Daily Delicious No. 43

It’s no secret that I love Kate Sommerville Skin Care.  I’ve been using her products almost exclusively for about 2 years now and my skin is very happy.  Two months ago Kate sent over a box of products including their new Dermal Quench with Retinol spray mousse.  Retinol, as you probably know, is THE secret weapon of all those women over 40 with tight, glowy skin.  And as you also may know, it’s never to early to start preventative skin care.  So I set to work with this spray mousse.  IMG_3103I used it at night, every night for a week and really loved the way my skin looked when I woke up in the morning.  There was, for sure, a WOW factor.  Then, my skin started breaking out.

Immediately I ran to google and discovered a lot of people have a bad reaction to retinol.  ‘Please God don’t let me be one of those people!!’  I researched and researched and, even though my skin care girl told me to stop using it, I couldn’t give up.

I decided “everything in moderation…”

So, I took a break from it and quickly my skin cleared up.  After a 2 week break, I tried it again, this time once every 2 nights.  I’ve been doing it that way for a month and my skin is happy and healthy.  My favorite part is that first glance in the mirror when I wake up has stopped making me think ‘God, I’m getting old’.  Now my first thought is “hey girl!  that’s not bad!”  And that little moment, from a little bottle, is totally worth it.

Here are the main points to remember:

·         Only use at night

·         Spray into your fingertips and then apply

·         Use after cleansing and/or exfoliating and BEFORE serum or moisturizer

·         It’s a gentle retinol, so it really shouldn’t irritate skin, BUT to be safe test first.
