Although hesitant as usual, I finally got the guts to try some new skincare products and boy did I fall head over heels. Not only is my skin thanking me for it, but my friends are too.
Obagi CLENZIderm MD Cleanser

Working so much and wearing make-up on my face all day makes my skin go haywire, so in order to control that I was looking for a new daily foaming cleanser. The search ended when I discovered Obagi CLENZIderm MD Daily Care Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser works wonderfully, removing all the dirt that our skin accumulates throughout the day, debris, make-up and excess oil. The 2% Salicylic acid helps prevent clogged pores and leaves skin refreshed and clean. It eliminates dead skin cells by washing them away which promotes new healthier skin cells to surface. The good news with this Obagi wash is that you don’t have to worry about turning into a dried up beet because the menthol ingredient will soothe the skin, preventing redness and irritation. If you do get a little dry from this product try skipping a day. There is no better feeling than being committed to a daily cleanser-- who said I was non-committal?
Let me just say, I was in the dark when it came to eye creams for a long time. But, now that there are dark circles under my eyes, I get the picture. I never understood it until the shadow spoke back to me when I looked in the mirror. I had always heard wonderful things from my co-workers about Neocutis Lumiere Bio Restorative Eye Cream. But, it wasn’t approved by me until I actually saw a huge result in my under eye area. This stuff is miraculous and I highly recommend it. The only thing is try not to forget this daily ritual and make it part of your routine. I saw results after 6 weeks of nightly application, but for maximum results apply twice a day on clean skin.
Neocutis Journee Bio Restorative Day Cream

Gearing towards another Neucutis product that has gained a lot of popularity for an obvious reason, I tried the Journee Bio Restorative Day Cream. This cream is remarkable and kills two birds with one stone. I use it as a morning moisturizer, tint and sunscreen. It’s a complete anti-aging day cream with PSP, anti oxidants, hyaluronic acid and UVA/UVB protection SPF 30+ to rejuvenate, protect and hydrate skin. This miracle potion smoothes fine lines and wrinkles by keeping skin hydrated and radiant. This cream goes a long way all you need is a pump or two and you’ve got yourself a luminous, protected face.
