Transition Into Spring With Luxe Skincare!

I am lucky to be able to try so many great skincare products.  And I love so many of them, from drugstore brands to department and beauty supply stores.

But, I have to admit, there is something about trying luxe, high-end skincare. The packaging is gorgeous and the products usually smell and feel amazing.

Below are products from Cosmedicine and Silkriller that I was sent for my honest review.  They may be a splurge, but they are totally worth it!

Cosmedicine Triple-P Perfected Brightening Serum
Cosmedicine Triple-P Perfected Brightening Serum

Cosmedicine Triple-P Perfected Brightening Serum ($210 USD) — serves as a daily vitamin for our skin. Decades of research led the Cosmedicine team to reveal the perfect formulation to effectively reverse the harmful visual effects of environmental damage, lessening the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles while brightening and illuminating skin’s overall complexion.

Formulated with three forms of Vitamin C to optimize full-potency absorption, this antioxidant-packed serum boosts the skin’s natural resistance to sun damage. Add this advanced complexion-perfecting serum, formulated with powerful antioxidants and multivitamins, to any skin care regimen to form a weightless, natural protective shield against daily environmental assaults. Triple-P works double duty to protect skin while simultaneously allowing it to absorb essential minerals to reduce the appearance of fine lines and impart a glowing even complexion day after day.

What I think: I have been using this light gel-like serum day and night before my moisturizer.  I love how it sinks right into the skin.  It really does brighten my skin and makes it glow!  I haven’t been using it long enough to see a reduction in

Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion

Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion

Cosmedicine blends cosmetics and medicine in the hopes of making skin healthier. They have created products to aide with such skin conditions as oily skin and aging skin.  

Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20 ($42.00 1.35 oz) is a great way to keep your face from looking greasy in the hot summer sun. It claims to eliminate excess oil, control shine for 8 hours and provide the hydration that oily skin needs to become balanced over time. Instead of absorbing oil and sitting on the skin, it was created to work on a molecular level to flash oil off of the skin’s surface.

Ingredients include dimethicone to bolster skin’s natural defenses, Glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) to regenerate skin cells, retinol to treat lines and wrinkles and to help skin tone, vitamin C which is an antioxidant to counteract skin damage, and pomegranate extract to fight free radicals. 

My skin is combination, so I have been using this in my t-zone. It is a thick, white lotion that needs to be patted on for the white to disappear. Once the white disappears, my face is smooth and matte, and my pores appear smaller.

I really recommend this for anyone with oily or combination skin. It not only keeps skin matte, it smooths the skin and I find that I need less foundation when I am wearing it.

You can purchase this product at Nordstrom, Sephora or check out their website www.cosmedicine.com for more information.
