For those of you who keep up with my stories, you know I have been on the lookout for various ways to keep my skin clean, clear and hydrated! I teamed up with Glytone to test out their night renewal cream and Enhance brightening complex on my faces and dark spots on some areas of my body! Here's my review of the two products I've been using on my skin (and will continue to use!)
Night Renewal Cream
I've really been focusing on products that boost collagen and help me preserve whatever youth I have left in my skin (lol being 27 is rough). Being out in the sun all day this summer definitely called for some major diligence on my end to take care of my skin at night! The Night Renewal Cream consists of Glycolic Acid and Retin-A (two ingredients we all need for our skin! This nighttime skin firming cream helps clarify, smooth and tone skin while you sleep for a rejuvenated facial complexion. BLESS UP! The anti-aging formula works to reduce age spots and photodamage, leaving skin looking younger and healthier thanks to Glycolic Acid and Retinaldehyde (a direct precursor to Retinoic Acid). I have been using this night cream for a few weeks and definitely notice my skin is smoother and softer. I feel like I can already tell a difference in the lines around my eyes as well, one of my sensitive areas! It doesn't irritate my skin at all and I still wake up feeling hydrated without having to re-apply any moisturizer in the AM! I highly recommend this cream if you're looking for something post nightly cleanse!
Enhance Brightening Complex
Due to my eczema, I have a few darkened patches on my skin that I didn't want to get cosmetic surgery for and wanted to find a cream, serum or product that would help those areas out and even things *as much as possible* before I considered anything else. I started using EBC daily (2X/day morning and night) on the areas I wanted to even out and fix the discoloration. This Enhance Brightening Complex is a hydroquinone-free cream that allows you to minimize the appearance of unwanted dark spots over the course of time. The formula has a mix of antioxidants to help brighten skin and protect it against any future sun damage (you still have to wear sunscreen everywhere!) I applied EBC to my neck and clavical area as I have some discoloration there and have started to see the results of my disciplined skin routine! It's definitely not an overnight fix but the otherwise defined spots have started to fade! :) I would recommend this especially if you have acne scars - its a safer alternative than putting a bunch of chemicals on your skin again and again trying to make things fade!
Would I continue to use Glytone products for my skin? You betcha! I love that these products are effective and you can truly see the change if you keep up with applying and take care of your skin throughout the day.
