SkinCeuticals, a worthy investment?

Lets get serious about skincare, as you get older anti-aging skincare is pretty high on the list of skincare concerns. Being in my early almost mid-thirties I can attest to that concern, I have no issue with getting older as its inevitable but having healthy looking skin takes a of bit dedication. Being care-free in your teens and twenties especially careless with sunscreen application starts to show. Although, I've never considered myself to be a sun worshiper I've also haven't been diligent when applying sunscreen. Without having to repeat what we all know, sunscreen is the #1 product against aging skin. However, are all sunscreens created equal, no. Just like not every skincare product out there works for everyones skintypes. What works for me might not work for you and vice-versa. Recently, I attended a launch for Skinceuticals, a top-grade quality skincare brand sold by health-care professionals & Spas, for the release of two new products;
SkinCeuticals Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50
SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF
Not only is an effective sunscreen necessary but a proper antioxidant in a well formulated solution. 
I'm thrilled to try out the two new products as Skinceuticals has been a brand on my radar for quite some time. Since being a member on MakeupAlley since 2004, the skincare forum raves about Skinceuticals. And the reviews are mixed, which is good as one can attest the theory as I mentioned above, not every skincare product works for everyone. With that, I'm here to report that my findings will be posted next month as I truly want to see the results properly before giving my final review on the above products. 
My question to my readers is:
What anti-aging products do you use with good results?
And, do you use sunscreen diligently?

  1. I am very diligent with sunscreen - every morning every day. Right now I'm loving MK timewise daytime solution, it has spf 25.

    For anti-aging I keep an eye out for things with antioxidants.

    Which product are you trying? I've heard many raves about that brand too, esp the super expensive ce ferulic serum. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

  2. I have both of the new releases mentioned. The sunscreen is great, a little goes along way, can leave a bit of white cast if not spread properly. Reminds me alot of Japanese suncreen brands...

  3. Hi there! Just stumbled onto your blog and am your newest follower. Thanks for this wonderful post! I have been wanting to try this but I am so weary about what's actually good out there. I live in Houston,TX so sunscreen is a must! I've been using the entire Shiseido line and it works pretty good. I've also used Olay anti-wrinkle night cream and it's amazing for my skin. Would love for you to visit my blog if you get a chance!
