It Cosmetics just launched a couple of new beauty and skincare products that include the Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream and Brow Power Filler Volumizing Tinted Fiber Eyebrow Gel. I have been loving and using the It Cosmetics skincare + beauty products regularly for fact that the entire selection suits my skin and the results are quite visible.
Starting with the Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream (C$90) is a retinol serum-in-cream that works on fine lines and dark spots. This formula is infused with dual retinol meaning that it contains a blend of free and encapsulated retinol that reaches at least 15 layers into the skin’s surface in just 1 hour. At the same time, the formula is consists of vitamin E & B to soothe and hydrate the skin while balancing common effects of retinol usage like redness, dryness, and flaking. It is designed for all skin textures.
I have tried to stay away from retinol products as much as I could for the fact that it adds sensitivity to the skin or I use them during the wintertime on my nightly skincare routine to keep my skin away from getting more sensitive.
It’s important to know when you’re using any kind of retinol products to make sure you wear your sunscreen regardless of sun exposure on a daily basis for the time you’re using retinol.
I have been using this Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-in-Cream for the past 4 weeks (avoiding the under-eye area) and I have been loving the formula. I love that the formula is not too intense and works on sensitive skin. Although I don’t have any fine lines and wrinkles on my complexion yet dark spots and discoloration is some of the concerns that I have introduced retinol into my skincare routine.
Although it claims to be safe using it twice a day on morning and night skincare routine I take extra measures to keep my skin from sensitivity so I only been using it on my nightly skincare routine. It’s very easy to use and the results are quite visible.
Up next is the Brow Power Filler Volumizing Tinted Fiber Eyebrow Gel (C$32.00) is a waterproof tinted eyebrow get that immediately fills, shapes, tint,s and sets brows for up to 16 hours and comes in 4 shades. The formula is infused with Biotin that maintains the healthy growth of the hair and Green Tea and Lecithin keeps the hair hydrated and nourished. I have been loving the brush-out trend and natural look of the brows lately and yet this is that one-step brow product that I have been reaching to achieve that look.
The applicator is unique and quite practical to use. The innovative design of the applicator allows you to fill in brows with its micro-flocked tip and molded bristles to tint and shape the brows. So the product does everything you need to do from making the brows looking fuller to color the grey brows to fill in and set it for the entire day.
I received it in two shades Universal Auburn & Universal Dark Brunette which I found both were not a perfect match to my brows but I was able to manage to wear the Universal Dark Brunette. You do want to start from the arch of your brows and fill in first with the tip of the applicator then brush the entire brow to set it. In case you deposit more product accidentally an angle brush or a spooley will take care of it.
Bottom line, I loved these new additions from It Cosmetics. I was actually looking for a subtle retinol formula for my skin and this couldn’t get any better. It works great on sensitive skin and you really see visible results when using it religiously. At the same time, the Brow Power Filler been something I have been reaching out to on daily basis. It gives my brows that nice brush outlook while sets it for the entire day. It slightly has a learning curve it but once you know how to shape your brows with it, it’s going to be a hit for you.
