I love to try new skin care, but honestly, it takes a while to decide whether a line is truly effective or not. Marcia and I both believe that to give our readers the best information, it’s essential that we try out every product we review for an extended length of time. Skin care may feel nice the first week, but then suddenly break outs, dry spots, and adverse reactions can appear…so one really needs to try these products for at least a month to get a true read on them. As such, we don’t often review small, limited use skin care samples here at the BIZ…there just isn’t enough product to get an accurate idea of how well it works, and if the claims are true.
But I am going to make an exception for Beautisol.
Beautisol sent the BIZ small samples of three treatment products: Eye Want ($55 retail, $48 Club Sol); Bright Eyed ($45 retail, $39 Club Sol); and 99% Pure Peptide Rescue ($120 retail, $105 Club Sol). Club Sol is an autoship program, and you can decide the amount of time between shipments. I used these samples for two weeks and I was very, very impressed.
If you look at the before and afters on the website, they certainly look amazing.
The first product you apply in this troika of anti-aging products is Eye Want.
Eye Want is a serum applied to a cleansed face at night only. It’s purpose is to reduce crows feet wrinkles. It has something called 10% Snap-8, which goes after the muscle contractions, thereby softening those lines. It also has peptides, which I discuss in detail below, as well as Retinol along with Edelweiss Stem Cells. You apply this lightweight serum to your crows feet and it works to firm up the skin and soften the lines. I find the serum soaks in quickly and has no discernible fragrance.
The next product is Bright Eyed.
This is a creamy mousse that is applied around the eye area. It’s full of peptides – a type of amino acid. I have long been a fan of amino acid products, I find them to be extremely effective at reducing the depth of wrinkles by relaxing the skin, stimulating collagen production, and general healing. It also has Borage Oil, something even Paula Begoun says is extremely beneficial to skin as an anti-inflammatory as well as for keeping moisture in the skin cells. With this system, Bright Eyed is applied to clean skin morning and night (at night after Eye Want), around the eye area, between the brows, and on the nasal labial folds.
The final product to apply is the 99% Pure Peptide Rescue Serum.
This is the more pricey product, but I have to say it impressed the heck out of me. This is also a serum, and it has a whopping 8 different peptides. It is applied to the entire face and neck twice a day. This product firms up the skin, and also brightens and reduces any hyperpigmentation. I find the serum to be very moisturizing, and it takes a few minutes for it to completely soak in. It’s like heaven to my combination skin.
To finish the skin care routine, you then use your day time moisturizer or else your night-time moisturizer (if you use one). You can use the Beautisol products separately, although I feel you will probably get the most dramatic results by using the whole system.
I wish I was able to report on a full six month trial, because I think it would be quite dramatic. For now, though, I can say that I am more impressed with my two-week trial than I have been with any other treatment in a very long time. The 99% Pure Peptide Rescue Serum in particular is expensive, but I believe it’s worth the investment.
If you are looking for a new anti-aging program, I recommend you check out this line. I think the products are wonderful, and they are the most promising anti-aging combination I have seen in quite a while. Plus, the products are organic and cruelty-free.
I am thoroughly enjoying growing older – but I am also very thankful for products that help me look healthy and younger than my age. – Lisa
