Promise Cosmetics + Giveaway!
During my recent trip to Europe, there were a few products I brought with me that completely saved my skin. Changing climates, airplanes and lack of sleep while traveling can all wreak havoc on sensitive skin like mine. It ends up looking tired and dull if I don’t care for it properly. However, I am happy to report that during this trip, my skin never felt better. My makeup never looked dry and flakey and breakouts were at an all-time low.
I would like to thank a few products in particular for attributing to this… and these are a few of my favorites by Promise Cosmetics. A brand rooted in a promise that their products will indeed transform your skin.
My daily skin care regime included three items. The first being the age-defying Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Serum. I swear by serums. In fact, I won’t apply a facial cream without it. Being 30 and doing my best to keep aging at bay, I prefer an anti-wrinkle serum like this one that is formulated to prevent and treat fine lines and wrinkles. You can find a list of the ingredients here. In an effort to lock in as much moisture as possible, I apply serum directly after the shower or washing my face when my skin is still damp. I massage the serum all over my face and décolletage until the product is soaked in. A note regarding thedécolletage- the neck, upper chest area- women often neglect this area as I did for years, but don’t! It also needs attention to prevent signs of aging!
Next up… It is so important, especially while traveling in different climates than your skin is used to, to have a cream that protects from environmental and seasonal elements. Promise Cosmetics’s Ultimate Anti-Aging Cream not only protects, but also helps to brighten skin with hydration, while tackling wrinkles, and brightening dark spots. I applied this cream after the Ultimate Anti-Wrinkle Serum morning and night. I would apply a slightly thicker layer to my skin at night as a kind of moisture mask, and a lighter layer in the morning under my sunscreen and makeup to lock in the moisture.
- Time-saving tip: You can mix in the serum with the face cream and apply them both together at once.
The third (and favorite Promise Cosmetics product) with me on this trip was the LIQUICK Face Mask. It is a liquid face mask that exfoliates, purifies and tones skin in literally 5 minutes. I would apply it after washing my face and before bed. Leave it on for 5 (sometimes 10) minutes and then simply rinse off. There is a slight tingle while using this face mask, but it’s a feeling of deep cleaning more than a sting. You can use the small silicone sponge that is included. I personally use my fingertips to apply. I use a fairly light layer, although you could use a thicker layer if you so please.
It’s made of purifying minerals from the Dead Sea such as magnesium, sodium, potassion and calcium. It also contains moisturizing Aloe Leaf Juice, softening Jojoba Oil and exfoliating Dead Sea Mud. The combination of antioxidant-rich lavender oil, rosemary leaf extract and clary sage oil help soothe skin inflammation and heal rashes. My problem blemish areas that normally break out while I am traveling and at home have been kept at bay with this little bottle of magic. After using it I notice that my makeup goes on flawlessly over my freshly smoothed skin.
- Tip: You can also apply this mask to different areas of your body. It is gentle enough to use regularly even on sensitive skin areas such as the derriere and chest.
