Review, Ingredients: Colbert MD Skincare - Triad Facial - Intensify Facial Discs,  Stimulate The Serum, Illumino Face Oil

“With the right products, the skin’s ability to heal itself is amazing.”- Dr. David Colbert

I have friends that swear by this man! They go to him for their skincare needs and look up to him as a nutritional skin guru of sorts. My friend, Linda Rodin, Founder and Creator of Olio Lusso, first debuted her collection there years ago and I remember thinking, “Why haven’t I tried his products before?”

Review, Ingredients: Colbert MD Skincare - Triad Facial - Intensify Facial Discs,  Stimulate The Serum, Illumino Face Oil
David Colbert, MD, (seen above) founder of New York Dermataology Group in Manhattan, introduces his debut skincare line: Colbert MD. This line is said to be extraordinary, as it features 3 core daily products that are needed for youthful, healthy, radiant skin.

I know that he is one of the most sought-after dermatologists, also being an accomplished author. My closest friends go to him for fillers, doing so with a natural touch. They never look like anything was “done” — they only look as if they are well-rested.

Review, Ingredients: Colbert MD Skincare - Triad Facial - Intensify Facial Discs,  Stimulate The Serum, Illumino Face Oil
It was my pleasure to review and use the Intensify Facial DiscsStimulate The Serum, Balance Purifying Cleanser and one of the most touted about oils: Illumino Face Oil.

These signature products are intended for daily use. The Stimulate The Serum supposedly replicates the results one would get from a chemical peel and/or laser toning; Nutrify & Protect Day protects against environmental damage and Heal & Soothe Night reduces inflammation — when used all together it is known as the Triad Facial.

The Intensify Facial Discs are to be used in conjunction with this Triad Facial regimen 2-3 times a week. To me, these discs are amazing as they act as an exfoliant that mimics a microdermabrasion effect.

Review, Ingredients: Colbert MD Skincare - Triad Facial - Intensify Facial Discs,  Stimulate The Serum, Illumino Face Oil
Apply discs to a clean, damp face and move them in a gentle, circular motion for anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds. You then rinse immediately with warm water and follow with Stimulate The Serum. Use discs morning or night; you must rinse thoroughly with water and avoid your eye area. Never use these on damaged or irritated skin. For my sensitive skin, they work!

My skin did not get irritated or burn in any way, as the ingredients are less harsh than the glycolic pads I’ve tried in the past where my skin literally rubbed off after using them. Products that are too strong are not good for such sensitive skin such as my own.

Stimulate The Serum felt cool when applied on my cleansed skin after using the Intensify Facial Discs. It is said to instantly boost collagen reproduction by working deep within the skin to restore its vibrancy and youthful radiance. The Serum is patented with QuSome (TM) Technology to facilitate the regeneration of healthy, supple skin. You can apply it once a day, morning or night — and I saw immediate evenness in my skin’s coloration upon application.

Balance Purifying Cleanser has anti-aging benefits and gently removes oil and surface impurities, leaving behind soft, smooth and clean skin that is ready for the Colbert MD regimen. There is ginko biloba, lasctic acid, allanton and bisabolol — key ingredients all working together to exfoliate, purify, condition and act as anti-irritants for the skin. This cleanser can be applied in a circular motion to a damp face. Rinse well with warm water and pat (don’t scrub!) dry.

Finally, the ever-so-popular face oil among celebrities and skincare lovers alike: the Ilumino Face Oil. It’s intended to instantly soothe and improve skin’s overall tone, texture and glow. I can tell you that retinol and vitamin C esters work at the topical level to soothe the skin, while the patented QuSome (TM) Technology delivers the oil deep into the dermis for optimal results.

This is known as the “oils of oils”, and can be massaged into cleansed, damp skin for best results. Key ingredients include: yangu oil, borage seed oil, marula oil, passion fruit oil and argan oil to improve skin’s elasticity, aid in cell repair and improve skin’s overall tone and texture.

Review, Swatches: Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Summer 2014 Collection - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing, Volumizing Brow & Hair Powder, Maracuja Bronzing Serum, LipSurgence Lip Gloss

Now that the weather has finally stopped being moody (and starting to warm up), I’ve totally got summer on the mind lately! Okay, so maybe I’m not breaking out the flip flops just yet, but you best bet that I’m seriously ready (buh-bye, snowpocalypse) for that golden and glowy makeup season.

Get Matchy-Matchy Lips And Cheeks With Tarte To Brighter Days Spring 2014 Collection

Thankfully, Tarte is already indulging my thirst for everything Summer 2014, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic, especially since the Golden Days & Sultry Nights Summer 2014 Collection is definitely worth writing home to mom about. Boasting bold color and handy water-proof favorites, it’s time to channel your inner mermaid and test out any of these goodies for a true seasonal finish.

What’s In My Bag? – Tarte, Shiseido, Ban, butter London, Tory Burch, Kiehl’s, Still Standing Pain Reliever Spray

I’m all for some ah-mazing glam-and-go products, so I’m proud to say that while using the Fresh Eyes Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes, no traces of stubborn makeup were left behind, as these maracuja-infused makeup removing wipes cleanse the skin while leaving it dewy and radiant.

Equally fast yet effective comes the Not So Slick Oil-Absorbing Blotting Papers, which remove excess shine from your face, pronto. I just love sticking these babies inside my purse at all times, as its green tea and polyphenol-rich formula gets me camera-ready in a flash. And when my complexion is looking a bit dull, the Maracuja Bronzing Serum always comes to my aid, as its hydrating and glow-enhancing formula gives my skin a necessary dose of healthy-looking color whenever I need it.

Review, Swatches: Tarte Golden Days & Sultry Nights Summer 2014 Collection - Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing, Volumizing Brow & Hair Powder, Maracuja Bronzing Serum, LipSurgence Lip Gloss

To glam up my peepers, I’ve been crushing hard over the Limited-Edition Lights, Camera, Splashes Waterproof Mascara, which takes my sparse lashes to sky-high heights with its volumizing and conditioning formula. Plus, this baby is totally water-proof, so it’s totally worth wearing when you’re poolside later this year.

While we’re still talking about water-proof must-haves, the Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Long Wear Liquid Eyeliner lines your eyes gorgeous with a special-tipped applicator. With continued use, be prepared to achieve only the most precise cat-eyes with this liquid liner alternative. Finally, the Frame Worker Double-Ended Brow Powder Brush helps me achieve that fuller-brow look, as its dual-sided brush easily defines brows immediately.

Don’t let me forget to mention how awesome the Brazilliance Skin Rejuvinating Maracuja Self Tanning Face Towelettes work to get you that irresistible faux tan! I mean, application couldn’t be easier, as these facial towelettes can be easily wiped onto the face for a sexy, golden color. To set in your bronze even further, the Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder uses Amazonian clay to set in makeup and skincare favorites for some heavy-duty long-wear. Additionally, Amazonian clay also finds its way inside the Amazonian Clay Volumizing Brow & Hair Powder, which helps create the illusion of fuller brows (and scalp!).

And if you’re like me and love some juicy gloss for the summertime, the LipSurgence Lip Gloss glams up lips with a brightening pop of color you won’t find anywhere else. Promising a bombshell shine, your lips will be sure to thank you, as this tube of goodness uses vitamin E and jojoba oil to plump up your lips.

Review, Ingredients: Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced & Targeted Blemish Serum Treatment, Complexion Perfecting BB Creme: Best At Preventing Acne Breakouts

When I think of Estée Lauder, one of the last things that come to mind is an acne-fighting line. The Serum Experts — the scientists who have made all of Estée Lauder’s best-selling anti-aging and brightening serums — have created a skincare line to help women fight the acne cycle at the source! The Clear Difference line includes a serum, targeted treatment and BB Creme to get your complexion clear and smooth.

“Blemishes aren’t just for teenagers – preventing breakouts is a top concern for women today,” says Dr. Nadine Pernodet, Vice President, Basic Science Research – R&D, The Estée Lauder Companies. “This new system is specifically designed to help stop the cycle of breakouts and significantly reduce the look of blemishes and pores.”

The NEW Triple Action Clarity Technology includes a special blend of salicylic acid, glucosamine (a natural and proven sugar-derived skin refiner) and laminaria saccharina (a natural marine extract that helps control oil), which works in three ways to stop the breakout cycle, refine and calm the skin and control excess oil and refine the look of pores.

A serum for acne? Yup! The skin-refinishing Advanced Blemish Treatment efficiently discourages blemishes and excess shine, while also helping to reduce the look of pores. This non-drying acne medication also hydrates skin without irritating or clogging pores. The silky, fluid formula features a lightly scented, aromatic botanical blend featuring cool mint notes of peppermint and eucalyptus. It isn’t heavy at all and feels great on freshly toned skin.

Review, Ingredients: Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced & Targeted Blemish Serum Treatment, Complexion Perfecting BB Creme: Best At Preventing Acne Breakouts

NEW Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment is formulated with the highest concentration of Triple Action Clarity Technology. It comes in a syringe-looking applicator with a roller ball tip to apply the clear acne medication. You simply click the end to push up an appropriate amount of topical medication for a single application. It feels cooling once on the skin and features a purifying aromatic blend of cool, fresh peppermint and eucalyptus.

This fast-acting treatment fights existing blemishes, penetrating fast to rapidly reduce the size of blemishes while minimizing redness and irritation. Applied at the first sign of a flare up, this targeted treatment will discourage blemishes from getting bigger so skin looks smooth. The acne treatment is so lightweight it can even be worn under makeup. I have to say, my blemishes did appear to look “smaller” and shrunk in size after a few days. In just one day, Clear Difference Targeted Blemish Treatment provides a 22% reduction in active blemishes.

Review, Ingredients: Estée Lauder Clear Difference Advanced & Targeted Blemish Serum Treatment, Complexion Perfecting BB Creme: Best At Preventing Acne Breakouts

The NEW Clear Difference Complexion Perfecting BB Creme SPF 35 hydrates, protects, perfects, calms and soothes skin. I just love applying a makeup that is actually beneficial in the fight against acne! It perfectly complements Clear Difference anti-blemish treatments to even out skintone, while providing hydration and oil-control.

Estée Lauder Double Wear All Day Glow BB Moisture Makeup SPF 30, Brush-On Glow BB Cream Highlighter

Color-correcting pigments instantly neutralize redness and help conceal blemish marks, pores and flaws while soothing ingredients also help reduce the look of redness and irritation. Available in 3 semi-sheer shades that flatter a wide range of skintones – Light, Medium and Medium Deep – skin is left looking soft, clear and naturally beautiful. At first, I thought the Light shade was a bit too yellow, but it actually blended down to a neutral finish to counteract noticeable hyperpigmentation and present acne.

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica® Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

Last time I checked in, I was just getting started with the Growth Factor Challenge. So now that I’ve really gotten into using both the Regenica® Overnight Repair and SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum® products, it’s time to see how these babies are transforming my skin (see above; second week in).

See Week 1 Results:

The Skincare Growth Factor Challenge! SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, Regenica® Advanced Rejuvenation Overnight Repair

To start, I was instructed to first use the Regenica® Overnight Repair for one week, as it reverses skin aging with advanced multipotent growth factors, which signal skin cells to repair the core causes of wrinkles. Now let’s face it, any wrinkle-busting product is good by me, so I was more than thrilled to slather on this special product onto my face, neck and decolletage right before bedtime.

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

Upon application, my skin instantly slurped this lightweight cream up, so I didn’t have to worry about lingering product or a greasy residue left on my face. Yes, it took a few days to see results, but I can assure you that this skincare must-have totally moisturized my skin, helped fade away some acne scars and gave my complexion a more rejuvenated glow.

Although wrinkles aren’t much of a concern for twenty-somethings like myself, I can say this product has made my skin feel a lot tighter and more toned with continued use. Even the lines under my eyes firmed up a little bit. And with a creamy-smooth texture, and neutral-calming scent, it’s been a real treat to use this goodie every night. Plus, this formula doesn’t clog your pores at all, so you don’t have to worry about unwanted breakouts or blackheads on the way. It’s just apply, sleep and go with this easy-to-use product.

2nd Week Skincare Growth Factor Challenge Report: Regenica Overnight Repair Fades Away Acne Marks, Adds Glow To Skin

After my week-trial with Regenica®, I was asked to start using the TNS Essential Serum® for one week as well. Designed to enhance skintone and texture for an overall youthful-looking appearance, I will be using this blendable dual-formula after cleansing right before bedtime to see how it works.

It’s important for me not to start using any new makeup or skincare products while using any of the products during the challenge, so, like Regenica®, I’ll be applying it to my face, neck and decolletage areas to compare the results. Stay tuned for the next piece, concluding my overall thoughts on both anti-aging products.
