Skincare wasn’t something I learned early on like some women did. In fact, I didn’t learn about it until my late 20’s early 30’s. So for me, learning about the different kinds and methods of skincare was very overwhelming for me and costly. Brands would say their products the best, and I’d try it. Then immediately stopped when I noticed no good results.
Fast forward, I saw this brand being talked about by a lot of women, especially black women. Women who had the same issues as me. Despite my having a keloid, it doesn’t deter me from perfecting the quality and longevity of my skin. Sometimes, its not just drinking water and minding my own business, I gotta put some extra work in it too.
I started out with the Even Tone Cleansing bar and the Super C Brightening Serum. I got them from Target. They were kinda pricey for me, but, I look at it as an investment. Still drinking my water and minding my business, I noticed some improvements after a week. My skin tone was mellowing out and I had a glow. My face started brightening up, didn’t have any redness, or breakouts. Alright, what else you got?
So I visited the site and started searching. Oh y’all pricey pricey! For my pockets. I was willing to try more things but was still skeptical about the costs, so at the time, they had the Even Tone products in a travel essentials bundle. If I remember correctly, it was the cleansing bar, the serum, moisturizer, SPF, and a spot treatment. This should last a couple weeks for some real results.
DO NOT GET THIS STUFF IN YOUR EYES! IT WILL BURN! ESPECIALLY THE SERUM.
If I had to tell you, its because, I got it in my eyes, LOL. It’s disgusting too. Yeah, some always gets caught in my mouth too.
After two weeks, I looked different. I looked refreshed, not tired, more lively. Being a new mom, working from home with plenty responsibilities, and not much sleep will have you looking like a zombie or in my case, a “mom-bie.” So I’m walking around my home looking refreshed but tired! My makeup started looking better.
It will be almost a year that I’ve tried these products and I still use them, branching out to new products and even trying out different brands (little by little), but I am loving these products. Like any other brand of skincare, consistent use is key. I used these products morning and night, consistently. The pregnancy glow that I lost after Harper was a few months came back with interest. My skin was overall one color. My pores around my nose shrunk more than normal, and my makeup looked better. Even though our skin has texture and makeup will never be that smooth (unless your skin is super perfect), I could tell my makeup went on better. The oil on my t-zone seemed to be nonexistent. My favorite moisturizer to combat my t-zone is the Hydra Balance Instant Moisture Infusion (night) and the Radiant & Bright Glowing Moisturizer (day).
If you notice in the March photo, the perimeter around my face is slightly darker from my cheeks down to my jawline. Now, its even throughout. Thanks to the serum, my under eyes are not that dark anymore, including around my nose.
