Can you believe a month and a half has passed with my new skincare regime? Lets see what the results are!
Between changes in skincare, and some major changes in life, this month has been a good one in my opinion, but maybe not a good one for my skin. I definitely put myself and my face through its paces with a shocking amount of late nights, and worrying days, but right now is the first time in a good few months I can say I am truly happy and myself again in my life and job. It has been a long time since I have been able to say that, and I am definitely thinking about writing a post about it – somethings tells me a skincare post isn’t the place to chat about my life’s issues – but this month may not have been the best time to give Image a good trial, or it may have been the best given the paces I have put me and my face through.
In my last 2 posts I have gone through my consultation with Jennifer Rock, and also what each of my skincare products claim to do! Now you observant ones will notice I am writing this post on week 6, and I obviously omitted week 3, but there is method to my madness.
Honestly I didn’t see the point in going though the effects on my face in week 3 given that I wanted to go in depth in my last post, and I was under such stress in week 4 and 5, with far to many stress breakouts, I didn’t think it would be fair to give Image its final assessment during that week.
I also wanted to give my skin a good blast with image and really see what the results were – one things for sure the photo below also proves how tired I was taking that before photo, also please please do not judge the eyebrows in the before photo – they got a tidy 2 days later!!
Personally I can definitely see a brightness to my skin that was not there before. While I did suffer a few breakouts, from the late nights and not so nutritious foods I was putting into my body, I can definitely see a reduction in the fine lines I once noticed on my forehead.
One thing I definitely took away from this month, other than a new obsession for Image Skincare and Jennifer Rock, is that the simplest things can really have an effect on the skin. I never noticed how easy breakouts can pop up from what you are putting into your body, Jennifer’s term ‘ Feed the Skin From Within’ has never seemed more appropriate.
As a lover of makeup, I will regularly get clogged pores. While these have not completely gone, there is a serious reduction in them. When I wake up my skin feels cleaner – if that is possible.
While I have still used my Clarisonic, with the Image cleansers of course, I’ve noticed a deeper clean using the cleansers from Image over ones I have used previously.
Any negatives? The only negative I have, and it is something that does not bother me but may bother others, is that the Image skincare products are quite scented, in particular the Ageless Total Facial Cleanser. While I love the cleanser – it can have a strong smell just bare that in mind.
Other than that I can safely say I think I may be hooked to Image. As a blogger I am extremely fortunate to receive some incredible products, and a lot of skincare product, so I will be trying out some other brands and letting you all know how I get on but for the moment I think me and Image are getting along quite nicely.
Happy Cleansing –
