TWO WEEK and TWO MONTH RESULTS -- and my full routine
on October 18, 2017
Hello my fellow amazon-lovers. First I want to say that I never write reviews... but I am just TOO excited to not share my results with you. A little bit of a background first- I am 23 years old, a medical student, with very TIRED, acne-prone, and dull skin. I have struggled with acne throughout my entire adolescent and adult life. I have used many products all over the market--including Proactiv, Proactiv+, birth control, and nearly every drug store product you can think of. Some things will keep my acne at bay, but....the years of heavy chemicals trying to treat my acne has definitely hurt the integrity of my skin. I have had new fine lines, wrinkles, HEAVY bags, and dark circles. I started doing research on skin care and decided to completely re-vamp my beauty routine. If you care about your skin, you should not hesitate in purchasing this serum. To be very fair with you, I need to explain my daily routine--and ALL the products I use (some from amazon, some from the drugstore. but all reasonably affordable). My skin is still not perfect. I do have a few blemishes that will pop up, but as for my skin overall... it has helped tremendously. These are my TWO WEEK results using this serum. Yes. I said it... TWO WEEKS. I do plan on updating this in a few months. Now, I will list below my entire CURRENT routine. Once again, DON'T HESITATE.
1.) Cleanse with Burt's Bees gel acne cleanser - Drugstore
***Not my favorite, but it is gentle and it's not causing more breakouts. I will likely be switching this soon.
2.) Tone with Simple Soothing toner - Drugstore
***Nice, not irritating, I would recommend for those battling redness. I am thinking about trying new toners as well.
3.) TruSkin Vitamin C Serum!!!! - Amazon
**** HOLY GRAIL. I use approximately the size of a dime in my hand. Allow to fully dry/absorb.
4.) Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream with SPF 30 -Drugstore
**** I adore the texture of this. It's a perfect moisturizer and make-up primer. I would suggest it for all skin types.
5.) Bae Body Eye Gel (Amazon)
I do not wear makeup every day. However, I have permanently switched to Neutrogena skin clearing foundation (drugstore). I apply with a new disposable makeup wedge each time. It is a medium coverage foundation, and it DOES NOT cause breakouts (at least for me).
1.) Cleanse with Burts Bees.
2.) Tone with Simple.
3.) First layer of TruSkin Vitamin C Serum.
****Ever heard of this? I was skeptical too. A dermaroller is a small roller that is covered with microneedles. You roll it on your skin to increase
collagen production and increase absorption of skincare products. The one I purchased was a 0.25 mm roller from the brand Sdara
(Amazon). There are many to buy and many to choose from. I would recommend reading reviews first before your purchase! I roll for 3-5
minutes all over my face. It does not cause any bleeding, however there will be some slight redness and it might burn. No worries, it should
be gone by morning.
5.) Second layer of TruSkin Vitamin C Serum. Wait for it to be fully dry and absorbed. Your face will be tight, with slight tingling or burning.
6.) TruSkin Retinol Moisturizer. (Amazon)
7.) Bae Body Eye Gel
I do not promise that this will work for anyone, but it has helped me tremendously and in a very short time. I do believe though that consistency is KEY.
I have not been in contact with ANY of the companies who's products I have reviewed. TruSkin has not given me a discount or anything for this review. I am just an honest girl hoping to spread the word on what has brightened me up. If you have any hesitation, Don't. Give it a try. I hope this helps someone.
EDIT: The second photo is my 2 month results!!! My skin is more even, brighter, and I’m still seeing improvements. Thank you TruSkin!
