If you’ve read here very long, you know that I am totally committed to sharing what actually WORKS in terms of skin care and anti-aging (Read: Obsessive Skin Care Hoarding Freak). I’ve shared with you my current skincare routine as well as the products that I use. Each evening, I’m a slave to my skin care routine. Thinking to myself that perhaps tomorrow will be the day that I wake up with skin that looks like Gwenyth Paltrow. I’m not going to lie- layering all that stuff every night takes some real dedication! And my bathroom counter and shelves are showing the burden of my obsession. It’s hard to tell if it’s a bathroom counter or a chemists laboratory.
Enter: Simplicity Skincare.
The CEO & Founder of Simplicity Skincare graciously sent me a bottle of her Reversal Protection Complex to try, claiming I could “unclutter the cabinet” because her anti-aging skincare complex contained everything I would need in one bottle! Oh the embarrassment of riches if such a claim could be true!
It arrived beautifully packaged, and the product itself is contained in a sleek dual pump system, that maintains the integrity of each product.
The ingredient list is extremely impressive. One side holds the moisturizer which contains among other things: Matrixyl 300, Tri-peptide-5 and an ocean based retinol. The other side holds the serum which contains: hyaluronic acid, and is loaded with collagen building peptides. These are powerhouse ingredients in the field of anti-aging and they are rounded out with botanical actives, pure plant oils, and organic vitamins and minerals.
Because of the small molecular structure in the serum, this product gives you the best of both worlds: the serum will deliver the products, the moisturizer will seal and protect while also penetrating the ingredients into the skin.
To use it, you simply place one pump from each chamber onto your fingertips. Mix together and then pat onto cleansed and dried skin, around eyes, face and neck.
It absorbs almost instantly. And thats it. You’re DONE with your skincare routine. It all happened so fast that I found myself looking around my bathroom sheepishly, for something else to do.
I’ve been using this product for about 2 weeks and I have to say- I am completely surprised. While I believe the real benefits of these skin care ingredients (and any others) will best be shown over a few months of use, I am really pleased with the quality of this product and it’s ingredients. The hyaluronic acid does provide a plumping result and the richness of these high end ingredients makes me believe that this product is one to take note of.
I typically will touch up my moisturizer around midday, I’ve been surprised that using this, my skin did not need that midday pick-me-up! I’ve experienced no dryness, tightness or break-outs.
Everything is contained in the one bottle, so there’s no need to layer your serums and lotions. It is quick and it’s effective and it can even be used around the eye area (the moisturizer was originally designed to be used as an eye cream!). For travel, this is a dream.
My opinion: This is a high-end product, with a collection of quality, anti aging ingredients found in much more expensive brands. It’s impressive, and I’m going to keep using it and report back in a month or so.
