If you haven't heard the news yet, TULA, one of my favorite skin care companies, launched a new product TODAY - Pro-Glycolic 10% pH Resurfacing Gel, a toner with a blend of probiotics, glycolic acid (AHA), and hyaluronic acid. (more information on specific ingredients at the bottom of this post)
The Resurfacing Gel's unique formula, a combination of probiotics and acids, balances the pH levels of the surface of the skin leaving it smooth, hydrated, glowing, and protected against free radicals and other harmful elements that speed up the skin's aging process - something none of us want!
When the skin's pH is in a balanced state, it appears plumper, more radiant, and able to better fight off bacteria, inflammation, and harmful effects from the environment (free radicals). If unbalanced, the pH being either too acidic or too alkaline, the skin's vulnerable state may lead to a range of issues from irritation, swelling, and breakouts to a dulled appearance, premature aging, and irreversible damage.
Toners have been problematic for me in the past and never worked. Each one that I tried irritated my skin to the point of terrible acne breakouts or caused it to become excessively dry, leaving it dull and unhealthy. After trying toner after toner after toner, I finally gave up and refused to try any others.
A few weeks ago, TULA was kind enough to send me the Pro-Glycolic 10% pH Resurfacing Gel to test out pre-launch. I was so excited about receiving a new TULA product to try that I didn't even notice it was a toner. It was good that I failed to notice, because I likely would've taken much longer to try it given my prior experiences with toners.
Thinking it was an anti-aging treatment gel for the skin, I began using it in the morning every day after washing my face and before moisturizing as instructed. I didn't expect to see results rapidly, and after reading up on the product and realizing it was, in fact, a toner, I didn't expect any results to work in my favor.
But, shockingly so, It not only worked on my skin, it's noticeably improving my skin by the day. Prior to me incorporating the Resurfacing Gel into my morning skin care routine, the surface of my skin was beginning to look dull, dehydrated, and textured. Within just a couple of days of use, maybe three, my skin had a subtle glow, appeared plumper, and even a bit smoother. It's been close to two weeks of consistent use, and it keeps getting better and better.
The Resurfacing Gel is really two products in one - a toner and an anti-aging treatment. This is a huge selling point for me, because it means I save a little time in the morning by reducing my routine from four steps to three: 1. wash, 2. tone/treat, 3. moisturize. That may not seem like a big deal, but every second counts for me in the AM.
And, TULA has priced this product very reasonably at only $34 for 2.7 fl oz. You'll be hard pressed to find a good toner and separate anti-aging treatment for that price.
If you haven't tried any of the TULA products before, now's the time. And this is THE product! The Pro-Glycolic 10% pH Resurfacing Gel is safe and recommended for all skin types, including more mature skin. Even in your late teens, 20's, and 30's, you should be incorporating at least one anti-aging product, in addition to sunscreen, into your skin care routine as a preventative.
I included some of my favorite TULA products below that not only help the skin look and feel amazing, but have anti-aging benefits as well. Begin taking great care of your skin now, if you're not already, and bring that aging process to a screeching hault or snails crawl at least! And always remember - It's the only skin you have, treat it with care! - Jill xoxo
