Just when you think you're in the clear with acne outbursts, the first signs of aging start to develop. Pimples and fine lines — double whammy! If this sounds familiar, you might be experiencing something that's known as transitional skin. So far, the market for this unique skin type has been largely untapped, until now.
Recently, I had the opportunity to try out a new line from Biore called the Preservation Skincare collection, which targets those during that in-between phase. It comes out soon, and promises to reduce fine lines, increase radiance, strengthen the skin's barrier function, and neutralize free radicals. But does it work? Find out what I thought, along with a list of the products when you read more.
A little goes a long way with this collection. One pump — even half a pump — of each product does the trick, otherwise, my face felt a bit oversaturated, almost oily. After a few days of usage, my skin was smooth, and I didn't get any breakouts. A major plus. The only things I'd like to see added would be a toner and perhaps an acne spot treatment. Oh, and I was just so-so on the radiance factor. Other than that this line is worth a shot if you're willing to spend $67 for the entire regimen.
- The Clean Things Up Nourishing Gel Cleanser ($7) — High-foaming with a fruity scent.
- Even Smoother Microderm Exfoliator ($15) — A not-too-aggressive creamy exfoliator with a fine grit.
- Dual Fusion Moisturizer + SPF ($15) — Loved the fact that this hydrator has an SPF of 30 that didn't make my face turn white.
- Hard Day's Night Overnight Moisturizer ($15) — Has the texture of a serum/moisturizer. It was a bit heavy for my liking.
- See The Future Fortifying Eye Cream ($15) — I love gel eye creams, and this one did indeed reduce my puffiness. I'd like to see a little more moisture in this one, however.
