Hello my beauties!
Today i will be talking about one of my favorite subjects...skin care! If I can be completely transparent with you all for a minutes, my skin has always been a major area of insecurity for me. I spent most of my teen years struggling with severe acne. I battled this issue well into my early twenties, and still have the occasional flair ups today. When I am not dealing with an acne flare up I’m battling the hyperpigmentation scarring it left behind. I also have issues with the overall texture of my skin, it’s just not smooth as I would like it to be.
Needless to say that as an adult when people tell me that I have nice skin it’s always a hard compliment for me to accept. In my mind I still see so many of my skin's imperfections. When I was given the opportunity to work with RegenFX to do a review I jumped at it.
Now before I get into the review I would like to just give a few tips that I have learned over the years to those of you know are new to skincare on the basics when looking for and trying new products.
Identify what you want in a product and choose a product that targets your skin type or problem. Got dry skin? Go for a rich moisturizer. Acne prone? A skin clearing cleanser. Fine lines? An anti-aging line. Uneven skin tone? Make sure the products you're using will address those concerns.
Read the instructions and stick to a routine. All products should either come with an informative leaflet or have directions on the back to maximize the results of the product. It is important to use these products in the right order (ie, clean your skin, then restore any moisture that was lost, not the other way round) and consistently to see results. Also, you should not expect results on problem areas overnight. Your skin usually takes about a month to regenerate itself so it is usually after this time frame you will start to notice a difference in your skin. As your skin is constantly changing you need to stick to this routine in order to maximize the effectiveness of any active ingredients.
Don't be afraid to ask for advice. Usually at skincare/makeup counters there will be someone trained especially in figuring out your skin type and what products would work best with your skin. Another way to picking a product is reading reviews on blogs or websites http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautypedia is an excellent resource.
Now on to the review!
The skin around your eyes is very thin and it’s the first area of our face that starts to show signs of aging. I turned 30 last year and have since become obsessed with finding a good eye cream. This is a fantastic eye gel! My dark circles are what have improved the most and I am wearing less concealer.
Really like this product. Works great on my sensitive skin and helped make my skin look healthy and gives a glow. My skin is super oily so I was a little concerned about using this product but I didn’t experience any excessive oiliness from it. Overall it’s a great product!
The moisturizer was a perfect consistency, it was light enough that it didn't feel heavy on my skin, and I could wear it under my makeup with no problem! I'm completely satisfied. I’m so picky when it comes to moisturizers because I have oily skin, this did not leave a greasy residue on my skin and it hasn't caused any breakouts. As far as reducing fine lines and wrinkles, I haven't noticed that, but I really don't have any noticeable ones prior to using the product.
Overall, I have been using this line for around 2 weeks now and feel like my skin is more hydrated and looking healthier. The biggest difference I can see is in the dark circles around my eyes. I think this range would benefit anyone looking for a new skincare routine to brighten their complexion with normal to dry skin.
