Triple Lipid Restorative Facial with SkinCeuticals
A few weeks ago, I had the best experience at Advanced Skincare and Dermatology partnering with SkinCeuticals to test out their newest facial, the Triple Lipid Restorative Facial. SkinCeuticals mission is to provide “advanced skincare backed by science,” and they are proving that it works.
The facial itself consisted of a lot of masks, and even a peel. There was zero pain, just a little tingling on some of the products. Once it was all over, I could feel the dramatic difference in my face. My skin felt instantly lighter, like all of the dead skin cells had been removed and revealed a smoother and tighter layer underneath. Not to mention how hydrated my skin was and how much brighter my skin tone looked.
My aesthetician, Liz, at the Advanced Dermatology and Skincare Clinic, was the best! She knew so much about skincare and everything there was to know about the SkinCeuticals products. She was so knowledgeable, personable, and kind. I loved hearing what she had to say about the products, and she knew the answers to all of my questions! She even recommended products that would work best on my skin after we were done.
My favorite products that were used during my facial include the following four:
- CE Ferulic (Vitamin C Serum)
- Antioxidant Lip Repair
- Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2
- Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50
This was the main product the facial was about: the Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2. This product is a morning and nighttime moisturizer that is formulated to help with skin’s lipid loss. It contains 2% ceramides, 4% cholesterol, and 2% fatty acids, hence the ‘2:4:2’ reference in the name. This lightweight moisturizer has been clinically proven to restore three main things caused from lipid loss: wrinkles, fine lines, and skin firmness. It also helps shrink pore size, restore and protect skin’s barrier, refine texture, and increase skin’s overall radiance. It can also help with skin’s tolerance to retinoids, which I have struggled with. It is an ideal pairing with a retinoid, so I have been using it the past four weeks with my retinoid and haven’t had any dryness or peeling I usually get when using a retinoid.
The CE Ferulic uses vitamin C to help combat aging, discoloration, and environmental stressors. Environmental stressors include things we face on a daily basis: UV rays, pollution, and infrared-A radiation. It has proven to provide eight times as much protection to the skin against environmental stressors. It also works against fine lines and wrinkles, while firming and brightening skin. Other ingredients are vitamin E and ferulic acid. This serum has won thirty-five beauty awards! That is definitely saying something.
The Antioxidant Lip Repair is a game changer. Putting it on makes my lips feel like they are on a cloud and as smooth as silk. It works to fight aging lips as well as environmental stressors. Plus, it is a miracle worked on dry lips by replenishing lost moisture. After using this product, I do not know how I have come so far in life without it! It will always be used in my skincare regimen now.
The first thing we did before my facial, was take a UV photo of my skin. I was so scared to see the results, and I was pretty horrified by all of the sun damage. My aesthetician stressed to me how important it is to use sunscreen every day. I had been told before, that once you reached an SPF 30, it was basically all the same. She was quick to tell me that I couldn’t be more misinformed. SkinCeuticals has one SPF 30, but all of the rest are SPF 50 and that is what they recommend.
I was treated to the Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 at the end of my facial. It is a very lightweight, slightly tinted, mineral fluid that doesn’t feel oily or make your skin sticky. It is 100% mineral-based and uses key ingredients like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to work against sun damage. Oh, and did I mention it doesn’t cause breakouts? It actually helps with acne, plus aging and skin discoloration. I think I just met my sunscreen match for life.
I had such a great experience at Advanced Dermatology and Skincare Clinic partnering with SkinCeuticals! Thank you for the incredible facial and the amazing products that I now incorporate in my daily skincare routine.
