Why this three-step routine is what your skin needs right now.
I have never been one to stick to a skincare routine (where are my immediate results?) but last year I was #influenced and purchased some of the most beloved—and simple—skincare items from the England based skincare company Aurelia.
Aurelia's Probiotic Skincare line comes with the claim that their ingredients continuously protect, restore and balance the skin from within. They help reduce the damage caused by pollution and stress and activate the skin's natural ability to repair itself, maintaining equilibrium.
The 3-Step Starter Set comes with all the basics, listed below, as well as a sample of the Cell Repair Night Oil for when your skin needs a little extra hydration. Living coastal in Southern California the ocean mist keeps the air fairly humid, yet each Winter my skin gets quite dry and needs some attention. When I started using the Aurelia routine my skin was needy! A few months in the results have been subtle, but oh so worth it.
Step 1: Cleanse
Miracle Cleanser & Bamboo Muslin
Starting and ending my day with this gentle cleanser is so much better than using make-up wipes. Instead of having my skin feel a bit irritated or raw after using makeup removers, the Miracle Cleanser gently removes make-up and any other impurities. I will say, some mascara is a bit harder to remove, but being gentle and consistent, the cleanser does its job. The Bamboo Muslin that comes with it is beyond gentle on the skin and drys quickly after a quick hand washing. With the faint smell of camomile and eucalyptus, this cleanser is a solid 9 losing points only for ease of makeup removal.
Step 2: Serum
Revitalize and Glow Serum
Right out of the gate I give the serum 5 stars!! It's lightweight on the skin, in an easy to use eye-drop bottle, and gives a genuine glow. It soothes my skin even if I didn't know my skin needed soothing. If I could pick one product to use of the bunch, or of anything I've tried I think this would be it! I am already anticipating when I will run out, so I can make sure I have a back-up bottle at the ready. #obsessed
Step 3: Moisturize
Cell Revitalize Day Moisturizer & Cell Revitalize Night Moisturizer
Two sides to the same coin, these moisturizers book-end the routine. Genuinely, I can feel my skin drinking in these moisturizers. They do not leave your face feeling oily or make you overly shiny which is great especially for the day moisturizer so you can feel confident leaving your house without looking like you added goop to your face that doesn't soak in. You don't need a lot of product to cover your face and neck, so these small bottles last a while. This starter set has lasted me over two months thus far, so a little goes a long way.
Cell Repair Night Oil
I received this mini bottle of Cell Repair Night Oil as a free sample in addition to the 3-Step Starter Set. This would be the last step in the routine on a night where I felt my skin is a bit more dry, as we are just out of the Winter season, I used the night oil at least three times a week through March. This oil feels heavier than the rest of the products, but after waiting about 30 minutes I can sleep on my pillow without leaving residue. It definitely makes a difference when I wake up in the morning after using the Cell Repair Night Oil on two fronts: One: having my skin feel thoroughly moisturize in the dead of winter; Two: I have fewer sleep lines when I wake up after using the Aurelia products as they rejuvenate my skin!
