Cosmedix creates a line of skin care products to suit all skin types and correct and repair problems such as blemishes, age spots and wrinkles. I love that you can find convenient Cosmedix skin care kits that are customized with the products you need to take care of a variety of skin care concerns. Their formulas use only the purest form of ingredients and never contain parabens, fillers, artificial dyes or harsh actives. The end goal of their skin care is to provide fast and effective results.
I was sent some of their most popular products, including the Clear 3-piece Kit ($39; clarifies oily, blemish-prone skin) and the Liquid Crystals Holiday Bundle ($119; rejuvenate and rehydrate skin).
The Clear 3-piece Kit includes:
- Purity Clean: Facial cleanser gently exfoliates and clarifies skin
- Refine: Vitamin A refinishing treatment encourages the appearance for a clearer, smoother, balanced complexion
- Clarity: Calms and clarifies irritable, problem skin with a blend of witch hazel, willow herb and vitamin A
The Clear 3-piece Kit is a simple skin care regiment that has been clinically proven to clear skin and minimize the appearance of pores. I found the Purity Clean cleanser to be gentle on my skin, and noticed immediate reduction in pore size. The Refine and Clarity products went on easily and I didn’t experience any sort of tingling or burning effects. Since it is winter time, I need to use an extra moisturizer (the Cosmedix Emulsion Intense Skin Hydrator) on my skin to keep it from getting too dry. I love simple skin care routines that don’t irritate my skin with harsh ingredients. The 3 step process you get with the Clear Kit is a nice set for anyone with oily, blemish prone skin to be able to gently correct problems.
The Liquid Crystals Holiday Bundle is an excellent value at $119, saving you $45 when you purchase the bundle instead of purchasing the Emulsion Intense Skin Hydrator ($74) and Opti Crystal Eye Serum ($90) separately. This set arrives ready for gifting in an eco-friendly silvery bag (as seen in the above picture).
The price tag may seem a little steep, but you will see results — fast — with these products! The Opti Crystal Eye Serum is one of Cosmedix’ bestselling anti-aging products. It’s great for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate skin found around your eyes. It also works to diminish dark undereye circles. The product itself is a very pretty opalescent liquid that is thick and should be used very sparingly. I found that a little goes a long way and that it is easiest to apply by gently tapping it on with your fingertips instead of trying to spread and smooth it out on your skin.
The serum can be used day and night, but I only used it at night because of its thickness and the fact that it was fairly sticky. Nightly use gave me noticeable results within just a few days. I am in my 30’s and have unfortunately started to develop fine lines around my eyes. I definitely want to keep my skin’s signs of aging to a minimum as long as possible and appreciate the help I got from the Opti Crystal Eye Serum.
A gentle, rich and hydrating lotion is exactly what you will get with the Emulsion Intense Skin Hydrator. Shea Butter is one of the main ingredients – and I have found it to be wonderfully effective at relieving my winter-dry skin. This lotion is especially formulated to soothe dry, aging or recently resurfaced skin.
