I am so in love with SUPER Products by Dr. Nicholas Perricone. I had been using a combination of other products for a long time but ever since pregnancy and breastfeeding hormones have taken over my body, they just weren't working for me anymore. My skin was constantly dull, dry, and I was having lots of breakouts. With most of my work as a blogger and photographer having issues with my skin isn't a huge deal, but as an actress, it's really important that my skin looks great. So, you can imagine my delight when these...
...showed up on my doorstep! I had wanted to try SUPER products for a really long time because I've read great things about them on websites and in magazines.
I have been using the SUPER products, which were specifically selected for me by the getSUPER team to help clear up my skin and solve brighten my dull, dry skin, for two months now. I wanted to give them a real try before I shared my thoughts on them with you all. I have to say, I'm totally amazed. My skin has cleared up and I have much fewer breakouts than before. My skin feels moisturized, fresh, clean, and it looks brighter. The products they sent me quickly addressed all my issues and I truly feel that my skin is back in balance. I know this sounds crazy but I actually felt a difference in my skin overnight. While my skin still isn't perfect, it is remarkably improved.
Here are my thoughts on the products they sent me...

SUPER Sweet Clean Cleanser
I love this cleanser. It feels so amazing I find I don't even want to rinse it off... and it smells fantastic. It moisturizes while it cleanses so it doesn't dry out your skin.
SUPER Brightening Activator
This toner exfoliates, brightens, and tightens my skin which makes me look fresh. I love this melon-powered activator, it gently exfoliates and moisturizes.
SUPER Sun Kissed with SPF 25
With my fair skin I have to wear sunscreen rain or shine but putting all those chemicals on my face makes me nervous. This tinted moisturizer uses zinc oxide and turmeric as UV protection. I was afraid the tint might have been to dark for me, but it blends in and looks great. They also offer an untinted version.
SUPER Bright Eyed
This eye cream works immediately to fresh and tighten the skin around my eyes. I use this at night for moisturizing and repair, and in the morning to "wake up" my skin. It is also a great primer for under-eye makeup. I always have dark circles and this allows my concealer to go on easily and helps it look clean and natural.
SUPER O-Mega Moisture
I didn't realize how dry my skin was (and how much that was the cause of my breakouts) until I started using this rich moisturizer every night. It smells so good and feels amazing. When I use this I feel like I'm really doing something good for my skin and special for myself.
SUPER O-Mega Oil
When I first looked at this oil I thought, you want me to put oil on my oily skin?! But my skin was so dry, and even peeling a bit around my nose, a few tiny drops of this oil at night made such a dramatic difference. I also use a drop or two on Gwyneth's cheeks when they get dry. It works so wonderfully and doesn't feel oily or greasy at all.
A couple of other things... I really love that these products use plant based ingredients to combat common skin issues... leafy greens to normalize oil production, chia oil to hydrate skin, and turmeric for UV protection. Since I strive to eat healthfully, it only makes sense to me that what your put on your body is as important as what you put in your body.
I'm also impressed by what's not in these products... they contain NO parabens, propylene glycol, mineral oil, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic dyes and fragrances. As if that weren't enough their packaging is also made with 80% post consumer paper and recycled wood fiber from well-managed forests, they use wind power and print in a carbon neutral facility.
Every product I've written about ranges between $30 and $50, which I think is really reasonable for what you're getting in each bottle. After using them for two months, I can see most of the products lasting between 4-6 months. Like with all quality products, a little goes a long way.
I am so thrilled with my new skin care routine which is mostly available under the Uneven Skin Tone line and the Hydration line, and I can't wait to try more of their products like their 3-Minute Facial, their Head-to-Toe Hyration line, and their 24/7 Wrinkle Protection line. I highly recommend the SUPER products if you're looking for something new.
Note: SUPER did send me these products to try free of charge but they did not ask me to write a review. I was so pleased with their products that I wanted to share them with you. I have put a link to their website over with my Sponsors (they are not actually a sponsor but I wanted it to be easy to access their site).
