As much as I hate taking selfies, but have to take one for a before picture..so here it is.
I find it funny they sent a card along suggesting HOW to take the picture, however I took mine before even reading the card…
First off I don’t normally wear make-up in the first place (have to be in the mood) , It’s the summer so even if I did wear make-up I never did in the summer other than some gloss. Hopefully I can get that same lighting which I took in the bathroom as it seemed to have the brightest natural light all I had to do was face the window.
They also tell you on the other side of the card or a separate one… That you should stop using other skin care products, not be testing another as well as not to go out and tan for the 2 weeks (14 days) you’ll be testing and reviewing the product. Well I have already been tanning and sadly not naturally but with that Jergen’s stuff but that’s only my body, NOT my face. So you can take that as my signature that I agree I will and have not done anything it asked not to while testing the product. I will try to remember to post an image of the card as well.
Now that is all cleared up… I know what you may be thinking…She doesn’t have wrinkles or she looks too young to have wrinkles,…right? First off keep in mind… I used to use only Hawaiian Tropic tanning oil (which I think has only a 4 SPF if even that) or I just used baby oil. This is back before we all knew better, so I know I have damage. The one thing I can see (or maybe it’s just me is) you see how below my eyes are…I’m hoping the moisturizer will help fix that a bit… plus maybe tone up my skin a bit. Also I hope where any wrinkles may be that I haven’t really noticed (like possible crows feet near my eyes) will hopefully go away or just never show up!
(wed June 14)
So here’s a picture of the box and the 1 oz tub I got to test to review. I have yet to see what it’s worth in the store but I’ll wait til the challenge is done.
I washed my face with my facial loofa and I wash depending on in shower or at sink with either Clean & Clear or what I have left of my Garnier Nutri-pure cleanser. Now I don’t know if it was using the loofa or the cleanser or the 2 together but my face felt tingly (a good tingly) when I put the moisturizer on. I’m going to take it as that meant it was working.
Day 1/ night 2
I think I may see a little bit if a difference but not quite sure with what.
Definitely see a difference. Even went to ask mom if she saw any difference and said yes.
My skin I think you can say looks brighter, smoother, healthier even.
So I dozed off before getting to put the moisturizer on, so I applied it an extra time today to make up for it.
so I was trying to get an update photo, but I wasn’t able to mimic the previous photo. Though maybe this other one is closer. (I even threw on the same shirt)
Its been humid and muggy here so I’m not sure if that would have anything to do with how I would look in the Images. I can tell you during the summer my cheeks and especially my chin are usually oily. My forehead is usually the only thing normal to dry about my skin. So I’ve been putting a bit more of the cream there than the rest of my face. I wash my face, dab it dry then let it air dry and then put the cream on.
Now I’ve lost track of what day this is, and checking email today is the last day!!
I don’t know if there’s any difference, mom said it looked smoother. Also while using it (as they said we couldn’t use any other face products I didn’t use my spot treatment so I got a zit. Not sure but I think it clogs pores a bit.
improvements I think should be
-make the product depending on skin tone/problems.
Mine is normal to oily (especially during the summer) the only spot that would really need moisturizer everyday year round is my forehead.
-Also while I don’t break out often I do have certain times that I do, so if there’s a way add an acne medication to it
-as I said I think it stopped up my pores (tho I could be wrong) even if not
MAKE IT non·com·e·do·gen·ic
denoting a skin-care product or cosmetic that is specially formulated so as not to cause blocked pores.
I don’t know….does it look like there’s any difference? I guess between the first 2 you can say my skin does look smoother but sadly that last one it looks like I still have the dark baggage under my eyes.
I’m mixed as I’m not sure if I see a change but mom said my face looks smoother. Its a fairly thick but very creamy moisturizer/anti-wrinkle if you have oily skin.. wait til the fall and winter months to use it.
So as I said I’d wait til today to see if I can find a price, haven’t had the chance to find it in a store nearby but then I hate going to the store! So I figured it was over $10 thinking maybe between $15 and $20 so I looked it up on Walmart.com see the prices for yourself
Before, Day 4, last day
Gee I got that blank stare down don’t ‘eye!
I have received the product complimentary to test and review
