Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -Resveratrol B E

on 6/30/2018 6:20:00 PM

I purchased the Resveratrol B E night serum to help with basic anti ageing, brightening and firming. I had read great reviews so I thought it was worth the high price. I unfortunately did not see any noticeable difference after using the entire bottle.

I will stick with my vitamin C for an antioxidant.

I'm 54 years old with sensitive skin and eyes, this is the best eye cream and doesn't irritate my eyes, wish it came in a tube.


Moisturizers -Skinceuticals -Emollience

on 6/1/2018 4:14:00 AM

As per the last review of the Skinceuticals Emollience product, I too love this product as it makes my skin feel soft, smooth, and hydrated. And compared to other creams/brands, Skinceuticals is reasonably priced + the products are packaged well.

Skinceuticals AGE Eye Complex is probably my favorites eye cream to date. It's extremely moisturizing and soothing on my under eyes. While I haven't seen any improvements in my under eye darkness, at this point I figure no eye cream is that much of a miracle worker. And though this product is somewhat pricey, it lasts for a good while.

Treatments (Eye) -Skinceuticals -aox + eye gel

on 5/20/2018 2:14:00 PM

It's hard to go awry with Skinceuticals - the brand is expensive, but the skincare works. I don't usually buy products specifically for my eyes because normally the area tolerates my normal skincare quite well, but I've started a job working nights and my eye area is particularly ornery right now. I've got circles, puffiness, and generally ugly undereyes.

I'm happy to report that it works very well. It contains antioxidants and caffeine, which serve to improve the texture of the skin and any puffiness. The antioxidants are also protective against pollution and damaging sun rays (not that I see the sun much these days). The gel texture moisturizes nicely with only a tiny, tiny amount and wears well under make up. I put it on after my toner and before my moisturizer. My one complaint is the pump - it dispenses too much product and for $93 you really don't want to waste any AOX+. That aside, I'm very happy with the purchase and expect it to last me quite a while.


Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -Discoloration Defense Multi-Phase Serum

on 5/16/2018 10:23:00 AM

The SkinCeuticals Discoloration Defense is a light serum that is supposed to lighten skin imperfections such as hyperpigmentation, melasma, and post acne scars. I went through my first bottle so fast that I didn't have time to review it before it was sadly empty but I did get a sample in one of my subscription boxes so I have a chance to review it. The texture of this is a very light serum/ oil and it absorbs pretty quickly. I recommend using this in place of your regular serum and use this immediately after toning. I used this product at night and did notice some minor skin lightening which almost completely returned once I finished the bottle. Be sure to use SPF during the day or else you probably won't notice any skin lightening at all. I do like that this is fragrance and alcohol free and is safe for those with sensitive skin. This has several proven lightening ingredients such as kojic acid, tranexamic acid, and niacinamide. Taking that into account, I'm still not sure this justifies the almost $100 price tag, but if you like the brand this is a lightener that is worth checking out. My video review can be seen here;




Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -Retinol 0.5% Refining Night Cream

I find that the Skinceuticals 0.5 Retinol is all I need and probably will not step up to the 1.0 anytime soon. I have tried other brands of retinol, but so far like this much better. I use this product only twice a week and have had some peeling, but the longer I use this product the peeling has become much less. I use the Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 gel afterwards ( I usually wait 30 minutes before I apply the serum and a moisturizer after the retinol). At 61 I do not have many lines and no wrinkles and I want to keep it that way, that is why I added this retinol to my skincare regime. I do make sure I use sunscreen during the day which I apply after the CE Ferulic serum and moisturizer.

Moisturizers -Skinceuticals -Emollience

on 5/7/2018 4:03:00 PM

Again another Skinceuticals product that I cannot live without. I discovered Emolience during a facial I received while in southern California last year. My skin was so dehydrated after 4 days in California that I decided to get a facial where the spa used primarily Skinceuticals products. This moisturizer did wonders for my skin immediately. Even after arriving back home my skin still felt soft and smooth, but after a couple of weeks I noticed how my regular moisturizer did absolutely nothing for me. I immediately ordered this moisturizer along with other Skinceuticals products that were recommended to me by the aesthetician As soon as I put on this moisturizer, my skin felt soft and renewed. It kept my face, neck, and decolletage moisturized during this past very harsh cold winter when nothing else worked. Also, a little goes a long way and one jar has lasted me almost 6 months.

Skincare - Face -Skinceuticals -SkinCeuticals Eye Balm

on 5/7/2018 3:52:00 PM

One thing that I really love about this eye cream is how little I need to use under my eyes. Goes on smoothly, absorbs well, and my concealer goes on very nicely. This jar has lasted me over 6 months and I use it twice a day - in the morning before applying my makeup and at nighttime.

Moisturizers -Skinceuticals -Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2

on 5/7/2018 3:48:00 PM

I bought this product after reading many online reviews, but after purchasing found nothing special about it except its expensive price tag. I used it primarily after using a retinol, but found that Cerave has a nightime cream which is much less expensive and a bit better than the Skinceutical triple lipid restore.

Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -C E Ferulic

I bought Skinceuticals CE Ferulic serum last year and it did absolute wonders for my face, neck, and decolletage. Since it is so pricey and I heard that Paula's Choice had a dupe, I tried that after I ran out of the Skinceuticals CE Ferulic serum. It is a good dupe, but not as good as the original. As soon as I ran out of the Paula's choice, I bought another bottle of the Skinceuticals one and am never looking back. I am amazed at all the compliments I get on my skin, having people think I am much younger than my almost 62 years.

Sunscreen -Skinceuticals -Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50

on 4/21/2018 8:35:00 AM

This is my holy grail of sunscreens. I've been using it for years and have gone through many bottles. I've tried a lot of other products but am never tempted to stray. Here is what I love about it:

It's tinted! On lazy days, applying this gives me just enough light coverage to blur imperfections and get away with no makeup.
It's thin. A very lightweight fluid that is very easy to spread around the whole face and absorbs quickly.
It's physical. No chemical blockers in here. I've noticed that chemical sunscreens tend to make my face greasy and dull.
It's SPF 50, which means great coverage and NO sunburn.
It doesn't interfere with makeup. I wait a few minutes after applying to let it set a bit and then proceed with my makeup as usual. I think this actually acts as a primer quite well.
Now, the one downside is that it's by Skinceuticals and that means it's kind of expensive. A 1.7 oz bottle costs $34, but considering that it will last a few months and will help keep wrinkles and melanoma away, I think that's well worth it.

Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -Metacell Renewal B3

on 3/30/2018 7:32:00 AM

I really enjoyed using this products. I originally purchased it to use as a serum. I was told that is was a serum by the store rep when I bought it. later on, I noticed it is more of a anti ageing moisturiser. I did like it however, and I used the entire bottle. I used it at night as a second serum under my moisturiser. It did not provide enough moisture to use alone in my opinion. While using, it seemed to help with improving my skin tone and texture. It is extremely light weight and soaks into the skin quickly. It almost has a silicone texture like a primer. I did try to use it during the day but I did not like the finish it left on my skin, it made my skin look shiny. Overall I think it is a great product but it is just not something I need in my routine.

Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -C E Ferulic

I'm on my third week with the famed serum treatment and I'm not sure what I think about it. I'd say that it requires a low ph toner before applying, otherwise you need way too many drops to spread over face, neck and chest area. I'm currently using Thayer's rose/witch hazel toner right before to help spread CE better. I don't love having a product in my fridge next to the butter, but whatever if it keeps it fresh longer. I'd say it still leaves a residue that isn't my favorite for under makeup--I feel like I have a layer of something on that is a bit tacky, but the benefits outweigh the negatives if its doing what I think its doing.
I haven't seen a reduction in fine lines (it's only been 3 weeks!) but in combination with AHA and BHA as well as moisturizers, I've certainly seen a fading of acne spots on my very white coming-out-of-winter skin. I'm not sure which product to give credit to, but I'm sure CE had something to do with the change in my skin tone, brightness and texture. I'd like to compare to other Cs, but it seems this is the gold standard, so I may just stick to this one. I have Paula's Choice listed as my next to try, since they seem to have the same magic ratio for amping up the C power. Maybe I'll compare, but for now, I'm going to use this until I run out.

Treatments (Face) -Skinceuticals -C E Ferulic

I can not rave about this product enough. I have been using it every morning for about six months. I will say I have had endlessly expensive issues with finding a foundation that works with this and my super oily skin. But. Stop. Woah. You can apply this at night time. It does not wash off and lasts for 72 hours?? OK. Game changer. I went against all of the traditional uses, I applied before bed. Chose not to use any other actives, just a quick smear of Dermalogica skin smoothing moisturiser. I woke up and actually, holy shit balls. I sat in front of the mirror, just staring. Smooth. Before I applied foundation. What? Ok, so I have tried every foundation under the sun in the last 12 months, and I do mean every. Chanel to Too Faced. I have spent Thousands. Could it possibly have been the ferulic was just making my skin too greasy????? Oh my god, putting it on the night before has just opened my options up to so many foundations that I negated before due to the grease factor this caused when applied in the morning. And on top of all that my skin looks like butter, I am 38 with hormonal flare ups and stubborn pigmentation. I swear, four drops, the night before, I wanted to kiss my reflection.
