I’d describe my skin care routine as thorough but often I’m missing a great serum. I use a C serum in the morning but I need to supplement my C serum with a comprehensive anti-aging serum. I only have a handful of anti-aging serums and I haven’t been using them. Up until now, I just wasn’t satisfied with anything I tried. I’m thrilled to be partnered with NeoStrata and have the opportunity to test this product and share my opinion with you. I found a lot of skin serums left a tacky feeling on my skin or contained too much fragrance. Finally, that has changed! NeoStrata recently released a new product, SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum and I’ve been using it and I love this serum! It’s formulated to help volumize the skin, add luminosity, soften the appearance of deep wrinkles, and improve skin laxity.
If you have been following me for a while, you know I’m obsessed with skin care. I have noticed so many changes in my skin as I’ve been getting older. The texture is changing, it has become more sensitive, there are fine lines, and it tends to get dry. Sometimes I feel like I can’t keep up and I’m fighting a losing battle. Especially, when it comes to the skin under my eyes. That area is so delicate and crepey, I am constantly looking for products that will smooth and plump the skin under my eyes. The Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum contains Aminofil® which helps plump and firm skin resulting in a more volumized and sculpted appearance. Aminofil® is a patented amino acid discovered by NeoStrata in 2013 and is an anti-aging breakthrough. I had not previously explored a NeoStrata product with this newer technology so I’m excited to finally have the opportunity to do so!
Another feature of the new NeoStrata SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Serum that attracted me is the effect it has on the tone of the skin. The serum contains Gluconolactone, which enhances exfoliation leading to improved clarity. It also helps to even out the skin tone. My skin tends to hyper-pigment in the summer so this was another highly desirable component of the formula heading into the winter. And then, we always hear about Hyaluronic Acid, right? But have you noticed when using products with hyaluronic acid, the plumping effect dissipates within a few hours? That’s because Hyaluronic Acid molecules are not all the same. Some types can be too large to be absorbed by the skin resulting in surface hydration only until the product evaporates. NeoStrata has incorporated a Hyaluronic Acid with a low molecular weight to offer more than short term surface hydration. The Hyaluronic Acid used in their formula can penetrate the skin for improved and longer lasting benefits. This is exactly what my skin needs! Especially, under my eyes.
As I mentioned earlier, my skin has become more sensitive over time. It’s more likely to get red after I apply products or irritated the following day. This product was of particular interest to me because the Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum is non-irritating, alcohol free, oil free, and contains no parabens. It’s very frustrating when I try a new product and it leaves my skin fire engine red. This serum doesn’t contain fragrance either. Usually, added fragrance is what irritates my skin so I was pleased to see fragrance was not one of the ingredients in this formula. In the test trials involving this new serum, results were measured at 12 weeks and 100% of the users observed smoother and more luminous skin. Over 90% of the users demonstrated clinical improvement with fine lines, firmness, and clarity. Other clinical benefits were also reported but the bottom line is, this is a promising serum! The before and after photos on the NeoStrata website show significant changes in fine lines and skin tone with consistent use of the product.
I haven’t had an opportunity to use the product for 12 weeks but in the couple of weeks I’ve been using the serum, I have noticed increased skin luminosity. On the weekends, I usually go without makeup and I definitely noticed my skin looked more radiant. I’m very excited to continue with this in my skin care routine. The recommended use is 3-5 drops twice daily and I’ve found 3-4 drops covers my face and next thoroughly.
The SKIN ACTIVE Tri-Therapy Lifting Serum is currently available on the NeoStrata website. ($100 / 1 fl. ounce). NeoStrata offers a 30-day money back guarantee on their products which allows enough time to try the product and be confident you are satisfied with your purchase.
