I started my first skincare regimen in high school when I was plagued with terrible teenage acne. Back then, I had really oily skin and as I grew older, I noticed changes in my skin – particularly how dehydrated my skin felt despite the oiliness. It was then that I realized that one reason for my profusely active sebaceous glands was because my skin was simply trying to hydrate and balance itself out. When skin is dehydrated, it produces oil to compensate for the lack of moisture. So I had to edit and introduce new products into my skincare routine in light of new self-discoveries.
I’ve been using this superb moisturizer from Perfective Ceuticals for more than a month now and I will definitely recommend this to anyone with the desire to fight wrinkles, dullness, dehydration or just aging in general. I’ve had great results with both the Perfective Ceuticals serum and the Perfective Ceuticals eye cream so much so that I am actually gifting them to loved ones this Christmas (I know they will thank me).
Like the Perfective Ceuticals eye cream, this guardian cream is rich and does a swell job of moisturizing. It has got time-released hydrators that work to hydrate over time while anti-oxidants and skin lighteners work to eradicate free-radicals and age/sun spots. Because of its thick and rich texture, I use this at night and I’ve been waking up to glowing, fresh skin.
I’ve got dark spots left by past acne and sun bathing and it’s taken me a long, long time to lighten them. I will get them removed at the dermatologist one day when I can spare the 10 days down time but for now, I need something less intensive and I am pleased to report that this cream actually lightened those spots.
I don’t have any wrinkles as yet and so I can’t speak for its anti-wrinkle properties but my skin did feel and look firmer and it did help to plump the skin around my cheeks. The soothing, anti-inflammatory formula also works great after skin procedures – I slapped this on after a session of microdermabrasion and it provided relief and replenished moisture and gave a glow that really complimented my microdermabrasion session.
