It’s that time of year again. Time to share with you the ten most popular skin care products of this year from Elizabeth Renee Esthetics. With over 100 products in our skin care line it’s great to be an insider, knowing which products our clients have been raving the most about.
This has been a particularly exciting year because we have reformulated much of our line. We’ve taken out parabens and drying sulfates. We are always re-evaluating our products based on our continuing research. You know you’ll be getting the most up-to-date, effective, results oriented action ingredients available.
Throughout this process we’ve noticed some proven winners that our clients repeatedly purchase. They have that extra something special and give our clients the results they are looking for. So here it is, our top ten best selling skincare products of the year, and why we all love them so much.
# 10. Seawhip Soothing Lotion
A relatively new product that acts as a serum or a moisturizer depending on your skin type. Oily skins wear it alone, drier skins wear it under a moisturizer. Formulated especially for rosacea prone skin, it calms skin on contact. Sensitive skins feel soothed as redness is diminished. So if you have red, sensitive skin, it’s a good time to try this product. We’re sure you’ll become a fan of “Seawhip” our favorite anti-inflammatory ingredient.
# 9. Glycolic Serum 15%
Glycolic Acid has been the AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) of choice since the 1990’s. It is a tried and true ingredient for exfoliating away dead skin cells, keeping the pores clear and softening lines. Since Glycolic Acid molecules are extremely small, this AHA gets deeper into skin where it’s most effective. We feel Elizabeth Renee Esthetics’ Glycolic Serum is superior to others because of its healing Aloe Vera base. This makes our Glycolic Serum gentler and less drying. You’ll experience super smooth skin in just a few days.
A few drops of this super serum over your moisturizer creates a breathable barrier that protects skin by keeping moisture in and dry air out – even in extreme weather conditions. It offers perfect protection in the dead of winter when your house feels like the Sahara desert. It’s also great to wear on a trip on an airplane (we all know how dry that air can be). It’s most popular usage is applying a couple drops under your foundation where it instantly creates a smooth-as-glass finish that softens lines and keeps your makeup looking fresh all day.
Is your skin confused? Sometimes you feel oily but you can also feel tight or dry. You probably have combination skin. Clients with mixed skin conditions love this balancing moisture crème because it hydrates without clogging the pores or feeling greasy. Farnesol is the special action ingredient that creates a soothing moisture reservoir in the skin that lasts for up to twelve hours, keeping skin looking fresh and feeling incredibly comfortable day or night.
Of all Elizabeth Renee Esthetics’ moisture-based sunscreens this is by far the most popular for several reasons. The first being that it is mineral based which means that clients (even those with sensitive skin) can comfortably enjoy this essentially chemical free sunscreen without stinging or irritation. The micro-milled zinc oxide we use fades easily into the skin without leaving zinc’s traditionally white pasty look. Plus, it’s a non-clogging formula, with exceptional broad-spectrum protection and it feels is light and comfortable on the skin.
This is state-of-the-art anti-aging at it’s best. Based on 5 international patents, which promote new ingredients to boost hydration, jump start skin cells’ energy (to keep them at their metabolic best), stimulate sluggish stem cells (to act like a younger version of themselves) and contribute powerful antioxidants (to protect skin from environmental damage). The feedback on this product is phenomenal. Hydration is elevated; lines seem softened, skin feels firmer and it suddenly looks smoother. A must have serum!
Our most popular eye crème! The peptides found in Intervention Eye Therapy have been extensively researched and shown to build collagen in the skin, which keeps skin smooth and firm. Intervention Eye Therapy combine’s potent peptides with skin enhancing ingredients that support the delicate tissue around the eyes. This keeps skin looking smoother, more toned and younger looking while easing dryness and softening the look of crows feet.
# 3. Hydraessence
All skin types can benefit by bathing their skin in moisture. Moisture is the important medium by which oxygen, vitamins and minerals are carried into skin cells keeping them plump, moist and happy. The key action ingredient in this product is Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid holds up to 1000x’s its weight in water in the skin. Use it under a moisturizer or mix it with a repair serum to discover its moisture holding magic. We call it the sure cure for dehydration!
This scrub is so popular we can’t seem to keep it on the shelf. What makes it so different? The smooth surfaced particles gently roll over the skin without aggravating the skin the way sharper particles found in walnuts, corn husks, almonds or synthetic brush bristles do. The enzymes in this scrub further enhance exfoliation by dissolving dead protein matter (which is what your old skin cells are made of) on the skin’s surface as well as in the pores. You end up with a cleaner exfoliation, sans the irritation.
And the winner is… for the best selling product for 2012!!!!!
For the fifth year in a row C & E Antioxidant Serum wins hands down as our most popular product. Clients love the way it feels and even better, the way they get results. The highly tested antioxidants in this no sting formula are exceptional at protecting skin from free radical damage. Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate is our chosen version of Vitamin C because it’s the most stable form of the vitamin. It is known to boost collagen, lighten and brighten the skin, heal post breakout marks, decrease blackheads and especially as a super potent antioxidant.
There you have it. Let us know which of these popular products are you personal favorites. We’d love to hear your feedback.
