RoC Retinol Resolution

Give Good Face for the Holidays with the Roc Retinol Resolution

I am a beauty Ambassador for RoC. I have received compensation for this post.

Holiday parties are on the horizon honey! People you haven’t seen all year will be in best form and you can’t afford to be caught slipping. While you are picking out your finest in holiday gear be sure to pay your skin special attention in these most important weeks leading up to entertaining season. Whether rocking Uggs to the party or those stilettos that live in the cloth bag at the top of your closet, nothing will set it off better than your skin being at it’s best.

RoC is encouraging women to get ready for the Holiday season by taking their #RocRetinolResolution and taking heed to a few skincare tips by New York board certified dermatoligist, Dr. Debra Jaliman. Dr. Jaliman has these tips to offer:

“With the holidays fast-approaching, it’s important to get into a regular skincare routine so you can maintain a heathy glow for the festivities. Your body works to repair the skin overnight, so I always encourage a good bedtime facial regimen. RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream is clinically proven and contains a mix of pure retinol and an essential mineral complex, which is designed to work through the night to help reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles. RoC® RETINOL is up to 2x stronger than imitators based on vitro RETINOL activity in this night cream.”

“Holiday parties may result in a few late nights, so it’s important to stay hydrated and use an eye cream to combat dark circles. I recommend RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream, which works immediately to smooth skin’s surface. Start now and with continued use you’ll notice a visible reduction in not only those dark circles, but also wrinkles around the eyes, crow’s feet and puffiness!

“You may apply more makeup than normal during the holiday season, so it’s extra important to cleanse your face at night with a gentle cleanser. Useful tip, use lukewarm water instead of hot water to avoid drying out your skin.”

These are just a few useful tips to use not only during the holidays but year round.

RoC 5 in 1 correxion night cream

{Beauty Favorite} RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Night Cream

I am a RoC Ambassador and received this product for review. All opinions are mine.

Over the years I have really become more conscious about my skincare. I’ve mentioned before that I am really not brand loyal and will try anything but I’ve come across a staple with the RoC  Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Restoring Night Cream. As a RoC ambassador I have been sent samples of a few of their product offerings, and I have liked the majority of them but this night cream is

E V E R Y T H I N G.
From the smell to the texture to the results, this night cream is one that must find a home in your beauty product arsenal…or one you should at least try especially for the price.

I only bring and review products here after I’ve tried them for at least 2-3 weeks. Well after week 1 I knew I was sold but said I would stick to the script and it still has not disappointed, if anything it has made me more of a fan as the weeks progress.

What’s so great about it? Glad you asked.

  • Texture: It’s feather light but thick at the same time. I am aware that is an oxymoron but just imagine something that is silky to the touch but has the feel of a heavier moisturizer. It goes on so smooth and sinks in almost immediately
  • Smell: If you are not a fan of scented products I think this would still be okay with you. I love the smell, its light but leaves a relaxing scent.
  • Packaging: I’m a packaging lover. The bottle is heavy, I believe it is glass but it is durable. Mine has taken a few tumbles with no nicks. I love it because it seems so luxurious and high end on my vanity but  affordable. Well priced items with luxury touches are always a win in my book. This jar retails for $28.99 and you can find it at your local big box retailer or drug store.
  • Noticeable Results within 4 weeks: Within a few days I noticed a change in the look of my skin the morning after putting the cream on.  Your skin will look hydrated, and dewy as I like to call it. Around 3 weeks I started to notice that some of the discoloration in my skin was starting to blend in and not be so noticeable, and my skin was firmer and just over all healthier looking.

I am in love with RoC Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Night Cream. In love. It is understandable that every skincare product won’t have the same results on everyone, however if you have combination skin like I do, for the price I would say give it a whirl.

Dermalogica Atlanta

A few weeks ago I had the awesome opportunity to visit the new Dermalogica concept store in Atlantic Station for media night.

For those not familiar, Dermalogica is an awesome line of skin care products that are primarily used by professional estheticians. The great part is you can also purchase these products for use at home.

The story of Dermalogica’s start is amazing. The founder of the company Jane Wurwand started the company as the International Dermal Institute (IDI)  where she taught estheticians vital skills to be successful in the industry. Eventually  her passion for proper skin care  evolved into a full fledged skincare line. Talk about working your passion! How inspiring. I even got the chance to meet and chat with her at a private dinner after the event.

The Dermalogica concept space in Atlanta is primarily a learning space where skin care professionals in Atlanta can come and learn, however they also offer services to the public to include:

Face Mapping: This service is FREE of charge and allows a professional to analyze your skin from your forehead to collarbone identifying problem areas  and offering product suggestions for treatment.

Skin Bar: If you have any questions or want to learn more about Dermalogica’s line of products the door is open! Come have a sit and chat with professionals about your skincare concerns and learn how to  use the products. You can stay there as long as you like and ask all the questions you want…however there will be no drinks for you. Sorry!

BioActive Peel: BioActive Peel helps reduce acne, pigmentation and signs of premature aging by safely removing dull outer layers of skin and helping the skin underneath regenerate. Skin is left smoother, brighter, and softer than ever.

dermalogica microZone: Take 20 minutes out of your day to get your skin repaired with flash exfoliation, extractions and a moisture boost.

I’ve been faithfully using some of products I was given and I am smitten with them. I will be going in the next week to get my face mapped and  get in on some of the services they offer and I’ll be sure to share the experience with you.

Are you using or have you ever used Dermalogica’s products? Do you love them? Do you have a skincare regimen?
