Taking care of your skin can definitely be a process. There are so many different brands and types of products out there and it can be hard to figure out what’s best for your skin. Some products might not work well with others or they might not give the results you are looking for. That’s why I was so excited to try the Jan Marini Skin Care Management System. The system contains five products, all chosen for specific skin types and designed to work together to improve skin. Skin care can’t get much easier than that.
Does your skincare make you feel fancy?
I am definitely addicted to fancy beauty products. I like to be spoiled and pampered, especially when it comes to skincare, so if you tell me a product has a luxurious ingredient in it, I can’t wait to try it. D’OR 24K is a high-end skincare brand that uses real 24 karat gold in their products which not only makes me anxious to try them out, but it also does some really great things for your skin. Gold is an anti-inflammatory antioxidant that helps with circulation and reduces wrinkles and fine lines. When combined with other great ingredients, it makes your skin look fresher and younger. I recently got the chance to try the D’OR 24K Facial Peel and Multi-Vitamin Recovery Day Cream. Would they live up to my expectations?
I recently got the chance to try a couple of products from ARK Skincare: their Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer and their Skin Perfector Triple Action Exfoliator. ARK Skincare is a British brand that uses natural ingredients and aims to give you professional, salon-quality results at home. Their skincare “system” is pretty easy to figure out- they have different lines based on age and what your skin needs during that time period. For example, the Age Protect line for teens and people in their twenties focuses on protecting against daily pollutants while the Age Defy line for 50 and up uses collagen-boosting and skin-brightening ingredients. It seems like a pretty simple way to choose your skincare products.
It’s no secret that we love our beauty products, but Stacie and I are also super into skincare. As much fun as it is to play around with new makeup looks, it’s even more important to take good care of our skin. A couple of months ago, we were contacted by Jess, a woman from a company called Skin Actives Scientific, who asked if we would like to try some of their products. I did a little research into the company and really liked what I found out. Skin Actives is a skincare company that focuses on quality ingredients and scientific research rather than fancy packaging. Plus, it’s located right here in AZ. Their whole system is setup so you can tailor their products to your needs. In addition to ready made skincare, they also sell additives. If there is a certain ingredient you really like or want to try you can buy the additive and mix it into your favorite moisturizer or serum. Jess asked us for information about our skin type, any sensitivities we might have, and what our skincare goals are. The whole process was really easy and a few days later we each received a box full of goodies chosen specifically for our skin needs. I’ve been using the products I got for the past couple of months and here is what I think so far (Stacie received different products based on her skin type and goals).
