As you all may probably already know I just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl November 2017, and I find myself having sleepless nights which have caused me to have under eye bags and some fine lines and wrinkles. Also, this year I will be turning 34 years old, so I’ve decided that this year I will be working on adding some really effective anti aging products to my anti-aging skincare routine. Currently, my skin has changed drastically after having baby #2 for some reason, I find that it is super sensitive to the point where I have to use baby laundry to detergent when washing my clothes; Most of the skincare products I use are paraben free, fragrance free and are not harsh on the skin.
Many skincare products claim to do certain things to the skin, promising to rid your skin of wrinkles, acne, or give you brighter skin etc. I have to say that I was skeptical about Skin Euphoria’s serum, I had never heard of the company before, and the claims seemed almost too good to be true. I decided to give it a try based on some of the ingredients in the product, because many of the ingredients were ingredients that I knew, to be effective in helping to promote a more youthful and healthier looking appearance to the skin. I embarked on a 28 day journey to really put this product to the test, to see whether or not the claims made by the product would prove to be true. I took pictures of my journey to see if there would be any difference in the appearance of my skin.
The product claims the following :
Instantly: Restores your skin’s natural radiance
In 3 Days: Your skin feels firm and plumped
In Just 2 Weeks, See a More Lifted Look: Skin feels lifted, facial contours, jawline and cheeks are more defined. Lines and wrinkles look dramatically reduced.
Visibly reduces lines and wrinkles
Improves skin density and defines natural facial contours
Enhances skin tone and texture
Leaves skin feeling smooth, hydrated and rejuvenated
The price of the product is one of the reasons why I love this product, it is $45 which is very affordable considering the ingredients it contains, the price is subject to change eventually as the product grows in demand. Many name brand serums on the market can go for hundreds of dollars and contain pretty much the same ingredients. It is not very often that there are products on the market that are both affordable and effective, thus making this product a must have item.
Where to Get It?
This product can be purchased online through the Skin Euphoria website which is a UK website or if you are in the USA you can email email@example.com to make any purchasing inquiries. Unfortunately, the company does not have a website setup yet for USA, but it is in the works. Also, the SimplyFlo blog will be carrying Skin Euphoria products on the site, so you will be able to make purchases directly from here on the site. Skin Euphoria is also looking for salons, clinics, etc. who would be interested in selling their serum, if you are interested in this opportunity you can email them as well firstname.lastname@example.org.
SO WHAT’S IN THE BOTTLE?…..
Argireline® is a peptide, which is a small fragment of proteins that are the main building blocks of all living tissues. Argireline® relaxes facial tension, leading to the relaxation of facial muscles that contribute to lines and wrinkles. It also prevents the build up of chromaffin cells, which contribute to wrinkle production. Argireline’s® effects are very similar to those of BOTOX® injections, showing a 30% reduction in wrinkle size after only 30 days.
The wonderful thing about Argireline® is that it naturally relaxes facial tension, while being non-toxic and non-invasive. Topical application of Argireline® is an effective method of delivery making it suitable for our Firming and Collagen Booster Serum.
Matrixyl 3000 ® works in an entirely different way than Argireline® does. Instead of relaxing the muscle tissue, Matrixyl 3000 ® works to promote the growth of collagen and other proteins, increasing skin elasticity and plumpness. One of the causes of wrinkles is that these compounds, especially collagen, become broken down and causes the skin to develop folds and wrinkles. Matrixyl 3000 ® is an anti-aging peptide that helps your skin look and act more youthful by promoting collagen and elastin production, while removing blemishes and impurities.
Hyaluronic acid isn’t an acid in the way you might think. Unlike salicylic, glycolic and lactic acids, hyaluronic acid doesn’t remove dead cells from your skin. On the contrary, it adds something vital to optimal skin health: water.
Hyaluronic acid is the naturally occurring and widespread component found within the extracellular matrix (ECM) within bodily tissues, especially those of the face. It is now produced as a reactive by-product of benign bacteria and is identical to the substance found within the skin. Its water-binding and water-attracting attributes fill up the spaces between the connective fibers collagen and elastin in the dermis. When injected into the face, hyaluronic acid functions to hydrate and separate the skin, holding onto water and supporting all that makes the face plump and voluptuous.
Sodium hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size as hyaluronic acid (making it especially penetrative), and is able to hold more water than any other natural substance—up to 1,000 times its weight in water! Thanks to these to attributes, when applied topically to the skin it can reach deep down into the dermis to combine with, maintain and attract water. It also promotes skin/blood micro-circulation and nutrient absorption, and helps maintain normal metabolism. Thanks to its super-sized hydrating properties, sodium hyaluronate will result in smoother, softer skin with decreased wrinkles and an all-around fuller appearance. It also protects and preserves skin with a strong dose of hyaluronic acid that helps keep skin looking beautiful and youthful over the long term.
My first day of using the serum, I felt the effects almost immediately after use, I applied it to my forehead, cheeks, chin, and neck. I applied it in an upward motion, and left it on my face, until it dried up, then I applied my daily moisturizer. The serum does not have a fragrance, it is a light weight gel, and is great for sensitive skin; what I like most about this serum is the instant tightening feeling that you feel, it is not an uncomfortable tightening feeling. After the products dries, your face looks, amazing, make sure you do not apply too much product because it will leave and ashy residue. But overall, this product does exactly what it says it is suppose to do. I did notice that my skin looked more youthful after 28 days of using the product. I have decided to make this product a permanent part of my anti aging skincare routine because it is effective and is perfect for my sensitive skin.
