By now you all know, I love skin care and beauty products. As a woman who is 30 years old, I think it's super-important to maintain a good skin care regiment. I have actually been using anti-aging products since I was in my early 20's. Hey, it makes sense to practice prevention before there's a problem. I would make rather use anti-aging products before I need them than have to rush to the nearest cosmetic surgeon for Botox or a facelift!
I have to be honest. I really don't have too many skin issues. I don't have wrinkles and my skin is in pretty good condition overall. I always use products with SPF, and I have also used many, many different kinds of skin care products over the years. Some I loved, some...Well, not so much.
Lately, I have been a fan of products that utilize the power of nature rather than use harsh chemicals. One such brand I discovered is éclos Skin Care. éclos features Apple Stem Cells extracted from a rare Swiss apple which have shown tremendous ability to stimulate skin stem cells, encouraging aging skin to behave like younger skin. Plant extracts, vitamins and anti-oxidants combine with the Apple Stem Cell technology to help minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and tired skin.
eclos Skin Care products are gentle, and maintain the proper pH balance of the skin through the use of PhytoPlex 24, a proprietary blend of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant botanicals. Yep, these products are plant based, so you know they're bound to be ultra-nourishing to the skin!
You may have seen similar products on the market before, but they've always been available only at high end department stores and cost an arm and a leg! éclos Skin Care is the first brand to make this technology available at mainstream stores for literally a fraction of the cost.
I received an eclos starter kit to try for myself. This kit includes:
• Facial Cleanser Skin Prep
• Cellular Activator Face Serum
• Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream
• Restorative Eye Cream
• Instant Radiance Facial Scrub
• Skin Renewal Clay Mask
• éclos Terry Cloth Head Band
I have been using this kit for about a week, and I have to say, I like it a lot! This product is very simple to use. You simply use a quarter sized amount, massaging it onto the skin. Then you rinse it away with water, just like any other cleanser. While I don't see a visible difference after such a short time, I do feel one. My skin seems a bit softer, and after using these products, I do feel very refreshed and clean.
Here are some before and after photos. I hate having my picture taken without make-up, but the first is au-natural, at the pool. The after photo was taken about a week later, and all I have on my face is lip-gloss and eye make-up. Like I said, no truly visible difference just yet. However, I am confident that with prolonged use, eclos would provide a more dramatic change.
Overall, I am quite impressed by eclos Skin Care. These products are a great anti-aging solution for women on a budget who want the same, luxurious experince that celebs enjoy. With today's economy, I think this applies to the vast majority of us! These products are a fantastic way to pamper the skin and keep those pesky wrinkles at bay!
So who's up for a giveaway? The awesome folks at eclos Skin Care want you to experience the difference they've got to offer, and are generously giving one lucky reader the same starter kit I received! How cool is that?!
