When I was purchasing new makeup from the drug store a few weeks ago, I was given samples to the NeoStrata skin care line. I was given a night time repair cream and an eye cream. The night cream blew me away, and I had only used it twice! So I immediately went to purchase the full tin of it.
When I purchased the night repair cream, I was given these three other samples to try out. A microdermabrasion exfoliator, an activator gel to go over the microdermabrasion and a glycolic renewal lotion. I purchased them at Shoppers Drug Mart (for those in Canada).
I didn’t want to post too soon about these products, because I really wanted to try out how they were on my skin. So, it has been roughly three weeks, and I love them!
The night repair cream ($39.00) is SO hydrating, my skin feels so fresh, dewy and soft now, I don’t know how I didn’t have this product before. It has definitely smoothed out my skin to give it a more even texture, and it has penetrated my fine lines to make them look less harsh. I have lines around my eyes and smile lines, and these have definitely reduced them. I recommend this product, especially since it is not as expensive as high-end creams and moisturizers that claim to do the same.
Secondly, the microdermabrasion and activator gel ($75.00, *I was given these for not cost*) were awesome. I only exfoliate about once a week, or every other, making sure not to irritate my skin. I used the crystals first for about one minute, rubbing in circular motions around the face and neck. Then, I placed the activator gel on top of the crystals and rubbed that in for two more minutes. I wiped it off with a damp towel, and my skin felt so fresh, soft and rejuvenated.
Finally, the glycolic renewal lotion ($39.00, *I was given this for no cost*) was used after I exfoliated. It didn’t do too much for me, honestly. Nothing that my regular moisturizer couldn’t do. I do admit that I need to try to keep using it, but the more I mix up my products, the more I tend to break out. So I will keep this lotion on a back burner for now, until I run out of my current moisturizer, which is my favourite currently, Murad.
Overall, the NeoStrata products were awesome, and I do recommend them. Let me know in the comment below if you use any of their products or let me know what skin care products you use!
