As I am getting older I am starting realize my skin is not as youthful and fresh looking as when I was in my twenties. And the beauty products I used before having my daughter in my early thirties no longer work as well. So what to do? Say yes when someone asks you to try a new skin care routine! Petunia skincare offered me the opportunity to try out three of their products in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. Of course I agreed. I need to find some products that work for me and I have no clue where to start.
The first product I was going to work with was a derma roller. It looked intimidating! And scary! When I looked it over I did not understand why anyone would want to take tiny little needles and roll them all over their face or body? I was expecting it to be extremely painful so I wasn’t sure if I could bring myself to do my whole face. But it did promise to help with blackheads and that really interested me. I have them all over my chin. Just tons of little blackheads. I know it’s gross but it’s the truth. So my plan was to use it to try and relieve some the congestion. So I decided to try it in the evening just incase it went bad I would have some time to recover. I gently rolled the derma roller over my chin area. You know what? It didn’t hurt that much. really no more than when I try to clear those blackheads on my own. So I did this for a few weeks. After a few weeks I started to notice the blackheads didn’t look as bad. My pores were not as noticeable. So it did work!
The second product they sent me try out was revitalize eye serum. I really don’t use anything around my eyes so I was interested to see what this could do for me. I do have puffy eyes and dark circles under my eyes for most of the year and this serum says it can help with that. With the spring allergies in full force I was eager to try it out and see if I would find some relief. I started using the serum in the morning after I washed my face but before I put on my makeup and in the evenings after I had washed my face and getting ready for bed. The serum felt very relaxing and soothing when I applied it. On some mornings when my eyes were very puffy I would notice a dramatic difference with in an hour of applying the serum.
The last product they sent me to try hyaluronic serum. I was not sure what to do with this at all. After reading the multiple benefits hyaluronic serum provides I was hoping I would see an improvement in my overall skin hydration and just my overall appearance. Currently I feel like my skin is dry, dull and lifeless. I also have those dark pesky circles and puffy eyes. Hyaluronic serum can also help with fine lines and wrinkles too. So this was a very simple product to use. I simply applied it to my whole face after I was done cleansing. Very simple. I did this too in the morning and evening. After a week I started to notice a difference. In the beginning I was using quite a bit of product but I noticed a substantial decrease by the end of week 2 in the amount of product I needed. That right there told me they hydration levels in my skin was improving and I also was not having that tight uncomfortable feeling either.
By using a combination of all three products on a daily basis I really did see some great results. My chin is no longer a congested midfield of blackhead, the puffiness in my eyes have decreased and my overall appearance has improved. My face does not look so dull and dry.
