Do I sound like a broken record yet? I feel like one! But I can't stop talking about it. Urban Skin Rx is amazing and I am so thankful that I found them! The results do not lie. Take a look!
If you're just tuning into my challenge, you can read week 1 here and week 2 here.
As the weeks have progressed, I've updated my regimen a bit. Here are the deets!
1. I no longer take the vitamins because I had an Ulcerative Colitis flare up and had to cut out pretty much everything I could to get it back under control. Mission accomplished but I'm a little scared to take the vitamins again, not because I think they were the culprit but because I don't want to give up the peace my system has finally found or take any chances at all.
2. I ran out of the sample Even Tone Cleansing Bar and replaced it with the Clear Skin Cleansing Bar. I love them both but I think I will return to the Even Tone Cleansing Bar when I have a chance because my face seems a little dry after switching. Perhaps I will use the Clear Skin Cleansing Bar in the mornings and the Even Tone Cleansing Bar in the evenings. I will start experimenting once I have the other bar again. We shall see!
3. My favorite products are the Even Tone Cleansing Bar (gentle and effective cleansing even on my waterproof mascara), the Even Tone Night Treatment (this stuff is AMAZING and I see a real difference when I've used it the night before verses off days), the pH Balance All Skin Toner (so refreshing and it really feels like it is getting deep into my pores), the Super C Brightening Serum (can you say healthy, moisturizing glow without the heavy residue?) and the HydraBalance Instant Moisture Infusion moisturizer. I use the sunblock moisturizer when I am going out without makeup but on days when I am wearing makeup, I don't bother because my foundation has 30 spf in it already and it feels like overkill.
This is the regimen I've pretty much been following every day. As you can see, I'm enjoying the benefits of much clearer and smoother skin. My complexion is more even now and my pores appear to be smaller too. The lines in my forehead are pretty much gone and the creases between my brows no longer linger after I stop squinting. I look years younger and the effects appear to be accumulative.
There is still some slight roughness under the skin on my cheeks (although it is very highly improved and much more difficult to see now). I am not sure if these patches are more impurities that were buried really deep beneath the surface and now they are finally bubbling out or if they are new blemishes just forming due to hormones or whatever caused my acne in the first place. Either way, the Urban Skin Rx line seems to be handling them pretty well. There is no discoloration on these spots like there used to be so they are much less noticeable than these skin wars have been in the past. I was checking out other products they offer and I think I am going to pick up the Clear and Smooth Retexturing Pads because their description addresses exactly this issue. The only reason I haven’t yet is because I don’t want to over do it. Changing products so rapidly can have adverse effects so I am trying to ease into each step now that my skin is adjusting to these products and their ingredients. 🤷🏽♀️
In summary: it's been 3 weeks and I think I'm going to be using these products for a very long time. They work so well. I have one more week to go for this 30 day challenge (technically, 9 days). I am super excited about how well everything has turned out so far. Thank you, Urban Skin Rx! You guys rock!!
