Every now and then I get a chance to check out something genuinely exotic. I'm talking about really high end ingredients, the latest technologies and exquisite formulations. If you have to ask for the price, it's not for you - you know what I mean. While it doesn't happen to me that often, exotic beauty products are wonderfully luxe and so delightful to experience. Most recently, I got the chance to sample this train case filled with high end vitamin C and exclusive stem cell products that promises to lighten age spots and reduce wrinkling from Adore Cosmetics.
Using their stem cells and potent blends of vitamin C and E, the simply named Vitamin C Treatment Kit from Adore Cosmetics takes reducing photoaging to the next level. Adore has created three very specific vitamin C products to work in harmony together to reduce age spots in a dramatic way.
Step Two is the Targeted Age Correcting Serum, which does not contain an acidic element. This serum focuses on a different kind of vitamin C, ascorbyl palmitate. Unlike other forms of vitamin C, ascorbyl palmitate can penetrate more deeply into the layers of the skin without losing potency.* This product then binds that ascorbyl palmitate with Nikol VC, another form of vitamin C that protects the skin from free radicals, a leading cause of skin wrinkling.
The third and final step is the Dark Spot Targeting Treatment Cream, which utilizes ascorbyl glucoside to help lighten dark spots, as well as triggering skin to boost collagen production. All three of these products also include Adore's exclusive plant stem cell extract, which help rejuvenate skin's texture and overall look.
It's worth noting that all of the products are packaged in opaque bottles or tubes with pump dispensers, so your vitamin C isn't diminished before it reaches your skin. It's imperative for the stability of the vitamin C that it be kept away from light and from the introduction of additional bacteria (from your fingers!). This packaging accomplishes that goal beautifully! Plus it's delivered in a beautiful train case, unlike any other skincare I've tried.
This system contains quite a bit of Vitamin C. It's the exclusive layering effect of the different forms of vitamin C that affects how your skin looks and feels. If you have sensitive skin, you may need to test this gently and slowly to avoid irritating your skin. I didn't have any redness or discomfort while using this line, but if you are sensitive, go slowly! This could be intense for someone with sensitive skin.
I was able to test this extraordinarily luxe collection for the last two months. The first thing I noticed was how wonderful the product felt on my skin. Instantly soothing, this also blurs fine lines and wrinkles upon application. My skin felt incredibly hydrated and smooth with no irritation. My makeup even applied more smoothly and didn't fade as quickly as it did on days where I just wear an oil and sunscreen. After using the Vitamin C Treatment Kit for several weeks, my dark spots, specifically around my cheek bones are lightened. My smile lines seemed to have plumped slightly and my mole (near my eye) is virtually undetectable.
It's not everyday I get to experience something like Adore Cosmetics. My skin looks wonderful and the product feels fantastic. Now if I could only afford it on a blogger's salary. The price point is higher than I have considered spending for any beauty product and I'm not pretending it isn't. But if you are living the dream and have stacks to burn, this is your next purchase. Be sure to check out Adore Cosmetics for exclusive savings! (I'm talking big savings!)
