I love being able to not only test out new skincare products, but I love getting sample sizes. They’re fun to test out, easy to travel with, and contain just enough product to test out the products. SkinCeuticals was nice enough to send over three sample products to try.
It’s a little bad timing since it’s winter in Chicago, but I got to try their Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF50 ($34). Even though it’s winter, it’s still important to make sure you’re skin is always protected from the sun… even if it’s only out for five minutes every couple of weeks. I’ve been applying this to my face before adding my foundation. It feels nice on my skin, and doesn’t have a strong and horrible scent. If you use something like this just on your face, a little bit goes a long way. So you know this will last you a good amount of time.
The Eye Balm ($81) works great for my under eye area that’s annoyingly dry. It also helps correct any age-related damage and can relieve any under-eye puffiness. There isn’t any kind of scent and didn’t irritate my skin in any way. It worked great at hydrating my eye, probably better than any other eye cream that I’ve used.
The Neck, Chest and Hand Repair ($70) works great when your skin is really dry… pretty much how my skin is during this time. I haven’t used this on my neck or chest, but this has been amazing at repairing my dry hands. My hands have never felt this soft after using a hand cream before. The price is a bit steep, but a little goes a long way and it really does wonders for your skin. If you have annoyingly dry hands and don’t mind spending $70, I highly recommend checking this product out!
Overall I’m super impressed with these products. I do wish they were more affordable, but when it comes to skincare, I’m okay with spending a little bit more. It’s important that you use the best possible products for your skin.
