The Search to Find the Perfect Retexturizing Gel…I’ve searched the shelves of beauty stores, testing different friends’ suggestions and trying out various brands to find the perfect retexturizing product that I could not only use on myself but suggest to my clients as well. It may not sound like a difficult task, but because our skin is always changing due to hormones, sun damage, environmental effects and even just plain ol’ everyday stress, it’s great to find a product that can be used with various skin types from sensitive skin, acne prone and even mature skin all while creating a wonderful glow regardless of the skin type! I am very cautious when it comes to my skin since my late twenties and now in my early thirties I have had acne prone, oily skin. I have tried retexturizing products that were so strong that under a magnify lamp in the esthetician’s suite you could see tiny little scratches to your skin (I don’t care how dry your skin is…but harsh products like that are harming your skin rather than improving it!). I’ve also found retexturizing products that caused me to break out after a few tries, and there have been wonderful products that would put a huge dent in my wallet if I even contemplated purchasing them! (I have kids’ sports, back to school shopping and bills I have to worry about, rather than purchasing an overly priced product that you’re only purchasing for the name.) I needed something not only effective but affordable.
I Have Found The One I Love!Ladies and Gentlemen…the search is over!!! I have found the one I love! (Note to my husband, you’re not being replaced…I promise!) But I have discovered this amazing retexturizing gel from Clearista which was reasonably priced and it has found its way into my daily routine with my other favorite products! It’s Clearista’s Retexturizing Gel and it came in such cute packaging that it even looks good out on your vanity with its blue container and gem like lid!
How I Use Clearista’s Retexturizing Gel In My Routine…Clearista’s Retexturizing Gel is very effective but gentle enough where it can be used one to two times a day. Due to my history of breakouts, I recommend for myself and anyone with acne prone or sensitive skin to use it once a day. On those days that you have a lot of makeup on, or thick sunscreen use it not only in the morning but once at night. This will not only exfoliate your skin but also help rid your skin of congested areas and prevent future breakouts. After I am finished cleansing my face with my favorite cleanser, I apply a quarter size amount of the retexturizing gel on a freshly washed, damp face and massage in a circular motion for about 45 seconds and rinse with luke warm water. What makes this gel such a great product is that it’s packed with jojobo beads which is an amazing gentle exfoliator and the beads give you not only a scrub, moisturizer and a serum all in one bottle. You can use the gel on your upper arms, hands, feet, backside and anywhere you need a little exfoliation. After I rinse my face, I spritz with a toner then apply my moisturizer and I’m set!
Overall Review of Clearista’s Retexturizing Gel…Overall Clearista’s Retexturizing Gel is like a microdermabrasion in a bottle! It’s a lifesaver! As much as I love getting facials (even though I can do my own, I enjoy the relaxation of having it done by another Esthetician) but I simply don’t have the time or energy to do so. The convenience of having a product that works so well with instant results and a wonderfully reasonable price tag is pretty difficult to find, so when you discover a great one, you just gotta hold on tight and never let go! It did everything from hydrate, tighten, soften and smooth my skin and leave me with a beautiful glow. I loved the fact that even with all my freckles, I was able to achieve a smoother; more even toned brightness after several uses. It is a great product and I will be recommending it to my friends, family and my clients. Hope you guys enjoy the product as much as I do! You’re going to be hooked!
