Splurge vs Save Skin Care

Thursday, April 30, 2015

As a licensed esthetician for almost 10 years now, I am all about results oriented skincare products. So when I was recently contacted by the CVS/pharmacy beauty team to test out their new CVS/pharmacy exclusive skincare line, Skin+Pharmacy, the first thing I did was research.  I checked out the line, read more about the ingredients and was very impressed.  Not only are Skin+Pharmacy products affordable, but all of their products contain performance driven ingredients that are comparable to pricier skincare products that I have used in the past.  Skin+Pharmacy products are also proven to treat specific skin concerns from acne to the signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and hyper-pigmentation.

Trying out new skincare products can be somewhat intimidating so above you will find products which you may have already heard of on the pricier side, and then the products that I am currently using and loving from Skin+Pharmacy.  Both products are being compared based on similar ingredients.

You can find the CVS Skin+Pharmacy products listed above here: 1/2/3/4/5/6 and read more about what products I have been using below:

1. Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Glycolic Pads - These are the best!  They combine the benefits of a light facial peel along with the convenience of using at home.  They are formulated with soothing ingredients such as calendula extract and Vitamin E and formulated without any fragrance, alcohol or oil.  I have noticed my skin looks brighter and more refreshed since using them.

2. Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Retinol Night Moisturizer - I have been loving this!  This contains an overnight time release of retinol as well as Vitamins C and E.  It has been giving my skin that extra hydration that it was craving over night.

3. Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Daily Cleanser - This soothing cleanser contains shea butter and Vitamin A, C and E to help fight free radicals. I love how it makes my skin feel clean and soft without over drying it.

4. Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Therapy Retinol Eye Cream - This contains Vitamin K to help diminish dark circles and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. I have been loving this! The delicate skin around my eyes appears smoother and the dark circles which always seem present are slowly beginning to lighten. Yeay for that!
