It is a new year, and beauty trends come and go. When it comes to skin care, I am always on the lookout for the newest brands that have been developed using the latest technologies and scientific advances that bring us one step closer to discovering the fountain of youth! My goal is to keep my skin looking as youthful and as beautiful as possible for as long as I can.
Thankfully I have discovered products from these dermatologist-developed skincare brands, Dr. Zenovia and Replenix along with products from new skin-fitness line, HERB+FLORA, that reproduces the anti-aging effects of exercise on the skin.
Below are a few of the latest and most amazing anti-aging skin care products that I have had the opportunity to review, and I want to share them with you.
Did you know 80% of women suffer from health issues due to hormonal imbalance? Dr. Zenovia’s groundbreaking research shows hormonal imbalances can cause all kinds of issues in the skin.
Since I am getting older, I am a candidate for products that are designed for hormonal aging.
As we age, our skin may experience dryness, loss of firmness, and uneven tone due to a natural decrease in the production of collagen and the hormone, estrogen. Estrogen is responsible for maintaining fluid balance and the skin’s structural integrity. Dr. Zenovia’s products are formulated with her proprietary REG-ulate360 Complex™ which features medical-grade actives and a cutting-edge, plant-derived phytoestrogen to help restore the appearance of hormonally imbalanced skin to an optimal healthy state.
I was given the opportunity to review a couple of Dr. Zenovia’s products scientifically formulated to help maintain the skin’s youthful elasticity and tone, while combatting the effects of hormonal aging on the skin. They are Dr Zenovia’s Bakuchiol Hydrating Cleanser and Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer.
Dr. Zenovia’s Bakuchiol Hydrating Cleanser is a clinical-grade, pH balanced, soap-free cleanser is specially designed to be suitable for even the most sensitive skin. Dr. Zenovia’s soothing, anti-aging REG-ulate360 Complex™ and powerful antioxidant blend of Green Tea and botanicals help brighten, nourish, hydrate and protect skin. I love the way it leaves my skin feeling so fresh and renewed after each cleansing. I use it morning before applying makeup, and in the evening to remove every trace of makeup and all impurities from my skin. It even removes eye makeup without irritating my eyes.
After cleansing, I love to use Dr. Zenovia’s Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer. Peptide + Ceramide Repairing Moisturizer dramatically helps enhance skin’s tone and radiance, while helping to restore the look of firm, plump skin. Featuring Dr. Zenovia’s exclusive proprietary REG-ulate360 Complex™ to help balance hormonal skin, the advanced formula helps protect the integrity of skin’s dermal matrix, helping to strengthen skin’s barrier and boost elasticity to enhance the appearance of healthy, plump skin. Perfect for both a day and a night cream, this is definitely one of the best, most hydrating facial creams I have ever used! I especially love it for protecting my skin during the colder temperatures of winter.
For hormonal acne, Dr. Zenovia’s Clear Complexion Acne Solution System is the perfect solution for clearing up the skin.
This three-step system of derm-developed topicals including our 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Cleanser, 5% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Spot Treatment, and Aloe Vera Blemish Soothing Moisturizer is the ultimate solution for fighting hormonal acne. Infused with powerful clinical grade ingredients including Benzoyl Peroxide, medical-grade Aloe Vera, and Dr. Zenovia’s proprietary REG-ulate360 Complex™, this kit will help diminish current breakouts and redness while soothing acne-prone, sensitive skin.
My daughter-in-law suffers from hormonal acne. Her skin has really flared up, due to her birth control. She had tried just about every acne product available on the market. After using Dr. Zenovia’s Clear Complexion Acne Solution System for just two weeks, her skin is clear of acne. It is especially perfect for her sensitive skin.
The next brand that I was given the opportunity to try out is Replenix. This medical-grade skincare brand is so high-performance and powerful, it was previously only available through a Dermatologist. As a global pioneer in powerful antioxidant technology, REPLENIX revolutionized skincare with the introduction of its proprietary Green Tea Polyphenol Technology, which incorporated a first-of-its-kind green tea purified to an unprecedented 90%, making it the world’s most powerful antioxidant technology available on the market.
I was given the opportunity to review two of this brand’s top-selling products- REPLENIX Antioxidant Hydrating Cleanser and REPLENIX Soothing Antioxidant Mist.
Since cleansing is an important first step to any skin care regimen for maintaining healthy and radiant skin, I always choose a cleanser that leaves my skin clean, balanced and supple.
REPLENIX Antioxidant Hydrating Cleanser is a dermatologist-developed deeply hydrating cleanser that gently cleanses and replenishes skin while helping to maintain skin’s delicate pH balance and promoting a more youthful glow. Rich in powerful, ultra-purified medical-grade antioxidants and natural botanicals, skin’s radiance is restored with each use. Skin is calmed and soothed, while it’s left deeply nourished, hydrated, and balanced for a healthier, more supple complexion.
I love to use this cleanser first thing in the morning before applying my skin care products, and at the end of the day to remove makeup and impurities. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, clean and radiant.
REPLENIX Soothing Antioxidant Mist is scientifically formulated to soothe, calm and rejuvenate skin. This refreshing mist is fortified with an advanced blend of medical-grade antioxidants to refine pores, help remove excess oil, and brighten even the dullest, tired complexions. A powerful blend of clinical-grade micro-nutrients works together to help enhance skin tone and remove impurities while powerful humectants provide deep, soothing hydration. Dermatologist-developed to be ideal for all skin types, including those with rosacea-prone and extra sensitive skin.
I have never really used a facial mist before trying this one, but I have since discovered that face mists are actually one of the most versatile, multitasking beauty products. I have used it after applying my favorite facial cream, as a final spritz to seal in much needed hydration during the colder weather we are having. I also like to keep it in my gym bag as the perfect refresher for after working out. It really soothes my skin, and I can’t wait to use it during the summer to cool down my skin on warm days. I have read that some beauty influencers use facial mists like this one to set their foundation after application for a glowing, dewy look.
The next brand that I am very excited about is Herb + Flora. I am crazy about this brand, and this is my second time at reviewing their amazing skin care products. (Here is a link to the review from about a year ago, when I first gave Herb + Flora a try.)
I was given another opportunity to review Eye of the Cyclops Recovery Eye Gel and The Potion Youth Recovery Serum.
The Potion Youth Recovery Serum is formulated with the highest concentration of Herb + Flora’s own Exercise Mimic Youth™ Complex combined with a gentle level of smoothing AHA and PHA and skin replenishing mineral electrolytes, The Potion Serum helps accelerate skin’s daily recovery and reveal a smooth, renewed complexion without irritation. As a result, skin looks healthier, gently rested and younger-looking as if after a professional facial.
I use this heaven-sent serum right after cleansing and right before my moisturizer. My skin is intensely hydrated, nourished and so soft to the touch. After just 8 days, I noticed that my skin is not only deeply moisturized, but it also looks firmer, my fine lines are less visible and looks completely radiant!
And no skin care regimen is complete without the perfect eye cream. My top pick is definitely Eye of the Cyclops Recovery Eye Gel!
Eye of the Cyclops Recovery Eye Gel helps stimulate skin recovery in the delicate eye area without irritation and minimize the look of crow’s feet, undereye bags and dark circles. Formulated with their own Exercise Mimic Youth™ Complex –combined with Omega 3, 6, 9 fatty acids, potent Mediterranean botanical antioxidants, and natural Eyeliss™ known to decrease undereye bags, to smooth and awaken the eye area with an after-exercise glow. The eye contour appears rested, healthy and youthful… as if you got a long night’s sleep.
I don’t always get the best night’s sleep, and so an under-eye gel or cream is a must-have! Herb + Flora’s recovery eye gel is everything I could ever ask for in a product to save me from bags and dark circles. It really helps me to look like I have had a restful night.
After a week of using Eye of the Cyclops Recovery Eye Gel, my under-eye lines look completely diminished, the skin is firmer, and the circles are just no longer an issue. I love it!
