In addition to seeing lots of old favorites, I was also able test out a few new-to-me products that made the winner's circle. The first is the Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum from No7. This serum should be used in both the morning and at night for best results. Simply apply to clean skin before your moisturize and wait for the magic to take place. You'll see results in as little as two weeks with this fabulous serum. I've been using it about that long, and already the lines around my eyes have diminished, and my whole face just looks younger and more radiant. The serum is also a non-greasy formula that applies evenly and leaves your skin feeling soft. As a bonus, it's hypo-allergenic which is a great perk for those with sensitive skin, and it has a nice pump dispenser for easy access.
The Healthy Skin Accelerator Treatment is another unique product. I've never tried anything quite like it. The color is brown in appearance, but it's clear when you apply it to your skin. The purpose of using it is to repair your skin and it worked way better than I expected. I had this one huge pore on my forehead and after using this for only a week, its barely visible anymore. It also made an old chicken pock scare a little less noticeable. It has a very silky feel to it, and glides on smoothly, leaving skin very soft. I was very happy with the results I've seen, and I also loved to see that it's not tested on animals.
I was really happy with the result I received from these two products, and I'll definitely be exploring more of the winner of the CEW Insiders’ Choice Beauty Awards. Be sure to look for these fabulous beauty products at your local CVS and other retailers nationwide.
