    A RADIANT GLOW WITHOUT LASERS!

     SOCIAL MEDIA: “Who wants a blushing glow from within ?”

    THE ENTIRE WORLD: ” Us”

    Is anyone surprised by this?

    It seems as if our society has gone absolutely bonkers when it comes to achieving a healthy, natural glow and to be fair, why the heck not? No one wants dull, flakey, dried up skin, right?

    Now,  the question that we need to ask ourselves is how do you achieve the “touched by the light of an Angle” type glow without lasers , surgeries and a hefty price tag?

    Would you believe me if I said you can achieve a beautiful GLOW with quality skincare and a consistent routine in your own home?

    SkinChemists Advanced Brightening Collection lasers

    Here’s the deal, my good friends at Skin Chemists intuitively knew that my skin was in dire need of a pick me up, so they did what all good friends would do. They sent help. Help came in the form of their new and  innovative Advanced Brightening Collection.

    The Collection consists of:

    Advanced Brightening Micellar Water

    This cleanser gently removes make up, oil and dirt from the skin. It contains Vitamin B3 and Vitamin C which are potent ingredients used to brighten the skin. There are other potent ingredients present in the cleanser but the one that stands out the most for me is the Summer Damask Rose Water.

    Rose water is made by steeping rose petals in water. After the petals are steeped, the water is filled with the roses’ natural oils. In ancient Egypt, rose water was used only by wealthy and influential woman, like Ms. Cleopatra, to achieve gorgeous glowing skin. Rose water maintains the skins natural moisture, regulates pH balance, tones and softens the epidermis.

    Rose water can now be found as an active ingredient in loads of skin care products and is still used ALL over the Middle East and Egypt to hydrate the skin and maintain a youthful glow.

    Advanced Brightening Toner

    The Advanced Brightening Toner balances, hydrates and minimizes redness.

    The active ingredients are Vitamin B5 to hydrate the skin; Niacinamide to maintain skin elasticity; and Vitamin C to help increase the skin’s suppleness and protect from free radicals.

    Advanced Brightening Lotion

    The Brightening Lotion contains Vitamin C to help increase the skin’s suppleness and Niacinamide. According to Skin Chemists, another active ingredient is Poreaway. “Poreaway is a new innovative active ingrdient, which visibly reduces the appearance of pores, fights shininess, blemishes and clogged pores, creates a smooth, matte finish, manages imperfections effectively for purified skin all day long and keeps skin clear and refined”.

    So now we know that these products are formulated with potent , effective ingredients. Now what? Well, now you have to put the work in if you truly crave a healthy glow.

     I’m going to tell you exactly how to use these products.

    SkinChemists Advanced Brightening Collection lasersStep 1:

    Soak a cotton pad with the Advanced Brightening Micellar Water and remove all makeup and dirt.

    Step 2:

    Drop 1-2 dollops of the Advanced Brightening Toner onto a clean cotton pad. Gently smooth all over face. Let the product sink into your skin. 

    Step 3:

    Pump 1-2 pea sized amount of Advanced Brightening Lotion onto your fingers or cotton pad and smooth it all over your face.

    Step 4: 

    In the morning, use a serum that contains a mix of anti-aging ingredients and a moisturizer with SPF. At night, use products that contain a blend of AHA/BHA to lift away dead skin cells and a thick moisturizer to lock in the moisture.

    Step 5:

    Repeat Steps 1-4 every morning and night.

    I know at times we all get lazy and unfortunately it’s our skincare regime that suffers ,however, I strongly encourage you to stick to this routine if you want radiant skin. When the photos above were taken, I had already been using the full collection for 3 weeks. I definitely was feeling myself  and I felt confident in my skin 🙂 Clearly I’m wearing makeup but only a very little wash of tinted moisturizer and blush. Oh yeah, mascara…but that doesn’t count ! 

    I am always 100% transparent with you all so I won’t tell you that these specific products will remove your wrinkles or fix any deep acne scars. The Advanced Brightening Collection was created to help you achieve radiant, hydrated, clear, subtle, glowing skin. It really is that simple!

    I’m really happy with the Advanced Brightening Collection. With consistent use my skin feels hydrated, radiant and most of all I feel confident in my own skin.

    Introducing Skin Chemists London – Caviar For The Skin!

    Skin Chemists is a new brand to the blog and I ‘m pretty excited to be collaborating with them. Their main headquarters is in London, UK with satellite presence in the United States. I was gifted with the following  products to test out for blog: Anti-Aging Day Moisturizer and Caviar Facial Serum.

    The Anti-Aging Moisturizer ($69) was created to hydrate, smooth and  brighten the skin. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t pill if worn under makeup. What I really enjoyed about this moisturizer is that it has anti-oxidant benefits and can be massaged and absorbed easily on the skin. 1.5-2 pumps was all I needed to cover my whole face.  This formula does not have SPF so that’s a drawback for me but I can easily add SPF on it’s own and we’re good to go.

    Skin Chemists Anti-aging Caviar Facial Serum ($88) was created to hydrate, plump and improve overall skin complexion.

    The serum contains ingredients such as Caviar extract which aids in improving skins elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines.  Aloe Vera works wonders at soothing and moisturizing the skin instantly and seaweed extract deeply hydrates the skin and contains ant-oxidizing properties.

    My thoughts on this product are a bit mixed. I loved how the moisturizer and serum felt on my skin. It felt as if I was rubbing silk into my skin, no joke! It’s a great formula and my skin really did look brighter, more radiant and hydrated. The mix of the potent ingredients definitely benefits your skin and the overall look and feel is amazing. What I didn’t’ like about the products is that I used them up quicker than expected. I don’t know if I pumped too much product or if the bottle dispensed too much product. I’m leaning towards me dispensing too much product.

    Overall, I’m super excited to see the long-term effects of the moisturizer + serum as I’m hoping to grab another supply of these products to fully ascertain their true benefits.
