I am seriously obsessed with serums. Facial serums are like nectar from the beauty goddesses as far as I’m concerned. If you think of moisturizers as the icing on the cake, serums are the cake. So with my serum professor’s hat firmly in place, I put two serums from the Kalologie Skin Care line to the test until every drop was gone. Suffice it to say, I literally stopped short of taking a hammer to both bottles to get to the very last glorious drops of these skin-changing products.
For Day: Rewind Anti-Aging Serum
With featured ingredients that include Resveratrol, Gogi Berry and Hyaluronic Acid, Rewind is a daily must. This freshly scented fluid glides onto skin for a boost of comprehensive anti-aging ingredients that benefit and protect all skin types. With continued use, you’ll see a marked improvement in skin tone and appearance (yes, I did!). The proven skin-relaxing agents quickly penetrate and visibly soften fine lines. An ingredient called “Spin Trap” safeguards against free radical damage with oxygenating and hydrating elements that breathe new life into cells. To use: After cleansing, apply to face and neck and follow with your daily sunscreen.
For Night: Emerge Exfoliating Serum
The three key ingredients in this nighttime nectar are Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Spin Trap. With just a slight tingle, this silky serum absorbs into your skin to resurface while you sleep with AHAs, which dissolve weathered cells that clog pores and obscure the skin’s natural glow. Use Emerge consistently and breakouts are practically non-existent. Fine lines and pore size are noticeably diminished while dullness is a thing of the past. Plus, you’ll notice that absorption of your other skincare products is improved. To use: Apply to clean skin and follow with a moisturizer or night cream if necessary.
Two other outstanding products from Kalologie’s K360 line that work brilliantly with these two serums are the Brightening Activator and Lemongrass + Sprout Detoxifying Mask.
While you apply the Activator like a toner, it’s more of an active exfoliator that brightens and refines with an AHA/Amino Acid Complex. Chinese licorice root extract helps calm redness from acne or rosacea while other botanicals soothe and smooth. The thin liquid absorbs quickly into skin and is best used in the morning as a first step after cleansing.
The Detoxifying Mask is for those days when you’re jet lagged, you’ve stayed out too late or you’re simply in the mood for a deeply cleansing home spa treatment. The creamy white lemongrass-scented mask calls on absorbent mineral clays to remove impurities and a host of detoxifying enzymes to neutralize environmental toxins. Leave it on 10 to 15 minutes until the mask is thoroughly dry and remove with a warm cloth to reveal super clean, freshened skin.
Kalologie Skin Care and K360 products are free of parabens, sulfates, and artificial colors and fragrances.
