Sephora Age-Defying Skincare Class Review

  • 83%

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in daily routines that we forget the simple ways we can take better care of ourselves. No more holding back, winter is the perfect time to turn things up a notch, try something new to mix up your skincare habits.

Honestly, as I age, the added wrinkle makes me rethink, question my best skincare choices. So, when it comes to skincare, I’m always ready to try something new and diversify my current beauty routine.

I have to say though that I’m really impressed by the infinite array of beauty brands, lotions and potions that we can find in the US! Am I at Ali Baba’s cave? You can easily feel overwhelmed. However, with good advices from dermatologists and beauty advisors, you can create a personalized core regimen and develop good habits to preserve your youthful glow.

You can as well attend the AGE-DEFYING SKINCARE class at Sephora.

Face basics:

First of all, I took off my makeup using the express Sephora cleansing wipes. Then, during the consultation, we figured which products will fit the best my skin’s needs.

Step 1 Cleansing.

Equipped with a disposable headband, the double cleanse started out with an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser (Foam or Cream Cleanser) to properly and thoroughly cleanse the face. I wiped them off each time. In fact, we need two different formulas to properly cleanse our face and oil cleansers are essential to your cleansing routine.

Products used:

Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil

La Neige
Multi Cleanser for all skin

Step 2 Mask.

I used a facial 1-minute mask to make my skin appears more radiant thanks to a gentle peeling action.

Products used:

Capture Totale Dreamskin
1-Minute Youth Perfecting Mask – New Skin Effect

Step 3 Hydrating.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate, in and out. Investing in a moisturizer is the simple addition to your regimen and something your future self will thank you for!

The instructor began with an eye serum and an eye cream. Then after, she applied a moisturizing cream, but layer a vitamin C serum underneath, and don’t forget your neck, décolleté, and ears.

Finished? Nope. The one guaranteed to shore up your chances of gorgeous skin in the decades to come is a protective moisturizer broad spectrum. So, if you want to enjoy complexion perfection your whole life long don’t miss it. Keep it up with a broad-spectrum SPF 30 hydrator for an extra boost of protection from environmental aggressors like pollution and UVA/UVB rays.

Products used:

Dr Dennis Gross
Skincare Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum

Dr Dennis Gross
C+ Collagen Brighten & Firm Eye Cream

Ultimate revival Serum

Sunday Riley
C.E.O. C+E Protect + Repair Moisturizer

Urban environment Oil-Free UV Protector Broad Spectrum SPF 42 For Face

For an effortless and flawless looking skin, I needed a quick pro correcting and concealing coverage that contains antioxidants, vitamins and essential skin emollients to get rid of dark circles under my eyes as well as spots and imperfections here and there.

Products used:

Cover FX Cream Concealer

Pro tip to treat your spots and imperfections:
Acne solutions Clinical Clearing Gel

My skin really felt refreshed, rehydrated and softer! I still can’t believe the class was free. You should all try it on, believe me you’ll not regret it. Psst ask for MIA if you happen to make it at the 5th avenue Sephora store, she is the best!

Next, I will carve out some time to shift my focus to creating a nightly routine to unplug and prep myself for bed and will share it with you!

Meanwhile, I would love to hear about your 2018 beauty resolutions. Do you have an age-defying skincare regimen that helps you maintain younger-looking skin? Did you or will you attend one of Sephora’s complimentary Beauty Classes? Tell us below!
