Introducing USANA-Celavive skincare with a giveaway

USANA/Celavive Skincare line for sensitive to dry skin

As an introduction to Celavive Skincare I was sent the Vitalizing Serum to test out. I had spoken with an associate of the new skincare line from USANA and expressed my concerns about the fragrance. I love trying different brands of skincare but didn’t want to have the company send me a line that I couldn’t use. The associate was so kind and sent me the Vitalizing Serum to try and see how I’d fare with the line. I received it as I was waiting for a car to whisk me away for my three week overseas vacation so I quickly unwrapped it, applied some to my hand, knew I could use it, and took it with me in my carry-on. Therefore I’ve used the Vitalizing Serum for even longer than the rest of the line and now know I feel great about recommending these products.

USANA is a worldwide company and is sold in 21 markets. They introduced these skincare products that utilize Incelligence technology which works at the cellular level to provide the necessary nutrients to prevent aging and turn back time. Turning back time sounds like a good idea to me!



Their philosophy is that your skin cells—or keratinocytes—are responsible for creating a healthy barrier that keeps pollutants out and hydration in. They preserve the soft elastic tissues that boost the plump appearance of the skin from the inside. 

The Celavive Cell-Signaling Complex also delivers botanical nutrients directly to the keratinocytes. These nutrients bind with the important signaling molecule PPAR to maximize hydration and optimize the natural lipid production needed to combat environmental stress, supporting your body’s natural defense against visible aging.

By supporting this natural defense process, additional lipids are introduced further into the soft layer of the skin, promoting the feeling of intense moisturization and plumping effects.

I have 6 products for sensitive and dry skin and I’ve been using them for over the last month (and the serum almost 2). My sensitive nose gives USANA/Celavive an okay since the items are not overly fragranced and nothing I notice is long lasting.

Celavive Gentle Milk Cleanser

For dry skin the Gentle Milk Cleanser is the recommended product. This is a creamy everyday cleanser that leaves my skin feeling hydrated while washing away the dirt, oil and cosmetics of the day. It lathers lightly on me and doesn’t leave a film behind. All of the Celavive line contains Olivol Botanical Blend which is comprised of fruit extracts that have been clinically shown to provide 24 hours of rich hydration after just one application.

Celavive Perfecting Toner

Next step is the Perfecting Toner. I know not everyone believes in using a toner but it really is a great step in a skincare regime. This is how you balance your skin and maintain proper moisture levels. Perfecting Toner aids in maintaining your pH level and readies your skin for your moisturizer. Like all Celavive products it’s paraben free.

Whether it’s day or evening there’s a specialized moisturizer for you. For dry to sensitive skin you’ll find Protective Day Cream and Replenishing Night Cream. For oily or combination skin there’s Protective Day Lotion SPF 30 and Replenishing Night Gel.

The Protective Day Cream makes me happy since it has four UV filters making this cream rich and keeping my skin protected. The day cream has SPF30 and wears well under my foundation. It contains Avoberizone 3%, Homosalate 10%, Octinorate 7.5%, and Octocrylene 2%. It’s rare to find that many filters in a moisturizer. Not only are you receiving a good amount of sunscreen protection but you’re getting great hydration from UVA/UVB rays.

Replenishing Night Cream wants to supercharge your sleep. Put your skincare to work while you finally get some rest. Now this is where I usually get in trouble with products that have fragrance but that hasn’t happened with this night cream. I smell green citrus with this so I’m thrilled. It’s not perfumed, it uses botanical extracts which works for me. The cream is lighter in feel than the Protective Day Cream but it’s just as rich. It’s meant to fight the appearance of wrinkles and restore your youthful complexion. I’m a fighter when it comes to wrinkles and Replenishing Night is making that fight more effective.

Celavive Replenishing Night Cream

I’ve saved the best for last. I am a big fan of using serum on my face and a huge fan of eye creams. My personal goal is to try them all. I’m extra glad that I’ve got Celavive in my serum and eye cream corner.

The Vitalizing Serum is the product that I’ve used the longest. I’ve used this with a variety of skincare products, not just Celavive and it works wonderfully with everything. It’s a bit tacky when I first apply it but I let it settle in and then put on my moisturizer. I’ve been using this more at night than in the day since I usually am in a hurry in the morning and want everything done quickly.
Let’s look at what Celavive says that the Vitalizing Serum can do: “Dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, large pores, and the visual loss of elasticity to restore a healthy, youthful radiance to your skin. After just one application, skin is noticeably younger looking. Featuring natural botanicals and cell-signaling peptides, this breakthrough, water-based formulation supports your skin’s natural beauty-preserving functions.”

The Vitalizing Serum has the strongest aroma of the rest of the line, it’s a light floral with emphasis on the light. I find it to be protective and works on all those fine lines. My pores aren’t different but then again it’s hard for any product to make those less of a problem for me BUT they are really only noticeable to me and in close up photos. The serum is the only serum that Celavive makes since it’s good for all skin types.

And then there’s the Hydrating Eye Essence. You know I can’t be without my eye creams, serums and now essence! Two things make this stand out to me. First the delivery system which is so refreshing.

Celavive Hydrating Eye Essence

The top brings a cooling feeling to your eyes which helps with depuffing and dark circles. This baby is one that gets used in the morning when I’m applying my face.

The second thing that makes this stand out is the formula which features a combination of cell-signaling peptides, avocado oil, apricot fruit extract, and gingko biloba extract to visibly lessen the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.

Celavive Hydrating Eye Essence

I like a slightly fuller eye cream in the evening so this Hydrating Eye Essence is my daytime choice. It doesn’t interfere with eye makeup since it dries down. It’s not as emollient as other products but it’s not a cream, it’s more of a lotion. I apply this before moisturizing, I don’t bring my moisturizer up to my eyes so they meet partway.

Now you have the story of my latest skincare regime. Celavive, owned by USANA, is a new line for the US market and can be purchased from their website. If you are like me and want to use products that will make a difference in your skin then you need to try this out sooner rather than later. To help you along Beauty Info Zone has a giveaway for the Vitalizing Serum that we’re excited to offer to one US/Canadian subscriber.

As usual there are two mandatory entries which are checked before announcing a winner. You absolutely MUST be an email subscriber to Beauty Info Zone and you must leave a comment. Not too hard is it? Of course that doesn’t mean that everyone does this so many people get eliminated. The giveaway is open through 5/24/18 at 11:59 p.m. EST. I hope that the winner finds that Celavive will make a big difference in their skin too.  —  Marcia
