Review: Exuviance Illumination Duo for Radiant Skin


Ahhh the glow of summer skin – in my case a result of high humidity.  Despite my diligence with sunscreen, over time I have developed uneven sunspots appearing along my jaw and hairline, and switching between the muggy weather outdoors to air-conditioning tends to sap my skin of its radiance.   The experts of NeoStrata have come to the rescue with a specialty line of skincare, Exuviance, with its patented formulas of AHA’s, PHA’s, and vitamin C, to refine and refresh skin tone, and increase collagen production, revealing healthier skin.

Twice a week I use the Exuviance Performance Peel AP25, which is a two-step peel that begins with an activator pad and is followed up ten minutes later with a neutralizer pad.  The peel is not harsh or stinging, and the skin glows following the treatment, which with regular bi-weekly use reduces the size of pores, lightens sunspots, and leaves skin smoother and more radiant.

Every night I use the Exuviance Illumination Duo which combines the moisturizing  Evening Restorative Complex mixed with the super-antioxident Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster, a 100 pure active Vitamin C powder that you blend together into a small dollop in your hand before applying it to your face for a super potent cocktail.  The cream is rich but not greasy at all and very hydrating, helping improve the skin’s elasticity and tone.  Together they are a powerhouse combination.

My three way approach improves the overall texture and resilience of my skin, giving me a more even skin tone, and a glowing, radiant complexion, which will remind me of summer long after humidity makes way for fall’s cooler days.

Get glowing with an even skin tone and healthy complexion

The skin mirrors overall health and everyday life makes skin tired and stressed, with uneven skin tone.  Birth control pills, forgetting to use and reapply sunscreen, pregnancy, poor diet, dehydration, and lack of proper sleep and exercise, can all lead to dullness, redness and irregular pigmentation.  A few months ago I started using  Neutrogena’s Rapid Tone Repair with Broad Spectrum SPF 30, with great results.  I use a high spf sunscreen every single day and reapply, but I was starting to develop brown spots around my hairline that made my skin look patchy and uneven. I began using Rapid Tone Repair by day and the night time version as well, and still using my own high spf on top during the day.  Now my skin is beginning to clear in those areas, my skin tone does look more even, and I have a nice glow.  My makeup routine is much less time consuming as I don’t need to use much concealer, and have even began to skip any sort of foundation on some days.  A more even skin tone without peels and harsh treatments – my kind of solution to a glowing complexion!
