It's always hard when to know to add new products to your beauty routine. I'm always testing out products, and still have plenty of old favorites, but I get extra excited when I'm able to try out luxury skincare brands, especially when I'm not familiar with them. I do want to let you all know before you keep reading, these products are pretty expensive, and I probably would not just randomly buy them if given the opportunity.
Columbia Skincare is a brand that is mostly found in high-end spas and derm offices, and the brand aims to heal the skin inflammation and promote hydration. The brand's Probiotic Line mixes plant stem cells and amino acids to aid skin in healing and renewing itself. Probiotics have been popular in the last few years as a way to supplement and promote good bacteria in our bodies- it's found in a variety of yogurts and comes in a pill form too. So...why not use skincare products loaded up with probiotics too?!?
The probiotic line of Columbia Skincare touts itself as the first ever of its kind for topical use. I've been using both of the products at night, since I believe this is when our skincare products perform best. I start with the Probiotic Concentrate which serves as a serum that helps the skin renewal process. I really enjoy how this serum is packaged, product is dispensed from a dropper, which is my favorite for a serum. It has a bit of a thicker consistency than some other serums, but I use about two drops and then apply. It's not sticky and provides a good base for the last step...hydration.
I follow up with the Probiotic Complex, which is the moisturizer component to the line. I use a little bit more than a dime size amount and apply all over my face and neck. I've found it to be super moisturizing and my skin has truly been looking fabulous each morning when I wake up. I typically wake up with redness, and I must say that I have noticed a difference in the level of redness each morning- it's gone down by quite a bit, which I'm loving!!
If you are a lover of luxurious skincare products and need some rejuvenating products for cell renewal, these might be perfect for you!
