Awake Hydro Force Treatment - Oil-Free

Awake Hydro Force Treatment - Oil-Free

This is perfect for my oily/combination skin when I need effective hydration that keeps the greasies at bay! It's formulated with everything you need to keep oilier or combination skins well hydrated. This glided on my skin nicely in the morning, didn't look greasy, and continued to hydrate for most of the day. This is a great product for the spring and summer when my skin is oilier, but also when I need something a little heavier in the winter...especially when the air is cold and the surface gets dehydrated. Many moisturizers either clog my pores, cause itchiness or give me bumps. Hydro-Force Oil Free Treatment is a light moisturizer, but it moisturizes well. I have not had any problems with it breaking me out, and the little dry patches I usually have on my lower cheeks have disappeared. If what you're after is just pure hydration with no annoyances like fragrance, alcohol or dye, then this is for you. Note: I would love to see this formula with added sunscreen for the summer!

These are small curved gauze-type strips soaked in a soy based concentrate that I laid on my under eye area for about 10-20 minutes. I found after several weeks (using them 2x week) of use that my under eye area really was more hydrated and it also helped with the dark circles. Upon the first use my under eye area was definitely plumper, but after using the masks for a month, I did noticed a significant reduction in fine lines and dark circles. The packaging is also innovative. There are 10 masks which you place on the under eye region. Please note: Once you open the disc that holds the eye patches and add the liquid you have to use the patches within 10 weeks, once you open the product you must use it otherwise they dry out. The eye masks are not individually wrapped so you need to use one at least once a week (but believe me it’s not a hardship!). It really added moisture to my eye area and made that area brighter and fresher. This is a nice addition to my overall skin care routine when I just want to really treat myself with a beauty indulgence!

Sekkisei was one I was not previously familiar with, but I’m really pleased with my first outing. Although it’s labeled a “lotion”, its consistency is that of a slightly thick water, which I applied with a cotton pad. After using this lotion each day after cleansing in the AM and PM for over three weeks, I could see my skin getting brighter and clearer each day. I had an amazing glow that has made me never want to give this product up. It made my skin feel smoother, so soft and clean/refreshed. A truly lovely luxury for the skin!
