my face but I will say it's helped my eye area!)
- SSC Ice age applied twice around the eyes
- DHC Acerola Gel
- Once a week SSC Home Spa Facial Peel
- SSC Glycolic Cleanser
- DHC Mirco Spray
Now this where my routine changes
Everyother night I use Retin a gel given to me by my derm. When I use this I only cleanse and tone.
Any night I am not using the Retin A I switch between SSC and AloetteSSC night:
For the 7 days I do the C-Appeal System and follow with
- D-N-A Defy Normal Aging Facial Beauty Treatment
- First Pressed Olive Oil Moisture Replenishing Eye Balm
