I’ve only recently come to realize that I was blessed with great skin when I was younger – I never really had to worry about acne or other skin issues in my teens, twenties and thirties. Once I hit 40 though things seem to have started changing in a hurry!
The texture of my skin has really changed as I’ve gotten older, I get occasional bumps on my cheeks and chin and I’m starting to see the beginnings of wrinkles around my eyes and “laugh lines” around my mouth. So, better late than never, I’ve really started paying attention to my skin and my skincare routine.
Over the past few years I’ve bought any number of moisturizers, masks and cleansers with widely varying results. Because my skin is sensitive I have to be careful about product ingredients and since I have combination T-zone oily/dry skin it has been difficult to find products that work for all of my issues.
Earlier this month I received an éclos Anti-Aging Skin Care Starter Kit to try out and I was eager to give it a whirl! The kit included:
- Facial Cleanser Skin Prep
- Cellular Activator Face Serum
- Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream
- Restorative Eye Cream
- Instant Radiance Facial Scrub
- Skin Renewal Clay Mask
- éclos Terry Cloth Head Band
The éclos Skin Care products contain high potency plant stem cells that come from a rare Swiss apple that help to stimulate your own skin stem cells and encourage aging skin to behave like younger skin.
I have to admit that with five young kids I often find it difficult to stick to a skincare routine so I never did use these products twice a day as recommended, however I still saw an improvement in my skin texture with just a couple days. To combat my skin texture issues I typically use a facial scrub or power exfoliator two to three times a month but I haven’t had to do that at all during the three weeks that I’ve used éclos.
The éclos products all have a very nice light, clean fragrance that I’ve enjoyed. The mask is wonderful and I really like how clean it makes my face feel. My favorite products in the line are the Facial Cleanser Skin Prep and the Cellular Activator Face Serum. Serums are usually too heavy for my mostly oily skin so I’m actually amazed that I like this one as much as I do but I think its fabulous.
