One of my big goals is to find a skincare routine that works for me. I’ve never had smooth poreless skin like you see in all the skincare ads which always left me thinking that none of the products out there is made for my type of combination skin.
The amount of products needed and a day time and night time routine all had me running for the hills once again. Where will I find the time? How can I afford so many products? All these questions left me more confused but I am determined to find something that works.
Exuviance Professional sent me a few of their products to review and I figured it’s the perfect opportunity to properly get my foot in the door.
Exuviance Skin Care was founded and created by Dermatologist partners of the Neostrata Company Inc. They discovered the anti-aging benefits of Glycolic Acid and created and patented the first Glycolic peel. The range is popular world wide and has grown in popularity in South Africa over the past few years for its proven anti-aging benefits. They pride themselves for not doing any testing on Animals.
Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish
An innovative exfoliator that masters a triple action approach to skin transformation in a single yet powerful treatment. It contains a powerful blend of physical, chemical and enzyme rejuvenators. Best suited to normal or combination skins, oily, acne prone and early aging fine lines.
Key ingredients include professional grade crystals to smooth skin, a papaya enzyme and glycolic acid to dissolve impurities that congest pores, loosen dead skin cells and speed up cell renewal. Should be used twice a week. Non-comedogenic.
Ultra Restorative Creme
An anti-aging night creme formulated to provide deep hydration and help restore the moisture balance in dry, sensitive or easily irritated skin.
Key ingredients include a Poly Hydroxy Acid/ Bionic Blend together with multi-antioxidants to help revitalize the skin and improve texture and tone. The rich bionic formulation helps to give the skin a healthy glow. Non-comedogenic. Fragrance Free. PABA free.
A light weight, intensely moisturizing overnight serum with a water gel texture to fight back oxidative stress as well as dryness and dehydration.
Key ingredients include Prodew which refills deep reserves of natural skin moisture known as NMF, restoring a feeling of suppleness and comfort. PHA/bionics and Evening Primrose oil strengthens the skins barrier and neutralizes environmental damage. It is a good top up treatment when skin is feeling dry and in need of deep hydration.
After the first use of the Triple Microdermabrasion I could immediately feel my skin feeling softer and smoother. It exfoliates thoroughly without feeling harsh on your skin.
The ultra restorative creme also had an immediate reaction. After I applied it and waited a few minutes I felt as the dead skins cells dislodged and I could wipe it off my face. I did not expect that at all and after applying the deep hydration my skin felt soft and almost full.
After 3 weeks of using the Exuviance I can feel a difference in the texture, it is more smooth to the touch and I’m hoping the longer I use the product the more visibly the texture will change too. My skin looks more hydrated and less oily daily. It feels clean.
The smell of the Triple Microdermabrasion is strong if you suffer from a sensitivity to smells. I easily get a headache from potent smells and this is one of them but it is easily covered by the smell of the Ultra restorative creme which has more of a fruity smell which is interesting as no artificial fragrances are added.
These products are on the higher end in terms of price point but looking at the immediate results and how little product is needed to be used each time I would recommend the investment.
