As I approach thirty sooner rather than later, I have really tried to start a daily skin care routine. After all, I put my skin through a lot, especially this time of year. I am constantly sweating in and out of the gym. My face is typically covered in dirt and grime from the day's workout. Plus the day to day stresses of life are often seen under my eyes and on my face.
I have been in search of a good skin care solution that cleanses, moisturizes, and helps rejuvenate my face. I have tried a variety of products that typically come in my monthly Ipsy bags. While I liked some, I never would follow up and buy the product. A friend of mine passed a long some products they have been using. Anything that my friend recommends, I will follow suit. The line of products my friend passed along, South Beach Skin Lab, has been my life saver.
My South Beach Skin Lab Experience
Prior to using South Beach Skin Lab my skin was blotchy, I had horrible dark circles under my eyes from stress and lack and sleep, and just felt over all yucky. It took me a while to actually start using the product after I received it. Like I mentioned, I had a stockpile of products from Ipsy that I had been testing. The South Beach Skin Lab sat on my counter, staring at me. Enticing me to use it, but I wasn't ready yet to break the seal on the products. (I hate taking products out of the original packaging and actually opening them...it's a slight hoarding instinct...haha).
I opted to first use the Olive Oil Cleanser when I was in a pinch. I was in a HUGE hurry to make a dinner reservation and was throwing on make up. My eye liner pencil broke on eye lid, leaving me with a giant, black mess around my eyes. I didn't have any make up remover at the time. I glanced over and noticed the word "cleanser" and immediately dabbed it on a rag. What I ended up grabbing was South Beach Skin Lab's Olive Oil Cleanser. The cleanser quickly wiped away all the black eye liner smeared on my eye.
After literally "breaking the seal" on the products, I decided to finally put them all to the test. I applied the Repair and Release Cream to my entire face. After the Repair and Release Cream absorbed I added the Eye Lift Serum under my eyes. I could feel the serum working pretty instantly. You can feel a slight sensation as it absorbs under your eyes.
Within a few days of using the product I noticed a pretty big difference in my skin. My skin tone was more even and soft. The dry aggravated skin that I had been dealing with was a thing of the past. I actually haven't had a breakout (knock on wood) since I started using the product. I think this is partially due to the fact my skin is less irritated daily.
The Eye Lift Serum has worked wonders. Thanks to Somnapure PM (the nightly melatonin supplement I began taking) and the Eye Lift Serum, the dark circles under my eyes are gone. I always say you can tell how a person is doing by the look in the eyes. My eyes are literally a lot more vibrant. It's hard to actually find the word to describe how my eyes look now. I guess the best way to say it is that they look "well rested", even on days when I'm not so "well rested".
My Lasting Thoughts on South Beach Skin Lab
I am usually not one to speak up and say much about skin care products, after all I hardly wear make up since I work from home. I am very much a tomboy who doesn't believe in a good skin care routine, which is why I typically only spend $10 a month on an Ipsy subscription. I can definitely say that South Beach Skin Lab has changed this attitude. I didn't realize how vibrant my skin could look and feel until it looked that way. I am hooked on South Beach Skin Lab!
The good news is right now South Beach Skin Lab is running 15% off and free shipping. If you are an Amazon fan, like myself, you can find the products there; however, with the 15% currently offered on the website, it is a better deal right now to buy it straight from the manufacturer.
