I received these products some time ago from Delta Laser. There was absolutely no obligation to post regarding these products, but I wanted to share my thoughts and my skincare journey.
I take my skincare pretty seriously.
A couple of years ago, I began really looking into products that would improve the look of my skin, fight the signs of aging and get rid of blemishes. I’ve tried lots of skincare products, and I’ve liked lots, but ZO skincare has been the very first medical-grade skincare I’ve ever used, and I have to say – it’s made a pretty big impact on my skin.
The skincare routine is quite intensive, but the results I’ve had has made the jump from 2-3 products in the morning to 5 seem worthwhile.
STEP 1: ZO Skin Health Gentle Cleanser
Before I do anything else in my skincare routine, I cleanse. Cleansing is so important to remove any unwanted oils, dirt, or grime from your skin. It gives you a clean base to work on. This cleanser is a soft gel cleanser. It doesn’t feel like it’s stripping your skin, instead, it just feels like its softly cleaning your skin.
STEP 2: ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish || 2-3 Times Weekly
I don’t scrub my skin daily, instead, Delta Laser recommended I only use this scrub 2-3 times weekly. Scrubs remove dead skin cells. It’s important to remove dead skin cells to prevent clogged pores and breakouts. Since my skin is sensitive though, scrubs can be hard on my skin which is why I don’t use the scrub daily. This light icy blue scrub is very fine and very gritty. I usually find that for about 5 minutes after using this scrub that my skin appears fairly red. It doesn’t feel damaging, but it does feel like it’s getting ready of any dead skin on your face.
Step 3: ZO Daily Power Defense
The ZO Daily Power Defense is a serum rich in antioxidants. This serum helps soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles and helps to prevent future damage and ageing. This serum is thick and creamy upon application but then quickly absorbs in. It has a very soft cream-meets-gel texture to it which I find very soothing on my skin.
The final step with my ZO skincare products is the ZO Sunscreen + Primer. I love this product so much, it feels so soft and gentle on the skin, and it helps protect your skin from harmful rays. I often wear just this product on my skin as it has a really beautiful blurring effect which I love. But, you can also easily wear this under your makeup just like any other primer.
STEP 5: Kiehl’s Avocado Eye Cream
My final step is always eye-cream. In the AM, I always use my Kiehl’s Avocado Eye cream as I feel like it instantly brightens my under eyes – and maybe I am crazy, but I feel like the slight green tone to it helps reduce the look of purple/red under my eyes in the morning. I have always taken eye care very seriously, so I always apply an eye cream in both the AM and the PM.
