Happy Holidays! I hope you all had wonderful, safe, joy filled holidays. My family celebrates Christmas and my mom did not disappoint with her choice of Christmas PJs for the whole family. Check out my IG page for pics. Shame on me for my lack of posts. With moving, eczema breakouts, and crazy holiday season I had been pretty busy.
As promised on my IG page, I wanted to give a full review of @EltaMD skincare products. While using these products, I also used a serum made by my dermatologist to try to even out my skin.
1. Be prepared to spend money.
Now these products are not cheap, however, I did get good results. For the Barrier Renewal Complex, Foaming Face Wash, & Broad Spectrum UV cream, and my doctors serum I spent $230. Now, at first this may seem like a lot, but it’s actually pretty average and some of the bottles can be at least $100 each but in this case it was not.
2. Use the Barrier Renewal Complex before Serum.
Now this may seem obvious, but serums are very concentrated and if you have sensitive skin like me, it can be shocking to the skin. Now, this doesn’t mean that it’s bad for the skin but you should use a base before applying the serum just after washing your face. I noticed a huge difference when I applied the Barrier before the serum. It smoothed out my skins’ appearance which was my goal.
3. Be patient, and use as directed!
Sometimes I get lazy and only would use all 4 products at night or I would just apply in the morning. I noticed a huge difference when I started applying all 4 products both morning and night. To be clear, I only used the foaming cleanser at night. I just rinse my face with water in the mornings. Also, when I would apply all 3 products AM and PM in the mornings I found my skin’s tone starting to even out faster. That was my main concern as to why I was using the products because my skin was two different tones. Below are my before and after pics:My after pic 👇🏾👇🏾👇🏾
