I had the amazing opportunity to test out some of the most luxurious skin care products I have ever used. If you haven't heard of Phytomer
, you are in for a real treat. Headquartered in France, Phytomer invented marine cosmetics, which use the most precious ingredients from the sea to strengthen and recharge the skin with energy. Over the past month, I set aside my normal skincare routine and used only Phytomer skincare products. In other words, I got to pamper myself morning and night.
Here is the line-up. I felt like I had died and gone to heaven with all of these products. Let's break them down by groups and I'll tell you a bit about each product...
Perfect Visage Gentle Cleansing Milk (available here): LOVE this! Very gentle and very effective and smells like a day at the spa. This bottle is HUGE and will most likely last me about 3 more months! One of my top pics! Great price for the amount that you get. I would recommend this to anyone.
Rosee Visage Toning Cleansing Lotion (available here): Do you like the smell of roses? How about the smell of roses on your face? It smells positively heavenly and is really calming on the skin.
Hydrasea Ultra-Moisturizing Polarized Water Serum: This was great for the dry winter months. I put it on before applying my makeup and it held the moisture all day long without feeling heavy or greasy. I probably won't need it during the summer as it isn't quite as dry.
Hydra Original Thirst-Relief Melting Cream (available here): AMAZING. This was great for dry weather, but I will continue to use it all year long. Again, massive bottle. I barely even made a dent in the 30 days and I really feel like this is worth every penny. My skin was perfectly dewy and my make-up went on nice and smoothly. One of the best moisturizers I have used, hands down.
Night Recharge Youth Enhancing Cream (available here): I switched off between this and the Initial Youth Cream at night. This is a thinner feeling cream that felt my skin soft and supple in the morning. Great bang for the buck too!
Initial Youth Multi-Action Early Wrinkle Cream (available here): Amazing. It is a much smaller bottle, but I have probably 2 months left of use out of it. I loved the slightly thicker consistency and the fact that a little goes a long way. It smells wonderful without being too perfumey. AND I could see the results! This cream is geared more toward 25 and up so it was perfect for me. If you have the budget, I would highly recommend this!
Youth Contour Reviving Wrinkle Correction Cream Eye and Lip Care (available here): Thick and luxurious. Again, a little goes a long way. I used this baby every single night and loved how soft and smooth the skin around my eyes was in the morning. It also helped with any puffiness or dark circles.
Vegetal Exfoliant (available here): I used this mask twice a week and it did wonders for my skin! I didn't think my skin could get any softer after washing it with the cleansing milk, but this did it. It is very gentle and mild. One of my top picks!
Hydra-Matifying Control Cream: This stuff is pretty close to magic. It is a daytime face lotion that gave my skin a matte finish and minimized the look of my pores. It isn't super hydrating, but will be a lotion that I use on a regular basis in California where the weather is a lot more humid.
Acnipur Blemish Solution Fluid (available here): I used this lotion every night before my nighttime cream. It helped keep my skin nice and clear without drying it out. It is very mild, so you might need something a little stronger for already existing larger blemishes.
Seaweed Soap (available here): I didn't think much of the soap when I got it, but after one use I was hooked! The seaweed in the soap exfoliated my skin and I didn't dry up like a prune the second after getting out of the shower! The smell is to die for. I kept it up high in my shower out of the water when I wasn't using it. It will last me at least another month and I seriously look forward to using it!
Dietary Supplement (available here): I took 2 everyday along with my normal vitamins after eating a meal. It helps keep your skin healthy and clear from the inside out.
Moisturizing Body Milk (available here): I don't consider myself very picky when it comes to body lotion.....but after using this I am! I know I've said it before, but you guys, the smell! It just smells luxurious. I don't know how else to describe it. It is thin and lightweight and any skin it touches instantly feels like my baby's face. Magic lotion, I tell you!
Sea Water Bath Packets (available here): I'm not a huge bath person. Mostly I just sit in the bath and think about how many feet have stood on the surface that my body is laying on. But these bath packets are awesome. I have been doing the Insanity workout program for the last few months and adding these packets to my bath have helped my muscles relax and helps my body de-stress.
