Skin Authority Review
Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.
When I was younger, I used to get lots of compliments about my skin. However, since turning 40 my skin has been much drier with a duller appearance. Therefore, it is important for me to use the best products possible in order to keep my skin as healthy as possible and looking its best. I have also had early skin cancer on my face and neck so I make it a top priority to protect my skin from the sun as much as possible. Living in Florida my entire life, I still like to have a nice healthy tan but prefer to do it the safe way which is a sunless tanner.
Skin Authority offers a full line of prestige skin care which helps skin look more radiant. I was also drawn to this company because the products have not been tested on animals and contain no parabens or added fragrances which can be harsh on my skin.
I am currently using several products from Skin Authority including the new Moisturizing Mist, Sunless Tanner and Exfoliating Cleanser. These three products are a great way to get skin looking great for summer. The Skin Authority Moisturizing Mist ($29) was designed to give skin an extra burst of much needed moisture as it “infuses” the skin with needed vitamins and nutrients which is perfect for my extremely dry skin. The first thing that I noticed after spraying this lightly on my face is that it is very refreshing and cooling. I like that it does not feel heavy on the skin and it features exclusive AOX Technology™ (essential vitamins, antioxidants and fatty acids) which can help slow down the appearance of aging skin like mine. I am using this product in place of my normal skin toner and apply it before moisturizing. I notice that my tinted moisturizer applies much nicer when I use this product prior to application. I especially like that the spray makes it so convenient to use and it is also easy to toss into my gym bag or travel bag to take it with me when on the go. I will definitely continue to use this Moisturizing Mist as it is a “must-have” product in my opinion for the summer!
I really love the Sun Glow Duo from Skin Authority which includes a full sized Exfoliating Cleanser and Sunless Tanner in one money saving value set priced at only $49 (normal price for both products is $78)! As much as I like to have a light tan to my normally very fair skin, I have had a difficult time finding a sunless tanner that looks natural on my face……until Skin Authority. Before applying the sunless tanner, I used the Exfoliating Cleanser to remove dry, dead skin creating a smooth surface for the sunless tanner. I really like the microbeads in this product which did an effective job but was gentle so my skin felt great without becoming increasingly dry or sensitive. I then applied a small amount of the creamy Sunless Tanner to my face, making sure to blend it evenly all over and into the hairline. I love that it does not have a harsh smell like other sunless tanners that I have used in the past and it absorbed quickly into the skin. In about five hours, I had a natural looking tan that looked as though I had gotten a hint of tan from the sun. My husband even chastised me thinking that I had forgotten my required daily sunblock and was surprised when I told him that it was from a sunless tanner. I reapplied additional product even five days in order to maintain the tan and love that a small amount of product goes a long way so it is a real value in my opinion….and a much safer way to get that perfect summer glow!
