Erno Laszlo Vitamin C Peel Mask

Influenster was kind enough to select me to try and review the Erno Laszlo White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel mask. The set retails for $100 and has the following description:

Peel and reveal. Powered by super-nutrient Vitamin C, our clarifying two-step peel gently polishes skin as it fades dark spots and discoloration. Step 1 gently exfoliates; Step 2 activates brightening and moisturizing actives—you simply peel away to uncover instant radiance. Your complexion feels instantly new: smoother, even-toned and illuminated. Protective antioxidants and collagen-boosters combine to refine and renew skin, such as age-defying actives and brightening ingredients, including:

    • Vitamin C—the formula’s star multitasker—to reduce dark spots and dullness, lighten skin and jump-start collagen production.
    • Carrot seed oil to heal and balance dry or chapped skin, while helping fight age spots and sun damage.
    • Lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin so it’s properly prepped to absorb brightening, hydrating and healing nutrients.

I had never used a product like this before, so I was very excited to try it out. First, you use the smooth peel all over your face and rub it into your skin for about 3 minutes. This smells super citris-y and really wakes you up! Then, you mix the liquid activator into your hands and massage it into your skin for one minute. Finally, you rinse with warm water when you’re done.

My skin felt and looked wonderful after using it. It really got all that dead skin that can be tricky to get off and left me with a pretty glow. It did not irritate my skin at all either.

It is suggested to use this set weekly. I’ve had it for about a month now and have been doing just that. It’s been a great addition to my skin care routine and I’m actually considering getting more when I run out of this. I hope it lasts me quite a while, though.

JERGENS Wet Skin Moisturizer Review

nourishing-monoi-detail

I received the new Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer in my Wellness VoxBox from Influenster and it was definitely my looked forward to product when I found out that I was one of the 5,000 selected to receive this particular VoxBox! According to their website:

There’s no need to wait for skin to dry before applying or to rinse away sticky residue. The revolutionary formula goes –and stays—on your skin and not down the drain. With this one-of-a-kind lotion, just apply to wet skin before you dry for a superior way to moisturize—quicker than ever.

Sounds pretty great, right? I’ve taken two showers now and tried out the Wet Skin Moisturizer and I’m in LOVE! A little goes a long, long way – unlike normal lotion for me. I feel like I use tons of it to get myself all covered. Anyways, it goes on quickly and easily. I think the water droplets still on your skin help spread it. Then you just pat yourself dry with the towel. It took me approximately 10 seconds to do both my legs and about twice that for my whole body. The best part, though? I got dressed right away and my clothes weren’t sticking to me! It was great. I feel like I have to wait for the lotion to dry for at least 10-15 minutes to comfortably put clothes on, especially jeans.

My skin was so soft from this lotion. I’d highly recommend this! 9/10
