Shine Control: NeoStrata Pore Minimizing Anti-Shine Hydrating Gel

9 Aug

Hi beauties!

It’s been extremely hot and humid in Vancouver, and that means shiny skin.

I don’t like to overdo it with powder, so I’ve been using an anti-shine gel to control oily areas like the T-zone.

NeoStrata Pore Minimizing Anti-Shine Hydrating Gel is an oil-free gel that reduces shine and mattifies for up to 8 hours.

In addition to instant shine control, this gel visibly reduces pore size and refines skin texture over time. The formula is designed for combination and oily skin, but is also suitable for sensitive skin.

To get the best results, you can apply the gel after cleansing once or twice a day:

  • If your skin is oily, apply the gel all over your face.
  • If you have combination skin, apply the gel on the T-zone.

Even though we’re into the dog days of summer, I know this anti‑shine gel will be part of my daily skincare routine well into the fall. 💕

Pure Retinol: NeoStrata All‑in-One Night Serum

11 Jan

NeoStrata All-in-One Night Serum

According to many skincare studies, Retinol is one of the most effective anti-wrinkle ingredients.

After reading up on Retinol a few years ago, I tried a prescription form which was a bit harsh on my sensitive skin. So, I gave up on it but kept on hearing how well it works.

NeoStrata®, an innovative cosmeceutical brand, has an anti-wrinkle serum called All-in-One Night Serum that I’ve just starting using. So far, what I like about this serum with Retinol is that the formula does all of its work while minimizing irritation.

Key Ingredients

The main ingredients in this nightly serum are:

  • .3% Pure Retinol–This form of vitamin A is encapsulated (releases slowly) to optimize its potency and deliver a high concentration to skin while minimizing irritation.
  • 5% new Matrixyl®–This peptide helps to reverse the visible signs of aging.
  • 0.05% Hyaluronic Acid–This anti-aging ingredient provides moisturizing and plumping action.

New Lineup of Cleansers from NeoStrata

28 Jul

NeoStrata Cleansers

If you’re like me, you probably spend more time picking out a lip gloss than deciding what to use to clean your face.

With their new lineup of cleansers, the skin gurus at NeoStrata have made it easier to find the best way to remove everyday impurities and makeup (the most important step for healthy skin!).

I had a chance to take a look at NeoStrata’s new collection of cleansers, which you can easily incorporate into any skincare routine (even one for sensitive skin).

All-in-One Cleansing Milk

I’m a fan of cleansing milk because it’s an extra gentle cleansing option that doesn’t strip the skin of moisture.

NeoStrata’s non-rinse cleansing milk contains a plant extract called Celldetox™ to detoxify and prepare your skin to receive skincare ingredients in the other skincare products in your routine.

To remove makeup from your face, eyes, and lips, just apply the non-rinse cleanser with a cotton pad and delicately wipe off.

Who this cleanser is for: If your skin tends to be dry or irritated, use this non-rinse cleansing milk to wipe away dirt and makeup but still leave skin hydrated.

Detoxifying Micellar Gel

Non-rinse micellar cleansers got their start in the fashion world in France. Models and makeup artists rave about micellar cleansers because they’re quick and easy-to-use, and avoid the harsh effects of water.

NeoStrata has reinvented the micellar cleanser by adding their detoxifying ingredient, Celldetox, and soothing Vitamin E to the cleansing process.

Just swipe a cotton pad with this gel cleanser to remove stubborn makeup and the tiny micelles dissolve impurities and leave your complexion feeling soft without stripping the skin.

Who this cleanser is for: The micellar gel works well when you’re on the go and don’t have access to water, for example, camping. It’s also handy when you just want to crawl into bed and get rid of makeup and dirt before you hit the lights.

Cleansing Foaming Water

Glycolic acid is one of the most effective ways to brighten and even out your complexion (and who doesn’t love a foamy cleanser).

NeoStrata’s Foaming Water cleanser contains 2% glycolic acid (the AHA of choice) to purify and gently exfoliate the buildup of dead cells on the skin’s surface. To balance out the glycolic acid, Pro-vitamin B and cucumber provide hydrating and soothing benefits.

Who this cleanser is for: If you want to ease glycolic acid into your skincare routine, apply this foamy water to wet skin, massage gently, and rinse.

Oil Free Gel Cleanser 4% Glycolic Acid

For combination or oily skin, Neostrata’s Oil Free Gel Cleanser has 4% glycolic acid to speed up the skin’s exfoliation and remove buildup of dead cells, oil, and impurities on the skin’s surface.
