Hi friends! You all know that I am such a skincare junkie and I recently had the pleasure of testing out a bunch of Skin Actives Scientific Skincare so today I am revealing my thoughts on each of them! If you haven’t heard about this brand before, they are an amazing Logical Harmony approved skincare brand that focuses on bringing the best scientifically tested ingredients to their customers in an affordable fashion. Skin Actives offers a bunch of vegan options too and of course is 100% cruelty-free! Keep reading to hear my thoughts on the products pictured above!
This Salicylic Wash is one of the best I have ever tried and I’ve tried a TON. It’s also unlike any that I have ever tried too. Allow me to explain… The product is extremely thin, almost like water, and it smells kind of like rice to me. There is a very small amount of exfoliation and you definitely have to shake it well before pumping it into your hand. The best part of all is that this is EXTREMELY gentle. I don’t have any kind of irritation after using it and it really does help clear up acne. All other salicylic washes I have used were never this gentle! This is absolutely one of my staple products in my new skincare routine and I can see it being a keeper for anyone that tries it. I’m usually very hesitant when it comes to trying new face washes but this really blew me away. Definitely one of my favorites out of the bundle of Skin Actives products that I tried.
If you have ever wished for a product that you didn’t have to put all over your face to clear up your acne, the Zit Ender is it. Wow is this product amazing! Again, I have tried a lot of acne treatment products and spot treatments to boot but this was unlike any of those! The Zit Ender is packed full of green tea and high-tech protein that instantly cut a zit’s size in half without the harmful ingredients that typical acne products contain. I was soo impressed with this when it literally reduced one of my cystic acne spots drastically OVER NIGHT! I use it all of the time now whenever I see a big zit popping up. I think this product takes the cake out of all of the Skin Actives products that I have tried so I highly recommend everyone trying it out!
To continue on with acne treatments, the Acne Control Cream is to be used at night to clear up your blemish-prone skin. I love that Skin Actives created an acne cream that doesn’t dry out your skin because that has always been my struggle with clearing up my acne. If you are someone who has that same dilemma, this could be your new favorite product! I will say that it was a little too gentle for my cystic acne so I do have to use the Zit Ender in-between using this cream to really clear up my skin. I think when using all of these Skin Actives acne fighting products together in a good routine, you will definitely see positive results like me. My favorite part about this acne cream is that it does not burn when you use it and you can thank all of those amazing scientifically proven ingredients for that!
The Pumpkin Enzyme Peel is one of those products that I fall in love with more and more with every use. I have super sensitive skin so the idea of any kind of peel freaks me out. I instantly think of burning red skin but that was NOT the case with this peel at ALL! In fact, it’s actually created for sensitive skin folks! The pumpkin not only gently exfoliates the skin, but it also provides it with vitamins and nutrients. It’s no wonder that my skin looks fresh, glowing, and healthy after using this product! I am hooked. I use it about once a week at night for 5-10 minutes before I hop in the shower. I think it’s pretty safe to say you will notice an immediate difference in the texture of your skin after one use and with each use after that it gets even better!
So I obviously knew I probably wasn’t going to absolutely love every product that I tested out from Skin Actives and the Anti-Aging HydraMist was sadly one of those products for me. It could be that my skin is pretty youthful looking already so I didn’t really see results from using the HydraMist? I am not sure but I will say that I love the idea of the product and the size is perfect to stick in your bag for on-the-go hydration. I found that the spray irritated my skin a little and made it feel a little tight and uncomfortable which is typical of anti-aging products for me. I think I am just not there yet for needing a product like this so I am super curious to hear thoughts from anyone else that has tried it!
One thing that I think is SO cool about Skin Actives is that their products are all very customizable. I have seen a few other users mix up their own formulas and tailor a product to their actual needs. I love that they offer products like this AHA/BHA Exfoliant in small tubes so you can easily add it into your moisturizer per say. If you are looking for real amazing results, the Alpha-Beta Exfoliant Solution will provide them. This product has minimized my pores, controlled my oiliness, and smoothed out my skin drastically. It is a bit harsh on the skin so they recommend only using a tiny bit once a week. If you are looking for even-toned skin, this will be your jam! AHA/BHA Exfoliants are known to produce amazing results and I am very pleased with this product!
After using a lot of the Skin Actives products I have mentioned above so far, your skin will need some boosting and the Antioxidant Serum is perfect for that. I love using this in the morning or especially after using the Pumpkin Enzyme Peel because this instantly gives back all of the hydration to your skin. It is very gentle and does not add any excess oil or anything like that. My skin feels and looks amazing after using this! Again, if you are someone that is looking to balance out the redness in your skin, this will definitely help! I love that it is full of amazing ingredients too.
Last but not least, since I have a history of psoriasis I consulted with a Skin Actives rep and she recommended I try their Olive Anti-Inflammatory Cream. I have tried tons of different treatments for my psoriasis so I was really excited to try something completely new to me. This product has olive extracts, cetyl myristoleate, and a low water content to help hydrate, soothe, and reduce red itchy skin. Upon first use, I was a little shocked to see that the product has a orangey-red tint that shows up on your skin. I definitely would recommend only using this at night because it will get on your clothes otherwise. It didn’t necessarily heal my psoriasis but it did cut down the itch and inflammation by a lot! I can see this being perfect to use in the cold dry months when my skin is super chapped. If you have eczema or psoriasis, I highly recommend checking this out!
