Some of you know that I participated in a Meaningful Beauty campaign earlier this month called #YouthHasNoAge, a moment to talk about how taking care of yourself at every age can help you feel as young and beautiful as you’d like. Well, I had a blast playing with all the products, and this is my review of all the products, in order of how I loved using them:
Skin Softening Cleanser – I am a sweaty beast during my workouts, so I find that it’s great to wash my face after a good sweat session. I took this with me to exhale and SoulCycle earlier in the month and it’s a great, light cleanser that removes surface dirt and oils really well. I think it’s a great option for summer. It even got rid of some makeup I forgot to remove before rolling into class.
Crème de Serum – A skin care regimen without a good serum is devoid of a very vital step. You’ve just cleansed your face, your pores are open, so apply something that’s going to do something under your moisturizer. This formula is light (so it’s perfect for summer) and it sinks in well.
Glowing Serum – Again, a serum is an essential part of your skin care regimen. If you’re experiencing dullness (skin that just doesn’t glow like it should at optimal health,) try this serum. It helps your face look alive and, well, glowing. Which is always a good thing.
Advanced Formula Lifting Eye Crème – This is a great brightening eye cream that helps reduce the appearance of undereye baggage while diffusing light from dark circles. It’s a great secret weapon for those of us who rarely get enough sleep.
Wrinkle Smoothing Capsules – I honestly try not to give any major freak-out time to fine lines and wrinkles, but I do have a consistent regimen of products to try and slow their arrival. I like the brand’s Micro-encapsulated Melon Complex with dual-action Vitamin C. As with any regimen, you need to be diligent about use to see long-term results, but in the weeks I’ve been using them, I like the firming results I’ve seen.
Antioxidant Day Crème SPF 20 UVA/UVB – This is crucial, people. A good lightweight day cream with SPF is essential for summer, and this one more than protected me for a walk in the park. I think it’s a great option for a lightweight summer/warm weather moisturizer and it’s a good barrier under makeup.
Skin Brightening Décolleté and Neck Treatment SPF 15 – The area under your chin can always stand a good strengthening cream that helps brighten and lift. I like this one: it’s not too heavy and it really gives the area a pretty, healthy glow.
I really enjoyed my time playing with the products, and it’s really true: taking care of yourself doesn’t have a minimum or maximum age. Youth, it seems, is in that dauntless, effortless belief that you’re completely worthy of your own love and attention. Taking care of your skin is part of that effort. Loving yourself truly has no age.
