Dear Mama Friends,
I used to see my Great Grandmother slather her face at night with a special white cream and always wondered, “What Is that?”. She was religious about it and faithfully dedicated herself at night to properly cleansing and moisturizing her face before bed then waking and doing it again. Those were some of my very first memories with her so I know that she had focused on her skincare for a very long time. Of course, her hard work paid off and she had the most beautiful skin with a glowing texture her entire life.
Then there’s me, who in my early 20’s was an overachiever athlete and could sweat like a boy and not wash my face immediately after a long workout or run. I would be in the sun all day without sunscreen and sleep in my makeup. To say that I was bad on my skin is an understatement. Then in my later 20’s I became pregnant and my skin texture changed. I had that same glowing skin as my Great Grandmother and I felt in love with the plump, soft texture of my face (even if I was swollen from pregnancy).
After becoming a mother something changes inside of you. Old habits of mine fell to the wayside and I have begun to take a vested interest in taking care of my skin. I quickly learned that you have to become invested in caring for your skin in your 30’s because its so very important to start early. I know that my generation wasn’t exposed regularly to sunscreen and at our childhood home, this was applied after the sunburn had already turned our faces and shoulders pink. I have twin daughters that also watch me as I’m getting ready for bed and stare just as I used to, curious as to what I’m putting on my face to take care of my body. I want to be the best mom that I can be and represent things that I want my daughters to do, so I encourage them to take care of their skin now – it’s the only one you’ve got!
In my journey to learn about better skincare and researching intensive skin care products, I have come across quite a few. Some are good. Some are ehh. There are many that talked A LOT of talk on their packaging yet left my skin oily and drab. I heard about a brand called Exuviance a while ago through a top ranked beauty magazine and was interested that it was referred to as a “cult favorite amongst skincare consumers“. I thought this was intriguing because there hadn’t been a product yet that I would deem myself as being in their cult – I just wasn’t getting everything I wanted from the brands I had tried so far.
Later, I was given the opportunity to sample the Exuviance brand Evening Resorative Complex cream and I’m here to report – that I’m in the cult. There’s something about it that from the moment you put it on your skin, that makes you instantly feel brighter, tighter and glowing. After the first few uses I immediately saw a difference in my skin and after 2 weeks, I have seen such a substantial difference it’s mind blowing. I was troubled by sun spots and areas of my skin that were photo damaged. Since using this cream, my skin has become much more even and my skin tone is more smooth than it has ever been. I also noticed that where I felt I was getting fine lines from the first few years of parenting seemed to diminish and my skin was tighter and seemed more plump.
I researched why this cream was totally different than anything I had previously tried and was very impressed by its products and performance. It’s a Dermatologist developed skin care line that has perfected the science of skin transformation. They use only the best of the best researchers, developers and products to create their line and have patented their own bionic blend of “Polyhydroxy and Alpha Hydroxy acids.. It has also added Lactobionic Acid – a potent antioxidant – that helps inhibit wrinkles from forming, plumps and firms the skin, and enhances clarity” (Exuviance.com). Exuviance is strong enough to fight the signs of aging while being gentle enough to use at bedtime or even after a Microdermabrasion or Glycolic Peels.
There were so many things that I became obsessed with after trying and learning about this product, but most importantly I liked the price point. Having paid significantly high prices in the past for products that left me hanging, a full size bottle retails for $48 and will last you a lifetime. After watching my Mimi care for her skin and seeing the impression I am making on my daughters, I think that you have to weigh the risks of skin damage versus the cost of repairing the only skin you have. If you want a trusted product that will be everything you want in a skincare product and more, make sure to grab Exuviance Evening Restorative Complex. There’s a reason why they call it a cult favorite and I’m sold!
