As most of you know, I do not use much in the way of makeup or skin creams and lotions.
My skin has been so sensitive my entire life, that using products on my face is a recipe for disaster.
What is suppossed to make it look better usually ends up making me break out and needing to pile more on to cover it up.
And ultimately looking worse because of it, not better.
Years ago I ditched all that stuff.
Keeping things as natural as possible is my philosophy - for what goes in my body and what goes on it.
It has been a much better arrangement for all of me.
And the pocketbook is better for it too - hard to believe how much money gets spent on all the stuff that goes on our faces.
So when I heard about the éclos Skin Care products, I had to take a closer look at them.
They are all natural products that use Apple Stem Cells to stimulate the skin cells and make them look younger.
Younger is good, especially when one is reaching middle age.
All natural ingredients such as, vitamins and anti-oxidants, is also a good thing.
So I thought I just might try this new line of skin care for the face.
I was excited to receive a free starter kit in the mail. It contained several different bottles and a head band to keep my hair out of it all.
First I used the Facial Scrub to get the skin deep down clean.
Next came the Skin Prep which is a cleanser also.
The Face Serum is light layer that is a cellular activator.
The Regenerative Cream added the needed moisture and the Eye Cream dabbed around the tender eye skin completed the routine.
There was also a Clay Mask included, that I used a couple of times during the trial.
And the results after two weeks of using the éclos Skin Care system: I was really impressed with how soft my skin felt.
I didn't break out - which was something new for me.
In fact, the one blemish thtat I did have went away extra quick.
I think these rejuvenation products made it heal much quicker than it would have normally.
Do I look younger than my 47 years?
Well, I didn't see a difference in any of those lines and wrinkles, but my skin did appear "fresher" as it did when I was younger.
I liked the Face Serum the best for it's light feel and application - I think sticking with that product will be the best for me.
And since the folks at Eclos sent me an extra set of these products, I will be giving it away in a contest.
The first one for this blog!
